Products for Mature Skin – the Best of Summer 2021

skin care products for mature skin

I realized I have not shared many of my favorite hair and skin products in some time – and my list has gone through some pretty big changes in the past few months.

Here are my five favorite products for mature skin – the best of summer 2021!

I’m working on choosing a bit more budget-conscious products these days. Also, I’m transitioning toward clean, toxin-free products – although I will admit the items on this list do not all qualify for that designation! I’m a work in progress, plus if it’s not truly a “clean” product but I’m still using it, it just means I really, really like the way it works.

My Favorite Skincare Products of Summer 2021

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

Why am I starting with the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask?

  • Softening balm texture for quick absorption
  • Enriched with vitamin C and antioxidants
  • Hyaluronic acid and minerals lock in moisture

A generous layer of this soothing mask at bedtime does amazing things to my lips! The flakiness disappears and I wake up to soft, smooth lips. I use it during the daytime, too!

Oh, and this stuff smells like a dream!


Summer Fridays Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream

Summer Fridays Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream is my new favorite daily moisturizer.

  • Loaded with Hyaluronic Acid
  • Oil-Free so it’s not greasy – even in the summer!
  • The gel slips on, spreads easily, and disappears!

My daughter introduced me to Summer Fridays (thanks, Meaghan!) and I have been addicted ever since! In fact, my next pick is also from Summer Fridays…


Summer Fridays Soft Reset AHA Exfoliating Solution

Summer Fridays Soft Reset AHA Exfoliating Solution

  • A powerful, three-in-one solution packed with 16 percent AHAs and niacinamide
  • Exfoliates and visibly brightens skin while reducing the appearance of pores
  • Smooths the look of fine lines and visibly reduces other signs of aging

This one’s a powerhouse! I only use it at night and let it do its thing while I sleep.

I love every product I’ve tried in the Summer Fridays brand, including Jet Lag Mask, Super Amino Gel Cleanser, CC Me Serum. If this brand is new to you, I honestly cannot recommend it highly enough. Try it – you’ll see!


EltaMD UV Clear Facial Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 46

EltaMD UV Clear Facial Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 is unquestionably the best face sunscreen I have ever used. No big surprise, as it was recommended by my dermatologist!

  • Zinc oxide facial sunscreen with broad- spectrum coverage protects against UVA and UVB rays from the sun
  • Helps calm and protect sensitive skin types prone to acne, rosacea and discoloration

No creepy white face after you apply this! It sinks in invisibly! I use this every morning, sometimes on its own and sometimes under makeup. And yes, I use sunscreen all year round. Doctor’s orders! It is so worth it to get that extra protection as I go about my day, whether I’m outside a lot or just getting indirect sun in the car or house.

Other Elta products include Skin Recovery Face Serum, Barrier Renewal Complex Face Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid, and Renew Eye Gel for Dark Circles. Full disclosure, I have only used the sunscreen but I suspect I’d like these others, too!


Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender

I keep a travel-size Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender in my pool/beach bag so that I can grab it anytime I need a quick face refresh!

  • Boosts dull, fatigued skin with an infusion of botanicals
  • Leaves skin feeling cool, clean and refreshed
  • Vitamin C-enriched

Prefer a different scent combination? Try Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater or Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea or Aloe, Sage and Orange Blossom instead!
