Wave your passport in the air if you’d rather be jetting off elsewhere. From Monaco to Mykonos and São Paulo to Seychelles, flights are being booked and holidays are being taken so you know what that means? Suitcases need to be packed. No, no, not with clothes or shoes but with our can’t-travel-without beauty essentials and summertime staples of course! Alright, perhaps you can sneak in an outfit or two…

the hydrate home and away set from DDG

Before you’ve added anything to your suitcase, drop in the EXCLUSIVE  Dr. Deniss Gross Home & Away Set. Featuring the bestselling Hyaluronic Marine Oil-Free Moisture Cushion (in a full size and cabin-bag approved mini), it’s your answer to a balanced, hydrated complexion — ready to take to the beach, bar and club… And when you do get back to your room, (we won’t ask what time…) the Alpha Beta AHA/BHA Daily Cleansing Gel will deeply clean skin by unclogging your pores while washing away dirt quickly and effectively. What’s more this must have set includes a pretty little pouch to keep everything in one place… 

When the day breaks, you’ll want the Morning Buzz Set from Sunday Riley in arm’s reach. Plumping your complexion and restoring its radiance, this bundle features the powerful CEO Brightening Serum to fight discolouration, the CEO Afterglow Gel Cream to boost hydration and the nutrient-rich CEO Glow for instant vibrance. Holiday skin? Sorted. 

a bottle of isle of paradise self tanning drops

Sunnies — check. Beach hat — check. A sun-soaked glow like no other? Ch-ch-check! First things first, is your suitcase anywhere near complete without the Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Drops? Our answer is no. Gone are the days of tanning faux pas and streak galore, instead customise your own glow with this totally vegan formula that’s powered by organic tanning actives such as avocado, chia seed and coconut oil. Every drop delivers a surge of hydration and transports your skin to a palm tree paradise where all tans are evenly colour-corrected, free from that tangy scent and orange residue. Go light, medium or dark and bask in this foolproof formula that’ll no doubt leave your skin reeling for more. Perhaps one or 12 more drops won’t hurt, eh?

On a scale of 1-10, how hard is it to resist Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Sun Drops? We’d say 11. Wherever you are in the world, you need an SPF and what better way to stay protected than with a vitamin-rich sun serum? Harnessing the nourishing power of beta-glucan and cassia extract, replenish and regenerate stronger skin cells that can bear the ay calor weather of a far away island. 

A winter must-have is no doubt still a summer staple — keep your pout (and any dry patch) kissable and soft with your Lanolips 101 Ointment. Brimming from the nozzle with an intensely nourishing blend of pure lanolin, your overnight bag is nowhere near complete without this cult-classic. Ciao chapped lips and flaky skin!

And there you have it! Your suitcase is ready to go and the next destination is holiday radiance
