Crazy as it sounds, I love packing for holidays! When it comes to it, I like keeping my travel beauty bag as simple as I possibly can, taking only those products that are necessary (though not always successfully, but I do my best). Here’s what I’m taking with me this time.
Skin care: Primavera Revitalizing Starter Kit with rose and pomegranate (the first three items on the left): cleansing cream, toner, and nourishing cream. I haven’t tried these yet, but since it’s a revitalizing kit for dry/mature skin type, I think it will be ideal for gentle skin cleansing and nourishment. EOS Blueberry Acai Lip Balm is my current favorite EOS lip balm, which smells absolutely amazing. Mary Elizabeth Spearmint and Tea Tree Nurture Balm is always handy to have when traveling. Since this balm can be used on lips, nails, hands, feet, and heels, I’m definitely taking it with me.
Hair & body: Desert Essence Red Raspberry Shampoo – I would consider taking a volumizing shampoo, but this shampoo gives shine and gloss without making the roots flat, so I figured it will be perfect for holidays. John Masters Organics Bare Detangler can be used as a rinse out or leave-in conditioner, so this multitasker is going to be in my travel bag. John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Wash (travel size) – oh that scent..! Lavera Repair & Care Hair Serum – I always carry this hair serum with me in my handbag. It’s good for fighting frizz and giving the hair sleekness. PiperWai Natural Deodorant – not much left of this sample, it leaves my armpits nicely scented and fresh. John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk (sample).
Makeup: Logona Volume Mascara is a lovely mascara for the no-fuss makeup. Terre d’Oc BB Cream – I prefer BB creams or tinted moisturizers for my holiday makeup routine just because I don’t like spending much time getting my makeup done but still, have a smooth and glowing skin. Lily Lolo Natural Lip Gloss in English Rose – it’s easy to tell from the package that this lip gloss has been in my handbag for a long time. It’s easy to apply, smells nice, and provides a lovely color. Everyday Minerals Jojoba Base Powder in Shell Blanc (mini-size jar) – another handbag essential. It’s a perfect match for my skin tone and is handy for touch-ups during the day. Benecos Natural Blush in Mallow Rose – definitely coming with me.
See you soon!
