Summer Favourites


Hey everyone!..



My favourite summer products:-

  1. Oriflame feet up antiperspirant spray:- This is one of the most unique product I have ever laid hands on, and it has everything that I was looking for. I hate yucky smelling feet, and the heat and humidity here in Mumbai is so intolerably high, so by the end of the day I'm drenched with sweat top to bottom ( gross alert). That's why I never leave my house without spraying this on my shoes and feet, especially if I'm wearing ballerina flats or pumps. Feet up smells so fresh because of the firangipani scent in it, the fragrance lingers for a long time and the formula gives your feet a cooling sensation for awhile. (Rs 399)



Took this picture a long time ago when I was back home in Asssam, never thought I used it somewhere. 


2. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock ( SPF 30 ) :-  I hate rubbing on sunscreens that take forever to disappear, and leave a white-ish layer on my skin (ughh)!!.. So when I saw this was a sunscreen which I could just spray on and be done in seconds, I was sold.. It has SPF 30 with both uva & uvb protection, and stays on my skin for a long time as its water and sweat proof.  I first heard of this product from Lisa Eldridge and I absolutely love her suggestions. I never leave my house without spraying this all over my body, even on rainy days. You can't spray it directly on your face though,  however you can spray it on your palms and pat lightly on your face. ( Rs 600)

3. Lush Herbalism :- This is by far one of my favourite purchases from Lush, and this is my second tub of Herbalism. What I love about Lush is that all their products does exactly what it says.. and this one is a face cleanser which promises to fade away acne scars and blemishes. It looks kinda scary when you see it for the first time, I definitely was skeptic at first, it looked like a lump of moss. hahah!!.. But then I started using it, you just need a coin sized amount mix it with water to make a paste out of it, and scrub those acne scars away. This cleanser is made out of rice & almond powder, rose water, and the mossy green colour is the result of the chlorophyl water in it. I didnt see any significant result from the frist use, but as I continued on I could see the change in my skin, it felt smoother, the marks were fading, fewer new zits, I feel like I have an inner glow in my face whenever i use it. It is just a cleanser and will not remove make-up that effectively, you need to use a separate make up remover before using this. I highly suggest you take a look at this product next tiem you pass by lush. This does not lather up like other normal cleansers would, but works beautifully nonetheless.  ( Rs 600 for 100gm)

4. Kate Moss by Rimmel London in no 20:- I"m always impressed with how affordable & incredable Rimmel products are. This is a brilliant bright red with a blue undertone, has great colour payoff, stays on really long leaves a stain on your lips and feels like you haven't worn anything. I love the texture and it has a matte finish but doesn't dry your lips out. Priced at Rs 215 I think its perfect. Plus the packaging is really cute finished with a Kate moss autograph..

5. Colorbar nail paint in Lime Margarita:- Oohh la la this is a real pop of colour on my nails on a hot summery day. It goes on really smooth on your nails  and the best part; it dries up in seconds!! (Rs 175)

6. Oriflame eye dust in lilac:- This little thing has been laying hidden in my shelves for so long that I almost forgot about it. I recently rediscovered it and was experimenting looks with it. Its is very very shimmery with chunks of tiny glitter in a lovely lilac colour, however, it is too sheer to use it as a shadow, so instead I decided to use it as a highlighter for my inner eye corner. Best decision ever, I use it everyday now.
I have it on my inner eyes in the pictures below:-


7. Loreal go 360 clean anti breakout cleanser:- As you probably must have guessed by the name, it is a cleanser for acne prone skin ( me and acne have a unbreakable relationship). This has 2% salicylic acid in it., and why I chose this product instead of tons of other anti acne products out there is because odf the sponge scrubber thingy that comes along with it. I thought this was an incredibly clever idea, this helps lather easily,gently scrubs away those yucky ripe pimples ( is that a word, ripe pimples, lol you get the idea right? ) and cleans into the pores. I have started using this very recently, and have not seen a difference in my skin yet, but I love how it cleans my face and leaves it feeling fresh. I use this at night, after i remove all my makeup, and I like using Herbalism in the morning. (Rs 399)

8. Avon Glimmerstick in blue:- My last product is a blue glittery eye liner from avon, which I also bought a long long time ago. Its this bright indigo colour, goes perfectly with any outfit, and makes my eyes stand out\. What I particularly like about this is that I don't need to use a ton of products along with, just this and a mascara looks like I've put in loads of effort in my makeup. I am not able to find out how much this one was for but it must have been in the range of Rs.180-250.

So that is all of my favourite products for Summer/monsoon, I would love to know yours, do leave me a comment telling what they are!.
