The new beauty products to get me through the summer holidays

The new beauty products to get me through the summer holidays

Stylist and fashion journalist Erica Davies reveals the products that help her stay looking cool when the heat is on in summer


Six weeks. Six LONG weeks of school holidays are looming large. Stress levels (us), boredom levels (the kids) reign supreme, all of which can take its toll on your skin, hair and – let’s not brush the issue under the carpet – your beauty regime.

So this month I have been testing a few new products designed to re-hydrate, re-energise and generally to take the work right out of looking good. All of which will hopefully leave you with a bit more energy for those daily trips to the park. Come on, we can do this!

SKIN AND TEETH

Oral-B 3D White Luxe Pearl Shine Toothpaste
Olay Total Effects Night Firming Moisturiser
Olay Total Effects Pore Minimiser

Oh hello favourite new toothpaste! This brand new product from Oral-B is a godsend for tea drinkers (and OK, red wine drinkers) like me. In seven days it claims to be able to remove up to 90% of surface stains and keep teeth looking white. And to be honest, I could see a difference after the first use. It left my mouth feeling fresh and clean. Impressive.

Another new skin must-have is the Total Effects night cream which was, frankly, a miracle worker during the time I trialled it. It goes on like a mask, so don’t be afraid to slather it on, and contains a mix of ultra moisturisers to get to work while you get some sleep. I woke up in the morning feeling moisturised and lines around my eyes were noticeably reduced.

I used it in conjunction with the Total Effects Pore Perfector, which is meant to reduce those annoying large pores (I get them on my cheeks). Used day and at night (before the night cream), my skin looked glowing and fresh – even if I really wasn’t feeling it!

HAIR

Pantene Pro-V Perfect Hydration UV Protective Spray

Left to its own devices (which it always is when I’m off with the kids as I don’t have time to blow dry it), my hair tends to adopt ALL THE FRIZZ in the world. So I need help when it’s damp to counteract that dry, frizzy look.

A couple of spritzes of Pantene’s Pro-V Perfect Hydration UV Protective Spray all over, a brush through and then followed with my usual serum worked a treat. It’s designed to be a leave-in treatment that instantly hydrates, as well as helping to protect against sun damage. I also used it on the kids when they refused to keep their hats on playing outside.

Id love to try these products, I have had a couple of life changing years and this has left me battling with depression. I use product like these either as something to distract myself but sometimes just putting makeup on or something that smell nice can lift my mood in away that others would struggle to understand. It would be great to try these please.
