This week’s show is all about getting your beauty stash sorted for summer, so whether you’re travelling abroad or planning a stay-cation at home, we’ve got everything you need!
A gorgeous offer from Decleor
Today’s Today’s Special Value is a Decleor skincare kit that’s perfect for combating the problems of hot, holiday weather.
Heat and humidity causes your skin to perspire, which requires lighter textures that still offer intense hydration benefits. Along with sunscreen and priming capabilities, the new CC cream (currently only available with us for the whole of the summer), also works to keep skin looking plump and hydrated.
Hydrotenseur Anti-Fatigue Eye Serum offers intense hydration and anti-ageing benefits, but in a fluid, lightweight serum – perfect for counteracting both sun wrinkles and travel dehydration (especially if you’re flying long-haul).
The lip area has never been more popular with Decleor since the launch of the luxurious Intense Nutrition Lip Balm, where we have spent every month since launch trying to keep it in stock (and failing).
Combining all this with a supersize Hand Cream (which encompasses the Decleor all-round salon approach to beauty), this product addresses the ageing of your hands, nails and cuticles, in a gorgeous, aromatic formulation – a true travel essential.
Top tip: massage extra product into your cuticles and onto naked nails, as summer sunshine always gives you the best chance for longer, stronger nails.
This whole regime starts with the perfect hot-weather cleanser in the form of the cooling Micellar Water, which in hot months can even be kept in the fridge. This will also help to remove SPFs, including once-a-day application formulas.
During the summer months, as soon as you go indoors in the evening, make sure you remove your SPF – this product makes it so quick and easy! You should do this before applying after-sun products, or cooling and calming gels like SBC.
If you’re going out for a late meal or drink, reapply your make-up and do your full cleanse when you get home, following with your usual treatments.
If you’re stretched for time on a summer morning, a swipe of your Micellar Water will prep your skin for SPF and make-up, while also removing sweat, oil and any thick residue from your lotions and potions.
A hero favourite: SBC Arnica Gel
If your skin feels puffy in the morning and you notice that your face doesn’t seem to ‘wake up’ until later in the day, this gel is fabulous, and can be used as a face mask or serum either under or in replacement of your other products. It also works as an eye mask!
I love keeping this in the fridge, and soaking some cotton pads in either water or Liz Earle Eyebright, and sandwich them up with Arnica Gel (so they look like a cookie), and leave them in a plastic box in the fridge. Simply peel open, and apply to your eyes as and when you need them.
In clinics, this is used as your conductivity gel in electrical treatments, and you can also use with electrical devices that require a conductivity gel, for a more professional approach to your at-home treatment.
This kit features a stunning lipstick and a hair spray – what else do you need for a fabulous evening look?
The lipstick has been designed as a conditioning and moisturising treat, which has been infused with vitamins, and is one of the easiest ways to carry off a no-make-up look (including a no eye make-up look), and still rock a fashion statement to look groomed and polished.
I love a naked face paired with this deep crimson colour – the ultimate catwalk-inspired make-up. The shade has been designed to make teeth look whiter and eyes brighter, and could easily be your new quick glam look that oozes confidence.
The Glamour Tease Hair Texture Spray is like a dry shampoo with added benefits, offering medium hold and a texturising, volumising effect. It’s perfect for hot and humid weather to refresh your style, and is a real handbag essential.
Even if you have curly hair, it won’t frizz because of the lovely dry mist, which also works to help refresh your scalp, re-shape and re-texturise the look of your locks.
There’s an hour-long show devoted to this gorgeous brand coming up on the 24th June. Here are two of my favourite kits from the brand:
There are still loads of shades left, and it comes with some of Becca’s most iconic products (the Under Eye Brightening Corrector). This kit gives a modern, fresh look to your skin – perfect for summer weddings.
For anyone suffering in the sunshine, this three-piece kit is great if you want lightweight, oil-absorbing coverage, with just a hint of shimmer on your cheeks and lids. It comes with
- Ever Matte Poreless Primer to keep your skin shine-free
- Aqua Luminous Foundation for a light, comfortable skin feel
- Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal – a gorgeous universal colour
