There are plenty of after sun products to buy in summer but I never found one that does the job for me: Soft skin, nice smell and not sticky is hard to find. In a previous post I reviewed Creme de Corps by Kiehls which is amazing but a little too expensive for everyday use.
Luckily I was given this amazing bodylotion by a friend: Treaclemoon One Ginger Morning has a nice ginger scent (obviously) and leaves your skin soft and nourished all day. I like applying this after my morning shower or after a day on the beach cause it makes me feel refreshed and awake.
What is your favourites bodylotion or after sun? Has anyone tried the other Treaclemoon products? What fragrance is the best one?
This summer I really love bright pink and coral shades on my lips. My latest discovery is the Soft Sensation Colour & Care Lipstick by Astor. I wear it in 403 – Attractive Coral. It is super moisturizing and highly pigmented. The best thing about it is the SPF 20 that protects the lips from sun damage. The colour is really intense, so if you want just a hint of colour, you can lightly dab it onto your lips or dab away with a tissue after applying.
When summer comes around you don’t want to spend too much time on getting ready and doing your make-up. You just want to get out to enjoy the sun – and of course still look your best!
I found some products that are just perfect for this season.
I have been a Kiehls fan for quite a while now and these are my latest discoveries. The BB cream has just the right amount of coverage to let your skin tone shine through and still hide imperfections. I don’t like wearing heavy foundations in summer cause when you tan, your skin tone changes and you still want a good colour match for every day.
The Creme de Corps is perfect after sun bathing. It leaves your skin hydrated and soft and has a lovely scent.
Again two amazing products for beach days. I love the hair oil because it prevents my hair from splitting. You need that little bit of extra care when your hair is exposed to salt water and sun all the time. You only need 3 pumps and work it into your wet hair.
The gel like polish by Guerlain is a top coat that makes your nails a little stronger without looking to thick. You can wear it alone or as a top coat over your regular nail polish and gives your nails a shiny look. Goodbye brittle nails!
High Beam by Benefit is an amazing highlighter that reflects sunlight and adds a bit of a glow to your tanned skin. Lightly dab it onto your cheek bones and below the eyebrows for a shiny finish.
As I said before, heavy make-up is nothing for hot summer days. Maybelline Baby Lips is a lip balm with a hint of colour. I wear it in Cherry Me.
