Summer is just around the corner and this means humidity isn’t far behind. Summer is always welcome, but humidity is persona non grata! Alas, there is nothing to be done about humidity, so, we have to arm ourselves with the right beauty products to get us through summer looking our best. Though my warm weather makeup routine gets pared down a bit because of the heat, I still need to pull myself together for my day job. Finding the right sunscreen that wears well under my makeup, yet still is able to protect me from the sun, is crucial. Here are three that wear beautifully under makeup as well as provide broad spectrum protection against the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays.


Shiseido Urban Environment SPF 42

shiseido urban environment oil free uv protector spf 42This SPF from Shiseido has been a tried and true favorite of mine for a few years. It is incredibly lightweight, feels great on the skin and dries down to a matte finish! So in addition to getting great sun protection, this formula also acts as a primerunderneath my foundation. The compact packaging design also makes this one of my favorite sunscreens to bring when I travel. Sephora $32


Revive Daily Cellular Protection SPF 30

Revive Daily Cellular Protection

A bit more of a splurge, this Revive Daily Cellular Protection SPF 30 blends both the skincare and sunscreen worlds perfectly together in one product.  The formula helps to target fine lines and wrinkles, continuously nourish and hydrate the skin while also helping to protect the skin from environmental aggressors. It has a rich texture but feels weightless on the skin and I can wear it year ’round. With heavier creams I tend to worry about the excess shine factor, but fear not my oily skinned friends — this does not make skin oily or shiny throughout the day.  Neiman Marcus, $215.

 Murad Invisiblur

Murad InvisiblurThis new launch from Murad initially caught my attention just by the name alone — InvisiBLUR. It sounded like something I wanted to get on my skin asap! The formula has a silicone like feel that instantly mattifies the skin and blurs any imperfections. But unlike some products that have that slippery texture to them, this one does not make my skin feel like it is suffocating underneath. It provides a gorgeous, smooth finish under foundation. We have had a few hot days in NYC already and this has held up spectacularly in the heat and humidity, so I suspect it will be close at hand all summer long.  Sephora, $65

Surprise, Surprise: Most of the things I blog about are submitted to ThisThatBeauty for editorial consideration. In simpler language — I don’t pay for them. Oh yes, that’s pretty much the way it works with most blogs and all magazines. PR professionals pitch products and as the Editor, it’s my role to decide which items get reviewed or included in stories for ThisThatBeauty. And while we cover lots of great product here on my little bloggy woggy, not all of it gets replenished. Some things I use until they’re all used up . . .never to be replenished again. But then there are those star products that I cannot imagine life without. These are the things that I replenish time after time.

I always say, the true sign of product lust/ loyalty is whether or not a beauty editor BUYS the product on her own dime. Here are the items that I happily pay for with my CHASE Visa Debit Card:

Everything Mario Badescu: Just search my blog and you’ll find countless reviews. MB is basically my skin care savior. Whenever my skin goes through seasonal changes or gets out of whack, I can always rely on MB products to rein it in.

GrandeLash MD: Uhm, excuse me, Bambi! This stuff works. I’ve been using it for the past three months and just placed an order for my next three month supply. My lashes are now super duper long and thick. What I love most about this product is that it does not irritate my lash line at all, unlike other growth serums I have tried. I also love that it dries totally clear and I can use it day or night. With other growth serums I’ve tried, they tend to dry with a little white-ish film that doesn’t look so nice for daytime. I saw length after about four weeks…but now that I am three months in, my lashes are not just longer, but also thicker and darker. I’m hooked!

Everything ReVive (except their eye care…meh!): I fell in love with the line about a 18 months ago, and let me tell you — I had the best skin of my life when I was using all ReVive everything. I’ve yet to meet a line of anti-aging products that work as well as ReVive. On a whole, the line is the best there is. Obviously I like products from other lines and constantly test new products….but I always go back to ReVive when I’m in need of an anti-aging fix. FAVS: Defensif Renewal Serum for day and Moisturizing Renewal Cream for night. Trust!

Koh Gen Do Spa Cleansing Water: Hands down, the best cleansing water for removing stubborn mascara and liner. Super effective, yet super gentle.
