    Nothing brings us joy quite like a massive beauty haul, but it feels even better to fill up your basket with holiday beauty products.

    Stocking up on SPF, after sun and travel minis is the best way to get in the mood for an upcoming summer trip, if you ask us. But what should you take for a holiday abroad in 2018?

    We’ve tested out some of the best of the beauty world’s newcomers for the summer holiday season – and trust us when we tell you you’re going to want all of these ahead of your next vacay, right between your best sun cream and high-waist bikinis.

    There’s no excuse to forget to apply your sun cream with La Roche-Posay’s new pocket Anthelios. Smaller than half an iPhone, it’s ideal for top-ups whether you’re having an aperatif on the balcony or taking an outdoor excursion. Plus, it’s small enough to take in your hand luggage; here’s why you should always wear SPF when you fly.

    Don’t forget to protect your hair from the sun, too. Hair authority Philip Kingsley has your locks covered with a UV shield that prevents colour fade, but also stops damage caused by chlorine and salt water. We’re calling it: it’s the summer holiday hair essential.

    Hotel hairdryers are notoriously awful, but bringing your own can add precious kgs to your luggage weight. No more: ghd’s Flight Travel Hairdryer weighs less than 500g with 80% of the horse power of its full size counterpart. You might be sceptical, but trust us when we say it manages to outperform a lot of the best hair dryers.

    So what are you waiting for? Shop our round up of the best holiday products from our gallery before they all sell out, and stash them straight in your suitcase.

    We promise you’ll love your new haul of holiday beauty products.
