Summer Things

June 23, 2015


Čeprav se letošnje poletje ni začelo ravno najboljše, verjamem, da bo veliko vročih in sončnih dni, zato sem se odločila za objavo namenjeno prav poletju in nekaterim izdelkom, ki se krasno podajo tem dnem.
 Zaščitni faktor je nujen! - krema za sončenje za obraz je na sončen dan obvezna! Moja nedvomna zmagovlka je Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Facial Moisturizer z zaščitnim faktorjem 30. Vse kar morate vedeti je, da jo potrebujete. :) Več pa si lahko preberete tukaj. Poleg zaščite obraza pa ne pozabite tudi na ustnice. Jaz sem pri slikanju pozabila, saj se je balzam potuhnil v mojem žepu. Vseeno pa moram omeniti čudovit vazelin za ustnice z zaščitnim faktorjem 15 - Hurraw! Sun Protection Balm SPF 15. Hurraw! so eni izmed mojih najljubših balzamov za ustnice in tale vlažilen balzam ima prekrasen vonj, ki me vedno spomni na počitnice in morje. Tako da sploh ni čudno, da ga tako rada uporabljam.

Odstrani se mrčes! - nihče ne želi nadležnih pikov komarjev, jaz že vem, ker sem ogromen magnet zanje. Moj fant se včasih pošali, da sploh ne potrebuje proti komarnih sprejev, ker ima itak mene zraven. :) Klopi pa tudi niso nobena šala, vam lahko povem, da borelija res ni prijetna stvar. Zato se le zavarujte! Moja izbira za zaščito sta Badgerjeva izdelka proti mrčesu. Anti-Bug Balm v pločevinki imam že od prejšnjega poletja, letos pa sem kupila še izdelek v stiku, ker je veliko bolj prijeten in enostaven za uporabo. Vsebujeta preproste a učnkovite sestavine, kot so ekstra deviško olivno olje, čebelji vosek, ricinovo olje in eterična olja "citronelle", limonske trave, cedre, rožmarina in pelargonije.
Osveži svoj obraz - poleti imam rada osvežilne gele za čiščenje obraza, sploh zvečer in na počitnicah na morju. Eden izmed mojih najljubših je Facial Cleanser od ameriške znamke Acure. Ima osvežilen, citrusen vonj in osvežilno, lahko tesksturo, ki se lepo peni ter odstrani umazanijo in ličila. Kožo pusti rahlo suho in žejno vlage a tonik to hitro popravi. In če ga že omenjam, še vedno obožujem rožno vodo, še posebej Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel toner. Nerada uporabljam vato, pravzaprav jo uporabim le pri odstranjevanju laka za nohte, zato tonik vedno prelijem v stekleničko na sprej. Poleg tega, da tonik vedno uporabim pred nanosom kreme, ga nanesem tudi na sveže naličen obraz. Ličila se tako lepše zlijejo skupaj in se tudi dlje obdržijo. Čeprav v največji vročini veliko ličil kar izgine s kože. Najboljša uporaba rožne vode v spreju pa je zagotovo prav na vroč dan, ko sploh ne veš več kako bi se ohladil. Preizkusite pa boste vedele o čem govorim! :)
Izstopajoči barvni odtenki - vsak dan je dober dan za čudovite barvne odtenke, poletje pa je sploh krasen letni čas za uvedbo barv, tako v oblačilih, kot pri ličenju in na nohtih. Kričeči barvni odtenki šmink, kot sta Nudus Survivor*, temno roza oziroma odtenek fuksije za svež videz in Red Apple Lipstick Sunkissed* za zlat, bronast, zagorel in sijoč videz. Dve odlični izbiri za vroče poletne dni in tople noči. Upam, da se kmalu spet pojavijo! Za nohte pa sem izbrala kar štiri barve, ki so super tako na nohtih na rokah kot na nogah. Pastelna odtenka, kot sta lila Zoya Malia in Benecos Peach Sorbet se krasno podata k zagoreli koži, saj jo še bolj poudarita. Če pa morda sanjate o počitnicah na morju, le kdo ne?!, potem le preizkusite moder odtenek Sparkles od Benecosa ali SpaRitual Emerald City. Tako si tudi v mestu lahko pričarate vsaj en kanček morja.

Even though our summer hasn't started on the right foot, I believe there'll be lots of hot and sunny days and because of that I decided to write a post featuring few products that go great with nice summer days.

Get your Sunscreen on! - a sunscreen is a must on a sunny day! Or any other day for that matter. My winner is without a doubt the Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Facial Moisturizer SPF 30. All you really need to know is that you need it! :) Read my review here if you want to know more. There's also one product I totally forgot to include in the picture! I did think of it but then it hid from me in the bottom of my pocket. :) I'm talking about the Hurraw! Sun Protection Balm SPF 15. Hurraw! lip balms are one of my favourite lip products and this moisturizing balm with a gorgeous scent, which reminds me of summer and holidays, is the perfect choice for sunny days. 

 Bug Off - no one wants those super annoying and irritating mosquito bites, I would know, I'm like a magnet for them! My boyfried sometimes jokes that he really doesn't need a mosquito reppelent because of me. :) I wish I was also mosquitos bites free! Ticks are also something you want to avoid, having Lyme disease is no fun either, trust me! So you better take care of yourself! A product I'll use this summer is the Badger Anti-Bug Balm in stick form. I've already used the one in tin last year, but I decided to buy it in a stick too because it's way easier to apply. Both contain simple yet effective ingredients like Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Beeswax, Castor Oil, Essential oils of Citronella, Cedar, Lemongrass, Rosemary and Geranium.

 Fresh your face - in the summer time I like to use fresh facial gel cleansers, especially in the evenings. One of my favourites is the Acure Facial Cleanser. It has a fresh citrusy scent and a refreshing, light texture. It lathers nicely and removes all the dirt and makeup from the day. It leaves my skin fresh but at the same time also a tad dry. No worries, a good toner quickly fixes that. Speaking of toners, I'm still loving the Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel toner. I don't like using cotton pads, I only use them when I'm removing nail polish, so I rather decant the toner in a glass spray bottle. I always use a toner before I apply a cream and I also love to spritz some when I finish my makeup. That way the makeup lasts longer and it looks nicer, more even and not cakey. Well if it's super hot even that doesn't help. The last and my absolute favourite way of using a rose toner or any other toner in a spray bottle, is on a hot day when you don't even know how to cool yourself. Water helps of course, but just try spritzing some toner on your face and you'll know what I'm talking about. :)

Pop of Colour - every day is a good day for colours, but summer is just the perfect time for including them in your wardrobe, on your nails, lips. When it comes to "in your face" lipstick shades, I like to go with vibrant colours such as Nudus Survivor* and Red Apple Lipstick Sunkissed*. For more of a fresh look go with the beautiful pink or fuchsia Survivor, but if you're more into bronzed, sun kissed and glowy look, then Sunkissed will work great for that. It's on of the most gorgeous and bright oranges I have in my collection. These two fun colours are perfect for sunny days and warm summer nights. Lips done, now let's move on to nails. I picked four colours that look great on hands and toes. The pastel shades like Zoya Malia and Benecos Peach Sorbet go amazing with tanned skin. But if you're longing for summer holidays on the beach then you should definitely go with Sparkles from Benecos, the bright navy blue or SpaRitual Emerald City. So if you're stuck in the city at least your nails will look like sea.


Have an awesome summer!

Jana xx
