Two weeks ago I went away for a short break to Cornwall. I didn't want to take loads of full sized skincare products so I took the opportunity to try out some miniature samples.
I tried to be as strict with myself as possible only taking away with me the essentials.
1. Just face It 3 in 1 Face Wipes
I know face wipes aren't for everyone but I am a fan of these ones. The wipes stay moist and are a thick and very soft material. I sometimes find wipes to be drying but these leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed.
2. Quickies Eye Make Up Remover Pads
These are great handy pads which remove even the most stubborn of eye make up. The one down side it the pads are quite rough so they can feel a little over abrasive around delicate eye area, so when using them don't apply too much pressure.
3. Nivea Visage Daily Essentials 2 in 1 Cleanser and Toner
Once you've used your make up it's time to cleanse and tone. This product does both those things in one go. This product is a light creamy lotion which can either be applied on a cotton pad and wiped over the skin or gently massaged into the skin and wiped off with a damp cotton pad.
4. Eau Roma Water
This a lovely light refreshing spray which I just spritz over freshly cleansed skin. It leaves the skin feeling hydrated and helps reduce any redness.
4. Waitrose Pure Facial Oil
This is a light weight facial oil which I apply before my evening moisturiser and it helps your moisturiser to absorb into the skin better. Only a few drops are needed to provide a thin layer across your face.
5. Balance Me Face Moisturiser
This is a sample sized product which I thought I would try out while I was away. The cream it's is lightweight and sinks nicely into the skin.
6. Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash
This again is another sample size. I used this in the morning to wash my face and the grapefruit smell was nice and refreshing.
7. Sanctuary Resurface and Refine Ultra Polish
To ready my face for the day I like to use a face scrub. This scrub has fine particles so its gets deep into the pores. I wouldn't use this every day as it is quite an abrasive scrub but every other day it works great.
8. Simple Radiance Brightening Moisturiser SPF 15
One of my favourite daily moisturisers, this is a lightweight moisturiser which contains brightening particles which give you a healthy glow.
9. Ultrasun Very High SPF 50+
I have very pale skin so I burn easily. The high SPF in this suncream means that my skin is fully protected from any harmful rays.
10. Simple Kind To Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll-On
Finally the last product I packed was this eye roll on. I find this product really cools down the eye area and if my eyes ever feel itchy due to hay fever etc applying a layer of this under my eyes soothes this itching.
