When it comes to holiday beauty I tend to keep my regime pretty simple – especially when you’re lugging it about on your back, it’s best to only take the necessities. I’m happy to take key products but I like to make sure they are some of my favourites that do the job well rather than taking lots of products. I wanted to put together a post on my top 5 ‘desert island beauty products’ that I couldn’t have been without this trip – here goes!…
Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Serum: I absolutely adore this oil, we used it everytime we washed our hair during the trip – as it’s quite rich you only need a couple of drops each time, just comb it through the ends of your hair and let the shiny, healthy locks dry before your eyes!
Davines Oi Shampoo: This award winning shampoo aims to offer extra shine, softness and body which for me is the perfect recipe for holiday hair. My hair normally stands the sun quite well but can be quite dry so this shampoo was perfect for my trip as it restored some life into it!
Davines Oi Conditioner: I took this conditioner as one of it’s main aims is to speed up the drying process of hair, throughout the whole month I think I blow dried and straightened my hair twice when we were going for fancy meals. Other than that I usually just spritz some salt spray and leave it to dry so this conditioner was the perfect partner for this use – it also left my hair feeling super soft too!
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Perfume: This perfume gives me life. Sweet, summery goodness – if all your happiest summer memories could be rolled together and turned into a perfume then this is it! I’ve written about this perfume a fair few times now but I’ll never not love it – it’s the perfect summer scent, I took a 30ml bottle away for the month which we used daily, I have about a quarter left but I’ll be repurchasing at my first opportunity as I love it so much!
Davines Hair Refresher: This hair refresher was a perfect pick-me-up for the days in between hair washing days, the formal is a lightweight mist so your hair doesn’t feel bogged down which I find you can get with some dry shampoos. This product left my hair smelling so good and it felt as though I’d just washed it – safe to say there’s none left after our trip away, the perfect travelling companion!
