Travelling Light With Beauty Products


Going away on holiday is blissful whether it is a four week vacation to the Caribbean or to the African continent or a few days away to Paris. Packing however can be a total nightmare especially when it comes to your beauty products. If you are a total beauty junkie like me then you really are in for a ride when choosing what to leave behind. Beauty products are always tricky to pack; you might not want to put them in your main suitcase in case they spill onto your clothes in transit and legislations at the airport means that you are restricted to only bringing items at 100mils in your hand language. Origins Origins have released a set of travel sized versions of their hero products which at 50ml they are perfectly within the limitations. You can pick from the Checks and Balances Frothy face wash, A Perfect World Antioxidant Cleanser with White Tea, Modern Friction Nature’s Gentle Dermabrasion, Drink Up Intensive Overnight Face Mask, Make A Difference Rejuvenating Hand Treatment, Ginger Soufflé Whipped Body Cream and Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask.
