31 July 2019 Beauty Products For A Super-Chill Summer

Welcome to July, the month of beach days, barbecues, and — based on these new July 2019 beauty products — very chill beauty routines. After all, nothing says "summer vacation" like minimal makeup, SPF skincare, natural hair, and a dose (or three) of stress-relieving CBD.

First thing’s first: Sun protection should be a priority year-round, but it’s natural for SPF application to ramp up in the summer — and Solid & Striped (yes, the swimsuit company) has you covered with its latest launch, a broad-spectrum SPF complete with ‘70s-inspired packaging. Or, on Jul. 25, head to Credo Beauty to stock up on its newest clean sunscreen: an ultra-matte formula from Canadian brand The Sunscreen Company. Slathering yourself in SPF doesn’t necessarily mean opting out of a summer glow, though. M-61’s Hydraboost Body Butter Gradual Tan, which launches Jul. 1, makes it easy to fake the effect of sun-baked skin; while Goop’s new Body Luminizer offers a more subtle approach.

If you haven’t yet indulged in the year’s biggest trend — CBD, of course — July’s the time to try. What better way to top off a lazy summer day than with a dose of cannabidiol, either for skin (via NYX’s latest collection) or stress (with bio-available capsules from new brand Kaleidoscope)?

Ahead, the 31 chillest beauty products July has to offer — from makeup to skincare, hair care, nail care, fragrance, wellness, and more.

1. Stila Suede Shade Liquid Eye Shadows

Launching Jul. 8, Stila’s new Suede Shade Liquid Eye Shadows aren’t exactly matte, but aren’t exactly shimmery, either. The product relies on iridescent pearls to “lift without adding shine” instead, according to the press release.

2. Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge

Clé de Peau Beauté adds 16 new shades to its Radiant Liquid Rouge range later this month — and for the first time, they’ll be available in both high-shine and matte finishes.

3. M-61 Hydraboost Body Butter Gradual Tan

On Jul. 1, M-61’s Hydraboost Body Butter Gradual Tan arrives exclusively at Bluemercury. The self-tanner delivers hydration, too, care of hyaluronic acid and shea butter.

4. Together Beauty Flower Supply

Clean hair care products from Together Beauty are set to appear on Sephora shelves later this month. Flower Supply, an organic oil blend that can be used for scalp, hair, or body, is the best of the bunch.

5. Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum

Pick up a bottle of Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum on Jul. 7 — it brightens skin with a potent mix of glycolic acid and vitamin C.
