My Top 5 Favourite Products For Summer

1. Kiehl’s rare earth deep pore daily cleanser.

This is honestly the best cleanser I have ever used. It gently exfoliates my skin without being irritating and helps to keep oiliness and blemishes at bay. It is a little pricey at around £18 a bottle, but it lasts a few months and works brilliantly – so its worth it!

2.  Soap and Glory ‘girligo’ body moisturising mist.

This moisturizing mist not only smells fantastic, but it absorbs really quickly too, perfect for when you’re in a hurry or don’t feel like using a heavy moisturizer on a hot summer day.

3. Dove summer glow

This gradual tanner gives my skin a natural, glowing tan without the awful smell. It also goes on smoothly, does not go streaky and can be applied just like a normal moisturizer with your hands (as long as you give them a wash afterwards!)

I find that the shade ‘light to medium’ works best on my skin tone.

4. Aussie aussome volume dry shampoo

This is honestly one of the best dry shampoo’s that I have ever used. It doesn’t leave any sort of white cast even on dark hair and gives my hair fantastic volume which lasts all day.

It also smells fantastic, which is a bonus.

5. Kiehl’s ultra facial oil free lotion

This cream keeps my skin feeling soft whilst looking matte and doesn’t cause me to break out. It also sinks into the skin really quickly so you don’t have to wait around before putting on your makeup

How To: Easy Overnight Waves/Texture

When searching the internet for easy ways to get curls in my hair overnight I came across this extremely easy trick to add gorgeous curls into any hair type! My hair is long, straight and flat so it can be a challenge to get any sort of texture in it without using hot tools – which takes forever! However, since I started twist braiding my hair while it’s damp I haven’t had to curl my hair for weeks and just wake up with amazing natural volume and casual soft waves.

All I do is part my damp hair into two sections and then tightly twist braid it and put it into two buns at the nape of my neck. If you aren’t sure how to do this, follow this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsGuWokn47A

The next morning all I need to do gently undo the braids and buns and add some hairspray, brilliant if you’re in a rush!

The waves also look amazing thrown into a high ponytail (as seen below).
