Products Left Behind

Somehow I managed to pack my beauty products for a month all into a few toiletry and cosmetic bags but I tried to be good. In the perfect world I would take 6 foundations, 20 lipsticks, 5 suncreams (all in different factors), 2 hair masks and so much more just so I had options.

However sadly that wasn’t an option so somethings did get left behind. Not because I don’t love them and didn’t want to take them but simply because I was trying to be good, not pack too much and somethings simply came in packaging and bottles that are too big and heavy!

Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Body Butter, £10.50 I used this all of last summer meaning the scent reminds me of summer however I’ve had to settle for only after suns as they’re more essential and they’ll do what this can do and more but sadly won’t smell quite as good.

Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation, I decided this was going to be my summer foundation however I realised that this bottle was pretty much finished and after looking through my foundation drawer I also noticed that I couldn’t justify buying yet another foundation. I’ve packed a few other favourites instead but you’ll have to come back further into my holiday to find out which ones.

Hugo Boss Ma Vie Pour Femme, This would have been a perfect everyday perfume but I simply couldn’t give up the other one I chose and I’m trying to be good and not take 4 perfumes (because 3 is so much better!) If you are looking for a nice great summer day perfume this is my most recent favourite discovery.

L’Occitane Tonic Body Oil, £35 I’m sure this would have been the perfect oil to hydrate and also give a nice sheen to my skin but I packed so many clothes that I had to leave this out. I love the pump which makes it easy to apply but the packaging isn’t the lightest.

Jurlique Rosewater Facial Spray, I’ve raved about this lots over the last few weeks but if this was a little smaller and lighter it would have been the first product in my skincare bag.

Aussie Beach Mate, £4.99 I’ll probably regret not packing this as a 3 minute mask is the perfect amount of time to help give sun drenched hair a little TLC but once again it’s a little on the large side so I’ve chosen to pack sample sizes.

What product do you wish you could take on holiday but aren’t the most travel friendly?
