Products I took away with me & Loved

When I go away I like to pack a mixture of old favourites and products I have never tried, I realise this is a little risky but it forces you to try products you never have before. These five products are a mixture of old favourites and new found loves…

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh
I’ve had this perfume for a few years now and I am so glad I decided to take it away with me. The smell reminds me of summer like not much else can and it’s just the perfect light scent for a hot summers day.

Weleda Skin Food
I really needed my tan to last 5 days with absolutely no uneven fading which is why I committed to this morning and evening. It hydrated my skin like nothing else could and although it is a little heavy it left my skin looking great all day!

Halo Eye Makeup Remover Pads ยฃ1.50
I’m not going to start using these on a day-to-day basis but for travelling these are absolutely essential. I didn’t want to take my eye makeup remover and cotton pads as the bottle is big and I didn’t want to run the risk of it spilling. These pre-soaked pads worked perfectly and removed all my eye makeup quickly and efficiently although they took up minimal space in my wash bag.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Nourishing Lip Balm
This is a new product which I really enjoyed using to keep my lips soft and moisturised, I also didn’t back a cuticle oil so it doubled up as that!

Rodial Instaglam Skin Tint in Medium
I threw this in last minute and wasn’t sure I would get much use out of it but as the weather was so warm I decided to switch a base that was a little lighter than a foundation. It applies beautifully with the fingers and offered a good enough coverage without seeing too heavy on the skin. It worked beautifully on my dry skin and lasted most of the day with a light powdering. Only downside is it’s a rather expensive ยฃ45.

    I really want to try the Elizabeth Arden lip balm! Also, I've been wanting to purchase the Marc Jacobs fragrance but am torn between purchasing it in the full sized or a rollerball size. I love the full size one for the beautiful bottle but in reality, I would use the rollerball size more often because I could just throw it in my bag. Ah, decisions, decisions… ๐Ÿ™‚

    The best thing about hols for me is trying out all my samples and minis – I never get around to it otherwise! I recently fell in love with the Ren Rosa Centafolia after using the mini on holiday ๐Ÿ™‚

    Such a good idea to take both old and new products with you. I tend to neglect trying new things out when Im at home but if you are away you have no choice. There are no alternatives for you to use!
