What Beauty Products I Took on Holiday with me!

I haven’t mentioned it on my blog yet but I recently went on holiday for 10 days, to the South of France with my family.  We stayed in the most beautiful villa in a town called Grasse, which happens to be the perfume capital of the world (post on this coming soon!).  Anyway, whilst I was there I filmed a video showing what I took along with my on holiday!

Products I took away with me!

I think I took a fairly good amount of products with me, not too many as I have done in the past but I still had choice when applying makeup.  Stand out products which I got a lot of use from was:

Body & Hair:
SuperGoop SPF 50 Sunscreen
Haiwaan tropic Dry Oil Spray SPF 20 (only for legs!)
Kiehls Ultra Light Daily UV Defence SPF 50 Face Moisturizer
Batiste Dry Shampoo
Caudelie Divine Oil Spray (for moisturizing body after washing)
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream (for lips!)

Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette (beautiful neutral shades for daily use)
L’Oreal Super Liner in Black
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara
Sleek Au Natural Blusher
Urban Decay Primer Potion (a must-have in the heat)!
I run through all of the products I took with me in the video above so have a gander at that if you’re interested! 

What are your holiday beauty essentials?  Do you think I took too much?

    I ALWAYS take too much and end up not using half of it! I usually take a tinted moisturiser, waterproof mascara, eyebrow pencil and bright lipsticks and glosses to change up my look

    The Bobbi Brown palette is soooo pretty, and I would love to get it, but I have so many palettes at the moment I feel guilty for even trying to make up excuses to get it… Xx

    Good stuff..those tips really work out..looking forward to learn more from you..keep posting.

    Oh Katie, you didn't take too much beauty stuff with you. Each and every item are very well thought of and are practical for your Holiday getaway. I just wanted to say that I purchased the SuperGoop SPF 50 Sunscreen after watching your vid on your channel and I'm absolutely loving it. It applies evenly and doesn't leave a heavy or sticky feeling behind. I think it's my new HG body sunscreen!

    I have difficulties packing light makeup/skincare products for Holiday getaways. I mean, you can never bring too much beauty stuff with you. You did well and brought just the right amount of essentials to stay pretty and protected on your vacay. I was intrigued with Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defence SPF 50 Face Moisturizer you mentioned in this video so I had to buy it at Nordstrom along with some pieces from the Guerlain and Chanel Holiday collections. I'm very excited to try it for a tennis match this weekend. Thanks for the recommendation!
