Summer Beauty Favourites

I thought i’d show you guys the products that I have been loving all throughout Summer! Britain has actually had a pretty decent summer for once, as soon as a bit of sun comes out, everyone gets excited! For those of you who don’t know, us Brits have the worse weather and we very rarely get a decent Summer.
Firstly, slightly boring but a definite essential.. deodorant. Nobody wants to be rocking the summer look, but smelling like you’ve spent a week in an onion factory. NOT PLEASANT. I picked the Mitchum Advanced Control, on a complete whim. It’s been ages since i’ve used a roll on deodorant, and I thought for a measly  £2, you can’t really go wrong. Considering it was so cheap, I wasn’t expecting great things, but I was pleasantly surprised! I applied this in a morning and smell fresh all day. I used it everyday in Mexico, and even in 35+ degrees, it never let me down.
The Max Factor CC Cream, has been my go to base during the summer months. It’s really light and dewy, with a light-medium coverage. The thing I love about this product is it stays put even in the hot weather, and doesn’t melt off your face.
Mark Hill Holiday Hair Sunset Smoother has been a complete hair saviour in the hot weather! It leaves my hair feeling really soft and well nourished. I specifically apply this to the ends of my hair, as they tend to get really dry in the summer months.
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream is one of best multi-use products around. It came in handy whilst I was on holiday, as I could use it as a moisturiser, lip balm and hand cream. A little of this product really goes a long way!
I can’t rave about Caudalie Beauty Elixir enough! It smells amazing, and is really refreshing on the face. It’s great when spritzed over make up, making your skin appear a lot more radiant.
 YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick | Shade 16 Orange Impertinent is just perfect for summer.The luxurious packaging and fruity scent is just a bonus, to the gorgeous true coral shade. Review found here.
I’ve been loving cream blushes this year, and the Topshop ones are a firm favourite. Especially Flush, which is a pinky/coral colour. The pigmentation of the Topshop cream blushes are great, and the colour can be built up, depending how much colour you would like. 
I hope you guys enjoyed hearing about my essentials! I’d love to hear yours’
