What's In My Travel Beauty Bag?


Hey everyone,

As some of you may know, I'm off to France tomorrow for 5 nights! I just started a bit of packing today as I hate leaving things til the last minute, so I figured I'd share some of my packing with you. Airlines have a liquid limit of 100ml, which can be slightly frustrating! Thankfully, I've managed to put together a travel bag full of hair and skin products that are all travel size and purse friendly! I picked up this Cath Kidston makeup bag in Kildare Village a few years ago and it's still my favourite bag to use. It's still in perfect shape and I love the bright pattern! Let's take a look at what's inside, shall we?

 I popped into Penneys yesterday for a last minute holiday shop, and I was delighted to see empty travel size bottles for €1.50! The small jar is perfect for my moisturiser and I'm putting my Vichy SPF50 into one of the bottles. I also picked up a toothbrush holder, something I've never seen before but seeing as you get two (a pink and a clear one) for €1.50, I couldn't say no. The last thing I picked up in Penneys were a two pack of eye makeup remover pads for €1.50, and these will be perfect for the music festival I'm heading to.

Last week I headed to a press event with RDCommunications to view their latest Summer releases, and we received a generous goody bag with plenty of travel sized products. I'm definitely bringing the Ziaja Face Cream* with SPF50, as I get sunburnt super easily and I hate the feeling of regular suncream on my face- it blocks my pores! I also got REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash* and Body Lotion*. These smell absolutely divine, and I'm so excited to use them as REN Skincare are a favourite among many bloggers.

I was recently sent an Argan Secret Travel Kit* (availible from Sally Express) and I'll certainly be bringing some of the items with me as they look and smell amazing. The Luxury Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner are both 100ml meaning I'll have plenty to last me the 5 nights I'm there. The kit also came with a mini hairbrush which is the cutest thing ever!

So there you have it! The contents of my travel beauty bag. Let me know if you'd like to see more travel posts in future! What's in your travel bag?
