June beauty buys as chosen by Hayley Carr

Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser £14.99

Ever created a tanning disaster and panicked yourself into hibernation? This clever little bottle of foam helps to break down the DHA that creates the tanned look, leaving skin free from streaks and patches. You simply apply the foam onto skin and leave it to get to work for five minutes, before washing it off in the shower. Genius! Buy at ASOS >>

Aveda Purifying Scalp Cleanser £23.50

This innovative ‘pre shampoo cleanser’ helps to instantly balance sebum levels, while salicylic acid exfoliates to leave the scalp invigorated and refreshed. It’s perfect to use if you have a tendency to overload with product, your hair gets greasy easily, or you’ve noticed mild irritation from sun exposure (which can cause dry and flaky skin.) A great summer accompaniment. Buy at John Lewis >>

Nailberry Nail Laquer in ‘Happiness’ £14.50

Summer cocktails look great paired with a delicately coral polish, and this one from Nailberry is just the ticket. Free from nasties and created to encourage and allow the flow of air through the nail surface, this is a great investment if your nails tend to be flaking and damaged. It applies beautifully and the colour result is tropical-licious. Buy at Amazon >>

Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Lavande Fragrance £79.99

Top notes of lavender, bergamot, freesia and peony, heart notes of iris, magnolia, violet and mate, and base notes tonka bean, musk and lavender absolute, this is a beautiful scent that’s perfect for the season. If you’re not into florals then this won’t be for you, but if you are you’re going to want to douse yourself in it. Launching soon at John Lewis >>

If your body is tired from travelling or exhausted from working relentlessly since Christmas, this body scrub will temporarily give you a lift while revealing smooth and beautifully supple skin.

Tangle Teezer Markus Lupfer limited edition hair brush £13.50

I’m totally not down with knotted hair after a dip in the pool, or battling with tangles after spending the day on the beach. This compact and stylish brush has been designed to effortlessly de-tangle and rid you of knots in one stroke, making it perfect for taking away with you and even using on kids. I adore the new limited edition design too! Buy at House of Fraser >>

Clarins Bronzing Compact £30.00

Not only is this utterly gorgeous, but the combination of tones ensures a result on the skin that’s super natural. Buff into skin using a fluffy brush, glide over the décolletage and even the fronts of legs for a summer glow that will make everyone else green with envy. Buy at John Lewis >>
