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.

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!

A Couple of Skin Saviours

Recently my skin has been awful with a capital A. It’s been so dry and dehydrated and I have been desperate to fix it so I’ve been hunting for things that might work.

Bioderma Hydrabio Gel-Creme (£14)

I came across this moisturiser in a little independent pharmacy in my local town and the things it says on the tube sounded promising so I bought it. Bioderma is a brand that I have never used before but I have heard a lot of good things about their micellar waters so I thought it would be worth giving a go. The moisturisers I’ve used in the past have always been a bit meh, they were never quite right and most of them either broke me out or left my skin feeling soft but tight which I HATE! Although the moisturiser says it is for normal to combination skin, it is so so hydrating and makes my skin feel really soft, smooth and best of all, no dry patches! I also love that the tube has a pump on it, not just a squeezy tube.

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 (£6)

I have never used a serum before but I heard saw Fleur De Force talk about this brand and how it works (you can watch her video here) and I thought it sounded like what my skin might need so I gave it a go. Let me tell you, I love this stuff. Although the combination of this and the moisturiser above are what has helped my skin I reckon most of it is down to this, and it’s so affordable! It feels like I’m giving my skin a long drink when I put this on and you only need a tiny amount too! Seriously love!!

Thanks so much for reading!
