LANEIGE Travel Set Review + 15% Promo Code for Luxola.com

Pack smart, travel light.

I always enjoy travelling but the packing, not so much. Packing is usually kept to the last minute and done without much thought. This usually resulted in over packing with little room left for shopping during the trip.

Not the most ideal situation for someone who loves shopping and getting little nick-knacks on a trip. So one day I decided that maybe a little planning would help solve my packing problem. And it certainly did.

Here are ten tips on how not to over pack.

SKIN CARE

When it comes to skin care, I used to throw in entire full size bottles of my facial wash, toner, essence and moisturizer. That was a terrible idea. The sheer weight of those glass bottles made my luggage heavier than it should be.

1. Always keep a skin care travel set at hand. This way, your skin care routine is not compromised and you get to keep the weight and space for your shopping.

One option is the LANEIGE Perfect Renew Travel Set ($65). This set comes with a Multi Cleanser (30ml), a Perfect Renew Skin Refiner_EX (50ml), a Perfect Renew Emulsion_EX (50ml), a Perfect Renew Essence_EX (15ml) and a Perfect Renew Cream_EX (20ml). This anti-aging line which contains ingredients such as Himalaya Snow Water and Ceramaid repair water, is targeted at women from their mid-20s onwards to create clear and younger looking skin that is supple and revitalized.

What I enjoy about this travel set is that it covers the four basic steps of my skin care routine – cleansing, toning, treatment and moisture lock.

The gentle, non-drying foaming cleanser helps keep my skin clear and bright-looking. The skin refiner is a tone that is slightly thicker in consistency than the usual Western toners but it absorbs quickly into my skin to prep it for the next steps. The essence, which is usually the most essential step in my skin care routine, is a concentrate formula that specifically targets signs of ageing. In the final step, the emulsion, while being light in texture, provides my skin with the moisture needed for the day. For night use, I would switch the emulsion with the cream to help restore my skin overnight. The set also comes with a transparent pouch that is water resistant to keep the rest of your luggage dry in case anything spills out.

MAKE-UP

2. Think about the order you apply your makeup. This way you can be sure that you are packing the things you absolutely need.

3. Pull out any samples you have lying around. They do not take up much space in your luggage.

4. Bring multipurpose products. This minimizes the number of items you need to bring. For example, a foundation with SPF or a makeup tool that can be used in different ways.

OUTFITS

5. When planning your outfits, ask yourself the following: Where you are going? What the weather is going to be like? What you will be doing? How long will you be travelling for?

For example, if you are heading for a beach holiday, you might want to pack in cool summer clothes and a light cover up for the evenings as the temperature can drop, especially by the beach. This way you will have sufficient outfits to last you for your trip without over packing.

To make the most out of your clothes, choose bright colors for tops and neutrals for the bottoms for an easy way to mix and match your travel outfits. For beach vacation accommodation ideas in Bali, check out the The Luxe Nomad.

CARRY-ON AND CHECK-IN 

Finally, don’t forget about your hand luggage.

6. Have a spare outfit in your carry-on in case something happens to your check-in luggage. This includes a scarf or jacket should you get cold on the plane or when you land.

7. Carry a backpack to the airport. This keeps your hands free and provides you with room to put your handbag/purse in.

8. Dress comfortably and wear shoes that are easy to slip in and out off to the airport.

9. Avoid wearing any jewellery or a belt. This minimizes your time spent at the security

10. Last but not least, keep some of your favourite snacks at hand. This is especially useful if you are travelling on a budget flight.
