Tropical Escape Beauty (Without Actually Going Anywhere)

Hi TGs!

I don't know about you, but I'd quite like to be here:

You know what I mean: nothing but white sand, palm trees and pineapples. Also bright cotton dresses, jewel-coloured birds (that talk!) and lots of seafood to eat. Ahhhh!

When it's not possible to actually run away to a tropical island, summer's a great time to try a few products that make you feel like you have

I found these

Tropical-themed beauty products

Clockwise: pineapple-flavoured lip-balm from Bomb Cosmetics; a mango bath melt from Lush; Garnier Fructis surf hair texturising paste; Beachcomber frangipani lip balm, and Pure Coconut glossing spray, also for hair. 

If you want that island fantasy feeling, just look for scents inspired by island fruits and flowers and you'll soon be in an endless summer. 

Don't have the pocket money for new beauty goodies? Don't sweat it. Coconut oil is cheap as chips and looks and smells lovely rubbed into dry, scaly limbs. Tuck a frangipani behind one ear, or weave a few into your wavy locks. If you want 'just had a swim' surf-tousled hair, get a clean spray bottle and mix up some water, salt, hair conditioner, then work it through your mane.

Aloha, girls!

XOXO Claire
