Instead of the more traditional 12 days of Christmas, I’ve decided to wrap up 12 DAYS OF BEAUTY fit for any lover of poolside partying and beach basking.
Each day – as I lie back in my temporary office/sun lounger – I will reveal a new beaut from my bag of loot…. Keep checking the post to see my hot list unfurl.
Day 1: New Piz BUIN Wet Skin – Protection on wet or dry skin – £17.99
What makes it great: No need to wait until you’re dry to apply sun protection ever again.
Day 2: Juicing Detox Programme @thirtyeightdegressnorth in Ibiza
What makes it great: healthy by day and party by night with a pure, juice conscience!
Day 3: Yarok’s Feed Your Sunshine hair serum (from A Beautiful World)
What makes it great: this organic aloe vera and black current seed oil fights the harsh pool chemicals and damaging effects of the powerful sun.
Day 4: China Glaze nail polish (neon if possible)
What makes it great: neon-loving. non-chip. nail-strengthening. eye-gazing.
Day 5: Michel Mercier ‘Untangle Your Day’ hair brush £12.99
What makes it great: glides easily through sandy, salty, chlorinated hair, massaging the scalp at the same time.
Day 6: Docteur Renaud Peach Body Dry Oil £29.50
What makes it great: a non-sickly peach-scented hydrating oil which soaks in VERY quickly, prolongs your tan and gives your skin a glam sheen.
Day 7: Zap It! £5.95
What makes it great: this tiny zap device takes the itch away from all those pesky mosquito bites. (it also works on jelly fish stings but we haven’t had any of those yet to try it on)
Day 8: Great Lengths Serum Hair Fluid £12 (available at local salons)
What makes it great: no grease and lots of shine. Oh and no need for hair extensions either. Hurrah for tiger nut oil…
Day 9: Green People Sun & Sports shampoo and conditioner (£9.99 each)
What makes it great: the organic avocado, artichoke, jojoba and plant protein provide natural UV repair hair while also naturally washing away the salt and chlorine.
Day 10: BioEffect EGF Serum (£125)
What makes it great: EGF is THE newest magic potion in skincare. Just one drop of this twice a day can honestly turn back the clock. It speeds up the rate that the cells renew themselves, reduces pigmentation and stimulates collagen. WOW!
Day 11: Tili Bags (£6.50 for pack of 12)
What makes them great: my constantly over-flowing wash bag is no longer as issue: pretty zip lock bags mean that all my cosmetics are organised both home and away.
Day 12: Konjac puff sponge (£6.98 from Cult Beauty)
What makes it great: made entirely from the root of the the Konjac Potato, this is a naturally moisture rich plant fibre sponge that balances the acidity of the skins impurities and oils (face and body)
