With Summer rolling around and the continuance of the dewy skin trend, I wanted to pick up a few no-hassle skin and makeup products that would leave me glowing without all the upkeep. These three products were by FAR the best that I tried this month (and just the best in general!)
Product 1: Peach and Lily Good Skin Day Mask (macys.com, $6)
GUYS. THIS. MASK. Peach and Lily is one of the most popular Korean skincare brands for a REALLY good reason. This mask is ULTRA hydrating without all the stickiness I’ve found in a lot of sheet masks. Even for someone with oily skin (*cough* me *cough*) the lightweight texture of the serum sinks into your skin beautifully and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy after application. BONUS: it contains no synthetics fragrances or artificial dyes, and its paraben and sulfate free! I leave my sheet masks on longer than the recommended time (which is 15-25 minutes) and my skin is baby soft and hydrated to the max every time I use this product. Plus how cute is the packaging? Sheet mask goals.
TIP: Put it in the fridge for a half hour before use for an awesome cooling effect!
Product 2: Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic (Target.com, $15)
This toner is absolutely incredible for healthy, glowing skin. With 5% glycolic acid as its active ingredient, it gently exfoliates any dead skin on your face while working to erase fine lines! While it definitely gets the exfoliating job done, it’s also very gentle on the skin, not stinging or burning during application. After using this for three weeks, my complexion went from dull and sallow to glowing and vibrant! Score!
TIP: Using a cotton pad rather than a cotton ball will make your product last longer!
Product 3: Haloscope Highlighter (Glossier.com, $22)
This is the no-makeup makeup item of the season for me. With its moisturizing core and outer ring of delicately shimmery pigment, it makes your face look glowing and dewy without the sparkles or glitter! Perfect for days when you need a little extra pick-me-up but don’t want to wear a lot of face makeup (summer sweat, am I right?) this highlighter applies like a dream and can make you look like a vibrant mermaid-princess in five seconds flat.

TIP: Use your ring finger to apply to fully blend the core and outer ring of pigment and avoid looking streaky!
I am going to be using these three products all summer long! Let me know in the comments down below if you’ve tried any of these products or if you have another ride-or-die summer glow essential!
