I've been using the Sunsense Daily Face Factor 50 since last spring after receiving a sample sized tube in a Glossybox. Although I have always used a high factor sunscreen I often find them quite thick and when I get hot, they seem to melt and run in my eyes making them sting, but I don't have that problem with this lightweight cream that I have also been using whenever I've been out and about these last few weeks and the sun has been shining. I wouldn't be without it now. £20.99 for 75ml perfect for keeping within the 100ml hand baggage restriction of which you are allowed 1 litre total liquids.
Everyone else gets the cheap stuff but I like to be seen using something nice on myself. As we usually travel with hand baggage only I order our sunscreens from Boots online and pick up at the airport once through passport control when you don't need to worry about liquids. Make sure you choose the "airside" and not "landside" branch from the correct departure terminal ie north or south if flying from Gatwick or 1,2,3,4,5 if flying from Heathrow. Easy. Clinique Factor 30 £20.
LIPS AND CHEEKS
I've been using the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for lips and cheeks every holiday for years now. You can't beat a dual purpose product when trying to travel light. I have Rose at the moment but am thinking coral or melon this year. I don't like to use powder of any sort on holiday but take a translucent powder compact incase I get hot. £19.
I always wear coral, orange or tangerine hued nail polish on holiday with Chanel's "Orange Fizz" and "Holiday" being favourites in recent years. This year I shall be purchasing "Mirabella" slightly more orange than orange fizz. £17.50.
THE TAN ENHANCER
I love most of the Fake Bake products which is why I use them on a professional level on clients as well as on myself, but the reason I adore the Tan Enhancer so much is because it works on a natural as well as a fake tan, giving longevity and gold glistening particles to both. £13.
These Dermalogica skin kits are perfect for travelling light and will easily last you on a two week vacation if used sparingly. The kits contain everything you need for your daily skincare regime and I find the cleansing gel bottle and toner spray come in really handing for decanting other products once empty, I have a stock of them in my holiday drawer just waiting to be filled! £25.50 available for skin types.
Two new products I will continue to use as I love them both! Shop here and save £10 on a £25 shop and £25 off a £50 shop with free standard delivery on orders over £25.
