My Suitcase Skincare Picks

Every Sunday night you'll find me on my laptop searching for holidays I can't afford. We've booked one though, a bargain price in a hotel location. Bring on July! I thought I'd kick off my summer travel series with a look in my suitcase at the skincare products I take with me on my journeys. My suitcase itself is from American Tourister and the colour matches my car perfectly (who doesn't love pink?). It's a cabin case, but big enough that it'll be my only one for my trips this year as with two sections, I can cram literally everything in. It's perfect. 

Let's start with the basics. I cannot live without my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. The only thing I use that makes me feel completely clean and soft, and gets rid of eye makeup without making them sore too. If I'm having a pamper night, I'll use this mini bottle of Glam Glow's Gravitymud firming mask, and wipe it off using the Image cleaning wipes. Then I'll slap on some LanoLips Lip ointment (can be used anywhere) because no matter what time of year, my lips will be dry.  At this point I like to use my jade roller just to go over my face. As we all know I have no idea what I'm actually doing here and mostly roll for fun. 

Anyway, my current moisturizer is the Bioderma soothing cream and let me tell you does this stuff sooth. It's beyond rich and thick enough to feel a different but not stay sticky on your skin. I am loving it right now and can't image a day without using it. I've forgone makeup primers too just because I didn't feel the need after using this. 10/10. As it's summer (apparently), I'm trying to add more SPF into my routine, so a quick mist of the Bioderma Moisturising anti-uv mist is fab. Plus it's cooling on the face on a really hot (and sticky) day. For any extra dry bits, I'll add a little of the Neil's Yard Wild Rose Beauty Balm before makeup or anything as I find this, plus moisturiser, really helps for foundation to glide over and last longer on problem areas.

Lastly, body skin wise, I love using this mini bottle of the L'Occitane shower oil as there's nothing like smooth skin after shaving to help you feel fab in the summer. Plus is smells great too. Before I head out, my go to sun cream is the Bioderma 50+ sun mist. I know I won't tan, so why bother with it when I can add extra SPF, save my skin and just fake it later on?

Have a great summer all x
