There is nothing quite like the smell of suncream to get you in to the holiday mood and with only a few days before we depart to sunny Greece, my beauty packing has already begun. Us girls spend a fortune on day creams, night creams, eye creams, lip creams, you name it – we buy an expensive cream for it, but when it comes to sun cream, perhaps the most important of them all – we get what’s on offer at Boots! Well this holiday I am living it up with a beach bag full of designer products, some of which I would like to share with you…
Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30
I will never go less than a 30 on my face, sun is a catalyst to the ageing process and with only a few days left in my 20’s, it doesn’t need any additional help! It’s not a total sun block so you will still return home with a holiday glow, but always find a trusted brand with a high factor for this delicate skin.
Clinique SPF35 Targeted Protection Stick
Lips can get quite dry in the sun, obviously I don’t intend to let this happen with the amount of cocktails I plan on consuming but just in case, this is a lovely smooth stick that can also be used under the eyes or anywhere else that is suffering in the sun!
Clarins Sun Care Milk Lotion Spray SPF20
This spray really is the smell of summer and moisturises beautifully on to your body.
Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil
I’ll be getting my roots done just a couple of days before the holiday so to avoid my hair regressing into bleached straw, I will be spraying it generously with this hair veil from Aveda.
Arbonne Baby Sun Cream SPF30
Savannah will be coated in this cream from head to toe. Born in December and with less than a week of real sunshine since, her fair and sensitive skin is not at all used to the sun and heat so it is important to use protection especially created for infants.
Proderm Kids Sun Mousse SPF30
This is a fantastic mousse that rubs in easily, great for manic toddlers that won’t sit still!
Avon Skin So Soft Dry Oil Body Spray
With a high dose of citronella, it is a great alternative to mosquito repellant and highly recommended by mums!
Dermalogica After Sun Repair
If I don’t quite make it back to the room before starting on my evening cocktails, it’s best to keep this on me – some people keep it in the fridge, cold lotions give me no pleasure whatsoever, burnt or not.
And the Beach Bag? My trusty Le Pliage of course…
