Travel Essentials – Part 1
The next couple of days we are spending in London for my birthday (it is official: I am not in my 20s anymore). For me any kind of vacation includes lots of planning and for a weekend trip (2-4 days) even more – after all you do not want to bring your whole closet (or makeup supply) for such an occasion.
I therefore have a little box at home where I collect mini-bottles of my favorite beauty products in order to not having to bring all of my full-size products. I thought it would be interesting for you to see what I take with me when travelling:
Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo // Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Conditioner // L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil // Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild
After the shower:
Bath & Bodyworks Warm Vanilla Sugar Bodylotion // Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 // Dove Grapefruit & Lemongrass Deodorant // Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment // Colgate Toothpaste
Bumble & Bumble Texture Cream // Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray // OSIS Extreme Hold Hairspray // Moroccanoil Hair Oil
Sephora Express Cleansing Whipes // Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover // Origins Super Spot Remover // Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus // Origins GinZeng Eyecream // NUXE Lip Balm
This is it for my daily beauty routine when I go traveling. As you can see there are still some full-size products included. I have for example also some little pots I could but my face lotion inside and I have some travel size samples from Clinique I could use instead.
However my face lotion is almost empty anyway so why exchange that, right? I am checking in a suitcase anyway so no need for going 50ml only. And I also would probably cut down on hair products should I only be able to take a carry on.
What do you like to take travelling and are you refilling or do you buy mini sizes?
