This week, I had an overnight stay away from home. I couldn’t predict what toiletries would be in the hotel and I was limited as to what I could physically take with me.
Skincare is paramount, but then I couldn’t sacrifice bodily hygiene! And, we can all relate to having a bursting makeup bag that simply cannot be condensed! Travel sized products are expensive, £2.50 for a tiny bottle of standard shower gel? What about my micellar water, could I even get this in a travel size?
This is when I discovered Caudalie’s Travel Set, a premium brand that included all of the essentials. So, I wasn’t just paying for your standard high street brands with a marked up price, I was getting a little bottle of luxury – five actually! For £14.00, this roughly works out at about the same price as the leading high street store’s miniatures – but with an added travel bag.
This set includes:
– Micellar Cleansing Water (30ml)
– Moisturising Sorbet (15ml)
– Gentle Conditioning Shampoo (30ml)
– Rose de Vigne Shower Gel (30ml)
– Nourishing Body Lotion (30ml)
Skincare and personal hygiene all taken care of! Plus, I liked the clear bag so that I didn’t have to root about for which product I needed.
The shower gel and body lotion each had a floral scent, which is paraben free. My skin felt clean, moisturised and soothed after my shower. They are 30mls, which is more than enough for multiple showers, but is a great size for air travel too.
I found the shampoo gentle and suitable for daily use – it didn’t dry or strip my hair of any moisture.
The micellar water is what really sold this set to me, it meant that I didn’t have to carry a heavy bottle with me, knowing that I’d only need a nights worth. It wasn’t oily like previous brands I’ve tried and didn’t leave a residue. It absorbed quickly and helped to remove my makeup.
But, my favourite product had to be the moisturising sorbet. Suitable for sensitive skin and it smells simply divine! It melts into you skin, just like you’d expect a sorbet to. It’s smooth and calming on the skin. I will be buying this in full size!
Are you planning any trips in the near future?
