Multi-Tasking Summer Products That Aren’t As Lazy As You

Let the cheek stain do the work, so you don’t have to.

By: Noah Lehava

Lazing on the beach; lazing on the dock; lazing on the patio; lazing on a Friday...in the summer, we’re all about being lazy, and that sentiment applies to our beauty routines. As in: wet hair, don’t care. And, thanks to an SPF-proofed skin glow, and if we’re especially fortunate, salty hair, we’ve had every excuse to pare back our entire beauty arsenal. In their places? Welcome these double-duty products into your rotation so that they'll make more time for, well, everything else.

 

Wander Beauty Blush and Illuminator

When you’ve have too many glasses of pinot grigio at your post-work city park picnic, and it’s only Tuesday—we don’t blame you, you only have a few months of this—the next morning your complexion may need a little, uh, glow. Throw this in your bag and run out the door (you’re going to need every last extra Z) and swipe on the blush end for some unnatural-natural flush. The other end’s highlighter will hide any semblance of last night’s over-indulgence.

 

Living Proof 5-in-1 Styling Treatment

Using a blow dryer in an AC-less apartment sounds like absolute effing torture. So we’re game to harness the powers of the sun to do all the evaporating for our hair. Just run this 5-in-1 (if that doesn’t scream “LAZY” we don’t know what will) through it first to give a little jeuje and polish to your natural texture.

 

Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Face Mist

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but we’re borderline obsessed with having dewy skin, always. A few mists of this all over your face (and body!) is the closest thing to smelling like you’ve been sitting beachside with an hibiscus flower perched behind your ear, and fresh plucked coconut in hand all day. Plus, it’s refreshing and can also double as a really fun body spray.

 

 Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect

Another product we can’t get enough of is primer—we could never give it up, no matter the season. And one that doubles as a sunscreen checks off multiple beauty boxes.

“Getting Real”

We’re taking an honest look at love, life, and all the things that come with being an adult.
