Sea Breeze 2.0
We predicted last year that former Avon exec Patti Pao’s ultra-luxe line, Restorsea, wouldn’t take long to swim to the top of the beauty world. (And, naturally, we were right.) Based around Aquabeautine XL, a potent enzyme collected from the post-hatching waters of Norwegian salmon, these products promise to slough dead skin cells just as well as glycolic acid or Retin-A—minus the flaky, red side effects. While the number of products in the range has steadily grown from two (a day and an eye cream) to seven in just a few short months, the newly launched Recharging Finishing Mist is guaranteed to be your go-to pick-me-up during the remaining dog days (and between shows during New York fashion week). A few spritzes not only feel refreshing after a sweaty commute or a mad dash to Lincoln Center, but this water may as well have been drawn from the Fountain of Youth—it’s laced with the purest form of the breakthrough exfoliating agent, which leaves your complexion hydrated, soft, and glowing. Even better: The lightweight, non-greasy texture means you can layer it under or over foundation without causing a makeup landslide. But snag a bottle fast, this miracle broth is limited edition. In other words, the skincare catch of the summer won’t last long.
