It’s full summer and between one and other trip or being just few days away, we always love to travel light. Thankfully when we need skincare products on the go and avoid all that huge bottles, there are now many nice solutions even on the green market. Here are a few choices among many that I’ve selected for you.
This brand will never cease me to impress, I simply adore it! Among the wide offer of products and one of the best organic and holistic treatments, they also have in their shops 2 types of samples: those small 1,5ml that you get for free (in sachets) and bigger ones of 5ml in small tubes or glass bottles (for body oils) that you can buy in their store and select among all products. Yes, they have all the products even in mini sizes sold separately. They also have their well-known travel kits, which include these same sizes of selected products depending on dry or oily skin type. Plus travel size body sets. I always bring with me their body lotions in small sizes, I adore the lavender one not only because of the scent but also because they are all very nourishing. Their 10ml glass bottle of Dr.Hauschka Blackthorn Toning body oil is great too so that you don’t need to carry with you the full bottle. The Dr.Hauschka soothing mask for the face is one of my favourites to calm redness and you can have it for 2-3 times at least. The same goes to any face cream; my choice is Dr.Hauschka Rose day cream which is a fragrant and nourishing solution for dryer skin types. And last but not least I emphasise the super-practical Dr.Hauschka Pen nail stick with neem oil for repairing and nourishing your cuticles and nails. It’s not a sample product, but it’s a great solution to take care of your nails everywhere. It also includes 3 additional new sticks to change.
When talking about nails I couldn’t not mention Organic glam nail polishes that I first tried a few months ago and that surprised me a lot! Not only that they have beautiful and modern shades of nail polishes and they are also non-toxic, but they stay very long and have an awesome pigmentation, plus a creamy lacquered effect. TOP choice!
Nourish skincare set – The discovery collection
Uh, this was an awesome discovery! This set has a little bit of something from every collection of this brand: Argan skin from the yellow line meant for all skin types, Kale from the green line for combination skin, Golden glow shimmer from the pink Radiance line for normal skin and Protect from orange line for dry skin. I love the consistency and smell of all these rich products that are actually in very generous sizes and they can last till a week. I find great the Argan line, especially Nourish Argan skin rescue, a serum with a gel texture that makes the skin soft, hydrated and smooth. Along with Nourish argan skin renew – their rich yet soft and quickly absorbing cream from the same line the skin is really soft and hydrated. For cleansing the face is very good Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliating Cleanser, a 3-in-1 cleanser, mask and facial – all in one product that cleanses and exfoliates gently the skin. For nourishing the eye area you have in the set the lovely Nourish Kale Biomimetic Eye Cream which is an intense treatment with the superfood Kale Oil Extract for tired, puffy eyes affected by dark circles and wrinkles. I find the most attractive the Nourish Golden Glow Illuminating Face Shimmer which is an illuminating moisturiser with light reflecting opalescent effect from bioactives that add a beautiful golden glow to the skin. Especially great for summer when you already catch the first tan! And you have another face cream from the Protect line which is Nourish Protect Hydrating Moisturiser rich in antioxidants to protect your skin and improve its elasticity. I absolutely recommend you to try this line, I will discover it more in depth too during time. This set is great to travel as well, but if you want greater sizes you can choose from specially selected sets for each skin type in bigger versions too.
M Picaut Mini facial kit
On the top picture you can see 3 tubes that are part of this kit along with a small tube of oil that I already finished and cannot find anymore the jar, so I used their original picture 🙂 This brand from Sweden was also a nice discovery that I used in 3 days while testing it and traveling too 🙂 It’s a very basic (and enough too!) collection with a 10ml tube of the M Picaut Nourishing face cleanser which is among my favorite cleansers; very nourishing, silky and soft, suited for dry, sensitive skin that leaves the skin radiant and silky. There is another cleansing product which is the M Picaut Exfoliating Peel Mask which is a gentle scrub and facial nourishing mask 2 in 1. This is really a fine solution especially for travel when you need to cleanse and nourish your skin! Regarding the last step there is M Picaut Skin Perfect Moisturiser and M Picaut Precious oil. The first one is a light cream in texture yet rich in ingredients while it has an anti ageing effect. Since I’m a face oils lover I preferred the Precious oil loaded with many luxurious certified organic oils of apricot, jojoba and seabuckthorn that nourish in depth the skin when dry or damaged.
Among other sets I also always recommend to try The organic pharmacy, Living nature, Spiezia and Trevarno for those who prefer minimalistic organic balmy products.
Any other travel sets that you love?
