I visited my favorite Bay Area skincare store, Space NK Apothecary, located in Marin Country Mart to discuss the best skincare products for the upcoming summer season.
Space NK Apothecary offers a carefully edited selection of high quality, original and effective beauty products from innovators and specialists around the world.
Natasha, who ended up giving me a mini facial, and I dished on the various brands and ingredients to help combat dehydrated, summer skin.
Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser (made with French green clay, Vitamin C Ester, Black Pepper, Frankincense, Jasmine and Sandalwood Essential Oils which help minimize pores and control oil):
African Botanics Pure Marula Cleansing Oil (contains essential fatty acids that soften and hydrate):
Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence (this product is high in Vitamin C and will help reduce redness and inflamed skin):
Revive Balancing Toner (works to restore your skin to a healthy pH level):
Rodical X-Treme Acid Rush Peel (they can’t keep this on their shelves–it works instantly to minimize your pores):
Chantecaille Detox Clay Mask (unlike other clay masks this mask soothes and softens your skin while removing impurities):
Joanna Vargas Daily Serum (this high-profile facialist created her own line of products rich in antioxidants to protect your skin):
Ren Vita Mineral Omega 3 Serum (this serum is super-absorbing and lightweight):
Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes (formulated to reduce the appearance of dark circles. I loved the consistency of this eye cream as well):
Darphin Wrinkle Corrective Eye Cream (Darphin is one of the most trusted names in skincare):
Natura Bisse The Cure Sheer Cream (the sheer tint matches any skin tone and is known for giving you a luminous complexion):
Tammy Fender Antioxidant Creme (the multi-vitamin in a jar for your face):
Eve Lom Moisturizer (this lightweight formula contains SPF and essential antioxidants):
Tata Harper Revitalizing Body Oil (the salesgirls could not stop raving about this product):
Ren Moroccan Rose Otto Ultra- Moisture Body Oil (apply to damp skin after a shower):
