Summer Beauty Favourites 2017

As you know I’m all for trying new beauty products. So this month I wanted to share a few of my June beauty favourites. Why? To be honest I’ve been enjoying a number of products recently and clearly I want you to reap the benefits too!


June Beauty Favourites – Philip Kingsley Coconut Breeze Elasticizer


I’ve been talking a lot about sun damage recently, did you know that the sun can be just as damaging to your hair as bleach (FYI you can read more about how to protect and enhance your tresses with Philip Kingsley’s new Summer Solutions here) but if you’re just looking for a good hair treatment, then you’ll love the world’s first pre-shampoo treatment; Coconut Breeze Elasticizer. This new deeply conditioning hair treatment adds elasticity, manageability, bounce and shine to all hair types from fine to African-Caribbean. Inspired by the Kingsley’s love of America’s West Coast this treatment is infused with luxurious notes of coconut, jasmine, almond and vanilla. It feels really creamy to touch and wonderfully hydrating for the hair whilst leaving the locks soft and tangle-free. The fragrance isn’t too overpowering and leaves a nice subtle scent of holiday (my all time favourite smell!). Here’s how to use the Coconut Breeze Elasticizer;

  • Apply before shampooing
  • Dampen the hair with water (this helps with absorption) and apply Elasticizer in sections to mid-lengths and ends, ensuring maximum coverage (if your hair is fine like myself, I would recommend avoiding the roots)
  • Cover hair with a shower cap or towel (The heat created helps the nutrients to be fully absorbed – I would suggest using a warm towel for maximum affect)
  • Leave for a minimum of 10-20 minutes, or as long as you wish (enjoy some down time with a good book or have a nice long soak in the bath). You can even sleep in Elasticizer
  • Rinse thoroughly and shampoo and condition as normal. You can shampoo twice if you want to ensure all residue is removed
  • Suitable for use on coloured hair
  • Note: Do not use Elasticizer 72 hours before or after dying your hair as it may affect how the colour takes during this period only


June Beauty Favourites – Ultrasun Anti-aging Face


Continuing with the theme of sun protection, Ultrasun is a MUST! And now I’ve realised how important it is to protect your skin all year round especially the face and décolleté so in theory it’s not just a June beauty favourite. Ultrasun Anti-aging Face has an advanced combination of UVA and UVB protection (SPF30) plus powerful antioxidants which restores optimal moisture levels and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. So for me this is a great daily essential and with its incredibly fast-absorbing, lightweight and non-greasy texture, it’s perfect to use under foundation. Ideal for very sensitive skin and also the perfect size for your handbag, this Ultrasun Anti-aging Face is an essential all year round. You can read more about getting summer ready with Ultrasun here.


June Beauty Favourites – Nails Inc


Next up, due to popular demand is Nails Inc. So this won’t be a surprise as I’ve written countless amount of posts about Nails Inc (you can read them here) But I have to say, I’ve never received as many compliments about my manicure than recently thanks to Nails Inc’s new collection. First up, Rainbow Riot Pink Rave Nail Polish an intense, non-fade neon polish to give your nails the colour pop it needs this summer. And my all time favourite, Long Wear White Out which brings the latest catwalk trend straight to your nails. Nails Inc’s new long wear, high shine brilliant white polish will make the ultimate summer statement. Nothing says summer more than piercing colours against a blue sky/sea backdrop. Colour blocking is the nail look of the season, so these will have you doing it in style. To apply;

  • Apply one coat of  base coat to clean, dry nails
  • Apply 2 coats of your chosen nail polish
  • Finish with one coat of 45 Second Top Coat with Kensington Caviar


June Beauty Favourites – Beau Belle Rose Gold Make-up Brush Set & Pot


And saving the best for last (*dum roll….) my final June beauty favourite will have you buff, blend, line and define like a pro thanks to Beau Belle Rose Gold Make-up Brush Set & Pot. Their breathtaking Rose Gold Set features a selection of exquisite face and eye brushes for professional makeup application. All stored in a chic and classy travel pot which switches to two makeup brush holders seriously adds glamour your dressing table. Each brush is designed with a groove in the handle giving you maximum precision and control. Made with synthetic fibres and covering all your makeup needs this set is an essential for every beauty lover. And due to the design of the pot, you can take these brushes away on holiday too! The Rose Gold Make-up Brush Set & Pot set includes:
