What I Take With Me To Scotland

As this one gets posted, I will probably find myself somewhere around Glasgow. So this post will be about what I take with me, beauty wise
To start off, all these little things are put in the black beauty bag with the golden studs you see at the top left of the picture. I got this at Top Shop in London last year. It's a medium sized bag, but I only allow myself to take as much beauty stuff as that bag can hold. On to the products!
The top three products are hair related. From l.t.r. you see a travel size of the L'Oréal Elnett So Sleek hairspray. This is anti frizz, which I reckon will come in quite handy in Scotland. Next the Garnier Dry Shampoo, which has a citrussy scent that I like. Lastly the Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur serum. This helps keep my hair smooth and healthy when I blow dry it. I think it has new packaging now though. Lastly you can see my little black Tangle Teaser on the top right.
The rest of the top row is skin care. First you can see the Eucerin Sun Fluid Mattifying sunscreen with SPF 30. I love this because it does not leave a white film or any greasiness on the skin, whilst providing a good base for any makeup that goes on top. The orange lid is Nivea Q10 Energy Day Cream. It is supposed to make your skin look energized. I don't really notice any of that, but it does a good job at moisturizing my skin, so it'll do. In the two little jars beneath the day cream I depotted some of the Nivea Q10 Night Cream (pretty heavy, which I like at night) and the Yes to Carotts Makeup Removing Cleaner (works okay, but I will not repurchase it). To finish the skin care I bought cotton pads and a mini Bioderma. To the right of the Bioderma are two mini Colgates and a travel toothbrush, which I got on an airplane in January.
Now the makeup bits. On the left is the Maybelline Dream Lumi Highlighting Concealer in 01 Ivory. I find it covers well, but can be a bit drying. To the right of that we have my beloved Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in 52. Next the Rimmel Stay Matte powder (003 Peach Glow) and Natural Bronzer (021 Sunlight). To apply these we have the Real Techniques Multi Task Brush and Expert Face Brush. For mascara I take the Maybelline The Rocket Volume one. Below that we have the L'Oréal Color Riche Eyebrow pencil in 303 Deep Brown. I like the fact that this pencil is hard, so it stays put all day. Then we have the Rimmel Scandaleyes in Bronze, which is just so lovely and longlasting.
The last section is on the bottom right. First you see the Maybelline Baby Lips in 05 Quenched with SPF 20. For a pop of color I am taking the Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake, a beautiful baby pink. And last but not least my favorite summer scent: Eau de Pamplemousse Rose by Hermès.
Now that I've written it down, it seems like a lot of products... But it fits in the bag, so it's okay haha! See you next week!
