8 Summer Beauty treats

8 Summer Beauty treats

I'm definitely one of those make-up/beauty hoarders.

I'm the first one to jump in and snap up a good deal/freebie with purchase (thank you Clinique Bonus Time) but often some of those beauty bits are left to gather dust in the bathroom cabinet.

So I'm trying to be a bit more selective with what I buy now and I've put together a few of my favourites I can highly recommend for the Summer:

Kiss the Moon - Glow After Dark Face Polish

A perfect pampering treat in a generous sized pot. Open the lid and it immediately smells like a super high end posh spa and leaves your face feeling and looking refreshed. A perfect gift for you or a great friend. From Kiss The Moon £30

La Roche-Posay Effaclar - Unclogging purifying sego-controlling mask anti-shine & La Roche Posay Toleraine Ultra Nuit

Annoyingly I'm prone to breakouts despite no longer being a teenager. These creams are the first I've used for ages which are actually helping to control things. They are both light and non greasy and even better are very reasonably priced. From Boots from £16

Elie Saab Le Parfum Resort Collection

I've been wearing Jo Malone for a few years now but fancy a change for the Summer. Designer Elie Saab has produced this gorgeous fruity and fresh fragrance in a generous sized bottle. From Fragrance Direct £40.95

Neom Organics Energy Oil

I'm a huge fan of Neom ever since I  was given Neom Bath Oils as an engagement gift. You dab a little of this oil on your wrists and take some time to breathe it in. It's the perfect size for your handbag and also perfect for using to kickstart your energy levels after lunch. From Neom Organics £8

St Tropez Everyday Tinted Body Lotion

I'm a lazy fake tanner so this is perfect for me as you simply apply it when you want a bit of extra glow. No streaks or embarrasing marks, just a hint of warmth on my legs. From Boots £10

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colour - Retro Red

Hmm red lipstick... I always feel I'm 5 years old and have raided my mum's make up drawer when I wear it. I think as I'm quite pale it can look a bit dramatic. I took the plunge recently though and got some advice from the Bobbi Brown counter. The sales assistant suggested retro red (its very bright). I tried it when out when meeting friends for dinner last week and actually loved the bolder colour. From Bobbi Brown £27

Blush Pink Leather Cosmetics Bag by Autograph, Marks and Spencer

Tucked away in the corner of the store was this make-up bag. Do I need one? Of course not. Do I love it? Yes! It's roomy, it's a beautiful blush pink colour. Best of all, it was a bargain. From M&S - £12.50 for similar style in silver
