In the era of no-makeup makeup, skinimalism, and the like, skin prep has become an essential part of everyone’s beauty routine.
Making sure that your skin is locking in the serums and moisturizers you just applied while also acting as the perfect base for any complexion products you add afterward is a crucial step.
Obviously, we’re all huge fans of Dewy Latte (and it seems like you all are too). After recently going viral, the 4-in-1 product has become known for its quality and versatility. Within your routine, Dewy acts:
– As a moisturizer — Depending on your skin type, Dewy Latte can be used on top of (or instead of) your usual moisturizer to lock in extra hydration.
– As a primer — Think of it as one of the last steps of your skincare routine (after moisturizer and SPF), and the first thing you would apply right before makeup or foundation.
– As a glow booster — Mix in a few drops with your usual foundation or skin tint to look super glowy.
– As a highlighter – Apply a few drops on your cheekbones either on top of makeup or alone on those makeup-free days.
We tried all of the viral skin prep products. Here’s how they compare to Dewy Latte.
rhode’s Peptide Glazing Fluid
This product is certainly a rich, hydrating serum that falls more on the skincare side of the spectrum and is not necessarily a glowy primer. It also is primarily an oil-based product, whereas Dewy Latte is water-based.
Refy’s Face Primer
Although the roller-like packaging is unique and claims to sculpt your face, the formula itself here is actually super thick upon application. Compared to Dewy, it feels much heavier when applied to the skin.
Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir
Coming in at 30mL and a price of $85, this product is nearly triple the price of Dewy Latte for the same amount of product. Although it is mainly water based, it does also contain amounts of shea & camellia seed oil.
Saie’s Glowy Super Gel
Unlike the rest of these products (and Dewy Latte), this product comes in two shades and is pearlescent because it contains mica, which adds a sparkly finish as opposed to a more natural, skin-like one. It also contains a number of oils including Papaya Seed Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, and Squalene Oil.
