Summer time fine

With summer in full swing over here in South Africa, I find my beauty regimen becoming less and less complicated. Along with the effortless feeling of summer, the balmy days call for products that work twice as hard. Essence must have somehow gotten the memo. I found three products recently that tick all the boxes for me. Let's dive in.

*Essence Fresh&Fit Awake Primer

Now, I have used other primers before but, nothing quite like this. It gives you this beautiful luminous look when you apply it. I love wearing it without my foundation on a day off. Even with my foundation, it's non greasy with a matte finish. This was certainly one of those purchases I made on a whim but, I'm definitely going to repurchase. It's an effortless way to look beautiful and healthy without putting too much effort in. This retails for R79,99 for a 30ml.

*Essence Metal Chrome Blush

If it's gorgeous, summer, lit-from-within glow you are looking for this is the product for you. It's like the normal blush but, with an instant cool factor. The fabulous cousin of blush if you will. Application is really easy and the formula is perfect for either a subtle shimmer or a megawatt glow. This retails for R64,95 and is another item I'm definitely going to repurchase.

*Essence Instant Matte Make-Up Setting Spray

You ever look at yourself halfway through the day and realize your face looks like you could fry an egg on it?This one was an absolute winner for me. The last thing anyone needs is foundation or concealer sliding down their cheeks in the middle of day. This make up setting spray contains "evermatt" and is lightweight and non sticky. I love that you can immediately see the difference after applying it. You can use it as a primer as well. This retails for R64,95 for 50ml. It's safe to say this is a summer essential for me.

That's it for today. What are some of your summer must haves? Have you used any of these products?  I'd love to hear your opinion on it.
