We continue the topic of relevance for the holiday season: How to cram everything you need into one camping cosmetic bag
.Part 1 (here)
discussed shower accessories. The logical (and my favorite) continuation is moisturizing the face and body.
Here are the heroes of today's post:
I will make a reservation: here is not my favorite Clarins deodorant (it is written about him here
), because after several force majeure events he lies with me separately, although there would be enough space for him in the traveling cosmetic bag.
And now back to the contents of the cosmetic bag ...
1. Melvita Rose Water - Extraordinary Rose Water
Another multifunctional tool (although as such is not stated).
I use rose water for the following purposes:
1) it can wash the remnants of cosmetics (for example, stains of mascara) after washing;
2) skin toning - the main purpose;
3) moisturizing the skin (rose water can argue with serum in the quality of moisturizing);
4) removal of irritations and peeling (after flights and water changes - an urgent problem);
5) use as a moisturizing and soothing mask.
When traveling, I use
Melvita water in two ways
: (a) pour a little into the hands and distribute it with my fingertips over the face, including the area around the eyes, or
(b) apply it liberally on a cotton pad and use it as a lotion on the problem (dry / inflamed) area.
In the first embodiment, it turns out the economical use of funds as a tonic, in the second - a mask of local exposure.
Rose water has an excellent natural composition
and a wonderful smell:consistencyOutput:
Use term: more than a month
Cost: up to 1200 rubles (in the sales season I bought 100 ml for 400 rubles )
Rose water is an excellent tool for traveling and for home use (especially for owners of dry skin) - a worthy replacement for tonic.
2. L'Occitane Budy Ultra Rich Lotion 15% Shea Butter - Nourishing Body Milk
The L'Occitane brand takes care of travelers very much and offers a lot of products in a travel format (I think every second traveler had something from L'Occitane in the makeup bag).
I can’t say that I like all the L'Occitane products and they fit perfectly, but Ultra Rich Lotion is my favorite among the brand’s products and has been purchased more than once for regular home use in large volumes.
Ultra Rich Lotion accompanies me on every trip
, because my pain is dry skin
, and hotels usually offer lotions that are too light and contain a fair amount of glycerin.
Reasons for love and understanding with this product:
1) is quickly absorbed;
2) has a neutral smell;
3) perfectly moisturizes and nourishes the skin (which is important after "drying" in the airplane);
4) soothes the skin after contact with a new type of water or with a "hotel" shower gel;
5) contains a lot of shea butter, not glycerin (which dries the skin);
6) economically consumed - 75 ml is enough for about a month of regular use;
7) Suitable as a hand cream.composition
Use term: more than 2 years
Cost: up to 650 rubles per 75 ml
A wonderful tool for dry skin care in all conditions: at home, after the pool, on the move.
3. La Mer - Creme de La Mer Moisturizer
Creme de La Mer has been my regular care for many years. I am very faithful (
suddenly, my husband reads this post
), so I’m not changing La Mer with anyone.
I always take a camcorder with me
Of course, I already wrote about this cream before - here.
4. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Eye
I read a lot about SK-II in Western blogs and best of the best and decided that I really want to try something from this brand. The desire was fueled by the fact that SK-II was not represented in Russia, and the distorted logic whispered: " If we don’t, then it’s 100% cool, they’re buying up without having to bring it to the border ..."
In general, on one of the trips in duteics, I reached the SK-II and, despite space prices, I bought a couple of products, including this essence for the eyes.
The essence, in the understanding of SK-II, is between cream and serum. You can use it yourself, you can (preferably) under the cream.
What can I say ... neither under the cream, nor on my own, I did not appreciate this essence.
A sensational product does nothing:
1) moisturizes, but without fanaticism: really dry skin will not lead to feelings;
2) is quickly absorbed;
3) does not offer any light reflectors and special effects in the fight against dark circles;
4) wrinkles miraculously (and not miraculous) does not help to remove;
5) does not cause irritation (and thanks for that);
6) quite economical;
7) decorative cosmetics are well on the essence.
In general - the average light moisturizing eye cream for a lot of money.
At home, after three weeks of unsuccessful use, I stopped loving him, and for travel - a completely compact replacement for another La Mer can.
I apply the essence after the rose water Melvita and get a very decent hydration.
Then concealer - about which later - I polish the lack of sleep composition
Use period: more than 4 months
Cost: up to 95 USD rubles per 15 ml (I pay and pay)
Rating: 3- (this is for such and such money, such and such quality !!!!)
The only outsider moved to a travel bag for reluctance to use it at home.
5. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Sinhronised Recovery Complex II - Universal Night Restore Complex II
The tool, the love with which I developed after the first probe. When I woke up in the morning with a perfect, radiant face and studied the composition more carefully, I realized that Estee Lauder produced the perfect night care product and went to buy
Why I love and carry whey with me:
1) does not clog, but, on the contrary, cleanses the pores (true, true ... it is VISIBLE). The first few days of the rash may intensify, but then the skin becomes much cleaner;
2) a composition that is ideal for combination skin;
3) can be used as an independent remedy for the night - moisturizing for combination skin in the summer or for oily in any season is enough;
4) does not conflict with other care;
5) format convenient for dosing;
6) despite the number of hours of sleep allows you to wake up with a "rested face."
For travel it is important that the jar is plastic (read “light” and “will not break”), but from an aesthetic point of view, I would prefer to see this product in glass ... Advanced Night Repair is worthy of glass ...composition
Duration of use: 1 month
Cost: about 4000 rubles per 30 ml
We finish the sim with leaving, Part 3
will be about decorating ...
