Must-Have Summer Holiday Beauty Essentials
When I think of Summer holiday the first thing coming up in my mind is endless sandy beach and lots of sun. And when I think of Summer holiday beauty essentials, I think of good skincare. I like to be prepared with beauty finds that protect and moisturise my skin during those long sunny days.
Summer Holiday Beauty Essentials
I tend to skip heavy makeup during my holiday but I make sure I treat my skin with extra care when the heat is on…
Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defence SPF 50
The perfect holiday getaway can be described as me relaxing on the beach with glass of refreshing cocktail and getting a sexy sun-kissed tan. But being exposed on the sun for that long means extra skin protection. My go-to moisturiser has to be Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defence with SPF 50. This is the most lightweight moisturiser with hight SPF I have ever come across. Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defence lotion is oil free and does not leave a white cast on the skin which is very rare for such a hight SPF. This lotion gives the desire sunscreen protection without feeling tacky or heavy. An amazing holiday and beach essential!
REN Satin Perfection BB Cream SPF 15
As you can see I am all about UVB and UVA protection during Summer holiday. I want my skin to be healthy, glowing and bronze looking. This is why REN Satin Perfection BB Cream with SPF 15 is worth packing and flying with me on holiday. I have raved about this product so many times on my blog and I still can’t get enough of it. REN Satin Perfection BB Cream is silicone free product with colour adaptive technology. It is very lightweight and just blended with my fingers gives an amazing luminosity and healthy look to my skin.
This true multi-function cream provides flawless coverage that banishes imperfections, gives SPF and anti-oxidant protection while photo-rejuvenation technology offers a toning, firming, anti-ageing effect.
The only downside of this product is that is made to adjust to wide range of light to medium skin tones and it wouldn’t be suitable for women of colour.
Sephora Kiss Me Lip Balm
What is Summer without a good moisturising lip balm? Sephora Kiss Me lip balm in Pink Bubblegum is my new favourite. It leaves a hint of baby pink tint on the lips and it smells delish… The range contains 7 shades and they are all very moisturising and perfect beach essential.
Goldentini Bronzing Body Oil and Glaze
Hey, don’t be fooled by the name of this product. It is oil, but non-greasy oil and it is so quickly absorbing… It is actually a tinted body oil with slight pearlesent finish. Goldentini Bronzing Body by Templespa is described as a lightweight skin glaze that brightens up the skin and enhance an existing tan. I use this oil all over my body and it instantly gives me an amazing Summer sheen without being greasy or sticky. It nourishes my skin, my complexion looks healthier and sun kissed. Goldelini bronzing oil and glaze smells divine. It contain an aromatic blend of vetiver, mimosa, bitter orange, honey, green florals, sandalwood, oakmoss and sweet musks. Definitely one of my must-have summer holiday beauty essentials to glam up my days and nights out.*Must-have summer holiday makeup and beauty essentials.Click To Tweet
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray
This hair product I use only during Summer to give my hair beach, crunchy effect. I know there are so many drugstore alternatives out there but I decided to take the plunge and go for this exact one. This salty based spray is great for slightly wavy, curly hair. But girls with straight hair, like me, wouldn’t regret it too. Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray is great for fine hair and you probably wonder why… I usually spray the product into my roots and it instantly gives me texture and volume. For best results, I spray it into damp hair, twist it into top knot and leave it for few hours. After I let my hair loose, my hair looks voluminous and it has slightly beach-y, wavy effect.
Ladival Sun Protection
Sun protecting sprays and lotions are without a doubt one of the must-have holiday beauty essentials when you travel to a hot country. I recently spent few days in Barcelona and Ladival Spray SPF 15 was my skin saver during that time. I took it with me to the beach, on the tour bus and even when I was exploring the narrow streets of Barcelona. Ladival sun protection products are amazing! They are preservatives, perfumes, colorants, fats, paragons and PEG emulsifiers free. Ladival sun creams and sprays are perfect for sensitive or oily skin.
Most standard sun creams help to protect your skin against UV-A and UV-B rays and Ladival does too, but these make up just 7% of the sun’s rays. Infrared-A makes up a further 30% of the sun’s rays. So with Ladival’s advanced Infrared-A protection system (IR-D Infrared Defence™) you get protection against four times more of the sun’s damaging rays, compared to standard UV-A and UV-B sun protection products.
As per my review, I am very pleased with the results Radival Spray SPF 15 gives me and I will definitely be taking Ladival Sun Protection Kids SPF 50 for my little 5 years old munchkin when we travel to our next hot destination in two weeks time.*
Maybelline Super Stay Nail Polish in 470 Orange Punch
This is one of my favourite Summer nail polish shades. It is bright orange-red. It kinda gives a retro vibe and it looks amazing on all skin tones. Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days collection has wide range of shades and they are all amazing quality. 470 Orange Punch I love during Summer time and I am sure you would love it too.
The New Summer Fragrance by Marc Jacobs- Cotton
I am obsessed with this scent…Oh, I am giving it a sniff right now… It is described as a clean, comforting scent, capturing the ease and simplicity of Summer. This Marc Jacob floral woody musk fragrance is crisp, green and fresh and features notes of bergamot, jasmine, cotton accords and musk.
