Hello hello hello! Another beachy post from me today but blended with some incredible new beauty bits! I love travelling and I love beauty products so it was only natural I'd get super excited to write this. I love nothing more than talking to you about my favourite products, products I genuinely use and love which is why I decided to take my camera and actually photograph what I'm using whilst I'm away! As most of you know if you follow me on social media, I recently headed off to Spain, prepped and ready to go. I wanted to share with you a few more of my holiday/beachy essentials and a particular special little tool, perfect for smooth summer legs, courtesy of Wilkinson Sword. I've done a lot recently about smooth holiday skin, getting that holiday glow and holiday essential items but hey, if you can't write about it in summer, when can you? It's definitely my favourite topic. I feel fortunate that I am able to travel so much so am always on the lookout for the best new products to take with me, then I can share them with you guys! Let's see what made it onto this trip with me and talk about my new favourite tool!
The amazing team at Wilkinson Sword kindly sent me some bits when they heard I was going to Spain, including these beautiful Quay sunglasses (I've always wanted a pair!), a stunning coral Chanel nail varnish (coral is the best for making the tan pop on holiday!), my FAVE (which I needed stocking up on so thanks guys!) Hawaiian tropic sun cream - I love it because it hydrates my skin but protects it at the same time, a beautiful, round beach towel (I've always wanted one!) it's thick, beautiful and dreamy. I'm going to the Maldives in September and will make sure I've got room for it in my case! I also received a beach bag to ram it all into (perfect) and their latest Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk Bikini which I've wanted to try out for so long. I'm obsessed with having the smoothest legs possible so this made my day.
Naturally, I packed some more faves. I feel like a bit of a pro with travelling now and always cram my bag full of beauty things - Eye Treat for eye puffiness because late nights and early mornings when I'm away make me look like I've never slept! Skynn Iceland cooling gels which are my favourite for flights, you look a bit crazy but you'll be the one laughing when you walk off the flight with the most perfect skin. The best way to fake 10 hours sleep. Finally, my favourite new find, Bakel Suncare. I Snapchatted this a lot whilst I was away but it's 100% natural and you apply it before suncream to make your tan more intense.
Hair wise, Redken's Pillow Proof came with me (the perfect blow dry primer) and Aveda Damage Remedy, I'm obsessed with Aveda products at the moment and it's so important to take care of your hair in hot climates so I leave this on all over my hair before showering on an evening abroad!
For evenings abroad, my new Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look palette came with me. Every girl needs this for travel, it honestly has everything you need in it: bronze, blush, highlighter and eye shadows. I don't think I'll ever stray from this. Si, Armani's stunning fragrance but this one comes out in the most beautiful glass bottle. I put it on my hair when I'm on holiday so the scent stays on longer. YSL's new lipgloss because who doesn't want a beautiful nude lip whilst away? I also pack my Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk Biki so I can ensure I'm silky smooth for the duration of my holiday. Having silky, soft legs is my favourite thing and makes me feel more confident in what I'm wearing.
I've got loads more travel posts coming up, but today, I wanted to take you to this beautiful cliff with me and give you a little insight into my new tool for smoothness everywhere!
It's double ended which is seriously cool (and battery powered too) so it shaves, trims, shapes and hydrates all in one tool. I'm all for celebrating curves too and the Hydro Silk Bikini glides naturally over women's curves with it;s five curve-sensing blades. I feel like this was made for summer and there was no way this wasn't coming in my travel bag with me!
And this photo shows you a very happy Em with her new sunglasses!
Spain is beautiful and just like Cyprus, completely underrated.
After topping up my cream (I've become obsessed with suncream, recently I've become really aware of how dangerous the sun is so I'm trying to really re-apply and only wear higher factors) so I used my factor 30 Terracotta Sun Protect by one of my favourite brands ever, Guerlain to start the trip off. This boosts your tan anyway as it has tan accelerator in it so I didn't feel too bad about applying factor 30 (I'm usually a factor 8 gal!) so the tanning process was a bit slower but at least I was looking after my skin.
Sun cream applied, it was time to put on this lovely yellow number as a cover up. It's actually a beautiful silky playsuit which looks great in the evening but I couldn't resist whacking it on over my bikini! You can get it online here.
Am I in love with the Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk Bikini? Yes. Particularly because getting the smoothest legs possible is one of my favourite things. Am I in love with all these products? Completely. The absolute dream team!
Are you going away anywhere this Summer? Have you visited Mallorca? Do you like these outfits? What are your beauty essentials on the beach? Have you used the new Wilkinson Sword?
