Desert Island Beauty Bag: What Would Jennifer Rock Bring?

Desert Island Beauty Bag: What Would Jennifer Rock Bring?

Entrepreneur and IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards nominee, Jennifer Rock, is going on a hypothetical trip to a beautiful desert island. She can bring as many or as few beauty products as she likes – providing they don’t exceed her €100 budget! So what will The Skin Nerd choose?

IMAGE Prevention+ Daily Matte Moisturiser SPF 32, €46

“SPF is the number one beauty product you’d need on a desert island, where you’d be exposed to the blazing sun all day. IMAGE Prevention+ Matte is my personal favourite.” This is a broad spectrum SPF, providing protection from both UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, your skin’s thickest layer, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. UVB rays, on the other hand, usually burn the top layers of your skin and play a key role in the development of skin cancer. By using this multifunctional SPF, Jen’s protecting her skin in the best way she can. Plus, the oil-free matte finish means that sand won’t stick to her face. What more could you want?

Environ Vita EssentiA AVST Moisturiser, €54

“Environ Vita EssentiA AVST Moisturiser is a topical vitamin A serum. Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin, but the body’s supply of it can be depleted by sun exposure – so it’s an easy choice! I didn’t choose a cleanser because I have a trusty Cleanse Off Mitt stashed on my person at all times anyway.” The antioxidants in this product will help Jen achieve a beautiful, radiant look without the harmful, glare of the sun – so she can relax in the shade of a palm tree all day long!

Total spend €100, right on budget! (Jen says: “It’s purely a coincidence that it hits €100 exactly!”).

But, as we all know, beauty isn’t everything. So if Jennifer could bring just one additional luxury item, she’d like it to be her child – “Is he a luxury item?!” she asks. If other people don’t count, she says, “I’d bring my iPhone. It’s my little temple of secrets – I’d have to come up with a way to charge it but where there’s a will…”

Last week on Desert Island Beauty Bag, Indy Power from The Little Green Spoon revealed what she’d bring with her on a desert island trip!
