Hello from Korea! I know I've mentioned this Seoul trip in earlier blogs and now I'm here. Very excited to be eating my way through the city but it's been so so cold - averaging -10 every day.
From packing the night before, to being delayed on the flight for two hours and arriving here in freezing winter.. I wanted to share my top travel essentials with you.
When you travel, the weather changes, alternative diet, lack of sleep and extra activity can push your skin out of whack. I often get a few pimples here and there, particularly because of this indulgent diet. The Acne patches are a must and the easiest way to deal with unexpected blemishes.
Who has time to blow dry and style hair every day while you're on holiday?? These rollers with clips are the best way make sure you've got volume and styling it without all the fuss. You can sleep with them on or clip them in as you get ready to go out.
Because the main goal is to pack as light as possible, there's no way I was going to pack different types of cleansers including an exfoliator. With this jelly cleansing puff, I'm getting a deep clean daily without the extra baggage!
Didn't have time to get your hair done before flying? or just want to refresh your hair for all those holiday snaps? This shampoo-type bubble hair dye delivers radiant coloring to the hair and the special non-drip formula allows you to evenly coat the hair.
I can't tell you how many times I've forgotten to pack a hair brush and then had to buy a new brush whilst on holiday. It's one of those things you always forget to pack but definitely need. This paddle cushion brush is one of my favourites, it doesn't hurt as you brush and the wide size covers a lot of surface area evenly.
Staying in hotel rooms and battling the changes in weather dehydrates you all over. Lip balm is also an essential but this lip mask is great to apply before bed and protect and hydrate your lips overnight. There's nothing worse than white, cracked lips while on holiday!
Especially if you're travelling to a warmer or humid climate, you'll need to keep one of these pacts handy to refresh during the day. However, even if you're in a cold climate like I am at the moment, you'll find it handy as often you'll be out from morning to late at night and your make up most definitely won't be as fresh!
One of my favourite cushions right now! It gives you a flawless finish and very long-lasting - exactly what you need for those long days out and about. It also includes SPF so you know you're doing your skin a favour. It comes in three different colours, and with the superfine powder particles the colours fits perfectly on your face.
Another essential I always forget to pack (mentioning this as I forgot to pack it again this time and had to go get some). If you're wearing make up every day it's important to be keeping to a strict cleansing routine. I find the oil cleansers are the most effective and most gentle on my skin. This green tea one is also hydrating and has detoxing effects for the perfect end to the day.
What I love is a two in one product. Not just for minimising luggage space but also so I can pack just one thing in my handbag each day. This Blur Fudge tint not only brings back colour to my lips but I also like to use it on my cheeks as blush. If I'm really in need, I can also use a touch on my eyelids for extra colour as well - so a three in one product!
Hope this list has helped with getting ready for your next holiday. Wherever you're going, I'm sure you'll need all of the above! And finally, stay safe, take vitamins and enjoy!
