Top 10 Summer Beauty Essentials


The warm weather has FINALLY arrived and hopefully it lasts for us. I am going on holiday to Spain next week so I thought I would share my beauty essentials and all the products that I will be taking away with me. I had to narrow it down to ten which is pretty hard for me because I own a heck of a lot. 


Body Shop Hawaiian Kuki Cream: This has got to be my favourite body lotion of all time. The scent is insane and it leaves the skin feeling soft and gives that glowing finish. It is so thick and it really moisturies the skin so if your sitting in the sun all day then this is perfect.

MAC Mineralise Skin Finish (Soft and Gentle) I am a sucker for a highlight and the MAC one is my all time favourite. I use this everyday throughout the year and leaves my skin with a glow and looking healthy. I use this on the tops of my cheekbones and down my nose where the sun naturally hits my skin.

YSL Black Opium: I got this fragrance for my birthday and I haven't stopped using this but I know this is going to be my summer scent. It has the most gorgeous floral scents with a hint of vanilla which is my favourite scent of all time.

Batiste Dry Shampoo: I say this time and time again but this product is a life saver. Whenever my hair needs a bit of refreshing or volume I turn to this gem. In the summer my hair underneath gets all greasy where I get hot from laying in the sum so a quick spritz of this and I'm good to go.

MAC Creme Cup Lipstick: This was my first MAC product I've ever bought and I still use it to death. It is the most gorgeous light pink nude shade so I love using this for nights out on the beach and it looks especially stunning when you have a tan.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF 30I used this product last year and I feel in love instantly. It leaves the skin feeling hydrated, moisturised and protects the skin from the sun. The product has the subtle smell of coconuts and always reminds me of holiday.

Liz Earle Skin Repair Light Moisturiser: After a day in the sun and applying sun cream and make up to my skin I always need to a good moisturiser. I turn to the Skin Repair in Light to really nourish my skin and leaving it feel moisturised and hydrated both day and night, 


Simple Cleansing Wipes: These really are a life saver especially if you don't want to carry too many products with you when going away. These wipes leave my skin feeling refreshed and get rid of stubborn make up even waterproof mascara. I try to not use these on a day to day basis but if I want to take my make up off quickly then I turn to these beauties. 

Garnier Ultimate Blend Sleek Restorer Mask: I love soaking my hair in a good mask especially after being in the sun all day which dries it out a lot. You can leave this  product on your hair for as little as a minute but I like to leave it on for about 5. This mask if for dry and frizzy hair and it leave the hair feeling sleek and soft,

Maybelline Bronze BB Cream: I only just discovered this product a week ago but I'm already in love. I use a BB cream whilst on holiday because it's light and I usually have a slight tan so I don't like using a lot of products on the skin. This BB cream leaves a slight bronzed glow to the skin but gives enough coverage for any blemishes.

What are your summer essentials?
