Wedding Wednesday: The Engagement Party

Engagement Tea Party – Saturday 19th September 2015 Last Saturday we held our engagement party at our house, we spent the day with around ...


What's in My Travel Toiletry Bag?

As I write this I'm in Yorkshire on a little holiday with my Mum, Nan and baby sister. We're here until Friday and it's been lovely so far, except for all that thunder! It's a bit scary when you're in a caravan. Anyway, I thought I'd show you all what I brought in my toiletry bag, and do a summary of what I've actually used! I forgot to take a picture of the actual bag itself but it's a Soap & Glory one from Christmas.

Skincare is what I packed most of, although I don't think I packed excessively. The L'Oreal Skin Perfection wipes aren't something I usually use but I thought they would be easier than bringing my Micellar Water and cotton pads with me. The Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream is something that I received in a Beauteco Box and I'm testing it out at the mo, so far so good. Cherry Carmex is a staple in my life, I love the stuff. The Garnier Moisture Match moisturiser is the one for dull skin and does a nice job of brightening my skin up. Finally the Ultrasun Facial SPF is a great base for makeup and keeps you protected too.

Body care is nice and simple, shower gel and body butter from The Body Shop's Coconut range and deodorant by Vaseline. I love the scent of Coconut, especially on holiday so this range is perfect. The body butter is lovely and moisturising and sinks in just quickly enough.

For hair just four products, I'm pretty relaxed with my hair care at home so I don't need to bring much for that. Argan Oil which I got from Primark, I actually really love this stuff - it's amazing at nourishing the dry ends of my hair in this warm weather. I use it when my hair is wet too so it dries a little bit less 'big'. It's also brilliant on chlorine damaged hair, so a must after visits to the pool. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle to deep condition my hair in the shower and make it silky smooth and tangle free, it also smells amazing. TIGI Bed Head Foxy Curls shampoo, again another amazing smelling product - it smells like sweets! I love this shampoo it makes my curly hair manageable and less frizzy. Score. Finally John Frieda Frizz Ease serum with heat protection for if I feel like blow drying my hair. I probably won't, but you never know.

I made sure to chuck a load of samples into the bag before I left, I find that being away encourages me to use up these little samples. I've included some skincare, haircare and body care samples and I'm looking forward to using them up.

So, what have I actually used?

The face wipes and my moisturiser. That's all. I've yet to wash my hair and I borrowed Mum's shower gel in the shower this morning. We're off swimming tomorrow so I'll be washing my hair then and I'm going to make a conscious effort to use some of the other products I've brought with me.

What do you take on holiday with you?

Do you use it all?

  1. I used to always have carmex lip balm! Must buy some more!


    1. It's my fave! The new lemon and lime one in the tube is amazing! Xx

  2. I love Carmex too. Its so nice and soothing on the lips. I a;so adore anything that smells of coconut - its my favourite scent. Reminds me of holiday.
    Samples are perfect for taking away, otherwise they seem to mount up & never get used.

    1. Coconut reminds me of holidays too! :) xx
