Summer bestsellers to shop

Chill-O-Matic Instant Beverage Cooler

When you don't want to wait for a refreshing drink, this beverage cooler should satisfy your thirst in no time — in just one minute, to be exact. Once you add ice to the machine, it will spin your 12-ounce can until it's cold. It's perfect for soda or bubbly water, as the brand says the machine does not cause fizzing or foaming.

Koolgator Cooling Neck Wrap

Koolgator's cooling neck wrap is great for all summer activities. "Great product and helped during this summer's hot and humid days," one reviewer wrote. "Easy to soak in cold water and after 10 or 15 minutes in the refrigerator, the Koolgator kept cool for a couple of hours."

Joyaria Womens Ultra Soft Pajama Set

Made from a bamboo-based material, this ultra-soft pajama set will feel soft and smooth on your skin and keep you cool at night, according to the brand. The pajamas are adjustable at the waist and come in 23 colors and patterns including Black Leopard and Dusty Rose.

Caudalie Grape Water Face Mist

Caudalie's face mist promises to moisturize, soothe and tone your skin while refreshing you with the delicate scent of grape. The brand recommends leaving the mist in the refrigerator to make the experience even more enjoyable.

Artpuch Sun Shade Sail Canopy

Available in 11 colors, Artpuch's sun canopy is made of material that blocks up to 95 percent of UV rays, according to the brand. However, the canopy's breathable material is made to allow breeze and sunlight to flow through, for natural light exposure. It's important to note that the canopy is not waterproof, so we suggest taking it down when you see rain in the forecast!

GearTOP Wide Brim Bucket Hat

Whether you're gearing up for a long hike, an afternoon on the boat or a day spent tending to your garden, sun protection is key. With built-in breathable mesh, this bucket hat promises to keep your head cool and protected even on the warmest of days. "It is very light weight and extremely comfortable in addition to providing the sun protection I need," one reviewer said.

Dreo Cruiser Tower Fan

No central air? No problem. This tower fan is made to fit in even the smallest of apartments and offers three modes of air, to provide comfort even when you're sleeping. Reviewers rave about how this fan is easy to assemble, quiet and "sleek."

Sun Bum Cool Down Aloe Vera Lotion

If the damage is already done and you're seeing the effects of a nasty sunburn, turn to Sun Bum's Aloe Vera Lotion. It includes ingredients that are said to help cool down and soothe the skin. "Putting this on after too much sun will shove much-needed moisture back into your skin, calm the itching/burning and keep your skin from peeling," one reviewer said.

JISULIFE Handheld Mini Fan

With a fan, flashlight and power bank for your phone and other devices, you won't want to be without this portable device on your next warm getaway. The fan can be folded down when you're not using it to fit in the palm of your hand (or in your pocket). "The powerful amount of airflow, how long it holds charge and sturdiness are all great," one reviewer said.

Igloo 90's Retro Lunch Box Cooler

The '90s called — it wants you to keep your lunch cool with this retro take on Igloo's lunch box cooler. Perfect for beach days or toting to the office, this lunch pack is nostalgic, "cute" and "keeps my lunch cool for 5-6 hours," one reviewer wrote.

Bestselling summer items as seen on TODAY

Shop TODAY editorial director Adrianna Brach recently joined TODAY to share the bestselling items everyone was shopping in June to escape the heat. Whether you want a slush and shake maker to perfect your summer smoothie or a portable facial mister to keep you cool on the go, these products are customer-approved and a worthwhile investment.

Zoku Original Slush and Shake Maker

Patience is a virtue that not everyone has. But no patience is needed with the Zoku slush and shake maker that can make a smoothie in seven minutes, according to the brand. After freezing the inner core of the container for eight hours, you just need to add in your desired ingredients and mix. Brach says you can even make milkshakes for your kids with add-ins like sprinkles and cookies.

Potable Nano Facial Mister

Editor's Note: Our original pick is out of stock, but we found a similar option below.

A commute is only made more uncomfortable by the summer heat. This portable facial mister (it's only seven inches tall) is designed to refresh your skin at the same with its cold water mist. Brach recommends filling it with witch hazel, an astringent typically used to treat swelling and irritation, to reduce any inflammation.

Mini Lop Nano Facial Mister

This mini mister can also fit right in your pocket, so you can keep it handy on hot days. Plus, you can charge it via USB, so you don't have to worry about replacing the batteries.

Rita Hazan Two Step Deeply Hydrating and Restorative Weekly Remedy Cream Kit

Editor's Note: Our original pick is out of stock, but we found a similar option below.

When this product was first released, Brach was a beauty editor who saw it change haircare standards: this product helped all hair types. Rather than using conditioner, you can use this two-step remedy cream kit once a week to decrease frizz and increase shine, the brand says.

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Mask

Briogeo's deep conditioning mask is suitable for all hair types and is safe for both color-treated and chemically-treated hair. It's formulated with B-vitamins, algae extract and rosehip oil, which help nourish hair and maintain frizz, according to the brand.

Dangtop Cooling Blanket

The summer heat always seems to seep into your bedroom at night. This lightweight cooling blanket is formulated to combat the heat with effective ventilation created by bamboo fibers. Available in 10 colors, this blanket can be used as a throw or blanket for your bed.

Sumbababy Large Beach Tent

Editor's Note: Our original pick is out of stock, but we found a similar option below.

If you're tired of needing to readjust your umbrella as the sun shifts, a beach tent is the solution for you. After pulling the tent out of the bag and allowing it to pop up, two adults and multiple children can escape from the sun in the tent's UPF 50+ material. Don't worry about the heat rising in the tent as mesh ventilation in the back allows for temperature control.

Wilwolfer Pop-Up Beach Tent

According to the brand, this pop-up tent also provides 50+ UPF UV protection and is windproof up to 25 mph. It can hold up to four people and is easy to assemble and then pack up after a long beach day.

Sukeen 4-Pack Cooling Towel Set

Beat the heat with these mesh-microfiber cooling towels that come in enough colors for the whole family. After soaking the towel with cold water, wring it out and enjoy it cool for up to three hours, the brand says. Brach loves these towels because their travel bag and clips make it easy to attach to your beach bag.
