It's exciting to find out what others are buying and loving, especially the experts. That very information is partly what we use to create our data-driven shopping guides, after all. Enter our What's In Your ___? interview series, where we get all the details on the products cool people can't live without.

Sunscreen can be a complicated business. However, Stephanie DiPisa, founder and CEO of Solara Suncare, is ensuring that’s not the case with her increasingly popular 100% mineral skincare-meets-suncare brand. Created to solve a need for people (like her own family) with extremely sensitive skin often irritated by popular sunscreen options, Stephanie is the magic and inspiration behind her formulations, which is led by her own healing journey with Lyme Disease. After learning what you put in your body and on your skin plays a vital role in your overall wellness routine, Stephanie set out to thoughtfully and sustainably curate a line of sunscreen products that are results-driven and uniquely powered by adaptogens, superfruits, and proven skincare actives, marrying beauty and science with a skin protective twist.

With that in mind, we had to know what beauty products Stephanie currently can’t live without. So, we asked her. Ahead, see and shop the 16 beauty essentials Stephanie always has on hand in her makeup bag.
