Every summer, our priorities change direction. We need extra suncare, extra smooth legs and were lovers of freshness. These are my absolute summer essentials.
I’m not sure about you, but one thing that is a definite must have during summer is smooth legs. I surely don’t want to be rocking extra prickleys! I feel like when it comes to Razors, we can be quite picky. I’ve been trialling out quite a few shavers for my legs and I think I’ve found my favourite. Gillette Venus Swirl* is not like your normal razor. Do you see that interesting silver ball-bubble-contraption-thing!? Basically what that does, is allows the razor to move in pretty much every direction. It picks up literally every hair. I’m usually prone to getting little razor cuts around my ankles or knees, but when I use this razor, that doesn’t happy and I’m left all smooth!
We’re always running around making plans in the summer thanks to some great time off, so of course, we want to be on time. This year I got two Daniel Wellington Watches and my current favourite is their Large Silver Classy St Mawes*. If you use ‘KATINA‘ at the checkout, you’ll receive 15% off until the 15th of Jan. It isn’t a commission code or anything, just a sweet saving for you. I know that there’s heaps of leather watches out there at the moment and plenty of copycat, lookalikes, but having tried quite a few watches, I can definitely say that DW’s are the best quality. The leather is really sturdy and strong, plus they’re also waterproof so you can rock your watch pretty much all summer long.
My absolute favourite body wash of all time is definitely Lush’s The Olive Branch*. I used this body wash non-stop the beginning of this year and it sadly ran out. I was way too lazy to pick it up until recently and again, I can’t stop reaching for it. It’s mostly refreshing with a slight sweetness about it and a little bit goes a long way. I highly, highly, highllyyyyy recommend it.
Last but not least, Jurlique’s Sun Specialist SPF 40 High Protection Cream*. It’s true that many of our makeup products now contain SPF. But honestly, that is no where near enough for the strong UV rays we get here in Australia (and I’m sure the rest of the world too). Straight out of the shower, after moisturiser, I apply some of this protection cream all over my face. It leaves no white cast and sinks in after a couple minutes. I then apply my makeup normally. I’ve had no troubles with this being oily, and we all know that I’m the definition of oily.. So if you are oily, and you’re scared of a sunscreen ruining your makeup, this product will definitely bypass that problem! This sunscreen is also great for the body too.
