Mister Bovary and I returned last night from a long weekend in the city to celebrate our first wedding anniversary - it's amazing to think it was a whole year ago that I walked down the aisle and celebrated with all of our family, and so funny to think that I've not yet posted any wedding snaps/details here on the blog! I wonder if that is something you would find interesting? But I digress; I wanted to share with you the curated travel skincare I brought along with me for our 3 night stay in Melbourne, as I am quite proud of all of the travel-sized and mini products I saved up for the occasion!
Quite a simplistic routine was on the agenda for a busy weekend of sightseeing, romantic dinners and the like, so I brought along a few bits for makeup removal and the basic staples for everything else.
- Neutrogena Make-Up Removing Cleansing Towelettes
- Bioderma Crealine H2O 20ml
- Bioderma Sebium H2O 10ml
- Chanel Gentle Biphase Eye Makeup Remover 10ml
- Bioderma Cotton Rounds
- Dermalogica Precleanse 30ml
- Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel
- Bioderma Sebium AKN Purifying Corrective Care
- Origins Drink-Up Intensive Overnight Mask (decanted into pot)
- OPI Avojuice Coconut Melon Lotion
I had been squirreling away my baby skincare bits for this trip and another we have mid-November, and it made such a difference to the weight of my overnight bag! Mister was very impressed with my restraint and thought the stash very cute, and I was pleased that I used everything I brought with me bar the Chanel remover (used Bioderma instead!) and the Bioderma Crealine (the 10ml Sebium sachet lasted the whole trip so I didn't need to reach for it) I have another post detailing the makeup I brought along with me forthcoming and I must say I did very well with packing for this weekend away.
How do you fare when it comes to packing for short trips?
What is the most romantic date you've ever been on?
