8 Summer Products That ELLE’s Beauty Editor Loves

Tried and tested by the Beauty Editor

Summer has arrived, and it’s time to switch your skincare routine to match the sweltering climate. Layering can weigh down the skin, and heavy makeup can add to the stickiness. I have tried a bunch of products this month that are apt for hot, humid days. From lightweight moisturisers to volumising hair products, here are some cool products for the hot months ahead.

 

1. L’Occitane Volume & Strength Shampoo and Conditioner

If you have thin hair that falls flat, reach for this range. It’s packed with essentials oils like rosemary, lemon, juniper, cedar and ylang-ylang, which nourishes the scalp. The shampoo gently removes the grime and gunk, making hair feel thicker and voluminous. Also, the aromatic smell turns the bathroom into a spa.

 

2. M.A.C Powder Kiss Liquid Lipcolour

 

Matte lipsticks have a reputation for seriously drying out lips, but this one glides on like butter and feels lightweight and soft on the lips. On the downside, it doesn’t last as long as a regular matte lipstick but leaves behind a pretty stain.

 

3. Re’equil Sheer Zinc Tinted Sunscreen


This broad-spectrum sunscreen offers UVA, UVB and IR protection without any white cast. It’s ideal for hot summer days when you don’t want to layer your moisturiser, sunscreen and foundation. The tinted formula works on all skin tones and evens out the skin. It has a matte finish that works well for oily skin.

 

4. Forest Essentials Cheek Tint

 


Give your cheeks a natural flush with this new cheek tint which comes in two shades—pink and terracotta. The mousse-like texture blends into the skin with ease and gives a soft glow to the skin. It’s enriched with almond oil and natural pigments like beetroot.

 

5. Laneige Lip Glowy Balm

One of the best lip balms in the market, this one offers supple and moisturised lips and is packed with nourishing ingredients such as shea butter, candelilla wax and murumuru butter. It has a glossy shine minus the stickiness of a lip gloss. Wear it by itself or layer it under or over your lipstick.

 

6. SUGAR Eye Lit You So! Vivid Eyeliner

One of the coolest summer products, these eyeliners instantly add a pop of colour to your look. You can bring out your creative, fun side by going crazy with the bright shades. From graphic eye makeup to dual-tone eyeliner—there are endless looks you can create with his one. However, they don’t come off easily, and you have to really rub to get it all out.

 

7. D’you Hustle

If there’s one product you need to buy this summer, it’s this baby. Layering too many products during this time of the year can make the skin feel heavy and oily. This little bottle is packed with 11 active ingredients that protect, repairs and brightens skin. You can use it as a toner, serum, or essence. It penetrates into the skin easily and leaves you with a healthy glow.

 

8. Glutaweis Glutathione Radiance Cleanser

Glutathione is gaining a lot of attention in skincare. And this is a good product to start with if you want to jump onto the wagon. This face wash is gentle on the skin and removes grime and sweat without drying skin. It comes with an in-built brush for days when you want to scrub off the dead skin cells.
