What was in my travel make-up bag...and what I actually used...

Now that I am back from my holiday in belle Paris, here are the make-up items I took with me and the ones I actually used. I don't know about you but I find it really difficult to limit myself to just a few make-up items when travelling so I tried to stick to just the essentials.  Here are the photos and a list of the products :)

I took two of these very handy Essence cosmetics bags that were given to me at a bloggers' event. They are also very handy to carry liquids in your hand luggage as stipulated by the latest EU luggage regulations, not to mention that they hold a lot of products.

First up are the toiletries (as a side note, I have used all of these):

Products shown:

Camay Pink Shower Cream
Shampoo & Conditioner (in Sunsilk bottles)
Essence Like A First Day In Spring Perfume (this actually gave me hayfever like a first day in Spring)
Travalo Excel Pink (filled with Guerlain Insolence perfume for the evenings)
La Roche Posay Effaclar Mat Moisturizer
Nivea Visage Young Smooth It! Exfoliating Scrub
Theramed White Booster Toothpaste
Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash (I took this with me because of the small size and I had tried it before to see if it breaks me out but it turned out to be a very good cleanser. The only downside would be the herbal-medicinal smell).
Nivea Invisible Deodorant
Gilette Venus razor
Lycia Facial Wipes

Next is make-up. The essentials here turned out to be less than I packed...

  1. The rules for carry on liquids is so annoying! Looks like you had it sorted though. The nail polish choice is great, very timeless :) Looks like you had a good trip, but was very cold! Brr!

    1. Indeed it was a good trip :) It was a bit chilly in the mornings but at least it warmed up during the day. Glad you liked the polish :)
