My summer skincare routine

It’s been far too long since my last beauty post, and so I’ve pulled out all the stops for this one. I’ll be sharing my summer skincare routine with you all today, starting with the legs!

Connock London do the most amazing body products made from kukui oil to keep your skin looking 100% radiant this summer. I apply a little oil to my legs and arms. As IPL hair removal is so huge right now, this has promoted me to get my Smoothskin IPL device out too! I had to stop using it when I fell pregnant but I’m making the most of it in my summer skincare routine again.

A true life saver is a lip balm that works for you and your lips. Mine is from Hempz Beauty, and contains pure natural hemp seed oil which keeps my lips hydrated like no other product I own.

This next product is another key item in my summer skincare routine this year. It’s the Finishing Touch Flawless from JML Direct, which is just perfect for removing fine facial hair. I use this around my chin and upper lip as I can’t stand waxing or plucking these sensitive areas. It’s got an 18-karat gold head and so easy to clean with its microblade system. Where was this product when I needed it years ago? JML always brings out the most innovative products and I’m a true fan since I got my very first gel bra back in 2005! Retailing right now at £19.99, go grab one while this product is hot on the shelf!!

Another top pick from my skincare arsenal is this microdermabrasion polish from Botanics, available at Boots. I don’t use this every day, but when I feel my skin needs a refresh then I use this in the shower to make my skin feel great again!

My toner and micellar water are from SVR Laboratoires, a French brand which are dedicated to scientifically create products that are anti-allergy focused. Available on Feel Unique and Look Fantastic with prices starting from around £4 and go up to about £15 so great prices!

My previus blog post on Image Skincare will tell you all about this hyalurinic wonder. It’s been in my routine long before summer hit, and it will still be here when it’s over!

Another Botanics product is the all bright eye roll-on, which is very much needed after a bad night with Alice.

Finally, let’s talk about Heaven. If you haven’t heard of Heaven Skincare before now, let me tell you it is one of the best companies out there in the beauty world in my opinion. I first discovered the brand after a London blog event where I met the founder Deborah Mitchell. They were showcasing their bee venom mask range and since then, they have gone on to achieve some amazing things. The Heaven Skincare flagship salon also recently competed on a programme called Spa Wars, and obviously came away with a trophy. They are one of the biggest and most popular stalls at the Pro Beauty show in London each year, and I’m in love with so many of their every day essential products like this oxygen cream. Quality, luxury and pure heaven!

I hope you’ve discovered some fab new products and if you have any questions at all about my summer skincare routine then reach out with a comment below or on social!

I’m my own Galentine! The 2018 Edit

So this year I thought, why the hell not focus a little on myself for Valentines Day? I’ve written this post from my very own heart and I’m impatient to show you some products I am absolutely loving right now. This post has a bit more pink in than I’m used to, but hey when it’s the 14th Feb, the time is right to spread some passionate pink all over my blog!

I have ordered my favourite brownies from Gower Cottage, I’ve booked my favourite girls, Paul and I tickets to go see 50 Shades of Grey number three (as has been tradition on this day for the last few years) and I’ve picked out exactly what I’m going to be rocking tomorrow for the occasion. See below how I’m my own Galentine! The 2018 Edit:

Eyes: Blank Canvas Cosmetics

A super sexy palette with some gorgeous shades and deep tones.

Nails and lashes: KISS products

These are my top picks for the ‘finished touch’ effect. Pair with attitude and flair.

Body: Hempz

If you’re going out, better be smelling as sweet as a pomegranate with Hempz body wash.

Brows: Eylure x Fleur de Force

My brows will be packing some force with these delights from Eylure.

Face: XIP

Adding some serious glow to the mix with XIP sculpting palette and brush.

Outfit: Coconut Lane

Last but not least, I’m going out in style wearing this banger from Coconut Lane’s new sweatshirt collection, and it couldn’t be more fitting! PS, get 20% off your next Coconut Lane order by using my discount code saharasplash20 at the checkout. ?

Be your own fabulous Galentine this year- wear what makes you feel great, eat whatever your heart desires and definitely don’t let anyone put you down!
