First Love: Foundation
To compare this splurge-worthy standout to regular ol' face makeup would be a crime. Most foundations contain water, along with opaque pigments and fillers, which sit on your skin like a cakey mask. Not our favorite look. However, this incredibly lightweight fluid falls on the other end of the spectrum. It's oil-based with ultra-fine pigments, so it glides on like silk and melts into your complexion like a second skin. A few drops gives you the perfect amount of tone correction and a matte finish without looking like you're actually wearing makeup.
New Crush: Luminizing Foundation
With finely milled pigments and a hydrating oil blend (apricot, passiflora, and rice bran), this illuminating version blends seamlessly into skin and disappears naturally just like its predecessor. However, the finish is fresh and glowy, thanks to reflective particles that give it a subtle shimmer. It's also spiked with summer-friendly SPF 30.
First Love: Body Lotion
Rough, flaky skin doesn't stand a chance when you slather on this hardworking hydrator. Ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin fight dryness and help skin retain moisture throughout the day. Bonus points for the fragrance-free formula that won't aggravate sensitive skin types.
New Crush: Moisturizing Ointment
While you may not need to use this protective salve on the reg, you'll thank your lucky stars on days when you get those red, cracked, or crazy-dry patches. The petrolatum-based formula acts like a band-aid, soothing and protecting stressed-out skin. And because it contains ceramides and hyaluronic acids like its moisturizing-cream cousin, it helps hydrate and repair the skin barrier. Irritated skin, we've totally got you covered.
First Love: Tinted Lip Balm
Some balms have a greasy, smothering texture that only feels appropriate for the dead of winter. Not the case with Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm. The hydrating blend of shea butter, beeswax, and plant oils smoothes and softens our rough, flaky skin without feeling the slightest bit greasy or heavy. Plus, the sheer, natural tint leaves our lips with a fresh wash of color. Wear this year-round staple alone or as a primer under gloss and lipstick. It always works.
