When travelling there is nothing worse than taking full sized everything with you. This is when all those samples come in handy to save on luggage space not to mention the weight! I have selected a huge range of sachets to take with me to the US for a week.
Here is what I will be packing in terms of beauty products.
Make up remover - Biore cleansing gel removes everything even the water proof mascara's I use and I am fairly generous when it comes to removal so I will be taking the whole bottle with me. Sometimes to ensure I remove everything around my eyes I use it again around the eye area. This must be my 5th bottle its so so good and cheap drug store product.
Cleanse - La Roche Posay cleansing gel used with my clarisonic. I do the double cleanse so I usually use this to finish off. Again for cleansers I like to stick with what I like and this is at a reasonable price even if do use it up quickly. I tend to pick this up when boots offer 3 for 2 and stock up.
Serum - SkinFood avocado serum is my new favourite its cream / gel based formula and it just sinks into my skin.
Day / Night cream - these are the samples I received in my xmas gift box set here.
Eye cream - Jurlique sample yet to try out.
Face masks - Tony Moly over night sleep masks samples / ESPA skin radiance mask read about my facial experience with them here. SkinFood black sugar wash off mask - looking forward to trying out this sample.
Shower Gel - Bath & Body Works sugar plum dream travel bottle I received in my beauty swap here.
Perfume - Moschino Toy the teddy bear pack is a perfume sample I picked up at selfridges before xmas. It's a refreshing scent to carry around and the perfume is actually inside a teddy bear - too cute!
Body Cream - Hotel Chocolate I received from a blog meet up.
Hair - only taking bumble bumble straight blow try received this at an even so I have not tested it out.
This may seem a lot but during the course of the week each sample will be used up and thrown away so the only products I will be bringing back is Biore cleansing gel, La Roche Posay cleansing gel, Lancome day / night cream and SkinFood serum.
What do you think....do you think I can condense this down further? I did think to buy bottles for the cleansing oil and gel but I don't think the bottles will last me a whole week, I am rather generous when it comes to pumping out the products.
If you have any travel tips please do share!!!!!
