As much as I love travelling (and lord knows I’ve done it enough this year!), I do miss having all my beauty favourites in one place! Saying that, it does give me a good chance to stick to an actual routine and discover some favourites, since I can be distracted by my usual overflowing stash of products!
I rounded up a few highlights from my recent trip away and I had to share them with you because they really deserve some recognition! From daily cleansers to spot-fighting treatments, here’s my edit of the must haves…
Glossier Milk Jelly Cleanser is my ride-or-die at the moment, in the words of Kevin Malone “I’m serious about this stuff” (except he was talking about his famous homemade chilli). I didn’t think I would get along with this at first, the lack of scent and er, interesting jelly texture kind of felt like it should be used in a hospital environment. Like, is this ultrasound jelly I do not know.
ANYWAY, it is legit. It removes makeup like a dream, melts away impurities and leaves skin looking and feeling oh so fresh, and deliciously hydrated too.
I’ve been following this up with a quick slick of Sunday Riley Luna Oil, another product that really everyone needs to own asap. The bright blue oil works miracles on blemishes, bumpy texture and congested skin. The result is a smoother, clearer and more even complexion come morning.
Usually at home my evening skin routine would be overwhelming, so I loved stripping it back but still seeing great results!
As for mornings, I introduced the Glossier Priming Moisturiser and it was like all my troubles melted away. The promises great hydration and the very best base for makeup in one easy application!
I introduced two new hair faves this trip; the first being the IGK Smoke & Mirrors Cleansing Oil, something that’s taking me a little while to get used to! This replaces shampoo and conditioner, so you just sweep a handful of oil through wet hair and rinse out. It’s meant to melt away dirt without the damage that shampoo does. I really like it but so far I’ve followed it up with a tiny bit of shampoo just incase my hair doesn’t look quite so clean – I’ll need to wait for a day when I have no big plans so I can test it properly!
The other is the Herbivore Sea Mist, you all know I love a salt spray and this is no different. Full post coming…
I also added the Herbviore Coco Rose Body Scrub to my routine and it. is. lush. Just the right kind of scrubbiness, a lovely lick of nourishment and a gorge scent too. Mmmmm… (will absolutely review this brand soon!)
Finally, where would I be without my trusty Other Stories Hand Cream? I’m currently rapidly draining my tube of Punk Bouquet and it is a dream. I’m not sure why you would feel the need to use any other hand cream to be quite honest.
I’m pretty smitten with this little lineup, and they’ve quickly slotted right in to my routine now I’m on home turf too. Have you tried any of these?
