Aveda Suncare Protective Hair Veil

Pop this water-resistant UV-defence spray in your beach bag for invisible protection from sun exposure for up to 16 hours. Naturally-derived UVA/ UVB inhibitors found in Wintergreen and Cinnamon Bark oils help protect hair from colour fade, dryness and breakage. Aveda’s antioxidant blend is made with green tea extract, organic sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E. Certified organic Shea Butter and Coconut and Palm oils condition and detangle without weighing hair down. On damp hair, spray evenly and comb through and always re-apply after swimming.

Aveda Color Conserve

In the summer it’s hard to tell if a range that claims to protect your hair colour, really is working because the sun (I was in Barbados for two warm weeks) does change it. But I think this delicious smelling shampoo (£15.50) and the very nourishing conditioner (£17.50) has helped maintain a fresh look. My hair is pretty fine and the conditioner didn’t weigh it down. Recommended.

Sisley classic

Their Body Confort is the Rolls Royce of body creams: nurturing, soothing, calming and replenishing. At £81.50 it ought to be special! It is.

Nuxe cream

Nuxe Body 24hr moisturising body lotion. This rich body lotion gives your skin a pampering treat. I think it smells divine but my colleague thought it too sweet. This rich body lotion is instantly absorbed and moisturises all day.

Tootsie treat

Aveda Foot Relief™ is a soothing creme designed to nourish the roughest, toughest feet. Active herbs combined with fruit, salicylic and lactic acids gently slough away dryness. Quick-absorbing plant-derived oils soften rough patches, and help feet smell fresh. I particularly liked the cooling sensation which left my tired feet and legs feeling invigorated. £18 for 125ml.
