It feels like your new favorite lightweight hydrator, but the do-it-all formula is so much more: One pump acts as a toner, essence and moisturizer while eucalyptus, apple mint and rosehip sop up grease before it surfaces.
Merging the makeup-melting power of micelles and the nourishing properties of milk, this comforting liquid is gentle enough to use all over your face and eyes, but powerful enough to not leave a trace of makeup behind.
PCA Skin Hydrating Toner ($40)
It’s gentle and free of fragrance, yet powerfully potent: Packed with antioxidants and summer-forward fruit acids like watermelon and apple, one swipe a day brightens and, over time, adds some natural dew to a dried-out complexion.
Boasting the very enzymes formulated to tackle the proteins that hold dead skin cells together, this vitamin C–infused, powder-to-foam cleanser is part peel, part brightener and totally worth the price tag.
The ultimate beach bag staple, this rose-scented, ultralight mist delivers the perfect dose of moisture and dew to summer skin, then keeps hydrating for 48 hours after you spritz. Even better, it promises to improve skin firmness after four weeks when used twice daily.
Hydropeptide Nimni Day Cream ($110)
Anti-aging day creams don’t have to be heavy. Case in point: the daytime version of Hydropeptide’s coveted Nimni Cream, which optimizes new collagen production deep in the skin as it tightens, brightens and protects the complexion we see from everyday environmental abuse.
If you’re after a featherlight vitamin C product, look no further than this potent bi-phase serum (be sure to shake before using). The top half is a cocktail of vitamin C and wild rose oil, making it super nourishing; the bottom is a natural brightening complex for maximum results without any harmful ingredients.
Stash these cheeky, refreshing wipes away in your pool bag to perk up tired, sun-kissed skin with a blend of biotin, folic acid and vitamin B5.
Nothing puts a damper on summer confidence like a breakout peeking through your favorite sundress. This ultra-fine scrub packs a punch with one-percent salicylic and glycolic acid, and can be used on the face and body for clear skin from head to toe.
Pretty much the closest thing to a splash of water on your face, this ultra-hydrating gel moisturizer is infused with Queen of the Night Cactus—known for its superior water-retention capability—along with jojoba leaf and willowherb to safeguard skin as it nourishes.
A new version of the brand's coveted Resurfacing Mask, this cocktail of AHA and BHA acids go a long way in the fight against dullness, breakouts and environmental damage, and is so much easier to use daily.
Whether it's used as a primer, highlighter or radiance booster to your go-to moisturizers, one pump of this lightweight formula—it's the brand's first-ever highlighter—delivers a glow you thought only 10 sheet masks could accomplish, no makeup required.
Saturate a cotton pad with this lightweight fluid then run it across your skin as plant stem cells, goji extract, AHAs and lactic acid refine pores, brighten a lackluster complexion and set the stage for a better absorption of skin care products.
