Summer Makeup Base

Summer Makeup Base

During the summer months, I don't necessarily ease up on the amount of makeup products I use; rather I reach for products that leave a more natural and fresh finish to the skin. And over the last month, I’ve found myself using five products, all of which are easy to wear, effortless to apply and help to create the perfect summer makeup base.

MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream £24.50
Post base I like to apply a little MAC Strobe Cream, which for those of you who don’t know is a moisturiser fully loaded with vitamins and iridescent particles. Now, I may be a little late to the party on this one, but this stuff is the ultimate quick fix. I like to apply a small amount all over my face, avoiding my nose and my somewhat flat, dull complexion is instantly illuminated. 

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream £26.00
I very rarely wear foundation during the summer (I don't fancy melting makeup). So instead I opt for something with a lightweight coverage like the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream. Not only does this base allow my skin to breathe, it also has a SPF of 30, which is a big bonus. This gel cream evens out my skin tone and leaves a lovely healthy glow. On seriously steamy days, I've been adding a light dusting of powder (to stop things looking so sweatyesque), using either my bareMinerals Original Foundation, which also offers a little extra coverage, or the Hourglass Ambient Light Powder In Diffused, which adds a little extra luminescence. 

Bourjois Bronzing Primer £9.99
The product that’s been helping me to bronze believably is the Bourjois Bronzing Primer. I’ve had this product tucked away in my collection for quite some time and I can’t believe I hadn’t tried it sooner! Dubbed as a dupe for the Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base (primarily due to the fact it’s the only drugstore alternative), this bronzing mousse can be worn alone, under, or on top of your base. I like to buff a small amount onto the points of my face where the sun naturally hits (forehead, nose, cheeks and chin) after I’ve applied my bareMienrals Complexion Rescue. It warms up my complexion, smoothing over my skin and further helps to even out my skin tone. 

Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Cream £16.00
Don’t be intimidated by the Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Creams they are b-e-a-u-tiful! I have the shade ‘Gerbera’ which is a very pigmented punchy peachy colour, but once applied looks ever so natural. So I don’t over apply the product (which is easily done) I like to I warm up the product on the back of my hand and then use my ring finger to tap the colour onto my cheeks upwards along the cheekbones. Due to its creamy texture, it blends beautifully and adds a little moisture, leaving a sheeny (dewy like) finish, without feeling sticky or tacky on the skin. It’s perfect at awakening and brightening my complexion and lasts incredibly well. 

Benefit Watt's Up! Soft Focus Highlighter For Face £24.50
To optimise dewiness I like to add a highlighter to the tops of my cheekbones and to achieve this I’ve been wearing Benefit’s Watt’s Up! Soft Focus Highlighter. The champagne cream stick appeared way back here on BBA and is one of my all time favourite highlighters (besides the ridiculous sponge applicator). It applies smoothly onto the skin and the creaminess makes it effortless to blend with my fingers. Its finish is far glossier than the likes of a powder highlighter and it offers a gorgeous glow, that’s super flattering on the skin. 

What's your current summer makeup base routine? 


Mini Feel Unique Haul & First Impressions

Mini Feel Unique Haul & First Impressions

It goes without saying I didn't need any more makeup. But after spending the morning catching up on YouTube videos and scrolling through my Bloglovin’ feed, I felt a sudden urge to spend and soon after I found myself online (having found a discount code) at feelunique.com filling my basket with beauty products and checking out £41.22 later...

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner In Intense Black £13.00
Come autumn/winter liquid liner is my thing, I wear it day in and day out. But finding the right product to keep my feline flicks in place has been somewhat of a makeup mission. Although I’ve been after the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner for sometime, I’m yet to make a Sephora order. So in the meantime I thought I’d try the much-coveted Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. With a thin felt tip nib and a waterproof formula, this eyeliner boasts potential. However, on first application, although pigmented and easy to apply along the lash line, the tip of the nib has frayed and I presume has been damaged in the lid, making it beyond impossible to create feline flicks. Maybe I have a faulty product? But it goes without saying; I’m a little disappointed. What’s your favourite eyeliner? 

That’s right I’m guilty of picking up yet another coral toned lipstick. Very much a spur of the moment purchase the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick In ‘Streak' is a welcomed addition to my ever growing lipstick collection. Described as a ‘coral pink’, this lipstick from Urban Decay has wonderful colour payoff, leaving a creamy shine on the lips. The lightweight formula is easy to wear and instantly brightens my complexion and the packaging doesn’t disappoint either. I can’t believe I hadn’t bought one sooner.

Very much a Lily Pebbles enabled purchase. The Stila Aqua Glow Watercolour Blush is unlike any blush I own. Stila famous for their cream blushers has thrown a new blush into the mix with a water based, gel formula. And this gold, peachy pink blush is certainly one of a kind. Encased in a little pot with a gold lid, the mesh-touch dispenser is of a similar design to the Make Up For Ever HD Powder. When applied it feels weightless and instantly adds luminosity to the skin. 

Have you tried any of these products?


Worth The Hype? St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion

St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion
Fake tan and water are usually a no go, so I was obviously intrigued when I heard about St. Tropezs newest innovation, a unique gradual fake tan designed to be applied in the shower, on wet skin! It's no surprise that since it’s release, the St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion has become St. Tropez’s fastest selling product to date, but is it worth the hype?

To be honest it all sounded a little too good to be true, a patent pending formulation that activates on clean, wet skin, in just three minutes?! But being the beauty addict I am, I hunted high and low for a bottle of the stuff, which admittedly proved a little difficult. I dragged my boyfriend around numerous Boots stores and ended up buying a bottle online instead. 

The in shower lotion is packed with 100% natural bronzing agents (paraben, sulphate and phthalate-free) and is very easy to apply. Following my usual shower routine, I turn off the shower and apply the lotion to wet skin in circular motions. The creamy formula feels moisturising and lathers nicely, gliding evenly over my skin. I then wash my hands and stand butt naked for all of 3 minutes. After the 3 minutes are up, I simply rinse it off with warm water. Now keep in mind this is a gradual tan, if you want to step out the shower looking like you’ve spent the last 2 weeks in the Bahamas, then this  fake tan won’t be for you (maybe St. Tropez will release a deeper shade?). However, after a couple of applications a nice streak-free bronzed glow developed. And my pasty pins couldn’t of been more grateful for the post holiday tan top up! However, I do find that depending on how much you apply, you can be left smelling like a cooking biscuit. But it’s not too offensive. 

Overall, the St. Topez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion (£14.50) is ideal for first time tanners and those with paler skin tones. It eliminates both the mess and fear out of fake tanning and develops so subtly that you can’t go wrong. For a fast and easy way to get a safe glow, the 3 minutes of naked coldness are totally worth it.

Beauty Product Empties #3

Beauty Product Empties #3
I’m feeling very pleased with myself this morning as I introduce the 3rd instalment of my beauty product empties here on BBA. I've continued to restrain myself from splurging in the aisles of Boots and as a result I’ve been finishing beauty products far more frequently. So it’s about time I give you the lowdown on what I’ve finished and let you know if they are worthy of a repurchase.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Body Wash £6.00
The Body Shop Tea Tree range is by far my favourite of the Body Shop’s offerings. Along with my trusty Tea Tree Oil, the Body Shop Tea Tree Body Wash is a product I frequently repurchase. The gel body wash is my go-to for removing post workout grime and helps to keep any pesky body blemishes at bay. For best lathering results, I like to squeeze a little onto my body polisher and work all over my body. You can read more about The Body Shop Tea Tree Range here. 

Champneys Spa Indulgence Exotic Retreat Shower Cream £8.00
I’m sad to say I have finally come to the end of my Champneys Spa Shower Cream. Featured in my May Beauty Favourites, this shower cream containing coconut milk and mango butter cleansers, leaves my skin soft to touch and smells simply divine. It lathers up well, with or without a body polisher and has helped to calm my Keratosis Pilaris, which has been at rife in current heat wave here in the UK. It goes without saying I will be picking up another bottle. 

Champneys Spa Indulgence Distant Shores Body Scrub £10.00
Having been impressed with the Champneys Spa Shower Cream & Body Butter, I soon after purchased the body scrub and I wasn’t left disappointed. Unlike other body scrubs I have tried, it has a gel-like texture and doesn’t leave an oily residue on the skin. I like that it isn’t too abrasive - it’s just right. It smells yummy, which is down to it’s blend of grapefruit, lemon and orange peel oils and mango and passion fruit extracts (*thumbs up*). Another product to add to my Boots shopping list! 

Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo And Conditioner £42.25
Come payday I will be gritting my teeth as I treat myself to full sized Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo & Conditioner. I’m hooked. Not only on the scent, but the fact this stuff really works. Moroccan oil offers volume from the roots without weighing it down. It’s also super nourishing and leaves my hair more manageable. It is by far the best shampoo and conditioner I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my shower with. 

The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil £10.00
Bad packaging aside, The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil is one to try this month. Massaged onto dry skin, this cleanser turns into a milky oil, treating and cleansing the skin. Its effortless and inexpensive and my favourite drugstore cleanser to date. Read my full review here

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Power Serum £22.50
Thanks to Sali Hughes I have found the product to battle skin dehydration. One pump onto cleansed skin does the trick. It immediately takes away that tight feeling, leaving my skin plumper and visibly smoother. It can be used alone, or before moisturiser and yes, I instantly bought another bottle. It has achieved holy-grail status in my skincare lineup! You can read my full review here

Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water £4.49
Here in the UK we’re now spoilt for choice when choosing micellar water. Near enough every skincare brand offers cleansing water and with that in mind, I decided to try something new. I had high hopes for the Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water. And unfortunately I was left a little disappointed. Not only is the product overpriced costing £4.49 for 200ml, it didn’t remove my makeup as well as the likes of the Garnier Micellar Water. Whilst making my way through this bottle (rather quickly) I opted to use the ALDI 3 in 1 Facial Cleansing Wipes, which I much preferred.

Holiday Beauty Favourites

Holiday Beauty Favourites
Originally this post was named ‘5 Holiday Favourites’, but after rifling through my luggage since my return from Rhodes, I realised I had a little more than 5 favourites, plus a book that I simply couldn’t not include...

Eylure Pro-Lash Dylash Dark Brown £9.49
Prior to my holiday I toyed with the idea of getting my brows HD’d. But I was feeling a little reluctant to splash out £30 on my eyebrows (I’ve had this treatment before). So instead I opted for a quick brow thread at the expense of £6.00 and then picked up the Eylure Pro-Lash Dylash for £9.49 at my local Boots. And I couldn’t of been happier with the results. It was easy to apply, long lasting and not once did I fill my brows in whilst away. 

Avène Thermal Water Spray £3.15-£10.00
Unfortunately whilst on holiday I got plagued by prickly heat. Prickly heat is an itchy rash of small, raised red spots and let me tell you, it wasn’t nice! It's common in hot, humid conditions and my body clearly wasn’t prepared for the 35C heat. I didn’t let it spoil my holiday and along with spending time in the shade and dipping into the sea, two products really helped me to keep cool, the first being the Avène Thermal Water Spray, I would spray it all over my chest and thighs and my skin would instantly feel calmer. And I also purchased pure Aloe Vera Gel from the local store, which help to relieve the stinging sensation. 

'I Let You Go' By Clare Mackintosh £3.85
‘I Let You Go’ fast became my favourite book after I devoured it within 24 hours. It’s the best psychological thriller I have ever read, even over the likes of ‘Gone Girl’. It’s a compelling read, fast paced, emotional, with remarkable unforeseen twists. Recommend. 

Moroccan Oil Treatment Light 25ml £13.45
This light treatment is hands down the best hair product, I have ever had the pleasure of using. Whilst I was away I ran a small amount of the silky oil through my damp hair on a daily basis, helping to detangle after dips in the sea and it’s signature ingredient Argan oil, protected my hair from damaging UV rays. Without a doubt a must have to add to your holiday beauty packing checklist. You can read my full review here

Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser SPF20 £34.00
I may be on repeat having only mentioned this product last week in my June Beauty Favourites, but this tinted moisturiser from Laura Mercier deserves all the praise. Whilst I was away I wore little to no makeup during the day. And if I did, I would only wear one product, the Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser. This tinted moisturiser gives a beautiful glow, whilst evening out my skin tone, with neither shine nor grease and its added SPF of 20 was a bonus protecting my skin whilst I sat in the sun. I also found the shade ‘Bisque' was very forgiving, as my tan got deeper. You can read my full review here

Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser Normal £3.00
I didn’t even bother to pack a body moisturiser (who wants to be a sticky mess in 34C heat?). The Nivea In Shower Moisturiser was all I needed. I would simply wash and slather my body in the stuff and then rinse it away. It does leave behind a residue, but it’s non-sticky and smells rather lovely. It kept my skin hydrated and helped to prolong my tan. 

Have you tried any of these products before?


Atlantica Aegean Blue, Kolymbia, Rhodes

Atlantica Aegean Blue, Kolymbia, Rhodes

You know you’re in need of a holiday when you’re relying on coffee to wake up, when the weekend flies by and you’ve lost all focus at work. And I was without a doubt at that point and needed to cleanse my body from the constant caffeine cravings, so my boyfriend Ben booked an impromptu seven-day break to Rhodes and it was simply beautiful. 

We stayed at the Atlantica Aegean Blue hotel in Kolymbia, Rhodes. The family hotel sits on the beachfront and we could see the sea from our hotel room, which was a lovely touch. The pebble beach was idyllic, evoking childhood memories and for the first time in a long time I felt truly relaxed. Most evenings we sat on the open air terrace chatting away and having a drink, or two (primarily piña coladas - my favourite) and during the day we basked by the poolside where I would disconnect from the likes of my emails and lose myself in a good book. The buffet restaurant offered a wide variety of food and the little onsite shop sold snickers ice cream. What more could I ask for?

June Beauty Favourites

June Beauty Favourites
It may be a little belated, but hello July. The warm weather is here and I for one am so much happier when summer comes around. Who wouldn’t be? I mean, come July it’s okay to eat ice cream for dinner! Ice cream aside, I recently jetted off to Greece (blog post to follow), finally got my hands on the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette (drool worthy), ran the Nike Women’s 10k London Race (in under an hour) and had a lovely night out with the girls (minus the hangover that followed!). But before I ramble on, let’s get straight to the June beauty favourites... 

Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser £34.00
The Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser has been the only base product I have worn for the last four weeks. It has featured many a time here on BBA and the more I wear it, the more I love it. The tinted moisturiser covers minor blemishes, has buildable coverage, applies beautifully, has an SPF of 20, is non-comedogenic and leaves my skin looking fresh. You can read my full review here.

Clinique 3-Step Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel With Pump £30.00
Over the past year, I have been a little fickle when it comes to moisturiser. But I always end up returning to an old favourite, the Clinique 3-Step Dramatically Different Moisturing Gel. It is the only moisturiser I have repurchased more than twice and funnily enough, I also own the lotion, which I turn to in colder months. This moisturising gel is unlike any moisturiser I have tried before and leaves my skin feeling instantly hydrated, smoother and healthier in appearance after just one use.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow £49.00
One of my most treasured beauty products has started to show true signs of love and affection. And although hitting pan has been inevitable, I feel a little sad, not only because at some point I will have to grit my teeth and fork out another £49.00 to repurchase this powder duo, it also looks a little worse for wear. Never the less, I have Charlotte Tilbury to thank for helping me fake cheekbones and curb my fear of contouring with two finely milled, super soft, silky powders. You can read my full review with swatches here.

Dr. PAWPAW Original Balm £6.95*
Lip products often accumulate in the bottom of my handbag, but one lip product I have been reaching for over the likes of my Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss In Rockateur (featured in last months favourites) is the Dr. PAWPAW Original Balm. The multipurpose product can be used for sunburn, skin irritations, cracked heels and unruly eyebrows. With nourishing ingredients, a fragrance free formula and a very reasonable price tag, it has quickly become the first product to rival my much-loved Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

Champneys Spa Treatments Skin Comforting Body Butter £10.00
I have found a body care friend in the Champneys Spa range. Unlike other body butters I have tried, this body butter has a gel/butter consistency and its formulation of olive oil, shea, mango and cocoa butters keeps my skin hydrated for over 12 hours. After a shower or bath, I like to apply the light body butter to my legs and arms and it leaves my skin feel nourished and soft. It’s lightly fragranced and doesn’t leave you feeling like a slippery mess. I rate this body butter over the likes of the Body Shop Body Butters and the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body ButterI think I need a spa break... Champneys Spa Hotel anyone?

ALDI Lacura 3 In 1 Facial Cleansing Wipes* 89p
After being a little disappointed with the Simple micellar water, I found myself using the Lacura 3 In 1 Facial Cleansing Wipes from ALDI. Let’s just say, I wasn’t expecting much, but these wipes are comparable to Johnson’s Cleansing Wipes, which cost £3.19! The Lacura facial cleansing wipes are super soft and leave my skin feeling moisturised and clean. They are available in sensitive, normal or vitality for mature skin and can be found online and in store at ALDI. Have you tried any of the products from the ALDI beauty range?

Pamper Evening Essentials With Victoria Plumb

Pamper Evening Essentials With Victoria Plumb
With the stresses of everyday life it’s important to take some time out to de-stress, detox and indulge in some well deserved ‘me time’. I for one can’t afford a day at the spa especially not on a regular basis, so instead I like to set aside some time and pamper myself in the comfort of my own home. So, ladies grab your favourite beauty products, draw a hot bath and sit back and relax. It's Friday after all.

Let’s start with the essentials. There is nothing better than a hot bubble bath, the kind of bath where if I haven’t lost a couple of pounds by the time I get out, the long hot soak was a failure! And it’s safe to say that no pamper night is complete with a bath bomb, or bubbles. For bubbles I recommend Soap & Glory’s Calm One Calm All* (£6.00), a stress-battling softening bubble bath. The formula includes built-in body lotion and it pretty nice too. If you fancy lying under a blanket of bubbles and bathing in pink water I recommend The Comforter Bubble Bar (£4.75) from Lush. And how can I not mention Lush bath bombs? The feel-good fizzies, full of beneficial ingredients. Avobath* (£3.35) from Lush as the name suggests, contains avocado and olive oil to help tackle dryness and it smells fresh like lemons, mmmmm...

When was the last time you read a book, or a decent magazine article? I don’t know about you, but working in marketing & having my little blog means I spend a very large amount of my time online, reading emails, tweets, blog posts and Facebook updates. And although a Netflix binge can be very satisfying, there is nothing quite like losing yourself in a great story, or engaging in an interesting magazine article. It is the best way to let your worries slip away (well for now anyway), not to mention reading will better your writing skills. 

Being a beauty addict I do tend to chop and change my beauty products quite frequently, but there are a few products I reach for above anything else when my skin is in need of a bit of TLC. Before I dip into the bath, I like prep my skin and soften the sebum with my at home facial steamer. Then whilst relaxing in the bath I like to apply my trusty Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. If you're a regular reader of BBA you’ll know that I rate this mask highly. If you’re yet to try this mask and a little hesitant of the price, try the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask Pods*, you get four in a pack for £5.00 - they are perfect for travel too! But remember to pick a treatment specific to your skins needs, for instance if my skin is feeling hydrated I will opt for my GLAMGLOW Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment which smells delicious and leaves my skin feeling super soft. 

Towards the end of my bath I like to get down and gritty and exfoliate my body. Exfoliation is a must if you want smooth, even toned skin. Exfoliation is key to a long-lasting tan, helps free ingrown hairs and helps your moisturiser penetrate better. My current go-to scrub is the Champneys Spa Indulgence Distant Shores Body Scrub £10.00. But remember to scrub before you shave and lock in the moisture post-scrub with your favourite body moisturiser. 

And finally, don’t forget to do it in the dark and switch off those lights! A candle lit bath really helps to set the mood, making your home, well, more homely. And not only do candles smell great, candles are very calming - perfect at helping to drain your tensions away. And if you’re anything like my mum you’ll have a stash of candles & tea lights just calling out to be lit! I’m personally a big fan of Yankee Candles, especially their Mango and comforting Fluffy Towels* scent - which smells incredible! 

Ps. A big thank you to Victoria Plumb for sending me such a beautiful pamper basket. 

How do you like to pamper yourself at home? 


Beauty Tips / Get Summer Ready With M&S

Beauty Tips / Get Summer Ready With M&S

With temperatures expected to rise above 30C today, it’s safe to say the countdown to summer is well and truly over. It’s here. And as the skirts get shorter, I’m sure that for many, you will feel a slight twinge of panic at the thought of baring all. But no fear, I have a few summer beauty products to help you with your seasonal beauty overhaul, all thanks to Marks & Spencer
I love a multi use product and this luxury cult oil from Nuxe doesn’t disappoint. The lightweight formula is a unique combination of 95.2% natural ingredients, including 30% precious plant oils and vitamin E. It has a lovely light exotic fragrance and although it’s oil, it doesn’t leave you looking or feeling greasy. Spritz into your moisturiser, mix it with your foundation, or spray directly onto the skin and into your hair. When applied to the skin it instantly leaves a golden sparkly sheen (you wont look like a disco ball) and the vitamin E leaves the skin feeling really soft and moisturised. This dry oil is the perfect product to emphasise your tan - hello bronzed goddess in a bottle.

It’s a given that exfoliating and moisturising are a must in the summer months. And for just £15.00 you can renew your skin with the Rituals Discover Hammam Set. The set includes a foaming shower gel, body scrub and body cream. The sea salt scrub is intense and has a sensuous, spa like scent with ginger and eucalyptus. It leaves my skin feeling buffed to perfection and helps to kick cellulite to the curb. Once dry, follow up with a body moisturiser and you’ll have pins ready for a pair of shorts.

It’s a no brainer to ramp up your SPF, but how about treating your skin after basking in the sun? New to the Ultrasun range, the Overnight Summer Skin Recovery Mask slowly releases hyaluronic acid and powerful brown algae activies, to deliver long-lasting hydration and overnight, anti-agign care for your skin. The formula is incredibly fast-absorbing and lightweight with a non-greasy texture. This recovery mask is great for those with very sensitive and dehydrated skin as its free from perfume, mineral oils, emulsifiers, silicones or alcohol. This product offers a targeted solution against the damaging effects of the sun, reducing sun damaged cells by up to 40% and I can’t stress how important it is to protect your skin. 

Ever wondered what those bumpy, red lumps are on the backs of your arms? Keratosis pilaris (also known as chicken skin) is an inherited condition (thanks mum and dad) in which dead cells and excess keratin build up around hair follicles, clogging pores. So whats the fix? I have found a couple of products, including a bestseller from Bliss the Fatgirlslim Arm Candy which is clinically proven to reduce redness and is formulated with lactic acid which helps to exfoliate dead skin cells and help the skin adsorb moisture. It smells clean and minty and is easy to apply with the massaging applicator. Once massaged into the skin, there is an immediate reduction in redness and with continued use my keratosis pilaris has improved. The only thing I dislike about this product is the subtle shimmer it leaves on my arms, but I can look past that. This product is priced at £34.00 but Marks & Spencer currently offer this product and a Bliss tinted body spray in their Arm & Leg Bundle Gift Set for £32.00.

Cult body-oil-turned-body-wash the Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil has quickly become my new favourite shower buddy and it's the perfect alternative for those who can’t afford the dry oil. The Nuxe Prodigieux shower oil is a pleasure to use, its creamy, iridescent texture gently cleanses and moisturises leaving a satin finish on the skin. This shower oil is certainly one to pack for your upcoming holiday. 
What’s your favourite summer beauty product?
