Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Face SPF 30!

Hey Beauty Lovers! Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Face SPF 30 Protective Sun Lotion - is a mouthful to pronounce yet makes a neat bottle to keep in your beach bag this summer! I have been swayed by Hawaiian Tropic sun protective products this year, have never tried them before and now I am absolutely loving just about everything about them: texture, skincare properties, scent and price! What's great about this facial Protective Sun Lotion is that it keeps your skin moisturised but it's oil free and feels very light on the skin, it's also great as a make-up primer. Another plus point is that it's very water resistant, which means you won't need to reapply it as often. The delicious coconut scent makes you want to find the nearest beach and just relax!

L'Oreal Wave Creating Spray!

Hey Beauty Lovers! The new L'Oreal Wave Creating Spray is a heat protective spray, which activates waves on straight hair when it comes in contact with heat. It is perfect for that bohemian relaxed beach wave hair. Wave Creating Spray adds a texture to the hair without that crunchy feel that some salt sprays can do. For best results spray the product on damp hair and blow-dry half way, then create two or more topknots and blow-dry further and as a final step finish blow-drying the hair while scrunching the waves upwards. It's he quickest way of creating beach wave hair without a curling tong. I find the hair looks even better the night after it's slept on, gives you that sexy Brigitte Bardot bed-hair.

Moroccanoil Treatment Review!

Hey Beauty Lovers! Moroccanoil Treatment is probably the most talked about and loved haircare amongst all beauty and hair professionals. Moroccanoil Treatment is an Argan oil that deeply nourishes and hydrates hair, while replenishing lost proteins for strength. It's also rich in fatty acids and omega-3 oils for that beautiful natural healthy and shiny hair. Can be used on damp hair and dry hair, when applying it concentrate on mid-length and especially the ends and remember a few drops go a long way! The scent of Moroccanoil hair products is very rich and luxurious. It's hard to pick up what exactly the scent is, but I think there is jasmine and rose amongst other notes, whatever it is it leaves the hair smell luscious.

Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect SPF 25!

Hey Beauty Lovers! I have never been the one for shimmer when it comes to body products, however I have been converted by Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Protective Sun Lotion 25 SPF. The more tan you get the more flattering it looks, the bronze shimmer highlights the fresh tan and gives you that bronze goddess skin. The sunshine makes the sheen looks gorgeous, while leaving skin hydrated even after exposure to the sun. Hawaiian Tropic delicious coconut scent makes the sun protective lotion application so much more fun!

SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque!

Hey Beauty Lovers! As far as a clay facial goes this one gets top points! SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque has deep purifying properties without that super drying and pulling of the skin, which clay masques are renowned for. This clay masque however feels very gentle on the skin while lifting impurities and declogging pores leaving the skin look polished and clear. I have an oily/combo skin type that is also acne prone, and generally clay facials tend to break me out as they pull all the impurities to the surface, however I have no break-outs to report after this clay masque! 

Natural earth clay is combined with a hydroxy acid, together they work on exfoliating the skin and balancing the oils. A large almond size is enough to cover the face and neck thinly, leave it to dry for 10-15 minutes then gently wash off with a face cloth and warm water. This clay facial masque was designed for all skin types and can be used up to two times a week.

Minute Make-Up: Bright Lip!

Hey Beauty Lovers! Sometimes a gal only has a minute to go, which makes it a little challenging when it comes to beauty, however a bright lipstick can easily save the day! Make sure you have a good base to start with, use a light to medium coverage foundation and quickly conceal any imperfections - any bright lipstick will pull the red [spots, fresh acne scars] on your skin, making them stand out more. The aim is a flawless dewy/glowy fresh looking skin. 

A little trick when going for a nothing-on-the-eye look + bright lip combo is to inject a touch of a similar lip colour tone on the cheeks. So if your lip colour has a warm-tone go for a warm-tone blush, vice versa if it's a blue-tone pink lip colour go with a cool-tone pink blush. In this case I'm wearing one of my top fave bright Topshop Lipstick shades, which is Infrared [orange red] - combined with bareMinerals Ready Blush in The One [warm peachy pink].

Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask

Hey Beauty Lovers! Lately I have been on a Moroccanoil kick. There is just something about Moroccanoil haircare that makes hair look so pretty, the way it falls, the shape it takes. Restorative Hair Mask is a deep treatment that hydrates hair making it look healthy and shiny. Just apply it for a few minutes on mid-lengths and tips avoiding the roots as with any hydrating mask and then rinse off.

Cosmetics a la Carte Fresh & Clear Cleanser

Hey Beauty Lovers! Cosmetics a la Carte Fresh & Clear Cleanser is enriched with Vitamin C, which lifts impurities and unclogs pores leaving skin looking clear and super smooth. It's a creamy cleanser with tiny grains that have exfoliating properties. After massaging the cleanser into the skin I love to wash it off with a muslin cloth for further exfoliation, which leaves skin feeling fresh and looking bright!
