Don’t be a sweaty mess. Fill your beach bag with these Baywatch-sexy beauty essentials to keep you cool, protected, and looking good all summer. Here are my favorites:



LANCÔME Belle de Teint – CHF 69.00
in 04 Belle de Mielle

 Perfect for a healthy glow,  this silky, smooth bronzer adds instant color, shimmer and healthy glow to your skin. I like to use it on my face or all over my body to enhance my summer tan.


LANCÔME Shine Lover – CHF 40.00
in 120 Ô My Rouge

A vibrant shine lipstick that reveals the attitude of a smile while hydrating, rejuvenating, and smoothing the lips.


SISLEY Phyto-Eye Twist – CHF 45.00
in 02 Bronze

This is your all-in-one waterproof eye make-up solution combing an eye shadow and with an eyeliner. The “jumbo” tip blends and glides to color the eyelids the way you like it. Perfect for the beach!


CLARINS UV Plus Anti-Pollution
Day Screen Multi Protection SPF 50 – CHF 59.00

This is my daily must-have all year around because it is the perfect daily defense for younger-looking skin as the lightweight, oil-free screen shields skin from UVA/UVB rays, pollution, and free radical damage. It forms an invisible shield that protects the skin from the appearance of dark spots and future aging.



BIOTHERM Spray Solaire Lacté SPF 30 – CHF 41.00 (200ml)
Ultra-Light Moisturizing Sun Spray

I love this oil-free and non-sticky sun protection spray. With its quick application, high SPF and water-resistant formula, its is ideal for all your beach activities.


CLARINS Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster – CHF 46.50

One word: amazing! This self-tanner that can be mixed with any skin care product to add a self-tanning effect to the moisturising and firming benefits of your usual routine. Ultra-simple for a radiant sun-kissed glow.


ESTÉE LAUDER Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche Skinscent – CHF 82.00 (100ml)

Last but not least, summer wouldn’t be the same for me without Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess scent. The limited edition fragrance is finally back and it smells like beach, sun and summer in a bottle with its gourmand base notes of amber, coconut milk, vanilla, vetiver, sandalwood and myrrh.
