Beauty and Makeup Products I Took With Me On A Holiday

I love seeing  what people take with them on a holiday so here is a post about what I had with me.

But first of all, here is a ‘holiday postcard’ 🙂 I am wearing Illamasqua’s Nomad. Not sure about my friend as she forgot the name of the polish.

I did not want to take tones of products with me as I often do so I have chosen the them very carefully.

Sun Protection:

  • La Roche Posay  Anthelios XL which I used a face sun screen
  • La Roche Posay Posthelios Hydrating After-Sun Melt-In Gel. This is a genius product and I will definitely write a detailed review about it later.
  • I also had a Garnier Ambre Solair body sunscreen which I forgot to include, as well as a deodorant and face cream.

Body Products (all are travel sized):

  • Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub. This is a very gentle finely milled scrub. Will write about it later.
  • Apivita Bergamot and  Green Tea Shower Gel. The scent is nice and refreshing and it leaves the skin clean and ready for a moisturizer.
  • Cowshed Grumpy Cow Uplifting Body Lotion. The scent is definitely uplifting and invigorating. This lotion is moisturizing but not sticky. I definitely want to try other Cowshed lotions now.

Hair Products:

I took Apivita Proploine Shampoo and Nourishing and Repairing Mask for Dry-Dehydrated Hair with me. Shampoo is in the Mane ‘N Tail bottle as I did not want to take a whole 250 ml bottle. Both products worked brilliant on my hair after the sun and sea. You can read my review here.

Extra Products:

  • I had only only perfume with me and it was Jo Malone’s Blackberry and Bay cologne. Read about it here.
  • I also had Elemis’ Pro-Collagen  Advanced Eye Treatment which I also plan to write about later.

As for the makeup, I have realized that most of it was from Daniel Sandler only when I took the photo.

I don’t really wear makeup on holiday so I hardly took anything with me, as you can see. I only can’t believe that I forgot an eye pencil, I was in a hurry and took the brush instead of it by mistake. Luckily, my friend shared her liner  with me.  There is also a mascara missing on the photo but I did take one. Dior Addict Extase which I love.


Daniel Sandler Tangerine Lipshine and YSL blush swatched


  • Daniel Sandler Lipshine in Buff  and Tangerine. I was using Tangerine every single day combined with YSL’s blush. Loved this lip product very much, so expect a review soon.
  • Balmshell Lip Gloss in Shopaholic.  Perfect baby pink, I plan to write about it soon, too.
  • My, almost finished, Burt’s Bees lip balm which I always have with me. Reviewed here.


  • Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in medium. I can’t live without mine.
  • Anastasia Lash Genius. I have raved about it non-stop already. Definitely a must-have for me.
  • Daniel Sandler Billion Dollar Body Shimmer. I have used it as an eye shadow and on the arms and legs. Will write a review soon.

  1. Love your picks Marina! Your nail polish is gorgeous, wondering why I don’t have it in my collection?? Do you recommend the Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub? I’m always on the lookout for the best body scrub and have not found it, yet! Looking forward to your review 🙂

    1. Hi lovely,
      Thanks! Nomad is really beautiful, one of my favourite nail polishes.
      As for the scrub, it really depends on what kind of scrubs do you like! I personally like my scrub to be more grainy, salt of sugar one. I want to try Clarin’s Toning Body Polisher next. So far my favourites have to be Elemis’ Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow and also this one from New Zealand’s brand
