5 Things We’re Loving in July
Anyone else feeling bewildered by the events of the past month? Us too. Consider this your mid-month escape from reality: read on to discover the little things we’re loving this month…
1.The Daily Suncream That Won’t Clog Your Skin
Smart girls wear sunscreen. While it’s tempting to grab some tan-time, it’s important to remember to protect your face. A significant amount of visible skin changes associated with aging are caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Not to mention skin cancer. What you need is a kickass suncream. The favourite of many a beauty editor, Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily Moisturiser SPF 50 is lightweight enough to wear every day without giving you spots or greasy skin. This oil-free skin saver with SPF 50 protects skin against both UVA and UVB rays.
2.The Beauty Service That Comes To You
Priv is a mobile and web platform that delivers qualified beauty and wellness professionals to your door, anytime, anywhere. Need a personal trainer to come to you? No problem. Want a last-minute pedi but no time to get into town? Hit them up. In fact, customers can book blow drys, haircuts, massages, spray tans, mani/pedis, make up, male grooming and even personal trainers through the app and website.
All the beauty and wellness professionals are vetted and have profiles on Priv which contain ratings and reviews from previous customers as well as portfolios (especially useful for make up and hair bookings).
3.The Eyeliner That’s Suitable for Sensitive Skin
We rate this luxury beauty brand, loved by MUAs and us mere mortals alike. This month, subscribers will discover a Bellapierre Gel Eyeliner in their box. Made with 100% pure minerals, natural waxes and antioxidants, the product is hypoallergenic and safe for all skin types. The eyeliner glides on super smoothly and is waterproof (you have been warned!). Want to find out how to nail the perfect eyeflick? Our expert guide will be coming soon.
4.The ‘What This Old Thing?’ Dress
Nail the off-the-shoulder trend effortlessly. This feminine, ankle-skimming maxi dress will work hard for a spot in your wardrobe: it makes excellent wedding guest attire as well as being perfect for picnics in the park or a spot of summer sightseeing. Plus the sorbet shades make us smile (and it’s in 50% off in the sale). Enough said.
5.The Project Exploring How Women Feel About Their Bodies After Giving Birth
The Pool has teamed up with photographer Jenny Lewis (known for her One Day Project) to photograph women in their homes six weeks after having a baby. The candid portraits feature women of different ages, nationalities and backgrounds showing what bodies really look like after childbirth. You can read their stories here.
