My Holy Grail Products for Summer

Sunday, 21 July 2019

It feels like such a long time since I posted on the ol' blog! But I'm BACK, and I'm so ready to get stuck into blogging again!

So, for my first post I'm going to share with you my holy grail products for the summer. I love being able to adapt my beauty routine for the season and for me, the summer is all about dewy skin, a fresh-faced look, fluttery lashes & rosy cheeks. The products I'm featuring in this post are the ones that I'm finding myself reaching for every day and my summer beauty routine just wouldn't be complete without them!

Love Beauty & Planet Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Cleansing Gel
For me, a perfect beauty routine will always start with the skincare. I've started using this cleaner from Love Beauty & Planet quite recently, because I've been trying to make an effort to incorporate more natural products into my routines. Not only does this cleanser smell AMAZING, it's so gentle on the skin and is perfect for hydrating my often-dry skin.

Freshly Cosmetics Facial Toner with Lime
I won this toner as part of a set in a giveaway from Lady Writes Blog, but I am obsessed with it, especially at this time of year. The lime makes it smell fabulous and feels so refreshing on my skin, giving it that extra little bit of a hydration boost.

Dermalogica Prisma Perfect [GIFTED]
Using SPF is important all year round, but especially in the summer. I'll confess that it's a set that I am guilty of missing out but Prisma Perfect has been a total game-changer for me. It protects, hydrates and makes me glowwwwww. I'll 100% be repurchasing when this tube runs out because I don't think I could be without it now!

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter
I don't know about you, but during the warm summer days, I can't imagine anything worse than putting on a heavy foundation, only for it to be sliding off my face within an hour of stepping outside. All I want over the summer is something lightweight with just a little bit of coverage, and the Hollywood Flawless Filter is everything I need and more. The glow it gives is incredible, and it feels like I'm not wearing any foundation at all. Perfect for summer days!

The Body Shop Rose Dewy Glow Face Mist
I love a face mist during the summer, and this Body Shop mist is a firm favourite. It's so versatile, I mostly use it either as a primer or on no-foundation days to refresh my face, even out my skin tone and give a dewy finish. It's only £6 so amazing value for money, and the perfect size to pop in your handbag to spritz throughout the day!

Glossier Cloud Paint in Puff
Glossier is fast becoming one of my favourite brands. I love how the products are high quality, fuss free, and versatile enough to use in a way which fits in around you. I didn't think I'd fall in love with Cloud Paint blush as much as I did! The formula can only be described as dreamy, the colour is buildable and gives a gorgeous flush of colour in a second, perfect for when I'm late getting out of the door (so most days!) Puff is the perfect summer shade for rosy cheeks too!

L'oreal Paradise Mascara
If I could only use one product for the rest of my life, it would have to be mascara. I swear that I still feel half-asleep if I don't have it on! The Paradise mascara is one of my all-time faves (although nothing will beat Too Faced's Better Than Sex), for long, fluttery lashes, the perfect flourish for a summer look.

Vaseline Lip Balm in Rose Tint
An oldie, but a goodie. The Vaseline lip balms have been a handbag staple for me for about 10 years, and I can't see that changing any time soon. And I love the rose tint in the summer for the perfect pop of colour when I don't feel like fussy make up.

What are your summer beauty staples?
