Summer is coming to a close, and in honour of all the summer days I've enjoyed these past months I thought I'd rave about my favourite beauty products. Some, of course, I will keep using through autumn...
Hair care products
This summer I cut my hair several times, currently it's at collarbone length and I love it. My hair is wavy and frizzy so I've been straightening it a lot this summer, since I find it easier to manage that way. However my hair tends to look oily by the second day and I will not heat style my hair more than once a week. Luckily I found three amazing products that solved all of my hair problems.
Yves Rocher Botanical Hair Repair Oil
This is a pre-poo (pre-wash) oil is enriched with restorative babassu, jojoba and macadamia oils to nourish the scalp and strengthen the hair. Contains more than 99% natural ingredients. I apply it twice a week to dry hair before shampooing, leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash my hair. My hair feels soft, hydrated and virtually frizz-free!
Aussie Miracle Recharge (Take the Heat Conditioning Spray)
This product is enriched with Australian jojoba seed oil, and also contains the hair-penetrating ingredient panthenol. I've used quite a few heat protectants in the past and some tend to tangle my hair, this product does the exact opposite. It is both a heat protectant and a detangling leave-in conditioner.
Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo (Mega Instant)
I love this dry shampoo! It smells great and it cleanses and revives my hair in a matter of minutes!
Here's a list of my top 5 summer make-up favourites:
Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara
I'm obsessed with this mascara - It gives me the "false lash effect".
Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara (Browny Brows 02)
I've used all kinds of eyebrow products over the years and this is my everyday go-to brow product. It makes my brows look denser and perfectly defined all day.
Essence Stay All Day 16h Concealer (20 Soft Beige)
A long-lasting concealer with light-reflecting pigments. Its creamy, soft texture, makes it very easy to apply. Makes all my skin imperfections disappear. Love it!
Catrice Prime And Fine Mattifying Powder - Waterproof
This translucent powder withstands humidity and mattifies the skin for hours.
Catrice Made To Stay Smoothing Lip Polish (060 Mission PINKpossible)
This is my favourite lip colour. This product is amazing; it combines the colour of a lipstick, the durability of stains and lustre of a gloss in one product.
These two were my shower must-haves this summer:
Yves Rocher Exfoliating Shower Gel (Organic Raspberry)
The 100% natural fruit seeds gently exfoliate the skin. Its gentle formula allows for daily use. It's also paraben free and has a biodegradable formula!
Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser (Indulging Honey)
I find in-shower lotions to be the most convenient way to moisturise. This one if my favourite because I just adore the sweet honey scent.
That's all for now. These were my 10 favourites beauty product this summer. What were your favourites of the summer?
