Ad. Summer is here, and adventure awaits! Whether you’re jetting off to a tropical paradise, exploring a new city, or enjoying a relaxing staycation, it’s time to get fully equipped for the season with the best travel essentials.
I’ve teamed up with Boots and handpicked a selection of must-have products from Boots.com to feature in this ultimate holiday packing guide. From waterproof makeup to SPF protection and more, let’s dive in and ensure you have everything you need for a memorable getaway!
Stay Sun-Protected with SPF Foundation:
Embrace the sun while protecting your skin with SPF foundation! I love the lightweight and long-lasting options by IT cosmetics. I use the Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50 as my go-to. Their SPF foundations not only provide a flawless finish but also shield your skin from harmful UV rays. I love that it gives me a radiant complexion without compromising on sun protection.
Mascara That Beats the Heat with Waterproof Mascara:
Summer adventures call for waterproof mascara that won’t smudge or budge! Whether you’re taking a dip in the pool or dancing under the stars, this beauty essential has got your back. Trust me, a coat of Too Faced Better Than Sex will add so much volume and length to your lashes, ensuring a stunning look that lasts all day. You can also say goodbye to raccoon eyes and hello to beautiful, fluttery lashes as this mascara won’t budge all day.
Effortless Latte Glam with Waterproof Eyeliner:
Elevate your holiday makeup with waterproof eyeliner that won’t melt away in the summer heat. Boots offer a fantastic range of shades and formulas that glide on smoothly, creating both bold and subtle eye looks. Whether you’re opting for a dramatic wing or a natural definition, their waterproof eyeliners are your go-to companions for an unforgettable gaze.
I opted for a subtly smoked shadow using rich, warm-toned browns. I love Urban Decay 24-7 eye pencil in Bourbon, it’s a perfect shade and the only eyeliner you’ll need to achieve a latte makeup look by simply blending a bourbon shade waterproof eyeliner across the lid and creasing. It will stay on all day.
Complete Your Haircare Routine with Travel-Sized Bottles:
No need to compromise on your haircare while travelling! From nourishing shampoos to hydrating conditioners, keep your locks happy and healthy throughout your holidays. Plus, you can just pick them up at a Boots store at your departing airport* for added convenience. My forever go-to’s are Aussie Mega Shampoo and Aussie Mega Conditioner.
Stay Hydrated and Refreshed with Moisturisers:
Hydration is key, especially during sunny days! With travel-friendly moisturisers, you can keep your skin supple and moisturised wherever you go. Choose from lightweight gels to rich creams, catering to your skin’s unique needs. Refresh and rejuvenate your skin after a day of exploring with nourishing skincare essentials including my forever favourite Ren Skincare Evercalm Range.
Whether you’re headed for a quick getaway, a staycation, or a dream holiday far away, be sure to pack these travel essential products in your bag or suitcase.
I hope you have a lovely time away looking and feeling like the bronzed goddess that you are.
