When it comes to packing an overnight bag size and weight are always a priority however I do always like to take a little luxury with me. That’s when I delve through my mini shopping basket (from Flying Tiger Stores) which houses all the samples I’ve collected. Sadly most are un-used due to some of the iconic products looking too damn cute to use! (well that’s just me being silly)
On a recent trip to the coast to see my parents these are what I choose to take along in addition to my usual make-up bag and face cleanser – bath & hair products all supplied by mum. In no particular order here’s an overview of what’s in my bag:
Aurelia Botanical Cream Deodorant – A natural cream to powder formula that’s fragrance is Tea Tree, Peppermint, Lavender, Eucalyptus. I’m not totally sold but like the idea of a totally natural alternative. It smells fantastic fresh and feels dry.
Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Recovery Moisturiser – A soothing and calming light cream perfect for sensitive skin and great under tinted moisturiser. It smells like you’ve just walked into a relaxing spa.
NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint – Perfect tinted moisturiser that has great coverage and keeps me shine free all day! And it has an SPF 30
Benefit High Beam – An oldie but a goldie, my go-to luminescent complex enhancer that I dot on my high check bones and blend up and outwards. Also great to blend a dot on either side of the bridge of your nose in the inner corner of your eye to brighten and look less tired.
Dr Sebagh Rose de Vie – You know how much I love Dr Sebagh serums/creams. This is perfect before bed, it’s very calming and smells devine. It’s like giving yourself a mini facial. I always wake up with replenished plumped up looking skin after using this.
Aurelia Aromatic Repair & Brighten Hand Cream – You may already know how much I love this luxury anti-ageing hand cream. If you missed it you can read my write up on it here.
Plum by Mary Greenwell – This perfume has recently been discontinued which is such a shame. Hence why I decided to purchase a couple of full size bottles which were delivered with a few samples – very handy. It’s a classic chypre with a modern twist, uncomplicated chic, sensual and warm. Perfect from day to evening.
There you go my 7 little luxuries that made it into my overnight bag.
