My Travel Skincare Bag

I never travel light, but I managed to keep things quite simple in terms of skincare when I was away for a week. Everything fitted into my Ted Baker Large Bow Wash Bag* and I was proud of myself for not taking my whole stash with me :) haha. 

For cleansing, I took the Ole Henriksen Truth To Go Wipes and Antipodes Grace Gentle Cleanser. I also used Benefit They're Real Remover for my eye makeup to make the task super easy. It is a real lifesaver for those who wear black liner and lots of mascara. 

My two toners/mists of choice for the week were Caudalie Beauty Elixir and Nourish Cooling Toning Mist*.  I used up both of them :) haha. For dealing with breakouts, I packed Skinbreeze Blemish Fix* and Origins Super Spot Remover. I use the first one on large areas like my neck and jawline and the latter on any active breakouts.

In the mornings, I was applying Eucerin Even Brighter Day Cream SPF30, followed by a tinted SPF and my regular makeup. To keep my skin happy and nourished at night time, I have been using the Marumaya Iconic Youth Serum* and Orico Vitamin Rich Face Oil* (not pictured).

I also packed some face masks and single sachets of face cream from Omorovicza, GlamGlow, a sample of Origins Drink Up Intensive and Skyn Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels*. I just love pampering, even when I am on holiday :) I used up all the sachets, the eye gels and half of the Origins mask.

Do you think I was sensible with my skincare choices or would you pack more/less? I think I did really well :)

  2. Some great products featured here! I love caudalie products and I'm still yet to try origins, I hear such great things about them. Lovely post x

  3. Great post! I love seeing what people take away with them, I guess I’m just nosey like that lol! I love the Ted Baker bag, so cute!! I’m off to Berlin in a few months, I think I may have to invest in the caudalie beauty elixir and the Skyn Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels, I’ve tried them before, but had completely forgotten about them…I think these are a must when I go away!

  4. You were very sensible taking Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser.

    Its blissfully soothing formulation features anti-inflammatory Vinanza Oxifend super-antioxidant, naturally extracted from pinot noir grapes from award-winning Marlborough vineyards. Nutrient-rich avocado oil and marigold flower gently yet effectively cleanse, freshen and soften your visage.

    Keep looking good while on holiday. #lovethelove

  5. I've been looking around for some new products to add in to my skincare and you've really inspired me,thank you!!

  6. I've only heard of a couple of these products, but GlamGlow is something I hope to try at some point, everyone is talking about them! Would you recommend it? :) xxx
