There is nothing nicer than going on holiday - but what do you take make up and skincare wise? I talked a little while ago about great products for a long flight, but we were discussing this at bb HQ the other day and all giving our opinions on what we actually use day to day on vacation. So here we go with my Top 4 break blitzers - that won't break the bank!
It Almost Rubs the Sunscreen in For You...
This is a wonder product. I admit, I was sceptical about the benefits of bb creams - but then I tried the erborian version. Their bb crème au ginseng is spectacularly good - and the three in one formula (sunscreen, moisturiser, sheer foundation) means more room in your luggage for clothes! I have very pale skin and the light version is, amazingly, light enough for me - so a real win.
NB: Vegetables Don't Just Belong in Breakfast Juice.
I have a great passion for anything new and natural - but it has to do the job well. Skincare on holidays can sometimes go astray, mainly because we can't be bothered lugging around screeds of stuff in our luggage - so an easy to carry exfoliant is always a winner. My latest love? It has to be yes to carrots' nourishing little number - it is natural and it's effective. It smells amazing too!
The Good Oil
If you are going anywhere with a wind chill factor - or just a lot of wind - nothing beats a great facial or body oil. A lot of people have misconceptions about how cosmetic oils work - they feel that they actually make our skin greasy, when in fact it is just the opposite; they break down the toxins in the 'bad oils' on our skin and work with our own body's good oils to make skin supple and soft. Planet Eve's Facial Cleansing Oil is a skin saviour - any autumn or winter breaks you take will be benefited by it.
Lip Smackingly Good
On holidays, fuss free is fabulous - so any product that is easy to use, low key and long lasting is a winner. Makeup wise, that means OCC Lip Tars - they are pigment rich, natural and they last for hours and hours. Slick them on and run - just add mascara and you have a low key but luscious pout and a handy travel-tote sized product to boot.
So there you have it - four easy and effective holiday solutions, whether you are sunning it or shading. What are your favourite breakout break-takers? Let us know here! And of course go to bellabox to purchase any of our great products!
