I’ve recently returned from holiday and wanted to share with you my holiday hero beauty products!
If I was to rank these products in order, then I might be bold enough to say this would claim the top spot. I found myself using this daily (well, nightly!) to help keep my hair in good condition.
I ordered this with the points I get each month from on line natural beauty retailer LoveLula. When I saw the 50ml pot, I was a little worried that it would not last very long. However, I was wrong. It was the perfect amount for my three week holiday (I will add, I don’t have long hair).
I used this after washing and conditioning with my Green People Scent Free shampoo and conditioner. It has a very thick consistency which I spread on to the mid lengths and ends of my hair, before tying my hair back.
Although it is suggested to wash this out, I didn’t. I preferred to leave it in. Rightly or wrongly, I felt it help protect my hair the next day in the sun. My hair looked fine with it left in too.
I would like to continue to use this now I’m home, but perhaps on a weekly basis. I’ve already got one waiting in my shopping basket.
Continuing with the mask theme, I used this Multi-Tasking Cream from one of my favourite brands Terre Verdi as an overnight mask. The ‘cream’ is actually in quite a hard balm texture which I warm between my hands before massaging over my face. Made with 99% organic ingredients, my skin loves this.
Although this does leave quite an oily residue when first applied (and probably transfers to pillows!), my skin feels really well nourished when I wake in the morning. This also works well as a cleanser and to moisturise any dry bits.
This was a bit of a last minute buy, but something I used almost until the end. I really dislike the strong smell of both regular and more natural mosquito sprays. I was, therefore, really pleased when I discovered this worked well at keeping the mosquitoes at bay, without the smell. In fact, I rather liked the scent.
I used this both during the day and the evening only picking up a couple of small bites throughout the holiday. I’d definitely buy this again.
Hmm, perhaps this should take the number one spot! I’ll not go into detail about this as I’ve written a blog post which you can read here,
I would 100% recommend this and will not be going on holiday without it again.
