Sensational Summer Skin...

The summer has well and truly arrived this week here in London with temperatures hitting 35 degrees AKA hell on the Central line!

With the warm weather rolling in and itsie bitsie wardrobes springing to life, it's time to get our summer skin prepped and ready! Cue face masks, body oils and lashings of good quality moisturiser ladies. The goal is to emerge looking something a little like this...

So let's start with our 3BM top pick of day and night moisturisers. Drum role please...

Silkly smooth, deeply nourishing and peony perfumed we have L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime perfecting cream (50ml - £32). In my opinion, the ideal day cream as it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy ... I have moderately oily skin and I find this strikes the perfect balance.   

Onto my top two night nourishing treatments. I always opt for an oil based moisturiser to work its magic whilst I sleep. After a full on day at work in central London my skin is crying out for as much moisture as possible. My skin literally drinks it up and I feel there's something quite spoiling about the drip drop pipette regime!! I've tried out a fair few different brands but my current winners are Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (30ml - £36) & erborian's Dongbaek Camellia Essence (30ml - £65). 

Onto product proof points ... Kiehl's concentrate is presented in a gorgeously heavyweight cobalt blue glass bottle - top points for presentation! Made from pure essential oils and perfumed with lavender it helps send you off to sleep too. The only watch out is it does leave your skin quite oily so just make sure you tie your hair back before dozing off or you'll end up with greasy hair/roots!

erborian's is an absolute dream. Mostly made from camellia oil with a touch of flaxseed, grapeseed, coconut and argan for good measure! It smells divine and you literally wake up sleeping beauty style glowing & satin soft.

My partin
g star product is an all over body oil and NARS wins hand down in this category! The Mono├» body glow for the day and the tinted body glow for the evening (both 120ml - £45).

Happy summer beauty bunnies!
