Carrying with me (travel essentials)

July 16th  •  Posted in Beauty

This summer I’m not going anywhere fancy really, but I’m spending a pair of weeks at my boyfriend’s place and this made the perfect excuse for packing and showing what I like to carry with me when I’m travelling. Not that these are all essential for real, I’ve a bit overdone being that I had no limits of space or weight, but beside skincare which is my weakness and I just feel like I need to bring it all with me wherever I go, I tried to keep it quite light and minimal.


For my body and hair I packed everything in my Muji TPU Large Pouch which is also super handy if you’re flying but which keep everything very organised and waterproof especially when you’re carrying bath or shower essentials. The REN set smells delicious and fruity and it’s tiny and compact which makes everything easier since you don’t have to carry a big shower gel or moisturiser and it’s perfect for flying, while the Lavera shampoo and the Breeze deodorant are becoming my favourites and I simply can’t go without them. Not a huge fan of the La Saponaria hair conditioner though, but I have to finish it (even though I’m actually stealing my boyfriend’s conditioner a lot)…

What I brought: REN Neroli DuoLavera Basis Sensitive Mild ShampooLa Saponaria Balsamo lino e mandarino Breeze Neutro 24h Deodorant.


As I mentioned I went a bit crazy with skincare and found out that actually not all that stuff was useful, however my skin can be crazy in summertime and I need to feel safe when I’m not home and know I won’t have to hide my face for a week. So I brought a few options between my Eczema Treatments as well as all the oily skin essentials I’m using lately now that my skin is oilier. Some of them are the perfect size for travelling which is good as it means they fit in tiny rooms in your bag, and in general all of them are not bulky at all. Other than that I can’t live without my cleansers, my eye creams and a few products from my Makeup Removing Routine, but I also brought a self tanner and body SPF just in case…

Makeup-wise I’m sticking to a very simple and minimal routine of which you can read more on here; I brought a few options just to switch things up a little bit and went for a face powder because my skin is super oily recently and I need everything that could help me with that situation. But in general I’m being loyal to these same products which require only a pair of brushes.
