The staycation

You don’t need to travel far to make the most of your time off – day trips and patio parties are great ways to make memories. Here are some of our staycation staples...

Glow up

Whatever the great British weather serves up for your staycation, this easy to apply mousse will help keep your tan topped up. Rain or shine, with results in as little as one hour you’ll be beautifully bronzed and ready to glow!

Special memories

A top tip from us to you: choose a signature floral fragrance to wear during your summer break. That way, you’ll be transported back to those lazy, hazy summer days with every spritz. We love this warming, sensual scent from Estée Lauder – it just radiates sunshine.

Relax & recharge

When it comes to unwinding, you can’t beat an at-home spa sesh. Simply gather your favourite pampering products and get ready to seriously relax. Start with this brightening and hydrating sheet mask for 15 minutes of bliss.

The camping trip

Ahh the great outdoors! Camping trips are all about getting back to nature – just be sure to pack a few essential items to help make your trip a success.

Spray away

Being outside is great for the soul, but some insects can get a little too friendly. If you’re prone to getting nibbled, pack an insect repellent spray to help keep those biting bugs at bay. This one offers up to eight hours’ protection from mosquitos, midges and their mates. 

Stress-free tresses

Shampoo bars are a popular shower-block choice because you can just grab and go. This one’s great for taking care of dry, damaged hair, leaving it feeling nourished and protected. Maximum results, minimum fuss!

Fresh & zesty

These citrus-scented planet-friendly wipes are perfect for keeping clean when you don’t have easy access to soap and water. Just remember to pop them in the bin or take them home with you, and never flush wipes down the loo.

The city break

From landmarks to lunch with a view, you can’t beat soaking up all that a city has to offer. Here are our top tips for what to pop in your bag alongside the guide book.

Happy face

Stay protected on your sightseeing break with a hard-working SPF. This one’s waterproof, sweatproof and sand-proof, making it the perfect companion for wherever your trip takes you. Pop it in your backpack for handy reapplication throughout the day.

Portable power

From maps to snaps and restaurant reviews, you’ll want to make sure your phone is fully charged and ready for anything. Pack a portable power bank so you don’t risk running out of juice – this one can charge two devices at once, making it extra-handy.

The all-inclusive holiday

Relaxing to the max on a sun-soaked getaway this summer? Sounds dreamy. You’ve got your passport and sunnies at the ready, now it’s time to pack those all-important essentials.

The SPF factor

Tick sun protection off your to-pack list with this Soltan Once trio. Featuring an SPF15, 30 and 50+, it’s got the whole family covered, so you can focus on bagging the best sun lounger and working your way through the cocktail menu.

Small stuff

Pack smart and save valuable suitcase space with this stylish travel set. Simply decant your favourite lotions and potions into the travel-size bottles, jars and pouches. They’re hand-luggage compliant too, so you can keep them with you for freshening up on the flight.

Essential items

From hair dryers to phone chargers, you’re bound to take an electrical item or two (or three, or four), so don’t forget to pack a couple of travel adaptors too. Just be sure to pick up the right ones for your destination!

Now you’ve got your packing list ticked off you’re one step closer to your summer break. Holiday mode loading… don’t forget to send us a postcard!
