Not I know about you, but for two months I have been mentally walking along the sea coast in a light sundress and pink sandals. And yesterday I wiped the dust from my red suitcase and thought carefully about what I would put there when I flew on vacation. I tell you what beauty products have been traveling with me for several years.
Correction fluid Dermablend SPF 35, Vichy
If you are looking for a level 90 concealer, here is Vichy’s Corrective Fluid. The black stylish tube hides a real “thunderstorm” of skin irregularities and age spots. The cream has good overlapping power, but it does not leave a multi-layered feel – as light as a feather. The tool is persistent – it will “survive” even a run. The composition contains thermal water that nourishes and moisturizes the skin – I love it when makeup can be combined with care (for facts about thermal water, read
Price: 2 500 rubles.
Eau de toilette Be Delicious Flower Pop, DKNY
The history of Be Delicious began almost 15 years ago, when perfumer Maurice Rochelle released his first famous “apple”. Many had love with him from the first breath. Freshness of cucumber and green apple with woody and floral notes in the base – the scent is recognizable from the first seconds. A few years later, the Be Delicious line was expanded with other novelties: Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Eau So Intense, City Brooklyn Girl, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious. And this year, there was a replenishment in the “family” of the legendary fragrance: a purple “apple” appeared on store shelves in 2018.
This fruity and summer perfume is ideal for summer terraces, cotton dresses and sea sunsets. Plum, nectarine and mandarin in the top notes, jasmine and apricot in the middle, sandalwood, amber and musk in the base notes. Opening one after another, they create around you a sweetish, barely perceptible cloud of purple “happiness”.
Price: 4 299 rub.
Shea Facial Spray Toner, L‘occitane
L’Occitane – how much in this word: the aromas of French Provence, the freshness of alpine herbs and the life-giving power of fruits. With this brand, I have not yet had a single beauty slip – all caused puppy delight and a joyful squeak. The spray was no exception. It is versatile: it can be used instead of micellar water, tonic or thermal water – the “multipurpose” one! The product moisturizes, cleanses and nourishes. Unlike classic micellar, it does not need to be washed off. Among the ingredients you will not find alcohol and other ingredients that dry the skin – a big plus. I use it twice a day, wiping my face with a cotton pad.
Price: 1 700 rub.
Intensive revitalizing hair mask Penetraitt Treatment, Sebastian Professionnal
Every editor has their own beauty weaknesses. I have hair masks. Tasting, sniffing, mixing and searching for special ingredients that turn fine, unruly hair into satin is what I love. Founded in the early 70s by talented Los Angeles stylists, we have a special relationship with Sebastian. It allows me to preserve the length of my discolored strands, I adore it dearly and test all new items maniacally. The revitalizing mask works great on damaged ends by smoothing the cuticles. For this, a deep nod to jojoba oil, rice bran and silk proteins. By the way, about the latter. Protein is embedded under the scales, increasing hair density. They look healthier. The mask has a thick consistency and a pleasant aroma – no aggressive fragrances (hypersensitive noses will be appreciated). Usually three minutes is enough to make the strands shine and iridescent. When I have time, I hold the mask for 40-50 minutes, warming and heating the hair with a hairdryer. The effect is like after salon care.

Satin face balm Phytobiotech Satin Balm, Method Cholley
I’m the most dedicated Method Cholley fan. Everything is great for this Swiss brand: oils, fluids, and serums. By the way, about the latter. When you are over thirty, they simply have to be in the care arsenal – they have a higher concentration of active ingredients that fight for the health and beauty of the skin than in conventional creams. Phytobiotech balm is my great and unconditional love. It can be used in the morning and in the evening, on the beach and after the pool – both in the world and in the feast. The main function is to improve the complexion and eliminate microcracks (the gate of infection through which pathogens can penetrate). I have oily skin prone to breakouts, which often has pigmentation after acne. Phytobiotech made them almost invisible – hurray hurray!
The balm has a light, satin texture – as delicate as good bedding. The product is quickly absorbed and easily replaces the makeup base.
Price: 7 650 rub.
