Hello my beautiful friends :)
Today I decided to do my “summer favorites” for June/July and share with you what are my current favorites during these very very hot days in Croatia. When I started collecting things for the post, I realised that pretty much everything I have is in pink-peach tones which looks super sweet and girly and I love it!
I’ll just jump straight to reviews and impressions and I hope you’ll enjoy this post :)
L’OCCITANE PEONY PERFECTING MIST
This is one of the most beautiful and refreshing mists I’ve ever tried and had. It smells so good, makes your skin soft and fresh, without any leftovers or feelings that something stayed on your face after, it’s very light and perfect for any skin type and it also minimizes pores and makes your skin look even. I usually use it between cleansing my face and putting a CC cream which is also from L’Occitane and those two leave the flawless feeling on my face for a looong time. It is also a make up fixator which is a nice plus :)

L’OOCITANE PEONY CC SKIN TONE PERFECTING CREAM (MEDIUM)
After 2 weeks of using it, I can say that this is the best CC cream (including BB’s that I’ve tried). Before this one I used Clinique CC cream and I was satisified, but I feel like that one is more for the winter/spring time. This one is so great, it’s actually in white color and it turns into your skin tone, but your skin type should match the color of the cream (light or medium). It gives such a nice natural look, it’s not very mat but it gives that natural shine and flawless look. I don’t feel it on my face at all and it stays on for the whole day and it has SPF 20 which is for me very important. This is my must have for this summer :)

HAWAIIAN TROPIC ISLAND BERRY LIP GLOSS SPF 25
I finally found a lip gloss with SPF that I actually like! It tastes like those lip glosses that we used to use when we were 10, it’s very sweet if it gets into your mouth but I don’t mind it at all. It gives some color, not too much, more gloss than the color and it’s not sticky, which is exactly what I was looking for. It definitely deserves a spot in my favorites. I can’t remember the price exactly, but I think it was around 8-9€ here in Croatia. You can find it in probably any drugstore, in the section with Hawaiian sun protection products.
THE BODY SHOP LIP BUTTER
The Body Shop and I have a very romantic relationship and I don’t think there’s a product that I don’t like from that brand.After Banana Conditioner, Shea Butter Body Butter and few face products, this one is again on my list of all time favorites! I got it as a gift, it’s in flavour Pink grapefruit and it tastes amazing. It’s a proper lip butter, very soft and smooth and it moisturizes lips more than regular lip balms. The only bad side is if you put too much, it can create white spots on your lips so that is something to be careful with.

MAX FACTOR VIVID SUNSET MINI NAIL POLISH
Perfect color for summer, perfect size for a travel cosmetic bag, goes with everything and anything, has a very nice finish gloss and lasts for a week for me :) That’s enough to say! The price is I believe around 1.5€ – perfect!
P.S. At the moment I have gel nails, I swatched the nail polish on my finger here, it’s almost the same as gel but I have nail polish on my toes at the moment :)
CATRICE DEFINING BLUSH 050 APROPOS APRICOT
This one is currently my favorite blush and it’s the only one in my summer cosmetic bag. Very nice and light color, gives a natural look and a bit of golden shimmer which is perfect for summer days and nights as well. I would suggest it for girls who are not too tanned yet because it might be too light for tanned skin.
I wish you a great summer
