Believe it or not, Summer has arrived in the UK, and when the seasons change the skincare products I use will sometimes change too. When I was asked to pick out some skincare goodies from the Body Shop I jumped at the chance and ordered myself a few summer-specific treats, and a few everyday essentials.

So here are the skincare products I chose from the Body Shop...

Tea Tree 3 in 1 Wash, Scrub, and Mask £8.50 - This multipurpose skincare product can be used as a wash, a scrub, and a facemask. Whilst I've only used it as a wash and scrub so far, it's already a product I've fallen in love with. The exfoliating beads leave my skin feeling super smooth and my face always feels thoroughly clean after using this 3 in 1 wash.

Pink Grapefruit Hand Cream £5.00 - I love anything grapefruit scented, but to me, grapefruit is a summery smell so I try to reserve anything like this for the warmer months. This cream smells unreal and isn't as oily as similar hand creams which is great as it sinks straight into my skin.

Vitamin E Moisture Sleeping Mask £11.00 - This sleeping mask claims to ''restore and protect the skins optimum moisture level'' and so far its been doing a pretty good job. I whack the mask on a few times a week and I do feel that my skin is rejuvenated overnight. Occasionally my skin can get a little greasy if I overuse this product, so I just reduce my use if that happens.

Vitamin C Glow-Protect Lotion with SPF 30 £15.00 - Glow protect you say? Count me in! I've been using this lotion most days since it was delivered and I can wholeheartedly say that not only does this product smell amazing, but it also leaves my skin feeling smooth, protected, and glowing! Throughout the summer months, I always try to use an SPF moisturiser as I want to protect my skin but I don't want to lather my face in suncream as it usually clogs my pores, so this is perfect.

Tea Tree Targeted Gel £7.50 - I don't get breakouts a lot but when I do it's usually in the form of one giant spot, so I always have some form of spot zapping product to hand. It's hard to judge this product as I've only tried it a few times but so far I don't think it's the best spot targeting product I've ever used. That being said it does do what it promises so had I not used other products in the past I'd probably be super happy with it.

Shea Body Butter £6.00 - I haven't had a chance to use this yet as I've got about 400 other body lotions on the go, however, I'm sure it will come in handy after a couple of long days in the summer sun!

So those were the skincare products I picked up to see me through the summer months!
