Lightweight Summer Base

Summer is here and that means more makeup-free days. I don’t know about you but the hotter the weather is the less I care about wearing any makeup. Okay, maybe a bit of an exaggeration more like wearing less makeup. I don’t do well in the heat, don’t get me started with that uncomfortable sweaty feeling. That’s why I usually opt for a product that has a lightweight coverage like a BB Cream. Here is my Lightweight Summer Base go to’s.

As mentioned, I am not a lover of Summer, feeling sticky and uncomfortable is not my idea of fun. Not to mention my makeup melting off my face doesn’t help. I have been reaching mostly for these two lightweight bases to give me a tint of colour to even out my skin.

Garnier Skin Naturals BB Cream

Garnier Skin Naturals BB Cream Original combines Vitamin C with mineral pigments to unify your complexion for radiant, flawless and natural-looking skin. It gets to work immediately, offering 24-hours moisturisation, comfort UV protection and covers signs of fatigue, dullness, lines, and imperfections.

I have been using this BB Cream for years, it’s a great way to add some colour to the skin without actually wearing a heavy foundation.

Lancome Skin Feels Good Hydrating Skin Tint

The Lancome Skin Feels Good Hydrating Skin Tint is a lightweight foundation. That is enriched with skin-loving ingredients such as vegetal glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and Moringa tree extracts to actively improve and protect your skin.

Its flawless sheer coverage helps to provide a healthy and radiant looking complexion, while its fresh water-made texture hydrates your skin.

One of the most luxurious products I own and honestly what more can you expect from a brand like Lancome. This Hydrating Skin Tint is essential for anyone suffering from dry skin like me. Even during blazing hot Summer’s my skin is constantly dry and soaks up moisturising like a dry sponge.

These are the two products I am currently using, however, honorable mention will also be the LA Girl HD Pro BB Cream, which I need to restock. It’s one of my favourites of all time and super affordable too!

    The Garnier BB cream is such a classic and one I’ve used and loved for years. It’s such a fab product for a bargain price too xx

    The Skin Tint has been in my list to buy since forever but I am stopping myself from buying new base products for now because I have so much to finish.

      I know what you mean, I always go for these ones so constantly rebuying.

    I love BB creams – while I wear makeup to the office, if I’m at home with the kids it’s BB cream or nothing. I like the sound of the Lancome one! I’d tried the garnier in the past but it wasn’t right for my skin.

    Hope that you had a great weekend 🙂 We had a relaxing one, we went to the beach and spent time with family 🙂
