Five Travel Skincare Essentials



I’ve always been pretty good at packing and travelling fairly light, aside from my beauty stash, but 2015 is the year where I really got my travel beauty routine down. My routine is fairly minimal anyway, but when it comes to a short city break, these are the only five products I’ll ever need with me…


Why take Micellar water and cotton pads when you can take wipes! These have saved me so many times when I forgot to bring cotton pads with me, so now I only travel with these instead. They’re super fuss free and don’t make my skin feel parched after use. With all of the time I’ll be spending in hotels during December these will be my saviour! 


Don’t panic, it actually comes in a much larger tub than this! This is my sample pot that I take with me everywhere when I stay away from home. I highly recommend asking for samples of your favourite cleanser or decanting your favourite where ever possible. My skin relies heavily on routine, so keeping my cleanser consistent is so important to me. When I travel it’s often for events and parties, so having this to double (and often triple) cleanse with is so important as my makeup is often pretty heavy! 


A dreamy toner/serum combo that helps to clear up my unhappy skin – on months where I spend a lot of time away from home my diet isn’t always the best. By “isn’t always” I mean “is never”. I couldn’t be a jet setter permanently or my face would be a mess most of the time, but for the few days where my skin might have an unhappy moment this helps to dry up any new friends that might appear and generally keeps spots at bay. 


My all time favourite moisturiser just so happens to come in the worlds most travel friendly packaging, so this one is a no brainer really. It soothes angry skin and hydrates without feeling greasy or too rich. *gives round of applause*


The holy grail lip balm – this one may be a little heavy in terms of packaging, but in times of need (usually post party where I’ve been wearing something very matte and long lasting) this is my dry lip saviour. If you ever invest in a high end lip balm, make it this one.

    I always take the Nuxe lip balm travelling too. It's the best for soothing chapped lips and makes a good lipstick primer as well! xx

    Makeup remover wipes are such a necessity when travelling, especially on planes! I also decant pretty much everything – my cleanser, moisturiser, sunscreen – so I'm forever labelling things. Great selection of products 🙂

    During travel utmost skincare is needed as there are more chances of acne and pimples due to dust. Travel kit must constitute all the eaasential skin care products for proper cleanup and moisturization.

    I am here to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for over 9 years and we had two kids. thing were going well with us and we where always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treated me and the kids. later that month he did not come back home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted traditional spell hospital for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he casted on him that make him come back to me. my family and i are now happy again. Thank you Dr. Aluta for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. He cast spells for different purposes
