10 Summer Beauty Essentials | WeBlogSummer

Wow I can't believe it is nearing the end of the #WeBlogSummer collaboration ALREADY! This is actually a good ole' favourites post, sure we all love one of those? As we are nearing the end of summer (cries) I thought it would be very fitting to do a write of my top 10 (YES 10!) beauty products this summer. Because well, I just send all my money on so much in Boots it should be relatively easy to pick out 10. I am usually brand loyal so a lot of these are re-purchases, I hope you like what you see!

1. bareMinerals READY foundation

bareMinerals READY foundation review

bareMinerals READY foundation review

This foundation is a powder but before you click off just hear me out. What if I told you that this 'powder' was just a good, if not better coverage than my favourite liquid foundation? Now I have you listening! I was roped into bareMinerals by QVC when I roamed their website and watched numerous tutorial videos, I honestly haven't looked back! I apply the READY foundation with the Full Flawless Face Brush which makes the product easily buildable. With a good primer it lasts and looks flawless all day AND it is au natural, which my skin totally agrees with. Hello to clear skin and no more breakouts due to blocked pores. I am currently waiting on £100 worth of bareMinerals to be delivered to my door, cannot even express my excitement right now! Totally loving this brand.

2. The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge review

Yes I know this isn't the original beauty blender but for a fraction of the price I think it does a sweet job. I use it to apply my liquid foundation (usually Revlon Colorstay or MAC Studio Fix) and I am pleased with the results every time. I like the slightly pointed side for getting the product in and around your nose, eyes and mouth. I give this 9/10 simply because I would like it a bit bigger but thats minor, try it out!

3. Simple Soothing Facial Toner

Soothing Simple Facial Toner review

I'm just cheating now as Simple is one of those brands I have used since I was at school, so this is just a repurchase! It would be a shame to not include it though as Simple is one of the only brands that doesn't sting my face, I'm telling you, very sensitive skin is no joke! I know that the micellar water is big in the beauty world at the moment and I have read countless reviews online about it but this is one of the products that you just don't want to change from. I use a cotton pad to swipe it all over my face after taking off my makeup and it makes my skin feel so fresh and clean. definitely one to pick up on your next Boots haul!

4. LUSH Mint Tulips Lip Scrub

LUSH Mint Tulips Lip Scrub review

My word this is good, just try to not eat it all. Mint chocolate, what else needs to be said? mmmm...

5. Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter review

Is it a lipstick, is it a lipgloss? I have no idea but it's so good! I am so used to wearing bold matte lipsticks like MAC Ruby Woo or Rebel but they are just too heavy looking for the summer months. On the other hand, I am not a fan of lipgloss as I don't like the sticky feeling and I don't feel like it lasts long. The Revlon Lip Butter range is a great in between, this is shade 'peach parfait' which is a shimmery pinky coral. Great for sweeping on when you are in a rush and highly moisturising without it being sticky. Love love love these. 

6. Carmex Lip Balm

Carmex Lip Balm review

To be honest, I don't know anyone who doesn't love Carmex. I have purchased their original lip balm for a while now but I have also tried out their cuticle balm which just as good. I wouldn't go near Vaseline, want to know why? Check out this post, you might just be put off it too, for life.

7. Palmer's Coca Butter Hand Balm

Palmer's Coca Butter Hand Balm review

Now, I'm not a huge fan of thick hand creams simply because I seem to always be in a rush and I need to grab my handbag, keys or phone just after I have applied it. A simple solution to this issue is to apply it at night before bed that way it has time to soak in and I don't need to re-apply it throughout the day. This Coca Butter Formula by Palmers is more like a balm, that's how thick it is! It is intensely moisturising and doesn't have any faux scents lingering from it, the more natural the better in my opinion! My only reservation about this is the fact that the tube isn't very big and I go through hand cream like nobody's business. However, I don't feel as bad when I buy it on offer!

8. LUSH Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask

LUSH Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask review

Oh I just love a good face mask! Have you tried the Montagne Jeunesse packet face masks? You can buy them in most supermarkets and pharmacy's for around 99p. Cheap as chips eh?   However, the LUSH fresh face masks are by FAR by favourite when you fancy a treat. You keep these in the fridge and they last about 6 applications for around £6, that's £1 per application (what a genius I am!), which works out pretty good value. I just love the cooling sensation and I swear by them when it comes to giving your face a deep clean to prevent blocked pores and blockades. Pick one up the next time you are in Lush and you won't be disappointed, promise!

9. Garnier Ambre Solaire After Sun Gel

Garnier Ambre Solaire After Sun review

I have a real thing for cooling body lotions and gels, I'm not joking when I say that I apply this all year round simply because I love the refreshing scent of aloe vera. What better way to get it than in an after sun? Place this in the fridge and apply it all over whenever you need a pick-me-up. 

10. Natural Collection White Eyeliner

Natural Collection White Eyeliner review

This was a tip that I read on interest a while ago, apply a line of white eyeliner to the lower water line to make your eyes appear brighter and less tired. My daily struggle is with my eyes, yes they are big but I also have dark circles which can make me look like I've been punched if I'm not careful! This little beauty changed by makeup routine for only £1.99, I notice a vast difference and simply wouldn't be without it now. I tried white eyeliners from other brands such as Rimmel but it turns out you don't always get what you pay for. natural Collection is the best as far as this goes!
