My Florida Holiday Essentials

May 25, 2014

You may have noticed that my blog has been a bit neglected of late. I have been lacking some serious blog motivation and have also been in Florida on holiday for the past 3 weeks. I've come back with a renewed enthusiasm and am hoping to fill this little internet spot with lots of lovely posts!

I have had the best time in Florida; it was filled with my favourite people, sunshine and happiness and I wanted to stay out there forever. I may do a few posts sharing some of my photos but today I thought I'd show you some of the products that I couldn't have done without in the sunshine state.

Obviously suncream was a must while we were out there. I've become a fan of the higher factor suncreams and my favourite was the Neutrogena Beach Defence Sunscreen as it smells so lovely. It's not readily available in the UK so I bought a few while I was out there- but from a quick google you can buy it from a few websites including fishpond.co.uk which has free delivery (although I've not bought from there before so can't totally vouch for it).

I also very much enjoyed using a couple of Banana Boat products. We tried their Sport Performance spray suncream which was so convenient and easy to use- great for a day in the Disney parks where you want to spray and go. I don't think they are as efficient as a normal sunscreen as you do tend to waste some as you spray but it's just so handy! The Banana Boat Aloe Vera After Sun has also been a saviour to my skin at the end of each day and was definitely a holiday essential.

When I'm on holiday I like to use a refreshing shower gel and this offering from Organic Surge was perfect. Their Tropical Bergamot Shower Gel* contains sweet orange and bergamot essential oils, creating a lovely tropical scent that is great for holidays. It's a thick formula which feels moisturising and comes in a great big bottle too.

It's really important to protect your hair from the sun when on holiday and so the Charles Worthington Sunshine Protection shampoo was great. I like to buy minis to take out with me and then usually buy a full sized product when I'm there. My skin essentials whilst in Florida were the Yon Ka Paris Lotion* - strangely I can't find it on their website but it's basically a mist that tones and cools skin. So handy and easy to use when it's hot. The Liz Earle toning spritzer is a similar product that works just as well. 

And finally - the Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask. I used this a couple of times while I was away to inject some moisture into my skin. You apply the mask and then leave for 10 minutes before rinsing off - it's a lovely creamy formula that smells gorgeous and delivers a big helping of hydration.

  1. Some great holiday essentials, I think too often than not people forget the basic things for going away like a good spf, moisturiser etc. I think if I forgot some of those essentials I would be feeling grim so I have no idea how people manage to go without. x
