Summer Cosmetic Must Haves!!

Bioderma Photoderm Max Spray 

With UK temperatures reaching new heights, there’s never been a better time to integrate SPF application into your morning routine and the only product you’ll need is Bioderma’s Photoderm Max Spray with an SPF of 50+…meaning a little goes a long way. 

 Why choose Bioderma? The answer is simple, photoprotection. This is a biochemical process which allows our body to handle wrinkles and sun burn. Bioderma prides itself in their own cellular Bioprotection® patent and has formulated a lightweight, waterproof and hypoallergenic sunscreen. Plus, you don’t need to worry about breaking out as it is non-comedogenic and the product does not leave that white cast that we all hate! Bioderma Photoderm Max Spray SPF50+ 200ml, £17

Goldwell Dual Senses Ultra Volume Bodifying Dry Shampoo 

We should be forever grateful for the inventor of dry shampoo. Thanks to this life-saving creation, our time between hair wash days has been extended, however, this comes at a cost – the awful white residue many dry shampoos leave.  

After lots of trial and error, I have finally found a product that lets us lazy girls skip washes for 4-5 days but without the white cast left behind – Goldwell’s Dual Senses Ultra Volume dry shampoo.  

 Trust me when I say this stuff is magic in a bottle – easily portable, affordable, beautiful scent, volumizing and helps with one of the biggest beauty dilemmas women face – to wash or not to wash your hair today?  

 Greasy and lifeless hair…can’t relate (anymore) thanks to Goldwell.  Goldwell Dual Senses Ultra Volume Bodifying Dry Shampoo 150 ml £10.95 

 Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm

It is near impossible to live without a lip balm in the winter but this should be the same for the summer too and since you can never have too many lip balms…let me tell you about one that you need to invest in – Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Moisture Replenishing lip balm made with blue lotus wax. 

Firstly, who wouldn’t love the taste of a mixture of oils, waxes and butters which make your chapped lips feel heavenly and hydrated for hours on end. Thankfully the gloss look has come back into fashion with this product leaving your lips glossy, plumped and light pink. But most importantly, Clarins has created a formula using the blue lotus flower’s thin wax layer providing maximum nourishment to dry and damaged lips. 

Bye bye dehydrated chapped lips!  Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm 15ml, £16

TIGI Bed Head Queen Beech Salt Infused Texture Spray 

Beach waves are a timeless summer trend. Why? This style is feminine, laidback and sexy plus you don’t need to be on holiday to embrace them.  

You can become a beach goddess wherever you are with TIGI Bed Head’s Balinese sea salt infused spray which creates natural, long-lasting body and the enviable surfer look. Better yet, this fast-drying spray is formulated with UV protection to shield your scalp from harmful UV rays.   

Top tip: spray onto damn hair, tie into a loose braid, let it dry (or blowdry) and then undo the braid and separate the strands to achieve the perfect beach texture.  TIGI Bed Head Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray, £12.95
