Summer Fridays (founded by Lauren Ireland and Marianna Hewitt) is a brand that’s been on my radar for quite a while, but I’ve just gotten around to trying a couple of products lately that I’m totally in love with. Now, the price points are slightly higher than a few other brands on this list, but I’ll happily pay it because I still consider it reasonable for quality skincare. I’d heard through the grapevine (aka on Instagram) that the brand’s Heavenly Sixteen Oil is pretty next-level. Normally, I would shy away from face oils because I had cystic acne growing up, and if you’ve ever dealt with acne, you know anything with even a whisper of the word oil in it causes you to say, “Immediately no.”
But this oil is composed of 16 non-pore-clogging oils that condition and hydrate your skin in such a beautiful way. My skin always feels so soft after using it and has that healthy glow. It also absorbs well, which is a big deal to me considering that’s another tough thing about face oils—some of them feel like they just sit on top of my skin. The brand’s Overtime Mask is also a treat I like to throw in a few nights a week that leaves my skin looking brighter and feeling less congested.
