Summer 2015 Essentials

I know it’s hard to believe but summer is just around the corner! The time to put your tights and jumpers away and shave your legs that may not have been seen out since August 2014! As well as shaving your legs, there are a few essentials that are a must-buy for Summer 2015. Lets take a look…

Tinted Moisturiser

When it comes to summer make up, you shouldn’t really be wearing the same as you do in the winter. During the winter people tend to like a little bit more coverage, but if you wear the same amount in the summer you’ll probably find that towards the end of the day your make up will have slipped off your face…well not quite but you get the gist!

So in the summer why not replace your foundation with a tinted moisturiser, preferably one that has an SPF.

My favourite is the Olay Complete BB Cream SPF 15 Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturiser. For this product Olay have teamed up with Max Factor to bring you a product that gives you 24 hour moisture whilst evening your skin tone and protecting you from the sun.

The range consists of shades for all skin types and has a light texture to ensure your pores won’t clog.

You can purchase from Boots for the small price of £4.99

Cleansing & Exfoliating Brush

To make sure your skin in good condition in not only summer, but all year round you’ll need to invest in a cleansing and toning brush. More effective than hand washing, an electronic brush will give your skin a deep clean, unclogging pores and exfoliating dry patches.

My favourite is the Magnitone Lucid. Magnitone have a great range of brushes for all skin types and have recently joined forces with Pixie Lott creating a limited edition hot pink version – definitely my favourite!

The brushes work by pulsating 10,000 times a minute which leaves your complexion clear and in turn allowing it to better absorb your moisturisers.

Using it for just a couple of minutes a day your skin will be softer and brighter in only 7 days…wow! It’s as easy as that!

Magnitone also have some great accessories such as a charging stand and case so yours can be the best in town!

You can purchase them from the website for just £69.99

Feet Kit

We’ve been wearing 20 denier tights for months now so it’s no surprise that our feet are looking less than desirable!

So before we’re in the midst of summer now is the time to get those feet sandal ready, using a combination of products.

Scholl, the makers of all things feet, have created their 3-Step Perfect Feet Kit to help buff away the hard skin, leaving them silky smooth.

The kit compromises of an electric foot file, an intense serum and foot soak; basically everything you need.

The electronic foot file comes with finely ground diamond crystals that exfoliate and buff the feet making the dead skin disappear. Containing green caviar, marine serum and Vitamin E, the foot soak leaves your feet super silky. Finally the intense serum contains hyaluronic acid as well as green caviar and Pentavitin as it’s known for it’s ability to hold and retain water more than any other compound. This ensure your feet are constantly hydrated.

You can buy the Scholl Perfect Fit Kit from Boot for £35.00

Your lips tend to be forgotten when it comes to protecting them in the sun, so it’s important you keep something to hand to ensure they’re moisturised at all times.

The classic brand of lip balm is Carmex and I would definitely recommend using this as a day-to-day lip product during the summer. With an SPF 15 you can be safe in the knowledge that your lips won’t burn or become chapped. Carmex even have sheer tint SPF lip balm to give you a bit of colour.

You can buy Carmex Moisture Plus Berry Lip Balm from Boots at £4.99
