Ever since I had the Etude House Fresh Cherry Lip Tint in Orange, I have been developing a loving relationship with this orangey peach shade family. It looks so good on medium tan skin. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in Orange Impertinent is slightly on the orange side, so summery and perfect for the daytime.
Aesop Parsley Seed mask is lovely on dehydrated/dry skin. I can’t usually use clay masks because of the horrible way they pull on the skin and leave the skin stripped of any oil. If you have the same problem, you’ll be pleased to know this one didn’t do that!
Simple SPF 30 is a new find and definitely a keeper. It’s less that £5 a bottle. I have enough stocked up to get me through summer. Read more about it.
Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm. This stuff is so pleasant to use. It smells nice, cleanses without drying out the skin and just does that extra something. Having said that, it’s certainly not a holy grail balm for me. It’s definitely one that is reserved for a pamper day sort. The mini size I bought is empty and I wish I could just go out a buy the full size. That’s £46 though. In my opinion, overpriced.
REN Omega 3 Optimum Skin Oil. I have had this badboy for about two months. Honestly, didn’t think that 30ml bottle would last me longer than a month. I was using about five drops of this to start with, which reduced to two drops. Which is how I can tell, this works. It smells so potent, if that’s even possible. Incredible for reducing flakiness!

La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water is a hit or miss it seems. This canned spring water is so lovely to have when traveling in a hot/humid country and after a workout. My face and body tends to turn red and hot when I’m out and about in the sun. A spritz of this brings me relief and I just like it for that reason alone and that it doesn’t smell like rosewater. I am keen on trying the Avene one, which I think has more fame than the LRP.
CK One is the one that seems to come out every summer. It brings a kind of nostalgic feeling… makes me think of skirts, cocktails and chatting with friends. I finished the 100ml bottle last summer and got the 200ml bottle this summer. It layers really well with other scents and I haven’t quite found one as fresh smelling as it is.
I hope everyone is doing well. Happy summer xx
