1.   ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm

105g – £36.85

 

This cleansing balm really is a treat in a jar! I applied it onto my face, neck and décolleté when I was in the bath, and it just melted into my skin so beautifully and effortlessly, as it transformed into a rich cleansing oil. I like to use this as a mask, just because it feels so amazing on my skin and the smell is heavenly! My skin feels deeply nourished and soothed afterwards, and as a result, I’m now obsessed with using this as a little indulgent treat every bath time!

2.   Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon Night Gel-Cream

50ml – £75

I always like to invest in a night cream that really delivers, especially as our skin goes into repair mode overnight, I like to give it a helping hand! This product really optimises the natural recovery process, with key ingredients, including Tamarind Seed extract, French Lavender essential oil, with Sandalwood and Patchouli, Persian Silk Tree extract and Wu-Zhu-Yu Extract. As well as reducing signs of fatigue, this treatment gel-cream increases radiance, and also promotes a deep, restful sleep, which is definitely a winner for me!

3.   Liz Earle Superskin Eye Cream

15ml – £39.00

 

This soothing eye cream from Liz Earle’s Superskin range is perfect for summer. It’s formulated from proven plant-based ingredients, including their signature trio of nourishing plant oils, as well as antioxidant pomegranate fruit and green tea, which not only reduce the appearance of fine lines and eases any under-eye puffiness, it also delivers a beautiful fresh summer scent.

 

4.   TAN-LUXE Super Glow Hyaluronic Self Tan Serum

30ml – £35.00

 

Let’s face it, our great British weather is inconsistent to say the least, particularly during the summer months, and our hopes of achieving a subtle summer glow never quite go to plan! This serum not only contains hyaluronic acid (the key to smooth, flawless and hydrated skin), but it also delivers a sun-kissed glow at the same time! What’s not to love!?

 

5.   Kérastase Nutritive Masque Magistral

200ml – £29.05

There’s nothing I love more than when a hair mask really delivers! I have thick, course, balayaged hair which very regularly requires some TLC to keep it looking healthy. I’m the first to admit, I’m slightly addicted to hair products, and I absolutely love the Kerastase range. This mask is designed for dried out, thick hair, and as well as smelling absolutely divine, after leaving on for 5 minutes, it leaves my hair feeling unbelievably, smooth and soft, and the shine is real!

 

6.   Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir 30ml – £60.00

 

Following the huge success of her ‘Magic Cream’, Charlotte Tilbury has finally launched the long awaited, ground breaking ‘Magic Serum’ and it does not disappoint.  This potent, super-charged, crystal infused formula provides immediate hydrating effects, and addresses several common skin concerns. Amongst the many breakthrough ingredients, is Polyglutamic Acid, which is said to be 4x more hydrating than Hyaluronic Acid! Simply massage a few drops into clean skin morning and evening, before your moisturiser, to reveal brighter, hydrated and visibly younger looking skin.

7.   Gucci Bloom For Her Eau de Parfum

50ml – £62.24

Is there anything better than discovering a scent which perfectly encapsulates summer!? Envisioned as a thriving garden of flowers, this beautiful fragrance is created to unfold like its name. With a rich, white floral scent that transports to a colourful and diverse garden verdant with flowers and plants, this heavenly scent certainly offers serene moments of bliss.

 

8.   Benefit Badgal Bang Volumising Mascara

8.5g Black – £19.85

Mascara has been everything during lockdown. It’s safe to say I’ve been embracing the natural look whilst spending so much time at home and given my skin a much needed break, however mascara is always my go to product when I want to keep my look natural, but impactful at the same time, especially when a last minute Zoom call appears in my diary. I have a tried a lot of mascaras over the years, but I always go back to this one. It never fails to deliver a volumous, lifted and lengthened look, and I always get so many compliments.

 

9.   He-Shi Day to Day Gradual Tan

200ml – £15.50

 

I’m all about a gradual tan these days, after oh so many tanning disasters over the years! I love this 3 in 1 product, which not only acts as a gradual self-tanner, it can also be used to maintain an existing self-tan in between applications, and it’s also a fantastic moisturiser. In addition to this, the pleasant summer aroma is such a delight (no more underlying biscuit smell!)

10.                 Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Lip Oil Crystal Elixir 8ml- £28.00

 

Another gem from Charlotte Tilbury, this 2 in 1 product acts as a lip conditioner by day, and a lip mask by night. With clinically proven results, not only can you expect up to 24 hours of moisturisation, it can also visibly reduce the appearance of lip lines, and boost lip volume by up to 70% in 28 days! Simply massage and energise the lips with the rollerball applicator and allow the supercharged ingredients and lip care oils to infuse and work their magic!
