4 silly season beauty arsenal must-haves

’Tis the season to enjoy sun-filled beach days, Christmas shopping, and holiday parties. At Sporteluxe HQ, we love this time of year, but it also comes with plenty of indulgences. While we believe everything in moderation, sometimes it is all too easy to get caught up in the moment and often our body and skin pay the consequences. But don’t fret! We’ve scoured the shelves and found four beauty products that will get you through the holiday season with ease.

Shop our silly season must-haves:

Recovery skincare, Maple Soaps

Perfect for pre-party pamper

MAPLE Ylang Ylang and Vanilla Bean Soap $15.00

Not only is dry skin itchy and irritating, but it also doesn’t look crash hot either. And with party season upon us, we want to be looking and feeling great. That’s why we love MAPLE’s super chic pure botanical soaps, which are hand made in small batches using a combination of nourishing coconut oil, olive oil and shea butter. Fragranced with floral Ylang Ylang, and rich vanilla bean essential oil, this vegan and cruelty-free soap is a beautiful calming scent.

 Rodial, Recover skincare

Perfect for silly season recovery

Rodial Super Acids X-treme Hangover Mask $74. 99

We’ve all been there . . . in fact, many of us more than we’d like to admit. But when the wine is flowing during party season, it’s easy to drink too much and be merry. Not only does your body pay the consequences, but also your skin (hello, puffy eyes!) Enter: Rodial’s Hangover Mask. This triple action clay mask deeply cleanses, exfoliates and restores skin to reveal a more radiant looking complexion. So even if you’re not feeling fabulous, you’ll certainly look it.

Aveda shampure

Perfect for transforming limp locks

Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo $30.00

Have you been burning the candle at both ends, with no spare time to wash and blow-dry your hair as much as you’d like? Luckily, Aveda’s new dry shampoo is here to the rescue. There’s no denying that it does one hell of a job refreshing limp, lack-lustre stands, but what really makes it stand out from the crowd is the calming aroma of twenty-five pure flower and plant essences, which will leave your locks smelling freshly shampooed.

Luk, natural lip stick

Perfect for kissable lips 

Luk Beautifood Lip Nourish Natural Lipstick $24.95

Whether you’re standing under the mistletoe or waiting for the clock to strike midnight on NYE nothing ruins the mood quite like chapped lips. That’s why we adore this 100% toxin-free lip balm, which is made from real health foods including nourishing avocado oil and cocoa butter. This cool pink shade, in particular, is a winner offering a sheer wash of colour for a luscious pout. Pucker up!
