3 week holiday Skincare- The Final Edit



So today is the second part to my streamlined holiday packing. As my last holiday to Mykonos I went a little overboard and brought along three different face masks and two hair masks I decided to keep things a little more low key for this one.


I’ve decanted some L’Oreal Micellar Water into a spritzer bottle to remove my makeup. However, I’ll be stocking up on Bioderma when I get to France.


I decanted my Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm into a little pot which will (fingers crossed!) last me for the duration of my trip, whereby on return on August 1st I’ll be running to Space NK for a new tub (third one!). For a morning cleanse I’ve taken La Roche Posay Physiological cleansing gel.


The La Roche Posay Serozinc will do me just fine as a toner and general “skin clearer”. I’ll also be restocking on bottles of this when I get to France next week (currently in Italy!).


For serum I’ve brought along Indeed Labs Peptabright for pigmentation, Hydraluron for my dehydrated skin and La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo for any breakouts that my occur. Simples.


For the day time I’ve taken Embryolisse Hydra-Matte Emulsion to keep shininess at bay and for the evening I’ll be using a mix of Dermalogica Intesne Moisture Balance and Eucerin Oil Free Night Care.


For those “ohmygod I need to pamper myself my skin has gone cray” nights, I’ve taken precautions. I’ve taken Dr. Organic Manuka Honey and Fresh Umbrian Clay Face mask decanted into little pots (enough for two uses each) for those emergency moments. Sorted!

That’s it- not quite as streamlined as my make-up but it fits into my ZPN Russian Doll toiletry bag and that’s what matters!

    Wow, you are so prepared for anything! I love it! What do you think of ‘Indeed Labs Peptabright’, as I’ve recently purchased Hydraluron, and I love it so much. Does it really deal well with skin pigmentation?

    Thank you sweetie xx

      Hello! I really like Peptabright and have noticed my complexion is all over brighter and my pigmentation which usually gets really bad in the Summer is better! I think that it tackles dullness better than physically eradicating dark spots. It’s a lovely product though! Hydraluron is amazing isn’t it? I don’t know what I’d do without it!
