Best of // Fresh beauty products
Every now and then I go through all those beauty bags I have and since there is hardly any space in my bathroom cupboard (it literally is the size of a shoebox) there are many! I move my favourite beauty items from bag to bag to suitcase to smaller bag and am in a constant state of not knowing what’s where. A couple of items I use stay in my bathroom cupboard though, as they are the ones, I am using right now. When I say right now it generally means all season. This summer season I have gone for zesty products ensuring that extra bit of freshness during those hit summer days.
No matter if you are in for some oil, a touch of perfume or your daily moisturizer: citrusy products are the way to start fresh – and these are my favourite products…
I stumbled upon this lotion as I was working with a makeup-artist. She has been using it for years and simply works it under your foundation. I had forgotten all about it until I was shopping at the organic store in my neighbourhood, saw the lotion and took it home with me (best decision ever, by the way!!!). The most efficient way to apply this daily moisturizer, is to invest in a brush. Simply apply a couple of drops of this super smooth and non-heavy moisturizer on your brush and work it into your skin. Not only will your face be getting an extra portion of freshness but the subtle scent will put you in a summery mood right away. Great about this lotion is its texture as it is so light, it almost feels like water and gives your teint an instant boost.
This is a body oil I recently started using. It firms and smoothens your skin while adding a touch of freshness! For me it works as the perfect after-shower refresher and has become my absolute must – especially on hot summer days. The Activist leaves your skin nice and moisturized while adding some extra shine. It’s best applied on damp skin so make sure to towel dry only for the oil to enclose all the moisture.
Last but not least the perfect summer scent: Biotherm’s Eau Vitaminée has been a classic for years. You can read all about how I got around to using it HERE. This perfume belongs to my absolute favourite summer scents and travels with me wherever I go. It works as the perfect refresher on a long day at work. I tend to pack it in my handbag and add a spritz here and there. My advice: Spray some in your hair and it will give off an easy scent throughout the day! If you are not a fan of perfume in summer, simply use the body lotion, it features the same scent while adding a bit of moisture. Now that you know all my favourite beauty refreshers, feel free to give them a go. See below for links to those exact items. xx conny.
