A week today I'm heading to sunny Spain, Madrid to be exact. I can't tell you how excited I am for so real sunshine, but as I've not been away this summer I've maybe left my legs to do their own thing. I HATE shaving my legs, it's easily my least favourite beauty chore so when Veet* offered an alternative, I couldn't resit trying out waxing.
I used my Body Shop scrub in Peach the day before using the waxing kit. I have pretty dry skin and knew using a scrub and waxing kit the same day would be awful for my little legs. I'm a big wimp so I had to brace myself to use the Veet Wax Roll on Kit, the kit takes around 20 minutes to heat up so I managed to talk myself into it during the heating time. The kit is so easy to use, you roll on the wax, apply the strip and pull - voila. Okay, I don't have the biggest pain threshold and I do have hairy legs so the first few strips weren't that pleasant. However, the more I did the easier it got. You get some little wipes in the pack to help remove any excess stickiness, which are really useful for your hands!
After I finished my waxing, I applied my Lavera Coconut and Vanilla body lotion, which I actually got form Germany. I love the scent, it reminds me of ice cream and makes me smell all Summery. I always find that when I buy a product form holiday, it always reminds me of happy memories from my jollies.
Finally I had to ensure my feet looked just as pretty as my hair-free legs. I've been loving the P2 Volume Gloss gel-like nail polish (again from Germany). The formula is incredible and so long lasting, this polish cost me around 99p - these are an absolute steal. If you're in Europe and stumble across P2 as a brand, I recommend you buy as much as possible.
I can't wait for Madrid to discover some Spanish beauty brands. I'm obsessed with supermarkets and beauty stores that are native to a particular country. Roll on Spanish beauty products.
