Like everyone else watching this year’s Emmy Awards, I thought actress, musician and mom-to-be Suki Waterhouse looked absolutely radiant in red. And while the often-cited “pregnancy glow” can’t be dismissed from the chat, Waterhouse’s glowing complexion was enhanced by Naked Sundays’ new CabanaGlow SPF 50 Mineral Glow Serum Drops—a skin care-makeup hybrid that has cut at least four steps from my beauty routine.
The multi-use drops act as primer, highlighter, bronzer, SPF and glowy skin tint. Thanks to a unique formula of skin-hydrating and antioxidant-boosting ingredients, it also holds up as an effective skin-care serum. All three shades, Bronze, Illuminating, and Pearl, include pink algae, hyaluronic acid, rosella extract and mineral SPF 50 to help protect, hydrate and firm skin, reduce redness, minimize fine lines and promote elasticity.
My winter complexion couldn’t be further from Waterhouse’s golden-goddess look, but these highlighting serum drops are all you need for a healthy glow year-round. Per the brand, each shade contains identical SPF mineral filters so shades can be worn alone or combined. Pearl brightens skin and evens out tone. On its own, Illuminating leaves a light glow, but mixed with Bronze gives a deeper golden effect. Reach for Bronze when you want to top off any look with a sun-kissed finish.
Naked Sundays CabanaGlow SPF 50 Mineral Glow Serum Drops: A Review
After cleansing and moisturizing as usual, I put my normal serums, SPF, primer, highlighter and bronzer to the side to see if these viral drops have earned their hype. I started by applying Pearl wherever I saw an extra bit of redness (namely, around my nose and chin), before going in with Illuminating on my face and neck for an even sheen. I blended in Bronze at the top of the forehead, on my cheekbones, along my jawline and on the bridge of my nose, then finished with a little more Pearl around my eyes and cupid’s brow. Some CHANEL blush, Merit Beauty eyebrow gel and Laneige lip balm and voilà, in five minutes I had “lit from within” skin from less than a handful of beauty products.
