Off on your holibobs? You lucky thing! While most people remember to pack the sun cream, sun hat and sunnies, below are a few key beauty essentials that might just get missed.

Don’t forget to take a quick peek at our promos and discount codes to see if you can nab some money off your items!

Eyes

When it comes to your eyes, less is more on hols… but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear anything. Waterproof mascara, nude eyeshadow and refreshing gel patches should be your best friends.

Face

Be sure to sun-cream up in the day of course, but summer holiday facial care extends right into the evening too. That’s why we’ve picked out this charcoal cleansing peel to keep your skin looking fresh, as well as makeup setting spray for those nights out on the town when it gets a little sweaty and warm!
