Best Summer Beauty Essentials - Skincare Regimen - Hey Mishka 2

Finding fresh, delicious scents, sprays and beauty products is one of my favorite things to do—especially in the summer. What’s more fun than shopping for summer beauty products? I could spend an entire day wandering around the city looking for the perfect aromas, mists and soaps to box up and bring home.

A couple weeks ago, I did just that. Here’s a peek into my summer beauty essentials and scent lineup, from the perfect primer to the sweetest smelling suds… and of course, a healthy dose of rose. Seriously, does a more flawless scent exist?

Above, from left to right:

1. Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater

2. Monoi Tiare Coconut Tahiti Eau De Toilette

3. Gourmand Sel Ocean Hair + Body Mist

4. Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist

1. Monoi Tiare Tahiti Coconut Soap

2. H&M Limited Edition Ruby Pomegranate Body Mist

3. Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleansing Lotion

4. e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer

My fixations for the season? Coconut and rose. I’m also into light, airy fruity scents with a hint of vanilla. Mmm.

I included the e.l.f. primer because it’s one of the best I’ve ever used. It turns even the cruddiest morning face into a smooth palette for applying makeup. Mario Madescu continues to own my universe with skincare, from toners to my all-time favorite face mist spray, rivaled only by Herbivore’s similar spray, which I just discovered (so I bought both).

As usual, no affiliate links—just my recommendations for delicious scents and skin treats.
