This year’s Summer essentials

I’m over-using the word essentials, I’m aware. Let’s just say these are some crazy good products that I’m madly in love with right now – but that would have been too long of a title. Let’s break it down.

*Jo Malone London Star Magnolia feels like white sunshine in a beautiful bottle. I’m in love with the scent and I can’t wait to get my hands on the matching Hair Spray.

*Sisley Phyto-Touch Poudre Éclat Soleil glides on like the beautiful Summer waves it shows. This compact is all you need for a sunkissed look and thanks to the small kabuki brush that comes with it you can easily use it for touch-ups. #handbagstaple

*Tom Ford Fleur de Portofino makes me dream about a Sicilian holiday. It has the aquatic notes from Neroli Portofino but lingers around longer thanks to the floral accords. I’m also in love with this year’s limited edition called Sole di Positano. Can I already go there please?

*La Mer The Revitalizing Serum is what dreams are made of. It’s the most hydrating serum I know, it comes in a big, kick-ass bottle and it makes my skin softer than anything. I don’t know if I ever can live without this one?

*Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist gives me a fresh wakeup call in the morning, I can’t say yet if it does much for my skin but it feels and smells heavenly. What does make a difference is the Thermal Cleansing Balm, this cult product clears up my skin and preps it for some serious skincare.

*Estée Lauder ANR Mask-in-Oil is a gamechanger. Using this oil at night gives me the certainty that I wake up with rested, plump and glowy skin in the morning. This is post-hangover material.

*Tom Ford Sheer Cheek Duo in Paradise Lust makes you look like you’ve just returned from a very relaxing beach holiday. Both blush and highlighter are very pigmented and have the smoothest powder-to-cream formula. *drools* And then I haven’t even discussed the gold and white packaging.

*Tom Ford Soleil Lip Balm in La Piscine is you handbag staple for cocktail nights. It’s a plum coloured lip balm that comes with enough moisture to hydrate your lips while leaving a soft touch of colour to make sure you can rock on ’til sunrise.

*Lola James Harper Fun Fair makes you feel like you’re at a bohemian beach wedding with notes of fig and candy floss. Yes, it’s technically a home fragrance but Santal 33 was too, so.

What are your sunny must-haves for 2017?
