My Travel Beauty Essentials

While this post goes live, I’ll be on a plane, high above, on my way to Mexico! So I thought it was just right, I’d talk you through my travel beauty essentials.

The Face Creams

Can’t leave my creams behind, can I?! Especially with all the sun I’ll be getting, my face needs to stay hydrated and healthy. First up it’s my face serum “Soap and Glory – make yourself youthful”. Apart from smelling lovely, it gives my face the vitamins and a nice boost in the morning. Now, lately I’ve been using my Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream again, as it’s just amazing. For my dear eyes I have my Soap and Glory “make yourself youthful ” eye cream.

The Makeup

I could have shown you my whole makeup bag, but these wouldn’t be my travel beauty essentials right? What I’ll be using most days will be my beloved Benefit Hoola bronzer and my new fave mascara “Better than Sex” from Too Faced. Oh and my Benefit “high beam” highlighter. What can I tell you – I love my highlighters and this one is just goals! Glides on so smoothly and the tiniest amount gives you a beautiful glow.

I have to take my red lipsticks with me. Even if I’m just gonna wear them once or twice on my holiday. My all-time faves are Nars Cruella and Tom Ford Cherry Lush. Both matte and the most beautiful reds!

The Perfume

You need to take a perfume with you, right?! I got myself two new fragrances last week from Jo Malone. They obviously smell amazing and complement each other very well. Peony & Blush Suede is more on the sweet side. Wood Sage & Sea Salt balances it out with it’s rather fresh scent! If you haven’t tried Jo Malone I seriously recommend them.

The Sun Screens

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a pretty pale lady. So the only thing that will be going on my skin is sunscreen 50+. I got those two sunscreens from m lovely friend over at the beauty magazine I write for and I’m excited to try them out. Especially the face sunscreen, I’ve been a fan of Clarins, so I think it will be great!

So these are my travel beauty essentials. Obviously there are still my hair care things and some other bits and bobs that I’ll be taking with me traveling but if I had to limit myself, these would be the products that have to come with me!

How about you? Are there any products you can’t spare when on holiday?

    The peony and blush suede sounds like such a pretty fragrance from Jo Malone! I always make sure I pack plenty of lipbalm because my lips always get so dry after flights!

      I love my new fragrances and oh yes the lipbalm that’s what was missing! But gladly my bf took some with him and it saved my lips!
