Hello! Hope you’re all well! I’m Karen from LiverpoolLashes Blog here doing my first guest post ever on Charlie’s blog!
Today I wanted to talk to you about my essential beauty products for summer. If you’re anything like me I like to sieve out my regular products a little for the warmer weather, keep things a more minimal for make up but add more skin protecting products instead so lets get started.
Vaseline Spray & Go Cocoa Radiant – The last thing you want to do in the summer is apply a thick body butter so this product is ideal. It’s a fine mist that barely needs rubbing in as it sinks right into the skin at a lightning speed and smells amazing. It’s also lso available in Aloe Fresh and Essential Moisture.
Dove Hair Therapy Leave-In Conditioning & Care Spray – At this time of year it’s not just your skin that needs that extra boost of moisture. This is another fairly new product that helps prevent breakage and split ends. It can be applied to wet or dry hair and once it’s on it’s weightless so there’s no feeling of limp, weighed down hair. Your hair is left feeling super soft with a gorgeous scent.
Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment – Lips can often be forgotten when applying your SPF so this is a perfect ‘on the go’ product with an SPF 15 whilst also providing essential hydration with a subtle rose coloured tint.
Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser – Probably my favourite face moisturiser ever and that’s really saying something. This lightweight gel-like moisturiser is dribblesome with it’s fresh and zingy orange scent. It sinks in quickly so that you can apply your make up straight away and truly is really refreshing. I’d even go as far as to say that this is actually one of my favourite parts of my morning routine. Extremely highly recommended.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat – This is a product I don’t hear an awful lot about but it’s really good. Officially it’s a moisturiser that gives a matte finish but I use it as a skin mattifying base for my make up. If I’m not wearing make up I use it just to take the shine away. It really is a great product!
Urban Decay De-Slick – When the temperature rises it can definitely take it’s toll on our make up so thankfully Urban Decay have this amazing make up setting spray to keep your make up on for longer. It’s available in a two sizes so perfect for your handbag as well as your dressing table.
17 BB Cream – Most of us like to keep things lighter with our make up but 17’s BB Cream is an unexpected favourite of mine. The coverage is brilliant, far better than the higher end brands I’ve tried but still feels just like a moisture on your skin. I have a full review with swatches on my blog for this one.
Maybelline The Rocket Waterproof Mascara – In summer I think that it’s a great look to go ‘fresh faced look’ with just a BB cream or tinted moisturiser and mascara. Okay i’ll admit I threw this one in as a summer essential but it’s really a holy grail – there I’ve said it! If you have straight lashes that don’t seem to hold a curl you need to read my blog post posted on the 24th June called ‘Keeping Straight Lashes Curled’ – it will change the way you think about your lashes!
If you made it to here then thank you and a massive thank you to Charlie for letting me write it! I hope you enjoyed it half as much I enjoyed writing it. If you did then feel free to come and visit my blog, I have a post up every single day which is mainly a product review but sometimes I post about my work as a nail technician & beauty therapist.
Many thanks to Karen for helping out while I’ve been away, please do head over and take a look at her lovely blog!
