The May Beauty Edit

Getting summer ready was my main focus for this month. This meant that I was particularly interested in getting a clear complexion and toning up my body in time for the sunshine.

Here are some of my top fave face, body and hair product discoveries of the month…

The best beauty buys to get ready for summer 2021:

FOR THE FACE:

First up is the SkinCeuticals’s C E Ferulic Serum. It is their award-winning Vitamin C Serum that provides advanced environmental protection for brighter, more radiant skin. I love it because in addition to antioxidant protective benefits, this formula improves signs of aging and photodamage to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while firming and brightening your complexion. What is more, this powerful formula helps neutralize free radicals induced by UVA/UVB, infrared radiation (IRA) and ozone pollution (O3).

FOR THE BODY:

Then we have Eveline Cosmetics which was established in 1983 and is one of the major cosmetic producers in Poland. I was recommended by my fabulous friend and fellow blogger Bella Zofia.

I ordered them from Notio.ch, an online beauty website in Switzerland. I tested out the bestseller called the Eveline Slim Exteme 4D serum and the Eveline Slim Extreme 4D Clinic Super Concentrate Anti Cellulite Cooling Formula.

The super concentrate contains Glycolic acid evens and smoothes the structure of the epidermis, and ConturShock Treatment supports the process of burning subcutaneous fat, giving an effect similar to lymphatic drainage. It also contains a combination of guarana and caffeine. Whilst the Slim Extreme 4D Serum promises to eliminate the local excess of fatty tissue. It has a heating effect which is slightly unpleasant but makes me aware of my problem areas and in turn I am making more of a conscious effort to train and tone up those areas. In terms of application it’s fairly straightforward: Once a day in the morning massage with circular movements into the problematic areas of the body.

FOR THE HAIR

I have been getting lots of nice compliments on my hair recently and wanted to share my haircare update. I have been using the Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo. It smells great and is infused with antioxidant-rich argan oil, keratin proteins, and fatty acids. It is a super moisturizing shampoo helps strengthen broken strands and dead ends. I also recently started using Garnier’s BANANA AND SHEA INTENSIVE HAIR TREATMENT Ultimate Blends Hair Food. It smells so delicious that it even has a label warning you not to eat it! If you are a fan of tropical fruits and pina colada’s this is a must. It deeply hydrates and repairs, leaving dry hair soft and healthy hair. Enriched with banana, shea butter and coconut oil, the 98% natural origin formula is free of parabens, silicones and artificial colourants. They also have a Papaya range which I really like as well. Definitely recommend trying them. I’ve been using the mask twice a week and sometimes I combine it with pure coconut oil to really hydrate my hair. Another trick I’ve been testing out since I saw the huge viral trend on TikTok is applying castor oil to the roots and leaving it over night. It’s a bit of pain to get out but I definitely see an improvement in the texture of my tresses.
