Updated Skincare Routine for Summer feat. Fourth Ray Beauty

Hello my dolls!

I have a new new post for you, my updated summer morning skincare routine featuring Colourpop’s sister brand, Fourth Ray Beauty. Shout-out to Cleia for introducing this brand to me, I would have never known they had a sister brand! πŸ™‚

Anyway, I’m going to be showing you guys the products I have been using lately for my morning skincare routine as I have replaced a few and also added a few (FRB).

I’m so excited to announce I have finally settled on a schedule for both my YouTube and my blog. I will be posting videos twice a week, Tuesday’s and Thursday’s with posts to go with them, most likely. If I decide not to do a blog post for my videos, then you guys will get different content here. Also, also, also, Wednesday’s will be for BONUS content whether that’s a video or a post or both. I just have so much content I want to put out this summer, so many ideas. So yeah, expect loads of stuff from me this season.

ANYWAY….moving on!

Feel free to watch my skincare routine video or keep scrolling to read:

Cleansing & Toning

So I use the Earth Therapeutics Soft Touch Complexion Brush along with my current favorite cleanser, e.l.f’s Daily Face Cleanser. This cleanser just seems perfect for the hot weather, it feels refreshing and I love how clean my face feels after using it.


To tone, I use another favorite, Thayer’s Witch Hazel Rose Petal Toner which was recommended to me by the lovely Ingrid Madison, I totally love it! I’m running low and will be repurchasing!

Eye & Lip Care


I don’t always use these products, the eye cream (e.l.f. Illuminating Eye Cream) is only to prep my skin when I will be doing my makeup since my eyelids have been dry recently. And also to prep my lips in case I chose a matte lip, I use the PUR Cosmetics -XFaux Lip Plumping Exfoliator and then use the Essence Prettifying Lip Oil to nourish my lips.

Fourth Ray Beauty: Wide Awake Trio

Ah finally, the focus of this skincare routine.

After using toner, I like to use this Watermelon Seed Oil (2 drops for my face, 1 drop for my neck), warm it between my fingers and press gently into the skin.Β  While I’m not a huge fan of the scent, it’s not completely bothersome, and I only smell it as I’m applying it. I love how light it feels compared to the Physician’s Formula Bright Booster Oil Elixir, that one feels thicker, so I only use it at night. I was thinking that I wasn’t going to be able to use a face oil but I’m glad that I got this trio because it’s perfect for summer and even during hot days, my face doesn’t feel too oily.

The face milk practically replaced my moisturizer for the day, although if I feel my skin needs a bit more hydration, I will drink tons of water and also use another moisturizer on top. Anyway, this one feels lightweight as well and I love how fast it sinks into my skin. I have been applying this face milk right after the watermelon seed oil, and I’m amazed at how well they go together.


Lastly, the Fresh AF mist. Simple to use. Just spritz throughout the day if needed and I love how refreshing it feels. I do tend to change this one for my other Mario Badescu facial sprays, so they’re usually all in rotation, but this one is much smaller than the others and fits perfectly into my makeup bag! Perfect for on-the-go.

Extra Products

Though the SPF should NOT be an extra, I’m including it as such because I don’t ALWAYS leave my house, so I don’t need to wear it indoors. If that makes sense. I’m using the Simple Skincare Light Moisturizer SPF1, it’s not CF and it does have those harsh chemicals that kill the coral reef so don’t buy it!


And since I wash my hands like ALL the time, I do need a hand cream. I’m currently using this Delectable Triple Moisture Body Lotion with Coconut & Cream, and I love it! Super soft and hydrating. I am almost out so will need to replace my hand cream with another.

So that’s it you guys! I tried to make this post short and sweet because for the most part, my routine stays the same. The FRB products are the new additions to my morning skincare routine and I have been loving using them.

I’d love to know if anyone else has tried their products, which ones specifically, and how you like them! πŸ˜€ I am definitely thinking of picking up some more once I’m done with these, which might take a while!

Hope you all are having an amazing day! I’m definitely feeling so much better after such a bad day yesterday! πŸ™‚ Sending you all good vibes! ❀signature

  1. SUSCRIBED! Omg, i love your voice, its so feminine but too high pitched and silky smooth! Your vanity is so pretty too! Thayer’s is so widely used, what does it do for the skin? You have a really simple routine, that’s nice I always feel people overcomplicate it sometimes. Thanks for sharing! (:

    1. Omg you’re so sweet!! Thank you!!
      And toners are basically used for cleansing and cleaning away impurities from the skin AFTER using a face wash. It also shrinks pores, adds a bit of hydration back into the skin (after washing) and restores the skin’s ph balance though some may not depending on its ingredients. There are a few that I’ve tried in the past that feel drying on the skin, so I dont recommend those lol.
      I like to keep it at simple as possible, my night time skincare routine is a bit more complex (usually when I have all the products that would be included in the 10 step), otherwise, that one is fairly simple too. I have a full 10 step and also a lazy girl’s routine lol.
      Thanks for reading doll!! πŸ’œπŸ’œ

  2. Fabulous description of products on video! β™₯️ The e.l.f’s Daily Face Cleanser looks good. Will have to give it a try. So so so happy you like the Thayer’s Rose Water toner. It’s a perfect year round toner. Sending good vibes back! xx

    1. Thank you so much! And the elf daily face cleanser feels so nice and gentle on the skin I love it. Super affordable too!
      I’m so glad I liked it too! I like it better than other toners I’ve tried in the past AND I get more product for my buck πŸ˜€


    1. They are amazing, I think you would like the toner a lot. It’s not drying and it feels so gentle.
      A simplified skincare routine is the way to go. My morning routine is much easier than my night time. I’m still trying to figure out which products I need for my skin. Not everything works and I dont think I need everything lol.


  3. I love that you’re doing youtube videos too Rossy! Go you! I’ve been thinking of trying E.L.F’s skincare line since I found out it was a cruelty free brand, so I’m glad to hear you are loving the cleanser. I will definitely have to pick that up! Although I haven’t heard of that brand, the toner sounds really good. I love witch hazel products, I’ll have to check that out too. Thanks for sharing Rossy!

      No problem doll thanks for reading!!

      1. Well even if I can’t find it here, I will definitely keep my eyes out for it when I come to the States. Don’t let me forget please, haha!! Although I will definitely be trying the ELF skincare asap as they do sell their products here in the UK! I’m super excited to try!

        1. That’s right! They’re so affordable!. I’m sure you can splurge a little when you come back over here πŸ˜‰
          Let me know if you end up buying anything and how you like it


  4. I should try ELF skincare products, they are really affordable and get a lot of positive reviews but I don’t know why I still haven’t tried them :p Definitely gonna try the Fourth Ray products too!!

    1. You really should! So affordable and so luxe! They quickly became favorites I cant wait to try the rest of their stuff. And it can be hard to buy new skincare if you’ve already got products you absolutely love.
      Let me know how you like FRB’s products if you ever try them!


  5. I love this!! It’s so fun to see what other people are using for their skincare and to get ideas whether their products will work for me. I’m still looking for ideas for my awful acne-prone skin. I haven’t tried the Elf cleanser yet, though, so I should give it a go! Thanks for sharing, Rossy! πŸ™‚

    1. You are NOT alone when it comes to having acne prone skin, I’ve been struggling so much with it for years and I’m still looking for products that truly work for me. For now I’ve only been able to find products that hydrate my skin well, now I have to find products that will calm my skin and will also relieve my acne a bit πŸ™‚
      And definitely give these elf products a try, they’re pretty affordable!

    1. They are quite cute, huh? πŸ™‚ Aw I’m so glad you liked the Thayer’s toner! It’s seriously one of the best in my opinion, even though I haven’t tried many but I like this better than whatever I’ve tried LOL
