Before you jet off on your next getaway, here’s everything you’ll need…

Ahead of any sun holiday, there’s a lot of last-minute shopping to be done.

You’ll probably need to stock up on refills for all your everyday beauty, skincare and SPF essentials, and maybe treat yourself to some brand new products too.

Thankfully, has everything you need to re-stock your beauty bag ahead of your next holiday. From glowy self-tan and skincare to essential SPF protection, Next has over 500 beauty and fashion brands leaving you spoiled for choice during your next holiday shop.

With that in mind, here are some essentials you’ll need to stock up on before you jet off…

Self Tan Bed Sheet Protector – €26

If you’re guilty of spending hours scrolling through TikTok looking for the latest trending products, you’ve probably come across this one online before. Next’s Self Tan Sheet Protector can be used to cover your pillows and bed sheets so you can avoid any annoying stains while you’re tanning overnight.

The product went viral earlier this year for helping us to evade those pesky stains any regular self-tan user will be very familiar with. It’s also ideal for any holidays you’ve got planned as it helps ensure you don’t make a mess in your hotel or Air B&B this summer.

NX Glow Ultimate Tan Kit – €34

Speaking of tan, we’re sure you’re looking to stock up on a couple extra bottles of your favourite self-tan brand before you jet off.

Next is the perfect one-stop-shop for all your tanning needs this summer, stocking some of the biggest brands including Bondi Sands, St Moriz, ICONIC and loads more. This all-in-one set includes tanning mousse, a tanning glove, body scrub and body butter – what more could you need!?

Origins Love and Glow GinZing – €57

If you’re jetting off in search of some winter sun, do your skin a favour and come prepped with a range of hydrating and glowy skincare products. Next stocks loads of top skincare brands including The Ordinary, Pixi, Clinique and Elemis to name but a few, so you really are spoiled for choice.

This radiance-boosting set from Origins is the perfect pairing for your next sun holiday. Packed with a face wash, brightening serum, eye cream and gel moisturiser, this set will boost your skin with up to 72 hours of hydration and help you create that perfect summertime glow.

ELEMIS Daily Defence Shield SPF30 – €53

When it comes to packing for a trip away, SPF is one of the most important products in your suitcase. Even if you’re not heading on a sun holiday, you should really be wearing SPF everyday to give your skin the best protection from UVA and UVB rays, and to prevent unwanted skin damage and aging.

The right combination of face and body sun protection is key and thankfully, Next stock a huge range of top SPF brands such as Elemis, Ultrasun, Clinique and Australian Gold. If you’re on the hunt for an effective, non-greasy face SPF that works as the perfect base for make-up, we’d recommend this smooth and hydrating option from Elemis.
