Published 15/06/2011 | 14:54
With our summer holidays just around the corner we, at Independent Woman, are turning our attention to travel. As desperate as we are to get away, holidays can play havoc with skin. We hit the beauty aisles in search of a few beauty bag essentials.
Here are our favourites:
Eau Thermale by Vichy
Perfect for combating aeroplane air, Vichy's Eau Thermale is packed with 15 mineral salts to refresh and revive dried out skin. Dispensed as a super light mist, this thermal spa water works at cooling and hydating skin on the face and neck and the handy 50ml bottle means you'll breeze through airport security. Super soft, supple skin can be yours on landing.
Available from pharmacies nationwide, priced at €10.00.
Voya Balmelicious Lip Balm
Our lips often end up baring the brunt of dry air meaning a decent lip balm is a must. Voya's Balmelicious comes Soil Association certified and has been designed to heal, repair and hydrate. Packed with natural ingredients like organic seaweed extract, sweet almond, beeswax and wheat germ, not only is Balmelicious good for lips, it tastes pretty good as well!
Available from selected salons, priced at €12.
Yves Saint Laurent Touché Éclat
Perfect for pre landing touch-ups, Yves Saint Laurent Touché Éclat is something of a staple for adding a little radiance. Loaded with light relecting particles, the silicone enriched concealer works a treat under the eyes, lips or along the cheekbones and the clever packaging makes this a perfect travel companion. Available in six new shades, finding the perfect colour match shouldn't be a problem on the way home either.
Available from Brown Thomas, priced at €35.
Bliss Triple Oxygen Eye Mask
Ladies keen to avoid puffy peepers should enlist the help of Bliss Triple Oxygen Eye Mask. Instantly brightening, the treatment gets to work in just 15 minutes working to saturate eyes with cucumber extract and vitamin E. Individually packaged and travel friendly, lets hope the only bags you'll lose during your holiday will be the ones under your eyes!
Available from selected salons, priced at €50.
