Summer Inspo: Our Founders’ Must-Haves

From haircare to sunshine activities, it’s time to get to know the mother-daughter duo behind SILKE London via their top Summer essentials… 


Christine's Must-Haves:

Top hair product recommendation? 

It has to be the SILKE London Heatless Curler Kit – it’s too hot to tong! 

I’m trying to grow and thicken my hair as much as possible, so eliminating heat from my routine entirely is my goal.

Top beauty recommendation? 

The Hourglass glossy balm in shade Slip. It’s so great for Summer as you can build the colour intensity and I can put it on without a mirror as it’s not as intense as a lipstick; it makes your lips so plump and hydrated.

Top summer recommendation? 

I just did a London canal boat ride from Little Venice to Camden which I’d highly recommend. We packed some snacks, champagne and a speaker for the ride so it was like a floating picnic in the sunshine!  


Maria's Must-Haves:

Top hair product recommendation? 

The SILKE London Hair Wrap. I always pick out the Hair Wrap in the colour Poppy for the Summer as it’s so bright and colourful. 

Top beauty recommendation? 

For me, it has to be Clinique’s factor 50 for face and neck - I’m all about sun protection, not just through the Summer, but all year around. Also, the Body Shop’s hemp foot cream and hand cream are two favourites for me! 

Top summer recommendation? 

I like to listen to sound bath sounds on Spotify when I’m relaxing by the pool or at the beach. 


There you have it - let us know your summer essentials over on Instagram & TikTok, @silkelondon 

Love, SILKE xo
