Holiday beauty: The stuff that smells good

These are slightly random products to be grouped together, but when I was thinking of themes I figured that these all had one thing in common…they smell amazing.

First up, the basics:


Boots Mango & Orange Blossom Shower Gel. 

There’s no better way to describe this shower gel other than that it smells of Starburst (or Opal Fruits… if you’re feeling a bit retro). That basically sums this up, it smells good enough to eat – this was basically a last moment airport purchase (along with the shampoo and conditioner) so I could stick within the luggage weight limit… and I don’t regret it! For £1.20 it was a bargain that smells amazing.

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner.

Another airport purchase – mainly for the combination of promises of hydration as my hair really dries out on holiday and the fact that it smells really lovely. I liked the shampoo from this duo, but didn’t love the conditioner – I’m not sure what it was, it just didn’t feel like it really absorbed easily to my hair. I did take some extra deep conditioners with me though, so my hair isn’t as straw like as it could have been!


Next up, the slightly more fun beauty product…and one that I am due a bit of a rave about…my new perfume of choice:

‘One’ from the new Ralph Lauren ‘Big Pony’ collection for women*

I have a whole post dedicated to all four coming soon, but as a little preview – this is my favourites. It’s fresh, sweet and unusual – I’ll save talking about all the notes and details for my post on all four! But of course if you have questions, pop a comment below!

So that’s it for my holiday picks for stuff that smells good! Up next…skin care!
