Having sun-kissed skin is one of the main reasons I love summer so much. A few freckles across my nose, a bit of a tan on my forehead and cheeks, and hopefully fewer spots after having immersed my face in saltwater. Unfortunately, however, this time of year is the most dangerous for our skin—we all know how damaging too much of the sun’s ultraviolet light can be, causing hyperpigmentation, severe dryness and of course, increasing the risk of developing skin cancer. And with Europe seemingly heating up more and more every year, it’s never been more important to invest in a quality SPF within a skincare regime that helps protect the skin, especially in the height of summer.
As a beauty editor, I know all too well of the amount of products available that all claim to offer the same thing, so understand it can be difficult—let alone expensive—to cut through the noise and determine what actually works. That’s why I always recommend BEAUTY PIE. In case you’re not familiar with the brand making waves across the industry, let me enlighten you. Almost like a members’ club for beauty, you pay a monthly fee and receive heavily discounted prices on all its products.
The business model is quite the beauty utopia—the products are created by leading cosmetic scientists around the world using the very best ingredients, be it retinol treatments, makeup or supplements, and the brand only sells direct to consumer. Cutting out the middle man (i.e. not relying on retailers or celebrity endorsements to sell its products), BEAUTY PIE is able to offer innovative formulas and premium-quality products at much more affordable prices. What’s more (yes, there’s more!) is that you can now sign up for free with the 30 Day Access Pass*, and, if you are a new member, get £10 off your first order with code SUMMER10 at checkout. So you really are getting the best quality skincare at a fraction of the cost.
