The Holiday Edit

I've been really ruthless on deciding what products I'll take on holiday. I've picked products I really love and know work for me.


Skyn ICELAND Glacial Cleansing Cloths x 10 - I don't use wipes that often but sometimes I use them after a night out for a quick cleanse and they are a holiday must have.

Skin & Tonic STEAM CLEAN 15ml - probably my favourite cleansing balm this year. I love it's minty scent and how quickly it gets rid of daily grime and make up.

The Organic Pharmacy Rose Facial Cleansing Gel 10ml (yep I picked up another mini set!) See my initial thoughts on this lovely cleanser HERE.

I'm a huge bodhi & birch fan and I'm packing the mini Rosa Rosa trio - Clarifying Cleanser, Hydrating Toner and Daily Moisturiser. All of these are 5ml. See my review HERE.

Also being packed are 3 Antonia Burrell minis - Forest Dew, Mask Supreme 7-in-1 (review) and Creme Supreme (review) (all 10ml). See my post on the discovery kit HERE.

For eyes it's got to be Josh Rosebrook's amazing Oculus Formula* 1oz which I love. See my review HERE.

Lastly, my favourite de Mamiel Summer Facial Oil 20ml which I simply adore. See my review HERE.


bodhi & birch Mint Thé and Jasmine Falls Bath & Shower Therapy both 50ml - I picked two of my favourite minis which can be used both in the bath and shower. I'm thinking of a cooling relaxing bath after a day in the sun or sightseeing....aahh. See my reviews HERE.

Lj's Natural Solutions Organic Purity Rose Body Oil 50ml - I'm addicted to this stuff! One of my favourite body oils this year. I'm never without a bottle. See my review HERE.

Olivine Love+Salt Beach Hair & Body Mist 2oz - which is summer in a bottle. It smells deliciously of coconut and can be misted through the hair for beach waves or used as a body mist. This came in the S/S '15 a beautiful world box.

I love the shimmery Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse OR 10ml - for a light touch of summer shimmer.  My final item is a Dr Bronner's Lavender Shaving Gel sample.


Philip Kingsley's Elasticizer 20ml - this came in the Latest in Beauty Awards Box (link). I'm a huge fan of this wonder product which makes my hair look healthy and glossy. It's a must have.  Also in there is another Philip Kingsley product Swimcap 50ml which can be used to protect your hair from the sun, wind, chlorine and sea water - it's a new try.

Another product from the #LIBawards box is COLAB Dry Shampoo in Monaco 50ml - I've been keen to try this after reading so many rave reviews.

Yarok's feed your ends leave in conditioner 2oz - is perfect for keeping dry ends conditioned and cared for.

I've also accumulated some sachet samples -


I like a little bit of choice:

Tom Ford White Suede EDP 4ml, The Library of Fragrance Salt Air 15ml, Creed Virgin Island Water vial, Miller Harris Coeur de Jardin vial, Diptyque PhilosykosShay & Blue Watermelons 30ml* a delicious fruity scent (full review upcoming!) and a Travalo filled with Laboratory Perfumes Gorse (review).

What are your holiday picks?
