Selfless by Hyram

Judging by all the questions I get from my friends (all of whom have presumably owned faces for a longish time) people are still overwhelmed when it comes to a skincare regime. This new gentle collection from skinfluencer Hyram Yarbro and The Inkey List is all about clean, minimal ingredients and ecological sourcing practices. The ingredients and intended use for each are listed right in the product names, which makes for amusingly long names but at least you’re not going to be confused! Please meet the Retinol & Rainbow Algae Repair Serum, Niacinamide & Marajuca Daily Support Moisturizer, Salicylic Acid & Sea Kelp Pore Clearing & Oil Control Serum, Centella & Green Tea Hydrating Gel Cleanser and last, but by no means any shorter, Mandelic Acid & Rice Bran Gentle Exfoliating Serum.

From $ 26, sephora.com.

Shiseido Clear Stick UV Protector

Okay, this is a bit of a cheat because it’s technically an end-of-May launch, but I have to give a shoutout to this humble new sunscreen stick. Is it because it’s made with a trippy technology that reacts to heat, water and sweat to strengthen the UV protection? Is it because it’s 50+SPF and made up of 50 percent skincare ingredients and the clear formula can be used invisibly on all skin tones?  No, it’s because my kid and my husband will actually use it, which is a miracle. The daily facial sunscreen battle I’ve been having with my fair-skinned son has finally ended with this. He doesn’t flinch, he doesn’t bury his face in the couch, he doesn’t wipe it all off immediately because he hates the smell or the texture—he says it actually feels good when I put it on. And then there’s my husband, who has only ever (begrudgingly) used sunscreen if he’s at the beach. But this he even takes this with him when he goes for bike rides. Like, in his bag?! Voluntarily? A miracle, I’m telling you.
