I go for function > form when it comes to my poolside beauty routine. I need sun protection and maybe a *hint* of color on my face, whether it be through a wash of cream blush or a lip stain. More often than not, I’m at the pool with my kids, so I skip any makeup that could run, smear, or smudge.
I’ve stocked up on a few new things from Sephora and thought I’d break down a couple of the summertime essentials here on this post!
I fell in love with the Cay Skin Isle Lip Balm with SPF 30 a few months ago and it has become my holy grail lip SPF. It didn’t take much convincing for me to try the Isle Glow Body Lotion with SPF 45 from Cay Skin, and I’m glad I did because it’s a very nice body lotion! I love that the scent is mild and light too.
I gave the Summer Fridays ShadeDrops Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Mineral Milk Sunscreen a go for my face and was instantly impressed. There was zero greasy residue, and it added a natural-looking sheen to my skin. It has a naturally derived tint that blends in with any skin tone, and it’s Reef-safe for anyone doing at traveling soon that needs a Reef-safe SPF product!
A few other summertime and poolside beauty favorites are the Fenty Beauty Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Stain in Mai Type. A lip stain is kind of the perfect lip product for outdoor activities if you ask me. It’ll look vibrant when it’s applied but slowly fade away leaving a beautiful stain of color on your lips.
I hope they continue to expand the shade range of the collection because they are already getting rave reviews.
We’re officially in summer mode now with the summer solstice behind us, and if you haven’t found an SPF that you love, perhaps you’ll be inspired to try one of these. But promise me that you’ll sign up to be a beauty insider at Sephora before you shop, okay? It’s completely free, you earn points, get clued in on upcoming promotions, and more!
