Don’t be fooled by a few rainy days; the sunny days of fall are still very much abound. Most days our skin is glistening, albeit slightly more oily than usual (maybe it’s sweat, maybe it’s not), but we’re enjoying a nice big dose of Vitamin D and our sunkissed skin is feeling happy. We, like most of your Instagram and TikTok feeds have been enjoying a bout of European summer, packing a few new skincare products to test drive in different climates. We’ve rounded up some of the best skincare newness that have been keeping us glowy, gorgeous and protected, no matter what the season throws at us.
We love a body oil at any time of the year, but especially in late summer, when our skin craves extra hydration all over. Whether you’re in and out of the water on the beach, at the lake, or just taking your third shower of the day in the city, the new Caudalie Oil Elixir has you covered head to toe. It’s completely fragrance free and include hero ingredients like Prickly Pear, Grape Seed & Argan oils.
Another Westman Atelier product to covet has arrived and we’re obsessed. The Liquid Super Loaded all-over illuminator drops deliver a quick and easy hit of nourishment to the skin included a much needed dose of vitamin C. Formulated with multidimensional pearls that reflect the light for a much needed glow that lets your natural skin shine through. As always this Westman Atelier product is formulated without silicones, parabens, PEGs, talc, or phthalates, so you can breathe easy adding this one to your routine.
We’re really excited ILIA has dropped yet another clean skincare product to covet! This foaming facial cleanser feels light as air on the skin but works hard to remove makeup, mineral SPFs and pollutants without stripping the skin of its natural oils and maintains a healthy pH balance while delivering a nice dose of hydration to the skin. It’s the perfect addition to your summer routine when you’re probably washing your face a little more than usual.
We love cocokind’s all natural skincare so we were delighted to test out their all-new Chlorophyll Discoloration Serum which works hard on dark spots and US damage, something I think we could all use a little help with at this point. Formulated with Alpha Arbutin, a naturally occurring antioxidant that helps to brighten the skin and reduce discolouration as well as Chlorophyll to boost radience and calm any redness. As always it’s fragrance-free, non-irritating and will no doubt score an EWG verification once added to the Skin Deep Database.
We’ve been obsessed with Hailey Bieber’s natural skincare brand since day one so we were delighted to hear they had launched a new Glazing Milk, to round out the line up. Perfect for cleansing morning and night, the Rhode Glazing Milk works with a ceramides, beta-glucan, and a mineral blend of magnesium, copper, and zinc to protect from free radicals and boost the skin’s healthy glow while soothing red and irritated skin. You can even use it all over the body for a layer of glistening hydration.
