When going on holiday I always find skincare the hardest thing to pack, I want to take products for every eventuality just to be prepared. This is everything I am taking away with me for 7 nights…
First up, how adorable is this toiletry bag that Bella and Bear gifted me, it’s the perfect size I think for just enough products. Because it divides into 2 big compartments on the inside it is perfect to keep products separate. The way I have packed is by dividing my day and night products, the top compartment has my day products and the bottom has my evening products. I find this is a really good organisational tactic as it is then so easier to find what your looking for.
Day Time Skincare
I’m not going to go into depth about specifically what I’m taking because this will take me forever to write, but I have packed a cleanser and a konjac sponge for the mornings to refresh my skin. I have also packed a gentle toner along with cotton rounds, I also have a day detox spray from Arkana which is travel sized so I have packed that although I’m not sure it will last the week.
As for moisturiser I have packed loads of minis, I figured this would be the perfect time to test them all out and use them up. One particular brand you will notice stands out in the photo above is Doris Wagner Navi, the gorgeous pink and orange packaging is a holiday must have! There is a wash, pore balm and day moisturiser which I will be testing out.
Of course I have packed a face and lip spf because we all gotta use protection against the sun!
I then went through a bit of a panic stage “what if I don’t have enough moisturisers!”, so I decided to pack these little samples, I then figured that these would actually be really hand to keep in my beach/pool bag incase my skin needs a retouch. These are also great for flights to apply half way if your on a long flight.
Night Time Skincare
For my evening skincare I have packed wipes as my initial remover, then I will follow with a cleanser. The toner I will be using in the evening is the Glycolic Pads from Superdrug, these are really hand for travel as they are so much lighter than carrying liquid.
I have packed hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate my skin whilst I sleep along with another serum which I’m sure wont last more than a couple of days. I have then packed sample sizes of night creams along with an eye cream.
Masking is my favourite part of my skincare routine so I decided to pack a few.
I chose to pack Alya Skin Pink Clay mask as my skin is loving it right now, I decanted some of the product into a old small Lush pot and it fits perfectly in the bag (but it didn’t look pretty, that’s why there is not photo of it).
I then had to pack two Garnier tissue masks, because, why not! They really are my favourite masks and I was lucky enough to be sent these.
I have also been sent the Kokostar masks to try out and I figured what better place to try them than on holiday. The cherry blossom mask looks pretty cool so keep an eye out on my Instagram for photos and a review of them!
And lastly I thought I would pack the Nivea Moisture Mask just incase I run out of my other evening moisturisers.
The question is, will I use everything I’ve packed? How much do you take with you on holiday?
