Packing Light? 5 Holiday Beauty Essentials

Packing Light? 5 Holiday Beauty Essentials

Prepping for your summer holiday and trying to cram in as much as possible to a meagre 23kg? Us too. To give you a helping hand, we’ve sourced 5 beauty items that will save your life (and those all important kilograms!) leaving more space for your clothes…

Dermalogica Skin Kit, £25.50

Dermalogica, FashionBite

I’ve long been an admirer of Dermalogica products. I’ve been using their Ultra Calming range for a while now, as I’d been getting patchy redness on my cheeks, but this has virtually disappeared after a few months of using the products. The Skin Kits feature travel size versions of all the brand’s key hero products, with a travel pouch to match, and are available for a range of skin types from dry to normal and oily. The perfect size for your summer holidays!

Lee Stafford Argan Oil Deep Nourishing Treatment, £14.99

Lee Stafford, FashionBite

I’m a huge fan of Lee Stafford products, but this product in particular is an absolute miracle worker on dry, dyed or sun-stressed hair. The Lee Stafford range comes in travel sizes, which is stocked exclusively at Boots, but if you invest in one standard sized product- let it be the Argan Oil Deep Nourishing Treatment. Wash your hair first, then apply the mask all over and leave for about 5 minutes, then rinse out and condition as normal. He recommends you do this every time you wash your hair, until you get the condition back, then once a week as a regular top-up. Perfect for gorgeous holiday locks!

Elemis Madras Spa Travel Wipes For Face & Body, £4

Elemis travel wipes, FashionBiteThese are the perfect size to pop in your handbag or beach bag. For face or body, you can easily cleanse away salt, sand and make-up and the refreshing grapefruit and lemon fragrance gives you that instant pick-me-up. With aloe vera and chamomile, they’re also lovely and soothing on your skin after a day in the sun.

Clayspray’s H20 Spray With Green Tea, £17.50

Clayspray facial spritz, FashionBite

Cool down instantly with this instantly refreshing H2O facial spritz. Containing mineral rich mountain spring water, infused with green tea antioxidants, it’s the perfect accompaniment to a hot day on the beach.

Autograph Ultra Sine Twist-Up Lip Colour, £9.50

Autograph Twist-Up Lip colourLipstick, gloss or balm? You only need to pack one with the new Ultra Shine Twist-Up Lip colour range from Marks & Spencer. A multi-tasking crayon it gives lips colour, shine and moisture all in one. You also won’t need to pack a sharpener, as the twist base means the crayon never needs sharpening. In eight shades, from Plum Shine to Nude, there’s a colour for everyone. My favourite is Apricot – looks fab with a tan!
