Skincare round-up: Top products for summer 2023

I’m from Minnesota where the weather here has ruined my skin. 

Even though I am in my mid-twenties, I am constantly changing out my skin care products to match the four seasons. Instead, I thought what if there is a product that can be used all year round and will keep my skin looking healthy and hydrated? With summer quickly upon us, I am in the market for a solution and found it in three, easy-to-use products.

The Santorini Grape Velvet Skin Drink is a multi-tasking formula that is made to quench your skin’s moisture, replenish dryness, and bring your skin back to life. Known for using some of the best locally resourced material and cruelty-free ingredients, Korres has created a product that will enrich your skin for long-lasting results. 

I first tried out the velvet skin drink after a long bike ride. It was very hot and humid outside, so I knew I would need to rinse off my face fast. Once I began my skincare routine, I immediately felt a difference after applying the velvet skin drink. The product is formulated in a water-based substance with a precision dropper as the applicator and has a refreshing yet subtle scent of grapes. I could see using the Velvet Skin Drink a few times throughout the day or once at night. Since, it only takes a few drops to apply this product for complete coverage, guaranteeing a long-lasting value.

Another must-have product from the Korres skincare line is the Pure Greek Olive 3-In-1 Nourishing Oil. This multi-generated oil is made from pure Greek olive oil, which will enhance and restore the richness of your skin. After only a few weeks, I began to notice substantial changes in the texture and health of my hair, body, and face.

The dry patches on my skin quickly became smooth and lifelike, while the poor condition of my frizzy hair was left with a shiny glow after one use. It didn’t take long before this nourishing oil transformed the health of my skin as it is full of antioxidants, vitamins, and even locally owned sunflower seed oils made in Greece.

Each product you invest in Korres will support local farmers and their families, making the value of this brand all the more intentional and life-changing. One last secret to this product is that it has one the best fragrances you will ever use. I guarantee that you will be so blown away by this fresh scent, that you might end up using the oil as an all-over fragrance because it is just that good. 

One final step you might need for your skincare routine is to erase your makeup from the day or because you’re seeking a radiant, sun-kissed glow this summer. If that’s the case then look no further than Colleen Rothschild, Radiant Cleansing Balm.

At first, I was skeptical about using a balm to remove my heavy makeup. Yet, all it took was a single swipe of the cleansing balm for my entire face to be cleared up. Then, I took the muslin cloth that is included with the balm and gently washed off any residue for a completed spa day at home. When I tell you that this product will last you a long time, it will. Four weeks into using my cleansing balm and I haven’t even scratched the surface of my container, because a little product truly will go a long way. Not only will this balm take off all your makeup but it will cleanse and modify the texture of your skin. Made from Black Seed, Moringa Oil, and formulated ingredients that are expertly tested to improve skin texture and revitalize health. This is a product that you can trust for instant results. 

So, if you are looking for multi-tasking skin care formulas to use this summer or all year round then these are one of the most capable — if not the most capable — skincare products on the market right now. Feel good about the eco-friendly product you’re using, while looking great!
