BeautyHack Editor Yulia Kozoliy spoke about her favorite moisturizing treatments for mixed skin types and recommended a light tonal fluid from a vacation cosmetic bag.
It turned out that BeautyHack editors can easily go on vacation with one shared makeup bag! We love some of the tools as a team! For example, Nuxe oils or Weleda deodorants (my colleague Natasha has already talked about them). In my makeup bag - face masks (I love!), The best eyebrow gel and the lightest foundation for evening prom.
Moisturizing cream care Sisu, Lumene
After Lumene underwent a rebranding, I increasingly linger at stands with funds. First, the neat design wins over, and secondly, the absence of failed products.
Sisu was originally invented for the city (the second name is "urban antidote"), but after testing the remedy in May, I realized that I would postpone it until the holidays. Because this is a two-in-one cream: you can apply it in the morning and in the evening (which, you see, saves space in the vacation cosmetic bag). And it also has the lightest texture, something in between mousse and jelly - a guarantee that the cream does not lay down with a film and moisturizes great!
Price: 2380 rub.
Moisturizing soothing mask Hydraphase Intense Masque, La Roche-Posay
I will use a gel mask after a day in the sun to moisturize dry skin. The product can be removed without rinsing, but with a cotton pad. But I love the feeling of hyper-cleanliness on my skin, so I wash my face afterwards. The result is still excellent: the skin is matte and even, but at the same time hydrated, there is no redness.
Price: 1437 rub.
Thermal water Eau Thermale, Avène
I will take on vacation a 300 ml bottle of thermal water and generously water it for the whole family! I recently returned from a press tour of the brand, where I saw with my own eyes how the legendary remedy is made. The only factory that produces water is located directly above the thermal spring in the town of Avène. Through a stainless steel water pipeline, water is delivered to production from a depth of 160 meters and is packaged in aerosols in a sterile workshop. Therefore, I will boldly spray it on the skin of my 5-year-old daughter after sunburn and during flights.
Price: 502 rub. (300 ml)
Black Sugar Perfect Mousse Foam, Skin Food
A funny novelty from Skin Food, which can be grabbed in mousse format this summer, the brand has released a limited edition. This is a cleanser that looks like shaving foam. Apply to skin and massage for 2 minutes until completely absorbed, then rinse off the mousse with water. It solves several tasks at once: removes makeup, moisturizes, very delicately exfoliates dead skin particles, mattifies. One of the main components is black sugar extract, so the mousse is slightly crunchy and sticky to the touch, but it is absorbed into the skin quickly, without feeling tight!
If you don't find the product in the mousse format, I recommend Black Sugar Perfect Bubble Foam as an alternative. They are almost identical.
Price: about 1270 rubles.
Moisturizing lotion Facial Moisturizing Lotion, CeraVe
I drew attention to the brand on the recommendation of Adel Miftakhova. CeraVe is a reminder not to underestimate mass market media. The lotion resembles a very light cream that moisturizes, evens out the tone and, in principle, at any time of the year it will be an excellent base for foundation or even BB cream. I will take it with me on vacation to moisturize my skin before a light evening make-up. Among the components of the lotion are ceramides, which are responsible for the integrity of the skin's lipid barrier. By the way, this is the main feature of the brand: in the composition of all products - a complex of three important ceramides.
Price: 1130 rub.
Ultra cream Anthelios Creme Sans Parfumes SPF 50+, La Roche Posay
The cream is not suitable for the city: high SPF and the texture is too dense for daily use.
But on vacation it will definitely come in handy: a small format, it can be applied to the body, face and even the skin around the eyes.
The cream does not leave stains on whites, is well distributed and fragrance-free. And also, after application, there is no oily sheen on the skin. But it will work if you have normal to dry skin. For girls with oily skin, the product will not work.
Price: 1 410 rub.
Tonal fluid Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation SPF 20, Shiseido
I have been using the fluid for a month now and I dream of lasting on vacation, because it is simply made for summer makeup! Very lightweight with a fluid texture and a luminous finish. The glow is vaguely reminiscent of the moderate Jym Skin. I'm not sure if girls with oily skin will appreciate it, but mine, the mixed type, is made for such a shine! The product has 9 shades, I have Neutral 3 (perfectly neutral!).
An important point: Synchro Skin Glow will not hide the rash. Its maximum is equalization and highlighting of the skin (but it can be layered to hide pigmentation, for example). Therefore, if you need to eliminate imperfections, use a concealer and corrector.
Price: 3555 rub.
Concealer Effacernes Long Tenue SPF 30, Lancome
A fighter of the invisible front who has been wandering from one cosmetic bag to another for two years (yes, it will last for a long time even with constant use). I love it for its equally excellent matting of bruises under the eyes and small rashes, mousse texture and ease of application (I just drive in the product with my fingertips). I do not hope that the sea, sun and beach will heal bruises and minor redness, so I will use it for light evening make-up.
Price: 3034 RUB.
Mascara Sexy Eyebrow Mascara, Romanovamakeup
I love Olga Romanova and her thoughtful and simple approach to makeup! I use eyebrow gel even on weekends, when I do not apply the tone. Immediately makes the face more expressive, leaving the eyebrows natural: after application, there is no need to adjust the color or apply a transparent gel for fixing. I have Taupe for brunettes.
Price: 989 rub.
Tint-lip balm Pink Ghost #Realmagic 006 Presto, Soda
This tool has only one drawback - an inconvenient polyhedron shape, due to which the balm can break. But for the sake of a fantastic natural effect on the lips I am ready to endure endlessly! It is said that the balm reacts to the pH of the skin and magically appears on the lips with an individual tint. In my case, it is soft pink with a slight damp shine. The durability of the product is the same as that of the tint: you can eat and drink - then you just correct the contour.
Price: 269 rub.
Liquid highlighter High Beam, Benefit
Bestseller of the brand and my personal favorite! I use it every day and take it with me on vacation. Another very economical product that can be difficult to overdo. Select the protruding parts of the face with a highlighter brush and get a healthy glow, which, of course, will not be seen from space, but on vacation they will be interested in its origin!
Price: 2190 rub.
Gold oil for face, body and hair Huile Prodigieuse OR, Nuxe
The sparkling particles make the use of oil a holiday! I will apply it on tanned skin from head to toe! The product is not greasy or sticky, it is quickly absorbed and leaves a beautiful shimmer.
Plus, there's nothing more beautiful than displaying this handsome man in a hotel bathroom and turning oil application into a spa ritual!
Price: 2375 rub. (50 ml)
