Top 10 Summer Beauty Essentials

Rachel Dalton communications will always have a rather fond place in my heart. Not only were they the first PR company to start working with me but they are also enduringly unbelievably helpful and kind. Last week they had an event and put together some essential summer beauty products from the brands they represent. I'm pretty on board with the list - how about you?


Summer Beauty Essentials



1. The MICRO Pedi Nano (€39.95) is a travel-size version of the cult favourite. Cute, dinky and perfect for throwing in your suitcase, I can utterly see why this would be a summer essential. I have the regular version and it turns my poor, battered feet into something presentable - which is good, because, boy do I love sandals!

2. Keeping your teeth looking their best on the go is also majorly important which is where the Violife SlimSonic (€12.95) comes in handy. Adorable and mega-handy at perfect pop-in-your-handbag size. It's a no-brainer.

3. Ziaja, luckily, make a travel range that is perfect for maintaining healthy hair and skin on the go. The 50ml versions only cost €1.99 and a particular fave is the Natural Olive Conditioner which revitalises hair pretty instantaneously.

4. SPF is kinda my jam so Ziaja's Sun Antioxidant Face Cream with Vitamin C SPF50 is a must. At €8.99, it's uber-reasonable for such a high factor and is light on the skin but not on the protection.

5. REN's Moroccan Rose Gold Glow Perfect Dry Oil (€28.00) smells A-mazing. Seriously. It also makes you glowy and gorgeous, works for hair and body and gives you a lot of product for your money. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

6. Me and leg-shaving have a notoriously tricky relationship. Giving a klutz a razor is probably not the best plan, but I love me some smooth skin. To help, Total Shaving Solution's Natural Shaving Oil (€5.48 for 10ml and €11,17 for 25ml) has your back. Just remember to hide it from everyone else!

7. Back to teeth, Kin's Whitening Toothpaste (€8.04) is sulphate-free, reduces plaque, smells good and does wonders for brightening your smile.

8. WaterWipes are literally the only wipes I recommend now (though a good cleanse is still necessary, obvs) with the travel pack costing only €0.99 and packaged nice and slim, it's the perfect thing for taking care of children's skin or removing make-up. Multi-tasking is always a good thing while on the run!

9. Viviscal has done wonders for my hair, the Gentle Shampoo and Moisturising Conditioner (€14.95 each) will keep your locks happy, help those with fine or thinning hair and do so naturally.

10. In a similar vein, Perfectil (€12.95), a beauty supplement, does likewise good things both for your skin and nails as well as hair.

Much as make-up and clothes are fun to play with, with travelling, warm weather and more sun, summer is the time to think more about spending time on protecting the canvas that is your body. Wouldn't you agree?

What are your summer beauty essentials?
