Summer Essentials 2018

Hello beauties, As you read this I’m currently on holiday in Berlin, enjoying the sun and I want to share my top summer essentials that are getting me through the warm season. From makeup products I’m loving, products that are keeping me smooth and tanned and summer scents that I’ve been enjoying.

Treat Yo Self Coconut Oil & Lavender Oil Sugar Scrub

When the sun comes out it also means that the legs come out so I want my pins to be as beautiful as possible. First step to achieving summer friendly legs is exfoliation. I’ve been loving this sugar scrub from a brand called Treat Yo Self that I picked up in TK MAXX. It has a medium grain to it that buffs the skin and removes dead skin cells leaving smooth and fresh looking skin. It also has a gorgeous soothing lavender scent and coconut oil to keep your legs soft.

Wilkinson Sword Intuition f.a.b Razor

The best time to shave is after you have exfoliated as it makes the little hairs stand up ready for a nice clean shave and prevents ingrown hairs. I was kindly sent the Intuition f.a.b razor from Wilkinson Sword to test and it’s my new favourite razor. It’s different to any other women’s razor because it has top blades that shave up and bottom blades that shave down meaning you don’t even have to lift the razor off your body. It’s provides such a clean shave without any nips or cuts. I will definitely be buying more razor heads for this.

Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan

I’ve recently been getting into using fake tan. I was kindly sent this by Influenster for testing purposes. You can read my full review here. I’ve been loving how easy it is to apply with a tanning mitt and the natural sun kissed colour it gives without looking orange or patchy. It dries down so quickly and doesn’t transfer. The best thing is about this is that it washes off the next day which makes it perfect for days I don’t want a tan.

Huda Beauty Coral Obsessions Palette

I recently received this palette here. Just look at these colours. I’ve never seen a eyeshadow palette that screams summer more than this one. It has seven warm and bright matte shades and two gorgeous shimmers. Packed full of pigmented, it’s my new favourite palette!

Kiko Milano Nail Lacquer ‘Bright Orange’

There’s nothing better then a pop of colour to pair with a nice summer outfit. I’ve been loving this bright orange shade from Kiko Milano. It’s super cheap and easy to apply and is the most gorgeous summery colour.

Kiko Milano Gold Waves Highlighter

I have a full review of this stunning highlighter here. Everything from the packaging to the soft and natural glow from within look it gives screams beautiful. I love how subtle but glowy it looks on the skin. I basically haven’t stopped using it since I picked it up. It’s super cheap and the pan size is huge! When I want a more intense highlight I use this with some fixing spray to really make it pop!

Ed Hardy Shake & Spray Fragrance

I’ve always been a sucker for a sweet and floral scent. Think the girliest most sickly sweet scent and that’s what I love to smell like. I love how fresh and fruity this spray is. Nice and light on a hot day to keep you smelling scrumptious. I also love the packaging. It’s on sale at the moment so gab yourself a bargain!

Bed Head Beach Bound Protection Spray

This will be featured in a beach hair post next week but I wanted to add it to my summer essentials beforehand. It’s not just your skin that needs protection from the sun, your hair can get sun damage too! That’s where this protection spray comes in. I spray it all over my damp hair and dry as normal. It keeps my hair nice and soft as well as protected and also helps lock my colour in as I always colour my hair.

Colab Dry Shampoo In Tropical

I’m a huge fan of dry shampoo, being a mother I don’t always have time to wash my hair so dry shampoo in a must for me some mornings. I used to use Batiste until I came across this brand. Basically like Batiste but without the horrible white residue that lingers in your hair. Simply spray in as usual and brush your hair hair. It’s leaves you with clean and voluminous hair and smells so heavenly.
