Sunday Round-Up: Summer Beauty Products I Love

Hey Lovelies!

Today I am sharing my Sunday round-up of stellar summer beauty products I love. Guaranteed to have a forever place in your heart (and bathroom) too!

1.For Gorgeously Shiny Summer Tresses Choose:  Moroccanoil® Glimmer Shine, £19.95 (100ml), www.lookfantastic.com

These days, the general rule of thumb is shop vegan if at all possible – making this natural ingredient formula a winner, winner, (without the chicken dinner). Some oil makes hair feel like you’ve accidentally slathered on superglue instead, but this is almost weightless. Combined within the little oil-spray treat are antioxidants, argan oil and vitamins. These offer serious nourishment and protection for your hair, whilst simultaneously reflecting light. The outcome is gorgeous beachy textured locks and some generous shine to boot.

2.For Those Dreaded Pores Choose: Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask, £31.92, www.amazon.co.uk

The world appears to be spinning that bit faster and it’s because people are literally falling over themselves to get hold of the multi-award-winning mask by Auzzie brand Sand & Sky. I finally got my hands on this amazing product and let me just say – WOW!

With summer here those pesky pores are in their element, and we want rid! No sweat hunnies – just slap on a little of the pink clay mask and within minutes your complexion is brighter, clearer and pores…what pores? We know the existence of pores cannot be banished but their imprint can certainly be reduced. So, what can you expect? Expect them to appear reduced and smaller, expect your skin to be thoroughly detoxified and clearer and expect some beautiful compliments. Hooray!

3.For That Summer Glow Choose: Tan-Luxe Super Glow Hyaluronic Self-Tan Serum, £35 (30ml), www.lookfantastic.com

Are you looking for a self-tanner that makes your skin look that extra bit special? Yes, this does contain dihydroxyacetone in order to provide the tan (minus the skin cancer risk). However, its formula also offers a surge of hydrating hyaluronic acid and a plethora of naturally-sourced antioxidants and nutrients. The result is spectacular anti-aging, hydrating and nourishing qualities absorbed into your skin, achieving nothing less than an inspirational glow. Easily absorbed, buildable and lightweight – the perfect companion for your summer handbag.

The Best Vegan Dry Shampoos Under £11

Hey Lovelies!

Upgrading your beauty routine to include vegan products has never been easier. Dry shampoos are an absolute Godsend and can save your look (and smell) on the days the alarm breaks (ahem), forcing you to leave the house looking less than your best. Quick question: Why is it those days that we bump into the hot guy we haven’t seen for weeks?

Thus, I have reviewed and compiled a list of my favourite vegan dry shampoos. Read on:

1.Naturtint Dry Shampoo, £9.99 (20g), www.hollandandbarrett.com

I LOVE this vegan and cruelty-free dry shampoo. Naturtint has combined natural ingredients such as rice and barley starch that absorb any excess oil, whilst really making it look and feel silky soft. My hair frizz is greatly reduced, making it easily manageable.

Better yet, this product also contains oat extract which offers moisturising properties for the hair and scalp! Naturtint achieves a lovely fresh scent that is not overpowering, and you will be pleased to know you won’t be discovering any nasty white flaky residue. Phew.

2.Love Beauty And Planet Volume And Bounty Dry Shampoo, £6.99, www.ocado.com

This has to be one of the best vegan dry shampoos. Not only does it tick all the vital boxes (no white residue, absorbs oil, freshens and softens), but this super-light formula seems to instantly vanish into the hair with minimal effort required. One of the best things about this dry shampoo is that it transforms fine hair, giving some much-appreciated volume. Expect to breathe in a gorgeously uplifting citrus scent for added boost! Also available is their Green Tea Dry Shampoo for particularly greasy locks.

3.Bleach London Too Posh To Wash Dry Shampoo, £6, www.cultbeauty.co.uk

There’s no need to wish for your fairy Godmother to appear and magic your hair woes away when you have this cruelty-free and vegan dry shampoo. The formula instantly transforms your hair into beautiful locks that smell super-clean and fresh. Prepare to feel pampered.

4.Zabana Essentials Dry Shampoo, £13.95, www.zabanaessentials.com

Zabana Essentials provide 3 beautiful vegan dry shampoos: Dry Glow Shimmery,  Lavender Citrus Mint and Sage Blood Orange. My personal favourite has to be the Dry Glow Shimmery as it gives some serious shine. This product combines superior natural ingredients such as essential oils, minerals and plant extracts, to further strengthen and protect your transformed tresses. I am totally smitten with its irresistible coconut scent (to the point where I haven’t washed my hair for 3 days – gross, I know).

Hair Primers Guaranteed To Defy The Strongest Of Heatwaves

Hey Lovelies!

I hope you are all enjoying the continuing miracle that is this UK heatwave. Whilst the majority of us are slapping on extra primer in an effort to prevent our makeup melting down our faces (causing us to look like a waxwork reject), many of us still are not applying hair primer. In this weather we really need the hair primer.

The beauty Gods have bestowed upon us hair primers of which can treat a whole array of haircare needs. Primers thoroughly condition, hydrate and protect – ensuring your locks remain shiny and super soft whilst enjoying SAS-like protection against these extreme (but much-loved) sun rays. Say goodbye to dehydrated, frizzy and sun-damaged strands and hellloooo to gorgeousness. Check out the best:

Better yet, this ‘invisible’ spray is practically undetectable and ensures your locks are detangled, silky and effectively protected from UV damage. This product enables fast and easy styling, too.  #hairgoals!

 2.L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Original Oil, £12.75 (100ml), look fantastic.com

(suitable for all hair types)
