Berlin: miniature travel essentials

1.) Sure ‘Long Lasting Protection’ in Cotton – I’ve been a fan of this ultra dry deodorant for a while now. It smells great and the size is perfect for my hand luggage!

2.) Penhaligons miniature perfume in ‘Iris Prima’ I got this perfume from a recent event that I attended for Penhaligons, it smells of gorgeous and is the perfect handbag size for when you need a quick refresh!

3.) Caudalie ‘Vinoperfect Radiance Serum’ – I’ve been using this serum for around 3 weeks now and it’s made a huge difference to my skin! My skin has been looking a little dull recently and in need of some sunshine but this serum has really brightened up my skin!

 4.) Laura Mercier ‘Souffle Body Creme’ – This body cream will be perfect for popping off after the shower for our evenings out in the city… and it smells of Vanilla which is my favourite scent!! *swoons*

5.) Bumble & Bumble ‘Surf Spray’ – This stuff works absolute miracles! To anyone that hasn’t tried it I can’t recommend it enough if your trying to create a ‘beach hair’ look!

6.) Tresemme ‘Texture Style Backcomb Dust’ – I’ll put a sprinkle of this on my hair once i’ve washed and dried it for some extra volume in the evening, great size too and it’s super light so it wont weigh down your bags!

7.) Barry M Gelly Nails in shade ‘Lychee’ – This gelly polish is one of my favourite shades, I love the high shine and two coats will last my three day trip just fine so I won’t have to worry about re-applying.

8.) Champneys ‘Distant Shores Shower Mousse’ – This smells divine!!! It’s such a perfect size and weighs next to nothing, our trip is only three days so this is a great size product for our city break.

9.) Sensai ‘Silky Purifying Cleansing Cream’ – This is step one of the two Sensai products, I always feel I need a good cleanser when on a city break as your skin always feels clogged up at the end of the day! 

10.) Sensai ‘Silky Purifying Creamy Soap’ – I’m a massive fan of the Sensai full size products so i’m super excited to take my two miniatures away with me to keep my skin clean and refreshed.

11.) Champneys ‘Distant Shores Body Scrub’ – If you haven’t tried any of the ‘Distant Shores’ collection yet I highly recommend you do! I can’t describe how beautiful the smell is, it’s like holiday in a pot! The miniatures are so perfect for holiday too and can be bought from Boots. 

12.) Laura Mercier ‘Flawless Skin Makeup Remover’ – I use this product with cotton pads to remove my eye make up at the end of the day, it’s a real gentle and cleansing product which is great for all skin types! This is the perfect sample size if you’re looking to try!

13.) Bioderma ‘Sensibio H2O Solution’ – I don’t know anyone who hasn’t tried Bioderma and fallen in love with it! My skin is quite naturally oily and it’s the perfect make up remover for me! If you’re skeptical about trying it then pick up this sample size for under £5!

14.) Bumble & Bumble ‘Surf Foam Wash Shampoo’ – I haven’t tried this shampoo yet as I’ve been saving it for our trip away, I’ve been super impressed with the Surf Spray so i’m sure it won’t disappoint!! 

15.) Bumble & Bumble ‘Surf Creme Rinse Conditioner’ – Again, I haven’t tried the conditioner yet but it smells amazing!! You can buy the shampoo, conditioner & surf spray as a set which is perfect for short breaks and holidays! I’ll definitely be re-buying just for convenience! 

Me and Rob are off to Berlin this Sunday for a short city break until Wednesday (I find out my university results the day we come back… ahhhh!! Super excited/nervous & scared all rolled into one!!) Anyway, I was just packing some stuff up for the trip and thought i’d share my ‘miniature travel essentials’ with you so you can see what products I can’t live without for a few days!!

What are your travel essentials? Anything I need to pick up for next time?

    Hayley you are a genius! Everytime I travel (and unfortunately that happens VERY frequently) I get half of my stuff in their normal size!
    Where did you get all these?
    I might visit Boots one day soon.

    Have fun in Berlin and good luck with your results!

    I hope you enjoy your vacation! These are all wonderful products to bring and the smaller size really does make them more convenient!
