Summer Favourites

Every summer new products are brought out on the market and our skin senses start tingling and before we know it we have a huge amount of products we are using because the skin and body needs start changing.This summer for the first time I decided to actually get into a habit of trying and keeping a routine together with some products and here are some that I'm loving so far this summer.

1. Burt's Bees - Sensitive Daily Moisturising Cream
This was a product that I ended up receiving as part of a blog giveaway I won with blogosphere magazine and ended up loving. I suffer from super oily skin in the winter, autumn, spring and summer is when its worst of all. The daily moisturising cream, is made using softening cotton extract which helps to  replenish the skins outer layer and decrease the effects of potential irritants such as harsh soaps/cleansers. The rice extract moisturises and the aloe helps to soothe your skin.

I use this in the morning when I'm fresh faced and I absolutely love it as it doesn't leave my face feeling either dry or overly oily, it can sometimes use a bit of rubbing in so white streaks of cream aren't left on the skin but I can feel my skin angels thanking me every time a dollop hits my face. I have the most sensitive skin and mine has taken really well to this product, I couldn't recommend it enough.

2. Love Row Naturals - Body butter
I was lucky enough to receive some lovely Love Row Naturals products and I haven't gone a day without using them, literally. Even when I traveled down to Liverpool for a few days with my family for Sades graduation I took it with me when packing.

Love Row Naturals is a new skin, hair and body care brand created by the lovely Amaka and she's on to something amazing and big with these body butters because their all I use on my body. In fact I not only use the body butters on my body but also on my hair and face. When using on my face however I use the tiniest bit because it's so rich and moisturising and I have oily skin.

The body butters are the perfect product to use on your legs especially in the summer to give them a natural glow when the sun hits them, I use to use baby oil but have quickly swapped it out to use this instead and I already know in winter when I'm suffering from dry skin what I'll be using. Did I mention the fact they smell amazing? I'm not the biggest fan of lavender scents but as I continue to use the products the smell grows on me, also the products are more than affordable so what's not to love?

Barry M - Tahitian Body Oil
After seeing body oils sweeping the internet last summer I decided to finally give in and get some myself. I found some in Sephora when in Bordeaux and then in Body Shop but simply couldn't afford to part with my money at the time but I found this one when buying items for a giveaway and I'm so glad I picked up not one but two.

This body oil adds that sparkle to your skin on those hot summers day and I love it because it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy, just moisturised and fabulous. So if you're looking for a way to give yourself an extra glow beyond wearing highlighter, get yourself some of this and thank me later when people are constantly complementing your legs. I just wish the British summer would be more consistent so I could use this more, mother nature what's good?

What are your summer favourites or products that you can't live without in summer?
Until the next post,
