Hello, again! Summer is definitely a time of the year where taking an extra mile when it comes to skincare is acceptable. We tend to be in the sun longer than usual; thus, having products that deliver what we need most is a must.
Today’s post I’m going to share the products I use regularly in the summer and why I love them. I hope this will help you if you’re looking for new products to try and hopefully what works for me will do for you.
I use this not only in the summer but all year round. I believe there is a scrub version but this one, in particular, is the product I re-purchase after I went to try out other products and didn’t work. It has a creamy texture and especially when you have it lather up, it just feels satisfying into the skin. If you’re like me who love their face wash floppy so they know that all the specks of dirt are coming off, this one might also be for you. After washing it off it makes my skin smooth and clean without that feeling of tightness that makes me so uncomfortable. Definitely my favourite out of every single face washes I have ever tried.
I have an oily skin and almost into the sensitive side thus using a toner is a big help. This one, in particular, is soothing and actually kind of calming my skin down especially this summer season. I get tiny red bumps around my forehead and chin but when I started using this toner they disappeared. Another thing is, we know washing alone does not really remove all the dirt. Therefore, using a toner on a cotton pad also removes the residues that I missed from washing. It feels refreshing and it claims to be moisturizing as well, which it really is. The consistency is watery with a very light scent to it.
I can’t even tell you how much I really love these moisturizers! These are the Essentials Urban Skin Detox Night Cream and Essentials Urban Skin Defence Day Cream Moisturiser SPF 20. You can already tell which is which. I have used different moisturizers before; high-end or drug store but nothing really made my skin the way it is now. The main ingredient of this product is green tea and that’s presumably why it’s not harsh and heavy for my skin. Perfect for summer because it’s light, fast absorbing, and provides you with the moisture that you need particularly in the summertime. This doesn’t break me out and it makes my skin extra glowy. Highly recommend this for my Asian girls out there who are looking for new products to try!
This is a no-brainer. We need to wear sunscreen people, especially during the summertime. I have been using this product for 3 months now and it’s been doing wonders for me. I love myself some anti-ageing factor from anything I get my hands into, hence I am sold by this.
I used to be so diligent when it comes to moisturising my body. I remember I even do it night and day, then I became super bad at it. At nighttime, I hardly apply lotion and during the day if I’m not running late then I can go through applying such. The reason is that sometimes I get lazy and I don’t like the sticky feeling that it gives me. I have been trying to be better at it though. I am using the Jergens Daily Moisture for day to day moisturizer and the Hawaiian Silk Hydration with SPF 50 when I am actually in the sun. To go extra, I use the Shimmer Effect for a golden glow finish mainly when I’m out and about having fun under the summer sun. Each product absorbs quickly, it feels light in my skin, doesn’t make me feel greasy, and it smells like an absolute summer!
Okay, that is it for now, thank you so much for reading. Until next Saturday!
