Two in one

Why choose between moisturizing your skin and protecting it from the scorching sun when you can do both? Lightweight and oil-free, Fenty Skin’s Hydra Vizor SPF 30 Sunscreen Moisturizer boosts skin with air-light, all-day hydration that meets universal SPF 30 protection.

Formulated with Kalahari Melon and Niacinamide, this refillable moisturizing sunscreen effectively tackles stubborn discoloration and dark spots. The fresh scent of desert melon also makes the application all the more addictive.

The rose-tinted cream has a plush texture that glides on smoothly to skin without buildup. It also plays well with makeup, absorbing instantly to smooth and soften skin.

The best part? There’s no flashback either, so you don’t have to worry about your face looking cakey in Raya’s photos.

Soft lips

Taking care of our lips is just as important as taking care of our skin, especially since it’s one of the first places dehydration shows up. Keep your lips nourished and plump with Laneige’s Hello Blossom Lip Sleeping Mask.

The Lip Sleeping Mask is formulated with a gentle, dermatologically validated solution to prevent irritation. It also has an added floral scent that reminds you of spring cherry blossoms.
