3 Summer Skincare Essentials

NORDSTROM - Vacation Style Destination

It’s hard to believe we are almost halfway through May! In preparing for the upcoming summer season, it’s so important to have a great skincare routine and dependable makeup staples that won’t smear everywhere when you’re out in the hot sun. The following are 3 essentials from Lancôme that will keep you and your skin feeling great this summer:

•     •     •    •    •    •    •    •    •     •     •

Lancôme Bienfait UV SPF 50+ Oil-free Sunscreen

The first (and hopefully last – oops!) sunburn of the season last month quickly reminded me that it is definitely PAST time to start re-incorporating sunscreen into my daily skin and makeup routines.

I have SUPER sensitive skin though and have had the hardest time finding a facial sunscreen that actually provides protection without causing massive breakouts. Lancôme Bienfait UV SPF 50+ oil-free sunscreen is the first facial sunscreen I’ve been able to use without causing the latter. For the past month, I’ve applied it under my makeup and was so surprised, BUT very pleased, to find that not only did it not interfere with my foundation, but it didn’t irritate my skin either. This past weekend, J and I spent well over 3 hours outside doing yard work, and while he unfortunately got torched, I came inside burn-free. (hehe)

Lancôme Visionnaire Crescendo™

Speaking of sensitive acne-prone skin (my fave), summer heat does me no favors in that department either. Like anyone, I always want bright, healthy skin. However, I have to be careful not to be too harsh with peels that promise “instantly brighter” results. That usually means I’m burning my face off in one round. No good. The Lancôme Visionnaire Crescendo™ peel was a 28-day process. Super easy to apply, and left on overnight, the peel works to gently exfoliate skin surface cells through two different formulas. YES, two! I’m obsessed. I just completed Day 28 two days ago, and y’all my skin is soooo smooth – my makeup literally looks airbrushed. Go Lancôme go!

Lancôme Matte Shaker Lipstick

 The third essential is arguably the most fun because who doesn’t love a good summer lipstick?! After testing the Lancome Matte Shaker Lipstick out, I found that it was not as moisturizing as a non-matte lipstick (for obvious reasons) but it definitely didn’t feel nearly as drying as the Kylie Jenner matte lipsticks did – nor did the formula feel as heavy/thick. I really enjoyed the smoother application, and love the little shaker bottle especially since I felt like I had more control over building the level of color while not wasting as much product.
