GAME OF TONES
Load up on SPF and don’t forget to include these skin refiners.
Our summertime visions of sangria and poolside moments are disrupted by smudged makeup, or sunburnt skin—which is never a pretty sight. The trick to making your makeup last all day is solid skin prep to ensure that your face is being protected from the sun and soothed from the heat. Slay the outdoor elements with these essential botanical skincare steps. Effortlessly transition into summer with skin loving ingredients of coco(nut) and rose—decidedly Pantone’s 2016 color of the year—for your beauty wardrobe refresh.
Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Mist
There’s a reason why roses have always been the most sought after scent: consider its place in medieval and early modern iconography and its present day associations with fragrance and beauty. It’s coming up roses—from blush tones to your face mist—and Herbivore Botanicals is the brand that gets it. Offering a fresh interpretation of this prized botanical, the allure of the rose is reimagined into something more modern.
This hydrating facial mist layers rose and hibiscus over a base of coconut water and aloe that’s perfect for refreshing the skin after cleansing or masking. The best part: Herbivore’s Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Mist is all-natural, and crafted with pure, organic ingredients that work flawlessly both under or over makeup. This multi-mister also works as a soothing finishing spray that’s packed with antioxidants and botanical extracts to reduce redness and imbue the skin with moisture.
SPA VIBE: the feeling of reclining onto a bed of roses, captured in a minimalist glass decanter.
BEST FOR: after a long-haul flight, poolside companion, or afternoons in the city.
Coco Rose Lip Conditioner
Our lips are often the most neglected part of our beauty routine, and with longer days and mercury rising, chapped lips can also be a cause for concern in warm weather. Everyone needs lip balm—but a luxe lip conditioner? Now we’re talking. For lazy Sundays, go barefaced with Coco Rose Lip Conditioner for petal soft lips and a peek of natural tint. Or for occasions when you want to make an impression with a bold hue, apply as a hydrating base to prep lips for color.
SPA VIBE: Cold-pressed, organic Virgin Coconut and Moroccan Rose oils—along with Shea Butter and Vitamin E—deliver cushioned, velvety lips on demand. Need we say more?
BEST FOR: touching up after brunch, keeping at your office desk, or a purse staple for date nights.
