My Holiday Skincare Essentials

Holiday skincare essentials
Hey everyone! I hope you enjoyed yesterday's post (holiday-friendly makeup & 4 tips) Today it's all about the skincare because let's face it, we all know how important it is to look after your skin, ESPECIALLY when you are on holiday. We are bombarded every single summer about the risks of not looking after your skin properly so I wouldn't head away without these products!

1. The Suncream

Garnier ambre solaire suncream review

Yes, my paleness means that I have to wear factor 30, I have given up trying to tan because it's not going to happen! My skin can be one of two shade: snow or lobster and speaking from experience, lobster is NOT fun! I like to fake the bake rather than to err.... bake? 
Suncreams can be so sticky in texture which make you feel all hot and bothered but as past few years I have been buying this particular one from Garnier. The spray and mist application makes it so much easier to put on, it's not as greasy on the skin and dries in very quickly. No matter which brand you use just make sure you buy the right factor for your skin, it's better to be safe than sorry!

2. The After Sun

Garnier Ambre Solaire Aloe Vera Aftersun review
I just the smell and feel of after-sun on my skin, I could buy it all year round and just use it as a daily moisturiser! I purchased a great one from QVC last year, it was from the award-winning Ultrasun collection and although pricey, I don't think I'll ever find another  moisturiser like it! I haven't tried the 'Ambre Solaire After Sun Gel with Aloe' from Garnier yet but I have high expectations, I hate how the sun makes my skin feel so tight, I will apply this every night when I am holiday to keep my skin cool and moisturised.

3. The Toner and Moisturiser

I am a HUGE fan of Simple, I think I have bought each of their products about 56473829 times (especially the wipes, a good I spend so much money on these!) I have super sensitive skin so I like how they don't use any perfumes or colorants listed in any of their ingredients. The Simple toner gives my face a healthy glow and it makes my it feel so fresh and super clean. I don't wear a lot of makeup on holiday and I use this to take it off at night. For only £2.99 it's a winner and i'l definitely be packing it in my holiday suitcase.

The key with this moisturiser from Simple is that it's LIGHT. Yes that's right, no sticky skin on holiday! I can apply the 'Simple Kin To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser' to my face and literally put my makeup on 2 minutes later. The sun would make my forehead feel particularly tight, this just relieves that horrid feeling straight away. At only £3.99 at Boots it is a definite re-purchase and what makes it even better, they have their 3 for 2 offer on!
