Travel Sized Beauty,

Sunday, 12 November 2017


Whilst in Sephora during our trip to the US I was sucked in by the aisle of temptation... For those of you that haven't had the pleasure of stepping into a Sephora store, this is the area by the tills full to the brim of travel sized offerings from some of your favourite beauty brands. It takes some serious will power to get to the till without adding something to your basket. In this particular instance, I decided to grab a few items which I hadn't had the pleasure of trying yet.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask - I'd wanted to try this mask for such a long time, so when i saw the tavelsized version I had to give it a try. It's a really hydrating overnight mask that my skin is loving! Personally for me it's a mask that, at the moment I only need to use once a week or so. But as first impressions go, I am really loving it and will probably repurchase in the larger sized tube when I finish. 

Stila Liquid Lipsticks Trio - Because I am terrible at remembering to wear lipsticks, a lot of lip products get forgotten & ultimately expire. The fact that this trio came in miniature form, was ideal for me. Their small size means not only can I try them out before committing to a full sized item. I am also more likely to actually finish the product up. This trio includes the ever so popular Patina, alongside the lighter shades 'Baci' & 'Perla'.

IT Cosmetics CC Cream - Well! Once this little tube is finished, I will be purchasing this full 32ml tube for sure. After hearing many a youtuber rave about this product I had to give it a go. The Aisle of temptation provided me with this tiny tube to try and it was love at first use! I only need a tiny amount for my whole face, which I buff in with a kabuki brush. It's the prefect product for the days where I don't want a heavy base but all of the coverage!

Kat Von D 'Saint' Perfume - Rather than go down the free perfume sample route, I just went all guns blazing & purchased the handbag version of this scent. Whilst I do think the free sample vials are the way to go when it comes to trying a new scent, I just couldn't resist this pretty 10ml offering. This is the one of the first perfumes by Kat Von D & I am in love. I will be getting myself a full sized bottle for sure.,, perhaps one to pop on the Christmas list!

Sephora Favourites: Lashstash to go - Mascara is something I like to switch up often. Therefore purchasing travelsized versions like those in this handy little set is ideal. I've actually only used 1 of these so far (Too faced better than sex) so I still have some time to get through the others. Travel minis are a great way to try a different mascara without the worry of wasting your money if you don't get on with it.

As you can see I'm pretty happy with all the minis that I purchased, it's likely I'll be repurchasing some of them in their full sized glory. That's the beauty of these product minatures, you don't have to fully commit before deciding if its something that works for you. They are always pretty reasonably priced and they are within the 100ml limit for when you travel! Win Win!
