After being stuck (and, at times, stuck) for nearly two years, we are finally allowed to spread our wings and once again explore the great, vast world.
You might think that a suitcase full of clothes perfect for lounging by the pool, or a set of flowing dresses made for spending the whole day shopping leaves little room for beauty essentials … but we’ve got the latest tweak. necessities that work overtime while you take time off.
The daily duo
While you may be on vacation, your skin isn’t, with travel often ravaging our faces. Come in: the perfect duo to keep your skin as fresh as you feel during a break.
Elizabeth Arden’s new fast-absorbing Ceramide Lift & Firm moisturizers have five times the ceramide * to retain moisture, lifting and firming the skin’s appearance in just a week **.
Use the fast-absorbing day cream gel in the morning to keep skin firm and tight on the go, and the night cream before bed to intensely hydrate as you recover your beauty sleep.
A selection of fresh fragrances
The fragrance is closely tied to memory, so create one that lasts forever with a new holiday-inspired fragrance.
If you’re not sure what mood your holiday can evoke, try Creed’s The Inspiration Set, which includes five sample fragrances from the brand’s best-sellers.
There is the fresh and fruity Aventus for Her, or the charming and flirtatious Spring Flower. For something a little more mysterious, sprinkle some Love in Black, with notes of black currant and hints of peppery clove and Florentine iris.
A paint for every trip
A trip away from home is the perfect time to experiment with your look… so why not try a new shade on your nails according to your mood?
OPI has introduced its first long-lasting vegan nail polish, based on plant-based ingredients (think sugarcane, wheat and potatoes) up to 75% of natural origin.
The Nature Strong collection features 30 nature-inspired shades, in shades like a coral pink petal perfect for a cocktail night in a vibrant city, or an ocean blue inspired by the calming effects of the sea for days when a stroll along the beach is the only place you want to be.
Plus, the formula performs better than ever, drying quickly for a brilliant finish that lasts up to seven days.
Travel time savings
Pamper your skin as you pamper your soul on a journey away with this travel multitasker. Small enough to slip into your carry-on, the Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask detoxifies and brightens in just 10 minutes, so it’s perfect for cooling your skin between a museum visit and a night out.
Powerful with ingredients like organic licorice and aloe vera, the four-in-one formula tightens pores, invigorates a dull complexion and instantly boosts radiance.
For A Little Bit Of Everything
Going on a last minute getaway? Or maybe you just want a purchase that does all the heavy lifting (by that we mean, packaging) for you?
The Little Bag Of Beauty features 19 luxury beauty swatches worth over $ 350 from some of the most coveted skincare, fragrance and makeup brands (think Versace, Benefit and Clarins), in travel sizes ready for boarding.
It covers you from head to toe, with roller scents, face masks, serums, body cleansers and more, all in a cute button-like case.
