Summer Loving – Marrakech, Skincare, Wardrobe Hauls and Haircare from Equi

I’ve found a lot to love for Summer and we’re only a month in.

As you may have seen from my Instagram I’ve just returned from a trip to Marrakech. It’s the second time I’ve been to the city and there’s so much to love. The Souks as always were amazing, but what really wowed me this time around was the Jardin Majorelle of the late Yves Saint Laurent.

If you have a chance to go, it’s truly not to be missed!

As you may know I love a bit of menswear and my current obsession is this linen one from Gant!

For my naturally curly hair, I’m loving new brand Equi Botanics.

Their Baobab Sulfate Free Cleanser with almond oil and aloe vera, instantly softens my curls, to naturally lay them down. The peppermint oil is really soothing on my scalp and feels like it is stimulating hair growth, (which can never be a bad thing.)

The Deep Treatment Masque is divine and really hits hair with hydration; whilst the leave in conditioner made my hair so much more manageable and cut out about 3 of my usual pre-styling steps.

All products smell like a luxury spa and I’m so glad to have these in my hair routine. If you have natural, curly or thick hair these are truly a must try!

On the skincare side of things, I’m currently loving the

Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream, which I got in my MakeupbyMario Masterclass goody-bag. Not only is the packaging divine, but a tiny spooly’s worth is enough to keep my face moisturised all day. It’s lightweight but moisturising and leaves skin looking hydrated and healthy.

Two other current obsessions are the Novexpert Vitamin C Booster which has worked wonders in reducing dark spots and marks, making my skin look so much more even than it was a few months ago.

Second up is Revive’s Energizing Hydration Mist. Formulated with bio-renewal this promises younger looking skin and every time I spritz it I genuine feel like I look about 9 years younger. A spritz of this mid-day, refreshes my makeup and makes my skin look supple and balanced. It also smells reassuringly luxe.

Lastly I’ve been shopping up a storm, so felt it was only right that I film a summer Wardrobe Haul. See my summer must haves including swimwear, denim and more, over on the Blush London YouTube.
