Georgia Jones - September
By London Designer Outlet
This summer got off to a pretty exciting start after finding out my Husband & I were expecting our first mini person! ‘Could this be my last chance of a summer holiday without a little one’ thoughts kicked in and a last minute summer holiday to the gorgeous island of Santorini was booked!! With less than a week before we headed off on our ‘Babymoon’ I made a frantic dash to LDO which offers all year-round discounts of up to 70% to stock up on some holiday essentials!
Whilst away I wanted to make sure I kept my body hydrated and healthy from the inside out, after all I’m looking after two now! So I stocked up on some skincare & vitamin essentials, which I thought I’d share with you guys. Majority are products I use pregnant or not (apart from the vitamins of course!)
So here are my holiday essential picks from my LDO spree:
The Body Shop - Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub - A brilliant light exfoliator, gentle enough for sun exposed skin but super purifying for sweaty sun cream skin!
The Body Shop - Tea Tree Oil - This has been an absolute life saver for my hormonal skin especially whilst away. A dab of Oil on an angry spot dries it right out, perfect!
The Body Shop - Shea Body Butter - A super nourishing body moisturiser perfect used as an after sun & to rub on a growing bump! Plus it smells divine!
Holland & Barrett - Vita Coco Coconut Oil - This Organic 100% raw product is my holiday hero!! A multi-use product great for moisturising the whole body. I use it as a hair mask on holiday (leaving it on all day in the sunshine) and it’s amazing at soothing burn!
Whilst browsing the aisles of Holland & Barrett I also picked up some Pregnancy Vitamins which I think are so important whilst on holiday (we don’t always eat enough fruit and veg on holiday do we!).
So a little helping hand to stay healthy is always welcome. There are brilliant vitamin options for non-pregnant people too!
Although it was only toiletries on my list I couldn’t resist the bargains on offer so also picked up a top and a pair of shoes too. Perfect for my trip away and once back in ‘sunny’ England!
