REN Travel Essentials

Neroli and Grapefruit Body Wash has a very subtle scent. It is quite nice but nothing special about it. It lathers ok, but its just a soap.

Oat and Bay Conditioning Shampoo is one that I have to use a lot to get a lather. Maybe it’s just me who loves bubbles on my hair. But I just have to have it to feel the shampoo doing its thing. So it’s a waste most of the time and this is only 50ml. A week trip is enough though but no more than that.

Pro Vitamin Conditioner is pretty standard. You have to really let it sit for awhile to get the product to work. It is alright, but it won’t be suitable for those who have really coarse tangly hair.

Neroli and Grapefruit Body Cream. Now this is weird. It sinks into your skin really fast. It’s good. Not oily and all that. So you can put on and leave the house without feeling sticky. But it feels like it doesn’t do its job. It’s like disappear into the skin, but my skin still feels rather dry. So I don’t know. On one hand I like it. But I can’t see that it did something.

La Roche-Posay Soothing Repairing Balm

This is so good for after sun care. Not as soothing as I would like but it’s good for something nonsticky. It’s more like body lotion, slightly thicker but can spread easily.

La Roche-Posay Cleansing Body Cream Gel

A soap like any other soap. It’s very hotel kind of soap consistency. It does alright. I like it enough. It lathers well. It just nothing special about it.

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector – 05

I still love the texture of these gloss. It’s so comfortable on the lips. Not sticky and quite pigmented considering they are gloss. But this one the colour is quite light on my pigmented lips. So it doesn’t show as much as when I swatch on the back of my hand. But it’s still really nice and the smell is very lovely. It has a nice vanilla scent, very yummy.

Innisfree Green Tea Line Set

This is such a cute set. Only thing is that the bag is not waterproof. This doesn’t smell like green tea at all. It’s just a nice traveling set that anyone can use.

The shampoo is not so minty, but it works well on most hair type. The conditioner is quite good. A little goes a long way. Body cleanser is average. Cleansing foam, can be better in my opinion. But no complain also. The hand cream is nice. It absorb fast into the skin. Not sticky at all. I like it.

Overall, it’s a nice handy set to have.

Blue Lagoon Iceland Lava Scrub

I got these from my colleague who went to Iceland. This is such a nice fine scrub. It’s very cleansing as in it just gives you a very clean feeling afterwards. It removes all impurities off your face. So it feels really nice. One 7ml, can be used twice. Maybe even three time. But I just use them on my body too. It’s a really unique scrub.

Masterpiece Max Mascara

Yay to mini mascara. For this, I’m not sure if I have it for long so it’s dry, or it’s the dry kind of mascara. But regardless, it still is nice for daily cause it’s not dramatic. But you have to curl your lashes first. It doesn’t clump also, so that’s nice. Really just a fuss free mascara.

Christophe Robin Purifying Shampoo


I do not like the packaging at all. The opening is too big that the product will come out freely.  The shampoo itself is alright. It doesn’t leave my hair oily and I can use this for several days without a problem. So that’s a good shampoo in my book. Only thing I guess my hair will be prone to dropping. So I will still need anti hair-fall shampoo. And of course conditioner. Without conditioner, my hair is quite rough. But it’s still a good shampoo. One that I will consider buying a full size of. Cause I think a purifying shampoo is good for getting rid of all the hair product leaving your hair clean and renewed. 

Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream

The goat milk is the more popular one. I tried and loved the moisturiser for acne/oily skin. I thought I try the main one. Managed to get the 30ml one. Plus it’s slightly cheaper at $46 than the full size 50ml which is $99.

I like it too. But I feel more confident using the other one as I feel that skin doesn’t get as oily fast. This one can last me the whole day, but I never test it out on a really hot day. The weather has been generally cooling with hints of sun. But it has not be crazy hot. So my makeup and skincare have not really melt.

So I think this is actually really nice and gentle for anyone with normal skin. And it’s nice to use in a less humid weather. The price is questionable. But I can use half a pump each time, and this wouldn’t cost as bad as it will be able to last.

Caudalie Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum

This is an ok serum. Supposed to be for anti-wrinkle, but you won’t really see the difference until like years later when you see that you have no wrinkles. The serum is alright as the formulation is not oily. So it’s quite fair on my skin. But I don’t love it, as the scent is not particularly nice. It’s not bad, but Caudalie has one of the best scent in products, this is not on of them. So I don’t like it.
