My Essential Summer Beauty Products | AD

summer beauty product essentials

Some of my summer beauty essentials for you here, all neatly packaged into one (relatively) concise video. Note that I use the word “essential” very loosely; perhaps the only real summer beauty essential is sunscreen, followed by a good, robust cleanser to get it off with. But all of the things in the following video make my summer that bit easier in terms of looking vaguely pulled-together; legs more presentable, hair less flat, eyes somewhat brighter and feeling less like balls of old twine.

By sheer fluke, quite a few of the products I’ve mentioned are on sale at the time of writing and might be worth a little look if you need to make some summery beauty updates. The Hylamide Glow is a particular favourite of mine and is currently £15 instead of £20 at Boots here*; a few drops of this every day, either neat or mixed into face cream/serum gives a beautiful, gradual sunkissed glow. Lucky Legs, a cooling leg reviver, is also on sale here* – £15.60, so a good few pounds off.

Anyway, take a look at the video, if only to see the quite startling golden glow from Kevyn Aucoin’s Celestial Bronzing Veil – I hate to be a bronzer bore, and I know I’ve gone on about them quite a lot this year, but this one is just fabulous.
