6 beauty products that will make you feel like you’re on a tropical island

Melissa Carton

Treat yourself!

Even though we’re starting to hear a lot about lockdown restrictions regarding travel to different counties ease, I still don’t know how many foreign holidays will be on the cards this year.

I’m always a bit of an airport panicker, needing to the get to the airport seven hours early and double checking that we have everything, but I would honestly love that rush of anxiety again if I got to get on a plane.


Still it’s not all doom and gloom as there are gorgeous spots to visit within Ireland.

Not only that but there are plenty of fab beauty products that will make you feel like you’re laying on a tropical beach even if you’re actually on Rosslare Strand.

1. Garnier Hair Food Banana RRP €7.95

As someone with curly hair I absolutely adore this hair mask but regardless of what hair type you have I would recommend picking this up.

Even after you wash it out it leaves your hair smelling divine and the formula is vegan too.

2. Dr.Paw Paw Orange and Mango hand cream RRP €6.95

With all the hand sanitizing we’ve been doing we need a good hand cream.

This one from Dr. Paw Paw not only has age renewing properties but the gorgeous orange and mango smell will make it feel like summer has come early.

This product is also vegan and cruelty free which we stan.

3. Ole Henriksen Banana Bright serum RRP €69

You’ve probably seen me talking about the Banana Bright serum before as it’s one of my all time favourite beauty products, but I honestly can’t talk about it enough.

Not only is it like an instant facelift but the banana and citrus scent is so refreshing especially if you use it in the morning.

4. Charlotte Tilbury Citrus Oil Radiance Cleanse RRP €40 (for cleanse and mask)

When it comes to skincare Charlotte Tilbury is the queen and even beauty gurus will admit there’s next to no dupes for her skincare products.

Like the Ole Henriksen serum the Charlotte Tilbury Citrus Oil Radiance Cleanse is one of my must have products and I use mine everyday.

The citrus scent is out of this world and a great way to wake yourself up in the morning.

5. REN Ready Steady Glow Tonic RRP €27.45

Unlike the last two products I mentioned REN is a new brand to my skincare routine and so far I’m really liking their Ready Steady Glow Tonic.

Not only does the tonic leave a lovely glow to the skin but there’s something about the smell of it that really reminds me of being close to the sea.

REN is also a vegan and PETA approved brand.

6. White to Brown Coconut Body Spritz RRP €9.99

Last but absolutely certainly not least is my hands down favourite new product.

I’ve only been using the White to Brown Coconut Body Spritz the last week and I’m already in love with it.

It is literally a tropical vacation in a body and I can see myself running out soon as I love spraying myself head to toe in it.
