What’s in my travel skincare bag

Beauty

Over the Easter Holiday I am taking a quick trip to Genoa in Italy, I will only be taking carry on baggage so I have narrowed down my skincare into this lovely travel toiletry bag from Pixi*. 

In the top section I have included 3 masks, 2 sheet masks and one liquid mask. I chose to pack the Pixi Glow Mud Mask* as I figured this one will be the most helpful incase I get breakouts whilst away. I then have packed two sheets masks, one from Pixi* and one from Soap and Glory. These will be really helpful to my skin both nights I am away as they will provide my skin with extra hydration, especially after flying. 

As for the rest of my skincare I have been really fortunate and been sent loads of Dermalogica minis which are the perfect size for traveling. I use Dermalogica on a daily basis, so it’s really nice to be able to take them on holiday with me as well to keep to a routine. I have packed the Pre Cleanse, Special Ceansing Gel and Microfoliant* as these are my night time staples. I have then been able to decant some of my larger Pixi Glow Tonix* into a smaller bottle so I can still use my regular toner. And then for the creams and serums, I have just picked out a selection from Dermalogica* which I will try out over there.

March Favourites

Beauty

My first favourite is the Pixi Glow Tonic* which was kindly sent to me, and is personalised! I have been using this every night since the beginning of the year and love it, I feel this has really helped my skin, preventing breakouts and even the texture. 

As for my favourite scent, I am obsessed with the new fragrance from Ariana Grande, Cloud*. I was sent this back in January and have worn it pretty much everyday, I get so many compliments about it and everyone seems shocked when I tell them what it is. 

On my eyes I have been loving the Colourpop x Zoella liquid shadow in the shade OG. It is a so so pigmented and it looks so pretty all over your lid. I have also been loving the liquid matte lipstick in the shade @me, this is a really nice pinky nude. I also really love the formula of this and wish I got it in the red. 

Face make up I have been loving is the Thin Lizzy foundation*, this is one of the best foundations I have ever used and it has so sadly ran out now, but it made my skin look great and was really long lasting. I recently ran out of my go-to primer so I decided to pick up a more affordable one from Makeup Revolution, considering it was only £6 I would say its very similar to Benefit Porefessional. 

Getting ready in the morning has been made so much nicer with my LUNA London mirror* which was kindly gifted to me, I love that it is a larger compact size, perfect for travelling and has a super zoomed mirror to get those close up images. 

Another scent I have been loving is from Superdrug, I picked this up in the January sales and I couldn’t recommend it enough. For such a cheap scent it smells amazing and it really reminds me of the Jo Malone scents.

I have also been using a face peel from Ecooking*, the first time I used it I got a little (very) worried a my whole face went bright red which looked like a sunburn, but it settled down, and I tried it again a few days later. I love using this a few times a week to help resurface my face and help with the tone of my skin.

And lastly, my go to skincare product which has made a huge impact on my skincare is the Radiance Oil from Freshly Cosmetics*. I use this everynight on my face and it has helped my skin so much, I have visibly less scars now!

Pixi LOVE

Beauty

You know that moment when you see everyone on Instagram receiving amazing PR packages and you just keep wishing and hoping that one day that might turn up on your doorstep… well it did! I was absolutely blown away by the generosity of Pixi Beauty, and it totally made my weekend receiving all this in one day.

Skincare is my ride or die, I live for it, and when it’s as pretty as this it’s hard not too! I received the WHOLE of the Pixi Beauty Rose range. I had only ever tried the rose toner previous to this so I was 
utterly taken back when I saw that I now owned ALL of this. Not only all of the products, but 
the beautiful travel bag it all came in! I am 100% taking this away with me on every holiday 
from now as it I love it. 
This bag contains everything, from make up wipes, toners, spritz, moisturisers and balms, it is just full of so many gems!
On the same day I also received a box of their new eye shadow palettes and three brushes! The shades are perfect and so pigmented. My favourite palette is the bottom one, containing the warmer shades. i love wearing the middle third row and the left third row down on their own, just for a pop of colour.

Thank you so much Pixi! ❤

The ultimate glow from Pixi Beauty

Beauty

On Christmas Eve this amazing surprise arrived from Pixi Beauty, I had no idea it was on its way and I had no idea that I was even worthy of receiving it! But this package in itself is a great way to finish the year off!

The Pixi Glow Tonic has been my go to toner for a couple of years now, I have experimented with other glycolic timers but I always come back to this one. It’s very gentle on your skin but you can definitely noticed the difference when you use it. I find it very good to use when I am having a bad breakout as exfoliates the skin and dries up my spots.

This is a massive 200ml of the toner, which is also personalised! I have never had a skincare or make or product with my name of it before so this is pretty out of this world. I am beyond grateful for this huge bottle of glorious glow and cannot wait to use it throughout 2019.

I want to say a huge thank you to Pixi Beauty for sending me this xx
