Hello lovelies. So yesterday was (kind of) my final shopping day before holiday, which is always fun because it means I can stock up on some beauty 'essentials'. I decided to pick up a new hair mousse, because my hair can get quite flat when I'm on holiday (I have a feeling this is something to do with the water abroad, anyone else noticed this?). I ended up picking the Garnier Fructis Style Big Volume Mousse to try, because it was on offer and also because I remember how amazing these products smell! I'll let you know how/if this gamble worked out when I get home.
Next, I was on the hunt for my favourite Aveeno daily radiance moisturiser but I couldn't find it in Boots anywhere, so I picked up this Soap and Glory 'Glow Job' Radiance Moisture Lotion because it claims to do the same job. As usual in Boots, there was an offer on and, as usual, it sucked me in. It was buy one get one half price, so I chose the Soap and Glory 'No Clogs Allowed' Deep Pore Detox Mask. I used this last night and really liked it, so I'll keep using it once a week and let you know what I think when I've made my mind up.
I repurchased Benefit Hoola bronzer, because it's just a must have. And also went back to an old summer favourite, Barry M lip gloss in 'coral' - this is such a lovely, non-sticky gloss and it smells like juicy fruit bubble gum. I love this! After picking up a new supply of bobbles and hair grips, I went to Body Shop to finish off my coconut supply for holiday. I have the shower gel and perfume packed already and, since I was at risk of not being quite coconut-y enough, I picked up the Body Shop Coconut Body Milk as well. This lotion is a lot lighter than the body butter, and it sprays on too so it's perfect for taking on holiday. And last but not least, I picked up a little Body Shop hand sanitiser in mango, to carry around in my bag. These are perfect for the beach, and unlike other sanitisers, they smell lovely too!
What's your beauty essentials for holiday? Have you tried any of these products?
p.s by the time this post goes live, I'll be on my way to the airport! It's so exciting writing that! I've been so busy that I haven't had time to get many posts scheduled, so it's going to be pretty quiet on here for the next week - but you can keep up to date with me and on twitter and instagram! :) xxx
