insideKENT’s beauty must-haves for summer

Summer is just around the corner, and as a place full of beaches, countryside and fabulous towns to enjoy in the sunshine, looking our best while exploring them can be just as exciting. That’s why we’ve rounded up our favourite beauty must-haves to make this summer go with a glow. 

There is no denying a sun kissed glow makes everyone feel fresher, radiant and healthier and the safest way to achieve a natural looking bronzed look is by staying in the shade and using a tan in a bottle.

This is where ICONIC London’s Prep-Set-Tan comes in. Infused with the most premium tanning agents to give the best golden glowing tan yet and enriched with hyaluronic acid gives you a nourished, healthy looking and even tan. This little bottle of joy is far more than just a tanning mist. Part faux tan, part skin care product is non-comedogenic so doesn’t clog pores and with its lightweight water-based sweet-smelling formula means there’s no need to rinse off. The hydrating properties in Prep-Set-Tan helps to provide a nourished looking tan which lasts longer without drying out your skin and gathering around ankles, wrists and elbows.

Available in two gorgeous glistening shades [original and glow], Prep-Set-Tan is suitable for all skin tone and loved by celebrities and MUA’s alike. After three hours of spritzing, you will start to notice a beautifully natural glow and after eight hours of application your golden tan will be fully developed and should last for 3-7 days.

ICONIC London’s London Prep-Set-Tan is available at for £24.00


Lip care heroes, Carmex, are thrilled to announce the launch of their latest product – Wild Berry Lip Balm Tube. This brand-new tube of joy is packed full with the sweet scent of freshly picked raspberries, blackberries and cranberries and destined to be your new all-time favourite.

Don’t let its cuteness fool you… delivering an instant boost of hydration, this little beauty helps repair, relieve and restore lips whilst protecting them from drying out. What’s more, this tingle free tube has the addition bonus of SPF15, making it the perfect summer essential product.

With lip-loving natural ingredients, such as lanolin and cacao seed butter, this make-up bag must-have acts as the perfect hydrating primer, or even as a topcoat after applying lipstick. Either way, make sure you’re not without your Carmex this summer.
