So today while the majority of the country made the most of the sunshine lounging in the garden and having the first BBQ's of the year, I was stuck inside in my pj's writing an English essay on identity constructs. Jealous? Didn't think so...but anyway to cheer me up a bit and join in with the sun I thought I'd do a summery themed post about the three amazing products I picked up from Savers last week to give me a beach body on a budget...
Radox 'Island Indulgence' Shower Smoothie £1
I never thought I would get so excited over a shower gel, but this Radox Shower Smoothie has proved me very wrong. It contains real fruit like passion fruit, papaya and aronia berries which makes it smell incredible and also real fruit seeds which act as a gentle exfoliant. It lathers up so thick and creamily too that it's a pleasure to use and at a meagre pound you cannot go wrong! My summery smelling skin has arrived.
Soap and Glory Slim Wear Firming Balm £2.99
There's no point in your skin smelling good if you're not going to wack out those shorts and brave the bare legs, so I always use a firming lotion on my thighs so I can feel extra confident when doing this. The Soap and Glory firming lotions are really expensive in Boots so I was incredibly happy when I saw this for only £2.99 on the shelves of Savers. The smell is a bit odd and minty, but it claims to be a 'puff draining peptide balms that firms, contours, smooths and reduces the appearance of cellulite' so as long as this banishes any orange peel skin in time for my bikini wearing holiday week I couldn't care less about the scent!
St. Moriz Medium Self Tanning Mouse £2.99
A firm favourite of mine for over a year now and a staple when it comes to summer skin (sadly we live in the UK and cannot not rely upon the sun to give us a natural tan during those summer months!). This mouse is so easy to use when applied with a mitt and washed off in the morning. It also gives you a gorgeous natural olive toned tan that lasts for just under a week and has actually been fading evening lately too. St. Tropez who?
What products do you use to get summer skin?
As the start of this post suggests I'm still living in end of uni exam time hell, but I did my final performance exam yesterday and went out for a nice Wagamama's afterwards so I'm still having fun and really feel like I'm on the home stretch now. It's also only three weeks till I go to Spain with my friends so it's a good job I completed day 10 of the 30 day shred today, moving up to level 2 tomorrow which is a first!
I hope you've all had a lovely day!
