If you are anything like me and would much rather sleeping in than making it to a 9.30am waxing or tanning appointment, then this post is for you. These are my 3 products go to products that will make you feel prepared for summer without having to leave your bedroom:
So it’s a sunny Saturday morning you have slept in again, you’re are meant to be at a beach BBQ in 40mins, you also favoured drinking wine and watching rom-coms the night before instead of tending to your bikini line. Enter the Schick Hydro Silk Trimstyle Kit, with a standard razor on one end and a buzzy trimmer on the other. The trimmer is fantastic for the bikini line, it trims the hair so close and neatly to the skin that you can use it in between waxes or if you are one of the fortunate sparsely hair people instead of waxing. It is my new must have, it is never leaving my toiletries bag and my must have summer beauty tool, definitely worth a try if you like me are very lazy with hair removal.
Spray tanning seems like a never-ending spiral of up keep and scares the hell out of me TBH, but we have all had that horror of putting on a leg baring dress for a wedding or event and your ghostly white legs scare the hell out of you. Gradual tans take forever to develop and I always forget an area which then becomes a very noticeable pale patch of skin. Instant wash off tans are the way to go, Fake Bake’s Faux Glo is a genius invention – it comes in an aerosol can which makes for a super quick application, the colour comes up instantly with only a small amount of rubbing and blending will give you a flawless tan. Also it washes off completely in the shower, so it wont ruin your favourite sheets.
FLAWLESS YET SUN PROTECTED SKIN
Forgetting to apply sunscreen in the morning is the worst especially on a sunny weekend when brunch turns into a swim and then a picnic and before you know it you’re arriving home in the evening with a burnt sore face. The new Ultraceuticals genius Ultra UV Protective Daily Mineral Defence SPF 50+ it is a tinted self colour adjusting formula that will match to any skin tone super protective tinted moisturizer. It is basically a 3 in 1 moisture, sunscreen & light coverage. Perfect for a quick application while you are running out the door to enjoy many wines in the summer sun.
There is nothing better than a hilarious Summer page turner, last year I demolished Mindy Kaling’s ‘Is everyone hanging out without me? (and other concerns) in a weekend and it had me LOL’ing to myself on my beach towel. It is easy to read and relate to, 5 out of 5 stars.
