I’m heading back out to Spain very soon, so I thought I would share with you what I pack in my travel cosmetic bag.
These items I cannot live without when I’m away from home!

Jo Browne Perfume
I use Floral Note. It is an elegant floral composition where sparkling bergamot and grapefruit rest upon a full blooming heart of wild jasmine, tuberose, lilac and orange blossom twisted with lemongrass. Â Sandalwood and myrrh form the base with a whisper of a green violet leaf.
I love that it is Irish, ideal for travel, eco-friendly with a bamboo case and no nasty ingredients.

Kontanicals Essential Oils
I bring my Irish Kotanicals Essentials Oils; Lavender for its calming and relaxing properties, Frankincense for anti-ageing and Eucalyptus for its fresh and stimulating scent.

Naturally Fresh Deodorant
A simple effective natural deodorant. Made with shea butter, coconut oil, corn-starch and bicarbonate of soda this deodorant contains no aluminium, no preservatives, no chemicals – 100% natural. And it works! Scented with patchouli and lemon essential oils this goes on easy and will keep you fresh all day. I started using this when I had my battle with cancer and have not looked back.
Naturally Ageing Gracefully Face Cream
A shea butter and jojoba-based moisturiser packed full of skin loving ingredients. Frankincense, neroli and rose geranium are a trio of skin-loving essential oils that have been found to be particularly good at slowing down the ageing of our skin and neroli will even heal already damaged skin as it promotes new cell regeneration. Frankincense has a wonderfully calming effect on the mind so really take your time with this one and inhale the wonderful oils and a little goes a long way!
Naturally Honey & Calendula Lip Balm
Honey & Calendula Lip balm. Calendula and local honey keep your lips super soft and beeswax will keep them protected from the harshest weather or the driest air-con! Sweet orange oil makes this balm lip-smackingly yummy!
Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation
This liquid foundation builds from light to medium coverage and gives you a naturally luminous complexion. It helps to boost cellular respiration for a ‘plumping up’ effect. Containing vitamin C & E which helps to prevent the signs of ageing this oil-free formula with SPF 25 builds from light to medium coverage while feeling barely there.

Estee Lauder Mascara
Love this mascara as it does not dry out my lashes and enhances the length.

I use number 371 – pink passion lipstick that is lovely as it stays that colour and is moist and lasts up to eight hours.

L’Oréal Age Perfect Face Cream
I use this face cream at night as it hydrates my skin after taking off my makeup. I put a little in a small pot when I travel.

I put all these items in my Marimekko Cosmetic bag.
Extras I Travel With
Connemara Seaweed Seasoning
This item is not in my wash bag, but in my luggage, as I always bring it to share with my Spanish pals. Connemara Seaweed Seasoning as I add to my dishes when cooking in my apartment in Spain.
