Summer Beauty Buys

I’ve been shopping! I think I’ve become more of a shopping addict in my old ages. By the time I retire I fully expect to have bankrupted myself. Most likely it’s all the blogs I read, the majority of this shop is blogger inspired. So here’s me, playing Keeping up with the Joneses and just adding to haul culture. You love it.

Summer Beauty Buys The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Sorbet

I think that The Body Shop launched their Body Sorbets last summer. They are described as a “light and frosty body moisturiser” – pretty perfect for the hot weather right? I was intrigued, but it was only when I smelt the Virgin Mojito one that I knew I had to grab it. It smells amazing – just like a mojito (mint and lime for non-drinkers), so incredibly summery. The consistency is awesome, it’s kinda thick, a bit like a gel but it sinks into the skin instantly and feels cooling for several minutes afterwards. Win.

Summer Beauty Buys Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo

I’m a big fan of Bumble and Bumble and I knew that when I was having recent hair troubles they would have my back. The hard water down here in England is wrecking my hair and scalp and I now rely on the Sunday shampoo as a weekly deep cleanse to attempt to strip some of the mineral deposits out of my hair. It’s not completely resolved the problem, but it’s definitely a help. My hair now looks OK on Monday!

Summer Beauty Buys Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess

Oh yeah, the major blogger must have for summer time. I’ve actually been after this for a couple of years, but I especially love the bottle this year so I made sure to snap it up before it sells out. It’s a hot summer fragrance which is actually quite hard to define – a bit citrus, a splash coconut, lots of amber, maybe some flowers… really quite unique.

Summer Beauty Buys Rimmel Chin Up Buttercup

Next up, I bought the Rimmel ‘Chin Up, Buttercup’ nail polish as I was after a nice, bright yellow. I actually don’t like this, it looks like it has a bit of a greenish hue against my skintone. Ah well, can’t win ’em all.

Summer Beauty Buys Hawaiian Tropic SPF

Lastly, the most important item – some suncream. This is a handbag friendly size with a high SPF so perfect for on the go. It also smells unbelievably good with mango and coconut. I actually love it, it’s a joy to use! It is glittery though but I just don’t care, I just want it on me.

That was my little summer-ready haul. I also got the extremely unglamorous necessities of a handbag sized antiperspirant and a tonne of anti-histamines. #SummerProblems indeed.
