My Holiday Essentials | Beauty

A couple of weeks ago I headed off on my family holiday to Haven at Caister on Sea near Great Yarmouth, a destination that has been a family favourite since I was a child. Here are the holiday essentials I packed to ensure I kept my beauty regime right on track.

NSPA Hot Cloth Polish
I've been using NSPA's hot cloth polish on and off for some time now, although recently it's become my go-to cleanser since running out of my favourite Olive Oil cleanser I bought in China. I believe lots of bloggers have likened this as a dupe to the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish however, I've never used this product so cannot comment. I absolutely adore the NSPA version though, retailing at £7 at ASDA, or you can occasionally pick it up on their two for £8, I find this such a bargain. This product is a creamy cleanser that contains cocoa butter, almond oil, vitamin E, avocado, apricot and neroli oils. This cleanser can definitely can remove the most pigmented eyeliners and leave your skin feeling hydrated.

'I Love...' Mango and Papaya Shower Creme* and Body Spritzer*
You may have seen my review of the Peachy Passionfruit fragrance of the 'I Love...' body creme and body spritzer before, so you can see how much I already love their products. They are now making travel sized products, so I had to bring these with me. They are the perfect size for going away, I know I'll be stocking up on these beauties nowadays. They are soon to be available at Primark so definitely head off there for your travel essentials!

Garnier Fructis Oil Repair 3 Shampoo and Conditioner
I won't mention a lot about these products as I don't think you can buy them in the UK unless they may occasionally have them in Poundland or stores like Home Bargains and B&M. I bought these originally when I was in Munich last year and loved them that much that the hubby has brought them back in bulk for me. They work wonderfully with my bleach damaged and dry hair due to their miracle and essential oils. If you see any, I would definitely recommend giving them a go as they only cost a couple of quid and work as well as some of their more expensive counterparts here in the UK.

EOS Lip Balm
I'm such a fan of EOS lip balms and have already gone through three of these since discovering them a couple of years ago. This particular one is honeysuckle honeydew flavour and is so delicious, it just tastes like honeydew melon! I also picked up a matching hand cream whilst in a store in China. I currently have a raspberry and pomegranate on the go too, and definitely need to invest in a couple more. These are essential when hitting up the beaches, especially if there is a strong wind around!

My Little Beauty Masque Reparateur (conditioning hair mask)
This conditioning hair mask is from a My Little Beauty box I received a while back (I've only just had a good sort through of all the products, oops!). I decided to take this with me as a little extra protection after I went swimming as chlorine not only likes to make beautiful platinum hair green but can play havoc with it's condition too. I applied this straight after a shower in the swimming pool and left it on until I got back for added nourishment.
