In The Frow’s Sunshine Essentials- Guest Post

Sadly, we have come to the end of my guest bloggers for this round but we have a great post to finish it off! I had the pleasure of meeting Victoria from In The Frow at an event a few months back and have been reading her blog ever since. Not only does she post about great beauty products but she has the most incredible hair and style! She is also lucky enough to be trekking around the US for the next few months so have a look at her social media and blog to keep up with her travels. As today is the official start of summer I thought it would be great to get a glimpse into Victoria’s summer must haves….

Whether at home or away, we all flock to the smallest glimpse of sunlight. The summer holiday is usually everyone’s favourite time in the year and the thing they remember that year by. Yet, although it may be everyone’s favourite time, so many people seem to forget to how to look after themselves when the sun starts shining. It is seen as a hassle to coat yourself in sun saving products, although it really doesn’t have to be. There are so many products out there that are perfect for saving your skin but also amazing and special to apply. Being in the sunshine no longer needs to be an issue for your skin but a time to break out some of your favourite products. Here are just a few that I love that you may like to add to your sunshine collection.
The best tinted moisturiser I have ever tried with amazing coverage and a high factor 30. Perfect for every day in the sunshine to make you look radiant whilst also saving your skin.
A beautiful and light product to apply over moisturiser and before foundation that contains a super high SPF50. A saviour for those with super pale skin and a layer you wont even feel on your skin whilst it works its magic. 
An amazing salt spray that creates gorgeous beach waves even when you’re miles away from the sea. A few spritz of the spray into dry hair will separate sections of the hair into waves without the dry, crispy texture. 
Nivea Sun Protect and Bronze SPF20 – £8.49
Probably the most important sun essential is sun protection. This product is brilliant as it contains bronzing ingredients that help the skin to prepare for the sunshine whilst protecting it from the harmful rays. 
When the sun comes out, so do the flip flops and tiny sandals which means that blister will probably be an issue at some point. These are literally the best thing for blisters you will ever use and within a few days they can be removed to reveal healed skin. 
This is amazing to keep by your side whenever you go to the beach or the pool on holiday, or even just in the sunsine at home. You spray it onto your dry hair or even after washing, to add a further conditioning product that can be left in. This will begin to protect and repair your hair, especially from the sunlight and you will find that beachy hair will feel much easier to work with after a spritz of the nourishing oil. 
Having a hair bobble handy for any time you get out of the pool or need to tie your hair up out of the wind is something we all wish we had sometimes. These from Goody, sold in Boots and most other drugstores are Ouchless as they do not include a silver fixture in the centre of the band. Instead, the bobble is elastic all the way round so that you do not end up pulling your hair out. 
This is easily the best after sun I have used and includes a tan maintainer which works its magic overnight to help you build up a beautiful tan. As I am so pale, I like to use this more than actually trying to tan in the sun, as the tan I get from this is better than the lobster red I would usually turn. 
These are from Topshop, but any sunglasses with UV protection are absolutely essential at any time you go out in the sunshine. Your eyes are so sensitive, as is the skin around them, so protecting them at all times is essential. 
The only top and bottom coat I ever use and the product that turned by nails around from broken to super strong. I apply this before and after nail colours and the difference in my nails is amazing. In the sunshine and on holiday, going in and out of the water and the pool can leave the nails weak and broken so a repair coat is the best thing to keep on the nails throughout a summer holiday.
I hope this maybe helped to give you some ideas of what to pack this summer or even what to pick up in the stores when a heat wave hits. Either way, I really hope you enjoy your summer!
Victoria, In the Frow x

    That rimmel top/base coat looks amazing, I love OPI nail envy, but its pretty expensive so maybe this would be a good cheap alternative xx

    Lovely post! I swear by the Compeed blister plasters too – they're super sticky and long lasting so you don't need to faff by reapplying plasters throughout the day 🙂

    I used to love the Garnier after sun with fake tan but when you come home and wash it off, it leaves you with no tan at all so I'm skipping the fake tan element this year!
