I made my first trip since getting samples through beauty boxes. Wonderful! This meant I could pack small travel sized cosmetics. In the past I would decant large products into small bottles and then they would all look the same and I need to tell my shampoo from my toner by smell. Not always easy.
|I thought this photo was fun, although you cannot really see the cosmetics|
That little bag on the left was large enough for everything I packed
Packing samples turned out to be harder than expected. The problem was that some of my samples were really small. Some small samples I have been using for a while and I had no idea how much was left in the tube. This meant that I often packed more than one product to ensure I have enough. Packing 3 samples kind of defeated the whole travel light idea and running out of an expensive product like moisturiser while on holiday would not be cool. Packing samples I have never used before was also kind of scary. How would I know that it would work?
This was a different hotel. Look - toothbrush in the hand.
All worked out well. Nothing ran out. Nothing was a totally horrible product I was forced to use. But I did not like having so little choice of what to use. I only packed one eye shadow set and that was not nice. I did not pack my hair protector at all. I thought I had lived for years without it, I can do it for one week. And I really, really missed it. I guess that says something about it.
