Jet set for your holiday with Victoria Centre Article

Summer is finally here, and we’ve got our fingers crossed for a hot and sunny one.

With restrictions easing, and travel simpler than it has been for two years, many of us are jetting off this summer to enjoy sunny holidays abroad. To help you get back into the swing of things, whether you’ve opted for a great British staycation or a visit to a tropical paradise, we’ve pulled together a list of holiday essentials to add to your packing list, with everything you need all under one roof.


Ritual of Karma

It’s important to protect our skin all year round, but especially so in the warmer months when UV levels are higher. Top of the packing list and a must for all holidays - sun cream has had an upgrade.

Bursting with the sweet, flora aroma of holy lotus and the nourishing power of white tea, immerse yourself in the summery vibes while protecting your skin with The Ritual of Karma sun care.

Available in SPF 50 and SPF 30, the Sun Protection Face Cream (£16.50) is a highly absorbable rich and hydrating cream, containing powerful natural antioxidants, natural vitamin E and ginkgo biloba. Highly water resistant, this face cream is the perfect pool or beach side companion, keeping you fresh-faced throughout the summer.

For full-body sun protection, reach for the non-sticky and hydrating Sun Protection Milky Spray (£20.00), available in SPF 20, 30 and 50. And, for the little ones, go for the Sun Protection Lotion Kids 50+ (£16.50) for extra water resistance and extra rapid absorption.

For those travelling light, Rituals has got you covered with perfectly-sized miniatures. Filled with purifying Indian rose and almond oil fragrances, take the spa with you by using Rituals of Ayurveda, Rebalancing Treat (£20.90) with shower foam, body cream, shower oil and shampoo.

Glow Stunner Collection Stylized 94879 STACKED HERO min

For summer beauty, there's one make-up trend that never fails, bronzed and glowing skin.

With 15 shades to choose from including light, medium, tan, rich, and deep, Morphe’s new Glowstunner Hydrating Tinted Moisturizer (£18.00) is the ultimate multi-tasking product.

This lightweight formula provides SPF 30 broad spectrum sun protection and a hydrating glow with powerful, skin-perfecting ingredients like hyaluronic acid, AHAs and antioxidants for a natural-looking, non-greasy finish. Great for all skin types. Easy to blend and build.

For the ultimate sun-kissed glow, with or without a holiday tan, the Bronze Show Velvet Matte Pressed Powder (£13.00) is infused with skin-nourishing organic coconut oil, refined shea butter and hyaluronic acid for a perfect application and finish.

To test out all Morphe’s summer beauty must-haves, visit in-store on the lower mall and receive a complimentary Summer skin make up lesson. See a Morphe Beauty Artist for more details.


Sostrene Grene

Keeping packing simple, Søstrene Grene has everything you need to organise your essentials before jetting off.

With bags of all shapes and sizes, from travel pouches (£1.44) and cute travel bags (£2.66) perfect to fit in your hand luggage, to cosmetic bags (£6.38) and waterproof shopping bags (£5.52) perfect for days out and about, there’s plenty to get you all packed up and ready to go.

For long-haul flights and maximum comfort while travelling, the plush Neck Pillow (£10.80) is the perfect in-flight accessory, and don’t forget an Activity Book (£3.56) and compact Pencil Case Kit (£2.68) to help keep those little passengers occupied.

To keep your hotel room or villa cool all day long, the Anyday John Lewis & Partners Spectrum USB Desk Fan (£22.00), with three variable speeds and the option to oscillate the cool air around the room, is a must.

And, whether to be used pool side, for sunbathing on the beach or put to good use as a travel friendly picnic rug, the Anyday John Lewis & Partners Whatever Floats Your Boat (£12.00) and the John Lewis & Partners Sunny Side Up (£15.00) slogan beach towels will brighten any summer occasion.

In an increasingly digital world, nothing feels more special than printing physical photos, for a unique holiday keepsake.

Available in a rainbow of colours including, pink, blue, purple and grey, the Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 camera (£69.99) is designed to fit seamlessly into your everyday life.

Simple to use, with automatic exposure and built-in selfie lens and mirror, these beautifully compact cameras produce high quality credit-card sized prints, time after time. The perfect holiday gadget for capturing your favourite moments.
