Suzanne took time out to tell us about the beauty and wellness products she will be taking with her on her travels this Summer…

Aeroplane Comfort

 

I make sure to layer up when flying due to the aggressive air conditioning usually found in the aircraft cabin!  This jacket is soft and comforting and is from a fab shop called Dilly Grey, which is near to Onolla, it’s also perfect for those cooler evenings on holiday.

Holistic Silk Slippers

 

I always find hotel slippers too big and cumbersome, so I always pack my Holistic Silk Massaging Slippers to pad around my room and sometimes even wear them to breakfast so I get a reflexology treatment with every step. Win Win! 

Travel Inspired Notes

 

I get ideas when I travel plus I like to jot down little gems that I discover along the way so I always keep my trusty Smythson notebook to hand. Small and perfectly formed I am a huge fan so have a rather large collection in all colours now!

Wild Beauty Moisturising Lip Treatment

 

I’m a lip balm obsessive as suffer from dry lips but with so many on the market it’s difficult to know which ones really work –  Rhug Moisturising Lip Treatment with Rhug Beeswax is an absolute winner, plus it’s rich in vitamin E which helps cellular restoration from sun damage – a bonus!  The mini pot is the perfect size for even the smallest of handbags. 

Travel Size Skincare

This 30ml Purifying Cleansing Lotion with Dandelion is the ideal size for up to 10 days away, it’s also rich in antioxidants and nutrients but I particularly love it when I am wearing lots of sun cream as it contains organic papaya extract rich in natural enzymes, as opposed to aggressive acids that are in so many products now, that help to effectively yet gently remove dead skin cells and encourage cell turnover for brighter, smoother less congested skin.

A Mini Perfume Wardrobe

 

I would never lug a large bottle of perfume when I travel, plus it’s nice to have a little capsule scent wardrobe on my travels so this clean, fine fragrance Discover Set from Medeau, with a mini of each of their four gorgeous eau de parfums is just the ticket. 

I love the super pretty Priya Wear Organic cotton beauty bags sold a few doors up from Onolla at Oh Darling (perfect for my Rhug mini’s) . They are made from left-over fabric from their organic pjs and are hand block-printed and come in 3 sizes from a mini make-up bag to larger soap bag.

And one last question for Suzanne… where is your Wild Beauty Escape?

 

Nihi Sumba’s tagline is Edge of Wildness and it is just that and brimming with sea, soul and sun.

Spa pilgrims flock here for the nature and in the spa too, everything feels so organic you could practically eat the body scrubs and wraps. Expect Eco villas, lashing waves and a 90-minute trek along the coast to an open-air treatment platform perched atop a cliff. Horse lovers will adore the empowering riding on the beach and the horse whispering sessions.
