Bodhi & Birch Super25 Botanical Serum
I was lucky enough to trial the Bodhi & Birch Superfood Series before it launched. Super25 Botanical Serum was for me, the absolute hero of the Series. It even healed my sore skin after microdermabrasion, literally overnight! This gorgeous naturally fragranced serum packs a punch with it’s potent actives, powerful antioxidants, polyphenols, EFAs and vitamins. It really is skin food at it’s best. This product is a skin saviour and I will never go away without this travel sized dropper bottle in my luggage!

Colour Wow Dream Coat
When I first tired to buy Colour Wow Dream Coat, it was sold out everywhere! Thankfully it’s now back in stock and we have the perfect travel size for you to try. This super de-frizzing spray uses a new technology to cover each strand of hair with an invisible cloak. This protects the hair shaft and prevents humidity frizzing the hair. This product really is a game changer if you have suffered the effects of holiday hair – I know I have! This travel sized spray is perfect whether you have check-in luggage or carry-on.

Cucumber Clothing Headband
You may have seen my article and video with Cucumber co-founder, Nancy. Cucumber has a range of beautiful night and leisure wear created from a super clever moisture wicking fabric to keep you feeling cool and fresh, even if you’re experiencing hot flushes. The perfect garments to take on holiday, many are versatile and can be used for day or nightwear. In the Travel Bag you will find a very useful Headband which is perfect for keeping your hair off your face while cleansing or during hot weather.
Cuderm Moisturising Cream
Have you noticed your body is drier as you’ve got older? I know I have. The solution is to use Cuderm Moisturising Cream daily. Formulated with Colloidal Oatmeal, this lightweight, non-greasy cream sinks straight into the skin. I use it straight after a shower or bath, locking in moisture all day long. Although you can’t feel the finely milled Oatmeal, it gently exfoliates skin, keeping it looking healthy and radiant. This is the best value for money body moisturiser I’ve used in the past year!

Curaprox CS 5460 Ultra Soft Toothbrush
Although I mainly use an electric toothbrush, I always have a Curaprox Ultra Soft toothbrush to hand. I first read about them in the Times, who were signing their praises. They are created with a large amount (5460 to be precise) of extremely fine filaments rather than bristles. It’s the gentle sweeping action of the brush with its easily angled head, that completely cleans your teeth and gumline. There is something so satisfying about thoroughly cleaning your teeth and this brush makes it so easy. Perfect for traveling as the brush comes with its own hygienic cap.
Curaprox Black is White Charcoal Whitening Toothpaste
Equally as satisfying as the Curaprox toothbrush is the Black is White lemony flavoured toothpaste. The toothpaste is formulated without SLS, triclosan or any bleaching agents. With continued use, teeth look healthier and whiter, and your mouth feels super fresh. This product picked up a Beauty Shortlist Award this year for the best teeth whitening toothpaste!

Eyelergy Eye Drops
In the past few years I have started to suffer from hay fever. During the spring and early summer my eyes are itchy and sore. Thankfully I found Eyelergy because these eye drops are a godsend. They instantly relieve tried and dry eyes and create a natural lubricating and hydrating barrier to protect the eye. They are safe to use if you are a contact lens wearer and can even be used by children over the age of 6. The sterile droppers are easy to travel with and make application simple. They are ideal to use after a long-haul flight or if you’re sleeping with air-conditioning on during the night.

touch in SOL Metalist Liquid Foil & Glitter Shadow Duo Talia
You may remember Nikki demonstrating this product from the cult Korean brand touch in SOL, in our October 2017 Beauty Product Review video. The pretty pale gold shadow duo gives a rich metallic pigment and pretty sparkle to brighten eyes. Use Metalist Liquid for a long lasting, non-creasing base and apply the lightweight Foil Finish Glitter on top to turn up the intensity. This size is so cute for travelling or for your handbag. Go from day to night by gently taping a little glitter over the Liquid Foil.

True North De-Stressed Sleeping Mask 6.1
I have only recently explored the range of products from True North and I am so impressed with them. I recently used the De-Stressed Mask several times during my sailing holiday and it kept my skin glowing rather than looking weather beaten. The De-Stressed Mask instantly cools, and hydrates stressed skin and can be used as a quick pick-me-up or as an overnight treatment. Aloe Vera and a plant derived ingredient called Pentavitin work to strengthen the skin’s barrier. Expect skin to be deeply moisturised, soft, smooth and more radiant. You should also check out True North’s incredible App, My Skin Coach, which gives you a skin diagnosis straight from your smartphone. It’s so accurate and from the App you can select the products that your skin really needs – you have to try this!

True North Protective Lip Balm SPF50
How often have you forgotten to protect your lips from the sun? The easiest way to thoroughly protect your lips is with True North’s high sun protection factor lip balm. It relives dry, sore and cracked lips with a deeply nourishing formula containing vitamins A and E. I’m a little addicted to this rich lip balm which seems to last much longer than traditional lip products. It’s the perfect lip balm for a summer holiday or a ski trip.

Nurture Replenish Hand Cream SPF15
I am guilty of not telling you just how good the Nurture Replenish range of products are. They are specifically formulated for women going through, and after menopause. One of my absolute favourite products from the range is the Hand Cream SPF15. Not only does it protect hands from damaging UV rays, it also has Tyrostat, an ingredient that works to reduce the appearance of age spots and pigmentation. Deeply nourishing and non-greasy, this hand cream will help to keep your hands looking younger. Although the SPF isn’t of benefit during the night, I still apply this hand cream before bed and wake up with softer and smoother hands with less obvious pigmentation.
Full size 75ml
Radical Skincare Anti-Aging Restorative Moisture
I have long been a fan of Radical Skincare. Their products are highly effective and use Trylacel Technology which harnesses antioxidants at their most potent level to fight free radicals. The Anti-Aging Restorative Moisture is multi-tasking and packed with antioxidants and nutrients to revitalise and brighten skin. Expect an increase in hydration and a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles. Skin will look firmer and skin tone more even.
