Travel Cosmetic Essentials!

Hello Lovelies,

Summer is here! For many that means jetting off somewhere sunny but if you're more of a staycation kinda gal, not to fret, this applies to all! Sometime during the Summer you're bound to be travelling somewhere. That may mean a seven hour flight or an half hour drive. Either way, you need to decide what are really worth packing. Nothing is worse than packing so many cosmetics that take up so much space, and you never even end up using half of them. Here are a few things that I consider essentials no matter where you're off to.

• BB Cream / Tinted Moisturiser

Ditch the foundation ladies! A BB cream provides a little coverage whilst still remaining light on the skin. Many of them also have decent SPF built in to protect from the sun. My personal fave is Maybelline's dream fresh BB Cream. If you are lucky enough to have relatively perfect skin you may be more tempted to try a tinted moisturiser. Not as much coverage here, but a nice wash of colour and usually some SPF built in too. I love the one by Dermalogica. Check it out here for a great price- €27.40!

• Moisturiser!

Plain and simple. Get one with an high SPF content to double up as sun screen. There are a ton out there!

• Aloe Vera Gel

Random? Yes. Necessary? Hell yeah!
Aloe Vera gel is very affordable and extremely multifunctional. It can be used as hair gel, shaving gel
etcetera. My personal favourite use is as an after sun and for heat rash. It's extremely soothing and cooling. Try this one for £3.99.

• Sudocrem

Again another random product but one of the most multifunctional. This can be used to cure acne, rashes and so many more. It's just a great product to whip out during mini skin emergencies. Widely available and extremely inexpensive! This cute little mini version is perfect for travelling and is cheap as chips at £1.99!

Mini Containers!

For all those travel essentials that just aren't available in mini sizes! These are super cute and extremely practical! They usually come with a few mini tubs and mini bottles to bring some of your favourite products on board with you if travelling by airplane. Check them out here.
