New In Our Beauty Closet: Skincare, Haircare, and Suncare We’re Adding To Our Routines

All the new discoveries and worthy must-tries we're using recently—and where to shop them.
Reading Time: 5 minutes

Routines are called routines for a reason: it’s fixed, a staple, something that we do almost mechanically, such as in our morning and evening routines. For routines to work and be effective, consistency is key, and so are application techniques, and, well, maybe with a little bit of a pep talk or a mini-meditation on the side, too.

We’ve likely built our routines around a goal. It can be as specific as building a regimen that’s focused on having clearer, moisturized, but less oily skin on one’s T-zone, for example; or it can be as simple as religiously putting on sunscreen, whether or not we’re going outdoors. Time and again, we introduce a brand new product into our rotation, for plenty of reasons: to spice things up, to target a specific concern, or… just because.

Maybe that’s just what beauty girls do. Below, we’re sharing the new additions to our beauty closet. These are the latest finds we’re incorporating into our evening skincare routines, weekend haircare regimens, and, of course, our collection of suncare essentials.

EVENING SKINCARE

We let you in our low-maintenance routine for lazy nights (yes, we have those, too!). Fewer steps mean more time for beauty rest, yes? The secret is actually in sticking to just the essentials but using super hardworking products that deliver impressive results. Cases in point: Our favorite creams and lotions from Sisley and La Mer, to name a few.

WEEKEND HAIRCARE

On weekends we… take advantage of the time to actually give our manes and tresses extra pampering. Here, we’re trying new essentials from Sephora Philippines, where we’ve discovered some of the most impressive hair and body care brands and products.

First on our list is the Joon Hair Care Sumac Scalp Scrub Exfoliating Shampoo, a minty exfoliating shampoo that we use once a week to clarify our scalp. Next is The Ordinary Behentrimonium Chloride 2% Conditioner, a fragrance-free conditioner that does the job.

We also love the Salt & Stone Santal & Vetiver Body Wash. We can’t even begin to talk about our obsession with this botanical brand, we have most of its products that work wonders, smell fantastic, and look sophisticated. We’re also trying the Kopari Marine Clean Purifying Gel Cleanser. It’s gentle but can wash off makeup.

Post-shower, we use the Saturday Skin Scalp + Hair Strengthening Peptide Treatment on areas with thinning hair; Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother, an ultimate and daily go-to for instant conditioning; and Joon Haircare Saffron Hair Elixir Pistachio + Rose Hair Oil for that extra shine. Plus, of course, our ever-reliable Dyson hairdryer.

SUNCARE

Happy to introduce you to our (current) suncare front liners for what we call a major sun exposure fest—a.k.a. a trip to the beach!

Waterproof, humidity-proof, wipe-proof, sweat-proof, and sand-proof, with protection that gets stronger in such contact, Anessa is, of course, a main component of this beach kit! We use different Anessa products for the face, body, hair, and retouch—as well as for members of our family with different skin concerns.

Don’t sleep on some of our new favorites and discoveries—perfect to amplify protection or add more benefits.

We are obsessed with Kopari’s Body Glow Rosegold Sun Shield! We use it as our final sunscreen retouch after hours under the sun. It delivers a nice, bronzy sheen—the perfect color we want after time at the beach and right before cocktail hour with friends and family. It’s also great to nice to wear on regular days when you want to show some glowy skin.

Supergoop!’s lip sunscreen is clear, moisturizing, and just the perfect add-on for complete sun protection. Korres Aloe After Sun Protection is nice to have post-exposure for extra nourishment, refreshment, and moisture.

And finally, a new F-beauty obsession: Sola Beauty’s tinted sunscreen is perfect if you want coverage that looks like skin. It just does the “tint” job so marvelously that it’s easy to forget it’s actually also a sunscreen with SPF50 PA+++.
