In a sea of products, one can’t help but feel like drowning in options. This is especially true as the summer sun sheds light on more launches. It’s a time to experiment!
But it can also be a time to strip down to the basics. Since summer offers so many possibilities such as vacations at the beach or hiking adventures. Even yacht parties. Speaking of which, I joined Watsons for their Love the Sun 2020 summer party last week. Featuring a few of their chosen influencers and beloved products, we took a two-hour ride down Manila Bay. It’s something you must do so you can feel like a tourist in your own country. You’ll see the city in a different and romantic light.
In between the waves, I caught up with Aryanna Epperson. The 1-minute vlogger and VJ is always up to trying new stuff on her social media. She’s also the type to find herself in various situations this season.
The question I had for her was obvious: What the products she’d need throughout the summer to get by? Here’s her 10-part answer.
#1 Biore UV Perfect Spray
“We cannot forget that sunscreen. Obviously, we have to protect our skin first. I like a sunscreen mist it’s easy to apply all over your body.”
#2 Fresh Jeju Aloe Face & Body Mist
“I like to keep myself cool throughout the summer with a facial mist. I’m so addicted to them. Wherever I go, I bring them and I finish them so fast.”
#3 L’Oreal Smooth Intense 1 Minute Caring Mask
“We forget that the sun also dries out our hair. So we need to replenish it. Do it every week or three to four days so your hair is soft and protected.”
#4 BLK K-Beauty Scents: Summer
“I love a light and fresh scent or body mist. I like the idea of having a scent for every different season.”
#5 St. Ives Aloe Vera Hydrating Facial Cleansing Wipes
“I like something that’s multi-purpose when it comes to wipes. Something you can use to remove makeup, give your hands a quick cleanse, and also just to refresh your face if you’re makeup-free.”
# 6 Happy Skin Kiss & Bloom Water Lip & Cheek Tint in Fearless
“My go-to is always a lip tint. It’s something you can use even on the eyes. You can take it anywhere.”
#7 Careline Multi-Stick: Strobe Stick
“Summer is the time for highlighter. This one from Careline is poppin’. It’s a Holy Grail product for me.”
#8 Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara
“If I’m not wearing anything on my face, I at least have mascara. I can’t go anywhere without it. This is the best one that’s waterproof. It’s pigmented and stays on even when you get sweaty. It fans out the lashes well.”
#9 Belo SunExpert Tinted Sunscreen
“This is my favorite because it has SPF 50 and it also evens out your skin tone. You can still look good and protect your face.”
#10 Luxe Organix Aloe Vera Gel
“Something needed to relieve the skin after sun exposure even if you don’t go to the beach. It also works as a body moisturizer. “
