Summer Beauty Essentials

Hello my darlings! How are you doing in this lovely day? I am personally going mental at the moment because I have a really important exam tomorrow, which I am stressing about. The good thing though is that it’s my final one and I will be off for a great summer vacation yay! After the exam I’ll be going to get my hair done (finally!) because my roots are ridiculous… Anyway, today is the second post of my ‘I Heart Summer’ series and I wanted to share with you my Summertime Beauty Essentials. These are some of my favorite products that are helping me feel easy breezy during the hot months! :)

Lush Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner

Who doesn’t want to have flawless, soft and silky skin during the summer when it is so much on display! My little secret to perfect skin is Lush Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner. This little gem serves as conditioner not for your hair but for your body, leaving the skin feel and look SO soft and hydrated! I use it under the shower, right after I use my shower gel and I let it sit for a couple of minutes, then rinse and towel dry my skin. The results are absolutely amazing and I can’t stop stroking my skin haha. Not to mention that this stuff smells divine; it has the loveliest non-artificial rose scent with a hint of honey – YUM! <3 I definitely recommend this and even though it’s on the pricier side it’s totally worth it in my opinion!

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Even if my skin is super soft and smooth it doesn’t make up for how pale it is. I am such a pale little duck and I am always trying to find a great product to get it look better and healthier. I tried some self-tanners in the past but they just weren’t doing it for me, until I found this Sally Hansen Airbrush tanning spray in Light Glow. It just gives the most beautiful tint of color and lovely dewy finish to my skin. I just exfoliate really well before applying, spray the product all over my legs and then using my hands (with rubber gloves on) I disperse it until I get an even look. I just love it how pretty and perfectly tanned (without it being over the top) my legs are and they actually appear slimmer, which is a huge plus in my books! I will definitely do a full review on the Airbrush Legs soon with proper photos and everything so keep your eyes peeled! (:

Bath & Body Works Beach Cabana Candle

I am a huge candle lover and my hands down favorite candle brand is Bath & Body Works. Their candles are absolutely amazing and the scents are to die for! From their Summer Seasonal Fragrance I am loving Beach Cabana. It is such a lovely fresh and clean scent, which I adore having burning in my room during the summer. It reminds me of just clean towels or soap and even though it sounds weird I really enjoy it! :) And can we please have a moment for the adorable name! Ahh it makes me summer dreamy every time I see the title! <3

Victoria’s Secret Fragrance Mist in Aqua Kiss

Speaking of clean and fresh scents I am in-love with this body mist by Victoria’s Secret. Aqua Kiss has a really light floral-y smell of “rain-kissed freesia and daisy” and it is the perfect refreshing summer fragrance in my opinion. This product is also infused with conditioning Aloe Vera and calming Chamomile, which energizes and calms the skin really nicely! I love to just spray this all over my body when I feel hot and it makes me instantly refreshed and smelling lovely! Definitely recommend checking this out and if you don’t have Victoria’s Secret near you check out other body mists because they are the perfect way to cool down during the hot, humid days! 

Senscience Replenish Cream

First of all, I am really sorry that this product is not showing at all in the photos but when I was taking them on the seaside I didn’t have my MacBook with me so I had no idea how the photos will turn out… :( The Senscience Replenish Cream has been a true friend of mine when I am on my summer holidays and my hair is constantly exposed to the sun. The product has been formulated with Shiseido Laboratories’ exclusive blend of silicone emulsion to replenish moisture and condition dry, damaged or sun exposed hair. It leaves the hair super soft and smooth and I can definitely see how much hydrated it is when using it after all day spent in the sun. I just apply a little product on freshly washed hair and style as usual. :)

Bottle of water

Speaking of summertime beauty essentials I need to mention how vital drinking water is! During the summer our bodies tend to dehydrate so much more easily and it is super important to keep out moisture levels high. The best way to do so is to drink lots and lots of water. I am drinking at least 8-9 glasses of water a day and I can honestly say that I’ve noticed a huge difference. My skin cleared up and I feel so much more energetic and healthier! I am always trying to keep a bottle of water with me no matter where I go so that I never get dehydrated and I suggest you do the same! :))

Essie – Cute As A Button nail polish

What is summer without bright, vivid nails I personally can’t imagine! I am such a nail polish lover and having fun nail polish on is a definite beauty essential! My favorite nail polish this season is Essie – Cute As A Button. It is such a gorgeous pinkish orange-y coral and it just resembles summer in my opinion! <3 I did a full review on it and you can see it here.

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

For the summer I tend to go for really light foundation and the one that I really like is Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream. It feels really lightweight and it gives a lovely light to medium coverage. I love that this BB Cream evens out my skin tone and makes my face look so glowy and dewy without being it greasy or oily. I have the shade Light and it is a great match for my pale skin. This product is really hydrating but needs to be set with powder so that it stays on longer and I love using my Too Faced Primed &Poreless loose powder. This BB Cream also has SPF 30, which is great! :) I definitely recommend checking it out if you are on a hunt for new BB cream or lightweight foundation; it is really affordable and makes the skin look healthy and beautiful.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Milk Chocolate

One of my definite summer beauty essentials is definitely a nice bronzer. I love creating beautiful ‘sun-kissed goddess’ type of look and it is my go-to summer makeup look. To do so I obviously need a good bronzer and one of my favorites is Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Milk Chocolate. Since I am really pale at the moment it is the perfect match for my skin but when I get more tanned I will need to go back to my NARS Laguna because it is a bit darker. Chocolate Soleil is a beautiful matte, which doesn’t look orange-y or muddy on the skin. It applies really easily and I give it bonus points for the amazing cocoa scent, which makes my makeup routine a yummy chocolate heaven! <3

Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Sari Pink

I tend to keep my eye makeup really simple during the summer so I usually go for bright, vibrant lips as a little bit of pop of color. My hands down favorite summer pick is Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Sari Pink. It is a beautiful blue-toned coral with pretty fuchsia  and silver shimmer in it. It is SO glossy and shimmery and gives just lovely semi-sheer color on my lips, which I absolutely adore. Sari Pink is also really moisturizing and stays on the lips for about two hours, which I recon may not be great for some of you but it personally doesn’t bother me. I honestly think that Sari Pink is a gorgeous summery shade and if you are a coral-lover like me I’m sure you’ll fall in love with it so check it out when you have the chance! <3

So lovelies, these were my top beauty essentials for this summer season. I really hope you enjoyed this post and let me know which your summertime beauty picks are! Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you again really soon! :)

Lots of love,

  13. While at school my friends made fun of me because I used to carry (I do still) a 1,5 L bottle of water around with me and I was the only one being able to lift my bag without any problems, haha.
    Most people don't understand how anyone can drink that much but being used to it I find no difficulty in it. My body really demands that amount of water and I get thirstier much faster than anybody I know.

    Do you have a favourite sunblocker?

  38. I recently tried the Maybelline BB cream after wanting to try it for a while and really am pleased with it :) I agree that the setting powder is a good idea otherwise the lasting power isn't the best. But still, a great product for the price!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I can't live without Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer either! I use it everyday and it gives the perfect amount of color. I have a post on my blog all about Lush products that I use but I have never tried Lush Ro's Argon Body Conditioner. I love their products and this one sounds divine! I will need to pick some up next time :-) Great post!
