Your honeymoon is booked – hurrah for some sun! – you have picked out a fabulous capsule wardrobe and now all that is left to do is to get your hair, body and skincare together. Ooh, and your makeup, of course! In this and my July blog post, I’ll be sharing my favourite finds that should definitely be on your honeymoon essentials list!
Hair that is exposed to sun and sea salt or chlorine needs lots of TLC and your usual shampoo and conditioner just won’t cut it. Schwarzkopf’s BC Sun Protect travel sized range is a trio of 100ml products packaged in a cute, white and gold bikini wet bag. The mild shampoo gently cleanses and soothes sun-stressed hair and the leave in, spray conditioner is ultra convenient and leaves locks super smooth and shiny. When out in the sun, a quick spritz of the waterproof shimmer oil spray will protect your hair and scalp from damaging UV rays and gives a high glamour, shimmering finish to the hair.
Schwarzkopf BC Sun Protect Travel Set £15.95 from Schwarzkopf Professional and partner salons.

For a longer jaunt and hair care your new hubby will be more than happy to share, Clynol’s full sized Sun range is unbeatable. Smelling of sunshine, the shampoo and leave in, spray conditioner, enriched with vitamin E and UV filter, leave hair lustrous and damage free. An added bonus is that the shampoo doubles up as a shower gel for those of you who would rather pack a few extra lippies than a separate body wash!
Clynol Sun Duo pack £14.99.

In my opinion, Korres definitely has this category sorted with its amazing body wash and moisturiser ranges as well as its sun protection. My favourite scent for couples to share is the Basil Lemon. The fresh, zesty scent will awaken your senses and leave you feeling energised for the day ahead, even if you did have too many Champagne cocktails the previous evening! Both the shower gel and the body milk come in miniature 40ml size as well as full size options.
Korres Basil Lemon shower gel and body milk from £3 each.
Available from Debenhams.
If you are off to sunny climes for your honeymoon, do make sure you have sun protection sorted. There is nothing worse than the feel or look of burnt lobster skin! Korres do a fab range of spray products, such as their Sunscreen Face and Body Emulsion Yoghurt which is available in SPFs 50, 30 and 20 and my personal favourite, the Walnut and Coconut Suntan Oil for face and body, available in SPFs 20 and 10. This latter smells absolutely divine and leaves skin incredibly soft and hydrated.
For skin that has suffered a little excess exposure to the sun, the Cooling After Sun Face and Body Yoghurt soothes away redness and irritation and smells incredible to boot!
Korres Sunscreen Face and Body Emulsion Yoghurt 150ml from £18.
Korres Walnut and Coconut Suntan Oil 150ml £20.
Korres Cooling After Sun Face and Body Yoghurt 150ml £16.
Available from www.lookfantastic.com and www.asos.com
