My Travel Essentials

Hey lovely, 
I am heading off to Batam this weekend so I decided to just show you what’s my must have for this short trip. Firstly if you are planning on a short trip to a hot country these are what I recommend to bring along.
Small Bag
You want to travel light when walking around exploring so having a small bag helps to lighten up the weight especially if you are like me who tends to put a lot of stuff in a big bag and ends up not using. Small bags helps by forcing you to reduce the amount of items you can carry hence only bringing the important stuff.

Comfortable Shoe
Long walk can causes footsore hence you want to avoid heels and opt for a comfortable pair of shoe especially if those flooring are uneven. This white pair I have is a slip on and definitely comfortable to walk in.
Shades/Sunglass
Since I’m hitting a location that’s scream hot sun, shades is a must as you do not want to be screeching your eyes the whole time. This little guy is going to protect those beautiful eyes of yours.

Mirror
Not exactly essential for the trip but it is to me. I often get pieces of food stuck in between those gap in my teeth so I am super embarrassed to only realise later that I have been talking to people with a piece of food stuck. I wished they would have told me but most of us didn’t have the courage to tell the person. I got this super cute two-sided mirror recently and can skip embarrassing myself after indulging my food.

Since it’s a short trip, you don’t want to bring a lot of products with you so this is when travel-size products or sample would step in! I love all my sample size products as it literally reduce the amount/size of items you have to bring such as facial wash and moisturiser. Here are my current favourite beauty products.

1. Shu Uemura Chrome Brightening & Polishing Gentle Cleansing Oil
This product allow me to enjoy putting on makeup because this cleansing oil is all you need as an amazing makeup remover as well as facial cleanser. I have been using this as a daily facial cleanser and still enjoying it. Now I don’t need to bring a separately makeup remover as this remove everything! 

2. Lotus Youth Preserve Face cream with Super 7 Complex
An everyday moisturiser both morning and night. Smell amazing and not thick as well.

3. Innisfree Green Persimmon Pore Essence
I got this recently at Innisfree store for buying things and little did I know I would enjoy this as it leave my face matte and smooth. I believe I would be heading back to get the full-size, glad to got to try it.

4. Laneign [Pore Control] BB Cushion SPF50+ PA+++
Having a sun protection makeup base allows you to skip bringing a facial sunscreen. This one is able to protect your face from the sun, serve as a makeup base as well as pore control. That’s a winner!

5. The Face Shop Natural Sun Eco Power Long-lasting Sun Cream
If you want to skip putting on makeup yet want sun protection as well as a bit of base to balance out your skin tone then opt for this 2-in-1 Sun Cream where you can use it on your body as well! It’s beige in tone so this can help to balance out your skin tone acting as a base.

6. Fresh The Sugar Lip Treatment in Cherry
Want a SPF lip balm with colour, this is the one to go! If you prefer a little more neutral tone then opt for this lip treatment in Petal which I am totally in love with the colour! Planning on getting that next. The Sugar Lip Treatment comes in many different shade so you can check it out.

7. Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Sweet Violet
This is for the indoor when you don’t need any sun protection. Have been using it for a long while and still enjoying it.

These are just some of the items that I am bringing along with me. If you have more tips or item to recommend please feel free to comment down below to let me know! Hope you enjoy reading this! 

Stay Chic!~
Hugs, 
Cassandra
