It does seem a bit daft to be doing this post when the weather is so diabolical but you know, not only are the products suitable for the hot sunny weather, but you could just use them to get you in the Summer mood when its wet outside.
Starting with this beauty. My new love.
Givenchy Prisme Again in Happy Sun. I was gifted this so I don’t really know how much it costs, but its a beautiful product. Soft and buttery and sheer. Not a hint of orange, just healthy subtle bronze glow. I’ve been completely unable to find this online anywhere other than Ebay, the ones on Ebay aren’t the Union Jack version but are also gorgeous… it does however go without saying to be wary and keep your wits about you so you don’t end up with a fake. I’ll be trying Givenchy more in future that’s for sure. Perfect for us pale skinned ladies.
The next item is something I was sent a press release for the other day.
The Weleda Summer Travel Kit. I have never tried Weleda, I’ve not tried anything in the kit but I’ve heard nothing but good things about the range and whilst this kit isn’t on my wishlist purely because I’m not going on holiday, if I was going on holiday I’d definitely buy this! Fir £29.99 this is all you need. Actually, I’ve just read in the press release it’s suitable for a UK holiday and I don’t need much of an excuse so maybe I will treat myself. So what we’ve got in there is a 20ml Citrus Creamy Body Wash, a 30ml Citrus Deodorant and 10ml of Citrus Refreshing Body Oil. Then there’s 30ml of Combudoron Spray for the relief of insect bites, 25ml Melissa Comp Drops to elieve nausea, stomach upset and occasional diarrhoea, perfect for over indulgence, travel sickness or a minor tummy upset and finally there’s 20ml of Rhiondoron Nasal Spray with Aloe Vera for clearing and moisturising the nasal passages, perfect for dry air and high pollen counts. It really does sound like a great kit.
So if you put that together with the next kit and aside from your facial skin care and make up you’ll be all set for your holiday.
The label.m Mini Airliner*. The deal is that for £12.99 you can choose any 4 label.m favourites in mini sizes which all go into the zipped pouch. You choose one Cleanse product, one Condition product and any two Create and Complete products. my kit contains the Daily Moisturising Shampoo, the Daily Shine Conditioner, both absolutely lovely, the Sea Salt Spray for your beachy waves and the Dry Shampoo which does a great job! These kits are available at label.m salons globally and Toni & Guy Salons. You can find your nearest stockist on the label.m website.
Then there’s my new favourite deodorant.
Dove Natural Touch Dead Sea Minerals*. I have the roll on which is £2.19 but there’s also an aerosol which is £3.39 or £2.49 depending on which size you like. I didn’t think I liked roll on deodorants and have used the stick type of deodorants for years and years… it was a surprise to find I liked this one. It has a very strong scent which is absolutely lovely, but it does fade which is good news for those who don’t like their deodorants to be strongly scented. It keeps me dry all day and it smells nice. That’s all I need from a deodorant and this fits the bill well!
My final suggestion is this beauty. The Melvita Gradual Self-Tanning Moisturising Gel-Cream* £20
If you don’t like the sun’s rays on your skin but don’t like being a pale skinned beauty, but also don’t want to do the full on fake tan thing in order to be a bronzed goddess, this could be the product for you. It creates a natural looking light tan which is relatively streak free, for some reason I seem to be able to get at least one streak with every tan product I try and this is no exception, but I must say to have only one little streak is virtually unheard of for me, I usually just end up one big streaky mess whereas this is pretty much great. it contains no DHA at all which is the usual active agent in tanners and instead contains Erythrulose which is derived from sugar cane. Thisdevelops over a few hours and one application works well enough all though I do need more to build up the colour. One application takes the tinge off my blueness. It’s really moisturising but even better, although it claims to be vanilla scented, to me it smells just like fudge yoghurt! Nom!
So there we have it, my top picks for your holidays. Some of them I’ve tried, some of them I haven’t some were PR samples and some weren’t, all are fab…trust me when I say I’ve not included some items that definitely didn’t make it to my top holiday picks list!
