6 essentials you need for travelling (that you should do and get before leaving!)

Your holiday hit-list has evolved. Now travelling is all about usefulness and getting more for your money. And it’s the same when it comes to our packing.

These 6 new things to get and do before you jet off will make your trip a whole lot better. Trust us! Travel won’t be the same again.

1. Some stylish headphones

Forget Beats, the headphones we’re obsessing over right now are a whole lot more stylish. And far less clunky for when you’re travelling around. Welcome brand Phonaudio into your life. We love these ones with the gold detailing and the sound quality is incredible – we even asked a DJ for his verdict and he was impressed!

2. A travelling facial

Sun cream can leave our skin greasy and clogged. The solution? Take the Foreo Luna Play cleansing brush with you to avoid any gross breakouts. It’s travel size (the size of a cotton pad) and it doesn’t need charging (the battery lasts for 100 uses). A real travelling essential to grab now!

3. A de-frizzing hair treatment

Everyone dreams of easy breezy holiday hair don’t they? Well there is a magical place you can go to get it! Zoltan and Chi, as known to me as The Hair Whisperers, can transform dry, frizzy, damaged hair into sleekness (that requires minimal styling and blow-drying!) – just what you need when you’re chilling out on holiday.

Using advanced treatments that the duo rigorously test, you are guaranteed to leave with the hair you have always wanted. No matter what your issues are when you arrive! Book in to see them – go on, treat yourself!

Check out our interview with Zoltan – Is this the secret to shiny, perfect hair that will ACTUALLY stay like that?!

4. The best sleep hack you’ll ever get

Planes, buses, hostels, hotel rooms – why does travelling always seem so noisy? Yep, sleeplessness affects us all when we’re away so you need all the help you can get! This Sleep Kit from This Works actually does what it says on the tin. Their products are tested rigorously and a huge 99% of people who tried this said that it did, indeed, works. Hello stress-less nights!

5. A pedicure

Our favourite pedicure in London is at the blissful Four Seasons Hotel. The views are spectacular and the staff really go above and beyond to make your visit as special as possible. Their pool is also a must-visit whilst you’re there!

6. Paula’s Choice – Shine Stopper

The Shine Stopper from Paula’s Choice is a holiday must-have you’ll wonder how you ever lived with before. A few dabs of this works wonders on an oily forehead and T-zone (which, in the heat, let’s be honest, we all suffer from!). Micro-sponge technology (fancy) works to fight shine and oil build-up and it keeps skin looking matte for up to six hours. Get this in your carry-on fast!Anti Oil Makeup
