The LA Girl’s Guide to The Best Summer Beauty Brands

Looking to spruce up your skin-care routine? The LA Girl is here with three new beauty lines and their hottest products. Maybe one is perfect for your daily, or nightly, routine. Here is The LA Girl’s Guide to The Best Summer Beauty Brands.


Best Skin Days

If you are looking for a cruelty-free and vegan option for skin protection, try Iris&Romeo‘s 5-in-1 SPF cream. This cream comes in 25 SPF and leaves your skin soft, moisturized, and looking youthful. The tint in this cream worked as a light to medium coverage foundation(without the heavy feel of makeup), dependent on how much we used. This product comes in 12 different shades, so finding the right shade for you will be a breeze. Through their skin shade chart, available on their website, you are able to select a cream based on your skin tone and its undertones. Remember, as the seasons change, so does our skin tone. We suggest (if the shade becomes too light or dark) that mixing in a little bit of your foundation helps fix correcting the shade your cream comes in.

Sometimes the heavy weight of makeup every day doesn’t feel great, so we’re definitely incorporating this into our routine when we don’t want a full-coverage face of foundation. Wearing a form of SPF every day is important. Not only does this product help protect our skin from the sun, it is formulated to help protect against blue light rays. For work, we stare at a computer all day and our phone all night. It is reassuring to hear that our skin will be protected from most aspects of our daily lives with just one product.

Get Radiant

Beat (Z)it Serum

Get Radiant introduces the NEWEST Revolutionary Acne Serum. It is the first serum to target all three acne culprits at once and is highly effective when talking about those stubborn pimples that never seem to go away. If you are looking to enjoy your healthy, glowing, hydrated skin this summer, Get Radiant can make your dreams come true. We’ve all used those products that are able to clear up acne but sadly they leave your skin dry as can be, which ends up causing more breakouts. If this is an issue you suffer from, the Beat (Z)it Serum not only clears your pimples but hydrates and allows your skin to glow all summer long.

The founder of Get Radiant, Areeba Ahmed, had her own days of suffering from severe acne so she has been there and done that! For you LA Girls that need something new and can’t seem to find your go-to product, try this serum because we have a feeling you will never go back to your previously used products! Zap those pesky pimples just in time for your summer days at the beach and cocktail nights downtown. Summer skin breakouts? No chance with this new fabulous product!

Spice Beauty

Milk and Rose Salt Soak

This LatinX-owned brand has CBD-infused products to maximize your relaxation routine. Their Milk & Rose Salt Soak smelled great and added a relaxing aesthetic to the tub. This product is infused with goat milk, Himalayan, and Epsom salts, along with CBD that foams up into a cute bubble bath with real rose petals. The little salt grains dissolved fairly quickly, so it didn’t feel like laying on sand or little rocks (which we love.) Your muscles can relax and feel at ease with this product, especially after a hard day at work.

B&B Oil 

Spice Beauty‘s B&B Oil is perfect for the bath and the body. Running one or two full droppers under running water can add to your bath or your salt soak if you pair the two products. Baths aren’t your thing? No problem. This oil can be used as a moisturizer by itself or fused with your favorite lotion/moisturizer. By adding a couple of drops into your moisturizer, you can still gain the full benefits of this product.

Both of Spice Beauty’s products are cruelty-free and made in the USA. After using these products, skin felt soft and smelling great. The ingredients they use are great for locking in moisture and helping your skin look younger, longer.


Hydrating Glow Crème

Take your shoes off, relax, and feel like you’re sitting in a spa chair with this gem of a brand, VSOTO. Developed by Vance Soto, this line of products is sure to leave your skin feeling clean because they are made clean! Cruelty-free, paraben-free, and no animal testing are three things that stood out to us making us want to buy it. Once you feel the creaminess lathered on your face, you’ll want to have it around forever, too! With a variety of products, based on your skin concerns, you are sure to find the right products for your specific needs. Whether you are looking for an exfoliator, anti-aging, hydration, or a mix of them all, VSOTO Skincare has a way of providing your skin with just what it needs.

The Calming Cloud Crème and Hydrating Glow Crème stood out to us the most because of their ability to hydrate, and leave our faces feeling rejoiced! They are both packed full of essential oils and have a way of making you feel soft and smooth after just one use. If your skin is lacking hydration and is craving that moisture that it deserves, give it some TLC with VSOTO’s line of products.

True Botanicals

Calm Pure Radiance Oil

True Botanicals will be your best friend this summer if you feel like your skin never has that glowing- look effect. This Pure Radiance Oil was designed for sensitive skin and instead of causing purging as many brands do, it will soothe and comfort your skin. It is great for Rosacea-prone skin, redness, and those fine lines that pop up on us. This oil is filled with 27 plant actives as opposed to pesky chemicals that may harm your skin. Nutrient-rich, Calendula oil-rich, and it is sure to leave your skin feeling hydration rich!

Summer is fun and all, but has a tendency to leave your skin dry and flaky. By using the True Botanicals Calm Pure Radiance Oil on your skin morning and night, you’ll ditch your dry skin for the sun-kissed and glowy feel instead. Invest in the best products for your skin!
