I talk about skincare routine quite a lot on the blog, but it’s basically because I noticed huge improvements in my skin condition after I started using products more consistently. Of course, being a beauty blogger means that temptation to try new products is always there, so it takes time to learn how to switch things up or to incorporate one or two new products gradually instead of using a bunch of products one day and the whole different bunch the other.
For most of us, summer skincare routine is a lot different than in other, especially colder, seasons. Due to summer weather, heat, the sun and other factors our skin requires lighter, yet hydrating beauty products.
Lavera Basis Sensitive Cleansing Gel – this tube is almost finished, so I’m planning to get a replacement. First three words that come to my mind is clean, clarifying and refreshing. It makes my skin feel good and doesn’t break the bank. You can read a more detailed review here.
Dr. Hauschka Revitalizing Day Cream (review) – like I mentioned many times before, this is my all-time favorite day cream for warmer seasons. I have used up an uncountable amount of bottles of this day cream and have no plans to stop. I wish I could use it all year round, but, unfortunately, my skin gets too dry to use it for colder seasons. I can’t think of any downsides of this… And, seriously, I need to stop praising this product, like, right now (it’s really good, though…)!
Green People Brightening Day Cream (sample size) – I have just added this brightening cream to my skincare routine, but I like it a lot. It’s great for days when your skin for whatever reason requires more hydration or looks dull. The cream instantly freshens it up and makes it feel soft and lovely.
True Nature Botanicals Pacific Night Serum With Retinol* (sample size) – I’ve been using this serum instead of a cream before bedtime and it does wonders to my skin. It’s thick, yet feels very light and leaves my skin smooth.
Dr. Hauschka Night Serum (sample size) – I’m all about Dr. Hauschka’s holistic skincare approach, except one thing – saying no to night creams. I’ve tried, but it was a torture for my dry skin and seemed to dehydrate it even more. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one having these feelings, because Dr. Hauschka has recently introduced their new product – Night Serum. It’s a light, oil-free and nicely scented gel serum, which allows your skin to breathe at night and, at the same time, doesn’t block its rejuvenation processes. I bought this sample out of curiosity because there are many good reviews about it, however, this is not a product for me. I feel it on my face even after it sinks in and it makes my skin feel tight and uncomfortable. However, it would benefit those with oilier skin types and looking for a balancing serum.
Dr. Hauschka Soothing Mask (sample size) – I am trying to choose facial masks in smaller packagings rather than big packagings because I tend to forget to use them regularly and they go bad, which is a total waste of a product. That’s why I like Dr. Hauschka sample-size masks – one tiny tube lasts up to 3 uses. This soothing mask calms, moistures and evens out skin tone, I can’t recommend it enough for sensitive skins.
Pure Daily Essentials Ageless Eyes Eye Cream* – rich and creamy with an herbal scent. It’s a great eye treatment, but unless you have plenty of time in the morning to allow it to sink in properly, I would only recommend it using only before bedtime. I usually don’t have problems like puffy eyes or dark circles, so I can not comment on that, but if you’re looking for a simple 100% natural eye cream for aging prevention it’s a nice product to give a try.
Tata Harper Be True Lip Treatment* – it’s a real treat for dry lips, so this baby goes everywhere with me these days. As I mentioned before in this review, I don’t notice any plumping, but it’s one of the most hydrating lip products I’ve even tried.
So that’s what I’ve been using lately. If you have recently shared your summer skincare routines, let me know in the comments, I’d love to see them!
