Current Summer Favourites

After going on holiday last month and
having had some beautiful weather in London recently I feel I have perfected my
summer routine and I am pretty happy with it. Hopefully I will show it in a
video soon (well the makeup at least) but for now here are a few of my
favourite bits 

About Beauty Mulit-purpose Tint Lynne

This product was a bit of a surprise; it
looks nice in the pan but nothing special. Except it is the most perfect natural
colour for the apples of the cheeks with the right amount of sheen so you don’t
need a highlighter to achieve a perfect summer glow. Not as nice on the lips
but pretty much the only blusher I will use at the moment.
Buin Tan & Protect £17.99

(but look for a good
offer- they’re always about)
I have been quite lucky recently and
haven’t burnt in a good few years and although I do love a little sun in the
summer months I wouldn’t say I am a sun worshiper. I have however been loving
this Piz Buin Oil with SPF as it protects both UVA and UVB (which is SO
important) but I feel still helps me tan a little more. I usually use SPF15 but
go for slightly higher if you are quite pale or burn easily,
and Olay Razor

(currently on offer)

I actually saw this
first on Super Savvy Me whilst
having a read of their beauty articles.
Not only do they offer great tips and advice but also some money off vouchers
so I printed the one for this razor so I could give it a go. I often get
irritated skin when shaving but it didn’t happen with this razor and I even
felt it didn’t dry them out!

La Roche Posay Anthelios AC SPF 30 £11.62
Face SPF is the most important I think and for me 30 is just about right. I wear it under my foundation and as it is a matte one I don’t get a shiny face- plus it is super affordable!
WaterProof Mascara £12.50
(I think there are No7 money off vouchers
The non-waterproof version of this mascara
is one of my favourites so I thought I would give this a go at the beach and
considering I love swimming in the sea it held up very well and will be going
on holiday with me again next month! I sometimes find that waterproof mascaras
do very little for my nails but this one add great volume! 
What are you current summer favourites?
PS my camera lens has arrived… finally! Lots to share over the next few weeks, hopefully even a few videos so if you have any requests/ideas they’d be appreciated!

    It has been too hot for me to wear any make up etc so my current favourite is coola suncare range which has been stopping me from burning! and I am sorry to be that person but you have a typo in the mascara section of your post, I assume you mean to say 'lashes' instead of 'nails'? must've had them on your mind! 😛 x

    I need that La roche posay face sun cream. I went to boots to find it on the weekend but they didn't have it!

    I've seen a lot about the No7 mascaras on blogs recently, might have to try one of them out! My ultimate summer favourites are pastel nail varnishes and brown kohl pencil for the waterline…a lot less harsh than black for the summer!

    I'm ashamed to say I don't use SPF, and I really should … Will try to find the La Roche Posay one in stores! My favorite summer product would be a leave-in conditioner! x

    These sound perfect for summer! Especially including the razor, when going through summer favourites posts people always seem to leave them out (myself included!) even though they're the most important part! X
