The Ultimate SPF Roundup.

Summer Skincare Facial SPF Sunscreen Products


As much as I am loving the extra Vitamin D and the general good vibes the sunny weather brings right now, this is also the perfect time to reevaluate your SPF game. I know, you are not only supposed to wear SPF in the summer, but every time you go outside. However, as the sun gets stronger I also like to double down on protecting my skin. So today I thought I would share with you my go-to SPF products and also explain how and when I wear each one. 

Summer Skincare Facial SPF Sunscreen Products

The CeraVe Facial Moisturising Lotion SPF 25 is my everyday moisturiser. I use it all year around and I just ADORE the consistency and how hydrated it leaves my skin. It's the perfect base for my makeup and I simply cannot go a day without it. A must in my beauty routine!

The Shiseido Sun Care Expert Sun Protector Face & Body Lotion SPF 50+ is THE facial SPF I love using whenever I know I will be in the sun a lot that day. It has a very similar consistency as the La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+, but for some reason I just tend to use the Shiseido more often. I guess I prefer the scent a bit, other than that they are basically identical.

Did you know you should touch up your SPF every couple of hours, even when wearing makeup? I tried using sprays on top of my makeup before but honestly, my face just felt too oily after. Then I came across the Shiseido Sun Care Clear Stick UV SPF 50+. Let me tell you, I am obsessed! It's a stick with a clear balm that you can simply glide one top of your makeup. Sure, some of the makeup transfers to your stick, depending how much product you wear. However, as I am the only one using it, I really don't care. Reapplying SPF has never been easier. Also, it's the perfect size to pop in my handbag! 

Whenever I go for a swim or a run I like to wear a sunscreen that is waterproof. For that my choice is the Avene Sun Sensitive Sport Fluid SPF 50+ is perfect for that. Yes, it is definitely heavier than my other products, however when I workout in the sun I don't really care much about any possible whitecast or oiliness. I just want my skin to be protected, all the time. 

What is your favorite SPF?

What's In My Summer Beauty Bag.

Summer Beauty Makeup Products Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Nudestix, Essie, By Terry


It is finally June! This means summer is just around the corner. And for me, not only my wardrobe changes during that time but also my go-to beauty products do. So today I am sharing with you my current fave products, all about makeup, perfume and nails.

The Makeup 

I really take a step back when it comes to wearing a lot of products in the summertime. Most of the time I do not reach for foundation at all. However, a good glowy base product is still a must for me. The By Terry Cellularose CC Serum is my holy grail. I wear it every single day. It gives my skin a healthy and fresh look while also evening out any minor imperfections. I adore it! For bronzer, I still stick to my trusted Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer. A classic. My highlighter of choice has not changed since the beginning of the year and is still the Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Afternoon Glow. But there is something new in my makeup bag: the Nudestix Nudies Bloom Blush in shade Cherry Blossom Babe. Honestly, their formula is to die for! I also love their shade range. I think I have to get Tiger Lily Queen next. A cream blush is just a must in the summer. 

The Perfume 

What is a summer without Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Perfume? A classic for a reason. This scent always takes me back to beach holidays, long nights and simply the best times. I am honestly the worst at describing scents but you should really give it a try in your local shop. To me, it smells like pure summer. 

The Nails

I love a good nude nail polish, but in the summertime, I like to go for a pinkier nude. There is just something about a fresh pink manicure that I associate with summer. My current fave is Essie Nails in "Sugar Daddy". Essie always has the most beautiful shade range and lasts the longest on me.

My Everyday Bag | Saint Laurent Collège Medium.




As much as I love browsing the shops for beautiful bags, I always tend to be drawn to the same style and size of bags. 

Over the years I learned that I adore a top-handle bag, which can also be worn cross-body. It has to be able to hold my phone, cardholder, keys and a few more bits but cannot be too large. And of course, I love black bags with gold hardware. But the gold cannot be too shiny or yellow, a brassy or aged-looking gold is just the right shade for me. Well, that sounds like I am quite picky when it comes to bags, right? 

Well, I might be. But then again, if you think about spending that amount of money on a bag, you better love every single aspect. I recently sold my Gucci Dionysus Mini (which I still adore!) and thought it was time for a new everyday bag that suits my needs a bit better. 

After a lot of research, I realized that the Saint Laurent Collège Medium is just the right bag for me. A classic that will surely stand the test of time. Not only is it a cross-body / top-handle hybrid, but it also has a beautiful and comfortable chain strap that has a small leather part on the top which makes it so easy to wear. The leather I chose already has an aged or creased look to it. I always try to stay away from bags that are extremely smooth, as I know that I will end up scratching them. This will not only bother me, but also reduce the re-sell value... something I always have in mind when making my purchases. 



Which is your fave YSL bag?
