12 Last Minute Holiday Lifesavers You Don’t Want To Forget To Pack
Because there's nothing worse than arriving somewhere and realising you've packed nothing useful.
Still putting off your holiday packing? Here’s an easy peasy list of lifesaving essentials to add to your shopping list so you don’t get caught out abroad.
Because we ALL know there's nothing worse than arriving somewhere, unpacking and then realising that maybe you did need a few other things apart from those flip flops and that really nice silver bikini in your bag after all.
Skinnydip Cactus Make Up Bag
It’s clear so you can see what’s in there without having to rummage and can whack it in your hand luggage as long as every liquid in it is under 100ml.
Colgate Triple Action toothpaste and toothbrush
Gotta keep those pearly whites clean during your hols.
Eau Thermal Avene Water Spray
Yeah, it might seem pointless but you will be SO THANKFUL when you’re sweltering and can whip it out for a quick cool down spritz on your face.
Nivea Sensitive & Pure 48hr Anti-Perspirant
Travel-sized to save room in your bag and keep you fresh when you’re out and about seeing the sights.
Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash
A hand sanitizer so fancy, they’ve given it a posh name. Basically smells amazing and doesn’t leave you with that gross sticky feeling you get from so many santizers.
The Library Of Fragrance in Wet Garden
A delightful and subtle summer fragrance that will bring back all of the memories of sunny showers. Also small and compact so you won't spend the flight worrying about your fancy bottle of perfume smashing in your suitcase.
Wildfox Snooze Sleep Mask
Soft touch fabric to help you get your beauty sleep when you’re staying somewhere with no curtains or need to nap when the sun’s up.
Reduces unwelcome travel noises including snorers in hostel dorms and weird and exotic birds who like to get up earlier than you do.
Medication and a basic first aid kit
Don’t forget to pack any medicines you might need including pain killers and allergy medicines. Plasters also ALWAYS come in handy for any sweat-induced sandal blisters and if you're gonna be getting jiggy, don't forget condoms.
Shower gel and razors
If you like those legs to be smoothy smooth, pack razors and a cream shower gel to use as both a bodywash and a shaving do.
Batiste Dry shampoo
A multi-purpose miracle product that’s perfect for rescuing gross hair halfway through a long haul flight and which also doubles as a great volume booster when you’re off out on the town.
Tampons and pads
If you’re going to be on your period while you’re away, don’t forget to pack tampons, pads etc so you don’t have to waste time re-enacting that awks pregnancy test scene from Bridget Jones but with you having to ask for Tampax in broken Spanish.
