SUMMER PREP: BRITISH SUMMER

The Great British Summer has arrived/is on it's way, I'm not too sure. But in preparation for the warmer months there are always a few products that I reach for. One of the first products I reach for is a foot pumice; I don't know about you but when my feet are finally free of socks they dry up and go flakey and disgusting.  This year I have been using the Lush Pumice Power which is a foot soap that has a rough texture to scrub away dead skin and leave your feet feeling lovely and soft. Next up I defluff my legs; I usually use razors, which leave my skin dry, but this year I have been using the Parissa Wax strips*. They leave my skin soft and fluff free for longer than shaving would and are so easy to use. You can use them on yourself if your brave enough but I always get someone to rip them off for me, otherwise I won't pull hard enough. 

My skin is very dry throughout the year but in the Summer months it does tend to be a little more on the normal side; letting me get away with a nice light moisturiser like the Korres Santorini Vine Body Milk which smells absolutely amazing and leaves my skin so smooth and soft. I like to use this daily as it sinks into my skin incredibly quickly and gives me that holiday feeling because of the scent. I always love a shimmering blush and bronzer when it's warmer as I feel it looks more natural than a matte bronzer and I couldn't have been happier when I found out that Estee Lauder were releasing a face palette as part of their Bronze Goddess collection. The Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Multi Palette has been giving me that natural glow from within this year with it's beautiful highlight, blush and shimmering bronzer. When these are all used together my skin looks bronzed and natural due to the shimmered products. And last but not least a Summer scent; my current favourites are the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess, not pictured here as it arrived late, and Daisy by Marc Jacobs. Daisy is a very light fresh flowery scent that I love to spritz all over my body. I love changing up my perfumes so I can still smell them throughout the day and like to match them to my mood. This scent is fresh and reminds me of a day out in the sunshine. 

What are your go to Summer prep products?
