Three for Summer

Here in the UK we don't exactly get the most reliable summer. Unfortunately there is just no predicting how hot or cold the weather is going to be or if you live in Scotland like I do how many days that its actually going to be dry. However, with the weather set to change during August and finally give us some of that sunshine we have been craving I thought I'd mention a couple of things I've been obsessed with on the very few hot summer days we have actually had...

First up is my very favourite suncream! This Garnier Ambre Solaire Golden Protect in SPF 10 is absolutely perfect for carrying around on days out to the park or beach on a hot summers day. I go very dark in the sun so normally I would use a tanning oil (with a high SPF of course) if I am sitting sunbathing however this is light weight and sinks into the skin easily which makes it more practical for days out and even walking around the city. I've actually even used this on my face and unlike most other suncreams it didn't break me out! It also has added ingredients such as monoi oil to help you tan and although I'm skeptical about those sort of products this has GLITTER in it and smells absolutely incredible. Well done Garnier well done! 

I've also been using my Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist on hot days and its been a complete god send. This stuff is so light and moisturizing on the skin with ingredients such as rosewater helping to refresh and tone the skin whilst also keeping you cool in the heat. This is suitable for even the most sensitive of sensitive skins and once again it smells amazing. I love this as it can be used as a moisturizer, toner, spritz or a setting spray for your make up so it is very much a multi use product...and everyone knows how useful those are! The Body Shop Vitamin E range has always been one of my favourites as it knows how to treat the skin whilst still being incredibly gentle and I never get break outs from it, so for anyone looking to try some new skin care I would definitely recommend!

Lastly, is a fairly new addition to my collection but also one of my biggest obsessions right now. The Rimmel  Radiance BB Cream is absolutely perfect for those of you who like me have always wanted to try a BB cream but feel as though you need that little bit more coverage. It's a bit like the Wake Me Up Foundation with a bit lighter coverage and of course being a BB cream this is also completely weightless on the skin. It also moisturizes and brightens tired or dull skin and it leaves me with such a gorgeous glow! This is probably more suited to dry skin as I do have to powder a little, but I don't mind as it looks so nice on. It also comes with a very handy SPF of 20 making it the perfect holiday base! 

What are your favourite products during the summer? I'd love to know in the comments below?

  1. I actually used an Ambre Solaire SPF for the first time this year and I have to say for a cream it was really nice (I tend to prefer oils as they seem to work better with my skin) - not to thick, smelt ok and definitely did the job!

    Must try that Bosy Shop range, I've been meaning to for months now!
