Too cool for school.
I have such a love-hate relationship with summer. While I love the flowers, fashion, and freedom that comes with the sultry season, I’m not a fan of the heat and humidity on those extra-hot days. That’s why I a huge fan of using cooling products during the summer months. They give me an almost immediate relief from the high temps and my skin looks so good, I can skip a few steps in my makeup routine. Here’s what I’ve been using lately.
A splash of cold water will help cool me down, but this Boscia cleanser is next level. It has a thin gel texture and immediately cools the skin when I apply it with water. If I were to make a comparison, it’s a similar sensation to chewing a piece of gum or popping a breath mint in your mouth.
Gel Eye Patches
I love an eye mask and these cooling skyn ICELAND eye patches are probably my favourite. They not only help cool but also depuff the under eye area, making them perfect for first thing in the morning. Also, I found that they don’t move around as much as other eye masks I’ve tried, so I don’t have to constantly readjust them while they’re working their magic. I would normally follow up with a sheet mask and use a jade roller over to give myself a little facial massage.
Face and body moisturizers
While it’s technically not a cooling product, I just really love this Boscia moisturizer because the texture is amazing. It has a bouncy mousse cream that feels amazing when I apply it. Plus it’s packed with antioxidants that help protect my skin barrier during the day. I usually keep it in my mini fridge with this body yogurt from The Body Shop so they feel even cooler when I use them.
Here’s the reel of the products in action:
