Nothing for me beats island therapy and it is no secret that my love affair with Fiji has been a long and enduring one. I’ll fess up to enjoying the odd fling or two with another island but it is to my favourite tropical paradise that I am returning for a week of Fiji time. Balmy waters, coconut scented delights and cocktails at sunset all cry out for a laid-back beauty approach. So this time the trusty ol toolbox is staying at home and pared-down packing and I have just become friends.
My Island Beauty Edit…
Nivea Sunlight Feel Every Day Sun lotion – will be slathering this all over, with it’s featherweight texture and light glow effect, this SPF30 will be my beach-bag staple.
Nivea After-Sun – after a day of sun and sea your limbs will thank you. Apply generously!!
Trilogy Rosehip Oil – my everything oil – can be trusted to do duty as a night cream, hair oil and general all-round soother for sun-scorched skin.
Clarins Eye Revive Beauty Flash – a peepers best friend – great as an all-nighter and even better as a morning after brightener.
Ellie Saab Le Parfum – the perfect island companion, this jasmine/orange blossom delight packs a punch while still being deliciously feminine. Just been voted Harpers Bazaar Best Day Scent.
Dermalogica Ultra-Sensitive Face Suncreen – with Titanium Dioxide, Vitamins A,C and E, Grapeseed and Green Tea , it calms, covers and protects like no other.
Face Wipes – for those nights when you want to stay out late or just fall into bed, this hero product is the party-gals best friend. Two swipes and sweet dreams!!
Strobe Cream – perfect on it’s own and even better under foundation, MAC’s best-selling glam moisturiser is chock full of antioxidants and can take skin from dull to radiant in a second.
Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Foundation – would love to embrace bare-face but this is my holy grail all-time fav product. The perfect cover-up on a blaah skin-day and by far the closest thing I have ever got to having perfect skin. Can’t leave home without it!!!!!
Sneaking in another Armani goodie, Fluid Sheer No. 3 does it all – highlights, bronzes and fakes a golden glow worthy of an A-lister.
Lippie – Just purchased Rouge in Love 159B – although a little bolder than I would normally wear (it’s Emma Watsons fav) it’s rumoured to stay on the lips and off the glass. This could be my latest obsesssion.
Spa Paradiser Sweet Coconut Lip Butter – a Pina Colada in a balm. Smelling of the sweetest coconut, a dab of this in flight takes me one step closer to paradise. Loloma Fiji.
