July 19 Box

That's more like it! It's finally a bit like summer!

Well, I've been away already but still have a fabulous trip to Northumberland over the August Bank Holiday weekend to look forward.  However, I've assumed that you're still off to sunnier climes in the next few months and so this is a bit of a travel essentials box.

SEACRET SPA FOOT CREAM WITH TEA TREE OIL / 150ML/ RRP £29.99

Your feet are OUT!  It's summer, whether you're here or abroad your feet are on show.  The funny thing is that summer dries feet out whereas during winter, they're kept all warm and soft in socks and boots so in summer, when they are battered by open shoes you really need to soften your soles.  This is a rich foot cream with a velvety blend of moisturizing shea and cocoa butters, known for their skin-soothing properties. This nourishing cream, infused with antibacterial tea tree oil, leaves your skin feeling pure and refreshed.  

 

ULTRASUN PROFESSIONAL PROTECTION FOR FACE / 25ML / £17.00

This is the Rolls Royce of face sun screens and it is one of the few products that, actually, you should apply both in winter and summer.  This handbag size tube is perfect for travel and is designed for very sensitive skin.

 

GATINEAU FLORACIL PLUS GENTLE EYE MAKE UP REMOVER / 118ML / RRP £19.00

I've chosen this as during summer, many of us switch to waterproof mascara because we are in and out of the pool being gorgeous.  No one wants that look ruined by running mascara so this product means you can remove gently, without rubbing, assured that Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel and Vitamin E are protecting and hydrating the eye area as well.

TISSERAND AROMATHERAPY LAVENDER & CHAMOMILE TREATMENT ROLLER BALL / 10ML / RRP £6.25

I love Tisserand.  They are one of the very first brands ever to sell aromatherapy oils way before it became trendy.  This product is for people like me, who don't really like travel, who don't really like being cooped up in planes or cars.  Designed to calm and soothe it can also be used to aid sleep if travel isn't an issue for you.  Keep it in your handbag all summer - travelling home from work can be just as stressful!

 BELLAPIERRE WATERPROOF GEL LIP LINER PENCIL IN CINNAMON / FULL SIZE / RRP £20.00

Holiday make up usually takes a back seat during the day for me (except for the QMS tinted moisturiser from last month which is awesome), but evenings are a bit different.  A key help is a good lip pencil as it can just accentuate lips a little bit more than just a lipstick or a gloss.  This mineral lip liner by Bellapierre is also waterproof (and cruelty free) and is in a fabulously neutral shade for all skin tones.

GATINEAU COLLAGENE EXPERT SMOOTHING EYE PADS / SINGLE USE / RRP £8.00

I know, I didn't think these would cost £8 either but they do.

I wanted to include this as these are fabulous for long haul flights, days when you're tired and your skin just needs a pick up - that's when I use these.  Gatineau is such an amazing skincare brand that I wanted you to try these as they are perfect for travel.  When you get a moment, sink back, pop these on for ten minutes and remember you've worked hard all year for this break - enjoy every minute!
