Summer is here and while you may not be packing your bag to go abroad, you can still glow like you’re on your hols! The mission, of which I chose to accept: Discover the perfect summer glow in a bottle. The task was not easy. I had to endure several days of painstaking self-pampering – but, I made it and came out the other side with wow-factor products in tow.
Check out these amazing summer beauty products, guaranteed to ensure some seriously sun-kissed luminosity. Think products so good they deserve their own safety deposit box. Who wants the hassle of airports and the worry about Covid-19, when you can sun it up in the UK? If it rains, who cares? With any of these skincare heroes in your beauty arsenal, you will look incredible for the foreseeable.
1.Time Bomb Holiday In A Bottle, £21 (Was £30), www.lookfantastic.com
Should you lust after the lightly bronzed (yet naturally acquired) complexion, this ‘sunshine in a bottle’ formula ticks every box. This is not a self-tanner. Containing micro-pigments that work to enhance your natural colour, the product sinks undetectably into the skin and almost feels like a moisturiser. The difference is that even if it’s raining your beautiful face will be one of radiant luminosity.
2. Iconic London Illuminator in Rose Gold, £30, www.iconiclondoninc.com
I generally veer towards liquid products due to the fact that my skin is fairly dry. Since reviewing Iconic’s Illuminator some time ago I have remained a devout fan. It is a little pricey, but it lasts for-like-ever as you only need a tiny amount. The formula literally achieves instant glow and radiance, whilst offering a lifting effect too. Better yet, it’s vegan and available in 4 shades. I love this so much.
3.Tan-Luxe The Body Self-Tan Drops, £37.80, www.feelunique.com
Take the stress out of achieving a tan with the help of these tan drops. Not only do they quickly provide that much-sought-after tan, but they are formulated with nourishing and skin-loving ingredients, too! Simply add a few drops to your body oil (BTW it works really well with Inner Senses Body Oil, but I am sure it will suit any. Hey presto, filter-free Insta-pics. No problem.
4.NYX High Glass Primer £14, www.nyxcosmetics.co.uk
I have a love-hate relationship with primers. I have discovered there’s very few that live up to their claims. Hence, when trying this one my expectations were not high. However, I should have given NYX the benefit of the doubt. As previously mentioned, my skin is dry, and this formula seems to be made especially for dry skin. Bonus. It creates a perfect base without causing any slide. I opt for the rose quartz shade (there are 3 shades available). The outcome is a supremely flattering glow that lasts. This primer is awesome.
5.Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Golden Shimmer Multi-Usage Dry Oil, £15.75, 50ml (Was £22,50), www.lookfantastic.com
I like to think of this oil as created by angels especially for me. It’s THAT good. Featuring a blend of vitamin E together with plant oils and Tsubaki oil, the spray is a treasure to behold. The ingredients are specifically chosen for their nourishing, repairing and smoothening qualities. Combining 95.5% natural ingredients, it works as skin treatment as well, creating an undeniably envious summer shimmer. Simply apply to the hair and skin and wait for the compliments.
6. Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream £42, www.chanel.com
I don’t think you will find a beauty editor or makeup artist who say Chanel’s Bronzing cream is anything other than spectacular. It comes in a universal shade and its gel-like formula feels like you are applying some kind of luxury silk to your face. It feels magical, goes on seamlessly and instantly creates naturally bronzed perfection. Yes, obsessed!
