My Travel Skincare Essentials

Hello everyone ! Over the Christmas holidays I found myself packing my skincare again and again. By the last few times I was packing, I was a pro. I'd figured out exactly what was absolutely essential and what wasn't.

The first thing that I always bring is my cleansing oil. It is by far the easiest way to remove makeup. I use The Body Shop Camomile cleansing oil. It really is amazing at removing make up. Usually about three pumps is enough to cover my entire face, I simply message it in and use a cotton flannel to wipe it away.If you haven't tried this yet, I definitely recommend it to you.

I also bring the Garnier Micellar cleansing water with me as I don't always wear a full face of makeup. The micellar water is perfect for these days. It really is a magical product and one of my best beauty finds of 2014. It's very long lasting and really affordable.

I usually use the Lancome cleansing lotion in the morning. It's really cooling and always leaves my skin feeling super soft. It has a really nice scent to it as well but it's very subtle. I think this retails for about €27 but it's really worth it in my opinion. It lasts for about three months and never disappoints.

Another Lancome product that I think is an essential is the Bi-Facial Non-Oily Sensitive Eyes Instant Cleanser. This really is amazing. Although I swear by The Body Shop cleansing oil for my face, I always use the Lancome cleansing oil for my eyes. I find it less oily and actually removes eye makeup better.

After all my cleansing, I like top keep my skin hydrated with this Nivea moisturiser. It keeps my skin great condition. It's really good quality and very affordable. If you're looking for a new moisturiser then look no further, this is what you need.

 Last but by no means least, for my lips I always carry Carmex lip balm with me. I have quite a few different Carmex products but this is definitely my favourite. Its so small and compact that it fits perfectly in any size handbag. It really is the best lip balm I've tried. I get awful chapped lips during the Winter months and this little balm is a life saver ! I never leave home without it.

So that's what I bring with me every time I have to travel. I used to bring so much more but ended up not using half of it and just carrying it around. These are my absolute essentials. I hope you have enjoyed this post. I know I love reading what people bring with them on their travels.

What do you consider your travel skincare essentials ?

  2. I will definitely take some of these to Paris next week x

  3. Always have a lip balm with me, the one I use is cococare Cocoa Butter Lip Balm. I can only find it in the U.S. so pack a bundle of them whenever I'm over there to bring home with me.

    1. It's such an essential !! I've never tried that one, sounds lovely though !
