Summer Essentials: Peach and Citrus

Written by Yasmine Mubarak by Elva Ahlbin

This summer has been about nourishing our skin, becoming more comfortable with a pop of color and learning new things to add that special flair to our day. Such as focusing on quality time with a good book in the park, and listening to a great podcast in our headphones. A podcast that not only keeps us company, but we learn new things from. So in our bag inspired by these elements, we have created a flair of citrus and peach.

When summer starts, we can feel the upcoming scent of flowers, the ocean and the calmness of the green flourishing around us. The latest fragrance from Louis Vuitton, is the perfume On the Beach. A careful blend by Master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, with citrus Yuzu from Japan. Blended with thyme, rosemary, pink pepper and aromatic herbs. A mystique yet summer scent that works for both summer and fall. The perfume can later be refilled in stores equipped with a perfume fountain.

To achieve that summer glow, the Sensai Bronzing Gel is a smooth and luxurious gel bronzer in three shades to either apply evenly on your face as a primer or use as a contour application where you wish to be sunkissed.

Following the summer flair in makeup - a recent new discovery from Glossier, is their Skywash - a matte eyeshadow available in 7 shades, from cornflower blue to warm peach. It’s a great product for an easy application for us who don’t always use eyeshadow, but wish to spice it up during the summer. It’s truly a simple yet powerful tool for that pop of color which is a huge 2021 trend.

For our lips, the classic and loved Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector is year after year a go-to for people all over the world - and 2021 is no exception. With the classic sweet scent it gives your lips that plump and glow you need to begin your day or add shine throughout the day.

With all of the bronzers, and sunscreen we use, cleansing is key. During the summer with vaccations we need something simple yet effective - that’s why we cleanse away the day with the NUXE Very Rose 3-in-1 Soothing Micellar Water. Designed to cleanse, moisturise and soften in one simple step. Infused with soothing rose water, the cleanser helps to minimise the risk of skin irritation.
A tweezer in the bag is almost mandatory, never knowing when you will need it. The much stylish and most important powerful Tweezerman Mini Slant Pink Lemonade is not only the perfect size to carry in your bag (you even get a small package to protect it when carried) it’s also stylish with a pink citrus design.

Last but not least in our essential bag and mind this summer have been the Gisou Propolis Infused Polishing Primer, a lightweight styling primer that prepares hair for styling. It prevents and diminishes frizz, and ensures optimal workable hold. However, be aware the primer doesn't protect against heat, it’s only a primer for later use with example heat protection. It has a light smell that doesn't interfere and is a good summer product for your hair to hold during the entire day and night.
