Are you sick of my beachy posts yet? If so, what is wrong with you?! It's the last day of August, so I'm trying to squeeze out the last few juicy drops of summer... sure, it's raining, but I'm jetting off to the sun in a couple of weeks, so this beauty survival kit from ASOS* will definitely come in handy.
In this cute make up bag (which I desperately needed, as my previous one from Monki is looking very tatty) I got some lovely things to help you stay looking pretty on the beach. I am starting to look after my appearance a bit more, especially where the sun is concerned, so I was really happy to be sent these things to review!
• Nip + Fab Body Shimmer Leg Fix - a moisturiser with a subtle golden shimmer. I personally probably wouldn't use this on the actual beach, as I'd be slathered in suncream, but it's really nice to put on for an evening out. Also, it smells INCREDIBLE.
• Korres Hair Sun Protection - something I should have bought a long time ago. We all think about putting suncream on when we're enjoying a summer's day, but what about our hair? I really wish I'd got some protective spray towards the beginning of the summer, as my hair is looking a bit frazzled now, but at least I can stop any further damage with this. In fact, this is probably the kind of thing our hair could benefit from all year round.
• Rimmel Salon Pro Nail Polish 283 Angel Wing - firstly, I don't recommend you painting your nails on a sandy beach... it won't end well. This pretty pink colour is so easy to wear and makes you feel all girly! Even if you're wearing no other make up at all, having your toes and fingernails painted can make you feel a lot less scruffy on the beach. This colour also has a subtle shimmer in it, which looks magical in the sunshine.
• Rimmel Good to Glow Highlighter - I have been wearing this everyday since I received it, and people have said I look glowing, and really healthy! I've got it in shade 001 which is quite a cool colour, but by the looks of things they come in all kinds of shades to suit your skin. I blend a little along my cheekbones and on my brow bone for a natural glow.
• Lolly Brush - um, well, who doesn't want a lollypop-shaped hair brush when they're on the beach?! It's a really good idea to take a brush to the beach - the salty sea breeze can wreck your hair so it's good to try and keep the tangles to a minimum! The fact that it has a cover means you won't get loads of sand and gunk stuck in it too!
