Love Skincare; Will Travel

It’s that time of the year again when all of us are eagerly counting down the days to the Christmas holiday break. Amidst the excitement, the one thing I find a touch annoying is packing for my holiday; in particular, filling my travel cosmetic bag! In the past, I’ve found it difficult to find miniature versions of my favourite beauty products. But this year, my problem has been solved!

Both Dermalogica and Kosmea have my skin covered this summer holiday season with their limited edition travel sets packed full of value.

Kosmea Summer Essentials

The Kosmea Summer Essentials pack contains compact versions of Kosmea’s best-selling beauty products:

  • Clarifying Facial Wash for cleansing;
  • Radiance 24/7 Youth Boost for illuminating;
  • Replenishing Moisture Cream for protecting;
  • Rose Hip Oil for repairing; and
  • Rosewater Mist for hydrating skin (when travelling or to set your perfectly made-up face).

The clarifying facial wash lasts about five days, but the rest of the products are plentiful and look to serve me well into the New Year. Retailing at $29.95 with over $70 worth of value, this kit is a bargain buy.


Dermalogica Skincare Sets

Dermalogica has brought out a range of skincare sets for varying skin types: prematurely ageing skin, skin prone to excess oil and skin prone to dryness. Each boxed kit contains a pre-cleanser, targeted cleanser and a moisturiser formulated specially for your skin type.

egpr sent me the ‘skin prone to excess oil’ kit to trial, which is perfectly suited to my skin. As I often break out with pimples in the warmer weather, I require a product that strips excess oil production from the outer layer of my skin without drying it out.

To my delight, this pack does just that. I found the formulations easy to apply and non-greasy. My skin is left feeling nourished, oil free and with a shine-free finish. The only downside is it’s a little pricey, retailing between $67.50 and $110.


I personally love both of these skincare packs and they have solved my biggest packing woe!
