Sun, sea, sand and Saltee
– What first drew you to Saltee?
As someone who has always been somewhat lazy with both skincare and suncare, being able to have a product that combines both is an absolute dream! Obviously there are other products out there offering that but I was attracted to Saltee’s fresh approach, aesthetic and the feel of the product on my skin which tends to be very sensitive.
– Historically when have you bought suncream – pre vacay or airport?
In the past, panic buy at the airport or resort. But I’m trying to be a bit more responsible about what I put on my skin these days!
– Has a sun care brand ever excited you before?
Not really if I’m honest, it’s always been a forced purchase by a friend or family member.
– Tell us about your perfect long weekend.
I just got back from a few days in Jordan with my mum. It was utterly perfect. Short flight, year round sun, best travel companion.
– Beach or mountain?
Both! My ideal trip combines relaxation, activities, adventures and lots of cocktails.
– Where’s the most idyllic place you have ever visited?
Costa Rica, it has beaches, mountains, jungles, rain forests and the most wonderful people.
– How long before a trip do you start packing?
I’d love to say a week ahead of flying but being honest, usually it’s the night before. Although I do start planning my outfits ahead of time so I know what to shove in my case at the inevitable 11th hour.
– Boutique hangout or 5 star luxury hotel?
Ideally somewhere that combines both. Pikes Ibiza and Palais Namaskar in Morocco are favourites of mine.
– What are your 2019 summer tips?
Start packing more than 12 hours before your holiday! Which I probably won’t be following… most importantly, choose your holiday partners wisely, and pack outfits for each day and night ideally with 2 extras in case you’re not in the mood for one of them.
