9 Summer Beauty Must Haves

July 10, 2015

Shimmer and shine with these gorgeous products

 

Protect your skin from the sunrays this summer with Lancôme’s Soleil Bronzer SPF 30 Protective Cream (£24.50). It’s the company’s first combo product to ward off the effects of UVA and UVB exposure while helping to hide visible signs of premature ageing. It’s the ‘Every Woman’ of bronzers!

 

Cheat your way to glowing skin with St. Tropez’s new Self Tan Luxe facial oil (£23). Offering seven-day hydration in a lightweight, quick-drying formula, this will give you a “natural-looking and streak-free tan that lasts for days”.

 

In keeping with the glowing theme of the season, keep your look bright with Burberry’s Sheer Eyeshadow in Gold Pearl No.26 (£23, John Lewis). It’s light and creamy for a smooth and natural application, giving your eyes a sun-kissed glaze.

 

This next product is a dream come true. It’s Label.M’s Hair & Body Perfume (£19.50). Bursting with citrus blossom and white florals mixed with rich woods, it’s been designed to revive both your hair and body with a beautiful, fresh scent. You can almost smell it now!

 

Pucker up for this quirky Blackcurrant SPF 15 lib balm by Balmi (£4.99, Amazon). With UVA protection and made with vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil, it’s perfect for those ‘Balmi’ nights… (Sorry, we just couldn’t resist!)

 

If it’s more ‘lippy with a twist’ you’re after, ClarinsInstant Light Lip Comfort Oil (£18) could be just the ticket. It comes with a sponge-tip applicator and is made with hazelnut oil to plump your lips, as well as Mirabelle oil for preventing dehydration and to leave your lips feeling satin-smooth. It even has a subtle sweet taste, perfect for distracting you from those unhealthy cravings…

 

Hide those sleepless nights with this genius Skin Concealer pencil from Nudestix (£24, Space NK). Available in eight shades, it’s a matte cream concealer/foundation combo offering coverage for up to four hours and made with conditioning and moisturising shea butter and vitamin E.

 

You can’t go wrong with this beautiful Queensgate Gardens Floral nail polish by Nails Inc (£15, Selfridges). A pastel-blue with white floral-effect polish full of daisy-shaped glitter, it’s girly heaven at your fingertips.

For those of you with an Anti Stretch Mark Pack, you'll be pleased to know there's a way to keep cool using the set. While you're wearing your band during these warmer weeks, using more of the Day Gel (£23.99) will help make things much more comfortable in the heat. So pile it on!
