Summer / Travel Essentials: Beauty

Summer / Travel Essentials: Beauty
1. Forever Yummy and No Chips Ahead from Essie. | 2. All About Eyes from Clinique. | 3. Lip Balm #1 from Kiehls. | 4. Sunscreen and After Sun Lotion from Garnier. | 5. Pink Grapefruit Body Mist and Shower Gel from The Body Shop. | 6. Tiger Balm.
Here some info on why I picked these products:Essie Nail polishes have been much hyped and after careful consideration (should I really spend 10€ on a little bottle of nail polish?) I finally caved. I picked up Vanity Fairest and Forever Yummy and was quite positively surprised. Yes, these nail polishes are worth the hype. However, you should also think about investing in some Top Coat. As I wasn’t very happy with the one I had, I bought the “No Chips Ahead” Top Coat from Essie and that as well was worth every cent I spent on it. The manicure lasted longer than any other I had before!.
All About Eyes from Clinique is an eye cream that really soothes the lids. It makes the skin soft and smooth and I’m really considering buying the full sized version once I’m done with my sample.
Let’s talk a bit about this Lip Balm from Kiehls. This is another product that was hyped so much, and again I was asking myself: 8€ for a lipbalm? What is so special about this lip balm that it warrants a price like this? Again I was more than positively surprised by this product. It didn’t only feel good on my lips for a short time, no, it actually cared for my lips more than just on the surface. For the first time in months my lips were smooth and healthy looking. This will come in even more healthy next winter.
Sunscreen and After Sun are pretty self explanatory, though I picked Garnier as a brand because I really like the smell (especially of the sunscreen for kids!). The After Sun has a very cooling and calming affect on my skin and also moisturizes it pretty well.
Pink Grapefruit Body Mist and Shower Gel. Ladies and Gentleman, I’m so in love with this product, it’s insane. I just love the scent so much. The Body Mist has a very subtle and pleasant note, which is perfect for me. I tend to get headaches from perfumes really fast, but this has been a very good friend to me so far. The scent is the perfect mixture between fresh, fruity and sweet and I’m actually thinking about getting the actual perfume as wel.
Tiger Balm comes in super, super handy when you get bitten by mosquitoes. Just apply a small bit on the bite and it will start to heat up, making the itch all but disappear. I’m always carrying one jar with me in summers!
