Rimmel London Kind and free tinted balm.
Summer is an amazing time of year to change up your beauty routine and try new things. In this  post I am  sharing new and exciting must try trends and the products we need to achieve them, all available from the drugstore! I can’t wait to share summers hottest beauty trends – budget friendly edition with you 🙂
Starting off with:

Skincare- the hot trends in skincare right now are Niacinamide and Retinol

Niacinamide strengthens the skin barrier while retinol is an anti aging superhero but as we all know skincare can get really expensive.
Olay has two incredible moisturisers available that contain these trendy ingredients. You can reap all the benefits of luxury skincare minus the hefty price tag.

In the AM use the Olay Niacinamide + Peptide24Moisturizer it’s formulated with 99% pure Niacinamide which helps strengthen your skin barrier and visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Formulated with Retinoid complex and vitamin B3 this formula will work overnight to visibly reduce the look of fine lines and even skin tone, leaving you with smoother, brighter skin in the morning.

Hair – for summer 2023 the big trend in hair is natural hydrated locks minus over styling. Air Drying is all the rage. It’s time to show off our natural hair texture.

I personally love this trend because my naturally very wavy and frizzy hair is a bit of a nightmare to style with hot tools in the summer.

Thanks goodness for products like the

NEW Herbal Essences Jojoba Oil Air Dry line!

Finally, I love the Agran Oil + Aloe Repairing Oil Mist – it hydrates for light moisture, smooths, detangles, and helps fight frizz – who doesn’t love that for the summer?

Makeup – Hydrated lips and glossy textured lip products are the big thing right now.

Every time I open my social media apps I see luxury brands showcasing tinted balms.

I did the research and Rimmel London is launching their new Kind and Free Tinted Lip Balms just in time for summer! Launching July 1st you will not want to sleep on these.
