Don't Forget These 5 Beauty Products On Your Honeymoon

It's probably tempting to pack your entire beauty arsenal for your honeymoon. From your favourite lip balms to your handy pocket mascara, but we have you covered for the real, real essentials.


After all, we know frizzy hair and blotchy skin have no place on your long awaited amazing vacation but whether you're tanning on tropical beaches or backpacking across Europe, it only takes a few of the right products to keep you looking as refreshed as you feel.

Check out our 5 essential beauty products perfect for every honeymoon below!

Sun Screen

If you're thinking, "that's too obvious", just remember that your holiday skin sincere regime is as important, if not more. Protect your skin from those terribly damaging rays even if you aren't travelling to a tropical destination and if you're hitting the sandy beaches of the Seychelles, make sure you reapply every 80 minutes (and straight after swimming!) to keep away from nasty burns. The best advice we could give you is to opt for an easy spray Viche product - just to save yourself a messy hassle while you're on the go.

Soothing Eye Cream

A surefire way to ruin your honeymoon photos are through tired-looking eyes from a long flight. Remember to pack an eye cream especially for puffiness and dark circles to keep you looking bright and refreshed. Hydration and moisturization is extra important when flying with air-conditioned and circulated air being extra drying on the skin.

BB Cream

It's no wonder that BB Creams and beauty balms are all the rage right now, they combine the benefits of moisturiser, sunscreen, foundation, serum and a primer in one quick step! If you are opting for a natural feel, just smooth a penny-sized amount evenly over your skin. For a slightly heavier coverage, set it with a pressed powder.

Lip Palette

We know that limiting your lip colour options is not fun and in an ideal world, one shade of lipstick should carry you through your entire honeymoon. A simple lip palette is sleek enough not to clutter your makeup bag or your carry on but still gives you access to a wide range of colours and textures for you to pick from! A neutral gloss will keep your lips moisturised on a long plane ride, while a more saturated red is perfect for a night out on the town. If you are bit of a daring bride, mix your colours to create your ideal shade.

Dry Shampoo

You might find you won't have time to wash and style your lovely locks between honeymoon adventures and dinner reservations. Even if you've mastered the DIY blowout, a foolproof dry shampoo can be a life-saver on honeymoon. You are going to want one that leaves your hairy bouncy and that lasts for hours. Remember that a little bit of this goes a long way, so use it sparingly.
