Summer must haves

During the summer I’m obsessed with taking care of my skin and hair. I will be sharing my go to’s for this summer and new products that I have tried out that I can’t live without

Better Bod Bronzer by Tarte

This product is the reason I sold my spray tan machine. It honestly puts other self tanners to shame. I’ve never been one to suntan or use tanning beds so I’ve literally tried every self tanning product out there. I’m so happy I purchased this. Better Bod Bronzer is like makeup for your body. It covers every imperfection and gives you an instant tan so you don’t have to wait 6-8 hours for it to kick in. The best part about this tanner is it does not rub off on clothes and is sweat proof. This is my go to self tanner for life. This product can be purchased at Sephora.

Mirrored Sunglasses by Prada

Im so in love with the mirrored sunglasses that have hit the stores this season.  I must admit I’m always wearing sunglasses all year round, sunny or cloudy days. Protecting my eyes from the sun is extremely important to me. It’s worth investing in a good pair, that way you know they have the UV protectant lenses… whereas cheap ones may not. These mirrored glasses are so perfect for summer. I decided to go with the rose gold ones by Prada. They can be purchased at ‘Sunglass Hut’. If you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars there is a similar pair that I also purchased from ‘Guess’.

L’Oreal Face sunscreen
I used to use neutrogena SPF 90 for my face but I found it to be very greasy and thick. So I decided to give the SPF 50 by L’Oreal a try. On the bottle it said oil free and non-greasy. Exactly what I was looking for. Well this is definitely my new favourite facial sunscreen. The best part about this product is that it’s tinted so it gives your face a natural bronze and leaves it feeling silky and not greasy. This can be purchased at ‘Winners’.

Farsali Rose Gold Elixir
I’m absolutely obsessed with this stuff. Some of you may have seen it on many instagram makeup tutorials mainly being used as a primer. I love to use this under my eyes before applying concealer. It mattes the under eyes so you don’t see any fine lines. I also use Farsali on my lips I find it to be the best moisturizer, better than any lip balm I’ve used. This product smells so amazing and best of all it is all natural. This has improved the over all appearance of my skin making it appear youthful. This can be purchased at Sephora or

Cover FX highlighter
After I’ve applied all my foundation I love to highlight certain areas of my face. Cover FX is a liquid highlighter and I find it works much better than the powdered ones. All you need is a tiny drop of this liquid magic. A little bit goes a long way. I use the color celestial. I apply cover FX above my cheek bones and on the tip of my nose. This product makes my skin glow and appear flawless. This can be purchased at Sephora.

Amore Pacific Face Mist
Keeping your face feeling fresh and hydrated is very important. I love using the face mist by Amore Pacific. This product has all natural ingredients and doesn’t bother my skin. I carry this in my purse everyday. Whenever I’ve been out for a while and feel like I need to hydrate my skin I just spray this and immediately feel better. This is the best for those nights out, long car rides or travelling and being stuck on a plane all day. This can be purchased at Sephora.

Elizabeth&James Dry Shampoo
I’ve talked about this before on my instagram page. Elizabeth&James is the best dry shampoo I’ve ever used. It makes my hair feel so clean and smells amazing. I use this all the time. This would be amazing for camping. Or beach days. It instantly feels like I just washed by hair.
This can be purchased at Sephora

Repair Rescue by Schwarzkopf
During the summer months the sun can be very damaging to the hair. I love to use Rescue Repair sealed ends on the ends of my hair. About every 7-10 I will use this product as a healing treatment and apply it to my entire hair, letting it sit on for about 5 minutes. This product makes my hair feel so healthy and soft it has also definitely prevented me from getting split ends. I highly recommend this product. Especially if you plan on vacations where the sun is super strong. This can be purchased at
