August 10, 2013


Meet my 2013 ultimate Summer favourites. Whether it's skincare, make up or perfume, I am always attracted to products that have that certain 'something' that reminds you of Summery days laying around in the sun, wearing a beautiful dress and listening to Ben Howard in the garden. For me, this is always to do with scent. I am constantly reminded of long since gone memories through scent and as it is a key part of my career, I can't help always being attracted to fragrance. For this post, I have picked just 10 products that I have loved using this Summer, which was seriously tough and most of them have that Summer scent.

1. Caudalie Divine Oil 100ml £27.00 c/o

This has got to be the most luxurious and exotic smelling dry body oil I have ever tried. With a gorgeous glass bottle and a rich moisturising oil, that leaves your skin looking healthy and glowing, this is my favourite way to quickly spritz and moisturise my skin. Read my full review HERE.

2. Mac Cosmetics Lady Danger Lipstick £14.00

There is no doubt about it, I LOVE this lipstick! If you are a regular reader of our blog you will know that I mention this lip shade quite a bit! It is a fantastic orangey red that looks great in the sun and almost with every outfit. I am huge fan! Pop lip for life! Read my full review HERE.

3. Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water 200ml £16.00 c/o

I only have just recently posted my review of this beautiful and delicate floral water from Melvita, read it HERE. To be honest, I don't think I would have survived through this heatwave without it, therefore it has become my ultimate saviour. I mainly use this spray for keeping my face and body cool in the heat, which you may worry about the water drying our your skin but it actually does the opposite and hydrates. The scent leaves you feeling fresh and smelling of roses.

4. Ioma Body Pro line Soothing gel for legs 150ml £55.00 c/o

Ioma is a new and extremely luxurious beauty line available only in Harrods in London, this beautiful light cooling leg gel, has saved me from many evenings after work suffering from tired and heavy legs. The gel contains active ingredients that helps to refresh and relive the sensation of tired legs, with a strong uplifting scent of peppermint. The gel absorbs quickly and soothes instantly. Although, this gel is expensive, it has really helped relax me in the evenings after a tough day and keep me cool in the heat.

5.Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray 200ml £7.19

A little new purchase, to add to my collection of sea salt spray texturising sprays. The reason why I love this Toni & Guy spray more than the others I have tried, is the scent. This spray has a delicate salon like fragrance that leaves your hair smelling incredible! Along with creating a fab beach look too!

6. Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensee Cologne 200ml £115.00 c/o

Ladies & Gents meet my Summer perfume! I always find fragrances smell so different on my skin than other peoples. A few fragrances I wear seem to smell powdery and musky so this fragrance is my ideal scent. With notes of jasmine, vanilla, vetiver and oak moss on base notes of amber and oak wood, this powdery vanilla scent smells divine. I love it!

7. Rimmel London Salon Pro Nail varnish in 500 Peppermint 12ml £4.49

Ever since buying this shade, I have almost applied and re-applied as I can't get enough of it! The formula of this nail varnish range, impressed me! The nail varnish leaves a glossy gel-like finish which is fairly hardy surface that doesn't chip that easily. This shade is a cool minty blue/green that looks great in the sun and I love it!

8. Melvita Organic Rose Nectar Fresh Micellar Water 200ml £15.50 c/o

Oh how I do love a quick and easy Micellar water of a morning! I have now tried quite a few on the market, apart from the beauty blogger cult classic Bioderma but to be honest, I am pretty sure this is better! With a 3 in 1 formula, this water is refreshing, hydrating and removes all traces of dirt and grime at the beginning or end of the day. With a delicate scent of rose, I love this water as it leaves my skin feeling cleansed, soft and uplifted.

9. Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Body Polish 200ml £22.50

This scent has got to be one of Jess' favourites. But hehe I have stolen Kiehl's Body polish in my favourites, as I love it! Nothing beats a good old exfoliation in the shower and with small dried Loofah beads and ingredients such as honey and soy milk, this scrub leaves your skin super soft. Practically glowing! Hello prepped summer skin. Read my full review HERE.

10. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector 50ml £33.00 c/o

Oh where do I start! Maybe it is best if you read my full review HERE on this one, as I could go on about it for days. A multi-purpose shimmering tube of goodness, is my favourite product from Becca's make up range, as it makes my skin look luminous and healthy. I have been using this fab Skin Perfector mainly as a highlighter but as the weather starts to turn back into winter, I am pretty sure I will be mixing this gem in with my foundation to wash away the winter blues!

Hope you liked all my Summer favourites! What are your favourites?
