  • 'Desert island' beauty items

    Say you are going on a trip or somewhere where you can only bring limited stuff.

    After packing your favourite body gel and shampoo, you are only allowed to bring along 3 more skincare/bodycare + 3 more makeup.

    What would you bring?
    (also name the body gel and shampoo that you are bringing)

    Decisions based on going to a relatively cold climate area

    body moisturizer (nivea, very thick and gd for v.dry skin)
    facial wash (fancl)
    fancl moisturizer or retin A ( keeps occasional pimples at bay)

    the last time i went to the US in spring, i had NO idea that the weather would be drying on my skin at all, and i had stupid flaky bits on my legs, which eventually became itchy because it was too dry! had to apply moisturizer 3 times a day. argh.

    cosmetics:
    concealer (ettusais or chanel)
    lipbalm with colour (lipice)
    eyebrow kit

    i realized another thing though, because of the cold weather, my cheeks were naturally flushed, making it the most natural blush ever!

                  if you want to bring hair conditioner, that's included in your skincare. :p

                  appleger, cheat!

                  i might as well say i bring a UD face case or do a DIY one! everything's inside!

                  this is not a question of how to pack many things into a bag, but how minimalist we can be...
