Summer skin: Two new Tula products to try for summer

Two of my must-have summer skincare products? Definitely a good facial spray and sunscreen!

I have talked about Tula’s Protect + Glow Daily Sunscreen a lot on here and it truly is one of my favourite sunscreens since it’s so lightweight, doesn’t feel like sunscreen (or smell like it). It also helps nourish your skin and provide you with bluelight protection. I love it so much that when I got a package from Tula in the mail last week and it contained a brand new sunscreen, I was hesitant to even try it.

But let me tell you, I’m glad I did.

Tula Mineral Magic Mineral Sunscreen Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 30

The Tula Mineral Magic Mineral Sunscreen Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($38 USD) is brand new and is a different texture than my beloved Protect + Glow.  This sunscreen is a weightless mineral sunscreen that gives you amazing sun coverage without a greasy feel.  This is the key part in this product and to be honest, the biggest difference I have found.  The Protect + Glow is a gel consistency, so therefore it can have a more greasy feel, whereas this one dries down into the skin more like a traditional facial sunscreen would.

Like its predecessor (which is also still available), the Mineral Magic also protects you against blue light damage and pollution, and helps to brighten and even out skin tone.  This one also helps with oil throughout the day.

The formula contains the Tula’s Complex, which is a Super6 blend of prebiotics and probiotic extracts that help to improve skin smoothness and maintain skin balance. It also contains peach to brighten and even out skin tone; red algae to provide oil control and antioxidant protection; and wild butterfly ginger to help protect your skin against the damaging effects of bluelight and pollution.

So which Tula sunscreen is the right one for you? Honestly, this is a toughie since I love the Protect + Glow so much.  I have been really enjoying this one as well and appreciate the fact that it’s a mineral formula and won’t give your skin a shiny look to it.  If you have oily skin, you might not like their original sunscreen since it does give you a glowing finish, and that’s where this one would come in handy since it’s more of a matte finish.

Tula Antioxidant Water Purifying Toner Face Mist

Also new to Tula is another spray, the Antioxidant Water Purifying Toner Face Mist ($36 USD).  This mist is a toner that hydrates and purifies skin while protecting it against bluelight protection and feeding antioxidants to your skin.

Tula also has another spray as well but this one acts more like a toner (but is really a jack of all trades).  Spray this on to purify and tone skin, soothe and hydrate, provide protection against pollution and bluelight, and feed antioxidants in your skin.

It contains the brand’s Tula Complex; witch hazel and wild mint leaf to purify and tone skin; hyaluronic acid to hydrate; green tea and wild butterfly ginger to protect skin against aggressors; and cucumber water and holy basil to soothe and calm the look of irritation.

So what’s the difference between this one and the Signature Glow Spray?  Well the Signature Glow is designed to help with brightening dull-looking skin, as well as hydrating it.  It contains a lot of the same ingredients as the new one, but Antioxidant Water is a jack of all trades.  You can use it as a toner, as a refresher, or just whenever you want a little pep in your day.  Both are good, but if you don’t use a toner already, then this would be a great option since you just spray it on.  I also want to add that the bottle itself on this is awesome as the product just mists lightly on your face. It’s very refreshing!

Tula Antioxidant Water Purifying Toner Face Mist and  Mineral Magic Mineral Sunscreen Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Both of these items are ones that Tula already have in their collection but I find they do help with providing options for more specialized skincare needs.  As always, if you want to give these a try (or any Tula product), use code SHAYNA for 15% off your order (brings the sunscreen down to $32.30 and the spray to $30.60).

Have you tried any of Tula’s sunscreens or sprays?

Neutrals and nudes: Covergirl Outlast Moisturizing Lip Color with Topcoat New Neutrals collection

The real makeup MVP of the pandemic? Liquid lipsticks.

I was obsessed with these since before we had to wear masks, but with all the mouth covering going on, if you are bothering to even wear a lipstick, then a liquid one is the best way to go.

Now since so many brands have their own formulas it can be kinda tough to pick out the right one for you. I’ve tried a lot of them out there and when it comes to drugstore, Covergirl has a great one.

Covergirl Outlast Moisturizing Lip Color with Topcoat 

The Outlast Moisturizing Lip Color with Topcoat (C$9.97) is a long-lasting lip colour that is a two-step system. There is the colour itself, which dries down to a matte texture, and then there is the moisturizing balm, which locks in colour and adds shine and moisture.

These have been out for a while now but Covergirl actually just released a collection of nudes to choose from that I’m all for. The New Neutrals collection is comprised of seven nude shades from light to dark that are sure to be flattering on just about any skin tone. I received two of them which are right up my alley, Porcelain (peach nude with shimmer) and Dusty Blush (a rose nude), and both are so great for summer (especially with a little tan).

The lip colour part is applied via a doe-foot applicator, letting you control where you are applying the product. For this collection I would say it’s a buildable coverage, which I like since I prefer a lighter nude as opposed to a darker one.  These do dry down matte and truthfully can be a little dry on the lips in general, so that’s why it’s handy to keep the moisturizing balm handy for some quick bursts of hydration.

As for longevity, these really do last a long time once applied. I do find that the balm can minimize the wear time a little bit, but overall you’ll get a lot of hours after just one application (even after eating and drinking).

When I compare these to other liquid lipsticks out there, especially the Maybelline ones, I would recommend these. I love the Maybelline formula as well, but I do find those especially hard to remove at the end of the day and I love how these Covergirl ones come with the balm (which is also an amazing lip hydrator in general).

Open eyes: Fenty Beauty Bright Fix Brightener Concealer

One beauty brand that I need to try every time they release new products? Fenty Beauty.

I love basically everything that they have released, including their face products.  I love the Pro Filt’r Foundation and Concealer, so when I saw they came out with a new concealer, you better believe I needed to try it out.

The Fenty Beauty Bright Fix Eye Brightener Concealer (C$33) is an undereye brightener that hydrates, conceals, and brightens the under eye area. I do find this one to be on the sheer side but it has a buildable coverage that is on the natural side.

Fenty Beauty Bright Fix Eye Brightener Concealer

Unlike their Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer, this one comes in a squeeze tube and a little goes a long way. The formula is on the lighter side and has a serum-like texture that brightens and blurs.  The formula is very hydrating thanks to the added jojoba oil to condition the under eyes.  It also contains a HydraBlend complex to retain moisture in the skin.

Fenty sent me three shades to try out.  In this range there are 16 shades to choose from, which is considerably less than the Instant Retouch formula.  I do like this concealer since it’s on the lighter side. I also don’t have any issues with my under eyes and dark circles or discolouration, so it works nicely for me.  I do want to add though that I find a sponge works better for working the product into the skin, as with a brush I find it just spreads and looks streaky.

I would actually like to pair it with their Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint for a lightweight summer look since both products are on the sheer side, but also at the same time buildable (just make sure to add some SPF).

If you are looking for a nice lightweight, hydrating foundation then I would give this a try. I think for the hot summer months this will be a nice product to sport for everyday wear or a day where you want something on the lighter side.
