What 5 items would you pack in your beauty bag to take to a desert island?
1. Dr Sam’s Flawless Gossamer Tint 1
This is my ultimate all-mineral skin perfector with broad-spectrum SPF 50. It contains 11.8% Zinc Oxide, 4% Titanium Dioxide to deliver powerful UVA and SPF50 UVB protection whilst the combination of Shea Butter, Sodium Hyaluronate and Squalane leaves skin looking hydrated all day long without drying out - perfect for a desert island!
2. Surratt Perfectionniste Concealer Palette
I would pack this to help keep blemishes and redness concealed and under wraps.
3. Olaplex Bond Repair Shampoo and Conditioner
This is the only hair care brand that can tame my ‘combination’ Irish locks so well.
4. Dr Sam’s Flawless Nightly Serum
I always break out in the sun, so my Flawless Nightly Serum would definitely be in my beauty bag. This gentle-but-mighty retinoid with extras keeps my complexion bright and bump-free, even in the sun.
5. Hermes Lipstick Rose Ombre
This is my favourite nude lipstick of all time.
In addition to your 5 selected beauty items, which other luxury item would you take with you to the island?
A massive Eric Javitts sun hat - the most beautiful ‘proper’ sun hats I’ve come across.
