Ilia Beauty: Warm Weather Essentials

Warm weather essentials from Ilia Beauty on

Is it me, or has this week been… long?  This heat!  But, I won’t complain.  Summer is my favorite time of year; I love the beach, I love summer fashion and I love warm weather products. I am getting ready to head to Kiawah Island for the holiday weekend, and I’ve been trying to round up all of my favorite summertime lotions and potions – to wear, to shoot, to give to family and friends (definitely one of the perks of being a beauty blogger).  Ilia Beauty has launched some new products that are perfect for the beach, or anywhere that’s hot and sunny.

Ilia Moondance Radiant Translucent Powder SPF 20 has been on constant rotation in my routine this summer.  This mineral-based finishing powder is perfect for touchups while on the go, and totally zaps shine.  The spill-proof applicator has an open, close and buff option that is perfect for touching up while out in the sun.  (I don’t rely on this as my only SPF, but I like to use this to touch up my shine and add a little extra sun protection while on the beach or boat.)

Ilia’s Cucumber Water Stick will become your TSA-Approved best friend if you are traveling a lot this summer.  Glide it over temples and around eye area, over cheekbones and forehead, then gently press into skin. It’s a toner packaged in a solid formula that refreshes, helps to de-puff and provides a cooling flash of hydration to the skin—and it feels amazing.  Throughout the day, dot under the eyes and around the temples to refresh and revitalize your skin. It’s a must-have beach accessory, stick it in the fridge – or cooler!

Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 in Darlin’ is the perfect trifecta of lip balm, lipstick, and sun protection with a peachy, universally flattering hue.  It is honestly my new favorite color, even for nighttime.  (Kamikaze is also really pretty; it’s a bold, cool fuchsia.)  Ingredients such as Cocoa and Shea butter hydrate lips, zinc oxide provides natural SPF, and the buildable colors are universally flattering.  I posted about these last night on my Instagram feed, if you want to see what they look like on.  If you’re in the sun, remember to reapply often, and don’t forget to…..
