Just as a pointer, the product links below will link to a site that currently has a sale or money off, discounts etc on these items - please do look around online though as I don't know how long they will be at low prices, or available. I also go through to most of the online shops via Quidco.com so I actually earn cashback while spending money on my discounted goods! So not only do I shop around and save money, I actually earn money the more I spend! Its a shopaholics dream! Not that I'm a shopaholic of course....ahem...moving on...
So my first Beauty Love for summer is Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Active Concentrate which is currently in the Third Off French Pharmacy Sale at Escentual.com for the bargain price of £6.00. I use this product as a serum, under my moisturiser and it basically helps to prevent breakouts, which is exactly what I need in the summer.
The second product is a bit of a well kept secret actually, and I actually used it in a little trial on my best friend. I chose 3 of the better moisturisers for oily/shiny/sweaty skin and applied them to different areas on the skin. A good few hours later I checked and this was the only area that had no shine! Having tried a LOT of matte moisturisers, from drugstore to very high end, the winning summer moisturiser is.....drumroll please....Clean and Clear Oil Free Moisturiser, currently on offer at £3.59 but on Buy One Get One Free! What I love about this moisturiser, apart from it helping with breakouts and staying matte all day, is that for the first couple of hours after applying it, it feels tingly and cold! So it physically cools your face down after overheating in the bathroom, this makes it invaluable! And unlike most products that cause a cold or tingly effect, this is suitable for even the most sensitive of skins.
My third product which I use for many different things, is Avene Thermal Spring water. I buy a big can of this plus a little handbag sized one. I use this to spritz and cool down, and also to set my makeup. Because its the famous Avene Spring Water, its actually proven naturally antibacterial and skin soothing - perfect for eczema and dermatitis sufferers. I also use this on kids scraped knees to wash out dirt without dragging their sore knees about, and of course it doesn't sting. Anyway, my love of Avene is for another day as I could rave about their products all day long!
These are my skin saviours and literal MUST HAVES! Tomorrow I will go into what makeup saviours I have, as no one likes a sweaty top lip or melted smeared foundation (you know, like you leave behind on your mobile after getting off a long and sweaty call!). I know sweaty faces aren't the most glamorous of subjects and a lot of people are lucky indeed to never have this problem, but there are a lot who do, and even more so when we are abroad! These items are all items I've taken abroad and have proven their worth to me over and over!
Right, I must go and spritz myself!
Take care my Lovelies!
