Summer is almost here and I wanted to share with you guys some amazing products that I am currently using! Like I already said on the blog, I am a very curious person and I love trying new products. On this post , I will be talking about my favorites and essentials summer products .
In Summer we are exposed to the sun all the time and on our days off we like to spend the day at the beach or pool this is why it’s very important to get products adapted to our regular activities. For my hair I am using this Ultra doux shampoo and mask made with Neroli and Monoi from Tahiti. I Love Monoi oil since I was a kid and every summer I try to find products with this ingredient. (Monoï oil is an infused perfume-oil made from soaking the petals of Tahitian gardenias (best known as Tiaré flowers) in coconut oil). The shampoo has a gel texture and is very transparent , it leaves the hair very soft and curly ! The smell hmmmm 🙂 it’s a mix of orange blossom and Monoi and I am crazy about it! The Mask repairs , soften and protects the hair from the sun , pool and salt damages. The texture is very rich and creamy, I apply it to my ends for about 15 min than my hair end up looking shiny and curly ! They give me the perfect wavy beach hair style .
To keep my curls styled , I add to my wet hair this Shea Moisture curl and Style Milk . I use around 3 pumps for my entire head. I have pretty thick hair and this is enough for me. I once used more product than what I now use and my hair was a little greasy. If you have thinner hair I would definitely use less, or whatever works best for your hair type. This style milk leaves my hair SO. SOFT. my goodness! It defines my curls, gives them shine and my hair feels amazing. Plus, it smells like a tropical getaway trip in a bottle. My sister happens to think it smells too much like a piña colada, but I love anything coconut-y. ( Results of all products combine in the picture below)
Since the weather becomes warmer and we sweat a lot during the day, I love taking at least 3 showers a day! I know some of you will tell me that I am wasting water, but this is how I am :):). We all love scented soaps, it makes us feel cleaner and fresher for some reasons!!! This is why I always get exotic scents because it always remind me of vacations or send me back to memories from my younger age in Ivory coast. This Cottage pineapple and coconut cream smell like a fresh Pina Colada like we like them on a warm day on a patio:). The texture is very smooth and becomes foamy when you massage it into your skin. You can also use it to make a relaxing bath after a long, stressful day at work or school. You can make a delicious cocktail and lay down and relax in the bathtub for half an hour and I promise you will feel amazing after it. The brand offers many different scent, you can choose the one that suits your mood while getting it !!!!!
It’s not only the body that get affected by the heat during summer lol, my face becomes so oily and shiny that it’s impossible for me to apply any makeup. It does not really bother me at all because I am not a fan of Face makeup unless it’s to go to a special event or out at night. I only use lipstick and blush to keep my tan skin glow. This is why I always need some makeup remover wipes !You can put them in your purse and use them to get rid of old surface skin cells, dirt and dust, grime, make-up and bacteria, and keeps skin pores free of clogs to breathe freely. I am using this organic and gentle makeup remover wipes from nectar of nature. It contains almond oil and aloe Vera to nourish and soften the skin. After using it my face skin feels cleaner and very refreshed!On weekends or days off while doing groceries or any outside activity it’s important to always have a water spray to hydrate your skin after sun exposure.After you’ve been outside all day and your face is sweaty, red, hot and well…gross. Mist this wonder water spray all over your face, and you’ll feel instantly refreshed, soothed, and, just trust me, perkier. I love it after exercising also, it restores my skin glow :).
The skin on your body is just as important as the skin on your face, so don’t skimp on moisturizing it. This shea butter deeply moisturizes, repairs and rejuvenates dry, dull skin while preventing early signs of aging. I only use it after my shower to keep my skin moisturized the entire day. It’s a great summer product because the texture is not so heavy and rich , you won’t feel it at all.
As I said in this post, In summer time I barely wear Makeup. I just came back from Mallorca and my skin is currently very tanned so the only products I use as makeup are these 3 new makeup forever Pro products. The Pro Bronze fusion bronzer is perfect for my skin tone. I can use it all year without looking too orange or too dark. It gives me a natural glow without putting too much product on, which is perfect for me because I hate looking fake and caked like half of the ladies out there right now. For My lips I change depending on my mood, but on a daily base, I love wearing neutral or nude colours on my lips and the combination of this Aqua lip liner 1 and this Pro sculpting lip give a great result of my skin tone. It gives my lips instant fullness with this dual ended sponge attachment, the semi-matte formula is so comfortable to wear on your lips and the highlight adds volume. I really suggest you to try them at Sephora if you get a chance to. ( Here is what i Look like with the makeup on)
