Hair and beauty treats for summer
I always think it’s really lovely to take a few new beauty things to try when you go on holiday. Even if you aren’t actually going away, the summer months can be a super time for a spot of experimentation. There are loads of new beauty products around at the moment but here are just a few things I wanted to let you know about.
Smell like summer
If you want to be as fresh as a daisy this summer, why not give Yardley’s English Daisy Eau de Toilette a try for £19.99 a bottle? This is the perfect scent for summer, light and easy to wear everyday. An elegant, dewy fresh green floral with a burst of energetic top notes of fresh green leaves and apple, with a combination of hyacinth and white rose at its heart and warm base notes of sandalwood and musk.
It comes in a super cute little bottle which will be easy for you to pack and take on your travels.
Indulge your skin
Argan + is a highly effective, multi-benefit, ingredient led therapeutic body care line that combines the highest premium quality formulations with precious Moroccan Argan Oil.
New to their range is the Moroccan Spice Bath & Shower Collection. The collection includes Body Wash, Shower Oil and Rich Foam Bath, which contain Argan+ signature 5 Oil Synergy along with a rich blend of ginger, coriander, pepper, cinnamon, all spice, turmeric and cumin. The shower oil is rich, highly moisturising and smells amazing. It also leaves skin really soft.
If you are looking for more of a scrub, you might want to take a look at All Kind Natured ‘Feel Good Formulations’ – these are vegetarian friendly products, 97% natural and sulphate, paraben and petrochemical free – so you can care for your skin without worrying about the environment. I love , I find them really invoigorating and enjoy the feeling of smooth skin afterwards. A good body scrub is the Coconut & Monoi Sugar Scrub – it smells gorgeous and is the perfect product for smooth summer legs.
If you have dry skin on your feet then this is really effective if you follow up with a moisturiser too.
Treat your face
If you haven’t heard of the brand Good Things, I suggest you take a look at the products when you get a chance. With benefit led ingredients, Good Things offers a simple, effective and affordable preventative skincare routine.
Each collection has added benefits from natural ingredients and offers daily essentials for to healthy, radiant skin. All the products are FREE FROM skincare nasty’s such as sulphates, parabens and mineral oils. If you feel as if your pores could do with a spot of attention, The Pore-Fectly Clear Charcoal Mask is ideal for unclogging pores and getting rid of blackheads.
Skin feels heaps better after this, but I lot it because you don’t have to keep still with this on, you can still potter around getting things done – as much as it’s good to relax, we need to be able to multitask too.
Lay a good base
Perhaps you are on the look out for a really good foundation? I always think it can be a nightmare to find a foundation you love that suits your skin. I’m all for sticking with what works for your skin when you finally find it.
First Base foundation from Joan Collins, is youth promoting skincare and a foundation in one. It creates a smooth, flawless complexion with a radiant, natural finish, whilst it charges the skin with youthful energy to help increase collagen. In addition, hyaluronic acid moisturises and fills fine lines. Beautiful colour with light, natural cover and, it blends quickly and easily and leaves the skin feeling soft and comfortable, like a perfect second skin.
If you are over 30, this might be the foundation for you. It gives good coverage, without being heavy and is especially good around the eyes if you have dark circles.
If you are looking to stay fresh at home or away this summer, why not keep one of these to hand? On-trend is FreshX – an exciting new product in an innovative new category that fuses together two big trends: extra freshness down below and a serious environmental mission. On sale in Sainsbury’s stores nationwide FreshX is shaking up bathrooms all over the country with its commitment to meaningful ecological change.
Just two or three ‘Spritz’ of FreshX onto toilet tissue transforms it into a moist, soothing, cleansing wipe. It is a revolutionary new product category created to fight against needless waste produced by flushable wipes.
This can be placed in the bathroom for the whole family to use, or popped in a bag for when you are out and about. Available in two gentle varieties the ‘Spritz’ is dermatologist tested and approved for even the most sensitive skin with a skin loving formulation with Botanicals including Aloe Vera + Vitamins E, B5. It is free from oil, sulphites, alcohol and parabens. A genius product that does the job of a wet wipe, without the waste.
