So I'm currently whizzing down the motorway on my way to Brighton for a mini holiday with the pugs, two friends & their two pugs (pug holiday!!) & I decided to be organised for once by taking photos of all the beauty bits I've packed in my toiletry travel bag. I've also got a Makeup Travel Bag post planned too so keep an eye out for that in the next couple of days!
I don't know about you but I like to be surrounded by all of my favourite things when I'm away from home, it makes me feel less uneasy about being in a new place. I also really like buying mini versions of my most loved beauty items if possible, if not I will decant products into travel friendly sized bottles & pots.
I've been really good at keeping to my skincare routine recently so I wanted to make sure I'd be able to continue this. I try to save up mini magazine freebies etc for times like this, I knew my little Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish would come in handy soon! It's my all time favourite cleanser, it works well on my skin & I know I can rely on it which is ideal when you're away from home.. nobody wants to have an allergic reaction on holiday! I'm also pretty fussy with haircare products as my hair is quite unmanageable I need good quality shampoo & conditioner that can keep it in decent condition so the MoroccanOil Travel Kit is perfect. I swear by using MoroccanOil after every hair wash to keep moisture locked in.
Pocket sized perfumes are also much more of a safe option to travel with rather than lugging big bottles around that could easily get damaged. As much as I'd love to take my full sized perfumes, theres really no need to as it's not like I'll use an entire bottle in a couple of days! I have a few different Marc Jacob Minis so I've packed two incase I feel like wearing a different perfume I've got options.
Obviously I pack the necessities like my toothbrush, toothpaste & deodorant but they aren't as fun to photograph & it's pretty obvious everyone takes those things! (:
What essentials do you pack when you're off on holiday?
