This weeks beauty picks has been one of our favorites. This week I got our digits on some lovely natural products to help make the beginning of your summer a fabulous one!
As always, I have forked out my own cold cash to test out these products, so if I’m not happy you will know about it. Also I have provided links to places where you can buy these products. If you choose to click and buy through us, you will help fund my addiction to cheap coffee and shoes.
Yes To Cucumbers Facial Wipes
At the end of a hard day sunbathing or slogging it in the office it can be a pain to remove your makeup. The heat can get to you, tiredness takes over and the last thing you want to do is pull all of the bottles out to get your face off again. These wipes are great at the end of the day when you just can’t be bothered. They have aloe vera and green tea extract to help keep your skin hydrated. They smell so fresh and clean! Simply wipe and go, what’s not to love?
Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Face Masks
Montagne Jeunesse are changing their name to 7th Heaven which is pretty fitting for these products. My favorite face mask has to the Dead Sea Mud mask. It pulls the toxins from your pores to leave your skin looking so good, you will think you have been airbrushed. This is great for the end of the week to help get your skin fresh and clean before you have to pile the makeup on again. The Peel Off Passion is another favourite, mainly because it is fun! When used properly it does pull the rubbish (and blackheads!) out from your pores. The dead sea mud mask is pretty difficult to find now, maybe due to the rebranding, but the coffee mud mask works just as well.
Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Wash
Showering is important but some products can strip your skin and remove the protective oils. This body wash has natural ingredients which help protect the skin but still removes the sweat and nastiness that causes body odour. This is so hydrating you can even skip your moisturizer after the shower if you are in a rush. I love this body wash because of all the natural goodies that are packed in it. And I have to attempt, this is not the first (or the last) time that I have used this.
Vita Coco Coconut Oil
We love love love this! This is multipurpose jar of awesome. First, you can cook with it. Great. But you don’t care about that! You want to know how to use it as a beauty product. The coconut oil comes as a solid block in the jar but it melts in the heat of your hand. You can use it to soothe sunburn. If your hair is feeling dry, soothe some of this over it and it will hydrate it really quickly. And you can use it on skin. My favourite way is to use it on my feet. Last thing at night, smooth some oil over your feet and pop a pair of trainer socks on. The next morning you will have lovely tooties. Cracked heels will be a thing of the past.
English Laundry No. 7 for Her
This is my new favourite scent for the summer! It has my two favourite things, fruity and musk in one bottle. This is the ladies various from the original No7 for Men (which smells just as yummy) so there is no need to steal your other halfs bottle now. The smell lasts for ages so you don’t need to use half the bottle in one day to keep the scent. I could still smell it on my jumper when I went to wash it a few days later. If that isn’t saying power, I don’t know what is. Although I only got my mitts on a sample of this, there was enough in it for two weeks wear. And I will be getting a full size bottle!
