My Travel Makeup and Skincare | India 2017

Hey guys! I’m back (hopefully to stay) with a very summery, holiday themed post. I’m going to be telling you what I took makeup and skincare wise on my trip to India. I knew it would be really hot so it’d be basic and stripped back but I wasn’t quite prepared for how busy and therefore tired I’d be. I wore a bit in the evenings if we went out for a meal but overall I just didn’t feel like wearing that much makeup and in the end just let the sun get to my skin. I did however use all the skincare I took with me. So let’s goooooooooo…

La Roche Posay Anthelios Cream

This sun cream is so amazing. It feels like a really nice moisturizer on the skin and doesn’t leave a white cast at all which has happened when I’ve tried others. It didn’t break me out at all which is what I’m always anxious about with sun cream. It also works really well with makeup over the top and doesn’t affect it at all.


The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

I’ve loved this moisturizer for a while but on holiday I found this really helped with sunburn and acted as an aftersun which was really good because my body after sun is so sticky which is not nice on ya face.


The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5

Again this was really nice as an after sun because it’s so cooling.


Balance Me Tinted Wonder Eye Cream (soz it’s a bit blurry)


Nivea Sun Protect SPF 30

I didn’t actually use this a lot because I ended up buying the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream in duty free so I used that instead. It’s amazing!


OPI Nail Lacquer ‘Go With The Lava Flow’ and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer


MAC Studio Fix Powder


Tanya Burr Rosy Flush Cheek Palette


Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Gel


Maybelline Colour Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow ‘On and on Bronze’


Tanya Burr Enchanted Dream Palette


Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara


Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick


Hope you’ve all had an amazing summer!

A Chilled Night In

I thought I’d run you through the products I use to have a pamper night because having time to yourself to relax is really important especially if you’re feeling low after the festive season is over.

The first thing I like to do is have a bath because they are just the ULTIMATE relax, physically (so nice fore aching muscles) and mentally to just block everything out, Personally I like to watch a bit of YouTube in the bath or read a book.

In the Bath

Lush Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb


Zoella Sugar Dip and Pretty Polished


Out of the bath

Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion; Simple Moisturising Facial Wash; Nivea Makeup Remover; Pixi Glow Tonic; The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Lotion


Another little treat you can add for extra pamper is some chocolate (I definitely did!)

Hope you enjoyed reading! I’m hoping to have a few more blog posts up soon and a pretty exciting on mid-February if all goes to plan!!

Thanks for reading

Empties / Products I’ve Used Up

I find it very satisfying to completely use up a product whether its makeup or skincare. It could be the excitement of knowing I’ll have to go out and buy another one if I loved it or I’ll get to try something else if I didn’t. Here is a few things I’ve used up recently.

Nivea Daily Essential Double Effect Eye Makeup Remove

This is the best eye makeup remover I have ever used (big claim, I know) it gets of every bit of eye makeup even the longest staying eyeliners and the toughest waterproof mascaras


The Body Shop Vitamin E SPF15 Moisture Lotion

I have used this moisturiser for about 3 years now and I love it, I have sensitive skin which gets really dehydrated and dry in the winter and is dry/normal in the summer and this works really well. It makes my skin feel soft and smooth!

Rimmel Match Perfection Illuminating Concealer

This concealer is so good. It has great coverage and as the name would suggest it is also illuminating. I can get away with using this on blemishes as well as under my eyes but if you go for more of a matte skin look then this might not be your cup of tea as it is quite glowy


L’Occitane Light Comforting Cream

This is a really nice product which is really hydrating for my skin type but unfortunately it broke me out really badly. I won’t buy this again but if you have dry but insensitive skin then this might work for you.

L’Oreal Paris Dermo-Expertise Gentle Makeup Remover

This product is great if you don’t wear waterproof mascara. As it says it is gentle so it feel really nice and refreshing on your eyes but isn’t very powerful if you have layers and layers of eye makeup to remove (if that’s the case go for the Nivea one mentioned above!) but it does smell really nice and leaves your eye area feeling really soft and smooth.


Hope you enjoyed reading and maybe this gave you some ideas for products to try out.
