a bit of color
Lottie London, a vegan, cruelty-free and low-cost British brand, is positioning itself as the darling brand of Generation Z. It offers a range of products including eye shadow palettes, lip oils and pencils for the eyes. Our favorite is the two-in-one lipstick and blush. Very practical, the “Cheeky Kiss” is available in different colors. Very hydrating, this stick blush for lips and cheeks contains vitamin E and hyaluronic acid. It is applied on the cheeks to have a better complexion and on the lips, to have a little color. Lottie London products are available exclusively at Walmart, in stores and online.

Put some oil
For its brand new range of body and hair products, Attitude offers a selection of gels and shampoos enriched with natural leaf extracts (watercress, nasturtium) and coated with rather attractive essential oils (petitgrain and jasmine, ylang- ylang and bergamot, patchouli and black pepper, peppermint and sweet orange). The sensations are soft on the skin and the fragrances leave a pleasant and subtle smell on the body and the hair. In addition to the beautiful minimalist refillable aluminum bottles, we also like the spout which distills reduced doses, reducing the tendency to over-consume. The EWG and vegan and cruelty-free certification seals complete a composition that is almost 98% natural and we can only salute these efforts to offer healthier products while remaining effective. The range, baptized Super Leaves, is available in liquid soaps, conditioners and volumizing, moisturizing, nourishing or clarifying shampoos.
Price for the entire line: $22 (473 ml), $44 (2-litre refill), except hand soap ($18 and $36, respectively)

For skin that needs special care
Specifically designed to counter skin conditions such as keratosis pilaris and hyperpigmentation, Aveeno’s new Teint+Texture range is composed of a replenishing lotion and a night cream to be applied daily. We really liked their combined effect, moisturizing and smoothing, and especially their fresh and milky texture which did a lot of good for the driest areas of the body, such as elbows and knees. The lotion even has a gentle exfoliating agent which has acted effectively on the typical irregularities of dry skin, without however weakening the epidermis further. In short, it’s an interesting, simple and unfussy skincare duo that has quickly become part of our daily routine.
Price: 24.99 each, online or in pharmacies

In short, pure and natural as we like. If it was its Aqua Bomb moisturizer that made it viral, this new broad-spectrum derivative supports and confirms its good reputation: light, it deeply hydrates (thanks honeysuckle), without leaving any greasy effect or, above all, the slightest white streak. We adopt, even if the rays are discreet these days, they will eventually arrive promised! Ideal summer and winter. Use with or without your favorite moisturizer.
