Summer Favourites - 2015 Edition

This Summer has been one of my best ever, I've moved house, started a new job, and generally gained a better sense of 'me' as a person. It's definitely been a Summer to remember.

Anyway, enough of the nostalgia... Today I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite beauty products that I have been reaching for all season long.

Witch Blemish Gel - £3.29
I use this little miracle worker all year round, but in the Summer I find it especially good for sunburn, insect bits, spots and all minor skin concerns. I couldn't live without this.

Sanctuary Spa Hair & Scalp Rescue Mud - £2
This hair mask is awesome for sun scorched and beach battered hair. Use this once a week whilst in the shower and you'll notice a massive difference in the texture and feel of your hair. It's the perfect summer pick me up for your tresses.

Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray - £21full size, £9 travel size
I mentioned this product in my last post, and I really believe its a must have to ensure your make up stays put in the warmer weather. I like to spritz this on straight after I've applied my make up but it can work just as well when you feel like your make up needs a bit of a refresh through out the day.

Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation in shade 103 Ivory - £36
I have recently rediscovered this foundation and I'd forgotten how fantastic it's staying power is.
It has a medium to full coverage and a built in SPF 15. I like to use a tiny amount blended in with a kabuki brush to give a more natural look.

Dove Derma Spa Summer Revived Body Lotion in Medium Dark - £6.99
This is Dove's revival of their original Summer skin body lotion which I used to use religiously in high school. So you can imagine how excited I was to see this new formula appear on the shelves of Boots. I like to rub it in first with my hands, then buff it in with a tanning matt. Don't forget to wash your hands straight after you've applied it as it develops a gorgeous sun kissed glow quickly after application.

The Bodyshop Mango Body Scrub - £13 for 200ml
I have been using this body scrub pre and post faux glow this summer. It smells heavenly, as I find all Bodyshop products do, and it has a good amount of scrub in it to really exfoliate all of your dry areas. I'm definitely in need of purchasing a full size version of this.

Nivea Express Hydration Primer for Normal to Combination skin - £4.99
This is fairly new to me but I have been using it everyday since I bought it. It's a kind of hybrid between a face cream and a primer. It has a gel like texture, and it's fast absorbing which is great if you're in a hurry in the morning. It's light weight formula gives a smooth, non greasy surface for your make up to adhere too, making it a lovely primer as well as leaving the skin hydrated like a face cream.

What products have been your staples this summer? xoxo
