Summer is in the full swing and I am really enjoying every minute of it. I love summer because I can stay outside as much as I want, enjoy barbeques with friends, ride a bicycle, play golf and tennis and constantly swim in the Sea. Oh, I love the Sea! I feel so blessed to be able to swim in the luxurious Mediterranean Sea on a daily basis. What can be better than that?
Summer is also great, because you don’t need to wear a lot of makeup, you can almost leave your face as it is and still look tanned and beautiful. My makeup during summer stays almost untouched, all I use during day time is a lip gloss and mascara, and for my nights out I love to apply my smokey eyes kit.
Although makeup can be set aside, I don’t forget to pay extra attention to my skin as it needs extra care during summer, because of constant exposure to the sun. So, below are the products which I use and which work wonders to my skin. I am not a beauty blogger, expert or dermatologist and don’t intend to become one. I just want to share with you beauty products which work for me, which I use and love and provide you with the opportunity to share some of your favorite products with me. So girls,let’s stay rich, young and beautiful forever!
1 – Face
Here in Spain the sun is very strong and as it shines every day all day through out the year, sunscreen becomes your number 1 friend. I am not going out of my house without applying sunscreen to my face. This summer my favorite is La Roche-Posay with SPF 60. I love it’s light texture and the fact that it absorbs instantly.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid ( Normal/ Combination Skin )
2 – Body
For protecting my body from sun rays I use SHISEIDO Lotion with SPF 30. Before living in Spain I never used sunscreens with more than SPF 10. Now SPF 30 is a minimum I use here and I still get my tan. There was an article, unfortunately I don’t remember where exactly I read it, that the word sunscreen should be banned from creams with SPF protection less than 30.
Shiseido Extra Smooth Sun Protection Lotion N SPF 30 UVA
3 – Lips
Sometimes, when I want my lips to relax from any lip gloss or lipstick I am constantly wearing, I apply ELIZABETH ARDEN Eight Hour Lipcare. It nourishes my lips and also protects them from sun rays. I really should start using it more often. I also read somewhere that if you want your lips to be soft and beautiful, you should apply lip balm on your lips before you go to sleep. Should try it tonight.

I know that almost every girl has her own beauty ritual, when she spends almost an hour in the morning and the same amount of time before she goes to bed, in front of the mirror applying different kind of skincare products. I am a very lazy girl, I don’t like to spend a lot of time and effort and therefore I don’t have any specific ritual. What I do is as follows:
In the morning: I wake up, go to shower and after that apply my daily moisturizer on my face, neck and decollete area. After that apply a tiny bit of magic cream on my eyes and that’s it, ready to go :) Yeah, if I go out I also apply my sunscreen.
In the evening: I just wash my face with one step foaming cleanser, which cleans my skin and even eye area from all the dirt and again apply my moisturizer before going to bed.
Once per week I scrub my face with and lay down for 10 minutes with Hydra+ Moisturising Anti-Fatigue Mask by ROC.
And these are my beauty tricks :) Oh, and I visit my dermatologist from time to time for facials and to make sure she makes everything to preserve my beauty and youth.
The products I use for my so called beauty routine are as follows:
During one presentation here in Marbella I received a sample of Gelee De Rose Intensive Multi-Active Moisturizer BY TERRY and was impressed by a light texture and effect it left on my skin. So, after I finished my sample I went out and bought this cream and never been happier. I use it in the mornings and sometimes in the evenings, before going to bed. I don’t need separate night cream.

I already told you about my time and effort saving Flawless Skin Oil Free Foaming One Step Cleanser by LAURA MERCIER. If you are as lazy as me and you still feel like you should use some kind of cleanser, try this one and let me know afterwards how you loved it.
Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Oil Free Foaming One Step Cleanser 200ml/6.8oz
My precious, precious eye! When I first noticed lines under my eyes, I was depressed for a week, but then I managed to get myself together and started looking for the best miraculous solution that could stop my eyes from losing it’s natural youth. I tried numerous products, but nothing seemed to work or satisfy me. Until one day I heard my friend raving about magical and rich Valmont cream and how satisfied she was with it. I researched a little bit and decided to try their cream for eyes. I loved it! I simply loved everything about it. Now this is the only product I use for my eyes.
Valmont AWF Cyto Complex Eye – Factor I 15ml/0.5oz
So, these are the skincare products which I use on a regular basis. The other beauty products which I want to try in the nearest future are La Mer Creme de La Mer and Clarisonic waterproof sonic skin care brush. Have you ever tried these products? Are they worth the money? Please let me know.
I never realized how hard it is to write about beauty products. How can someone explain in simple words the effect these products leave on your skin, the texture, smell, everything?! Beauty bloggers – you are geniuses! :)
I would love to hear about your favorite skincare products and your beauty rituals. Also, if you have your favorite beauty blogger that you love to read, please share the link with me :) I feel like I want to know more about skincare.
Stay beautiful, my lovely Rich Girls!
