Whether you're booking a last minute holiday, having a 'staycation' or packing for the holiday you've spent months waiting for, here is a list of the top summer-proof beauty essentials you'll want to have at your side.
Sunburn? Shaving rash? Sore from waxing? Dry skin as a result of lots of swimming? All of these are common problems in the summer and Aloe products are the solution to them all. This particular gel is made from 100% organic Aloe Vera and mixed with Calendula and Chamomile to sooth any pain, cool the skin and calm redness. As it's water based it won't block pores and is absorbed quickly. I've found it works well when applied under make-up as an alternative to your usual moisturiser -perfect for sun burnt faces!
For those of you who feel naked without your foundation, your ideal product for summer will be this waterproof gel foundation - apply it in the morning, go about your day and it'll still be intact at night time.
If you're a regular to BTBS's Beauty Buzz then you'll have heard of this innovative sun protection product already. The light mineral based powder is perfect for sun protection over the top of your make up and saves all the sticky pore-clogging hassle of applying sun creams and oils. You can read my more detailed review and find out where to buy this product in an earlier post of mine, here . (£23)
