We’re getting ready to emerge from what’s felt like the longest winter like a phoenix from the flames! The good news is that getting summer ready with these beauty products has never been easier. A bright smile, gorgeous healthy hair and silky smooth tanned skin can all be yours just in time for a summer trip away!
Hydrating Face Oil – By Sarah London
No matter if you have dry, oily or combination skin, the award-winning Hero Face Oil by Sarah London uses the finest organic and nourishing ingredients to keep your skin glowing year-round. The blend features six of the finest cold-pressed and certified organic plant oils including apricot oil and evening primrose oil while also enriched in essential fatty acids to promote flawless skin. Each ingredient is absorbed by the lipid layers of the skin to deliver essential nutrients that naturally deplete as we age. When massaging three to four drops into clean, damp skin I was struck by how thick and nourishing this serum is. Core to the brand is ‘well-ageing’ by promoting a holistic approach towards health and wellness as opposed to physical appearance which we couldn’t love more!
Tabitha James Kraan – Scented Organic Hair Oil
While it’s great to have hydrated skin, we mustn’t forget about our hair. Tabitha James Kraan’s range of award-winning organic hair care has been developed by experts with over 30 years of experience and you can tell this is reflected in the formula. The Scented Organic Hair Oil is suitable for all hair types and can be used as a pre-wash treatment on the scalp as it works harmoniously with the body’s natural oil production or you can apply a few drops to the ends to help smooth, straighten and protect. As I have naturally thick hair, I find hair oil can strip my hair of volume and keep it feeling greasy days after you wash the treatment out but this formula is perfect as it’s light yet nourishing and will have you leaving the house with bouncy, healthy hair ready to take on an activity-filled summer.
ASCEND Skincare from Mellow
The mellow website is one that should be on your radar – being the UK’s first exclusive marketplace to stock an entire range of CBD based quality products delivered straight to your door. After the last year, we should all be looking for some calm in our lives – and if we can get it in our skincare, then even better! Beauty products containing CBD are known to help lessen the signs of ageing, boost nutrients and reduce inflammation, so whether you’re looking for supplements, oils, bodycare or skincare, they’ve literally got it covered. If you’ve noticed your skin has completely changed over the past six months – mainly due to a decrease in Vitamin D and so much more time indoors, it’s the perfect time to rehaul your skincare regime and ASCEND Skincare is a fantastic place to start. They favour plant-based ingredients in their products and use full-spectrum, hemp derived CBD which has been known to help massively with most skincare issues.
We absolutely loved ASCEND’S Phytoretinol + CBD Night Serum Concentrate which boosts collagen, brings puffiness right down, and includes no less than 13 beautifully blended botanicals like sea buckthorn and cannabis sativa extracts to work hard through the night, so you wake up revived with brighter skin. Rebalancing CBD Lustre Face Oil meanwhile is fabulous for very dry skin (especially if you’re suffering after being indoors with aircon so much!), and its lightweight formula ensures it sinks deep without feeling sticky or greasy. Because it works with the skin’s own natural oils, it’s also great for oily skin, rebalancing and nourishing due to its powerful botanicals. Caffeine + CBD Brightening Oil Serum tightens skin as soon as you use it, reduces that tired, puffy skin look and totally revitalises in an instant. Including a blend of coffee, papaya and pomegranate, you’ll notice a different straight away! From £59.99, all available from the mellow website.
Olverum – The Dry Body Oil
Here at Luxe Bible, we’re huge fans of the Olverum range! Their pretty packaging, stunning bottles and exquisite fragrance (crafted with 30 essential botanical oils) make them top of our luxurious body oil list. All of their products are made with natural essential oils and the Ultra Light Super Fine Dry Body Oil still smells absolutely amazing, while being absorbed into clean skin instantly. Enriched with Alaria esculenta extract, this oil is full of powerful antioxidants and is full of amino acids, boosting the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid (our anti wrinkle saviour), which firms skins and promotes elasticity. Using just the tiniest bit of the sublime Dry Body Oil will leave you feeling moisturised and smelling incredible for hours – perfect for getting skin ready for summer.

St Moriz Advanced Pro Formula Express Tan Foaming Water
A gorgeous even tan makes you feel sooooo much better and look thinner! We might’ve had a few sunny days so far this year, but not quite enough to get our glow on ready for summer, so build up the tan with St Moriz’s fabulous Advanced Pro Formulae Express Tan Foaming Water. This brand new product in the St Moriz range is moisturising and streak-free, and the bonus? An incredible fragrance. The colourless liquid froths up when it leaves the bottle and once applied, will start to develop after just one hour. It won’t transfer to your clothes and will continue to develop throughout the day, leaving a long-lasting glow. Apply with a St Moriz tanning mitt. £10.99 for a 200ml bottle available from Boots.
