color with the help of a pigmented, high-shine gloss. This formula also doubles as a lip balm; it’s ultrahydrating and lasts for up to 24 hours. The cherry-red color will have you turning heads left and right.
Natural glow? Check. Sun protection? Double check. This Summer, Alexys is after a fresh, glowy look that will keep her skin safe under the sun. Growing up Cuban in Florida, she was often told she didn’t need sun protection because she doesn’t burn easily — but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Even if you can’t see it, the sun’s rays can do major damage to your skin.
In the video above, Brian pairs Alexys with products that achieve the Summer beauty look she wants. Each with a unique and thoughtful blend of ingredients, the products accomplish everything from pollution and sun protection to supreme hydration to
give her skin camera-ready radiance.
