What's In My Travel Washbag

What's In My Washbag - Miel and Mint blog
Only 5 days to go and we will be beach bummin' in gorgeous Gran Canaria. Ahhh! With that in mind, I started making a packing list and also checking the contents of my travel washbag not to forget something I will not be able to buy on a holiday. Right off the bat, I would like to say: don't panic if you do forget an item you absolutely "can't-do-without". You're on holiday after all, enjoy yourself ;) 
Let's have a look inside my travel washbag.

What's In My Washbag
Let me introduce you to my favourite washbag I've ever owned. Therefore, this one survived multiple travel adventures and handling my bathroom and beauty essentials for years. I love this washbag and its design is gorg. It's got very spacious main compartment and a little mirror tucked inside. It's also handy to have a front pocket to pack those smaller items. I pack mine FULL, surprise surprise.

1. Shampoo [Dove Hair Therapy Colour Radiance Shampoo]: I have probably tried at least 20 different shampoo brands, cheaper and expensive ones, but at the moment this little guy won its deserved spot in my shower. 
2. Shower gel [Nivea Happy Time Shower Gel]: first time I used it was back in 2008 and I kept coming back to this lovely shower gel. It smells absolutely incredible!
3. Dry Shampoo [Batiste Dry Shampoo Cherry]: thank you for saving my hair last-minute when there's no time to wash it. This one smells lovely as well. I am probably the last girl on the planet to discover the awesomeness that is Batiste.
4. Thickening Spray [Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day]: it makes my hair go oomph! Big time! Superstar Queen way lol.
5. Detangling spray [Schwarzkopf Gliss Liquid Express Conditioner - similar to mine]: can't go anywhere without it. Even though my hair is fine (thank you, genetics), it tangles badly. Right after I wash, I must spray this all over those locks. No more hair pulling/breakage - check and check.
6. Toothpaste and toothbrush [Colgate MaxFresh]: do you have a favourite toothpaste or is it just me? :) If I forget it at home, I can no problem buy one on holiday but I have to have my buzzing toothbrush with me! :)
7. Liquid facial soap [Clinique]: I have a travel size of this one and it's so handy. I love the rich formula of it and it removes the remains of makeup perfectly, let alone it suits all skin types. Win-win situation.
8. Eye cream [Clinique All About Eyes Rich]: goodbye, dark circles and puffiness. This eye cream is ahh-mazing!
9. Day dream [L'Oreal Triple Active Day] and Night cream [Clarins Multi Active Night Youth Recovery Cream]: these two are fantastic!. I've been using L'Oreal day cream for over 2 months and I have just started using Clarins a few weeks ago. Clarins is #perfection.
10. Hand cream [Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream]: new discovery of mine. Marshmallow-scented and quickly-absorbed - sold!
11. Deodorant [Garnier InvisiDry Roll On Deodorant]: never ever forgetting to use this roll on. It is always with me. Literally.
12. Body cream/lotion [VS Love Spell Ultra-moisturizing Hand and Body Cream]: can't rave enough how much I love it! It smells gorgeous and keeps skin feeling fresh, hydrated and soft. Plus, that name... ;)
13. Razors and wipes [Venus Disposable Razor & Tesco Baby Wipes]: thought these two could go together :) I love to bring disposable razors on a holiday because... I can dispose of them easily, ta-da! Same goes for these wipes (technically, baby wipes - why not): very much needed item, for example, for those sudden makeup spillage situations. Ugh!

My to-buy list so far... 
Do you have any suggestions as to what else I should get? ;) 
What is a must-have in your travel washbag?

    1. Thanks so much, Lucy.
      Great piece of advice, btw!
      I have a little bit of colour but only on my arms, face & neck (obviously, being most exposed to the sun parts of the body). Good idea! ;)

  14. Such a good list! I think getting a good bag is the first important step. My husband and I are going to the Lake in two weeks and I need to get a good bag like this before I go. Thanks for the inspiration!

  21. Great travel bag must haves! You should try purchasing the empty 1/2 ounce containers for your bigger items. Great for flying because its under the limits and light weight!
