Well hello summer! So nice to see you again.
Since I’m headed on a short, three day trip to the seaside next week, that got me thinking about all the things I’ve got to pack for those few days and which beauty products shout out SUMMER and BEACH to me. These are summer beauty products that I consider every beauty lover should try.
The NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Or Amazing Dry Gold Oil is such a gorgeous product, a multitasker that gives a golden shimmer to your face, body and hair. This dry oil has a unique cocktail of 6 precious plant oils (borage, St Johnswort, sweet almond, camellia, hazelnut, macadamia) with a sweet fragrance for a velvety skin and a smooth, silky hair.
Hair product that I like to use during summer is Macadamia Sun Spray. It is a pre-sun treatment spray that helps to protect and shield my hair from harmful rays. Formulated with Pro Oil Complex, it hydrates and helps to minimize loss of color, dryness and damage.
For the sunscreen, I like to use Nuxe The Face and Body Delicious Lotion SPF30 (oh, it smells so heavenly) and Caudalie Soleil Divin Anti-Aging Facial Sun Care SPF50 because they protect my skin from harmful rays and prevents signs of premature aging.
Avene Thermal Spring Water soothes redness, softens and calms the skin. It is great to refresh when travel, after any outdoor activity or just to simply freshen up your makeup. Plus, for all the mums out there, it is good to know that it is safe for infants and children too.
Make up wise, all I really need is bronzer, lip gloss and a waterproof mascara (so far I haven’t really found one that I like and that is truly waterproof). Terracotta light sheer bronzing powder in the shade 02 Natural Blondes is one of my favorite bronzers ever. As for the lipgloss, we all know how I love MAC, so I chose MAC Lustreglass (which is apparently unavailable and/or out of stock 🙁 everywhere). The shade that I have is Pinkarat. It is a beautiful peach color packed with gold shimmer – it doesn’t really give any color to the lips, just a high shine with lots of shimmer.
These are some of my summer favorites, feel free to share yours in the comments below.
