Holiday Essentials


Hey everyone! I can’t believe Ibiza is in single figures now! So i thought id share with you all a short blog post today of some of the products ill be using that i think are essential for holiday! Your probably thinking where’s suncream ect?! But they are necessary so these products for some maybe aren’t essential but to get the best beach ready look i think these type of products are what we all should have.

Left to right

Nivea Aftersun Spray and Vitamin E 200ml Lotion – I love putting after sun on after a day of sunbathing. This one i picked up half price in Superdrug and smells amazing.

Barry M Gelly nail paint in ‘Mango’ – I love the colour of this polish! I bought this ready to paint my toe and finger nails. It’s such a pretty summer colour and perfect for the beach.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in  ‘Silky Beige 5’ – I absolutely swear by this product! I bought a new one to take on holiday and its great after putting foundation on to set the face. Makes my face smooth and non sticky and does exactly what it says, makes it a matte finish.

E.L.F Tinted moisturizer with SPF 20  in ‘beige’ – I’ll be using this product through the day, it acts as a very light foundation but protects my face from burning. It’s really light base so gives the appearance i have no foundation on – a natural look.

Rimmel BB Cream Matte in ‘medium’ – Like the Elf moisturizer this is another product i will use through the day with spf 15. I think i will use this more to top up through the day to make sure my face is protected.

Collection Bronze Glow Mosaic in ‘sunkissed’ – This product i have bought for years, another product i swear by that i will be using on a night time as a bronzer, blush and eyeshadow!

Soap & Glory Travel Size Righteous Butter™ Body Butter – I’ll use this on a night for my legs and arms before i go out, similar to after sun! 

Yves Saint Laurent Singulier Nuit blanche waterproof mascara – Waterproof mascara is essential for through day in and out of the pool and sea. This mascara is great for volume and a bonus that its waterproof!

What do you think of my holiday essentials?
