Anthelios Comfort Cream 50 240 x 420pxSun Cream

Although many of us enjoy getting a tan when we go away, there are major health risks associated with lying out in the sun for hours. We strongly recommend packing a high UV rated sun cream for your skin type. We love La Roche-Posay sunscreens as they offer a wide range of high protection products in various oils, sprays, compacts, sticks and a BB cream offering SPF 50+ coverage.

You definitely don’t want to forget this one! These innovative gel insoles provide metatarsal support which shifts weight away from the ball of your foot, eliminating that burning pain you get from wearing high heels. What’s more, because they’re transferrable between shoes, you only need one pair of NINE TO FIVE Heels insoles, leaving you with loads of extra space to pack even more pairs of heels!



Not only a cool fashion statement, sunglasses are also the best way to protect your eyes and the delicate skin around them. They’re also great for hiding a multitude of sins and the effects of last night’s cocktails! Head over to Next for the best selection of on trend styles.
