Beauty Products I am loving currently…
It’s summer time so beauty products are a must have, we add to our collection especially this time of year. Well I do, as I seem to use more / want to use more of them. I seem to swap more of my products over too. I prefer fresher smells during the summer like citrus then candy apple or vanilla smell. Instead of having the heavy body butter during the winter I prefer a lighter body lotion.
The first thing this summer I am loving still is my SJP NYC PerfumeSJP NYC Perfume. I love the scent of it sweet floral mix upon with rose and gardenia scents when it hits my skin. I’ve loved this perfume for a very long time. The packaging always captures me due to the fact that it reflects SJPs character Carrie Bradshaw. I am one big Sex and the City fan.
Another one that I am still loving is the Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser especially the aloe vera fresh version. Another smell is aloe vera I love over the summer due to it has a soothing feeling once been in the sun for a long time. These spray and go can’s are perfect for summer as they give a light fresh coat to the skin bug moisturise it as well. I love about this product.
When it’s summer, I don’t like to have a heavier foundation on my face and prefer something lighter. Lucky for us all Maybelline have brought out their Fit Me Matte Foundation, priced £6.99 in Boots and Superdrug. One step up from their BB Cream but lighter then a normal foundation. For me I’m an addict to Benefits Hello Flawless, but in the summer it doesn’t work for me unless its a cool summer night.
After you wear your foundation, if it hasn’t rubbed off or you’ve sweated it off then it has to be the Garnier Miscellar Water. Watching Ellie Steadman vlogs, it made me realise how much of a bargain the £5 bottle really is. You don’t need a lot, but it wipes off your makeup, mascara and shadow without any problem. I’ve used makeup wipes in the past, from the cheap ones from Primark to the more expensive ones like Tee Tree. For me now it’s all about the Miscellar Water and using this going forward.
I don’t know if this is right but I use brand of shampoo and conditioner to wash my hair with and use the VO5 Nourish Shine blow dry spray to protect my hair in Summer. I do admit I do blow dry my hair a lot, so having that extra protection does work. I do see the benefits, well that’s what hairdressers tell me.
Hope you’ve liked my favourite summer beauty products. Let me know if you use any of them or like or dislike them?
