Summer Beauty Must Haves: Part 1

by S1m

The summer is upon us and those who are slightly more prepared than myself would have been pampering themselves for a while now, getting ready to parade a little more skin whilst the sun is shining.

I have been putting some fantastic beauty products through their paces recently so be prepared for a couple of posts as they all deserve a mention!

I am a complete nail addict, especially in the summer when I want to show off bright colours and clash them together. Currently I am rocking two different brands…

Nails

 

Oriflame in Mint Zest – A gorgeous neon green/turquoise colour, one of ‘the’ colours for 2014 – I have rocked this shade earlier in the year. This was my first attempt with an Oriflame colour, having never used the brand before. I was really impressed with the brush, it is curved at the ends and makes it very easy to ensure every part of your nail is covered in the luscious colour. The ONE Long Wear Nail polish is currently on its 3rd day – after being treated under a UV light with no major chips. It is lasting well and so far I am impressed with the coverage and application.

Benecos in Mighty Orange – A totally new brand to me and one I have fallen in love with. Very easy to apply, the smaller length brush makes it very easy to control when applying – the coverage is fantastic. The range of skincare is all natural and the nail polishes are free from synthetics. Again, the colour is on its 3rd day after being UV lamp treated and is lasting well.

Together the colours work perfectly, maybe not to all tastes but I do love to clash colours!

Victoria Green bags are available in Debenhams and are THE perfect accessory to hold and cart all your beauty products in this summer. How cute is this Carry All – very deceiving, this handled toiletry bag holds everything you could possibly want to take on holiday with you. It has multi uses as well though as it can also be used as a beach bag or even a plane carry on bag. I have struggled to keep this bag hidden from Liv as I know she will want to use it. For the moment, it is stashed with beauty goodies and long may it stay that way! Visit Victoria Green for further info.

The range of bags launched in February 2014, exclusive to Debenhams – Victoria’s background is in textiles and you can see from her site that she certainly has an eye for creating amazing designs.

Gillette Venus have teamed up with Olay to bring you the rather cool new Sugarberry scented razor – a hefty, comfortable razor with one razor blade in each pack (refills can be purchased separately). The bars of the actual razor blade offer a close shave, whilst moisturising with Olay at the same time. The greatest thing about this razor, is not only the Sugarberry scent it leaves on your skin but also the fact you do not need to use with shaving gel. Thus making shaving a quick and painless process… which when on your holiday is an added bonus! With an RRP of £10.99, the Gillette Venus and Olay Sugarberry razor is available now in all good retailers.
