L to R

Hawaiian Tropic Island Berry SPF25  (£7.49 – Boots) Gorgeous moisturising gloss that protects and sparkles in the sunshine. Great colour for day or night. Tastes delicious!

Bobbi Brown – The Shimmer Brick in Bronze – (£35 – Harrods)  Iconic Bronze highlighter from the Queen of natural enchancing make up. Bobbi Brown’s products are amazing and if you haven’t yet tried the Shimmer Brick – it’s a serious style staple. Run your finger along each individual shade and highlight cheekbones, eyes, forehead, anywhere the sun would hit. Sweep your powder brush along all for a blended shimmer.  You wont need a separate eyeshadow this Summer, just pick a shade and blend over lids.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi Useage Dry Oil – (£28 – M & S ) Amazing product! With unique concentration of 6 precious oils, this nourishes and soothes your skin and hair –  leaving them incredibly smooth with gorgeous scent. Hair shines and feels light and silky. So many uses, can also be added to foundation for inner glow,  the bath for a relaxing experience, post waxing to soothe areas, spritzed directly onto skin for night out shimmer, added to conditioner to create a hair mask, rubbed onto cuticles and as hair serum. Wow! This product is so infused with natural goodness you will actually feel better using it. Perfect for soothing holiday skin and hair and when you want to highlight your tan.

Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray  (£7.19 – Boots) Cool aqua packaging and sleek bottle with GREAT results. Spray onto wet hair and leave to dry in the sun for perfect beach tousled waves. Smells good too.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzing Powder –  (£24) VERY blendable and natural looking. Stunning colour. Gives you year round glam glow  – in 4 different shades to suit your tan. Lasts and lasts, perfect matte texture for a carefree Summer feel.

Clarins Sunscreen Lotion Oil Free SPF 15 – Progressive Tanning – (£22) I love Clarins sunlotions. They feel fantastic on the skin and smell gorgeous. This brilliant spray does it all.  Light,  effective and small enough to fit in your beach bag. A quick spray and you are out the door and its perfect for poolside spritzing on the go, refreshing in the heat too.

Bobbi Brown Nail Polish – Nude Beach Collection (£12 ) The perfect nude nail shade. Don’t worry about chipping your manicure in the sun, a shimmer shade blends in well with your natural nails so any imperfections are less noticeable. It looks glam yet relaxed – exactly how you want to feel on holiday!

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent (£45  Wow! I  adore this.  One spray and you are transported to a gorgeous beach, with the heavenly scent of coconut, sea salt and faint hint of peach blossom in the air. It’s out of this world and limited edition! Bronze Goddess fans will know Estee Lauder slightly change the scent formula and bottles each Summer – the same coconut base but each year something new to accent the aroma beautifully.  I love 2013’s gold bottle and they seem to have the scent combination just right. Its my go-to fragrance this year and I may need to stock up now to keep that Summer feeling going…..

Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Aftersun – Coconut Papaya (£12.99) Gorgeous after sun that gives you a bit of a glow along with a divine fragrance. Perfect to layer with the Bronze Goddess perfume. With natural aloe – it feels wonderfully cool on your skin and leaves you ready for a night out!

Chanel Les Beiges Face Powder   (£38 – Debenhams) I have talked about this wonder product before but its so good its back on this must have list. Light, fresh powder that gives you a healthy glow while reducing shine, what more could you want? Er – it also contains antioxidants, an SPF and botanicals- cotton flower and white rose – wow!

Lancôme Définicils Waterproof High Definition Mascara (£22 – House of Fraser) The famous lengthening, separating and lash defining power-is now waterproof – brilliant! If you need your mascara to last through the day til cocktail time,  without flaking and still looking fresh and natural,  then this is the one for you!

Lancaster Tan Maximiser Soothing Moisuriser  – (£22 – Selfridges) Extend your tan by up to 80% – naturally! No fake tan, just an incredible complex that helps increase melanin production in your skin – and really works! I discovered this lightweight yet intensely moisturising lotion about ten years ago and I use religiously after tanning for seriously soothing tan intensifying!  I always end up looking browner for longer with this and your skin just feels good too.


Have FUN in the sun!
