Beauty Travel Essentials for A Summer Vacation
30th OF July 2012
There's a fine line between packing too much and too little on your summer vacation - especially when it comes to beauty! Take a look inside our beauty bag for a range of essentials that will have you covered from head to toe!
Aveda Damage Collection is fantastic on the road. Good for coloured hair and exposure to sun, surf and wind. We love the leave in conditioner in this range. A good trim, deep conditioning treatment and refreshed colour before you take off will also mean hair looks great in your holiday snaps. Forget the styling tools. Instead pack some great scarves and a selection of Scunci hair accessories (elastics, clips and bun makers) and have fun with new looks.
Aveda Damage Daily Hair Repair Treatment $49.95 available nationally across Australia and New Zealand. For stockist details please call 1300 300 054.
Scunci Bun Maker and Big Hair $9.95 each available from Big W, Target, Priceline as well as selected pharmacies and salons.
If you don't want to take the whole boudoir with you, ask your favorite brand for samples or deluxe travel sizes. We are taking our La Prairie Platinum Rare samples and a travel size cleanser from a gift with purchase as they make for perfect travel companions. A good facial before take off will also boost hydration levels. We love Pevonia for their hydrating, plumping and collagen boosting facials. Don't forget their Lumafirm Freeze Dried At Home Intensifier (pictured) which will prolong the length of your facial. Can't make time for a facial? Dr Lewinn's Line Smoothing Complex Mask is the closest thing we've found to a spa treatment at home. Quite simply a life saver!
La Prairie Cellular Serum Platinum Rare $980 available from Selected David Jones and beauty salons nationally
Pevonia Bontanica Lumafirm Lift & Glow in-spa facial $170 - $225 Selected beauty salons, spas and medispas nation-wide,
and Lumafirm Freeze Dried At Home Intensifier $55 and can be purchased online
Dr LeWinn's Line Smoothing Complex High Potency Treatment Mask $79.95 please call 1800 630 056 for stockists
Forget manicures that chip. Before your flight get yourself an OPI Gel mani and pedi guaranteeds not to chip, fade or peel for at least two weeks. We usually get 3 good weeks from ours. If you want to go natural, you can't go past Revitanail as a triple benefit strengthner, base and top coat in one. Use your vacation to get great nails with this at home nail miracle worker.
OPI is available in leading beauty salons and David Jones stores Australia wide. The price of an OPI Gel manicure will depend on the salon.
Revitanail $14.95 Myer, David Jones, Priceline, Priceline pharmacies and leading pharmacies nationally
It's all about fake tan and sun protection. Jet Set Tan by Invizible Zinc is a trusty favorite for the excellent colour and easy application. For sun protection, we are crazy about Reef Dry Oil with spf 30- It just smells like a dream holiday. If you are slipping from boots to sandals, don't forget to treat your feet 3 weeks ahead of your vacation to some TLC and a commitment to re-hydrate. Still the very gold standard in foot creams is the Aveda foot balm. Smells amazing, feels amazing and makes your toes sandal worthy. Palmers Cocoa Butter lotions or body butters are a firm favourite to keep your body soft and supple.
Jet Set Tan by Invizible Zinc $24.95 David Jones, Myer, Priceline, Terry White and all good pharmacies nationally.
Reef Dry Oil with spf 30 $10.50 Supermarkets, pharmacies and convenience stores nationwide

Ditch your signature fragrance and go for glamour. Take a walk on the wild side with a new fragrance that will set the tone for your holiday. If you're heading to New York you can't beat DKNY Be Delicious Fragrance. Heading to the Olympics? Then the new Burberry Body fragrance is quintissentially British chic. A tropical vacation calls for something seriously sexy. Our pick is anything by Tom Ford. For a beach vacation, Bobbi Brown Beach Shimmering Fragrance Oil is stunning and sure to bring back memories every time you wear it when you get home. Having a romantic escape to Paris with your one true love? May we suggest the new Elie Saab Le Parfum fragrance.

Here's where it's easy to go crazy. Put down your complete brush kit ladies and prepare to pare back. A trip to Shu Umera will have you armed with a sleek and edited travel palette. The Japanese know a thing or two about minamalism. Repeat after us: Don't Leave Home Without YSL Touche Eclat. The best illuminating concealer on the planet. Totally essential. Clinique Chubby Sticks are our suggested travel lippy for their beautiful formulations and face brightening shades. You will also need one killer red lipstick from Les Essential de Chanel collection. It will take you from beach babe to sophisticated minx in a split second. Foundation should have good coverage without feeling heavy, and of course be long lasting. We recommend the new Revlon Colour Stay Whipped Cream Make Up.

Forget eyeshadow and fussy routines. Instead try a multi-tasking palette that offers highlighter, shadow and blush in one. Christian Dior has a gorgeous palette and the new Chanel Exclusive Creation Lumière d’Artifices Beige is universally flattering. A good black kohl eyeliner from Estee Lauder Pure Colour range and a waterproof Mascara from Lancome finish off the perfect travel beauty bag.
