5 Beauty Favourites For A Weekend Break

Indulge Beauty

Last year the lovely team at Indulge Beauty, a new store in London sent some of their favourite products for me to try out. I’ve finally made my way through most of the items and thought it would be fun to share some of my personal favourites.

I was lucky to go on lots of weekend trips throughout 2018. Most of these products were travel or sample sized so they were ideal for my little adventures. There wasn’t anything I disliked in the collection but there were some real stand-out products which I know I’ll be re-purchasing.

Sachajuan Ocean Mist

I fell in love with this Sachajuan hair mist right away. The spray accompanied me on two trips to Lille, a weekend in Cologne, half-term in Cornwall and many weekends in Cambridge.

Despite using the spray liberally and having a lot of hair I still have a little left to use up. It goes a long way and once it’s finished I’ll be buying a full sized bottle.

My favourite way to use Ocean Mist is when my hair is damp. I’ll spray it in and scrunch my hair before leaving it to air dry. If I need to dry my hair quickly I’ll us a hair dryer and scrunch up my hair into little sections to create a natural tousled look

It’s a bit like a salt water spray but also has the ability to act like a non-tacky and sticky hairspray. I find it lifts any natural waves in my hair, adds volume and keeps the style locked in. Perfect for lazy mornings.

Urban Decay All Nighter

Since I’ve got into using a make-up setting spray there’s no going back. All Nighter makes such a positive difference to how my make-up looks throughout the day, especially when the afternoon hits. This spray even works well during the hot summer months.

It’s a very light spray which I like. It doesn’t feel like you’re adding on any extra layers on top of your make-up and certainly isn’t sticky.

I apply this straight after my make-up and keep it in my handbag for an extra spritz to freshen up my look throughout the day.

Clarins Hydra-Essential cream

This is probably one of my all-time favourite face creams. I even dedicated a full post. I go back to this cream year after year and always have a jar ready to go. I believe it used to be part of the Hydra Essential range when I was in college (yes I’ve been using it that long) but they re-named it a few years back.

My skin can get very dry, especially during the colder months. If you have dry and sensitive skin then I highly rate the full Hydra Essential range.

I use this one in the morning and would normally buy the version with SPF in. Despite it being a very hydrating cream it’s not at all heavy or tacky on your skin. It sinks in quickly and leaves your skin feeling lovely and soft.

Beauty Blender

It’s taken me ages but I’m now a Beauty Blender convert. I know, I’m really late to the game with this one.

It’s a soft little sponge that you use to apply your make-up. I’ve mostly used mine to apply foundation. It’s really easy to use and leaves you with a smooth finish.

I’ve been using mine by running the blender under the tap, squeezing away excess water and then bouncing my foundation into my skin.

Perricone MD Hydrating Cloud Cream

This is a really luxurious face cream. It has a lovely creamy and thick consistency but somehow is still lightweight, light as a cloud even. It’s perfect for the colder months too. This tiny little pot went a very long way.

It’s a fully hydrating cream which is fragrance free and perfect for my sensitive and dry skin. I use this in the evening (and the Clarins cream in the mornings) on my travels have been loving how soft, smooth and plump it leaves my skin is.

I’d love to try more from the Perricone MD in the future.
