Last Minute Holiday Shop!

Hi beauty babes. First of all I just want to apologise for my continuing lack of blog posts, I know I brought this up in a not so long ago previous post, but I honestly don't know whats gone on. I've just been majorly busy. It is my mission though this week to try and get a few posts up for you lovelies before I leave for Turkey this Sunday. 

Sadly I haven't had the time to get any scheduled posts up whilst I'm away, but I am determined to get my blogging mojo back when I return. However I do want to get a 'Whats In My Travel Bag' post up and just a general 'Travel Post' up for you all. I know I'm cutting things a bit short with only a few sleeps left to go, but I am pretty confident that I can get these posts up.

So ramble over! Today's post I just have a few little last minute bits and bobs that I picked up for my holiday, they are not on the top of the list essentials but they are essentials non the less and I defiantly think that they will be lovely products to use whilst I'm away.

First up, two amazing products from Aussie which I know will most defiantly rescue my hair from the sun and sea whilst I'm away. I picked up Aussie's Three Minute Miracle hair treatment (left)  and the Aussie Luscious Long Leave-In Conditioner (right). 

As you beauties know I am a huge fan of Aussie and I know that I can trust these two products to put all the moisture back into my hair after days lounging on the beach. Aussie's Three Minute Miracle treatments have always been my go-to leave in conditioner, however I've never tried the one from the 'Take The Heat' range. Even though I don't intend on using any heat styling products while I'm away, my hair will be exposed to the sun daily, so I thought this one would be perfect.

The Aussie Luscious Long Leave In Conditioner is by far my most favourite Aussie haircare product. I'm now on my fourth bottle and I can not imagine not using this on my hair. It is by far the best de-tangler I've ever used and anyone else who has long hair knows how easily tangled it is, especially when you've been in water! So this will defiantly be packed in my beach bag.

Next up was The Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Body Butter. This was half price at Boots which was around £6.00 and it smells absolutely amazing. I've always been a fan of Hawaiian Tropic Products for holidays as they usually feel lovely on your skin and actually work. 

Hawaiian Tropic had a few after sun body butters to choose from, and after doing the much needed smell test on them all, I opted for the one that came in Lime Coolada. When you smell this is you really get a whiff of a true holiday smell, its yummy. As the name suggests it has a strong smell of lime, but there is also a coconut, mango smell which has been infused in there too. 

The body butter has a Cocoa and Shea butter formula, so its super thick and creamy and feels very indulgent and I can only imagine that it will be very cooling on skin that has been exposed to the sun all day.

The last thing thing that I picked up is something that I know I will get a lot of use out of and this is the little tube of Banana Boat Aloe Vera Sunscreen Lip Balm with SPF30. 

I remember the last sunbathing sort of holiday I went on and I compeltely forgot to protect my lips with a lip balm that prevents sunburn and protects the lips from UV Rays, I wasconstantly borrowing my friends which I know she found annoying. So this time round I've come prepared! 

Banana Boat products are another sun care product that I've used in the past so I'm trusting that this lip balm will keep my lips looking luscious, smooth and sunburn free!

So that's everything picked up beauties. What I plan on doing is doing an in-depth product review post on all the sun care products I've bought for my holiday so I can share with you how well I found them to be. I know when I was choosing that there was so much choice and I really didn't know where to start. 

If there are any requests you may have, just let me know and I will be sure to get the post up super quick for you!

Take care lovelies

Montagne Jeunesse | Travel Pamper Pack

Hi Beauties! Is that time of the year where many of us start to look forward to holiday's abroad, short weekends away, mini breaks and social gatherings outside, especially when the sun comes out to play!  No matter how we choose to spend our time this summer, one thing guaranteed is that we all need to spoil ourselves to a little pamper. 

I was very kindly sent out the Travel Pamper Pack from Montagne Jeunese which contains six treats for your hair, face, feet and body. The prefect pamper pack for all your beauty needs! 

I for one love a beauty pick me up, whether it be a deep conditioning treatment for my hair or a cleansing face mask and just because your on the go doesn't mean you should have to be without. 

The Montagne Jeunesse Travel Pamper Pack Contains:

1 x Passion Peel Off Masque

1 x Skin Smoother 

2 x Body Wash

1 x Foot Cooler 

1 x Intensive Spa Hair Masque 

As you can see Montagne Jeunesse have carefully considered all the essential treatments you would need to treat yourself to whilst being away, placing all the miniature sachets in  a disposable miniature folder that would fit perfectly into any luggage. (Isn't everything always much cuter in miniature form!) 

Here is what Montagne Jeunesse have to say about the Travel Pamper Pack:

Treat yourself on the go naturally! Whether you're jetting off for a weekend city break, a hen night abroad or a last minute get away, this is the ultimate little pampering luxury  that fits cosily in your hand luggage. 

An infusion of natural goodies, packed full of the most invigorating and refreshing ingredients for a perfect top to toe pamper treat. 

For me Montagne Jeunesse couldn't have sent this at a better time, as a lot of you know I am flying out to Turkey in a weeks time so this will be the perfect time to test out this travel pamper pack for you beauties. I can really see myself getting good use out of all the treatments included, especially the Intensive Spa Hair Masque. 

If your as excited as me about the Travel Pamper Pack, you can purchase all six treatments for £5.00 from the Montagne Jeunesse website which you can find here. As with all Montagne Jeunesse products, all the treatments available in this pack are suitable for vegetarians and Montagne Jeunesse always look to use natural ingredients for us natural beauties.

Keep posted as I will be sure to get mini reviews up of each treatment whilst I'm away on holiday and I can let you all know the benefits from the Travel Pack. 

Lots of Love
