My Summer 2016 Essentials

My Summer Essentials

My Summer Essentials

With the weather warming up, and Summer just around the corner, I have compiled this guide of beauty products to get your body ready for Summer!

Eco Sonya Foaming Body Wash $21.95 – buy
This foaming body wash is lemongrass and pink grapefruit scented, it is a great fruity and zesty body wash for summer days. If I forget to moisturise after my shower, my skin is still quite moisturised from the body wash itself.
Sanctuary Spa Green Lemon & Orange Blossom Body Scrub $14.99 – buy
Another zesty one but this has small granules for light body exfoliation – great for getting your body beach ready. The granules are not too big or rough making it really gentle for exfoliating the body and the scent is very fresh and calming!
Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser $9.99 – available at major supermarkets and pharmacies
I get lazy during the Summer to stand in the heat and moisturise. It’s just simply too hot and stuffy to be spending 10-15 minutes moisturising. Well, Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser to the rescue! It sprays on and covers your body in seconds, is absorbed quickly allowing you to get dressed almost immediately.
1000 Hour Softsole Express (not pictured) $8.99 – buy
A convenient and quick at home treatment to remove rough skin on your feet. It doesn’t require any scrubbing – you simply rinse your feet, apply the booties and soak for 90 minutes before washing it off. It peels the dead skin off your feet completely over 7 days. I was a bit hesitant using this not being sure whether it would work or not but it does work!
Beyonce Heat Kissed 50ml $49 – available at Priceline and Chemist Warehouse
A warm seductive scent with a hint of vanilla, and top notes of lychee and dragon fruit makes this my new favourite PM summer scent. It’s sweet to begin with but then the sandalwood and patchouli comes through and makes it a sultry scent.
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black rollerball $32 – available at Sephora
To me, this is a sensual boozy vanilla scent. It goes so well with my skin chemistry and one I like to apply for those warm Summer evenings.
Natralus Paw Paw ointment $5.50-$14.95 – stockists
After the big fiasco involving Vaseline and Lucas Paw Paw ointment a few years back, I steered clear of basically all paw paw ointments. This one by Natralus is free from petroleum jelly and other petrochemicals, parabens and mineral oils. Its versatility has seen it make a permanent home in my handbag. For uses such as dry, cracked skin to sunburns and itchy skin, this has been a great quick fix for my heat rashes. It comes in a number of sizes – from a small 7g tube to a 75g tube.
Revo lip balms $4.99 – available at Priceline
Packaged like the infamous EOS balms, these Revo balms have been making a home in my handbag, car and desk. They come in a variety of colours matching to their respective scents – my favourite is the watermelon one. They’re moisturising and very easy to apply.
Gliders Non-Slip Sports Band Pony Tail Holders $4.49 – available at Priceline
Waterproof and great for those with an active lifestyle, these hair ties are a lifesaver. They do not budge! Great for when you’re swimming or hiking.

Review: Natralus Paw Paw Pure Spray Gel

Natralus Paw Paw Pure Spray Gel $12.75

Natralus Paw Paw Pure Spray Gel $12.75

Natralus is an Australian brand producing organic skincare, after sun care as well as household care products.

The Natralus Paw Paw Pure Spray Gel combines the soothing ingredients of aloe vera, vitamin e and paw paw to help soothe, rejuvenate and rehydrate irritated skin.

At first, I thought that I’d have no use for it as I rarely get sunburnt and  so there it sat on my shelf until I found a use for it.

I get “heat rashes” often especially during the Summer and when they appear, they itch like crazy.

So when I saw that this spray gel was suitable to use on rashes, I whipped it out and sprayed the heck out of my body. It was SO soothing. The “marks” didn’t go away but the itch did. I’m not sure why “gel” is in the product name as I found that it was more of a fine mist. It was absorbed quickly, not sticky on my skin and left no residue.

Basically, this stuff = godsend. It is ideal for use on skin that is so sensitive or raw that touching it would make it worse.

You can purchase this for $12.75/125ml from selected independent supermarkets, pharmacies, health food stores, petrol and convenience outlets and online: pharmacyonline.com.au, chemistdirect.com.au, naturalhealthorganics.com.au, organicsaustraliaonline.com.au. It also comes in a 200ml pump pack, and 30g and 75g tubes.
