I brought these full-sized items with me during my recent trip to Malaysia and Thailand
I’m a sucker for travel-sized products. Major sucker. I wrote about awesome travel minis a while back and many of you love mini, travel-sized products too despite them being more expensive per ml compared to buying the full-sized version. The same product in miniature packaging? Sold! That sneaky product placement of travel minis when queueing up at Sephora or Mecca? How can I resist popping them into my shopping basket? 😛
Sometimes when I don’t have the travel-sized version of my favourite product, I’d decant them into small travel-sized tubes, bottles and jars that are aplenty at pharmacies, DAISO and Muji. I’ve stopped using most of the sample sachets that come free with products I buy or stuck to a magazine. Unless I’ve used the product before, they’re not going on my face, not when I’m traveling. My skin can be a real bitch when I’m traveling and out of nowhere, it would either break out in pimples, come down with very dry and peely skin or worse, both. I’ve certainly learned my lesson that when it comes to traveling and my skin, I really need to stick to what I was using prior to traveling and absolutely nothing new. Even if I have to decant the products into jars and bottles and tubes.
