PROLONGING YOUR SUMMER GLOW


It has been a month since I came back from my holidays and I seriously have holiday blues. I caught quite a tan (for me that is since I was extra pale) and I have been working hard to maintain that glow until Winter hits and I go back to my paleness. These are the products that I have been using to prolong my summer glow.

SKINNY TAN BODY GLOW MOISTURISER IN MEDIUM £7.99 (100ml) *

This product was sent to me before I went on my holiday in June and is the product that I have been using to extend that summer glow. The Body Glow is an everyday moisturiser with tanning agents that I apply after I have a bath. It comes out white from the bottle and smells like delicious coconuts. This cream contains smoothing oils, conditioning Aloe Vera and helps firm your skin. The shade medium is perfect for me and does not look orange at all, I do recommend that you wash your hands afterwards as advised. I do find that the coconut scent does not last and you do eventually have that normal tanning scent which then I give myself a quick shower in the morning. I'm always scared to use proper tanning products so this is perfect for me to prolong my glow without going all out. I use this approximately once a week and it is buildable if you want a darker look. I forgot to mention the that I love the pump on this, it makes it so much easier to get the product out without needing to squeeze it out of a tube.

PALMER'S BODY BUTTER £5.49 * 

This has been my favourite moisturiser that I have tried so far, it is ultra thick and ultra moisturising for your skin and the scent smells so nice that I want to stock tubs and tubs of it. This leaves my skin super soft the very next day and I use this to keep my skin hydrated. The scent lasts really well on me although I tend to use a lot of this since I can't help myself. I can't seem to find the exact product in stores but I think the Firming Body Butter is the same. To prolong any tan you need to keep your skin well moisturised since tanning can dry out your skin.

NUXE SHIMMERING DRY OIL £19

Who doesn't want to look like a glowing goddess? I love using oils to hydrate my skin and the Nuxe shimmer oil smells amazing and has precious plant oils and vitamin E to hydrate your skin. This oil can be used all over your body but I just use this one on my skin. The shimmer is very subtle and a little goes a long way.

BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER £24.50

I think everybody's face is a lot paler than the rest of the body since we have SPF in our foundations and skincare. I use the Hoola bronzer to give my complexion a healthy glow plus it works as an eyeshadow too if you feel naked without eye shadow like me. This is a matte finish and looks beautiful on many skin tones. It is easy to build up and can be used to contour your face too.


HOURGLASS AMBIENT RADIANT LIGHT £40

This is an illuminating powder that can be used all over your face for a glowy complexion, it is a golden beige shade with light shimmer and I quite like using this as a blush to really give your cheeks the summer glow. It's so nice on the skin and again warms up your complexion.

COLOURPOP SUPER SHOCK CHEEK HIGHLIGHTER IN WISP + CANDYMAN $8

The Colourpop highlighters are so beautiful, they have that spongy texture and works amazing with a beauty blender to apply. I like using wisp all over the face such as the cheekbones, brow bone and nose bridge. I then use Candyman on my cheekbones only and it gives the most beautiful highlight and glow. These are super affordable and pigmented.

COLOURPOP LIPPIE STIX IN AQUARIUS $5 + ULTRA GLOSSY LIP IN WEHO $6

Aquarius is such a beautiful nude pink colour and because it is a creme finish it is very pigmented and smells like your sipping pineapple mojitos on the beach. This works really well on my pigmented lips and also fades nicely throughout the day. I like using this with Weho an Ultra Glossy Lip which is a creamy beige colour, it has medium coverage and I really enjoy wearing a glossy lip combo since having matte lips can dry out my lips plus it takes glowy to the next level.
That is all for this post, like always I hope you've enjoyed this post don't forget to subscribe.
