As you read this I’ll be living it up in Brighton on a little weekend trip for my friends birthday and to say I’m excited is an understatement – I’m literally bursting! I wanted to see if I could streamline my packing for this trip, especially makeup and skincare-wise, not for any particular reason just because I tend to overpack. A Glossier much seemed like the perfect size, big enough but also quite thin. The bag is pretty much filled with my usual skincare routine but with some cute minis thrown in, so here is what I’m taking skincare-wise on my mini break to Brighton.
I constantly need Micellar Water in my life and these little Garnier ones are the best for when you’re out and about. You don’t even really need to get this for the product inside (although this is my favourite Micellar Water) but the bottle is great, relatively flat and there’s no fear of a massive explosion all over your bag. Also, cotton pads, because I’m sorry but toilet paper and kitchen roll are not the same. For when I need to really cleanse my face during this weekend (say on Sunday morning when I feel like absolute death) then I have this sample size of the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser to use. It’s my favourite product for a second cleanse and although it isn’t very good at removing makeup, once I’ve gone over my face with the micellar water it really gets in and cleans out any gunk left on my face and leaves it feeling a little bit happier. It seems like quite a decent sample and I might even get two uses out of it (woo I know how to live life!).
