Summer Essentials: Innisfree Anti-Darkening Fixer
Are you in the midst of summer craziness yet? Here in Berlin, we have the weirdest summer to date. One day it is scalding almost-40°C-hot, the next day we have thunderstorms and taifun-like rain. The temperature climbs and falls from day to day and it is slowly but steadily getting to me. For the hot days however, I have made myself a survival kit that I carry everywhere and one little item that has been a constant companion of mine is the Innisfree Anti-Darkening Fixer.
Claims: „A high molecule networking polymer creates a thin fix film on the face for a clear face without darkening. Long lasting film formula enables your makeup last long. Juju green tea extract gives your face moisture immediately.“

So does it work? …yeah, kinda. It is not as effective as some sprays such as the Urban Decay All Night Fixing Spray but my make-up definitely looks a lot better than without it. I also like to use it just as a refreshener when I’m half through my workday as my job is just really stressful. While my make-up does wear off throughout the day (and honestly, I’d be a bit scared if it wouldn’t) the overall look stays a lot more fresh and not a lot of transferring is happening.
Since this works for me but doesn’t necessarily blow me out of the water, I won’t repurchase this and try out other similar products instead. If you’re interested in trying this, you can get it at Jolse for 13,98$.
Do you have any essentials for summer? Or any fixing spray that works amazing that I should try? Please let me know! 🙂 Hope you all had a great weekend, I am off to write my second master thesis now. Yeah. Second one. Ugh. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask away in the comments 🙂
