I’m excited that the weather is finally starting to feel more like summer. That means it’s time to change up some of my skincare products with new summer skincare essentials.
If you have been following me on social media or on the blog, you will know that I like to travel and usually to warm destinations. Soaking up the sun is my favourite pastime but let’s face it, it’s not the smartest thing to do without sunscreen. I am being smarter about my summer skincare needs by adding products that will protect my skin from the harmful sunshine rays. How about that sun kissed glow without the sun? Shoppers Drug Mart has all of my skincare needs covered. Here are some of my summer skincare must haves:
SUMMER SKINCARE SUN PROTECTION:
Clinique Mineral Sunscreen Lotion for Face SPF 50 ($34.00) and Body SPF 30 ($41.00): These are EXCLUSIVELY AT SHOPPERS DRUG MART – The Clinique Mineral Sunscreen Lotion offers lightweight and invisible protection that blends effortlessly into the skin. It offers sun protection and also protects against environmental aggressors. I love that it is non-acnegenic as a lot of other sunscreens make me breakout.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Mineral Ultra Fluid Lotion SPF 60 Face Sensitive Skin ($29.00) – This is an innovative, fast-absorbing, fluid lotion that offers a matte finish that makes an excellent make-up base. I absolutely love that it is fragrance free and paraben free. It is a weightless texture that leaves skin feeling clean and matte. It has a patented Mexoryl® sunscreen technology as well as other sunscreen filters. Not only is it water resistant but it also offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
Shiseido WetForce BB SPF 50+ for Face ($48.00) – I love that this sunscreen doubles as a BB tinted sunscreen. A super lightweight formula with natural coverage that is long lasting and transfer resistant. It is perfect for days you don’t want to wear heavy makeup but want flawless looking skin. With WetForce Technology, this sunscreen’s UV protection veil becomes more effective when the applied area is exposed to water or perspiration for 30 minutes. Exclusive SuperVeil-UV 360 technology helps to provide an even, protective layer over the skin. Shiseido WetForce has been recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation for active use. If you are worried about breaking out, this product is non-comedogenic and will not lead to breakouts from clogged pores.
Perfect Primer – Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance Foundation Primer 30ml ($50.00) – This is a moisturizing primer cream that gives your skin that-satin-smooth finish and an instant warm glow. It perfects and enhances radiance while hydrating for better makeup application. Imperfections are blurred and the micro-fine amber and bronze pearls create a warm glow.
Kissable Lips – Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil 7ml ($25.00) – I am in love with these lip oils. They offer the high shine benefits of a gloss with the soothing comfort of an oil. The best part is that it is a pure plant oil formula with a blend of mirabelle plum, jojoba and hazelnut oils. The lip oil instantly soothes and nourishes the lips while forming a protective layer of transparent colour to help lock in moisture. It has a lightweight texture and it wonderful alone for naturally soft lips or over a lipstick for that glossy effect.
Sunkissed Skin – St Tropez One Night Only Wash Off Face & Body Lotion ($20.00) and St. Tropez Prep & Maintain Tan Applicator Mitt ($9.00) – This is the best product for an instant tan with no commitment. It is a streak-free face and body bronzer that delivers a natural looking tan. It lasts for up to 24 hours without transferring on your clothes. With the Rainmac™ Technology the lotion washes off easily. Exfoliate your skin 24 hours prior to use and moisturize any dry areas such as elbows, knees, ankles and feet immediately prior to application. Apply using the Tan Applicator Mitt for a streak-free application. Wait until it’s touch dry before getting dressed.
All of these products are available at Shoppers Drug Mart and beautyboutique.ca.

I was in Shoppers recently looking at their sunscreen section and wondered what that Clinique one was like. I use their CityBlock sunscreen and love it but I like that their new one is mineral.
I've heard so many rave about those Clarins Lip Oils - need to give those a try stat!
