Summer Pick ‘n’ Mix

Skincare, haircare and everything in between

Make-up 

Pixi Beauty Multibalms, £12 each
You can always rely on Pixi for tools to create a glowing skin look, and these Multibalms are the latest offering. These creamy, dewy sticks can be used on cheeks or lips to add radiance to the complexion. You’ll especially love Sheer Sculpt, the cocoa shade, if you want a soft and natural alternative to contouring.

Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil, £22
Yet another simple but brilliant addition from Bobbi Brown. Have you tried the Bobbi Brown Art Sticks, a bit like a lipstick in a pencil form? Well these are very similar, except they’re concealer in a pencil form. Available in an impressive shade range, these are designed for very pigmented touch ups on the go. With slightly more coverage than your average concealer, these will be ideal to conceal redness or blemishes when out and about.

Paperself Lashes, £12.50
Something a little more outlandish, these cute, unusual designs would be perfect for a festival or fancy dress party.

Body 

Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter Diamond Edition, £8
I always use the body care from Soap & Glory. In particular the creams are really nourishing but nice and light for using just before you tan. This summer they’ve remade The Righteous Butter with Diamond Dust which has given it a shimmering skin finish. Under each pot there’s a code, and every code allows you to win a prize.

Hair 

Colab Active Dry Shampoo, £3.99
This is one of the best dry shampoos I’ve tried. My hair is bleached and feels dry at the best of times, so dry shampoo can often leave it feeling completely parched. Strangely, my hair actually feels more hydrated after using this new Active variation from Colab. Completely colour-free, this refreshes your hair without any horrendous white patches.

Skin 

Garnier Pure Active Range, from £4.99
My cousin has been testing this Pure Active range for me. Designed to target adult acne, she’s been using the Micellar Water to remove her make-up before a thorough cleanse, and the scrub every so often as a leave-on mask. The matte control moisturiser is a great budget find to create a smooth, clear base before make-up.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme, £14.95
Every few days, a sweep of one of these pads is just the thing to brighten and illuminate the skin. I find these to work really well on any rough, dry patches in the skin, and they’re ideal if you’ve had a late night. Use the day before a big night out and your make-up will apply flawlessly.

Nip + Fab Dragons Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot, £25
This is my favourite discovery of the summer. This little red gel adds an instant hit of hydration to any serum. You can use it alone for an intensive hydrating treatment, or add a drop or two to your current skincare regime to increase the quenching power. I’ve been using this daily and it really helps to prevent your make-up from patching or disappearing through the day.
