“From festival to forest, beach to barbeque – Protect skin, achieve a gorgeous glow and stay fresh throughout the summer”
Whether you’re about to go on your jolly holidays, a festival or you’re having a “stay-cation” in the UK, you need some of these fabulous products in your handbag to protect your skin and help you maintain that beautiful Summer glow!
NIVEA always seems like the obvious choice for me when it comes to beauty products to take on your holidays as it is a brand that I trust and it’s all so affordable (and it’s all on offer at Boots at the moment, with most of it 50% off!). There are so many types of products to choose from and I usually pick whatever is on offer but after trying some new products, I’ve got a couple of favourites that I’ll keep repurchasing! For the ultimate survival beauty kit, check these products out!
NIVEA SUN Protect and Bronze Face Lotion with SPF 30 (RRP £8.99)
Moisturisers with SPF is important but, even if it’s a high one, is not going to be enough especially when you’re going to be outdoors during the Sun’s strongest time (mid day) so it’s definitely going to be worth putting on a proper sun lotion on your face as well as your moisturiser. There are plenty of lotions that are specifically formulated for face and this one from NIVEA also helps your skin’s natural tanning process, prolonging and maintaining that tan for you!
The most expensive item out of the bunch but so worth it! It’s actually half price at Boots at the moment, so get yourselves there! If you struggle with the heat, you’re going to love it, you’ll have to check it out next time you’re shopping. It is a cooling mist with a continuous spray action and it is SO refreshing on your skin, it actually felt cold when I first tried it out! If you’ve ever used the Evian Spray, this is what this Protect & Refresh spray feels like. It’s non greasy, doesn’t leave a tacky feeling, and it’s also waterproof so you can swimming without worries. I can see myself using this a lot on holiday or on hot days in the UK, purely because it feels so nice and cooling!
KEEPING IT FRESH!
Usually an absolute beauty sin and I try to minimise the use of these but there’s no denying that face wipes has the factor of convenience, especially when you are at a festival, going camping or even want to freshen up on the beach or whilst you’re on a long flight. If you were to use face wipes for those ocassions, these cleansing wipes from NIVEA are a good choice as they are gentle, mild and enriched with Vitamin E and Provitamin B5. They’re also free of perfume, colours and alcohols so your skin won’t dry out from using them. I’ve tried these out and they are not as drying or damaging to my skin as the face wipes I’ve used in the past.
When it comes to deodorants, NIVEA knows their stuff! Dermatologically tested, the active Kaolin ingredient in the Powder Touch deodorants ensures that it dries instantly to avoid that sticky feeling on your skin, leaving your underarms residue free! There are three types of deodorants in the Powder Touch range; roll-on, stick or spray.
Saving the best ’til last! NIVEA have launched a lip butter in a delicious Blueberry Blush scent and the lip butter comes in a pretty purple metal tin. This one smells lovely and mouthwatering, very similar to the purple Chewits! Really yummy! I carry lip balms (yes, plural!) with me every where I go, all year round! No matter what, no matter where, I have lip balm in my bag, or in my pocket. The hydrating formula of NIVEA Blueberry Blush Lip Butter contains rich shea butter and almond oil, and provides a long lasting moisture for hours! With the sun, sea air, aeroplane and air-conditioning, this lip product will provide an instant moisturising and soothing feeling on your lips without feeling heavy or greasy. This lip balm is currently available only from Wilko,
and will be in Sainsbury’s and Morrisons from September onwards – so this one is a bit of an exclusive!
