So it looks like the British summer is finally here! Summer is my favourite time of year when it comes to my beauty regime. It means going make-up free for most of the season and wearing lighter fragrances than I normally would. I still wear make-up in the evenings and always layer up on the Body Shop body butters and yogurts to keep my skin feeling nourished and smelling fresh. Why not try a free samples uk tester to see how great they are.
The following beauty essentials are my summer staples.
Calvin Klein CK Summer- This fragrance is designed for both men and women and is just gorgeous, it’s so summery that it’s like wearing a mojito. Top notes: lime + lemon peel, juniper berry, iced watermelon.
Heart notes: ginger root + ginger, star anise, wet cucumber.
Base notes: musk, amberwood, patchouli.
Davidoff- Cool Water Woman- This fragrance tells so many stories. I remember being a teenager and one of my colleagues at work would always wear the gents version of Cool Water. I became obsessed with the clean, fresh scent. Many years later I booked a holiday to Turkey and needed a light summery fragrance. My mind took me back to Cool Water and I purchased the womens version. This was 10 years ago and it is still my favourite summer scent. Fresh, juicy top notes of watermelon and pineapple introduce the delicate energy of a floral accord led by lily of the valley. The Eau de Toilette dries down to a seductive finish of blackcurrant and sensual woods.
Inecto Naturals- Tropical Coconut Infusion body lotion- This is a cruelty free lotion which contains tropical papaya oil and organic coconut oil. It absorbs really easily and leaves your skin feeling extremely hydrated. It’s so affordable too which is great as I use it every day during the summer months.
Elegant Touch- I’m obsessed with their range of nails, especially when I don’t have time to paint my nails or go to a salon. These are a quick and affordable option. The Havana Holiday range is my favourite.
The Body Shop- Lip Butters. I go through so many of these every year. I’m currently using the mango one which is my favourite. I sometimes mix it with vaseline too to give my lips extra sassy shine.
