Face Time: New products stand up to summer


If your skin is already oil-prone, summer can be a tough time to maintain a fresh face. But some new products on the market are worth a shot.

Ren Clarifying Toning Lotion ($28, renskincare.com). More like a liquid, this combination to oily skin toner is a gentle but effective blend of glycolic, lactic citric, tartaric acids sourced from pineapple, passion fruit, lemon and grape. Salicillin sourced from willow bark works to reduce pore size and oiliness.

Philosophy Here Comes the Sun water-resistant SPF 40 UVA/UVB sunscreen ($30, beautybrands.com for area Beauty Brands locations). This nongreasy lotion boasts a high SPF factor plus age-defying antioxidants. Best of all, it’s oil-free.

Glo Minerals Under Eye Primer ($24, Friday in salons and spas or gloprofessional.com). Even though summer seems like it should be all about relaxation, most of us are running around more than ever. This primer is intended to brighten and smoothe the delicate skin under the eyes with antioxidants, peptides and light-reflective particles. Bonus: It can be used on the eyelids to help makeup stay all day.

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm SPF 20 ($32, Beauty Brands). Don’t let heavy, full-coverage makeup weigh you down when one tube can do the trick. This chemical-free SPF lotion comes in four shades and uses light-diffusing pigments. It moisturizes with oil-free hydration and is hypo-allergenic.

Stila Smudge Crayon Waterproof Eye Color ($22, Beauty Brands). The gel-based primer, shadow and liner glides on and promises to not fade or crease. Look for it in eight hues.
