I am having so much fun preparing for my winter away and I have accomplished so much. I used this time to simplify. I packed only the essentials and uncluttered my space at home. I especially focused on my beauty products drawers, kits, bags and cabinets…yes, all that beauty!
There are some products that I thought I would take the time to write about that were either packed or left behind neatly organized for my return.
Hair products. I spend lots of time on my hair just to put it up in a messy chignon or a top knot but it is worth it. I have fabulously healthy hair and can really pile it on with my up do looks.
Keratin Complex Thermo Shine. It was developed especially for flat irons…and…of course, I packed a flat iron. It smooths, conditions and shines the hair. You can use it on dry or damp hair from root to end. Love it. Packed it!
Keratin Complex Infusion Keratin Replenisher & Intense RX. It’s a two step instant Keratin Repair System. For the first step you distribute the Intense RX on to towel dried hair and distribute it evenly. Then, on top of that Infusion. Do not rinse out. It’s best for styling with a flat iron…then you can really see the shine. Love it. Left it behind for a quick intense “pick my hair up” treatment when I get back.
Touch Back. It’s a temporary hair color marker to cover grays. It’s real hair color in a marker. It dries quickly. It doesn’t flake off or rub off. It stays on until you shampoo it out. It comes with a little comb for ease and precision of application. Love it. Packed it! I never travel without out it in Medium Brown.
Fragrances. Celine Dion Signature Eau de Toilette spray. It recently launched in September of this year. It’s the latest addition to the Celine Dion portfolio of fragrances. The packaging is welcoming with a silhouette of the iconic Celine and the silhouette is also etched into the bottle itself. Top Notes: Mimosa Blossom, Pink Lady Apple, Juicy Guava. Middle Notes: Indian Jasmine, Rose Essence, Magnolia Blossom. Bottom Notes: Sensual Musk, Amberwood, Sandalwood. Love it. Packed it!
Heidi Klum SHINE. Like Celine Signature this is another drugstore brand by Coty recently released. It’s Supermodel and TV star Heidi Klum’s first fragrance in the Coty line. Supermodel and television star Heidi Klum launches her first fragrance in collaboration with Coty, named Shine. Three perfumers from Givaudan worked together to create this fragrance for Heidi. The fragrance opens with notes of mandarin, pink pepper and pear. Its heart contains mimosa absolut, lily of the valley and sunflower. The base is composed of vanilla, tonka beans from Venezuela and Cosmone musk. Haven’t tried it. Know I’ll love it. Left it behind to try when I get back.
Lips. C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries 100% Natural Mint Mentha Lip Tint. The mint infusion helps keep breath fresh. Love it. Packed it. (packed the Ginger Mint, and Plum Mint. Left Violent Mint behind so I’ll have a pretty new color to try when I get back.
Check back in for another post on “Pack it/Keep it behind for later”. I still have 4 days left before the trip!
