I’m not sayin’ I’m a gold digger…

{Diggin’ these golden treasures}

This season has seen an abundance of gold packaging and I’m diggin’ it. Honey, oils, balms and sparkles, surely it’s everything that summer represents? From head to to these products sure do know how to make a gal feel special…

{Vichy Nutriextra Extraordinary Oil – $29.50}

Just so blissful, this oil coats my skin in a delectable, baked-good scent that makes me feel like perhaps I should be wrapped in a paisley printed paper cup. Okay I digress. The Vichy Nutriextra Extraordinary Oil is loaded with nine precious oils and nourishes the hair, face and body from within. The result? A glow that radiates.

{Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine – $39.99}

Something to note with this product. When it says two to three (tiny) drops you should really abide by it. “But it’s so light,” I said. “Surely it can’t be that strong,” I said. Yeah, this product is so concentrated that even one, tiny pipette drop will give you a head full of intense shine. Believe! On that note, this product will actually last me until the end of my days…

Did I mention that the heavy glass packaging is so beautiful you’ll want to store it on your dresser?

{Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil – $22 and Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm – $10}

I know I always go on about Jennifer Lopez and how badly I love her “Waiting for Tonight” skin but why not?! This really give that effect the most because of it’s light tint of bronze. The dry oil texture means no mess and covering your clothes in what can only be described as the ‘fake-tan-tango’. Perfect for romantic summer evenings it’ll make you feel oh so beautiful.

Technically there’s no need for sparkles in your night time routine but I keep this little pot of honey at my bedside. I love the feeling of having soft honey tasting lips so I thougth ‘hey, why not,’ —  I can’t go to bed without hand cream and lip balm, both of which are actually The Body Shop!

{YSL La Laque Couture in Corail Colisee – $27}

No colour screams summer like coral does. Don’t get me wrong I love the trendy shades but when in doubt, choose coral. Still the number one in nail polish formula (CND Vinylux is coming up close behind) this shade is a bright, orange/pink coral to pick you up when you need it.

What are some of your summer favourites right now? Let me know below!

    Oooh I didn’t know about Vichy! I will have a look/smell for sure. I’ve been all Nuxe this summer mixed in with a little Caudalie. What was life like before these little wonders, I can’t remember! 🙂
    Does the Vichy fragrance last?

      I love Nuxe and Caudalie but haven’t tried too much from them yet. Beautiful brands though! The Vichy fragrance is honestly so lovely and yes, it lasts! I wouldn’t say a full day but quite a few hours 🙂
