Summer weekend getaways are the best! But what do we bring when it comes to skin care and beauty? Our favourites change every year.
Weekend Essentials For the perfect summer getaway!
We know there are always essentials we can't do without - here are our some of our favourites!
Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil Pai Skincare This cleansing oil is not only ideal for removing makeup from your skin, it's also great at removing all traces of sunscreen – even water-repellent ones. We love this product because its texture makes the application process feel more like a soothing massage... In sum this cleansing oil will leave your skin clean, moisturized and without any oily residue. A must-have!
Hydrating Floral Essence Tata Harper A light moisturizing toner spray that deeply hydrates the skin and gives the complexion a fresh, dewy radiance; contains no alcohols or harsh astringents. Perfect for everyday use on top of makeup as an anti-aging treatment on-the-go. Contains natural Hyaluronic Acid to preserve the skin's natural hydration factor.
Sheer Tint Eye Triple Complex Broad Spectrum SPF30 PCA SKIN The area surrounding your eyes is often more susceptible to the effects of aging, because this region tends to be more sensitive overall. That's why protecting it is crucial. This product contains protective ingredients and peptides that act as aging-inhibitors; and what's more, it adds a light tint that faintly lightens the contour of the eyes!
Le White Toothpaste LEBON LEBON toothpaste has this "je-ne-sais-quoi" that never ceases to amaze us... Whether it's the colours, the textures, or the different flavours, LEBON is quite simply unique. Brushing your teeth will never be the same!
Lip Treat NUORI We all know that the sun, wind and fluctuating temperatures can dry-out your skin...and your lips. Lip balm is your greatest ally for these types of situations. Nuori's sweet almond and apricot oils work in concert with avocado, shea and cocoa butter in order to nourish and soften dehydrated lips. Japanese berry extracts and beeswax also act as moisture retainers, and work to protect your lips at all costs.
Illuminator Summertime ILIA BEAUTY We know that for most people, strutting a sophisticated makeup-do isn't a feasible look everyday – especially not on vacation. That's why we'd rather be showcasing a more natural (and low-maintenance) look on our trip, with the subtlety of cream blushes that will give you a luminous touch; a subtle tan. ILIA Beauty's multi-sticksare among our favourites because they allow us to add a hint of radiance to the cheeks, eyes and lips; so we can go from beach day to dinner out in no time!
Active Botanical Serum VINTNER'S DAUGHTER This serum contains 22 botanical assets combined with powerful essential oils. This botanical serum oil is renown for revitalizing your skin. We wear it morning and evening! This truly is the only product your skin needs... and it's perfect for traveling light.
Atlantis Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner R+CO Sun, sea salt and daily washes can dry-out your hair. That's why our go-to is R+CO's ATLANTIS shampoo and conditioner duo. This hair-duo will rehydrate your hair back to life, giving it back that healthy shine.
Hydration Detangler + UV Barrier RAHUA This ultra-concentrated new Hydration Detangler + UV Barrier is the cure to dryness: its intense moisturizing formula softens your hair, smoothes out frizzes and protects fragile and dehydrated hair from breakage. In addition, thanks to its photoprotective action, the hydration detangler creates an anti-UV barrier over your hair, which is essential for protecting coloured hair from the effects of the sun.
Total Defense + Repair SPF 34 SKINMEDICA It goes without saying that no beach vacay would be complete without sunscreen. As a final step to our morning routine, we apply sunscreen to exposed areas, and then reapply some more throughout the day!
