Beach Ready Beauty – Must Have Products for a trip to Kent’s Seaside

As the weather hots up so do our choices in beauty products, especially those we bring to the beach! Known to some as the California of the UK, there’s no better place than Kent’s beaches to look your best this summer. Here to help you get golden, glow up and simply sparkle this season, we’ve rounded up our must-have beauty products so you’re ready for the Kentish Riviera:


The Bronzing Boost Drops are available for £14.95 and can be purchased from

BPerfect Cosmetics brand new product the Instant Bronze Boost Drops, has been flying off the shelves this summer, giving a sun-kissed glow to natural beauties everywhere – Much like the viral Drunk Elephant DBronzi drops – BPerfect have perfected this more affordable dupe!

The drops can be worn alone for a natural sun kissed glow, or combined with skincare/base products. Designed with hydration at the forefront, the formula is a hybrid liquid gel, infused with skincare and light reflecting pigments – a flawless, glowy look can be achieved in a matter of minutes.

The ICONIC London Illuminator [RRP £32.00] is a must-have product for anyone lusting after a desirably dewy complexation.

Next, delicately dust a little of the ICONIC London Kissed By The Sun [£25.00] along your cheeks for a sun-kissed summer look.

SOS Serum is available at Superdrug and from £16

Whilst we should all know the importance of using SPF 50 and topping up regularly, sometimes sunburn can happen, and we need to know what to use to treat it. This might explain why UK Google searches for ‘how to heal sunburn fast’, ‘how to soothe sunburn’, ‘how to help sunburn’, and ‘best thing for sunburn’ have increased by 200%, 200%, 80%, and 50% respectively.

Formulated to cool, heal and repair problem skin, the soothing SOS Serum contains anti-inflammatory Wasabi and calming Burdock Leaf Extracts and the refined extract of cooling Peppermint and Lauromacrogols which acts as an anaesthetic to soothe the skin. Together they deliver comfort, moisturisation, hydration and rapid relief of sun damaged skin.
