Don’t miss your chance to bag a luxury holiday… plus, a top-to-toe suncare kit from La Roche-Posay could be yours

A fabulous trip to the Maldives

Belinda Carlisle was right; heaven is a place on Earth! Say hello to idyllic Noonu Atoll in the Maldives archipelago, where we had the good fortune to shoot the covers and beauty stories for our summer issues (including Soak Up Summer in this issue).


Don’t get too jealous, though – we’ve arranged for one lucky reader and their guest to win a seven-night (full-board) stay at the beautiful Sun Siyam Iru Fushi resort, where you can enjoy meals at the Iru Restaurant – from Maldivian specialities to homemade pizza and pasta, you’re covered.


By day, the island’s idyllic beaches, tropical gardens and crystal-clear turquoise lagoons beckon, while come evening you’ll kick back in a beach-front villa. And if you tire of nature, head to the on-site spa! Bliss.


The closing date for all entries is midnight on 29 August 2017. Return flights and transfers to the resort are included. With thanks to Visit Maldives.

We all forget things when we go away – our team included! So they jotted down their Maldives must-haves to jog their memories


Editor Helen says:

‘Contact lenses can be a travel faff – last year, I left my solution behind and had to wear glasses all holiday (note to self: humidity + specs = disaster). But the Bausch & Lomb Biotrue Flight Pack, £6.49/649 points (2x60ml), changes everything. This kit has two travel lens cases, two bottles of solution and, most importantly, an airport security-approved zip-lock bag. It’s now the first thing I pack in my hand luggage.’


Beauty Director Donna says:

‘You’d think a beauty director would remember essentials such as make-up remover and cotton-wool pads. But I never do! This time, I’m setting a reminder on my phone to buy Garnier SkinActive Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water, £5.99/599 points (400ml), and Botanics Organic Fairtrade Cotton Oval Cosmetic Pads Boots Exclusive £2.25/225 points (50-pack), at the airport.’


Group Art Director Darren says:

‘I never forget a single piece of my work kit (camera, tablet, mobile), but then manage to leave my toothbrush behind! To save having to beg for one at reception, I now have a Boots Travel Toothbrush Case, £3.50/350 points, sitting in my wash bag all year round. Even though it doesn’t actually contain a toothbrush, at least it helps to remind me that I need to pack one!’

Another great giveaway!
