I love going el natural in summer with my beauty regime; however the sizzling season can be very demanding with many pool parties, beach BBQ’s and Sunday sessions. However this DOES NOT MEAN its okay to do you’re hair and make-up like you’re about to hit the clubs. This is why I thought it would be nice to share with Breakfast With Audrey readers my favourite summer beauty products. Over the years I’ve come across some amazing brands that know how to combat heat, salt water, and chlorine. The following products are in my beauty bag which I highly recommend trying, but feel free to post and share yours!
Ella Bache Great 50+ Sportsbloc Active
Ella Bache has just released their new four-hour water resistant SPF 50+ cream sunscreen for the face and body that provides broad spectrum balanced UVA and UVB protection. It also caters for those who are active in and out of the water. This powerful sunscreen also contains Super-fruit anti-oxidants to protect cells; Lanolin to prevent moisture loss; Macadamia nut oil for a soft, velvety finish and organic UV absorbers. It’s like a tropical paradise on your skin! RRP: 130ml – $44.00 and 375ml – $69.00. To purchase online go to www.ellabache.com.au
Invisible Zinc Tinted Daywear
A winner of many beauty awards, Invisible Zinc’s Tinted Daywear is a complete 3-in-1 moisturiser, zinc sunscreen and sheer foundation for everyday high UV protection. Like any other girl I am quite particular about my foundation, however Tinted Daywear gives full coverage without the ‘cake face’ look. It’s available in two shades – Tinted Daywear Light for light/medium skin tone and Tinted Daywear for medium/tan skin. Tinted Daywear 50g tube RRP $32.00.
BECCA Beach Tint
I came across BECCA Beach Tint a year ago and will never look back. This is a beautifully blendable crème stain for cheeks and lips that suits all skin types. It’s water-resistant so will last throughout the day. It’s non-greasy yet doesn’t dry out either. Each of the eight shades so are deliciously scented you’ll want to eat it. It can be purchased at David Jones and other leading retail stores for RRP $54.00.
Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara
This ultra volume-boosting mascara works in a single coat. I particularly like this mascara because the brush has an S-shaped curve that makes it easy to apply. It accentuates lashes without clumping or flaking and the creamy application is waterproof so you won’t look like you’re from the Addams Family. It can be purchased at leading retail stores including Myer and David Jones for RRP $52.00
O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum
My hair tends to go CRAY after a swim in the salt-water – which is why I cannot live without O&M’s Frizzy Logic Shine Serum. It’s a unique blend of native Australian ingredients including cold-pressed certified organic Argan Oil and Macadamia Oil. It tames unruly hair by calming and smoothing. It also protects hair from humidity, and gives it a silky shine. It contains no parabens, is sulfate free, and more importantly – the scent is mesmerizing. RRP $31.95 (To find your nearest retailer go to originalmineral.com/salon-locator/)
