What's in my Travel Beauty Pouch?
早安☀️!! Practicing my rusty Chinese to go back and speak to family. I actually find myself struggling to find the right word in Chinese these days when I FT the parents. Kenot liddis. I need to buck up HAHAHAH
Whilst packing up the place, I thought I'd do a What's In My Travel Beauty Pouch post. Basically stuff I carry onto the plane and use on a looooooong flight. I mean, why waste all those hours!!!
When I did my first solo flight up to the Boston, I really didn't know how long it was gonna take. I mean, I KNOW how long it'd take (28 hours to be exact) but I wasn't prepared for it.
By the time I got off the plane, my skin was so dry and dehydrated, it was rough to the touch and peeling just cause I didn't take care of it on the plane.
So I've spent some time collecting sample sizes and decanting products to piece together my multi-step routine for a long plane ride!
I've searched high and low for a suitable pouch and I'm damn anal so it took me damn long.
I finally found this cute little pug one from Forever 21! I needed it to be (kinda) transparent cause Idw the TSA to give me a hard time. The plus point is that it is DAMN BIG. It's so big that I actually have another pouch filled with liquids in there HAHAHA
Ta-dah! Okay, this little one is from Daiso and it is damn good for putting my liquids cause it is transparent.
When it comes to TSA checks, I just need to put the big pouch in the tray and they don't pick on me. I really don't like ziplock bags, can u tell.
If there are more ngiao officers, then I remove this little bag of liquids just to show them and so far, so good?
Liquids which are mainly face stuff! I hoard deluxe samples for a reason. This reason entirely. HAHA
Also, there's so many hours on the plane, I can spare 1 to do my face right. Plus the air is so gross and dry - must make sure to pamper lmao.
1. Make-up remover: Bioderma Micellar Water
I wear sunscreen on board so I gotta make sure I remove it properly too. Plus I have given up makeup wipes already so this is perfect in size for me.
2. Cleanser: LRP Effaclar Foaming Gel
I like this cleanser cause it works pretty well for me so this travel size is just 👌🏼!
3. First Essence: SKII FTE
I transferred a sample I received into this spray mist bottle. I wanna get more of these sia cause it's so useful! No spilling or anything??
4. Hydrating Toner: Laneige White Plus Renew Skin Refiner
I love how hydrating the Laneige Skin Refiners so their sample sizes are damn awesome. I love that u can even purchase them cause they are so useful!!
5. Serum: Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence EX
This comes in the CUTEST dropped bottle ever so it makes it really perfect for plane rides. Can just drop it on ur cheeks and pat in!
6. Serum: Skininc Hyaluronic Acid Serum
My SIL gave me some of their samples so I packed one into the travel pouch for extra hydration. Plane air really dries and freak my skin out.
7. Moisturizer: AP Essential Creme Fluid/Fresh Deep Hydration Face Cream/Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules
LMAO IS THIS TOO MUCH HAHAHAH I just alternate around the AP and Fresh one. The EA Capsules are to seal everything in and it works like a charm everytime to keep my skin soft.
8. Eye: Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel
These are hydrating but does nth for my fine lines. But they are still decent so I now keep them in my travel pouch.
9. I haven't decided which sheet mask I'm bringing on board so I didn't take pics of it but after my serum, I would break out a sheet mask. I travel with the husband so I don't care much about getting judged 😂 I mean, I won't ever see these people again (hopefully) so it's fine lah. My skin is more important HAHAHA #priorities
10. Protection: Dr Jart+ UV Sun Fluid SPF 30
Wear sunscreen on the plane cause u are exposed to higher amount of UV. I would go SPF 50 but I haven't found a small one!
11. Mouthwash (I koped this from a hotel HAHAHAH)
12. Crabtree & Evelyn hand lotion
13. Loccitane perfume balm - this is 100% a necessity on flights that are >8 hours long HAHA
14. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
15. Coconut Oil
And this is EVERYTHING included in the big pouch. I separated the dry from the wet stuff cause I'm anal like that and I like to compartmentalize all my stuff. It makes finding things a lot easier esp. since I'm super blind and plane rides are almost always dark lol
I carry a bunch of tissue, wet wipes and sanitizer cause I'm #aunty by nature. I mean, u really never know when u need all these. SG airport toilets are so fancy and pretty AND CLEAN that I always get a shock when I use the US airports one. They are (generally) clean too lah but nth beats SG one.
Also have hair brush, eyebrow pencil, female sanitary stuff and toothbrushes! I'm the safekeeper of our toothbrushes 🙆🏻😂 and it's also cause I like brushing my teeth HAHA
And with everything packed in. I have secret doreamon-packing abilities that have proven helpful when I need to put a lot of things into a small space. Maybe I'm an untapped secretly-powerful Tetris master or smth.
