Its just over a month til my holiday to Kos with my lovely bf and I'm already a little bit excited! I think it is because I enjoy packing my suitcase, is that strange? I wanted to do a quick post about some holiday essentials:
Most important is sun cream! I am very pale and always like to make sure I am buying the best sun cream to avoid getting burnt. TK Maxx had Piz Buin for sale at £5.99 a bottle which I thought was great value so I grabbed a couple of bottles. I just found that they also do a tan intensifier version although not sure if it actually makes any difference. There is also a matching after-sun lotion, which is important to use to re-hydrate your skin after a day in the sun.
Another of my own products will be the lush Mandarin Dreams shower bar. I love fruity smells especially on holiday and this bar has loads of cocoa butter in too so it makes your skin silky soft as well as being clean and refreshed. Its only £2.49 for 100g.
Whilst in the shower I will be using a lemon solid shampoo bar, one of these bars will last for ages, even washing hair every day. I usually cut mine into quarters and just use a hand held piece. £2.49 for 100g is amazing value especially as i get 3 or 4 washes out of just one quarter and I have long thick hair.
My hair usually gets frazzled on holiday due to the heat, chlorine from the pool and also its not used to being washed every single day so a good conditioner is important. Normally a deep conditioning treatment would make my hair greasy but it will need some extra tlc. I'm sure most people have tried Aussie products and know how great they are so I picked this 3 minute miracle deconstructor. I usually take the little sachets with me to save space.
