I wanted to update my summer fragrance but I didn’t want to commit to buying an expensive perfume, so I did a little shopping for some summery fragrancy stuff.
The first place I went to was the Body Shop and I purchased the Indian Night Jasmine Fragrance Mist (£7.50). This stuff smells seriously gorgeous, it’s got a really seductive oriental, floral jasmine smell without being too overpowering. I also bought the matching shower gel (£6.50) and body butter (£10). Once these products are layered together they smell divine! I also bought the Aloe & Soft Linen scented candle from the Body Shop (£10), this is such a fresh, light scent that lingers hours after it has been lit.
Next I went to Lush and bought the R&B Hair Moisturiser (£11.25). In the summer my hair completely dries out so I needed a product that will re-infuse my hair with some moisture. This hair moisturiser has lots of nice oils like coconut and olive oil to strengthen the hair, it is meant for thick, course, curly, very dry or Afro-Caribbean hair so I wouldn’t recommend for the fine haired ladies. I rub a tiny bit of the product on the end of my hair and it tames the frizzies whilst giving my hair a healthy sheen. Also worth mentioning is the amazing smell of this product, it has a strong citrus scent and makes me think of being on a tropical island 🙂
I then got the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Orange Flower & Chamomile Limited Edition (£19.75). As far as I can tell this has the same formulation as the normal cleanse and polish, but the smell of the orange flower and chamomile is just incredible. I think I’m going to stock up on these as it is a limited edition.
Finally, I bought Kiehls Ultra Light Daily Moisturiser SPF 50 (£31). I’ve been using Cliniques Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Moisturiser SPF 20 but that feels way too heavy on my skin in this heat, plus it doesn’t have a high enough SPF. The Kiehls moisturiser has a light texture, which initially feels heavy on the skin, but once it’s absorbed the heaviness disappears. It’s the perfect make-up base if you just wear face powder or BB cream during the summer.
