Summer Favourites Sydney Style

My latest favourites are a summer fun bag compiled for you direct from Sydney. I have been holidaying here for the past few weeks and it only took me about 2 seconds to get in the swing of being back in the world of heat and humidity.

So here are the products I have been reaching for, pretty much on a daily basis due to packing restrictions.


La Roche Posay Anthelios XL 50+ Sunscreen - I picked this up on my Paris trip last month. It is described as being 'extreme fluid for sensitive skin' and I have been wearing it on my face and chest, over my daily moisturiser every day since I arrived. It is a little creamier than the last sunscreen I was using, but it does what it states and is easy to rub in.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturiser - I normally use the Ultra Facial Moisturising Cream which is heavier and more suitable for the northern hemisphere but I swapped to this lighter version for my trip. It is a good basic, fragrance-free option and I had a teeny tiny bottle which is great for travelling. 


Bourjois Bronzing Primer - I love this for providing a little bronzed pick-me-up for under my normal makeup. The colour is fairly subtle, enough to give you a lovely glow without making you look like an orange fake-tan user.

L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash in 101 Lolita - Another Paris purchase, this is a gloss which acts like a stain. Unlike most stains, it is packed with moisture so you get the long lasting benefits without the side effect of dry lips. Lolita is a very natural shade which you can pull off even when wearing your swimmers.  I also love the packaging which is nicer than your average drug store product.


I have just notices that a lot of these products are not yet available in Australia (boo-hiss!). I have linked to the UK sites in my post and I guess we can only wait and hope for Australian releases in 2014.
