Travel Beauty Essentials

If you’re lucky enough to be going away this summer, try not to stuff your beauty bag. Pack smart with these goodies:

This works clean skin 5-in-1 Water – £13
Ideal for summer travel, hassle free cleansing is easy with this works clean skin 5-in-1 water. It is a multitasking rosewater cleanser that effectively removes make-up decongests and brightens the skin. I use it at home and away.

Dr Hauschka Daily Escapes Travel Set – £21
This travel set contains small versions of bestselling Dr H products – cleansing milk, cleansing cream and facial toner. It is perfect for taking on holiday to help maintain a naturally radiant complexion when on the go.

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo – £5.89
This is not one for those with natural hair but if you have braids, weave or relaxed hair this will work fine for you. Simply spray on to absorb oil and sweat between shampoos. It also helps transform fine, flat hair and gives you a volume boost.


ESPA Mandarin Lip balm – £10
A 100% natural formulation, this new ESPA Lip balm is enriched with mandarin essential oil for a beautiful orange scent, wild mango butter to soften and condition, pomegranate to increase hydration and rosemary to protect against environmental damage. The packaging is lovely too.


Chanel L’Ete Papillion de Chanel – from £18
Chanel can do no wrong in my makeup book (I’m talking Chanel, not Karl Lagerfeld) and their summer collection was designed to be worn on holiday. Certainly not one for the colour shy, the bright hues will look perfect against sun kissed skin. My favourite product is the nail colour Bel Argus; it applies wonderfully and is as thick, creamy and expensive looking and feeling as you want it to be.


These two I like because they are small enough (in size and volume – they are not over 100ml) to fit in your hand luggage so you can keep your skin on point en route!

skyn ICELAND Arctic Hydrating Balm – £25
A deeply reparative moisturising skin replenisher, the Arctic Hydrating Balm harnesses cryogenic technology from the Arctic and Antarctic to soothe and repair super dry, sensitive skin. Apply generously on long haul flights to hydrate your skin.


Orico Rush Hour Dry Body Oil – £19
This rapidly absorbed, ultra-nourishing organic body oil restores and revitalises dry skin to its sheer, radiant and glowing best – a perfect post sun treat.


Bonne vacances!

On Your Way to Body Beautiful

As Summer has been cancelled in the UK, if you’re after a bit of sun I suggest you head abroad. Exercise is essential to being bikini ready but there are lotions and potions that can help get you there that bit faster.

I’m currently using Perfect Cleavage Firming Lotion from this works and Get Waisted Body Shaper from Mama Mio.


Perfect cleavage firming lotion is an award-winning, nourishing blend of essential oils and plant extracts that helps rid your bust of fine lines and wrinkles and leave skin feeling firmer and more radiant.

It contains larch extract to firm and tighten; vitamin-rich algae, tonka bean and frankincense to reduce fine lines, as well as nourishing rose and pomegranate oils to plump and enhance the delicate skin on your neck and chest.

Get Waisted body shaping cream contains seven extracts from algae, rock samphire and guarana for detoxifying, stimulating and sculpting benefits in the areas most of us need it most; the tummy. Love handles, mummy tummy, muffin top; it’s something both men and women battle with.

Rub one pump of this award winning gel/cream hybrid into the area from below your boobs to as far down as you like for at least 30 seconds every day to not only aid digestion but to help, as the tube says ‘bust your gut’ and ‘rehab for abs’. It’s important to use it every day and for at least 30 seconds and while you won’t turn into a svelte supermodel overnight (I wish); you will have a softer, smoother, tighter tum. I am all over this product right now!

Get Waisted – £35
Perfect Cleavage Firming Lotion – £37
