I'm flying out to Marbella this Friday and I couldn't be more excited about it! Bring on the cocktails, Spanish sunshine and beautiful beaches! I'm going away with my girlfriends and we've had endless emails back and fourth discussing what beauty essentials we need to take away with us, a dilemma at its best!
We're travelling on a low cost airline and only have one suitcase between us for our shoes, outfits etc which means we need to pack lightly when it comes to our beauty treats! At first I was scared about what I'd have to go without in order to fit everything in my teeny tiny Mulberry weekend holdall (photographed above) but thankfully I've discovered a few 'mini' versions of absolute essentials I simply couldn't go on holiday without!
ARK Age Prepare Discovery Collection
This super handy little zip-up toiletry comes complete with literally everything you could possibly need to maintain your flawless complexion whilst away on holiday- so no need to sacrifice your skincare regime! The best thing about this little saviour of a set is the products are all 30ml which is rather generous if you ask me as normally travel sizes tend to be the smallest they can get away with being! I love how useful the zip-up bag is too, so great to take on the plane as you can see everything inside it and theres even enough room to fit a few extra products in!
- 1 x 30ml Masque
- 1 x 30ml Cleanser
- 1 x 30ml Exfoliator
- 1 x 30ml Moisturiser
How adorable is the little hairdryer by BaByliss?! I love it, and it's completely solved my hairdryer dilemma its tiny so fits into my holdall no problem at all and so light too! So at least I won't be worrying about frizzy hair on holiday!! I never like risking not taking a hairdryer as the ones you get in hotel rooms are never up to scratch and it always takes forever to dry your hair! More time sunning myself, less time blow drying! I've given this little baby a test run and I can happily report it's very good and surprisingly powerful for something so small! Nice one BaByliss, you've done it again!
NEW Sheer Blonde Brightening Oil Elixir by John Frieda
Calling all the blonde headed beauties out there- you will LOVE this hair oil by John Frieda! I'm a huge fan of a hair oil so when this newly launched oil landed in my palms I couldn't wait to get it in my hair to test it out! Designed exclusively for blonde hair this oil works instantly to revive dull (which unfortunately is a common problem us blondes have to deal with!) and dry hair for an improved, brighter blonde colour. This product includes a heat protectant, Argan and sunflower oils.
Burt's Bees have put together these handy travel essentials to take away on holiday or to festivals this summer, I can safely say after trying them out they will definitely be coming with me!
I particularly love The Miracle Salve its a multipurpose product so will save you taking lots of individuals away with you, saving you space which is always welcome in my books! This salve helps moisturise and nourish hair, body and hands with a super-enriched formula including Pumpkin Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Wheat Germ extract and of course protein-rich Bee Pollen to nourish and rejuvenate, while the emollient beeswax holds in essential moisture- fabulous!
