In summer, less is definitely more. Particularly this summer – which has been unbelievably good, but has meant I’ve had to ditch a lot of my go to products in favour of more lightweight options.
These four products have been my absolute summer essentials in the heatwave we’ve been having here in Britain – a mattifying primer, the best tanning drops ever, a cream illuminator that gives a gorgeous bronzed glow and natural lips.
Dermalogica Oil Free Matte, £44.50 available here.
Worth every penny as keeps my skin shin free all day and has SPF30 so covers me for sun protection too!
Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops, £19.99 available here.
Available in light, medium and dark – I opted for dark and they’ve been the perfect thing to give me face a super natural tanned look. I mix several drops in with my moisturiser on a morning and apply. You need these!
Sleek Barekissed Illuminator in Pompeii, £8.99, available at Boots, Superdrug or for £7.28 via Amazon here.
Gives you a lovely bronzed glow. You can read my full review of the Sleek Barekissed Illuminator’s here.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick, £19.99 available here.
Hydrates and nourishes my lips without being sticky, and also has SPF15 so perfect for some extra sun protection. Leaves you with lovely, plump looking natural lips that are perfect for summer.
