VEET Hair Removal Kit: First up for summer – de-fuzz! The wonderful addition of the sun means that us women have to be extra careful with hair removal. Unsightly ingrown hairs and razor rash are harder to hide in the summer months. Lucky for us, Veet has provided us with a sensitive formula designed especially for our sensitive areas (i.e. the underarms, bikini areas). Formulated with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, this two step process includes an application cream and a finishing cream. Best of all, the Removal Kit is effective on hair as short as 0.3mm. Wowza! With Veet being the worldwide leader in depilatories, you know you’re in safe hands to ensure a clean skin canvas!
SEDUCTION by M.J. Rose: What’s a day at the beach without a good beach read? SEDUCTION by M.J. Rose provides you with a great suspenseful, can’t put it down, beach read. While you’re lying in the sun getting a (healthy, with sunscreen applied) glow, get lost in the world of the supernatural, Victor Hugo, and the other side. With a story that takes place in the past (Victor Hugo’s part) and the present, read how M.J Rose spins a web of supernatural imagination. Victor Hugo has just lost his beloved daughter in a freak drowning accident. In order to regain contact with her, he starts taking part in seances, where he claims to have communicated not only with his daughter, but with Shakespeare, Dante, Jesus … and the Devil himself. Intrigued yet?
Simons Swimwear: If there is one thing that can make you feel good at the beach, it’s a good piece of swimwear. If you remember from Elaine’s recent style feature on Simons Swimwear, you’ll know that they recently launched their 2013 Summer swimwear collection. Most important fact of swimwear shopping – shop for the body you have, not the body you want. Never underestimate the power of a well defined swimsuit.
COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Gloss Balm with SPF 15: Even though you’re relaxing in the sun, doesn’t mean you should neglect your lips! With this COVERGIRL gloss balm, you’ve got a touch of colour in some perfect summer shades will coat your lips with colour will providing protection against the harsh summer rays. Infused with mango,
shea butter, and SPF protection? Perfection.
NEUTROGENA Ultra-Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen: After going to Cuba last year and using this SPF, I’ll never use another. This sunscreen is THAT good. It provides broad spectrum protection against UVA / UVB rays while having an ultra-light and non-shiny finish. Gone is the disgusting sticky feeling that sunscreen can sometimes leave behind. It literally melts into your skin and provides long-lasting sun protection. And if you plan on being outside in the summer, you need SPF protection.
tarte Cosmetics ‘Aqualillies’ Collection: A collection inspired by the US Synchronized Swimming team? You know these lovelies are waterproof! If you’re going to venture out in the summer with makeup, you best be sure that it’s smudge proof, sweat proof, and water proof. The Aqualillies collection by tarte cosmetics provides all of these things. And with so many choices – eyeliners, lipsticks, eyeshadow quads – you can even wear it to the beach!
So those are my 2013 Summer Beach Essentials! What do you think?
