What I’d pack: *Estee Lauder Modern Muse 20ml | Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic | *Dr.Weil for Origins Mega Bright Dark Circle Minimizer | *Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector | *Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum | Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mini Mascara | John Freida Luxurious Volume Hairspray

Over New Year me and Rob headed to Amsterdam for a few days with some close friends, although we booked the trips a few months before I was honestly so unprepared! The day before I realised I hadn’t changed up any money, organised our insurance, purchased any travel sized products – eep! The run up to Christmas was just so busy I’d almost forgot we were going away.

I ended up raiding my skincare/beauty drawers to round up any under 100ml products that I had to take with me that would be fine in my hand luggage. I thought I’d put a post together on great products I’ve picked up over time that double up as great travel sized products and even handbag essentials!

The *Estee Lauder Modern Muse 20ml is one of my favourite scents and it’s so handy to have a miniature size to pop in my travel bag for a city break or even in my bag if I’m out for the day. I packed my trusty Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic as it was a great pick me up on New Years day after a heavy night drinking. 

Talking of late nights, both *Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum and *Dr.Weil for Origins Mega Bright Dark Circle Minimizer are so handy to have on hand when travelling as long days exploring and late nights can often leave me feeling a little ropey so these were both my go-to rescue products for the trip! I’m also going to put together my top travel sized products for a hot city break so keep an eye out for that in the coming weeks!

What are your city break essentials?

    I am just like that and procrastinate with packing especially my beauty products. Glad you had a good time.
