By no stretch of the imagination would I consider myself a travel junkie. However, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to jetting off a good few times over the last couple of months. I recently went on three different holidays in the space of four months – I know, crazy! And although my bank account hasn’t been very forgiving. I have to say, I’ve been learning how to embrace the meaning of ‘travel light!’
While my travel destination normally determines which beauty products I decide to seal into my little plastic bag. The one thing I noticed about my last few holidays is that there were three products in particular that made a reoccurring appearance in handbag.Now,I feel obliged to pop these little gems at the top of my travel beauty essentials list!
Declare Cleansing Powder*200ml, €24.40, Meagherspharmacy.ie
After using this product for the first time, I wondered why more brands didn’t use a similar formula for their cleansers. Not only does this cleansing powder save you from worrying about any leakages. But it also gives you more room to put other liquids into your plastic bag! Between roll-on deodorants, sprays and perfumes, things can get a little crammed! I have a travel size cleanser at home so it makes it even handier for me. But even putting a small amount of this powder into a plastic travel container and straight into your handbag can make the world of a difference! To read more about this product, have a look at my June favourites post.
M accessories Loofah/Hemp face mitt (Bath set €1.50), Dealz
While I do enjoy pampering myself with my Clarisonic. Sometimes I think it’s just best to go back to basic skin care! These loofah/hemp mitts are incredibly gentle on the skin and they each do an absolute stellar job at removing dry and flaky skin insofar that I would sometimes use a wet mitt alone to clean my face – it leaves my skin with a smooth texture even when I just use water! This set comes with a large bath glove and then two smaller mitts that have a strap at the back. The natural fibres of these mitts makes it a perfect breeding ground for lurking bacteria. So it is important to replace your sponge every three weeks. At €1.50 a set, it’s impossible to break the bank!
Sonic Chic Lady Lace Toothbrush* (Gift Set RRP€39.95), Pharmacies Nationwide
I’ve had an obsession with having pearly for as long as I can remember. I just think that there’s something about a good set of teeth that helps brighten up the face! So if you’re an obsessive like myself. Or if you’re someone who is constantly on the go, then having one of these would come in handy! In this set you get a cute little toiletry bag, 1 AAA battery, and 5 replacement heads – which I thought was more than just a little bit generous! While I’m no expert in the technology behind this product, I do know that SONIC Chic vibrates at 22,000 strokes per minutes meaning it would probably reduce your job by more than half! It’s a great size and I love the little protective cap ! While this design is a limited edition, you can still get the full set for half price (€19.95) in selected online stores!
I hope you enjoyed my post, and if you have any golden travel products, I would love to know what they are! Tweet me anytime @FilomenaKaguako
