My Skincare Routine Of This Summer

Summer’s pretty much losing its momentum and lovely September is approaching, along with first signs of autumn. In fact, I’ve already noticed a few trees turning yellow and although we still definitely have beautiful, sunny days ahead – I’m definitely looking forward to the new season, my favorite season of all. I cannot wait to get myself some new perfumes, sweaters, jeans, boots, a few new skincare and makeup pieces. But before I do all of that, I figured it would be nice to sum up my skincare routine for the past 3-4 months.

I’m rather happy with what I’ve been using but I will be switching things up a bit come autumn. Already my skin’s reacting to higher humidity levels and my hair’s also increasingly frizzy. I’ve already purchased new makeup removal products but so far a combo of oils and micellar waters was what I was mostly using to remove all makeup (including waterproof makeup). I’ve ran out of the Afrodita Cosmetics Natural Almond Oil in which I’d drench a cotton pad and then add a few drops of preferred micellar water. I’m extremely pleased with the La Roche-Posay Micellar Water for sensitive skin. I’d even dare to say that I prefer it to Bioderma’s. Regular washing up was done by the best affordable wash on the planet (at least I think it is) – the fab Alverde Clear Waschcreme. If you can get your hands on it, trust me – you need it in your life (it suits all skin types!).

A lovely addition was Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner. I do enjoy rosewater immensely and it’s such a great pairing with with witch hazel as you get a hydrating refreshment along with tightened pores. Lovely! Exfoliation was taken care of by my trusty Alpha-H Micro Cleanse. Alpha-H is one of the top brands I completely trust as not one of their products has even let me down. Night skincare regime included two products, which I’ve alternated depending on my skin’s needs. When my face was a bit oilier, I used the luxurious Lancome Visionnaire Nuit Beauty Sleep Perfector. And if my face felt a bit dehydrated I cracked out the Avon Nutra Effects Miracle Glow Lightweight Facial Oil. It’s not a dry oil and it definitely feels nourishing but it never broke me out or caused congested pores. I might pop a review soon as it is a lovely product.

My eye area was cared for (day and night) by the fantastic Clinique All About Eyes Rich. This is, hands down, the best eye cream I’ve ever used. My daily mositurizer was Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief – a hydrating gel cream which never dried out my face and felt like a cool, tall glass of water in midst of the worst heat. My skin drank it up a treat. I’ve used it every single day and it’s an amazing pairing with the aforementioned Clinique eye cream. This day cream doesn’t contain SPF so when I wore makeup, SPF was in my BB and CC creams and if I wasn’t wearing makeup I slapped on the La Roche-Posay Anthelios AC SPF30 MatteFluide Extreme. Loyal to it since 2013. My breakouts were controlled by the HG of all HG’s – the one and only La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+. Can you tell I adore this brand?

  • Ljeto je polako na odlasku i divni septembar nam uskoro dolazi, zajedno sam prvim znacima jeseni. Ustvari, vec sam primjetila da pojedine krosnje pocinju biti prosarane zutim nijansama a jedna puzavica u blizini moje kuce pocinje da se crveni sto me neizmjerno veseli. Definitivno se radujem novom, meni najdrazem, godisnjem dobu. Jedva cekam nabaviti nove parfeme, dzins, cizme, par komada preparative i dekorative. Ali prije nego ucinim sve to, pomislila sam kako bi bilo lijepo sumirati sto sam sve koristila za njegu lica tokom ovog ljeta (posljednja 3-4 mjeseca).
  • Prilicno sam zadovoljna kombinacijom koristenih proizvoda ali sam odlucila malo promijeniti stvari sa dolaskom jeseni. Vec sada moja koza reaguje na visoku vlagu u zraku a i kosa mi pocinje biti neposlusna zbog iste. Pripremila sam novitete za hladnije dane sto se tice uklanjanja sminke ali mi se tokom ljeta odlicnom pokazala kombinacija ulja i micelarne vode. Upravo taj dvojac je bio besprijekoran po pitanju uklanjanja sminke sa ociju (ukljucujuci i vodootpornu sminku). Sada sam vec potrosila Kozmetika Afrodita prirodno bademovo ulje kojim bih natopila blaznice a potom dodala par kapi micelarne vode. Veoma sam zadovoljna sa La Roche-Posay micelarnom otopinom za osjetljivu kozu. Cak cu se usuditi reci da mi je malo draza od inace Bioderminog favorita. Kada je regularno umivanje u pitanju, tu nije bilo konkurencije perfektnoj Alverde Clear Waschcreme umivalici. Iduci put kada svratite u najblizi dm, obavezno je kupite (odgovara svim tipovima koze!).
  • Divan dodatak njezi mi je bio Thayers bezalkoholni tonik sa ruzinom vodicom i hamamelisom. Inace volim ruzinu vodicu a odlicna je kombinacija uz hamamelis. Njih dvoje osvjeze kozu a i pore su malo suzene zahvaljujuci hamamelisu. Kada je uklanjanje mrtvih celija sa koze u pitanju (tj. eskfolijacija), neprikosnoveni Alpha-H Micro Cleanse mi je odrzavao ten svjezim i omogucavao lakse obnavljanje koze. Alpha-H je jedan od vrhunskih brendova kojima licno vjerujem jer me do sada niti jedan njihov proizvod nije razocarao. Nocnu njegu sam sklopila od dva proizvoda, koristeci ih nazmjenicno prema potrebami. Kada bi mi lice bilo masnije, koristila sam luksuznu Lancome Visionnaire Nuit Beauty Sleep Perfector kremu. A ukoliko bi mi lice bilo dehidrirano, njegovala sam ga sa Avon Nutra Effects Miracle Glow Lightweight uljem za lice. Ne ponasa se kao klasicno suho ulje i prilicno je hranljivo ali mi nikada nije izazvalo bubuljice niti neko zacepljenje pora. Ukoliko stignem, posvetiti cu mu zasebnu recenziju.
  • Okoloocno podrucje sam (ujutro i navecer) njegovala sa fantasticnom Clinique All About Eyes Rich kremicom. Nju smatram najboljom okoloocnom kremicom koju sam isprobala, stvarno me iznova odusevljava. Moja dnevna krema tokom ljeta je bila Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief – hidratantna gel krema koja mi nije isusivala lice i koza je na nju reagovala kao na najprijatnije osvjezenje usred velikih vrucina (doslovno bi je “popila”). Koristila sam je svakog dana  i odlicno njeguje kozu uz spomenutu okoloocnu Clinique kremicu. Posto ona ne sadrzi zastitni SPF faktor, kada bih koristila sminku u svojim BB i CC kremama bih se oslanjala na SPF koji sadrze. A ako ne bih koristila sminku datog dana onda sam lice mazala sa La Roche-Posay Anthelios AC SPF30 MatteFluide Extreme. Vjerna sam mu jos od 2013. godine. Sve bubuljice sam tretirala proizvodom koji uistinu zasluzuje epitet HG – sa jednim i jedinim La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+. Mislim da primjecujete kako je LRP inace meni omiljeni preparativni brend od svih.

    Potpisujem sve rečeno za Thayers i Alverde umivalicu 🙂 a ostalo nisam probala ali budem … Meni je Olival Regenerativna krema sa smiljem hit već skoro pa godinu dana zajedno sa Vichy BB SPF 50, a za bubuljice Avene Cleanance Expert emulzija nezamjenjiva.

      Cleanance Expert emulziju sam potrosila cijelu tubu i ona mi je blaza, kremastija i suhoj/dehidriranoj kozi njeznija verzija LRP Effaclar Dua. Odlican, odlican proizvod! Ima recenzija na blogu dok su mi i Thayers i Alverde bas vrhunski!
      Olival kremicu si fantasticno opisala, budem bacila oko 😉

    Alverde umivalica je odlična.
    Mada me već dva mjeseca kopka ovo Avon ulje za lice.Sve se dvoumim da li da ga kupim ili ne,malo me nečka to sto kako sam čula u sastavu ima silikona.

    • Septembar 9, 2016 / 9:56 am

      Iskreno, nisam bacila pogled na sastav ali po osjecaju na kozi – moguce da sadrzi silikone.

      Ovo mi je ulje dobro, lijepo mi koza na njega djeluje ali uvijek cu najprije preporuciti cisto 100% ulje sipka – sa njim jednostavno nema greske!
