eat your way through Canberra or soak up vitamin D in Noosa, we've got your beauty loot sorted. Scroll for 12 Spring holiday beauty items we can't live without!
Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk, $8.99
Know this: when it comes to Spring weekenders, one can of dry shampoo will take you further than your regular wash and condition routine. This little guy will refresh next-day hair, add texture and volume in a pinch and save you precious holiday time and packing space (which is more than we can say about those big, bulky shampoo and conditioner bottles that will probably spill in your bag anyway).

O Cosmedics Mineral Pro SPF 30+ Sheer Tint, $47
We don't have to tell you how important it is to wear SPF everyday. If you've been wanting to switch to physical sunscreen but find the texture off-putting, this tinted zinc oxide version is for you! Unlike other physical sunscreens, the mineral formula glides on smooth and seamlessly blends into skin, without leaving a filmy residue.
