Summer Essentials | Skincare


Garnier Micella Water

This is my all-time favourite makeup remover which I use all year round! Taking your makeup off thoroughly before bed is a must during summer, as you really don’t want your pores clogged up, and end up with bad skin!


Sebamed Clear Face Foam

I got this in my Birchbox a month or so ago, and haven’t stopped using it since! Its a foam cleanser which I use daily after taking my makeup off. Not only does it wash away impurities and balance oily skin, but it also helps to maintain your skin’s natural moisture.


Hawaiian Tropic – Silk Hydration

One of my favourite products to use in the summer! It has an SPF 30, so is great if you’re going to be out in the sun, but is also a great moisturiser. It is also really light, so doesn’t feel like a normal suncream on your face, and is water resistant! What more could you want?


Ultrasun – Lip Protection

This is such a great lip balm! I use it twice a day to keep my lips moisturised. Its really great to use after wearing a matte lipstick. As well as a lip balm it also has factor 30 SPF in, so is great if you’re going out in the sun.


g Oil – Nail Treatment

This cuticle oil keeps nails and skin hydrated, reducing brittleness. Every girl wants nice nails in Summer, and this is the way to do it. Apply morning and night for healthy nails!


Batiste Dry Shampoo

So this one isn’t exactly classed as ‘skincare’, but it is one of my summer beauty essentials. In Summer it is so tempting to wash you hair more often as it seem to get sweaty and greasy much quicker. However rather than washing my hair everyday, I use dry shampoo in between washes to keep my hair looking fresh. I even carry a mini one in my bag with me.


Dirty Works Buttery Salt Scrub

Such a great exfoliator, it completely resurfaces and refines the skin, it also contains Shea Butter which helps to replenish lost moisture and restore skin back to its silky smooth self. Its great to use before fake tanning too!


Garnier Summer Body Gradual Tan Moisturiser

This is great if you’re fair skinned, and just want a gradual tan, rather than using a full on fake tan. Its really moisturising and gives your skin a beautiful glow all year round.


Nivea Sun Protection

When I’m on holiday I will always use a high SPF! SPF 50 or SPF 30 is the usual for me. However, I still use a suncream on warm days in this country (which isn’t too often), but still need to be protected from the sun! I even have a little roll on one that I can keep in my handbag, just in case!


Aloe Vera Gel

I use Aloe vera gel all year round as I find it is really good for my skin. However, this is great to put on after you’ve been in the sun (especially if you get a bit burnt!). It helps to soothe, moisturise and soften dry skin, and also sinks in really quickly so you don’t feel sticky.


However the most important thing of all is make sure you protect your skin from the sun!
