Since a relaxing island getaway isn't on our horizons right now, this must-have is making sure we are always beautifully bronzed. The Little Honey Bronzing kit is easy to use and quick drying leaving you with a flawless summertime glow. Enriched with Aloe Vera and Pro-Vitamin B5, the nourishing Little Honey formula creates a natural and healthy looking tan perfect for a night out or a little confidence booster. This cruelty-free, New Zealand made product is definitely our new go-to for that year-round glow!
From salty up do's to sun-bleached locks, summertime has definitely done a fair bit of damage to our hair. And while we don't want to part with the beach babe look, it was finally time to accept that our hair needed some TRESemmé TLC. Our current hair care obsession is the TRESemmé Botanique collection which is free from parabens and dyes - hello naturally beautiful hair. This botanical blend of coconut milk and aloe vera has given our dull, dry locks a boost of moisture and repaired those unruly damaged ends. It's officially true - aloe vera and coconut are the beauty saviours!
