Looking for summer beauty ideas? Here are my top beauty essentials for Summer
Welcome, Summer! Spring has come and gone in a very strange manner for us in the UK and around the world with Coronavirus, but I am absolutely ready to welcome my favourite season of the year.
I had many requests for this post (which really makes me happy as I am no beauty blogger and finding 5 products per season is absolutely my limit). Without further ado, here are my Top beauty essentials for Summer 2021 that will shake up your summer skincare routine a bit.
Sol de Janeiro shower gel
Summer in a bottle. Every day while the (large) bottle of shower gel lasts. It is truly divine and I even found myself moisturising only every other day. If you miss holidays, get this.
Aesop Redemption Body Scrub
I have been looking for a ‘proper’ body scrub (and by that I mean one that you really ‘feel’ when you use it) and this Aesop number gets extra points for its shower-perfect packaging too.
Baby Foot Peel
This was the ultimate ‘lockdown’ home beauty treaty and can be repeated every 8 weeks. I highly recommend it as it will leave your heels and your feet softer than ever. And please get your better half some too. It promises to rid your soles of the toughest, roughest calluses and reveal the smoothest feet you’ve had since, like, birth. And it delivers.
Check out my foot cream edit.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse dry oil
It has been a staple in my life for a few years – and I always keep small samples in my wash bags as they do come in handy. I used them all up during lockdown and I ordered a large sized Nuxe oil again as I fell in love with it again. Great to hydrate all over (namely during the pre-dinner shower which was a travel ritual we brought back into our lives in the days where we got to sunbathe at home) and also for my hair which needed some love. I also found some of their shower oil (which is a shower gel and took me years to find out). Get it from Look Fantastic UK and Look Fantastic (USA/Canada)
Bumble & Bumble Summer Air Dry Set (limited edition shampoo + conditioner)
I have a thing about hotel toiletries whereby I really do not trust the hair products (some can be nice, but you never know), so I always travel with my own, which isn’t as easy, but it is life. This ‘air dry’ set is really great and a summer beauty essential.
Ouai hair treatment masque
Nivea Body Mousse
Costs £3 from Amazon UK and it is easier to find in supermarkets around the world than online.
I love love love it and after taking a break during the winter (where something thicker is required), I came back to this Nivea mousse which I bulk buy on Amazon as it sells out regularly. I can’t say enough things about this product and it is also Mr. O approved.
I will keep adding to this round up of my summer beauty essentials as I find more products I love.
Until the next time
