Today I’m going to share some light, fresh products that are perfect for the summer. How about melon, aloe vera and cooling cucumber!
Hi guys, how are you enjoying the summer so far? Have you had a swim or an ice cream yet? Well I have, let me tell you. And between the beach and the grill my daughter is always catching butterflies wherever we go. In the summer, many people find that their skin looks and feels healthier than in the winter. But it’s still important to continue to use good skin care products and to protect the skin. Skin care in the summer is all about sun protection SPF and hydration in my opionion.
Today I’ll share my own personal summer favorites from Korea from the summer of 2019. Light weight, cooling and hydrating Korean skin care products, suitable for most skin types. I hope you’ll get inspired…
Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb
The perfect summer fresh face cream in my opinion! Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb is a Korean classic and one of Belif’s most popular products. An incredibly refreshing and light gel cream that is really hydrating the skin. Good absorption and this cream is packed with moisture even though the texture is light. A nice and cooling relief and the perfect hydration for hot and sweaty summer days. Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb also has this lovely turquoise color that just breathes holiday and the sea. I just love it! This gel cream has a delicious “clean” scent towards citrus. Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb is very nice and highly recommended by me. Especially for normal, combination and oily skin types.

Missha All-around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk SPF50 PA+++
A favourite that I first discovered through Bonnybonny.se a couple of years ago. This product can be used alone as a light, quick and handy day cream and sunscreen all in one, with everything your skin needs for the daytime. Or simply apply it over your regular skin care as the last step in your morning routine. Missha All-around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk SPF50 PA+++ provides high sun protection and hydration in one simple step without being greasy. This sun milk feels light and moisturizing and leaves no white oily cast on the skin. The texture is much like an airy and moist lotion and does not at all feel heavy or thick on the skin. Nice skin care / sun cream type scent and good absorption. And the bottle is very nice looking with its golden details. Missha All-around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk SPF50 PA+++ is suitable for most skin types except perhaps very oily skin. Well, I think this is a really nice one!

A’pieu Slice Sheet Mask
OMG is there anything more summery than colorful mini sheet masks looking like lovely watermelon or cucumber slices? I really do prefer full size sheet masks for maximum hydration, but these slice masks are just too cute and summery I feel. With a couple of fun slices of melon and cucumber on your face and a freshly made juice in your hand, the holiday will be great regardless. It’s an Instagram moment for sure. Nice lovely scent, refreshing and hydrating holiday fun. You can also share these mini masks with loved ones relaxing by the pool! Apply as many slice masks as you need to deeply hydrate the skin. Leave them on your skin for 10 minutes. Do not rinse your face after use. Don’t forget to take a couple of dreamy snap shots for the perfect summer photos of 2019.

Too Cool For School Coconut Sheet Masks
Last but not least, these wonderfully fresh and deeply hydrating sheet masks are perfect for the summer as well. What beats Too Cool For School’s lovely Coconut Sheet Mask line just oozing summer and holiday. I actually got these sent to me by a lovely reader named Caroline thank you Caroline! Absolutely wonderful fresh coconut scent. And both of these sheet masks are really great in my opinion. Too Cool For School Coconut Milk Cream Mask is a deeply caring, moisturizing and nourishing mask with lovely milky essence similar to a lotion. The material of the sheet mask is properly thick and resembles a knitted fabric. Too Cool For School Coconut Ceramide Mask is all about new radiance, brightening and refreshing the skin and targeting wrinkles and signs of aging. A thin sheet mask packed with translucent light flowing liquid essence. Both of these sheet masks with the key ingredient coconut extract are highly recommended by me, and they will take your summer holiday to the next level, just lovely!

For me, I like summer products to be moist and light, and preferably have a sunny summery scent of watermelon or delicious coconut.
Do you have any “must have” products during the summer? Do you prefer unscented skin care or classic summer scents like coconut, pineapple or melon? Do you change your skin care routine during the summer to lighter, thinner products, or do you use the same products all year round?
