Whether you’re looking to refresh your skincare lineup or lighten up your makeup routine, we’ve got you covered. Ahead, the seven best new beauty launches to kickstart your summer.
Got bumpy upper arms or a stubborn case of strawberry legs? You may want to rethink your moisturizer. This lightweight body serum uses a combo of 10 percent lactic acid and 2 percent salicylic acid to exfoliate the outer layers of your skin, while honey and shea butter tackle any dryness. Silky smooth limbs await you, friend.
If you love sheet masks but are trying to cut down on the amount of single-use products in your beauty routine, this reusable option from Jenny Patinkin offers the best of both worlds. Made from organic bamboo, you can easily pair it with your go-to essences or serums and then simply toss it in the washer afterwards. It also comes with a matching headband for the full home spa experience.
Celebrity manicurist Brittney Boyce does it again with her latest collection of press on nails. All three designs in the lineup feature a nude base and subtle pops of brights (which is the biggest nail art trend this summer). Each kit includes everything you need to get an express mani at home including 24 nails, a file and buffer duo for shaping, a cuticle stick and both adhesive tabs and nail glue that you can alternate between pending how long you want to wear them.
When it comes to summer makeup, we want everything to be as easy and breezy as possible. This super pigmented eyeshadow stick delivers a statement eye in one quick swipe and doesn’t budge in the heat. You can choose from eight shades in shimmery or matte finishes but we’re partial to “Creature,” which is the prettiest sky-blue hue.
Fans of dermaplaning will love this compact device that swiftly removes peach fuzz and dead skin cells with precision. Featuring a miniature blade on one end that’s easy to maneuver in hard-to-reach places (like between your brows and the corners of your lips), it’s a great touchup tool to have when you don’t feel like shaving your entire face. Bonus: There’s a stainless-steel rollerball on the other end of the tool for depuffing undereye bags.
If your skin is looking a little dull lately reach for this exfoliating mask. Packed with BHA and PHA to clear up congested pores and a sprinkling of micronized blueberry seed powder to gently whisk away dead cells, it leaves your face looking brighter without any irritation. We also love the whipped clay texture, which applies like a dream and washes off easily.
Sunscreen had a major glow up in 2021, y’all. Whereas our options used to be limited to a select few chalky formulas that smelled overly of fake coconuts, we now have options like this one that feel like a second skin. Seriously, the lightweight lotion sheers out as you rub it in and leaves no trace behind, so you can apply (and reapply) without hesitation. The sunny blue-and-yellow packaging is easy on the eyes, too.
