I don't pack light.
 
In the two and a half years of the blog I've realised that I've never ever done or considered doing a "whats in my travel bag" post, so while packing for my uni residential weekend a few weeks ago I thought I would take a few photos of the "essential" items I need for an over night stay.
 
First up the bag - its just a cheap freebie which I got with some Clarins items which even though it looks teeny, actually fits so much in. Toothpaste - it has been known that any time I go anywhere I always without doubt forget toothpaste, hence throwing it in here. Cotton wool/contacts/nail file/paracetomol - quite self explanatory. Now I've just realised I have three lipbalms in there - haven't a clue why I brought 3 but I did, think I only used the Blistex* one too. I always carry miniture samples with me when travelling - Clairns moisturiser, Murad eyecream, Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and Science et Mer toner. I always see a trip as a fab way to try and test new products.
 
I never go anywhere without my Origins Super Spot Remover as you know the time you don't have it will be the time you have a massive zit on your face. Don't be fooled by the tin of mints - I actually use this to keep my kirby grips in (handy little hint for you). I've recently been testing the Angela Langford Eye Make Up Remover* and I've got a review on this to come however all what I can say is that I may have found a replacement for my Boots Botanics Eye Make Up remover. Last bits are my skin and nails - OPI Avoplex and L'Octaine Hand Cream and Korres Body Milk keep the rest of me hydrated, as I always find the radiators in hotels dries my skin out.
 
Phew and I honestly thought I was packing light. Does anyone know where I can buy Science et Mer products online?? That toner is amazing!!!
