Honeymoon essentials

The dog is with his sitters, we have checked in at the airport and now it’s time to relax as we set off on the honeymoon of a lifetime. The Maldives is our destination, and is somewhere I have never ventured before and I could not be more excited!

Before you ask, of course the hotel we chose has a spa and I will be sure to tell you all about it. Do keep an eye out on my Instagram too @whiterobeandslippers as I will be sure to post a photo or two.

Before we jet off I thought I would share some of my honeymoon skin and hair care essentials with you that I am taking with me…

Hawaiian Tropic Air Soft Face

Honeymoon 2

This sun cream for your face is just WOW. It truly lives up to its name and is super duper soft. The silky hydration formula is so light weight and nourishing. It is SPF 30 and is the best face suncream I have ever used. It’s not greasy, it sinks in really quickly and it has a gorgeous coconut fragrance.  100% recommend.

Bronze Goddess Whipped Body Cream by Estee Lauder

Honeymoon 4

I discovered this cream after using the Bronze Goddess fragrance which has become my go to holiday perfume. The smell is divine. If you could bottle up a holiday scent into a product this would be it. Fruity, coconutty and just gorgeous. The cream is light, absorbed quickly and the smell is long lasting. I will be sure to be smothering myself in it after a long day sunbathing.

White Company Make Up Travel Brushes

Honeymoon 3

I was kind enough to be gifted these brushes by my Sister for Christmas. They are light weight and the bristles are very light to the touch and fantastic for make up application, especially eye shadow. So rather carting around all my normal make up brushes on holiday this set is perfect!

L’oreal Stylista #beachwaves

Honeymoon 1

This is a new product I will be trying out in the Maldives. With the sun, sea breeze and salt water my hair will definitely go a bit wavy. I was intrigued by this product as I had seen some great reviews so I am hoping it will just tame my natural waves and give me the look I want. I will be sure to let you know.

Do let me know what your favourite holiday essentials are.

Until next time breath in and relax.


‘Victoria you are always at a spa, which ones do you recommend…’ a phrase I hear from my friends and family a lot and a question I love answering.

A question which inspired me to create this blog.
