3 Must Have Beauty Essentials For Summer '17



This summer I'm all about ease... I want less products in my morning routine that do more to create a healthy, natural glow, so I waste no time getting out and enjoying these hit and miss English summer days. There has been three new-ish products in my collection that I've found myself reaching for an awful lot since the weather has picked up, that I'm excited to share with you! 


First up is Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Treatment Lotion Mist which is basically what it says in the name, a treatment lotion that you spritz onto your face that is meant to infuse the skin with  radiance and energy, due to being packed with coffee beans, panax ginseng-plus and nutrient-rich pomegranate. With even sprays across the face, the oil-free formula sweeps away the dull skin to be replaced with a new hydrated complexion and boyyy does this feel refreshing! I'm in love with using this before I moisturise as a toner. It stops my skin from looking dull which is a really important thing to me, as well as giving a nice refreshing boost throughout the day over my makeup or even if I'm not wearing any. I've noticed the texture of my skin improve a lot recently, plus it looks much more radiant/ healthier therefore, it has definitely secured it's place this summer.

Next up, I've been loving the Nude by Nature Sheer Glow BB Cream in Natural Tan to even out my skin tone and match my face to my tanned body. Now, this product does have A LOT of negative reviews on the internet and I can completely understand why! My first experience with this product was an absolute disaster, there's no other way to describe it... it separated on my face and created a big ol' mess, which I was shocked about as I had such high hopes for this BB cream. I'm not very experienced in using creams like bb or cc, but I opted for this one because I was finding foundation a bit OTT for everyday since my skin has been clear. Because of spending £22 on this product I knew I had to give it a few more tries before I could accept I'd wasted that money for absolutely nothing... and I'm glad I did because now it has became one of my favourite products! 

It's so important to know that every product performs differently depending on how you use it and what you use it with. I have found that it is very important to know what you're getting as many people complain about this bb cream having very little coverage but thats what the product claims to be and thats what it is. I would only recommend this product to those, like me, who want a very natural, light coverage that offers a pigment to just smooth and even out the skin tone. If you have a lot of hyper-pigmentation, blemishes or other imperfections then this most likely won't be for or you can use a concealer for any areas your require more coverage. I also would not recommend this to oily skin types as the consistency is very dewy, although I have an oily t-zone I just make sure I always apply powder. The key to this bb cream is to make sure your moisturiser is completely dry and sunken into the skin before you apply it as that was why mine was separating on my face. I found the best way to apply it was with my fingers to spread its evenly as I can, then finishing with a beauty blender around my hair line. Using a brush or beauty blender for the process proves challenging to get an even coverage.


This sheer glow BB cream is amazing if you are looking for a base that minimises the appearance of fine lines, smoothes out the skin tone and adds a lovely luminous glow to the skin. It also feels like a natural alternative to all the chemically driven things we put on our skin as this is made from all natural ingredients, enriched with Australian Kakadu plum, aloe vera, quandong and desert lime, which works to fight the visible signs of ageing and moisturise the skin. Beware this only has an SPF of 8 so I would highly recommend using another methods for sun care if you are going to be in the sun.

Finally, we have the Rosie for Autograph Amazing Radiance Body Glow which is a tinted body lotion that provides a lovely sun kissed glow with a slight shimmer of light reflective particles to it. I'm not the biggest fan of shimmer on an everyday basis however, this formula is so subtle it could be used as a daily body moisturiser to enhance you're skins colour and glow. I mostly keep this for events/ nights out where I know I want to look lovely and healthy- with just a hint of dewy! This makes your skin looks great in photographs as you can apply it over your already fake tanned body to get the Red Carpet radiance. If anything is going to help me look more like Rosie Huntington-Whitely then you know I'm going to try it! This has got me so excited to try out more from the Rosie For Autograph range that is exclusively sold at Marks & Spencer... the fact all of Rosie's packaging is absolutely perfect and affordable does help!
