10 Minis

10minis
As this post goes live I’ll be at the airport, hopefully eating the customary airport breakfast (check my Instagram for evidence!) before jetting off to Budapest for a little city break. I am so excited!!

Last time I went away, I shared my Travel Make Up with you. Instead of sharing much the same with you, I thought I’d post about the mini skincare and haircare items I have packed. Mini products are definitely a weakness of mine, in fact anything mini just makes my heart smile! However, I have tried to narrow the mini products I’ll be taking to just 10 (I know, I know – that’s still quite a lot!). Some are new purchases and others have been saved from beauty boxes.

Clinique Foaming Facial Soap
Not that long ago, Clinique would exchange any cleanser for a sample of their foaming facial soap so I did just that and came away with a mini bottle. I haven’t used many foaming cleansers in the past, I hope this doesn’t agitate my skin.

L’Occitane Hand Cream
I won this little travel sized hand cream in a giveaway and as it’s going to be very cold in Budapest I thought it would be a good idea to have some hand cream packed.

Naobay Body Radiance Lotion
I’ve got into the habit of using a body lotion after every shower now and it really has made a difference to the condition of my skin, so of course I have to take some body lotion with me. This is a lemony fresh organic body lotion with shea butter, olive and avocado oils.

Simply Sensitive Eye Make Up Removal Pads | £1.74
Technically these aren’t travel sized as they’re a pack of 30, but they won’t take up much room so thought I could justify including them in this post. Rather than taking eye make up remover I thought I’d try some of these, especially as they’re on offer. I may well need to use 2 or 3 to fully remove all my eye make up, but if it does the job then I don’t mind!

Soap and Glory Clean On Me Body Wash | £2.50
I know our hotel will probably have shower gel but I’ve wanted to try Soap and Glory’s Clean On Me body wash for ages. This body wash has built in body lotion, which with the cold weather I’m expecting in Budapest, will hopefully help keep my skin smooth and extra hydrated.

Talika Photo-Hydra Day
I received this in my my January My Little Box and I’ve used this moisturiser a few times now and I’m really enjoying it.

TRESemme 24 Hour Body Shampoo and Conditioner | £1.49 each
TRESemme hair products have never let me down, I’m not sure whether I have tried the 24 Hour Body range but they were the only duo in the Boots store I visited and I’d never say no to some extra volume and bounce.

Urban Veda Radiance Exfoliating Facial Polish
It seems I’ve had this in my stash since last February so I think it’s about time I gave it a whirl. This facial polish claims to balance and brighten skin tone.

Yes to Carrots 10 Pack of Gentle Cleansing Wipes | £1.99
I wouldn’t normally use cleansing wipes, but on holiday it’s easier to remove make up and pre-cleanse with a wipe then it is to take a bottle of micellar water, which is what I’d usually use. I didn’t want to take a full pack of cleansing wipes so thought it would be easier to get these and I am actually quite excited to try another product from the Yes To range.

  • Hand creme is always a must and I really adore the l’Occitane hand cremes. I like to take the mini Rituals shower foam and shampoo with me when I travel.

    Most of the times, I just keep samples untouched until I go traveling. It takes the least space in my bag. So shampoo samples, perfume samples… All go in there! ;)

    Lovely post!
