A protective facial day cream

During the summer months, the skin is more exposed to the sun's rays. A day at the beach or poolside, sunbathing on the weekend or on holiday, there are plenty of opportunities to soak up the sun. While good sun protection is indispensable when you're planning to spend time outside, it's also a necessity for your everyday routine. UV rays can damage your skin whether you're at the seaside or in town. Use a light, smooth facial product such as Immortelle Precious Light Cream to moisturise and protect your skin with SPF 20.

A refreshing shower gel for the body

Want to feel cool as the temperatures rise? For an immediate burst of freshness, use Exfoliating Verbena Shower Gel enriched with organic verbena extract from the fragrant plants that grow along Provençal lanes. Its delicate citrus fragrance leaves your body and mind feeling cool and invigorated. This scrubbing gel transforms into a rich foam that leaves your skin clean, smooth and soft. It's perfect for eliminating dead skin cells and buffing your summer glow.

A nourishing hair mask

Repeated exposure to salt or chlorinated water, UV rays and wind can cause your hair to become drab. Hair that is dull and tangled needs a moisturising treatment more often than usual. If you use Aromachologie Repairing Hair Mask normally once a week, start treating your locks every other day during summer. With its anti-breakage formula, this revitalising blend of essential oils restores your hair's strength and shine by deeply repairing its structure.

An irresistible sparkling fragrance

More than any other season, summer is a time for a new you. Refresh your outlook by trying a new scent with lighter notes. Escape to the heart of Provence with Citrus Verbena Eau de Toilette . Fruity and sparkling, this energising fragrance combines lemon, grapefruit, orange and verbena. Applied to your pulse points, this brilliant blend lingers in your wake.

A scented mist for the skin

Who hasn't dreamt of a cool breeze on summer's hottest days? Filled with fresh ingredients, Verbena Body Mist gives you the same sensation as a light breeze against your skin. Its alcohol-free formula is gentle and helps maintain your skin's hydration level. Tips? Spritz on your face and body, then gently blot away any excess with a tissue. Result: smoother skin and a fresh complexion.
