Travel-Sized Beauty Favourites for Your Next Holiday
Times are tough right now. As well as the ongoing societal problem of systematic and systemic racism against black people across the world, the Coronavirus pandemic continues. With many of us still abiding by lockdown restrictions, travelling has been severely disrupted.  You may have had a holiday planned that’s been cancelled or postponed. You might have planned to take a quick trip away to escape the hustle and bustle of life. You probably planned a staycation to get away from your hometown for a short while. Regardless of your travel plans, it’s annoying to have to put things on hold.

Face SPF Products You Need to Try Right Now
It’s hot. There I said it. It really crept up on us. We were given rain and storms before a heatwave no one saw coming. I’m the first to burn too. I’ll step outside and within 10 minutes, I’m a rosy hue. This list is as much for me as it is you and I’m excited about it, let me tell you.

Summer Lovin’
You've binge-watched Normal People, developed a mild case of repetitive strain injury from swiping left on boys who are 'just looking for a quarantine buddy ;)' and Love Island 2020 (much like my own love life) is cancelled.   If you're a hopeless romantic like myself and need your fix of summer lovin' in the absence of skin-tight white jeans peacocking around a firepit (I mock, but I've never missed an episode), then pick up a love story.

The Benefits of Meditation On Your Mental Health
Life is still a little on the crazy side right now… I mean, if you’d have asked me back in January what I thought I’d achieve this year, you can bet your bottom dollar I wouldn’t have said building a loungewear collection and not leaving my house for months, other than to go food shopping and walk the dog. No socialising… no holidays… not going into work…  Life has literally been flipped upside down for a lot of people and now more than ever, it’s important to look after our mental health and wellbeing. Spending most of your time alone, or with the same few people in your household can also be hard, especially if you’re a natural social butterfly.

Face SPF Products You Need to Try Right Now

Its hot. There I said it. It really crept up on us. We were given rain and storms before a heatwave no one saw coming. Im the first to burn too. I’ll step outside and within 10 minutes, Im a rosy hue. This list is as much for me as it is you and Im excited about it, let me tell you. 

Dermalogica SPF 30 

Dermalogica has just released its Invisible Physical Defense SPF cream. Its a thick but smooth texture, which does leave that white residue on your skin for 10 or so minutes. It works wonders, completely preventing any burning or redness! I tried it on my shoulders and arms too, which worked almost just as well, but just dried far quicker (rather than being absorbed). 9/10 on the face, and well, thats what were here for really. 

Alpha H SPF 50+ 

Their Daily Essential Moisturiser protects against both UVA and UVB rays, is lightweight and doesnt leave white cast on your skin. It also has the Pro-Vitamin B5, meaning added hydration to skin that absorbs quickly in the sun. Alpha H also states that its anti-ageing, so a winwin in my book. 

Neutrogena SPF 25 

When I asked my Instagram audience for their recommendations, the Neutrogena Hydro Boost City Sheild was one suggestion I had time and time again. At an SPF of 25, its a little less defensive than the others on our list, but nevertheless, its oil-free, water-based and at £12.99, its a must-try. 

Clinique SPF 40 

The Clinique Super Defense is a range of moisturisers and creams. From a multi correcting cream at SPF 25 and daily moisturiser at SPF 20 (with a separate night cream) to a multi correcting gel at SPF 40, this range has something for everyone. It claims to be sweat resistant also, making it one to test for those of us who choose to be active in the sun, rather than the sunbathers.
