Travel Sized Beauty

I may not be the worlds biggest jetsetter, but I do love squirreling away samples and travel sized products for short trips and even weekends away at the beach house. I was pleased with the itsy bitsy products I toted up to Queensland with me recently for a one week stay, so here is a round up of what they were!

Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel - I've used up a full-size bottle of this in the past and have since repurchased, so before I went away I squeezed away to refill this sample tube that I got from Mecca Maxima. I love being able to use a good cleanser without having to bring the whole bottle with me!

Uriage Creme Lavante Nourishing and Cleansing Cream - A nice, simple fluid cream cleanser that was the perfect size to take away with me.

Bioderma Crealine H2O - The original micellar water, I love the different sizes these come in and for this trip I brought up the classic variety with the red lid. I used this to remove all of my makeup, and it does take a few swipes for the eye looks I prefer but worked a treat nevertheless.

Smashbox Photo Finish Oil Free Foundation Primer - Love this stuff, a silicone primer that I use on the face where my pores stand out the most to smooth over them before I apply my foundation or BB cream.

Palmer's Massage Cream for Stretch Marks - I always try to take a small moisturiser away with me just in case, and even though I knew I was going to hit up Bath & Body Works I wanted this for the start of my trip so my skin stayed hydrated.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation (sample pot) - This little jar was originally a Mario Badescu skincare sample from Mecca Maxima but I cleaned it out and pumped a few days worth of my Too Faced foundation for the days I wanted higher coverage than my everyday BB cream and for nights out to dinner with everyone.
How many products do you travel with? Do you bother with miniature things or just lug your regular routine with you?

Bath & Body Works Australia Haul

I just returned home from a family holiday in Queensland, and I took the opportunity to pick up a few travel sized bits and pieces from one of my very favourite stores, Bath & Body Works! There are currently two Australian stores open and one is at Chadstone shopping centre in Victoria which is accessible for me, but I only go there about once a year at most so am yet to visit. The other store is at Pacific Fair in Queensland, and since I've only ever bought this brand while on holiday it seemed fitting to continue the trend and treat myself to a few new scents! My favourite product from this store would have to be their fragrance mists, and I love grabbing the travel sized versions which are 88ml and last a long time. This time around I also picked up a travel sized body lotion, and they had a deal on with any 3 travel sized body products coming to $25 AUD, so this haul came to $50 AUD.
