Everyday Summer Beauty Must Haves


Glossier Invisible Shield suncream

Its taken me years to find a good face suncream that I actually like and doesnt leave me looking really greasy. Ive tried a few different brands and whenever they wouldnt leave my skin oily they would leave a horrendus white tint to my face. Ive wanted to try the Glossier suncream since it first came out but only this summer I got around to trying it. Its a clear water-gel suncream with spf 30. Its vegan and cruelty-free which is something really important I look for in beauty products. Its also noncomedogenic, breathable, lightweight and suitable for all skin types. You pay £20 for a 30ml bottle and its worth every penny! Ive yet to try it out under makeup but Id imagine its great because once you apply it to your skin, its undetectible. 


St Tropez Bronzing Water Face Mist

This product is a 10/10! Its a lightweight, natural looking tanning mist for your face. I have very fair skin and this doesnt leave me looking orange and it gives a lovely natural skin kissed glow. You just use a few sprays on clean skin or over makeup and it will bronze your skin gradually over a few hours. I like to use it at night time as my last step in my skincare routine. Its vegan, streak free, hydrating and it has a nice tropial scent so you dont have to worry about the horrible fake tan smell that normally comes with tanning. Ive been using this mist since last summer and it has never broken out my sensitive and spot prone skin. You get 80ml for £19.75 on Beauty Bay but other shops sell it for a slightly higher price. I got mine in a gift set last summer (yes, its still going strong) and I cant rememeber how much it cost me. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel

This is another product Ive been using since last summer and I adore it. This is my 3rd tube of it and I cant live without it. Since being in lockdown I havent really worn makeup but some days I want to feel a bit more put together so Ill use some of this gel and some mascara. Its a gel version of their infamous Dipbrow but I actually love this product more than the dipbrow itself. As I have microbladed eyebrows, I dont need to use much product so I just do a little brush of this in my eyebrows to tame and tint them. Its a waterproof formula, smudge proof and once it sets it can last up to 12 hours. Ive worn it for longer than 12 hours before and it still holds up. You can buy a mini or a full sized bottle for £19. I wear the shade "blonde" and its perfect for my hair colour. 

The Body Shop Vitamin C Liquid Peel

After seeing so many videos about these type of peeling skincare products I decided to try it for myself. Ive seen that some peels like dont actually work to remove your dead skin but I saw so many videos of this one working that I decided to test it for myself. I love any sort of skincare product that promots glowy skin. You use 2 pumps of this gel and rub it gently all over your face and neck. Within seconds you will start to see and feel white clumps of dead skin cells lift from your face. Its so gross but so satisfying too. It leaves my skin looking and feeling sooo soft and it gives a nice glow too. It 100% works (dont worry, I tested it out on my sink like some people and it did nothing) and I use it every Tuesday and Friday night to keep my skin exfoliated and fresh. Its £18.50 for a 145ml bottle and it comes with a pump so its practical.
