BEAUTIFY: Duty Free January

Got the January blues? Us too. We’re only a couple days in and the drunken blur is wearing off, the weather is shit and everyone is asking you what resolutions you’ve made (most of which you’ve already broken). Life is tough (#firstworldproblems) and there’s no light at the end of the January tunnel.

But wait! I was hardly going to pull you down like that and not bring you back up. There is hope. Fancy a trip? That’s right, you’d forgotten about being able to leave, go to sunnier climes and get some Vitamin D that you’re seriously lacking. Having visited this place back in December, I’m yearning to go back already- if just for a dip in the jacuzzi.

However as we all know, going abroad isn’t just about the destination- it’s about the travel there. I’m talking about the Duty Free section and the amazing sets you can get.


Particularly handy for when you’ve forgotten about the 100ml rule and you’re skin is sure to dry out on the plane: Clarins’ Take Off Essentials pack. For only thirty odd quid you can really stock up on all your Clarins favourites, including the HydraQuench Cream Mask, Beauty Flash Balm and Eye Contour Gel.


Do you easily get bored on planes? Me too. That’s why I took this mini set (aka doesn’t weigh your bag down) of OPI nail lacquers on my recent trip, and was entertained the whole way. Plus, perfect for pre-nail painting session was the L’Occitane hand cream set. Which were also great to pop in my pocket (and those of my friends) when we went out skiing for the day.

So, go and pack your passport for a trip to the airport! Sorry, I mean abroad…
