Today’s post features some of my recent discoveries that I’ve been loving lately! These are all new products that are perfect for warmer weather and have secured a spot in my summer beauty routine. Here’s why I love each one…
This new lip color from Hard Candy has the texture of a creamy lip gloss (without any stickiness) and the color payoff of a lipstick. I really like the hydrating formula that keeps my dry lips feeling soft and moisturized. It also delivers in the pigmentation department but isn’t very long-lasting…the average wear time is only about 2-3 hours.
Hard Candy Cashmere Silk Demi Matte Creme Lip Color has more of a satin finish than matte but I like it anyways! This is a great product at a great price…only $5! And it comes in 7 creamy neutral shades, from nudes to perfect pink. The shade I have (shown above) is called Tartufo.
Besides the pretty packaging, there’s a lot to love about this new rose face oil by Milani! Along with rosehip oil, it contains an indulgent blend of sunflower, apricot, sweet almond, and jojoba oils, plus vitamin C.

This rose-scented face oil is elegantly lightweight and absorbs quickly without leaving my skin greasy or shiny. And a little goes a long way to give my skin an extra boost of moisture! I love how it hydrates so well while being so light and wears nicely under makeup too (but if I want my makeup to stay put for a long day, I make sure to prep my skin with a smoothing primer.)
This is a new hydrating lip treatment that’s perfect to wear on its own or under any lip color to lock in moisture. Once applied, the color transforms from a soft pink to a beautiful bright pink. I like to keep this one in my purse for an instant dose of moisture plus color!
Another IT cosmetics product I have also been loving is their new Bye Bye Pores Airbrush Bronzer. It gives me such a beautiful bronze glow with a silky-satin finish, without any shimmer. I love how it glides on so smoothly and doesn’t settle into my pores.
Not to mention, the formula is infused with real silk, hyaluronic acid, coconut extract and vitamins A, C, and E. And its beachy coconut scent is oh-so-good!
This new moisturizer by Yuni is such a soothing treat for tired skin! It has a lightweight texture that just melts into skin and provides long-lasting hydration, thanks to the nourishing natural oils in the formula.
It also contains active Edelweiss plant stem cells and turmeric root extract that provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. And true to its name, it has a calming natural aroma from essential oils that I really enjoy!
If you are a fan of zinc oxide based sunscreens, you know it’s not easy to find a good one that isn’t greasy, chalky and doesn’t leave a telltale white cast. But this new SPF by Peter Thomas Roth is nothing short of awesome!
The all-mineral lotion with 19% zinc oxide (for broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection) feels so light and comfortable on my skin. It provides just the right amount of hydration without being heavy/greasy and absorbs super quickly leaving my skin with a healthy glow (not oily or shiny).
And since the formula is tinted, it leaves absolutely no white cast and layers well under makeup. It evens out my skin tone beautifully and blurs minor imperfections, which is perfect for makeup-free days! Not to mention, this tinted sunscreen also contains antioxidants vitamin A, C, and E that protect skin against free radicals. Powerful sun protection with perks…yes please!
