Solid & Striped Just Launched Its First Beauty Collection (& Yes, It Involves Sunscreen)


Whether your plans are to hit the beach, lay poolside, or lounge in the park, sometimes all you need to enjoy a sun-filled summer day is a swimsuit and sunscreen (arguably the season's most important accessory). And while in the past you likely picked up both of these warm-weather essentials separately, thanks to the launch of the Solid & Striped Suncare collection, you can now snag the two from one stylish destination. The fashion-girl favorite brand for swim and resort wear is now branching into beauty, unveiling two sun-protection products on June 24 that'll complement all your skin-baring looks perfectly.

"Suncare seemed like the natural next step for Solid & Striped, and the perfect extension of our swimwear collections," said Isaac Ross, founder of Solid & Striped, in a press release from the brand. "We're excited to launch suncare that can be used at the beach or year-round as part of your daily routine. We worked hard to create a product with a modern formula, free of ingredients that are harmful to marine life and the environment."

For its initial foray into the category, Solid & Striped worked with Alexis Page, formerly of MAC Cosmetics, Glossier, and Pat McGrath, to develop the two formulas that are dermatologist-tested, vegan, and cruelty-free. On top of that, you won't see parabens, sulfates, oxybenzone, mineral oil, or retinyl palmitate listed in the ingredients.

First up? The Face Sunscreen — a $28 sheer, weightless formula that provides 30-SPF protection. The sunscreen goes on like a serum and contains ingredients like apple fruit extract and cranberry extract that'll not only protect your complexion, but keep it hydrated.

As for the rest of your body? The All-Over Sunscreen will do the trick with its lightweight, water-resistant formula that promises to absorb quickly so you can hit the beach without delay. The new launch also contains broad spectrum SPF-30 and can be used on your body as well as your face. You can scoop up the 8-ounce bottle of lotion to lather on daily for $28; however, you can also grab the travel-friendly 3-ounce size, $18, to throw in your carry-on.
