Just packed a wash bag for a weeks worth of holiday, and very grateful for all my little beauty samples.
Beauty routines on holiday
It is no secret that I like to keep my beauty routines simple, but effective. My personal style is travelling light. Only absolute essentials make it through a ruthless editing process. My sister packs everything and the kitchen sink, her beauty bag weighs more than her youngest child. I guess we all have our style…
The Travel Beauty Bag
My style is minimal and light, so you can imagine my delight, when the lovely people at byTerry gave me this little pink, travel wash bag, filled with skin care samples. I was in ecstasy! Generous Sample sizes: my favourite day cream, restorative night cream, lip balm, even the serum, (which I don’t normally use)- just enough for a few days travel. I decanted some rose balm cleanser, a few cotton pads and some lavender essential oil. (I never go anywhere without lavender essential oil, helps with insomnia and is highly disinfectant – magic!) I skipped the specialist eye cream and the body moisturisers, I decided the hotel goodies will do just as well and will be fun to use.
Added my toothbrush- and It all fits in nicely in the freebie washbag – hardly takes any room at all. Result!
Packing for a destination
Of course, what One packs beauty wise, very much depends on the destination. Hot climate or cold climate? Skiing holidays need heavy weight sunblock, SPF and hydrating après ski masques. Beach holidays need high SPF and protective hair masques. (Am I the only one whose hair frazzled in the sun & sea?) city holidays require a little bit more polish, and impeccable make up. Solid sticks and cushion compacts are good travel choices.
One can also buy those little, unbelievably cute, decanter containers, but truthfully, I just tend to pack the free samples I get given. Or buy a few mini sizes as needed.
