Travel goodies :)

Pantene shampoo and conditioner travel bottles, Solait sun cream, Simple Oil balancing face wash, Simple face wipes, Simple Oil balancing moisturizer, Nivea roll on travel deodorant, Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, Orange travel shower gel.

So I decided not to take a lot with me to Germany initially and this is what I've got to take so far. Since I'm staying for 6 weeks I thought it would be easier to just pick up a bigger shampoo and shower gel there (hopefully!!). It was 3 for £3 or something in Superdrug, so I got the 2 hair things and the shower gel and then also the roll on deodorant. I'm not actually a fan of roll on at all, but I think this smaller one goes further than the travel size aerosol does and it smells quite nice so I went for that instead.

The Simple face wipes I've used before and come back to, because there was a buy one get one free offer on (I got another packet too), but the face wash and moisturizer are new to me. I always had bad skin as a child/teenager and now I've hit 20 it has finally started clearing up a bit and I only ever get a few small spots, not the massive break outs I was used to. My skin had been really good at university, but now I'm back at home and working at McDonald's again (kill me now) it has got all oily and disgusting from the greasy air and from the make up that I've been wearing to work. I did have an Elemis oil balance matte moisturizer as a tester from a magazine and loved it, but as a student it was far too expensive for me to purchase the full product so I stumbled upon this moisturizer instead. It does seemsto have tamed my oiliness a bit - especially in combination with the face wash (which is really nice and gentle and leaves you feeling clean and fresh). I like that the moisturizer dries nice and quickly, so I'm not waiting around for ages to put make up on. A little seems to go a long way with the moisturizer, whereas the opposite is true for the face wash. I've not had it long and gone through quite a bit. It isn't a foaming wash, so I think that is why you maybe have to use a bit more of it. I do really like them though!

Finally, I also got the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in vanilla since I'd heard such good things about it. I have an Estee Lauder foundation which is my favourite, but I didn't really want to take that on holiday as it is a very full coverage and not really necessary. I also need to save it up for my brother's wedding in August!! I like the smooth finish of the foundation, and also how nicely it goes on - it even smells great too! I think it has a nice light coverage, which is good now I am quite happy with my skin. I think I need to give it a few more tries, and I can't exactly rave about it, but it is a nice, light product.
