So I am getting ready for the long 3 day weekend and heading up to San Fran. I wanted to share with you my favorite beauty miniatures and see what some of your favorites are when you travel!
I am actually a minimalist when it comes to packing (that way I have more room for shopping lol) so I tend to pack sample size products that I have collected when I travel!
Who else has no shame when it comes to asking for samples?! *Hands up emoji
I actually refuse at this point to invest in a product without knowing for sure that it will work for me. So I absolutely ask for samples! And I would actually encourage you to ask your esthetician because truth is, we love giving away our secrets. And we would rather you sample than be disappointed in what we recommend. So don’t be shy – ask to try!
So here is what I’ve got so far in my bag! Warning: objects in picture are much smaller than they appear 😉
The only product here that is not a sample is the bumble and bumble pret-a-powder, an amazing dry shampoo..and one I never travel without! I featured it because the travel size is small but goes a long way and it’s only $12 at Sephora. Worth it!
I have been breaking out like crazy in the LA heat, especially along my hairline. So I am taking the PCA Skin acne gel to help with those annoying break outs. I also packed the Active Serum by Is Clinical and the Lytera 2.0 by Skinmedica. Both of these are mini treatments and help with my melasma and discoloration. I like to layer them under my SPF and alternate them in the evening.
And I looooove Skinceutials trial sizes you guys! They really give you a lot to try and the eye cream sample can last you a few weeks..long enough to see subtle changes! I love it under my concealer and at night obviously.
The last sample here is Latisse. I wore lash extensions for over a year and they completely destroyed my natural lash, so latisse has saved me. Allergan does promotions on their brilliant distinctions site where if you purchase a full size you get a sample free. The sample lasts about 8 weeks for me and I try not to miss a day, so this liquid gold is going with me!
Are you like me and leave behind your full size products when you travel? Which ones are your faves?
Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!
