As we are now well into May and Summer is fast approaching I thought I would share with you my getting ready for summer picks. After a very long winter, Summer means freedom, bright fashion, gorgeous fragrances and fun! I can walk the dog wearing leggings and a T-shirt, instead of a bulky jacket, scarf, gloves and looking like Nanuk of the North! You can use products that smell like summer, Coconut, Gardenia and Monoi. You can wear brighter colours, take off the boots and get the feet out! You can lighten your hair, have a golden glow, and paint your toes! Whats not to love about that!
I am now going to share with you the products that I find give me that summer feeling, they suit the season and the demands of what summer brings. None of these products breaks the bank, in fact, some are a real bargain!
*German YouTuber Bibi from BibisBeautyPalace has launched her own range of Vegan delicious smelling body products. the range called Bilou is available at Superdrug and is the bargain price of £3.99 there are more fragrances coming so there is a fragrance that will suit everyone. If you have kids and teenagers you will want to hide this and keep for yourself! My first one is Bilou Shower Foam Pink Melon 200 ml. This is utterly gorgeous and does smell like fresh watermelon. It foams up lovely on the skin, and the whole shower smells fantastic! I also recommend using it as a shaving cream too, as that worked brilliantly. It is such a happy smell, and delicately fragrances the skin after the shower. I can guarantee this will put a smile on your face, and give you those summer vibes.
Bilou Cream Foam Cotton Candy 150 ml. I was very intrigued by this product, and let me explain why it is a body moisturiser but it comes out like a thick foam. It is a gorgeously scented body moisturiser, it smells just like the name states a sweet caramel candy. I really loved the smell, and loved how soft my skin was and gently fragranced. This is also £3.99
Nivea Caring Love Sunshine Shower Gel. If you prefer a really bubbly shower gel this is the one for you! Firstly the smell of this is magnificent. I love it so much, it smells heavenly, it smells like Nivea suncream and Gardenia, and well just Summer really! It really gives you that summer vibe. The luxurious lather made my skin feel and smell so refreshed and soft as it contains Aloe Vera which is perfect for holidays if you have a little sunburn. The smell lingered on my skin for hours after. I truly am in love with this! It lathers really well and a small amount goes a long way and makes your skin smell amazing. The vibrant packaging is perfect. I highly recommend this product, as who doesn’t want to feel like they are on permanent holiday, even for only 20 minutes! You won’t want to get out of the shower! this is only £1 yes a £1.00.
Maui Moisture Revive & Hydrate Shea Butter Shampoo & Conditioner
Ok so the serious bit it contains: Aloe Vera Juice, Coconut Water, Creamy Shea Butter, Rich Coconut Oil, Pure Macadamia Oil
It Also happens Vegan-Friendly and FREE FROM; Sulfated surfactants, Silicone, Artificial Colours, Mineral Oils, ALES
Can I just say this shampoo & conditioner is fantastic, I have bleach in my fine hair so it does get dry and knotty, well, this is like a heavenly kiss, it makes my hair feel so soft and clean, it smells amazing, it is moisturised, shiny and light. It is not heavy or greasy like some coconut products are. I utterly love this and to be a great sulfate free shampoo at such a great price, I highly recommend you try it, they have a few different shampoos in the range I have also got and tried the Maui Moisture coconut Milk for dry hair too and it’s just as fabulous! my hair smells amazing and I have had comments asking what I have used. its £8.99 each but Boots do usually do deals on it and I have bought them for £5 each.
Stripe Bright Good Vibes T-shirt
I am over the moon I bought this, the photos on Next don’t show you how sunny and bright it actually is! sorry, Next I think my photo is better! Who doesn’t want to be bright, cheery and sunny when the weather is lovely! This top fits true to size and is a lovely fit, the t-shirt is long enough that it does not ride up and I love the watermelon pink edging on the neckline! The material like most of Next t-shirts feels lovely and this is going to get a lot of wear this summer. And at £16 you can’t go wrong.
Red is one of the colours this year and so is the cat eye shape. These are by ASOS, I loved these when I saw them as they just so cool and on trend! For £14.00 I was in, as I am always scratching or losing them, so why spend a fortune on a trend!
These are back this year as a must have, I have two pairs one are red wedges from M&S and one pair pictured here that are flat in Rose Gold from Marisota catalogue. I love espadrilles, they never really go out of fashion, they go with everything and are so comfy but chic! They are a staple Summer shoe, so come on get your espadrilles out! I have a link up for them in my shop.
I love the St Tropez gradual shower tan, my life is pretty busy, so this works perfectly! I never really used to use fake tan as I hate the biscuit smell! I bought this as it doesn’t have that fake tan smell thank goodness! you just massage it in with big circular movements. Leave on for 3 minutes, wash it off and then hey presto in 8 hours you have a nice soft golden tan. Usually £14.50 on offer on Look Fantastic for £9.70
Nars Super Orgasm Lipgloss
Its an oldie but a goodie, I love this is in summer, I think when you have a nice glow you look so healthy, and this is such a lovely pink that makes your teeth appear whiter, and the rosy glow gives you that healthy look.
I hope you like my selection, all products are in my shop so you can shop them with ease!
Let me know what are your summer staples, or have you tried any of these already?
*All products I bought myself bar the Bilou products which were gifted to me.*
