Right now, it’s hard for me to imagine doing all of the fun things that incapsulate an iconic summer without shedding a thug tear. Cabin fever has made itself at home and for those of us actually following orders and living that WFH life, online shopping has become actual therapy (whether we’re trying to save or not). For that reason, all of the new Sephora products hitting digital shelves this month are a reminder that good times are on the horizon and I might as well get prepared for it.
As expected, now is an ideal time to clean out the shelves hiding behind your bathroom mirror and re-up on your summer essentials. For me, that includes a light moisturizer, plenty of sunscreen and something glowy to throw on top of my BB cream. There is plenty of that and more in the latest wave of newness. Keep scrolling for a closer look at some of my favorite launches because, well, beauty products make me happy and I know at least some of you feel the same.
Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Moisturizer
Everyone’s favorite farm-to-skincare brand is kicking off spring with a featherweight gel moisturizer inspired by its best-selling Green Clean cleansing balm.
