    I Took These "Love Island" Boots Beauty Bits On Holiday With Me To Really Put Them To The Test – Here's What Happened

    Like everybody and their nan, I'm obsessed with Love Island. So when I received some of the Boots beauty bits they're actually using in the villa I got a bit excited and decided to take them on holiday with me so I could feel like a *true* Islander.

    First thing's first, I had to make sure my skin was protected from the sun (and as I had yet to foray into sunny climes this year, a high SPF was crucial!). It was time to lay it on thick with Soltan's Protect & Moisturise SPF50+ lotion.

    Skincare is a big deal for me while on holiday, 'cause who wants their skin to break out when they're going makeup-free by the pool most days? Exactly. So I'm glad I took this No7 HydraLuminous Overnight Recovery Gel Cream with me.

    And there was no need to put all my eggs in one basket, as this No7 HydraLuminous Water Concentrate was a great complementary product!

    My skin can get quite dry after tanning and breaks out easily on the best of days – let alone when I travel! So predictably, this Glow Essence serum was a bit of me.

    Speaking of skincare saviours, Ole Henriksen's Banana Bright Eye Crème kept the sensitive skin around my eyes ~on its toes~.

    Holidays aren't *just* about skincare, so I was excited to use the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb (apparently a firm favourite of Islanders past and present!). 'Cause nothing suits a holiday glow *quite* as well as a glossy lip.

    Now, this Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette might not be in the actual villa, but it *has* been created specifically for Love Island (and includes the most stunning holiday-friendly shades!).

    It was a little stormy on one of the evenings, so I took it as the perfect opportunity to try these moisturising foot socks! 'Cause who knows when the next toe-sucking challenge will come around?

    ☀️ Some more Love Island beauty bits I have my eye on for my next trip away ☀️

    The Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint looks like the *ideal* lightweight alternative to my normal day-to-day foundation. You could even say my head is turned.

    Avoid looking like an utter ~melt~ with the No7 Hydraluminous Fixing Mist. It will keep your makeup looking dewy, not sweaty.

    I'm ready to crack on with Sol de Janeiro's iconic Brazilian Bum Bum Cream! It smells incredible with notes of salted caramel and pistachio, and will remind you of your hols every time you wear it.

    You can't recreate a true bombshell look without Benefit's cult-status Hoola Glow Bronzer!

    If the Fenty Beauty Body Lava Body Luminizer walked into the villa, I'd pull it for a chat immediately.

    My hair gets super frizzy in humid weather (it is what it is), so it could do with all the help it can get from OGX's Renewing+ Argan Oil of Morocco pH Balanced shampoo!
