Summer holiday essentials

summer essentials

Life has been hectic lately and I am day dreaming about my upcoming summer holidays!

Sunsets, cocktails, tanning, beach hair…I can’t wait!

Here’s the low down on my favourite summer holiday products that I have to take away with me.

Essie – Ole Caliente 

Without a doubt, this is my favourite nail polish! It’s a red-orange-pink-coral colour all in one and just makes your nails pop…especially with a tan! I can’t go away without having my toes and fingers painted in this colour.

La Roche Posay Anthelios Sun Spray SPF 30

I love the sun and I love tanning but we have to be careful. I always make sure to apply at least a factor 30 on my body. I love La Roche Posay Sun Spray as it smells delicious and protects you from dark spots.

Avene High Protection Cream SPF 50 

I always go for a factor 50 on my face when out in the sun on holiday, it’s so important to protect your face. This face cream is amazing! It contains the Avene thermal spring water so is so refreshing as it protects.

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour Skin Protectant Cream 

The sun can take it’s toll on your skin so I always bring the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour Skin Protectant Cream with me. It’s a great multi-tasker. I add it to chapped lips and elbows and knees, to highlight my cheeks, taming eyebrows and eyelashes and soothing cuticles. The uses are endless!

Tangle Teezer

Perfect for combing out hair that’s been at the beach all day without causing too much damage.

Morrocan Hair Oil 

This oil is the best for holiday hair. I wear it during the day, especially at the beach, and after washing my hair. It stops your hair from drying out from all the chlorine in the pool and the sun shine. It just drinks it up!

Dove Gradual Tan Moisturiser

It’s important to keep your skin super hydrated especially when it’s been exposed to so much sun. I love the Dove gradual tan moisturiser to keep my tan topped up while moisturising it.

Benefit High Beam

I love nothing better than tanned skin that looks glowey and shimmery! Benefit High Beam gives you that great luminescent, dewy flush although so are so many other alternatives. Benefit do a lot of them!!

Drink Up™ Intensive

Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask

I like to keep my skin super hydrated on long haul flights and feel like it needs an extra boost when I’m away so I choose the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask.

MAC Cremesheen Glass – Astral

Lastly, I think coral/pink lips looks great with a tanned face. One of my favourites is MAC Cremesheen Glass in Astral .

  1. So many good picks on here! That Essie polish looks so fun! My Tangle Teaser is my life and I love High Beam. I have nominated you for a Liebster Award! I made a few tweaks to the tag and if you want to read about it or answer any of the questions, I’d love to read. Congrats!
