When the weather warms up, you really need to change your Summer beauty skincare and makeup. This (rather long) beauty review of cleansers, masks, makeup, skincare, and more will get you through no matter what the weather brings. Here’s why you need these products for Summer beauty now more than ever. Check out my review of must-have products from blinc, My Chelle, SooAE, and Mason + Grove Farm.
SooAE Black Charcoal Peel-Off Mask + Cleanser:
If you have impurities or breakouts, the purifying benefits of black charcoal and witch hazel can improve your skin almost instantly. SooAE’s K-beauty black charcoal peel-off mask and multi-tasking Black Charcoal Cleanser offer a lot of instant results. The mask has SooAE’s signature blend of botanical extracts (including Aloe, Grapefruit, Licorice root, Orange, Tea tree, and Honeysuckle flower). Apply the mask and let it dry (it takes about 15 minutes). Then peel it off along with impurities and other things you don’t want on your skin. See your pores get smaller! Peel-off masks are fun and so rewarding!
Black Charcoal Double Bubble Cleanser:
I love a multi-tasker and this one checks the boxes, especially for Summer Beauty. It has charcoal and rosemary extracts. Use it as a deeply purifying mask and cleanser in one! The gel textured formula creates a lather of microbubbles that gently yet effectively remove makeup, dirt, and other impurities. As a cleanser apply it to dry skin and let the bubbles do the work, Massage it in a circular motion to remove makeup and other stuff you don’t want on your skin. Then rinse it off. As a mask, start the same way as the cleanser but repeat the process 2-3 times. In my test, I found that it made my skin look clearer and fresher. *tip don’t let this stay on your skin for longer than 3 minutes. A little goes a long way.
You will see a light blue silicone pad in my photo above as well. It’s a mini facial brush with soft bristles and a little handle. You can use this with other products as well as the ones from Soo AE/ I am taking it on my next trip, too. For more information visit the SooAE website.
Must Have Summer Beauty: MyChelle SPF, Est Belle:
I first found MyChelle at an event in New York City. I’ve been impressed with the products ever since. Now that warmer weather and more hours of sunshine are arriving, it’s more important than ever to wear SPF of 30 or above on a daily basis.
I adore the My Chelle Natural Mineral Protect Sun Shield Liquid SPF 50 with SPF 50 (active is 20% zinc oxide). There is more protection from Bentonite Clay. Even better, all the MyChelle products are made without parabens, petroleum, phthalates, silicones, sulfates, ureas, artificial fragrances, or artificial colors. Detoxifying benefits from bentonite clay and smoothing from safflower plus anti-inflammatory agave leaf make this tinted sun shield a Summer Beauty product full of skin-loving benefits.
I tried the Light Medium but I think I could have gotten away with the Light and certainly the Untinted versions. They are that matte and sheer. While the tint blurred some imperfections, you can still wear this under a foundation without any trouble at all if you wanted a lot more coverage.
BLINC Mascara is Totally Tubular:
Unlike the older types of volumizing mascaras that made a mess when you tried to apply the little tubes or flecks onto your lashes, this mascara magically forms water-resistant “tubes” around your lashes. No additional steps are needed. Therefore, once applied (to clean dry lashes), the tiny tubes bind to your lashes and can’t run, smudge, clump, or flake, even if you sweat, cry, rub your eyes or have oily skin.
Those with sensitive eyes will be happy to know that blinc mascara has been tested to be non-irritating. The Original is ideal for sensitive eyes, contact lens wearers, and active people who want an easy-to-remove mascara that won’t fail them. The black or brown mascara resists humidity, sweat, and tears. You remove it with a damp washcloth. Don’t forget, makeup removers won’t work so just use water and a gentle scrub to get those tubes off your lashes.
I didn’t try the blinc eyeliner I was sent, because I can’t see well enough to put it on correctly and test it. But the press info says that blinc’s Liquid Eyeliner forms an ultra-long-wearing, jet black layer of color, that cannot fade, smudge, run or flake. The formula is based on blinc’s pioneering tubing technology. The elongated handle gives you ultimate application control, and the precise brush tip allows you to create anything from thin lines to dramatic bold cat eyes. You peel it off without the need for makeup remover, Sounds good!
blinc Rare Gems For Your Eyes
The blinc Rare Gem eye shadow palette is another gorgeous must-have for Summer. The earthy tones include a dozen gemstone-inspired colors from the lightest “Howlite” and three others on the top, to the deepest “orgonite” on the bottom. All are highly pigmented in matte, Perle, and metallic. Your biggest decision will be which ones to use first!
The moment after I took this photo I dropped this gorgeous palette and “Rose Quartz” the pretty rose on the top right broke into a million pieces. It’s not the fault of blinc. Therefore it reminded me (and you) to be careful when handling your powder eye shadows! The case is so slim, elegant, and shiny you can see yourself on the top. But there’s also a big interior mirror. At $45 it’s under $4 per nice-sized shadow. For more information on blinc’s lovely products visit https://www.blincinc.com/
