Since my last post about the Skin perfector products, I got questions about my whole summer skin care routine. I have to confess that this is an area that I would like to improve, especially right now when I’d rather use less makeup for a fresh look.
I divided the post between products that I use daily and products that are seasonal.
My daily Skin care routine
No matter what is the season these are the products that I use often.
Every day cleaner
Glo Skin Beauty – Phyto Active Cream Cleanser: This is my holy grail, keeps my skin refreshed and clean. As I’ve mentioned multiple times before, my skin is super oily and since I started to use this product it has helped to balance my skin without let it dry out. This cleaner stays in my shower and is super easy to use. It was a game changer for my skin.
Every day Micellar water
Caudalie – Eau de Beaute – I love this product so much that I wrote a whole post about it, you can read the full review here.
Every day face moisturizer
Estee Lauder – Revitalizing Supreme: It gives you super hydrated and healthy skin without making it oily. I particularly use it only once a day, but if you have dry or normal skin you can definitely use at least twice. The smell is super good and you can see the change in your skin right after the first use.
Every day face Serum
Estee Lauder – Advanced Night Repair: I got this product in one of my PR packages, honestly, I don’t know if I would buy without give it a try first. This serum is the perfect match with my cleaner, I use the Glo Skin cleaner in the shower and apply this serum right after, this guarantees me oily free skin the next day. This is my second holy grail to control the oil on my skin every day.
Every day Eye cream
VII code – T2 Oxygen Eye cream: This is a recent addition to my skin care routine. I’ve never had bright under eyes until I started to use this product. It is like a concealer without the part where I arrive at home and have to take it off haha. After using it for around 5 days I could start to see results. The bags under my eyes and dark circles were reduced like magic. The skin started to look more firm and youthful.
The eye cream comes with an activation strip, both need to be used together. Is very easy to apply, all you need to do is follow these easy steps: clean your face, massage your eye area with the activation strip and apply the cream to your eye area. You can use in the morning or evening after clean your face.
Every day body lotion
Nivea – Essentially Enriched, Dry to Very dry skin: Otherwise my face and body is very dry, this body lotion has been my favorite for years, it has so many oils that you glow in only one application.
Summer Skin care
Summer body lotion / Tan lotion
Jergens – Natural glow, medium to tan skin tones – This skin lotion gives you a beautiful golden tan. I love self-tanning products but I always have a hard time with the scent, some products smell so much that it gives me a headache. This body lotion smells good and gradually tans your skin.
Summer “express” tanning lotion
Tan Luxe, the body illuminating self-tan drops: I called this “express” because in only one use you can get dark skin. So, if are on a rush for tan skin, go for it!
It took me a few times using to get the effect that I wanted, the first 2 times got so messy that I ended up with a lot of spots with different colors on my skin, took me almost 2 weeks to get back to normal.
This is one of my favorite products for tanning because all the smell from the tanning products goes away when you dissolve the oil in your body lotion. BTW these drops and the Nivea body lotion always give the most beautiful summer glow.
