Favourites | Summer Saviors

I promise one of these days I will stop talking about my holiday but for now this post is about my Summer Saviors that I used religiously on holiday. This is sort of July favourites, but focused on my two weeks abroad.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Mat
I am have normal/combination skin and I find that this moisturiser really helps to combat my overly shiny t-zone and on nights out in Spain I was using this even though I wasn't wearing foundation with it. It just provides a nice matte base and if I wasn't wearing this in the evenings on holiday my face looked ridiculously shiny in photos!

V05 Miracle Concentrate
I have written a rave review about this product a couple of days ago which you can read HERE. I absolutely adore this product, I think it's such a bargain!

Caudalie Grape Water
I'm not too sure how much use I will get out of this now I'm home as I'm pretty sure you're paying for water in a can. But this was gorgeous on holiday, when you're feeling too hot a quick spritz of this was lovely. I'm not sure if it has any real skin care benefits, if anyone knows please let me know!

Soltan Once Face Sun Cream
Obviously sun cream is a necessity but this one in particular was great as it has a hint of self tan in it. I wear really high factor on my face and exfoliate regularly, so it doesn't tan as fast as my body. This gave a really natural hint of colour which just helped to match up my face and body.

Soltan Head & Hair Sun Cream
I hadn't heard of hair sun cream before, I saw this in Boots and bought it on a bit of a whim. There isn't a lot to say about this really. But I do think that my hair seems a lot less damaged now I'm back from holiday than it usually does, so I think this really helped and it's really affordable.

I know this is a bit of a late favourites but these are all products I wanted to share with you so I'm putting it up now anyway! Hope you've all had a good week and happy Friday!



  1. love that face sun cream! i've taken to using it everyday now, even though it's not sunny in ireland at ALL anymore! the smell of it is so great!! :)

  2. I've been using the soltan once spf 30 on my face this summer too, but I haven't seen this one with gradual tan it! I will deffo be buying that soon before summer is over.
