It’s finally June – and summer starts here! We’re celebrating 2017’s summer-tastic beauty with a special edit of our favourite summer products, all bursting with sunshine
Dermalogica Daily Defense Block SPF15 – when you’re out enjoying the summer weather, nothing is more important than the security of UV protection. An absolute summer must-have, this multi-tasking daytime lotion helps to condition and promote skin recovery, while defending against skin-ageing UV rays. It beats dryness and leaves a shine-free finish, with no chalky residue. By using Daily Defense every day this summer, you’ll enjoy healthy, soft and great-looking skin.
Decelor Beach Body Ready – this gorgeous new kit from Decleor gives you everything you need for the perfect summer body. Massage the firming and detoxing Aromessence Svelt Body Refining Oil Serum all over your body, or on targeted areas, such as hips, thighs or stomach, for a toning, slimming effect. Systeme Corps also firms and is intensely hydrating, rich in essential fatty acids to look after even the driest, thirstiest skin. Exfoliate once a week with the brilliant 1000 Grains Exfoliator, delivering double hydration and double exfoliation, then massage Gradual Glow all over for a beautiful and natural-looking sun-kissed glow.
Elemis British Botanical Shower Cream – if you’re a sucker for the British summer, this aromatic shower cream harnesses the powerhouse of ingredients grown in the idyllic British countryside. Expertly blended with soothing lavender, chamomile and uplifting geranium and palma rosa, the omega-rich oil works to hydrate and nourish the skin, with organic oats and rosemary to gently cleanse.
Eco Tan Smooth and Cleanse – Smooth and Cleanse perfectly conditions in preparation for flawless summer self-tanning: the triple action gel contains exfoliating granules to remove the upper layers of dead cells, special microdermabrasion crystals to refine the fresh skin layers and a fruit AHA to optimise your skin’s pH. A blend of non-oily moisturisers, including hyaluronic acid, algal extract and olive oil esters, work to nourish, soften and smooth your skin, along with seven essential oils to add a refreshing, natural fragrance.
St Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion Medium – now available in a darker shade than the original light version, you only need to spend three minutes of your daily beauty regime building a gorgeous glow. Giving you a sun-kissed, gradual tan, and providing up to 24-hour moisturisation, this new tanning active blend, with melanin technology, allows for a deeper natural tan. Jojoba helps the product to develop faster, the luxurious lather helps to guide application and this super-cool tanning innovation also fades gradually and evenly.
Elemis Total Glow Bronzing Body Lotion – another option for beautifully bronzed summer skin is this multitasking and decadent body lotion. Instantly moisturising and hydrating the skin, it delivers a flattering sun-kissed glow while protective antioxidants, including green tea extract, even skin tone. Formulated with elderberry seed and Abyssinian essential oils, it nourishes and conditions the skin, with red algae for long-lasting firmness and hydration. This skin boosting cocktail is also infused with Vegetan™, naturally derived from wheat, to subtly build a natural golden tan to the upper layers of the skin. In two to three days, your body has a healthy glow. Best of all, the formula is combined with ground breaking technology that works to naturally mask the distinctive aroma of a self-tan; delicate floral notes and uplifting lemon and patchouli oils capture the mood of summer and leave skin deliciously scented.
Fake Bake Five Minute Mousse – new-in at Beauty Flash, Fake Bake’s 5 Minute Mousse is a lightweight, super-fast drying and transfer-resistant mousse, allowing you to achieve beautifully bronzed skin – instantly. Providing a burst of bronze, for a tan that’s ready to wear, this product is perfect for a last minute summer night out. The natural golden glow continues to develop after instant colour is washed off, so you’ll get long-lasting results, too.
