Summer Beauty - Make-up

What's in my summer make-up bag?

I don't wear a lot of make-up anyway and I like to create "le no make-up" look. Some of the products mentioned below are staples in my make-up inventory and are continuously re-purchased.

Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation in Candy Cane (It contains no bismuth oxychloride)
Lily Lolo Mineral Blusher in Rosebud
Becca eye colour powder demi matt - Chantilly
Becca eye colour powder shimmer - Lame
Herbfarmacy Melissa Lip Nurse

Wish List
Beauty Without Cruelty Ultimate Conditioning mascara
Hurraw Black Cherry Tinted Lip Balm
Lily Lolo Mineral Eyeshadow in any of their neutral shades

Is your make-up routine complicated? Do you have a make-up collection? Or are you like me and use up something before replacing or do you have several things on the go at once? Have you tried any of the products mentioned or that are on my wish list? Would love to know your thoughts.

Summer Beauty - Body Care

As the Summer Beauty Series continues this next instalment is about my bath and body care products. I tend to use bath oils or salts and lighter fragrances during the summer months.

Bath Time - Unfortunately we don't have a shower which would have been ideal for the recent heat wave. A few of my favourite products are:

Neal's Yard Remedies Lavender Bath Salts
Neom Bath & Shower oils 
Neal's Yard Remedies Baby Soap
Spiezia Organic Lavender and Chamomile soap

Bloom Remedies Calendula and Chamomile baby eczema balm
Bloom Remedies Peppermint & Lemongrass organic foot balm

I am also using these body lotions by Neal's Yard Remedies in travel size
Neal's Yard English Lavender body lotion
Neal's Yard Rose & Geranium body lotion

I tend to use the Bloom Remedies eczema balm only on the areas that need it and a regular body lotion everywhere else. I don't always use a separate hand cream, I normally use a body lotion decanted into a travel bottle to keep by the bed or in my bag. I don't exfoliate my skin, instead I use a body brush daily before moisturising.

Wish list
Bamford Rose Bath Oil
Bamford Green Weekender
Bamford Rose Duo

I have never tried Bamford Organics before and these are some of the things I would like to try soon.

Summer Beauty - Skincare

I thought I would share with you my current summer skincare products. I like to keep my routine as simple as possible nowadays and these are my go to products at the moment.

I have extremely sensitive skin and non of these products have caused my skin to react which is why I have stayed loyal to them. 

I like purchasing from Naturisimo as they offer free delivery worldwide. Delivery in the UK is usually within 3-4 days which is great.
