THE IN-TRAY

Going somewhere? Here’s what beauty to pack for your summer getaway

HERE’S WHERE TO START WITH THAT HOLIDAY PACKING LIST: OUR VERY OWN LIST OF GETAWAY ESSENTIALS THAT DESERVE A SPOT IN YOUR OVERNIGHT BAG.

Aveda NutriPlenish™ Conditioner – Deep Moisture

From long, salty beach days to running your straightener through those strands before a night out at the local bar—your holiday hair needs to be able to keep up (and look good) while you’re making the most of your time away. Try this luxuriously hydrating conditioner from Aveda: it’ s infused with organic pomegranate oil to deeply replenish dry, depleted hair and is infused with aromas of cocoa, ginger, cardamom and other flower and plant essences.

Replica Beach Walk EDT

Go with the theme and wear this during your next beach getaway so it’ll always remind you of lazy days and warm nights by the ocean, even when you’re back home. It perfectly captures the carefree calmness and elation of a lazy summer's day spent by the beach (the one you’ve been dreaming about all year, bottled). Its scent blends notes of bergamot, pink pepper, coconut milk and lemon for a fresh, easy-to-wear scent.

Soap & Glory Call of Fruity Summer Scrubbin' Cooling Body Scrub

Glistening skin during golden hour (preferably while enjoying a refreshing beverage) starts with soft, exfoliated skin. This delicious tub of goodness from Soap & Glory contains naturally exfoliating coconut shell and pink jojoba exfoliator balls to help buff away dry skin. It’s the perfect way to scrub away the day’s sunscreen, sweat or oil—or even reset your body before applying your self-tan.

Sunday Riley Power Couple

Don’t let the skincare regime you perfected in lockdown disappear when you leave home for a road trip. Take this bestselling duo from Sunday Riley on the journey with you and you’ll enjoy a plump, smooth and refined complexion while you’re out seeing the sites. It contains a Good Genes Lactic Acid, which helps to exfoliate dead skin cells, and a Luna Sleeping oil, an evening retinol treatment which brightens and helps reduce redness. It’s called ‘power couple’ for a reason.

Dr Dennis Gross All-Physical Daily Defense UV Shield SPF50

Going on a little getaway during the summer break and not packing SPF is just not on—so, be sure to add this lightweight broad-spectrum sunscreen lotion to your packing list. This non-greasy sunscreen is suitable for all skin types including sensitive, and is formulated with entirely physical UV filters for chemical free UVA/UVB protection.

Editor's note: The Dr Dennis Gross All-Physical Daily Defense UV Shield SPF50 will be back in stock on Friday 18th of December.

RMS Signature Set

If you want to steer clear of over-packing in the makeup department, opt for a small, multi-use compact like this one from RMS. It provides easy-to-apply, melt-into-your skin formulas that can be applied on-the-go (read: with your fingers). You’ll have an illuminator, cheek, eye and lip balms in flattering hues to choose from in this tiny travel companion.

Drunk Elephant Firmy Kit

Drunk Elephant is giving you yet another reason to keep your skin in check over your holiday break. This set contains everything you need for skin that appears firmer, more hydrated and feels protected—no matter what the summer weather throws at you. Made to fit perfectly into your toiletries bag, it’s a kit worth trying for healthy holiday skin.

Mecca Cosmetica Superscreen Body

From floating down a river on a Lilo to laying out on the grass at a picnic at your local park—keeping your whole body protected should always be front of mind. Mecca Cosmetica’s high-performance SPF50 formula defends against UVA/UVB and free radicals and provides four hours water resistance sans an oily feel or white aftermath after application. It’s ideal for wear when outdoors or exercising—so pack it with your swimsuit and thank us later.
