The lovely Marks & Spencer recently sent me an edit of their best Summer beauty essentials and I couldn’t wait to start trialling the products, especially as I spotted some of my favourite brands in their including Nuxe and Rituals! I was really intrigued to try the products from Bliss and I’d also heard such great things about James Read self tan so safe to say I was excited to get stuck in with my summer beauty essentials, here’s my thoughts!…

*Rituals Discover Hammam Set – £15: I was super excited to try this set out as I’ve always been a huge fan of Rituals – their products always smell divine and this set did not disappoint. I was really shocked to see that the set was only £15 as all three products were full sized, this set would make such a lovely gift too! My favourite product of the three was the body scrub as it left my skin feeling super smooth and really to apply a fresh layer of tan. I adore these products and have set them up in my bathroom cupboard for daily use, I may have to repurchase this set again to stock up!

*Bliss Arm Candy Arm & Leg Bundle Gift Set – £32: I have to say I was a little apprehensive about this duo when I first had a read of the products, the products are ‘designed to firm, tone and nourish skin’ – I struggle to buy into products that claim to create a slimming elusion but I have to say I’ve really loved using these products. I love the arm-perfecting cream and although I wouldn’t say they look firmer as such I’ve noticed an improvement in my skins appearance.

*James Read Sleep Mask Tan – £25: I was really excited to try this as I’ve seen so much hype on my social media channels for quite some time now about James Read products. This was the sleep mask tan – I always get scared using self tans for the face as I just envision waking up with a tan line along my jawline! This one was really natural and didn’t smell at all, it’s a clear gel so it doesn’t stain your clothing or bedding (yippee!). I really enjoyed using this mask and can see myself getting a lot of use out of it this Summer, especially to keep my tan topped up after Thailand!

*Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil – £10: This shower oil is so dreamy! It leaves your skin feeling cleansed with a satin finish worthy of any Summer day. It has a golden shimmer that leaves your skin glowing but it’s really subtle in case you aren’t big of fake tanning. A really lovely natural product ideal for any holiday! I also think the price point is great too as it’s a 200ml bottle which will last for ages!
