Unbeatable Summer Beauty Products

From iconic hair lotions to hydrating new lipsticks, here's five must-have handbag and hand luggage-friendly products to try now

Susanne Kaufmann Suncare Trio

Our female beauty crush, Susanne Kaufmann has expanded her skincare offering with a new Sun Care Trio. Following her eco-friendly, chemical-free mantra, the new collection is made up of the finest natural and botanical ingredients, foraged on the foothills of the Austrian Alps. The trio consists of a luxurious SPF 30 facial sunscreen, which also protects against the signs of ageing; an SPF 30 sun cream and a cooling, aloe vera-enriched gel for post-sun salvation.

Rahua Enchanted Island Salt Spray & Hair Elixir

Rahua takes its name from an ancient Amazonian nut, hailed by women of the Quechua-Shuar tribe as the secret to thick, lustrous hair. Launched by renowned New York stylist and colourist Fabian Lliguin in 1992, its sophisticated line of products remains one of the cleanest and effective on the market, made with organic, 100% plant-derived ingredients.

The Rahua Elixir truly is a game-changing product for keeping hair smooth, tamed and hydrated during summer months, and the new Enchanted Island Salt Spray may just be our favourite new find; a sea salt spray that effortlessly ensures textured, tousled, beach-babe waves. Ingredients include pink sea salt, passion fruit, guayaba and hibiscus for an evocative, tropical scent and a portion of its proceeds will also be donated to the The Pink Flamingos Project. Mermaid hair, with a touch of philanthropy – thank you Rahua.

Travel-Sized Dry Texturizing Spray by Oribe

Oribe’s travel dry texturing spray is a truly one of the finest, handbag and hand luggage-friendly hair products we’ve come across. This  combined dry shampoo and volumising dust delivers long-lasting, voluptuous bounce and effortless, hydrating shine. Each Oribe product is also lightly scented with a signature French perfume, so you will look, and smell, wonderful.

Dolce & Gabbana Miss Sicily Lipstick

These have hardly been out of our hands since they landed in the Luxury London office – a brand new lipstick by Dolce & Gabbana, which offers both the shine and colour of a gloss plus the care of a balm. Sharing the same name as the covetable Miss Sicily bag, this is the first colour and care lipstick from the Italian fashion house, supported by a campaign starring model Vittoria Ceretti. 

Add a quick slick to keep your lips dewy and hydrated, or build up for bolder colour throughout the day. Pair yours with the acclaimed Dolce & Gabbana bronzer for an effortless summer glow.

Cellular Swiss UV Protection Veil

The sun ages skin more than genetics – and with creams, drops and even a lip balm, there’s no excuse for skipping the SPF step in your routine. We're totally enchanted by the daily UV protection provided by this lightweight La Prairie veil, designed to be used over your moisturiser as a final step in your daily skincare regime.
