Summer means easy beauty, and to get the lowdown on looking gorgeous with minimal effort, we spoke to the queen of chic simplicity herself, Aerin Lauder. The granddaughter of storied beauty icon, Estée Lauder, Aerin is known for her signature effortless style as well as a love for the finer things in life, including travel, art and fragrant flowers, all elements which she incorporates into her oh-so covetable product line. Transportive and evocative, AERIN Beauty products are inspired by memories and distinct moments in time that conjure a sense of reflection, calm, and a reminder to appreciate nature.
First up on our must-have summer beauty list is the AERIN Mediterranean Honeysuckle range, which was inspired by Aerin’s own love of traveling to the Med, and features a scent profile described as a “floral citrus.” Of the dreamy location, Aerin has said “everywhere has a sense of timeless beauty and effortless style and I always fall in love with the blues and greens of the sea. It’s such a magical place.” To transport you there without the passport, just apply a few spritzes of AERIN’s Mediterranean Honeysuckle Eau de Parfum, which evokes the feeling of beaches, blue waters and soft waves. Featuring a medley of floral notes like sweet Honeysuckle, Italian Bergamot, Lily of the Valley, Gardenia, and Jasmine Sambac Absolute, as well as fruits like Mandarin and Grapefruit; this scent is at once relaxing and uplifting. And for the travel-prone, AERIN offers a packing-perfect rollerball. Keep the olfactive experience going with the matching Honeysuckle Body Wash and Soap, which will leave you fragrant, hydrated, squeaky clean, and if you’re anything like Aerin, a little bit nostalgic.
Headed to soak up some rays? Slather on some of Aerin’s game-changing Beach Cream for Hair and Body, which is literally all you need for a day near the water. Imparting a light bronze glow as well as subtle shimmer, this lightweight, gently fragranced formula leaves you looking radiant and perfectly undone. Why else do we love this multifunctional lotion? Because it promotes relaxation and even becomes a deep conditioner when activated by the sun. Talk about doing it all!
Anyone who knows the AERIN brand knows that its collection of Rose Lip Conditioners is now the stuff of legend and a cult favorite. Not only are they incredibly soft and nourishing for your lips, but they are also the perfect beauty accessory for your handbag. We are obsessed with the universally flattering shades of pink and delicate scent, which doubles as a calming balm, providing its wearer a sense of tranquility. This Spring, AERIN expanded the collection to include three new shades: Bamboo Rose, Linen Rose, and Garden Rose, each of which leaves behind a gently tinted glow on the lips. Aerin’s current fave? Bamboo Rose, a light coral shade, which she says gives off “a subtle hint of color” and texture. “I keep it in my bag to give my lips a natural glossy finish when needed,” she says. Clearly, we couldn’t agree more.
Bon Voyage, beauties!
