End of Summer Beauty Guide

End of Summer Beauty Guide














Hopefully you’re all feeling sun kissed and surfed out after summer but no matter how lovely these sun tans and surf hair may look, with these summer traits often come the feeling that you’re body is crying out for a much needed scrub down, nourish and hydrate. Which is why we’ve called in products which are new to the market this season and have endured the hard task of testing them. It has been a tough job, but we powered through and have shared what we thought out about all of these wonderful products!









Primer | £21.00

About
Infused with 6 featherlight oils it helps soften, detangle, de-frizz, tame fly-aways, ease styling and protect against breakage, heat-styling and UV damage.

Review
A great product to use pre or post surf and would also be a good one to pack for any tropical surf adventures you may have over winter. It smells great and really did de-frizz and untangle my hair after surfing.









It’s time to give your skin a lovely much needed pamper after summer, so we tested out some salts, balms and scrubs and here’s what we thought.

Salt Scrub | £26.00

About
From the pure open waters off the UK’s most southerly peninsula, we hand-harvest soft, flaked Cornish Sea Salt crystals to deeply nourish, smooth and hydrate your skin.

Review
This product is sublime and left my skin feeling soft and smooth from head to toe. I love a good salt scrub and with this one being packed full of over 60 essential minerals and vitamins, combine that with sure pure essential oils it’s up there with one of the best ones I’ve tried.

Bath Salts | £18.00

About
Relax into a blend of sage, chamomile and lavender pure essential oils, triggering relaxation for mind and body helping to ease tension and softening your skin.

Review
Again this product contains over 60 essential minerals and vitamins, my skin was left feeling nourished, smooth and hydrated. A simple pleasure with a little going a long way.

Scrubbed and soaked you’re ready to moisturise your summer skin from head to toe! Whether you like a fruity, tropical vibe or want to stick on the sea salt theme then you’ll love the two moisturisers we’ve tested out for you.

Body Butter | £28.00

About
Shea butter and a blend of Cornish seaweeds which contain a high concentration of amino acids and antioxidants are blended with our Living Sea Complex® in this decadent body butter.

Review
This made my skin feel amazing! I felt like I’d been at a spa not only the fresh aromas of the body butter but also because of how it made me feel after using. Amazing after the shower and even after a surf!

Natural Skin Food | £7.00

About
Cado skincare products are super effective at everything from reducing wrinkles, to simply keeping hydrated. The carefully balanced blend of ingredients in their body butter not only moisturises but literally feeds your skin with essential nutrients.

Review
This 100% natural product isn’t just any old moisturiser it’s marketed as skin food and we can totally see why! It really is good enough to eat (although we wouldn’t recommend actually eating it) Packing full of skin loving ingredients we couldn’t get enough of this product. Every one smelled amazing but we loved the Grapefruit one the best!









Steam Clean | £27.00

About
This simple but highly effective cleansing balm is made with Thistle, aromatic Eucalyptus and refreshing Spearmint oils to lift dirt and rejuvenate dull, tired skin. With each Steam Clean, you will also receive one of our 100% organic cotton cloths.

Review
This product smells amazing and really left my skin feeling ridiculously clean. The natural oils hydrated and cleaned at the same time. With combination skin it can be hard to find a product that cleans well but doesn’t dry my skin out, so this product has been a great find.

Calm Clean Cleanser | £27.00

About
This soothing cleansing balm is made from Grapeseed, Carrot Root, Blue Chamomile and Jasmine Sambac oils to nourish your skin, remove dirt and impurities and calm your mood. Suitable for dry and mature skin. With each Calm Clean, you will also receive one of our 100% Organic Cotton Cloths.

Review
Chuck out your old cleansers now and go buy a Skin and Tonic cleanser. You’re skin will thank you for it. Containing on five ingredients this wonderful nourishing cleaner was amazing to use before bed, containing jasmine and blue chamomile it left me feeling clean and calm. It removed make up well and even waterproof mascara with ease.

Coco Mask | £22.00

About
A soothing face mask made with creamy Coconut Milk Powder (rich in lauric acid and vitamins B, C & E), cooling Aloe Vera and Kaolin Clay to gently detoxifies and moisturises dry and dehydrated skin. Suitable for all skin types.

Review
My skin is prone to outbreaks and using new products often leads to a nice spotty rash but the Coco Mask didn’t cause any outbreaks at all and just left with me with lovely soft skin. My skin just felt so clean, plus all the natural and organic products smell incredible. Introducing this to my weekly skin routine is a joy!

Detox Mask | £22.00

About
This detoxifying mask is made from Matcha Green Tea and Green Clay. It’s rich in antioxidants and helps to fight free radicals and unclog pores. We’ve also added Lemon and Basil Essential Oils to help soothe blemishes and rejuvenate dull and tired skin.

Review
Prepare to not stop touching your face because it’s going to feel so soft. I loved this product and have been using it once a week for a few weeks now and I still have so much left. A little goes a long way so don’t let the price tag put you off. You can really feel the mask pulling out all the impurities!
