If you’re counting down the days until your hotly anticipated summer holiday then do not despair, as July hails the launch of the latest monthly beauty box from YOU Beauty and trust us when we tell you, this edit is packed with some unmissable sizzling summer essentials.
Here’s what made the Jet Set cut, and why:
High-performance body care products are crucial during the summer months. Which is why the Jet Set edit includes three of the most skin-loving favourites of the moment.
Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection SPF 15 is an essential part of your summer beauty arsenal. After all, this new Ultra Radiance blend won’t just protect your skin and maintain good health; it also leaves you with a super smooth and radiant finish thanks to its improved vitamin-rich formula. It’s oil-free and non-greasy and delivers complete UVA and UVB protection. Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection is everything you need and should expect from your sun tan lotion*.
Aethic L’Air Bien in-flight Face & Hand Cream had us giddy at first use (you see our office conditions very much mimic those of a plane, with thanks to the erratic air con). This gorgeously indulgent organic cream is packed with goodies including goji berry, amaranth oil and other natural ingredients to help restore the skin and retain moisture levels. Developed by experts and tested in-flight, Aethic L’Air Bien in-flight Face & Hand Cream is a remarkable moisturiser that truly nourishes when and where you need it the most.
Carmex Peach & Mango Burst is the latest take on everyone’s favourite lip treatment. A mouth-watering peach and mango combo gives you a beautifully scented and super softening novelty summer lip balm. Whilst the tingle-free formula is a new take on the original and great for anyone who wants the same benefits of the original Carmex, minus the cooling ingredients.
When it comes to fending off the damaging affect that too much sun can have on our complexion, the skincare hotties that make up the Jet Set edit leave the competition quaking.
Resultime Regenerating Collagen Cream is a lovely bit of skincare science that is 100 per cent up to the challenge of summer. This universal gel fights all signs of skin ageing using the patented Vectorised Micro Collagen molecule, alongside 14 other key molecules to put back what nature takes from your skin during the ageing process. The gel smooths, plumps, hydrates, firms and repairs the skin. A multi-use skin hero, use as a serum before your moisturiser, a sleep mask, on holiday to sooth sunburn and replenish the skin, plus it can also help to repair scar tissue.
Alpha-H’™ Liquid Gold is actually Alpha H’s™ best-selling skin resurfacing treatment thanks to its powerful and state of the art low pH delivery system which effectively diminishes wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage. The glycolic based formulation works like an overnight facial to brighten and revitalise tired, ageing skin and radically improve the appearance of the complexion. We are no strangers to multi-tasking but a makeover in our sleep? Now that’s just genius.
White Rabbit Lime & Coconut Cleansing Water is basically a cocktail for your face. It smells like a celebration of summer and it leaves your skin feeling wide-awake and amazing. Use this heavenly cleanser instead of face wipes to remove your make-up and you will notice a difference almost straight away. Plus, the skin-loving ingredients are so gentle that they are suitable for use on all skin types – without irritation.
Away from summer skincare, a fresh fragrance is high on the list of must-buys for most (especially if we’re passing through an airport).
Well, we’ve got one particularly gorgeous fragrance on the edit this month Rosie for Autograph Nuit Parfum is the latest perfume from this High Street favourite and model of the moment’s successful collaboration and it’s pretty special.
Infused with vintage femininity that encapsulates the Rosie for Autograph collection, Nuit Parfum combines precious oils from the French centifolia rose with the feminine, evocative essence of jasmine flowers. Background notes of warming musk create a unique fragrance that’s sensual, timeless and bohemian in spirit – absolutely perfect for holidays and gorgeous all summer long.
Plus, there’s no need to wait until you get to the airport, try it with us (this is the ideal hand luggage spritz) and you can pick up a full size in your nearest M&S.
Summer make-up is a tricky area with many variables, but the Jet Set edit absolutely nails the key looks for summer 2016 thanks to two standout products.
First up, Rimmel Nail Polish in shade Glastonberry, created by Rita Ora, is 60 seconds to sassy thanks to its quick-drying formula that delivers super shine nail colour that lasts for up to ten days and goes on beautifully thanks to the precision maxi brush – flawless results in under a minute, that’s our kind of nail polish!
The second make-up item on the July Jet Set edit is Illamasqua’s Precision Ink Liner in shade Abyss. This game-changer has had the team sporting the perfect flicks for weeks now. Precision Ink creates perfect lines with its long-lasting and water-proof formula. The result is really defined liner that can be mastered on the go and with minimum fuss. Finally, an eyeliner that we can trust!
