5 Summer Favorites So Far


5 Summer Favorites So Far | Spunkyrella.com

Even though the last few weeks haven’t been exactly on the pleasant side for me, I did make sure to unwind and enjoy the moments in between. Mostly because it was way too hot to do anything else but also to not go completely insane. It’s the little things, you know? In this case, my five summer favorites


The holy grail of summer face masks

My skin has been acting up like a teenage brat recently, but one thing that ALWAYS helps is Lush’s Love Lettuce Face Mask. I just got notice that it will soon be discontinued. Why, Lush, oh why?!?!

It’s the perfect cooling, cleaning and plumping goo and the lavender oil adds to that relaxing feeling as well. I’ll miss you, boo.


The Best Chocolate summer treat

If you are Austrian, you surely know Brickerl. It’s that perfect little chocolate popsicle that comes in handy when I crave dessert/chocolate/a little cooling from the inside or all of it at once. Needless to say, I stocked up quite impressively this summer :)


The All-in-One Summer Body Oil

I hate to moisturize when the temps rise up to 35 C and higher, but I also feel like my skin needs some kind of skincare and care in all that heat and humidty. This is where Nuxe Body Oil with Water Flowers SPF 30 comes in. Slathered on right after my morning shower, my skin drinks it up in seconds. I don’t need any other scent since Nuxe oozes summer with its divine smell, and the SPF 30 makes sure I am protected at least until it’s time for the next shower.


The best summer shower buddy

When a shower gel is called Lebenslust or Lust for Life and contains matcha tea and goji berries, you know that it’s a winner. I love Tetesept products for their natural ingredients and incredible smells and this one must be my absolute favorite right now. Morning or night, I love that refreshing kick it gives me!


The Most Kick-ass summer Read

You already know how much I love Monika Kanokova’s career guides, don’t you? With her latest gem called Work Trips + Road Trips, she really hit it out of the park. I’m currently working on a little overview/review for next week and can’t wait for you to read it too. There might be a little giveaway included as well (hint, hint!).

  1. I’ve never been much of a beauty gal and now I don’t even know what’s out there. Reading about these products was therefor very helpful. I wish they could just pop if magically in my suitcase! Especially the body oil would be much needed here in France 😊

    1. Social media is the death of my wallet really?! I am such a guinea pig and like to try new things – especially when it comes to natural and organic skincare – I just can’t help myself :) Well, as far as I am aware Nuxe is a French brand, so I’ll hit up a French pharmacy and ask for it. I got mine at a pharmacy here in Vienna and it even came with a complimentary free shampoo/shower gel from the line. Win win :)
