As I'm writing this story, my AC is blasting, I have an ice roller on my desk, and my iced coffee is sweating profusely — all signs that summer is basically here. Another sign the season is upon us (other than the sweltering heat)? Amazon's Movers & Shakers charts, which take in account the items most added to shoppers' charts in the last 24 hours, are full of summer essentials. Sales are skyrocketing for things like lightweight tinted moisturizers, flowy running shorts, aloe vera gel, and breezy dresses.

Here are the 10 summer products Amazon shoppers are stocking up on right now:

I love a good tinted moisturizer, especially during the summer when I don't want to be wearing heavy foundation. Amazon shoppers seem to especially be loving Wet n Wild's Barely There Tinted Skin Hydrator, which is on sale for just $5 right now. Made with hyaluronic acid and squalane, the skin tint has a semi-matte finish that's hydrating and "doesn't look cakey." It comes in nine shades and has over 4,400 five-star ratings.

One customer raved that the universal tint "balances and refines your skin tone, and it is convenient when you don't put any makeup [on]," and said that they can "totally go out" wearing "only this sunscreen."

What's summer without Sol de Janeiro's popular Bum Bum Cream? The body moisturizer is a personal favorite of mine, especially during the summer. Made with nourishing ingredients like cupuacu butter, acai oil, coconut oil, and caffeine-packed guarana, it helps moisturize, smooth, and firm your skin. It has a delicious warm vanilla scent, and it leaves behind a subtle shimmer.

Heat and sweat can cause face and body breakouts, even if you're not usually acne-prone. It's no surprise that several beauty products containing benzoyl peroxide, a pimple-fighting ingredient, are popping up on Amazon's charts. The CeraVe Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser is particularly loved because it's gentle while being effective — benzoyl peroxide is known for drying out the skin, but shoppers say this CeraVe option leaves them "hydrated" and "glowy."

This breezy mini dress has puffed sleeves, a smocked waist, can be worn off-the-shoulder, and has a cheeky tie-back — what's not to like? The Exlura dress comes in 14 colors like white, baby blue, and pink, and goes up to size 2XL. Shoppers say it's a "great dress" for weddings and vacations, and that they receive "many compliments" when they wear it.

Aloe vera gel is a must during the summer. Other than healing sun damaged skin, it can also be used to soothe acne and moisturize the skin — it even has hair benefits.

"I will forever keep this as a staple in my medicine cabinet," they wrote.
