What’s in my travel bag (skincare and makeup)

I have just returned from long weekend in Sydney chasing the Manchester United FC with my hubby (He is a BIG fan. He even made me memorize their names and number and pick my favourite player). We flew over from Auckland on Friday morning. By morning I mean 5am in the morning (which requires us to be at the airport at 3am) and flew back on Monday night.

I am usually an over-packer. I pack more than I need. When I travel I like to bring samples or travel sized products rather than put my usual skincare in little bottles and tubs because that way, I don’t have to carry so much with me. That goes for makeup as well.

Here’s what I bought with me for this trip! Please note that I am showing the full sized items of some of the products.

1. DermaLab Gentle cleansing body and face cleanser. 2. DermaLab Stay Hydrated Body Moisturiser. 3. Dr Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass Body oil. 4. Joico K-PAK Deep Penetrating Reconstructor.

There are a few items that I was glad that I took with me: Laneige Perfect Renewal essence and night treatment – very hydrating even in a fully air-conditioned room for a full night. Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation – great for travelling when you are out and about for long hours and you can’t be bothered touching up all the time. Elf Brow Set – I mainly used the powder side because it doubles up as a nose contour. Bobbi Brown brow pencil – Soooo pigmented! Body Shop liquid eyeliner – stays on and does not run for the entire day! Loreal Double Extensions Beauty Tubes Mascara – love this mascara, no panda eyes for my oily lids! Lucas Papaw Ointment – my fav all rounder lip balm, elbow balm, heel balm, etc. Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain – love the 2 colours I took with me. Dr Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass Body Oil – Helped my body so much with the dry air-conditioned room.

I’ll be travelling long-haul to Hong Kong and another Asia destination (yet to be decided) early 2014 for about 4 weeks and my packing will be different! I’ll be doing another travel bag post then! 🙂

Thank you for reading! See you again soon! xoxo
