The ultimate beauty list for your travel bag.
Whenever I travel to my favourite hotels, I need to have with me specific beauty items. Most times I am desperate for handy sizes but I also need to have with me products that I love for their results. Last but not least, I always hope I will find some time to relax and do beauty rituals that I usually cannot include in my everyday life, due to lack of time.
Below you will find a list of 5 favourite travel beauty items that I always have with me!
1. The destressing weapons
These are among the first things I put into my luggage! Vetiver Elixir Essential Oil is a new launch by Parisian brand Darphin which is famous for its essential oils. It is a unique elixir with a divine calming aroma that provides rich nourishment and glow, while relieving stressful feelings. It also helps to strengthen the skin’s resistance. Exactly what one needs after a long flight. Ideal before hopping in your fluffy hotel bed! Whenever I use it, I love the way my skin feels soothed and appears supple, rested and naturally glowing!
At the same range, there is also the Vetiver Aromatic Care Stress Relief Detox Oil with an even comforting action. It is an oil mask that transforms into a lightweight milk and tackles signs of stress caused by environment, daily pressures and lack of sleep to leave skin with renewed radiance and vitality. Infused with Golden Flower Petals and a cocktail of Vetiver, Geranium, French Lavender and Marjoram essential oils, it helps to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier, comforting and soothing to promote a well-rested appearance.

2. The hair ritual
For me, travelling comes with hectic schedules and often special events or photo shootings. I need my hair to look its best! I absolutely trust Chronologiste collection of hair care products by Kerastase for unrivaled hair restoration and hair regeneration. They offer total hair and scalp renewal featuring the highest concentration of the unique and exceptionally rare nourishing ingredient, abyssine, which trengthens and regenerates the hair fiber while delivering smoothness, shine, and softness. The travel set of the collection is ideal for my trips!

3. But first hydration
No matter which amenities I find in my luxurious bathroom, I need to have the moisturizing product I love after I enjoy a blissful hotel bath! The Oxygen Touch Cream by Dove is a cream I love for its texture, rich and light at the same time and for its amazing results. This luxurious body cream from Dove Derma Spa collection transforms dry skin, leaving it even-looking, luminous and velvety soft with an indulgent, spa-like formula.

4. Hands on!
I would not venture a step outside my house without this amazingly designed beauty gadget! Singular and innovative, its design was conceived as that of a true handbag accessory/ At the heart of the formula of La Crème Main lie two complementary ingredients derived from flowers emblematic of Chanel: May rose wax and iris pallida extract. The floral wax of May rose, extracted from the flower is exclusively grown by Chanel in Grasse. It smooths and softens the skin, forming a protective layer that locks in moisture. Iris pallida extract enriches La Crème Main with its brightening properties.
5. The fragrance
It is in this feminine and independent spirit that Christine Nagel composed Twilly d’Hermès. Ginger, tuberose and sandalwood are reinvented to form an unexpected combination. A hand-tied silk ribbon playfully adorns the bottle as the finishing touch! The perfume came to me with a real silk Twilly scarf, which I love to wear as an accessory!
