I can’t believe another month has almost passed already, so it’s definitely time to share my August Beauty Favourites. For August it’s about achieving that holiday glow, so here’s the perfect products which do just that. From a tan accelerating lotion to a hydrating summer tint moisturiser – I’ve got your needs met this season!
Gatineau Tan Accelerating Lotion
The Tan Accelerating Lotion is one of Gatineau’s best-selling products and uses Melanin-Activating-Peptides to prepare the skin for sun exposure. What does that mean? Well, it means you get a deeper and longer-lasting tan, as well as help preventing things like prickly heat! The iconic lotion naturally stimulates the pigment in our skin that gives us our tan – and to be honest, we need all the help we can get thanks to the British summer! I’ve replaced my everyday/evening moisturiser with this Tan Accelerating Lotion. My skin feels wonderfully nourished with a much more natural glow. I’ve also found this lotion suitable for my face too, so it’s perfect to take on Holidays should you only want to pack the one moisturiser.
Exciting news! Voting for the Tan Accelerating Lotion in the QVC Beauty Excellence Awards is now open! If you already love the lotion as much as I do, or if it becomes one of your August beauty favourites, make sure you cast a vote here.
Charlotte Tilbury’s NEW #GLOWMO Collection
As I’m all for trying the latest beauty trends, how could I not give Charlotte Tilbury’s NEW #GLOWMO collection a good go! These include the new Unisex Healthy Glow, a hydrating summer tint moisturiser (which everyone is talking about) along with the Magic Foundation and the Goddess Clay Mask!
The Healthy Glow tinted moisturiser features ingredients for healthy, natural glowing skin. This fabulous unisex cream is SO natural, no one will suspect you’re wearing it! Personally I found a little goes a long way. So if you fancy using this instant glow on your body, you can definitely mix a little Healthy Glow with your daily moisturiser, or even better, with the Tan Accelerating Lotion!
The Magic Foundation is ideal if you want a full coverage SPF15 foundation that will treat and transform your skin. I love Charlotte Tilbury products and I think this foundation would be really good if you do like that extra coverage, especially if you want to hide any heavy pigmentation, scarring or even acne. It’s semi-matte so will last the day and won’t need powdering. I’ve been using this foundation in the studio and has been perfect under lighting.
And finally The Goddess Skin Clay Mask features ingredients to tighten pores, moisturise your skin and clear imperfections. This glow-giving formula combines Spanish clay with sweet almond oil to nourish your skin. With essential oils to hydrate the skin and frangipani flower extracts to soothe your skin leaving it cashmere-soft, I found by using the mask once a week my skin appears brighter and happier.
Now everyone can have flawless, glowing Goddess Skin thanks to Charlotte Tilbury’s NEW #GLOWMO collection!
Twist & Spritz
And finally for my August beauty favourites I have the extreamilty handy Twist & Spritz. Thanks to The Fragrance Shop you can now carry your signature scent. This travel-friendly atomiser is designed to transport your favourite perfume in a compact 8ml bottle and is perfect to take onto flights. Available in 18 Instagrammable shades, the Twist & Spritz has a simple filling system, using a valve which is placed over the nozzle of the perfume you wish to carry with you. The handbag-friendly bottle also guarantees 100 sprays, perfect for holidays, festivals, weddings and any other event filling your summer nights! What do you think of the marble Twist & Spritz? Isn’t it perfect for the handbag and dressing table too!
