Summer Beauty… Fabulously Handmade

Summer is just around the corner…

Well, isn’t it? Or has it already been? Or is it coming in September?

If you’re anywhere other than the UK you’re probably screaming that Summer has been and gone or you’ve been basking in the sunshine for at least a month by now!

Anywho… whatever the weather, here are my top 5 bloomin’ summery products on beaut-e to get you at your shiny best!

May Chang Body Polish – because you need to buff to avoid looking rough!

Scent Trail’s lovely body polish is perfect for dry areas including heels, elbows and knees or used as a general body exfoliator (a pre-self-tanning MUST!).

It has a marvellous mixture of pretty pink Himalayan salts, Dead Sea Salts (for their reputed therapeutic effect) and Avocado Oil, which is believed to have regenerative and moisturizing properties. It’s also fragranced with essential oil; this scrub will leave your skin soft and gently scented!

Bring on the sunshine! Ooohhh actually, this leads nicely on to the next…

Simply Angelic’s Bring Me Sunshine Ecosoy Aroma Melts – if it’s piddling it down outside, there’s still sunshine in your bathroom!

This delightfully sunny fragrance is cheery and bright, utilising the uplifting effect of Sweet Orange with May Chang (again… May Chang!) and Palmarosa to create a bath of sunshine for you to float in to.

You could also try this splendid Calming Dispersible Organic Bath Oil from LJ Natural (guess what… May Chang again!).
