Summer Beauty Essentials with Lloyds Pharmacy

Today is a little Summer beauty and skincare post in association with Lloyds Pharmacy. Although Lloyds are well known for being a general pharmacy and healthcare provider, they also have a huge selection of beauty and skincare products. I was given a budget of £50 to select some Summer Essentials, i didn't realise how much there was to choose from - higher end brands including La Roche-Posay, Korres and VICHY and everyday high street brands like Rimmel and Max Factor. If you're a reader of my blog you'll probably know that i don't wear much make up, i like to keep it simple, fresh and nude - so i picked some neutral, light products, ideal for Summer and the warmer weather.

Here's what i picked;

Eau Thermal Avene - A soothing and cooling mist spray, can be used on irritated/sensitive/sunburned skin, so refreshing and a good all round can of goodness.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Fluid - I've been using this light moisturiser to even out my complexion and smooth the surface of my skin. It's also good for reducing redness on my cheeks and around my nose.

NYC Metro Quartet Eyeshadow - I use light eyeshadows as i've got quite small eyes, so it's nice to have them light and bright during Summer. The nude colours are well pigmented and the different shades make the eyeshadow blendable too.

Korres Jasmine Lip Butter -  I'd heard so much about this lip balm so couldn't wait to try it, it really is so buttery and soft, with a light scent and slightly tinted this neutral shade is so nice to use on the lips to create a juicy finish.

Rimmel Volume Flash Mascara - A product i always go back to, Rimmel mascaras are so good for the price, this one is super black and builds really well, it also washes off easily.

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer - I've always been prone to a few blemishes, so a concealor is an essential of mine, the coverage isn't too heavy and sits on the skin well, i also use it to hide dark under eye circles. The brush applicator is also much easier to apply and blend than a stick concealors i've used in the past.

Korres Mint Tea Shower Gel - This smells so fresh and yummy, it layers the skin with a moisturising barrier so works as both a cleansing shower gel and body moisturiser.

I've been really enjoying these products, i've pictured my face below using the Summer Essentials Products. What are your Summer Beauty Essentials?
