Holidays are getting nearer and the smell of the ocean is in the air, but what essentials are we packing in our travel bag, keep reading to find out our top holiday beauty staples...
BB cream is probably the most important staple for any holiday toiletries bag. When the sun is high and sunbathing and pool parties are all that’s on your mind, a heavy foundation is a recipe for disaster. Patchy skin and melting make up is a no go, so investing in a good light bb cream can give you the colour and coverage you desire whilst still letting your skin breathe. You can find our favourite HERE.
Dry shampoo, the holy grail of holiday essentials… When you are partying all day and night finding time to wash your hair is a killer. Not to mention girls holidays! 5 girls with one plug socket and a dodgy travel hair dryer only calls for hassle. Using a volumizing dry shampoo not only gives your hair an extra bounce but cloaks those nasty oils which are good for your hair but not good for your look. You can purchase our favourite HERE.
Sun screen gives us flash backs to our mum forcing us to coat our noses in jazzy white lotion and look like a lemon all day. But seriously a tan is cool, damaging your skin definitely isn’t. Invest in a good lotion, if you like to tan try an oil with spf, we find this enhances tan and decreases burn whilst still protecting your pretty little face. If not for any other reason sun screen is a favourite purely for the smell, you just cant beat it. You can find our choice HERE.
A staple at home and still a staple on holiday, if your changing outfits every day and don’t want to be caught with clashing nails, take a look at your swimwear and take some colours away with you that compliment each kini. Sounds so silly but it can bring an outfit together, not to mention what girl doesn’t like doing their nails. Our top holiday nail varnish is HERE.
Not the most trendy of essentials, but really deodorant is so important when your going to me loving life in the sun the main thing you want to avoid is wet pits or worse, smelly pits. We really love one deodorant in particular and that Kiehl’s ‘superbly efficient’ deodorant cream. You may think ‘cream’ will make the armpits moist but this deodorant is impeccable dry pits all day and the perfect scent. You can purchase HERE.
