Summer Products

Summer Products
So apparently it is currently summer, I mean what says summer like it chucking it down with rain everyday, am I right? But with the potential of some sunnier, warmer days (or a holiday to a sunny destination) I wanted to share with you today some of my favourite products that I think are perfect for warmer weather.
Summer Products
As someone with frizzy hair, hair serums and oils are essential all year round, but especially when humidity is high, as it can be in the summer. My two favourites at the moment are the Garnier The Sleek Restorer Oil and the OGX Hydrating Macadamia Oil Dry Styling Oil. Both of these product smell amazing and work really well on both wet and dry hair, so I use one of them after washing and then after I have styled my hair as well. 

Another hair product that I have been really liking recently is the Toni and Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray. I like using this when I plait my hair in the evening before bed, to help the waves form a little better and then after I take them out in the morning to help the waves have a little more hold and keep them in place for longer. 

Summer Products
For base products, if it is really hot or I am spending the day by the pool or the beach I will skip base products completely, but for when I do want to wear something on my face I will always choose a lightweight product, something like the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue (could I mention this product anymore times?!) or the L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation. Both of these are really lightweight on the skin so you won't feel like you are wearing any makeup and they both have a lovely finish that leaves your skin looking really natural and as if you are not wearing any makeup at all.

I also swear by cream products for the summer months as I think that they sit a little better on the skin and have a bit of a lighter, dewier finish to the skin. Some of my current favourites are the Collection Speedy Highlighter in Pearly Sheen, the No7 Pop & Glow in Classic Rose and the Maybelline Master Contour V-Shape in Light. With these three products you have blush, highlighter and bronzer/contour. 

In terms of eye makeup, waterproof mascara is an essential. I don't have too many in my collection (so any recommendations are welcome) but the one that I do love is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara. This is the perfect volumising and lengthening mascara that really is waterproof and smudge-proof. I used this last year on my holiday in Spain and it didn't budge, even after going swimming.

So there are my go-to summer products. What do you love for the summer months?
