Abella Skin Care Summer Accessories Kit

Summer is here and it’s time to have some fun in the sun! Take a look at our Abella Summer Bag Essentials featuring some of our favorites that we never leave the house without.

Abella ColorShade – fair, tan or dark? No matter your skin tone our four tints of ColorShade protect with SPF 35! The hint of color in the ColorShade adds the benefit of not having to cake on makeup to cover up blemishes or dark circles. Available in Light, Medium, Dark and Ebony here.

Hat and Sunglasses – must haves for additional sun protection

Pineapple – loaded with Vitamin A & C, this tropical fruit is affordable, travels well and is the perfect refresher after breaking a sweat. Add a slice or 2 to your water for an extra kick!

Abella Dual Cleanser – a gentle cleanser is a must after sun exposure. Our Dual Cleanser soothes and heals after a long day of sun and contains cucumber, aloe and bisabolol (found in chamomile) leaving the skin feeling refreshed & hydrated. Available here.

Portable speaker – Good tunes set the mood for any occasion! Songs we’re loving this summer: DJ Snake and Aluna George “You Know You Like It” and Ibeyi “River”

Scarf – easy to pack and lightweight, bring a scarf for a quick cover up or a way to spruce up your beach bag.
