DERMALOGICA 

Lip Renewal Complex

£24.40

Used this product constantly on holidays and fell in love with it. I am prone to dry, chapped lips and out breaks of cold sores (delightful I know) but it is the normal for me especially on holiday. But this year thanks to this great lip product from Dermalogica – there wasn’t even a hint of a cold sore. Result!

I love it so much I’m still using it and the results are visible within a couple of days of use.

It’s quite brilliant.

Vitamin-rich emollients Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Avocado, and Wheat Germ smooth and condition to help prevent dehydration. Contains an exclusive peptide that helps prevent the formation of skin-aging AGEs. Palmitoyl Oligopeptide conditions while helping to stimulate collagen formation and minimise fine lines.

ELEMIS

Musclease Active Body Oil

£33

www.timetospa.co.uk

Another holiday favourite I have to share with you has to be this fabulous body oil from Elemis.

Officially Musclease Active Body Oil is perfect as part of a fitness programme this synergy of maritime pine, sea buckthorn, sea fennel and rosemary essential oil helps ease muscle pain and stressed joints, but I used it almost daily as a brilliant ‘pick-me-up’ for my body. It’s like having your own personal masseur in a bottle.

It smells great and in next to no time that tired, achy feeling we all get from time to time is gone.

Honestly a great buy and one you’ll be hooked on instantly.

 

MOLTON BROWN

Blissful Temple Tree Bath & Shower Gel

£18

www.moltonbrown.co.uk

And my final post holiday recommendation is this brilliant (recently re-branded) shower and bath gel. I only ever buy this particular shower gel – although our house is a a mecca to MB products – when we go on holiday.

There is something about the dreamy scent that will forever remind me of distant shores, faraway places and happy times. It has that sort of power.

It’s blended with Laotian templetree flower, patchouli and jasmine aroma and offers  gentle body-cleansing full of sunny vibes leaving you with exotically scented skin.

Honestly if I could have this as an air freshener I’d use it every day just to bring a smile to my face.
