Summer means travel. And although I love travelling, sometimes it can be stressful as hell. Instead of having a drawer full of your beauty products and holy grails, you can now only bring a bag full. Not only do you need to bring all your daily routine products, I also always need to have some skin rescue essentials with me – the most random things tend to happen when you’re travelling. This means you need to pack smart and I’m here to help you out with that. In this blogpost I’m sharing you Summer Travel Essentials you need to bring with you on your holidays ánd there’s also a giveaway involved of one of my favorite items!
Let’s start at the bottom: yo feet. Travelling usually means a lot of walking, which can be a killer for your feet. Travelling also means you’re probably going to a warm place to enjoy your Summer, aka flipflops and cute sandals. You want your feet to look presentable and I definitely need a little help with that. With Scholl Velvet Smooth you can get that perfect manicure and pedicure, all at home. It’s an electronic device with 3 different steps that will leave your nails in perfect shape and looking shiny af. Finish it off with the Scholl Velvet Smooth intensive serum to keep your nails healthy and moisturized. Guaranteed pretty nails and feet this Summer!
Next up it’s time to talk about my skin Summer travel essentials. One of my pet peeves is bringing cotton pads with me on a trip. I always have waaay too much with me, or waaay too little. Since I’ve discovered The Konjac Sponge Eye Cleansing Pads, I don’t have that problem anymore. These are cleansing pads made from a Japanese root that will get soft once you put them in water. They’re natural, reusable and remove all my eye make-up. Say bye bye to that cotton pad pet peeve. ;)
SKIN CARE MINI’S
I have an extensive skin care routine. Carrying all those different bottles with me when I’m travelling is really heavy and quite annoying too. Luckily one of my favorite skin care brands, Paula’s Choice, has the option to buy all her products in mini ánd sample size. Honestly, I wish more brand would do this, ’cause it’s just a genius idea. Now I have my cleanser, peeling and serum all with me on vacay, without the weight!
Another Summer travel essential for me personally is a good eye and face cream. The sun, partying and late nights can really do some damage to your skin. I don’t like heavy creams during Summer time, so this Philosophy Take a deep breath oil-free oxygenating gel cream and Philosophy Take a deep breath eye gel cream are perfect for me. They are both gel creams, which means that they’re way lighter than your usual cream. They sink into my skin immediately, leaving it soft and hydrated. Love it!
For body essential I want to mention this Jill Sander Sun Shake perfume. This is a perfect perfume to bring with you to the beach. It smells delicious, looks super cute and is small enough to put in your beach bag. The coolest thing about this perfume is the consistency. Yeah, you read that right. This perfume comes out as a shimmery, lightweight oil, leaving you smelling good, moisturized ánd glowy. Who doesn’t need that in their life right?!
Last, but so not least: My beloved Marc Inbane products. I don’t tan that easily unfortunately, even when I’m on vacay. Luckily I have a little help in that area. First, I use the Marc Inbane Facial Exfoliator (but I like to use it all over my body too). It has a very cool consistency – it turns black when you use it! – and it works wonders with removing all your dead skincells. After that, I use the Marc Inbane Natural Tanning Spray all over my body with this Marc Inbane tanning mitt. I promise you guys: I’ve been loving this product for a year now and it never gave me any streaks! If you’re on the lookout for a great self tanner, try out this one, you won’t regret it.
