Summer Suitcase Must Haves

Following on from my last post – What's in my Suitcase & Packing Tips – I thought I would share a few of the must-have holiday products that I purchase before I travel. From skin care and hair care to bikinis and the comfiest sandals, these are the essentials that always make it into my suitcase!

Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil 100ml £21.50
This protects your hair and hair colour from UVA/UVB damage and can be used as heat protector when styling. Vitamin E and sunflower seed oil protect against free radicals and the shea butter helps to detangle. It also smells like summer!

Moroccanoil Frizz Control 100ml for 19.45
Nobody wants to look like Monica from Friends when she goes on holiday. (Remember The One in Barbados?!) This eliminates the frizz caused by humidity and controls static. It also has weather resistant properties and will keep hair manageable as you move from humid heat to equally damaging air con.

Swimwear that makes you feel confident

Comfortable Sandals
UGG/ Sketchers are ideal, basically anything with padding if you are going to be doing a lot of walking.

Travel size samples
Save up the mini-versions of your favourite skincare over the year and off you go!
