Summer where art thou... Feel and smell good this summer.

I don't know about you guys but I am ready for summer ( if we ever get one) if you live in the UK you will understand where I am coming from.


I have decided to share some of my favourite products that I love to use during summer. I also tend to use some of these products on holiday. The products range from fragrance to body oils and moisturisers.


I hope you enjoy and please let me know if you end up purchasing any of the products.


For me, summer means more skin on show however I not only want my skin to look soft but to also feel smooth. I achieve this by starting with an exfoliator I have another post on some of my fav exfoliators so be sure to check that out for inspo.



I am currently using: KP Bump Eraser Body scrub.



EXFOLIATOR/BODY SCRUB


A great chemical scrub with AHA suitable for sensitive skin. Formulated with Pumice Buffing Beads, this scrub naturally exfoliates, removing dead skin and rough bumps to reveal a silky soft surface.

As it contains AHA I would still to using this once a week and recommend a patch test.






I also love Frank Body Coconut Coffee Scrub; a nut-free body scrub that targets scars, stretch marks and dull, dry skin. The scrub smells amazing and also leaves you with a lovely glow and your skin feeling smooth. It's a messy one so be careful in the shower.



SHOWER GEL


So I have a major shower gel obsession and lately, I have been loving the Love Beauty and Planet Tropical Hydration Shower Gel. Described as infused with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, known to nourish and Ylang Ylang Flower for early morning freshness.

YES Vegan, YES paraben-free, YES silicone-free, YES safe, YES with plant-based cleansers, YES Natural Ingredients, YES bottle made from recycled plastics. Which I also love. This smells so good and honestly feels amazing on the skin.

Also because of the ingredients, it smells very similar to Tom fords Soleil blanc oil and fragrance.


I also love the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian 4Play Shower Gel. A rich, creamy body care formula designed to gently cleanse the skin of impurities while helping to leave it soft and smooth. The shower cream smells exquisite and has pistachio and salted caramel notes which leaves a scent on my skin. I sometimes use this as shaving cream.



So I am out of the shower feeling and smelling great and also squicky clean. My base is ready so the next step is a moisturiser or oil or both.

Depending on how dry your skin is a dry oil may be sufficient however for me as I am extra I need the lotion and the oil.









MOISTURISER



My addiction is the Bondi Sands Body Moisturiser - Coconut.

It nourishes, moisturises and is ash-free. Love this and haven't stopped using it since the day I discovered it. I sometimes use the shower girl in conjunction with the moisturiser. Bondi sands state ' Gracing your skin with the sweet smell of Coconut, this lotion will have you looking, smelling and feeling like you’ve just walked off an Australian beach. I mean it's a holiday in a bottle.



Another fav is the Loccitane Almond Milk Concentrate- lightweight, smells delicious and again leaves the skin feeling soft and supple.




BODY OIL


So you can skip this step if you want however for me it is an essential step especially if I am going out in the evening and have some skin on show. My new favourite oil and it smells divine. This is a scented oil originating from Soleil Blanc the fragrance. The oil is lightweight and not greasy. There won't be any transfer onto clothes. TF also do a shimmering oil with the same scent and is stunning and will be my next purchase. This oil leaves me looking radiant, smelling exotic and feel luxurious. A real treat.




Another goodie is the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil for Face, Body and Hair. As it's scented it will leave you smelling amazing.





FRAGRANCE


My final and favourite step.

Fragrance sets my mood and tone and elevates my outfit.


Since I would have used the oil I would naturally grab the tom ford Soleil blanc fragrance.

Top notes are Pistachio, Bergamot, Cardamom and Pink Pepper; middle notes are Tuberose, Ylang-Ylang and Jasmine; base notes are Coconut, Amber, Tonka Bean and Benzoin.



Described as Unexpected. Sultry. Addictive.

It unapologetically exudes the endless pursuit of sun and luxury that defines Tom Ford Soleil.


Another fragrance I love to wear is the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess for me coconut and vanilla goodness again summer in a bottle. This fragrance lifts my mood immediately.


After this, I am good to go smelling and feeling good. I hope you guys got some inspo please don't forget to follow me on my socials for more recommendations and tips.
