This product was gifted by Palmolive, but all views are my own. All items featured in this post have been put to the test by myself and Liv and are some of our favourites for the summer!
Believe it or not, we are actually in the midst of summer now and schools have officially broken up for the holidays! Whether you are planning a few days away or you will be home based for the summer, it’s important to keep your body and especially your skin in tip-top condition, especially after the toll lockdown took on our bodies.
With so many beauty products on the market it can seem very overwhelming, but I’ve coupled together a few of our favourite must have items to add to your collection for the summer!
Top Summer Beauty Items
The smell of coconut has always been synoymous with summer for me. The smell of holidays, tanning lotion, sunshine and smiles. For those not travelling away on holiday this year, you can still reminise and dream of holidays past and present by slathering a luxurious coconut infused shower cream over your body. The Palmolive Coconut Shower Cream not only conjures up holiday associations, but it is also super kind to your skin and leaves it feeling super soft! Formulated with moisturising milk and coconut extract that respects the natural balance of your skin and keeps its natural moisture, the shower cream will leave you feeling you refreshed and naturally good.
Boots No 7 Beauty Vault Box
I am a huge fan of the Boots No7 range as it is super kind to skin and for the positive results achieved, I find the ranges very reasonably priced. There is something for all skin types and all ages! A recent offer for a No 7 Beauty Vault Box caught my attention and I thought it would be a great treat for Liv and I to share out. For £32 receive £130 worth of Boots No7 skincare and beauty products! Featuring items from their range such as the Revitalising Cleansing Wipes which are really handy to pack for a day by the beach or a few days away. The funky looking No 7 Nourishing Hydration Mask which offers an intense moisture boost for soft and healthy looking skin – perfect to use if the sun ever decides to make an appearance!
This particular box seems to have been snapped up very quickly, however these treats do pop up every so often, so it’s wise to register on the Boots site to be kept in the loop!
GlossyBox Subscription Box
GlossyBox has been one of our favourite subcription boxes of the year so far! We love sharing the items that arrive in the surprise beauty box each month. Definitely one our our top summer beauty treats, the July box was summer personified. My favourite item from this particular box are the Jecca Blac Glow Drops, a fabulous facial highlighting primer. Lockdown has played havoc with my skin, so the glow drops are a great way to add a little glow to my face so that I can venture outside without scaring people! GlossyBox delivers 5 surprise beauty and skincare treats directly to your doorstep each month. I love the fact you never know what you will receive, as it gives you the opportunity to try products you may never have known about. Plus, the boxes are always super cute, as you can see from the very summery Aloha design above!
