Whether you are going to go on vacation or coming back from your dream destination, we found the products for you to take with you in your beauty pouch that have maximum effect and some can be also used in several ways, so you save space in your luggage. Use them already at home to arrive well prepared or finish them at home, they will help you keep the glow as long as possible.
Here is our beauty shopping list for your vacation pouch
TOM FORD ORCHID SOLEIL DE PARFUM
This summer version of the Tom Ford classic BLACK ORCHID immediately gets you in a holiday mood. Patchouli, chestnut, vanilla and Tuberrose are also perfect scents to take with you into the autumn season, and remember: scents are perfect to bring back good memories.
TIP: Spray tissue paper for packing your suitcase with this scent and your clothes will take on the perfume while travelling. It also releases gives a great odor when unpacking in your hotel and makes you feel at home right away.
THE SOLEIL DE LA MER COLLECTION/THE FACE & BODY GRADUAL TAN
The tanning products by La Mer are loaded with such rich ingredients with all the energy from the sea that you can easily leave your daily moisturizer at home. We recommend using the FACE & BODY GRADUAL TAN Auto tan lotion a week before you go on holidays to arrive already with a golden tan.
TIP: Use up the rest of the self-tanning lotion until winter on your face. We recommend to use it selectively on the height of your cheeks, forehead, chin and décolletee like a rouge for a perfect glow.
CLARINS GOMMAGE TONIC CORPS
Before and during your holidays we recommend a body peeling every other day. That way, your skin is well prepared for a perfect sun tan. Clarins body scrubs with essential oils make the after-sun shower perfectly calming for you skin.
TIP: Use it also as a lip scrub for well nourished lips after sunbathing.
CLARINS HUILE TONIC
Works perfectly in the shower as a anti-cellulite product and should be used before and during vacationing. We use it also on our dry elbows, feet and knees overnight for smooth, silky skin.
TIP: When you have a massage at the beach, give your masseuse the Huile Tonic and let her do the massage with it, afterwards take a swim in the sea to rinse it off. We promise it will be double effective.
BIOTHERM AQUA-GELEE ULTRA FRESH BODY REPLENISHER
This is super cool on a hot day after the beach. We also use it as a make-up remover on our eyes during the holidays so the big jar has a double reason to come along.
TIP: After the holidays place the Aqua-Gelee in your refrigerator and use it as a mask on your face against puffiness in the morning.
ESTÉE LAUDER ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR INTENSIVE RECOVERY AMPOULES
These ampoules are perfect to use two weeks before you go on holiday so your skin is perfectly nourished and well prepared for the sun. Take a few ampoules with you so whenever you feel sunburned or have stressed skin you can use it at night.
TIP: We recommend to take these little ampoules which are actually small as capsules with you whenever you travel. Use them on a plane before landing or pat them with your finger tips under your eyes after a long night and an instant, fresh good morning gaze.
REVE DE SENSUALITE by NANA M. GRASSE
This perfume represents for me all the best memories of a perfect summer holiday at the Cote d’Azur. The flacon and everything that’s in it is organically handmade in Grasse and the beautiful glass makes a perfect vase once the perfume is finished. Simply pretty!
TIP: Regional perfumes are our latest obsession, (see post “A Fragrant Journey“) as they are almost scented travel stories and are unique presents to bring home for your friends.
