5 Multi-Use Holiday Essentials

Jetting off somewhere hot and glorious? It’s tempting to throw in your usual favourites, but there’s nothing worse than products that don’t quite cut it in the heat. We can’t leave the runway without…

Micellar Water

Ever suffered a mid-holiday breakout? Us too. Cleansers and make up wipes remove make up, but sunscreen is stubborn to shift and can block pores, causing holiday breakouts (absolutely not ideal). Leave them at home and try Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil Infused Water – in just a swipe it removes sunscreen residue as well as excess oil and make up. 

Overnight Mask

How did we cope before overnight masks? These transparent treats are a real holiday for skin. Not only are they great on the flight to halt dehydration, they also help to soothe skin overnight after a long day basking in the sun. We like Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial, packed full of wild rose oil, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid.

We like XXX, packed full of hyaluronic acid to draw moisture back into skin.

Cream Blush

A cream blush like Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for lips and cheeks is the perfect multiuse product. Not only is it pool-proof, beach-proof and sweat-proof, you can try it on cheeks, lips and eyelids. It’s quick to apply too – right on time for happy hour.

“A waterproof blush is pool-proof, beach-proof and sweat-proof and works on cheeks, lips and eyelids.”

Beach Hair In A Bottle

Natural, straightened, curly or blow out? No matter your holiday hair styling, Bumble + Bumble Surf Spray is a hybrid between a texturising salt spray and hairspray with added oils to combat frizz and stop hair drying out. Take that humidity!

Bug Repeller

Did you know certain scents repel stinging insects and mosquitos? A vanilla-based scent keeps mosquitos at bay by confusing their sense of smell and food (yep – us). If you don’t like sweet fragrances, try something with a base of cedar, patchouli, basil or eucalyptus, which are known bug repellers. We like Burberry My Burberry and Tom Ford White Patchouli 50ml.
