Active Summer Selection

The sunshine fills me with energy. Rather than spend time in the gym I like to be outdoors, cycling, walking, taking part in water sports and other activities. I also like to embrace the more natural look. Less makeup, clearer skin and a little more freedom. After all in England we try and make the most of the limited sunshine and love to get our legs out with the slightest rise in temperatures.

Regardless of where I am I always carry a bag and within this is my emergency beauty kit. It usually contains a flannel, toothbrush and paste, deodorant, moisturiser, sun cream, soap and a little make up. After a walk or at the end of a hot summer’s workday the beauty kit is my go to. If I do not have time to get home and wash and change the kit comes in handy. Even after those lunch times sunbathing or quick rush to the shops it comes in handy.

This summer I updated my kit with some new essentials including Vie Naturals mini soaps. The set of four soaps are perfect for a mini break or gym session. The soaps are suitable for face and body and come in the most amazing scents; Lavender, Rose, Jasmine, Frangipani. Frangipani is my absolute favourite as it reminds me of India.

The natural handmade soaps is totally organic and paraben free. They lather well and leave your skin moisturised. They are wonderfully scented and can even be used in your bathroom as a scent.

My second essential is mascara. I try and cut down my make up application in the summer to keep my skin as clear as possible. I hate to look sweaty instead of dewy so I avoid excess foundations and creams and opt to blemish sticks and mascara. This summer I tried the Essence mascara range which you can snap up on the high street for under £5. They offer a range of mascara for different requirements. My two favourites are the gym and waterproof mascara ‘Essence You Better Work! Length Definition and Volume and Curl.

The wand is long and defines the lashes, I didn’t find any clumps and the mascara didn’t dry or flake whilst wearing. You can build it up for a more dramatic look or keep it simple with one coat.
