Beauty Products I've Purchased For Kos

For the first time in my life, I've actually calmed down with my holiday purchases. I'm normally THAT type of person that buys everything new then either leaves them there or returns home with half empty bottles to add to my cupboard. Annoying. 

This time, I thought, it's going to be different. I'm going to clamp down on what I'm actually buying and buy products that I actually don't have or need to replace. 

First up is something that I've actually never purchased, texture spray. I've heard so much about these lately that I thought I'd give it a go to help with body and volume because my hair goes SO flat when I'm hot!

I know there's a lot of hate directed towards make up wipes from beauty bloggers but I don't see entirely what all the fuss is about. Yes they're not good for removing all traces of make up but for a quick swipe of mascara or pre-cleansing, they're great. More love to make up wipes.

I bought this product on a complete whim because it was 3 for £15. I'm a sucker for those types of deals. I remember having it when I was younger and I remember it having quite the placebo effect. Needless to say, we'll find out in a few days time.

Over the past few months I've really become a fan of this micellar water. I tend to sweep it across my face each morning to remove sleep dirt - which definitely is a thing. The best part has to be this ADORABLE on the go size!

If you follow me on Instagram you'll see that I used these before Leeds Festival and they were that amazing that I've picked up two more. They really do give your skin a surge of moisture which lasts for days afterwards. Fresh AF. 

Deodorant. Self explanatory and absolute necessity. I like this one because it doesn't leave my armpits wet after I've put it on, doesn't leave white marks and lasts all day.

In my opinion, Fleur has absolutely nailed it when it comes to eyelashes. I usually wear the Fleur Loves ones, but I couldn't resist picking these up when they launched a few weeks ago. They're 3/4 lashes just like the Fleur Loves but they have two layers of lashes so they blend seamlessly. Genius.

Teeth whitening. Not something that I've ever been fussed on but I've started drinking more black tea lately and I can see the effect it's having on my teeth. I was recommended this by a friend and I actually really like it. I could see results after two uses - I also burnt my lip but that was my own fault.

Is it just me, or is sun-cream ridiculously expensive?! I mean, one of the brands I looked at was £16 a bottle. For sun protection! I couldn't believe it. Luckily I stumbled upon this bundle from Soltan that has two sun-creams and an after-sun and was only £13. Bargain.

And there you have it, my mini pre-holiday haul. I know there's not much here but that's kind of the point. Save more spend less and all that.

I hope you're all having a lovely day, let me know what your holiday essentials are!



  1. I love your haul! There's something about traveling that gets me excited to buy little samples and trial sizes. I want to try that micellar water and those lashes!
    Your buddy Jen 😁

    1. Hey Jen! I know what you mean and I go so overboard when travelling, I think I just panic buy haha! I love the micellar water but I haven't tried the lashes yet - see what I mean about panic buying!

      Speak soon X

  2. These look like some great purchases! I really want to try using texture spray as I have never used it before.

    1. I like it but sometimes it leaves my hair feeling a little.. sticky. I'm looking to try a few more soon so hopefully I can find one that works well 💁🏼 X
