that the sun is making an appearance
here and there, almost everyone I know
is "talking holidays".
With our unpredictable weather it's no
wonder we Brits are obsessed with holidays
abroad. By this time of year we're all
desperate to see the sun and shed a few
I'm not a lover of holidays abroad (I
know I'm unusual) and usually holiday
in this country but I'm aware of how tricky
it is now to take our beauty products
Weight restrictions are necessary but
can prove to be a challenge if you're
away for a fortnight.
many companies are now recognizing this
and there are many really good brands
which cater for our travel needs. High-end
skincare brands such as Liz Earle, Elemis
and Decleor all do travel sizes so there's
no need to let your routine slip when
you're away. And there is so much choice
on the High street now, in small, travel
acceptable sizes from skin care, to hair
care, to sun care. I can find all my usual
favourites from John Frieda at Boots,
who also do a great range in Mark Hill,
Umberto Gianni and other top stylist ranges,
all in suitable travel quantities.
Lynx even do a mini shower gel for boys
& men to take away. Check out Soltans
travel size factor 30 spray in 75ml sizes
and even Colgate offer their advanced
clean toothpaste in a dinky 25ml size.
Toni & Guy have a little mini hair serum
- usually essential in the heat and also
a tiny hairspray. Soap and Glory from
Boots have practically their whole range
in travel sizes and even Johnson's baby
shampoo is available for little ones abroad.
can even fake your tan whilst you're away
if you're too busy to sunbathe with Famous
Dave's spray tan travel size (handy if
it pours down!) FCUK do a handy weekend
getaway kit containing body wash, body
lotion and body spray in their new Signature
Collection, an exotic oriental fragrance
which will double up as perfume.
If you're planning a holiday romance then
you'll need Listerene's Mini Mouthwash.
If you're a lady who can't do without
her luxury products on holiday then Estee
Lauder have several beautiful collections
in a handy see-through travel bag containing
all you should need to keep your holiday
skin beautiful. And don't forget to check
out our own range of travel hair tools
from the Ice Diamond Dare collections
containing both dryers and straighteners.
always like to take new bathing products
away on holiday - it somehow adds to the
atmosphere of lazy days and the fragrance
change can be really uplifting. This year
I'm taking the gorgeous Champney's Mediterranean
Bliss range to indulge in that fabulous
spa-like smell and feel. I've had a sneaky
try-out and I absolutely loved them all,
especially the Shimmering Body Oil which
smells divine. I'll also be taking my
new 'best buy' - an YSL lipstick in a
shade called Silky Apricot. There's no
doubt about it, orange is definitely the
hottest colour of the moment - in clothes,
nails, handbags and yes, even lips. Gone
are the bright reds of winter, anyone
who is anyone this year is opting for
So I'm following on behind. Although I'm
ready to wear bright oranges and corals
I wasn't sure about them on my lips so
I've gone for the YSL one which is highly
moisturizing and a softer look.
your lip shade is essential if you wear
orange as the pinks, plums and reds just
do not go. If you can't do coral then
go for a nude, but trust me, all the fashionista's
are sporting strong orange lips such as
Ruby and Millie Orange 350. If you're
on a budget or just want an occasional
flirtation with the colour go for Barry
M's Lip Paint in coral.
Whatever the weather this summer don't
forget your sun protection, which can
be harmful even through cloud cover. Check
