My Spring/Summer essentials

The weather's been so beautifully hot and sunny recently, and as a result, I've introduced a lot of new products into my routine, 3 of which have become firm favourites and will be getting a lot of use in the coming months:

He Shi dark foaming mousse
Like the original liquid fake tan, this is also tinted but it has the advantage of being a thicker texture, so it's a lot easier to apply. I'm quite lazy when it comes to fake tanning, so I like the fact that you apply this straight onto exfoliated skin, without needing to moisturise first.

It does have a faint biscuity smell, but when you wash it off, you're left with a beautifully even, natural looking tan which can be layered for a deeper colour and lasts for nearly a week before fading.

Herbalife radiant C face quencher
My combination skin can sometimes get dehydrated, and with extracts of apricot, apple, carrot and vitamin C this is great for adding some extra hydration without affecting my makeup.

I use this in the morning to set my make up and to take away that powdery look, plus it comes in a handy 50ml bottle, so it's great for popping into my handbag to help hydrate and refresh my face throughout the day.

Piz Buin ultralight sunspray
I must admit, I don't always use sunscreen when I should, but if I'm going to be spending a lot of time outdoors, then I'll use this instead of a body lotion.

It comes as a fluid spray, so it's a thinner formula, and although it takes a few minutes to get absorbed, there's no stickness or greasy afterfeel on the skin once it does. Most importantly, it comes in a range of spfs and they all have 4 star UVA protection to help keep skin ageing at bay.

Are you more careful about suscreen application? What are your Spring summer must-haves?
