What's In My Travel Bag?

 I am going away for the weekend tomorrow and I thought I'd show you what I am taking.

I attended Grace and Eva's #livebloggers event on Tuesday which was so much fun and got to meet some fabulous bloggers! Anyway the goody bag was amazing so I am taking a few bits from it and one of the lovely items was this Dirty Works wash bag. Perfect timing eh?!

As you can see I have quite a few sample products so decided to take some along to use up. If I was taking full size I wouldn't take so many things haha!

So a quick run down. Makeup wise I am not taking too much. Nars foundation, YSL mascara, Benefit primer and high beam are all sample sizes. Elf under eye concealer and brow kit (probably don't necessarily need that!) Benefit cream eyeshadow, Inika black eyeliner*, Revlon just bitten balm, Bobbi Brown concealer, Clarins powder, a couple of brushes and my fav blush by Kanebo* - see review here

I am most probably taking too many beauty products, ah well! For hair I have a mini Bumble and Bumble salt spray* - I won't bother blow drying my hair so I'll spray this in for texture. I have L'Occitane shampoo and conditioner (fab products!) but not enough conditioner so taking a sachet of Davines Volumnising conditioner*. I also have L'Occitane's shower oil. 

For the face I have  Ren's cleansing gel and day cream. I also have 2 small samples of Elemis day and night cream but not enough hence the Ren and a Matis mini night cream. Murad serum, L'Occitane  toner, Benefit eye potent and Elemental Herbology eye serum and last but not least the Etat Pur cleansing water and blemish treatment.

A couple of random's - Monu Rose mist, Tangle Teezer, Sure deodorant, soap sample, Ahava body lotion, hand sanitiser, White Glo toothpaste, Figs and Grape hand cream, Dr Bronners sample, Fendi perfume sample, Green People's face spf and Muji cotton wool pads.

Phew, hope that wasn't too boring! Hopefully I'll use up most of the samples as I am fed up of looking at them and  I thought they would all fit it in the one bag but um obviously not!

Would you take this much for a weekend away?

  1. What a lovely spotty travel bag :)

  2. The bag is so pretty, but that is a lot of stuff for one weekend!!


  3. Cant wait to use my bag too! Your taking away some great products. Lots of samples which is a great idea to cut down on space / weight. Very handy. I love REN samples - I have a few waiting for when I go away. Looking forward to using them!
    Have a great weekend :o)

  4. Personally I wouldn't take that much!! Just a few essentials. But I understand that this is a good opportunity to use up your samples lol!


    1. I wouldn't normally take that much haha!

  5. Travelling is the perfect time to use up samples, I am going on a trip next month and I have been stock piling :)

    1. I need to go away more so I can use more samples :D

  6. I love that dirty works bag, I haven't seen that before and I always look at their stuff when I am shopping in Sainsbury's as I really like the things I have tried. Wowser that is a lot of stuff for a weekend, but I suppose it's understandable as you are trying to use your samples up. I love samples for just that reason, you can take a few different ones and try them out. x


Thank you for all your lovely comments. You can also Tweet me @HoneyGo_Lightly :)
