The weather would suggest otherwise, but we are well and truly in Summer mode now. Just because the British weather isn’t living up to expectations (whatever those were anyway) Ibiza, Greece and the South of France certainly are.
Which means you want the products that will help maintain your natural summer glow, right?
There are so many skincare products out there now, endorsed by so many different celebrities, it can sometimes be hard to know or trust what is best for your skin.
Whether you’re looking for a simple moisturiser, or the best way to take your make-up off without damaging your skin - here are some amazing hair and beauty products that will fit perfectly in your travel bag.
Institut Esthederm Paris products: The deep pore cleanser and the light buffing mask are both amazing luxury products that will contribute to smooth and fresh summer skin. They’re not exactly cheap, but the price certainly reflects the quality. These products are certainly a pay day treat, but one we are sure you won't regret!
Revitalash Aquablur: The brand that Meghan Markle reportedly loves. The new eye gel from Revitalash is so refreshing. This hydrating eye gel is a real treat. It isn’t cheap, but you certainly get what you pay for with this product. You only need a tiny pump per application, so you get your money's worth in the long run.
I’ve been using this for two weeks now and my skin feels more hydrated and awake. I love this product.
Bioderma products: We were sent a variety of different Bioderma products, but the one that stood out was most definitely the BB cream. Having never used a BB cream before, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I’ve never been a huge fan of wearing foundation so it was nice to try something that feels lighter but also provides the necessary coverage to hide blemishes.
Others included the Sensibio Rich - a soothing cream for sensitive skin which nourishes, moisturises and protects, the Sebium Pore Refiner cream and Adoterm Shower Oil for dry skin which smells amazing.
Face It: This love heart shaped cloth in a box is the perfect size to pop your hands in and comfortably scrub your face.
Switching to something environmentally friendly is rewarding and at 12.99, there’s simply no need to keep fleeting money away on face wipes. It’s reusable - all you have to do it add water to cleanse and exfoliate. Lovely.
This is the perfect gift for a beauty-conscious environmental queen.
Collosol eau de lait: If you would prefer to use a makeup remover - this could be the perfect one.
It’s smooth on the skin, smells amazing, and works an absolute treat… Because of the gorgeous bottle it comes in, we wouldn't mind receiving this as a gift either.
Too cool for school coconut milky mist: The perfect product to refresh your face. Smells amazing, feel even better when on, and comes in a trendy bottle.
By far my favourite product out of them all, the soft spray is light on application. I now swear by this product and take it everywhere with me. A must have - buy one here.
Arbonne’s RE9 Advanced Prepwork Range: This new skincare line is focused on early maintenance of skin. The products formulated with a superfood cocktail of ingredients that contain vitamins C and E, omegas and pea protein with antioxidant and phytonutrient properties to revitalise and refresh your complexion.
Overnight Face Jelly: Formulated with beauty boosting Vitamin C, Kakadu Plum and Raspberry Ceremide, this gelee mask feeds the skin to deliver a naturally radiant appearance, £36.00.
Micellar Water: No rinse, no hassle. Simply soak a cotton pad with this cleanser to instantly remove impurities. Micelles trap dirt, makeup and daily grime while coconut water conditions skin with hydration, £19.00.

Twist & Spritz atomiser: The perfect handbag gadget to carry and give yourself that much-needed spritz whilst you’re out. FIll it up with your favourite scent and take it anywhere. We recommend keeping one handy for after a work-out, or just a general top up scent during the day. What’s also great about these is they’re aircraft and travel friendly.
Puff Me hair product: I’ve always been nervous to use anything other than anti-frizz serum on my hair, as it’s pretty thin. This product adds volume without damaging your hair. It comes in a small handy tube, perfect to travel with as it’s under 100ml.
Hair grips: The perfect all-rounder hair accessory; you could wear these with a formal outfit, or dressed down to add a bit of sparkle.
I am in love with these hair slides from Alice & Blair. The Swarovski Pearl Hair Pins are super classy and sophisticated, and the Stella Swavorski Slide is fun and glitzy. What I love most about these pins are how pain free and smooth they are to take in and out. I have lost way too many hairs taking out pins and slides, but these ticked all the boxes.

Brow shaper: Using tweezers isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Unless you’re hard as nails, most of us find ourselves gritting our teeth and wiping our watery eyes when trying to pluck those annoying stray brows.
This brow shaper was so handy in getting rid of a mass amount of unwanted brow at once - pain free and easy. The future of brow shaping lies with this tool.
