Wondering what to pack on your holiday is a question on most of our minds, seriously first world problems!
With limited weight and space in your suitcase you want to be making the most out of your packing.
In this short article we give you some inspiration on some of our ride or die products which continuously make their way into our suitcase each year, along with our favourite Salty Bottom bikini's!
Product 1 - NUXE Paris Huile Prodigieuse
(Face, Body and Hair Multi-Purpose Oil)
Okay so this was a duty free purchase a few years back and we haven't look back since. This summer staple comes out for 6 months of the year with no doubt.
Firstly, the fragrance of this oil gives you a luxury, fresh and clean smell (hard to describe). It makes you feel expensive just wearing it!
The product itself is so versatile. You can use the oil in your hair and body/face. Therefore doubling up as 2 products in one. Making it a great addition to the suitcase as it is space savvy.
We primarily use this product as an evening body oil on the legs. It gives you a very sexy finish showing off that new holiday glow without being too greasy. It is fantastic at elongating the legs.
Product 2 - Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess
(Shimmering Dry Body Oil)
This product is an oldie but an absolute goldie. It does not disappoint on delivering the ultimate shimmery tan enhancing glow.
It is a different consistency than the above body oil as it has illuminating shimmer within the bottle. If you are seeking collar bones and shoulders with a beautifully natural dusting of shimmer than using this product lightly will give you a golden glow as opposed to some of the white illuminating products out there meaning that it tends to photograph very well.
If you want extra glow on your legs than you can double up the above product and a very small amount of Cocoa Brown oil on the tops of your shins to give you a true golden goddess vibe.
Product 3 - Bali Body Watermelon Tanning Oil
Designed to give you a deep golden natural tan whilst hydrating your skin by naturally enhancing your melanin. It really does live up to its 5* reviews.
The SPF is only 15 so we recommend this product with serious caution. Depending on your skin type you need to consider if this offers you the protection you desire.
The product makes for a great SPF towards the end of your holiday when your skin has adjusted to the sun and climate.
Product 4 - Hawaiian Tropic Sun Lotion
Our favourite summer essential is the Hawaiian Tropic Sun Lotion. As soon as you open this beauty the smell of coconuts in the summer comes rushing back to you.
Available in a number of SPF versions we tend to opt for SPF30 to start off our holiday.
We particularly love this sun lotion because once applied you do not feel overly greasy and oily which can be the case for many high street cheaper alternatives. It leaves a light moisturising finish and keeps you well protected from the sun if used correctly.
Product 5 - Clean Reserve Eau De Parfum
A tough one to reveal. We came across Clean Reserve on a trip to Miami a couple of years back and have been obsessed ever since.
We had to share our secret obsession with this brand to our community as the benefits of this perfume will have you keep coming back for more.
Solar Bloom is a floral fragrance for women and men, because it is unisex it has an amazing masculine smell but with citrus and woody scents to keep it feminine at the same time.
Give it a try and I am sure you will you be converted just like we were in the middle of Sephora!

The question on most of our minds. When do I book my summer holiday overseas to get the best price?
After spending a number of years testing when the best time to book a summer holiday abroad is and pondering on the thoughts of a last minute bargain or booking months in advance here is what we personally found.
