DIY Rose Water Body Mist

Rose Water is very beneficial for the skin and is used in various kinds of creams and face masks. It helps in the purification and cleansing of skin.
Today I like to show you how to make the rose water spray yourself. Rose Water is one of my favorite skin care products, because of its soothing effects on my skin and its fresh scent.

Recipe for rose water body mist:
1 cup of rose water
1 cup of distilled water
A spray bottle

Pour the ingredients into the bottle and shake well. You can use this spray anytime as a refreshing, skin nourishing spray.

My Summer Essentials

I like to share with you my Summertime Beauty Essentials. These are some of my favorite products:
 
Balea Water Spray is a must have, all summer long! Super cool hydrating mist, helps to keep you cool whenever you need it! I keep this in my bag all the time.
Scholl Feet Balsam Papaya hydrates, softens and protects feet. 
It´s a smooth white cream and has a fruity scent. This lotion has a thinner consistency than many intensive formulas, but it does a great job of moisturizing dry feet.
Fa Floral Protect - I think this is an obvious everyday essential. I like its floral scents. It’s a must have!
Catrice Ultimate Color Pinkadilly Circus 210 is the most gorgeous bright fuchsia pink I’ve seen and I’ve been wearing it non-stop for the past month! It is also super creamy and moisturizing and super pigmented as well!
What is summer without bright nails. My favorite nail polish this season is P2 Color Victim 041 Blushing Bride. It is such a gorgeous pinkish orangey coral.
Balea Cleansing Mask deeply cleanses and moisturises the skin, it leaves the skin feeling clean, smooth and balanced.
Balea Mango Mambo Body Mist has a fruity mango smell. Body mists are the perfect way to cool down during the hot, humid days!
Garnier Ambre Solaire Dry Protect is one of my favorites because it goes on so light and dries quickly so you aren’t left with that greasy feeling and look.

"No Makeup" Makeup

I start with a good makeup base, I use Agnès b. Liss’Velours Smoothing & Fixing Makeup Base which is a mattifying makeup primer, then I dab on a thin layer of Garnier BB Cream to even out the skin ton and keep it fresh and hydrated. Another product I use is the Maybelline Instant Anti Age Dark Spot Eraser, the creamy concealer is perfect for hiding dark circles with it's medium pigmented formula that blends in effortlessly to leave a natural skin finish.

Cream blush has been in my summer makeup for a very long time. I use the P2 Cheeks & Lips Cream Blush, this shade adds a slight pop of colour. For the lips it´s the perfect natural pink, with a light shine that feels just like a lip balm.

For Eyes mascara is absolutely essential - as are lash curlers. A few quick pumps with a curler to instantly look more awake. One coat of Manhattan Volcano Explosive Volume Mascara adds some natural definition while keeping things soft and fluttery.

For more eye definition I use the Agnès b. Le Kohl Eye Pencil, it´s a soft and creamy inside eye pencil. It stays in place all day and resists moisture without feeling heavy or waxy.

Favorite SPFs

Clinique Sun SPF 30 Body Cream is a body lotion with high, broad-spectrum SPF and free-radical-busting antioxidants. 
It hydrates skin and protects it from UVA and UVB damage.

The cream disappears into the skin without leaving a residue or scent behind. 
It's rich, but not so much that it's too heavy for summer or for everyday wear.


Garnier Ambre Solaire Dry Mist SPF30 is a spray-on sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection. The spray dries in seconds and it´s easy to apply.

Clinique SPF: Douglas / Garnier SPF: Müller
