The ultimate summer beauty list while vacationing in Greece
Let’s talk about summer beauty. Do you follow an extended beauty routine during summer holidays or prefer to limit your beauty steps to 1-2 basic products?
I happen to belong to the first category maybe because under normal circumstances, I don’t have the time for the long version of a beauty treatment. It is a vital goal, though, and so, during vacations, I turn into a meticulous beauty therapist of myself.
This is the beauty kit I took with me to Eagles Villas. The floral clutch is by the greek brand Sun of A Beach. Real
Some of my summer beauty essentials include:
Greek Mountain Tea Face Water by Apivita
Face Waters are always essential under the Greek sun. You have to always carry one during trips, when you are out for a walk and of course on the beach. This product by the well-known Greek brand Apivita is a new addiction of mine. Greek mountain tea face water comes from Apivita organic crops on mountain Olympus and moisturizes, protecting at the same time the skin against premature ageing. I adore its sense of freshness, too!
Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert by Clarins
Vacation time is also the right time to concentrate on body issues. This is a product I trust a lot because I have been using it for the last months with very good results. The Body Fit treatment is designed in response to the latest discovery of the Clarins Research Center, according to which three different types of cells are responsible for formation of excess fatty tissue and cellulite. The Body Fit is the only anti-cellulite product that targets three different types of fat cells and optimizes their function to prevent and reduce the formation of cellulite, tighten the skin, and make it appear smoother and even.
Refreshing After-Sun Lotion by Nuxe
What do I expect from my after sun product? A super moisturising formula that enhances and prolongs tanning, an easy to apply, absorbable texture and an exciting summery fragrance that can create lasting memories. Nuxe Sun Refreshing After-Sun Lotion for Face and Body has it all. Its formula, enriched with sun and water flowers, also repairs and soothes the skin after the sun exposure. It promises to prolong tanning by two weeks. For the moment, I can say that I am in love with the smell!
Lumiere Essentielle Serum by Darphin
This is my “I woke up to this” product. First step in my face care. I find its crystalline texture and its heavenly smell invigorating and refreshing. It is based on essential oils, same as all Darphin products and offers the best awakening for the skin! A mix from Tangerine, Orange, Neroli, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Cedarwood and Ginger essential oils and an innovative technology that activates them with each pump illuminates the skin at an instant.
Monoi Oil SPF 6 by Hei Poa
As a girl obsessed with exotic summery fragrances, I cannot leave for a vacation destination without this iconic product in my beauty case! I am talking about the famous multipurpose Monoi oil by Hei Poa which can be also used as suntan oil after your first days under the sun. It owes its divine smell to the Tiaré flower which is the emblematic flower of Polynesia. It is recognized for its moisturizing, nourishing and restorative properties and can be used to take care and to perfume body and hair.

Aura Mirabilis Beauty Vinegar By Roger & Gallet
What is a Beauty Vinegar? And why do I need this new cosmetic product? These were my thoughts when I first received a product to try and test. I smelled it and it felt so nice (and really far from actual vinegar) that I was instantly convinced to include it in my daily routine! Then I did some research. And here is what I found out: The use of facial cleansing vinegars made from flowers, fruits or spices appears around the 18th century. Expertly prepared by Master Distillers, they become a legendary treatment for cleansing and preserving the skin’s complexion. Roger&Gallet was inspired by vinegar-based formulas, known for their refreshing and purifying properties to create a new daily skincare. There are some weeks now that I have been using Roger & Gallet Aura Mirabilis Beauty Vinegar as a toner and I have come to love the way it removes makeup residue, soothes the skin and helps eliminate dead cells. It also refinesskin texture and tightens pores. Definitely in the vacation beauty case!
Mineral 89 by Vichy
This is something much needed during summer. Mineral 89 is a booster designed to improve skin’s health, leaving it more beautiful with each passing day due to a unique formula. See all about this amazing and innovative face product that was just launched here.
+ something for hair!
Elixir Ultime Oil by Kérastase
Iconic and loved by lots of women around the world. This is a must all year long for me and a super sos product for my holiday hair! Enriched with a unique blend of precious oils, including argan oil and maize, the Elixir Ultime is suitable for all hair types and deeply nourishes, controlling the look of frizz whilst boosting shine and reducing the appearance of split ends. I use it either pre or post blow dry, and throughout the day for a nourishing pick-me-up. Call it Hair Perfection, no matter what and mostly no matter where!
