My summer saviours
Summer is well and truly here and I am in full swing with my brides weddings. The one thing I am always asked about is skincare. So I thought, why not share my summer saviour skin care products. I work as a freelance bridal wedding makeup and hair stylist. This gives me the flexibility to use the products I love and trust on my brides skin. I never recommend anything I have not tried and tested on my own skin first.
The one thing I cannot live without is my Neo Strata foaming glycolic wash. A combination of glycolic and lactobionic acid which gently exfoliates and promotes skin cell renewal. It minimises any skin irritation and from my first use, I haven’t personally experienced any burning or redness as is the case with some glycolic products.
My skin always looks noticeably brighter and smoother. I use my wash every night and follow up with my Lacura Vitacell 24hr cream and Vitacell eye cream Aldi. I will have another blog post discussing Aldi skin care and its comparison with much higher end brands containing the same ingredients soon. For now, I can honestly say based on the results I have seen with my skin, this skin care range gets the thumbs up from me. My skin has never looked so good 😊
My hair care must have is Swedish brand Maria Nila luminous colour shampoo and conditioner, 100% vegan and paraben and sulphate free. I struggle with my hair and found it difficult to find a product that didn’t weigh my fine hair down or strip moisture and fade my hair colour, until my lovely hair dresser started using Maria Nila products on my hair. The luminous colour range contains Pomegranate extract and colour guard complex to protect hair and reduce colour loss.
The colour refresh range from Maria Nila is amazing! There are no words, a nourishing masque with temporary colour pigments (washes out between 4-10 washes) means I can pep up my hair colour in between colouring. I have dark hair so am limited with the effects and colours I’m able to achieve. All you lighter haired beauties can have fun experimenting without the commitment, I would love to have unicorn hair and with colour refresh you can have fun and care for your hair at the same time 😊
I absolutely love my Huile de Magnolia face and body oil from French brand Leneor Greyl. A delicate mix of botanical oils, vitamin A and the scent of magnolia oil make me feel like im wrapping myself in gentle luxury. Not only is this oil quickly absorbed, which really helps during the summer, for those who love to tan, it helps extend your tan too. The magnolia scent isn’t over powering as some oils I have tried in the past, the hydration my skin feels is amazing.
