Summer’s in full swing, and whether you’re staying put in the UK or venturing to more distant lands for your summer vacay, we’ve got 5 hero beauty products that will be a welcome addition to your wash bag:
1. Evolve Climate Veil Factor 20 (£28) We are more than a little bit obsessed with Evolve’s Climate Veil with factor 20. It’s lightweight, goes on like a dream and leaves your skin with a dewy, luminous glow. 99.6% natural, it contains natural anti-ageing ingredients such as polyphenol-rich Lingonberry stem cells and hyaluronic acid, with reef safe, non-nano mineral-based zinc oxide to deliver a lightweight broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. Perfect for everyday use, under or instead of makeup.
2. Organii 100% Mineral Sun Protection (£11.95 – £23.95) We’ve searched the land for the best natural suncreams, and we think this one is pretty spectacular. It contains natural minerals of non-nano zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to provide full spectrum UV protection. Suitable for all skintypes, including sensitive and fair skin, and available in a number of different SPFs.
3. Evolve Sunless Glow Body Lotion (£18) Looking for a natural looking fake tan that’s also natural? Evolve’s Sunless Glow body lotion builds a gradual tan over a number of applications, as well as moisturising and smoothing skin with organic papaya, aloe vera and shea. 99% natural and 86% organic. We love to use with Evolve’s Satin Body Gloss (£22) for a bit of extra shimmer.
We all know that sunshine, sea and swimming pools is the perfect storm for dry, brittle and frizzy hair. Enter, Earth Science’s Olive & Avocado Deep Conditioning Hair Masque. This intense deep conditioner is infused with silk protein to soften, thicken and repair hair. Just leave for a few minutes or for a more intensive treatment, 10 minutes – and say hello to smooth, glossy, healthy looking hair.
Packed with natural goodness, this tiny travel companion washes your hair, body and even your clothes. As well as being free from parabens, palm oil, and SLS, it’s also plastic free – so you can feel smug about leaving those little plastic hotel bottles unopened at the end of your stay. It’s naturally antiseptic and anti-fungal, so useful for naturally warding off insects.
