My Travel Toiletries.

31 Jul 2014

I set off for London on the 2nd as my first stop on my holiday and have been trying to get organised as much as I can in advance for my 2 week trip. During these two weeks, all my posts will be queued unless I say as I might try to jump on to make a quick update post on how my travels are going! 
One of the first things I want to get sorted and organised is what hair and skin care products I'll be taking. While we are travelling to our final destination which is Austria by numerous trains, we are travelling directly home by plane so I have to keep in mind the amount of stuff I am taking so I'm trying to pack as light as I can which includes beauty products.

I'm not a big one for lotions and potions for my hair and I keep it simple by taking a shampoo, conditioner and a serum. The shampoo shown in the photo is the Tresemme Deep Cleansing Shampoo. I'm not 100% sure this will be the final shampoo I take as I find it to be quite drying but I will definitely be picking up a travel sized shampoo for the trip. For conditioner, I love my Frizz Ease Dream Curls Conditioner too much not to take it so I think I will be taking this but putting some in to a travel bottle. My serum is the Frizz Ease Original Serum. It's not something I can really put into another container but it's something I can't live without especially with the heat so I will be taking the whole bottle.

For Shower products I'm keeping things simple; I will be taking a small shower gel and a razor. The razor shown in the photo is one from Venus which has gel bars as, while being fairly expensive for replacement razor heads, it is very practical as I won't be having to carry a shaving gel as well. I'll also probably will take a body moisturiser and I'll be keeping things simple with my E45 Body Moisturiser.

For skin care, I'm trying to keep things simple with my usual Garnier Micellar Water to remove my make up which will be another one I will be putting into a travel bottle. I'll take the cleanser I am using frequently at the moment which is the Clean & Clear Advantage Spot Control Face Wash which is one of many things that I forgot to include in the above photo. For moisturiser, I'll be taking my usual Simple Moisturiser along with a new (and expensive) purchase which is the Origins Drink-Up Intensive Overnight Mask. I know my skin will become dehydrated with the amount of travelling I'll be doing. I won't be taking the full tube and will probably fill a small pot for areas that need a real hydration boost.

I've the included some sun cream. My mum is normally the one in charge of packing numerous sunscreens with numerous SPF strengths but just in case my mum some how completely forgets, I have a back up. 
Along with the usual essentials: deodorant, tooth brush toothpaste and cotton pads that's everything that will be going in my new Primark Make Up Bag which is big enough to fit all of this and more including some make up palettes.

And that's it!
It may not seem it but this is a extremely cut down version of the products I wish we could take!
What are some of travel toiletry essential?
Hope you're doing great,
