The Summer Skincare Edit.



Who wants loads and loads of foundation and concealer on their face on a hot summer day? Well, me neither. So the right skincare is even more important to me in the summer months. In contrast to winter, I love light textures, perfecting formulas but it still has to be hydrating. And I think I found the perfect routine for me. So I just had to share it with you.

I don't use any oils and only a minimum amount of serums in the summer. If I want a special treatment, I use my beloved Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. But this doesn't happen daily. I like to keep it simple in the warmer months.



Let's start what I use at night. I have recently fallen in love with Clinique products, one of my favourites is the Moisture Surge creme. So light, but super hydrating! Exactly what I need. For my eye cream, I go for the All About Eyes also by Clinique. Again a very light gel texture. I might switch to the rich version once the autumn/winter comes back around. I love matte lipsticks, also in the summer, so my lips always have to be in perfect condition (no one wants to use a matte lipstick on dry and cracked lips.. THE WORST!) For this I love my ultimate multitasking product, the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. You can use it for seriously everything, but I love it for my lips. There is a special lip balm version, but I just use the regular cream, as I can also use it on any dry patches on my face or my body.. seriously such a staple!

When it comes to skincare in the morning I just skip the eye cream completely. I know some people use it also before doing their makeup but I just feel my concealer would move way too much. For moisturizer, I love the Clinique Superdefense one. It has SPF 20, and protects your skin throughout the day while being extremely light. Obsessed!


I know this might already be a part of my makeup routine, but I personally love using my BB creams even on a no-makeup day. I love this natural but perfected look. My BB cream of choice is currently the Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day-Glow BB Cream. Even though the name might suggest, it has nothing to do with the standard Double Wear foundation, which is very heavy and full coverage. The only similarity is the lasting power. I can wear it all day, even when it's extremely hot (and a bit TMI: I sweat so much on my face haha..). So it is such a genius product for me. The finish is more a light coverage but very glowy. THE summer foundation/BB cream!

I hope you liked my little summary of my summer skincare routine. I would love to hear about your go-to products!

  2. Lovely picks, we share many favourites: the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream is a must-have for my lips as well and I love the ANR Serum (but I use it daily as serums are more important than moisturizers in my opinion)! I've been meaning to try the Estée Lauder Double Wear All-Day-Glow BB cream, so I'm glad to hear it doesn't have the heavy and full coverage side of the foundation from the same range!

  5. Love this post, so many blog posts I read today are full of heavy coverage bases so it's nice to see a real post on skincare. I went without any makeup on my face for about 6 weeks before my wedding and relied so heavily on Dermalogica for my break out areas (pregnancy spot hormones!) and the Clinique moisturiser. I have to be honest, Clinique really nourished my skin which is something so many brands fail to do!

  6. What amazing picks and you are so right - no one wants to have goops of foundation on and BB cream is such a good alternative! I use the Bare Minerals one because I find that it almost helps my skin!

  12. I opt for lighter oils and stop using moisturizers on top of my serums.

  16. I like going for a lighter base too but my skin is so dry that I still need quite a bit of serum or my concealer will look really cakey. I try and focus on my skincare in the evening too, using the Pixi Glow Tonic, to help get rid of any dry patches :) Have a great weekend xx
