Summer Special: Accessories
The last blog in my summer beauty special! This one is all about the other bits and pieces that are useful beauty accessories throughout the summer months and holidays.
These handbag essential wipes from Halo are amazing for use on holidays and particularly if you are going to any festivals over the summer. The range includes Eye Makeup Remover Pads, Deodorant Wipes, Toilet and Surface Wipes, Moist Toilet Tissue and Handy Hygienic Wipes. I love these handy wipes as they fit really easily in to even small bags and are perfect for holidays if like me, you end up taking too many toiletries and makeup…..and the luggage allowance is never enough. My favourites are the eye makeup remover wipes and also the handy hygienic wipes, I have a young daughter and I always take these on holiday to wipes hands when we are out and about.
Halo wipes are available at Tesco, Sainsburys, Spar, Superdrug and Boots stores.
Victoria Green Makeup Bags at Debenhams
I always like to get a new makeup/toiletry bag when I go on holiday and I love this new range from Victoria Green. The collection from British designer Victoria Green contains eight different beauty bags ranging in designs all based on the countryside, from spots and daisys to meadows and swallows.
I will be using this cute daisy print one (below) for my makeup when I go on holiday. I love the bold prints and bright summery colours and they also hold a surprising amount too!
The bags from Victoria Green are available at Debenhams and retail between £6 – £18 for a beauty bag.
Soft & Gentle 48hr Protection Anti Perspirant Deodorants
Soft & Gentle have relaunched their deodorants with a new revitalised range, featuring their hardest working formula which provides 48 hour protection. They have also introduced three new fragrances to the collection which includes Pear & Cottonflower, Orange Blossom & Grapefruit and Pink Grapefruit. They are all fresh summery fruity fragrances and my favourite is the Pear and Cottonflower scent! They are all very gentle on the skin, even the sprays and don’t irritate the underarm area at all like some deodorant sprays I have used in the past.
Available at most chemists and supermarkets (the Pink Grapefruit fragrance is exclusive to Asda.)
Wilkinson Sword Intuition Razor Sensitive Care
Another summer essential…razors to ensure my legs are ready for sundresses and shorts. The Intuition is a 3 in 1 razor which lathers, shaves and moisturises in one step. Again, perfect for cutting down on toiletries in luggage! It contains Natural Aloe and Vitamin E and is especially good for sensitive skin as the name suggests. I have found this razor to be really gentle whilst still being highly effective. I sometimes get red raised bumps on my legs after using some razors but this one is great as it is so gentle and leaves the skin very soft after use.
Wilkinson Sword Intuition Sensitive Care retails at £6.49 at Boots and other leading retailers.
Colgate Toothpaste – Max White One Optic
Although not strictly summer related, I had to include this new whitening toothpaste from Colgate, Max White One Optic. Teeth always tend to look a bit whiter when you have a tan, so after using this product they look even better! This toothpaste helps to give visibly whiter teeth after continued use, it contains optic brighteners which leave teeth looking brighter right from the first use. I have been using for a couple of weeks and definitely think my teeth look brighter than when I have used other whitening toothpastes.
Available from most supermarkets and Boots stores.
I’ve come to the end of my summer beauty special now. I hope I have given you some good recommendations for beauty products to use throughout the summer months and I would be interested to hear any comments you might have or any of your own summer beauty product must haves.
