Summer Beauty Products
I have used some of these before, but most of them are just as new to me as they are to you.
An item that was on my Empties List, so I restocked.
It's my favorite eye cream, and I use it twice a day to prevent wrinkles around my eyes.
Also: During summer it's useful to have a base under your eye make up / concealer, that does provide your skin with moisture, but not block your pores.
This is the normal cream which I use as a main base under my everyday make-up.
It's light and moisturizing, and also contains a lot of collagen.
A heart shaped sponge, that I use for contouring, but it can be used as a concealer sponge as well.
A colored powder, that I mix with my translucent powder, or use for a more natural look.
This compact powder comes with a mirror, a sponge and... glitter!
It's not as extreme as it sounds, it's a soft glow that I personally really like for summer and special occasions!
This was the first time for me seeing blue blotting paper, and it works the same way powdered blotting paper works: It soaks up the extra oil collecting on your skin and keeps you from over-using powder.
It's a smart helper and takes pretty much no space in your make-up pouch.
I usually get the Pearl mask for a special treatment once a month, I tried the Tea Tree mask for the first time. I was impressed by the effect: It lighted up my freckles that I unfortunately get during summer.
Anyway, one of the products I'll definitely buy again!
Another item that I use regularly at home. It's supposed to help against blackheads (dark spots on your nose that block your pores and make the tip of your nose look really oily). I really love the smell of it, and it does what it promises. Just make sure to clean your face with a face wash before using it, as it will have no effect on oily skin.
Usually I don't buy hand cream during summer, but it's really hot and when you shower and wash your hands a lot the skin will get incredibly dry. Also it's great for aftercare of gel nails!
One of the products I absolutely love. It's like a face mask, but for your hands.
(You can also get these for your feet, if you are interested in softening your skin on the soles)
It also comes with a small guide on hand massages.
Something I discovered when I first came to Japan and repurchased in a different color now.
It's a glittery liquid liner to enhance your undereye bags / aegyo sol.
They give a more natural look during summer than white or silver liners.
The last item of this haul is a lipstick in a slightly purple colorway.
I used to not really go out with lips or color in general, but this summer and my new wardrobe gave me the feeling to try it out. This one is incredibly long lasting, and it comes with a suprise:
The ring around the base is detachable and can be worn as an accessoire.
