The only thing harder than packing a wardrobe for a multi- destination holiday is deciding what beauty products to edit down to.
I recently enjoyed one of the best trips of my life. Traveling with my honey, we had a mixture of business and personal agendas that took us to some of the most exciting and glamorous destinations in the world.
From an overnighter in Dubai, a week in sunny Portofino which culminated in a World Premiere Party for the new Ferrari Portofino, a shopping and culture weekend in Florence where I met up with my best friend, four rainy but ultra romantic days in Paris where we ate our way through every hot new restaurant and historic cafe in the city of love, and finishing up in steamy Singapore with two mega concerts (Duran Duran and Chainsmokers), a rooftop party and the Singapore Grand Prix, I had a lot of climates, events and ‘looks’ to cover.
I’m not going to lie, editing down the beauty regime was about 100 times harder for me than selecting outfits, bikinis and shoes to pack…In the end, I opted for multi-tasking, super hydrating and tried and tested formulas that I could rely on in rain, steam or sunshine.
My friends at Clinique sorted me out with a complete arsenal of beauty double timers from the Moisture Surge and Fresh Pressed range. The travel friendly and water-based products from Moisture Surge had my skin in top condition in any situation. The Moisture Surge CC Cream is my new favourite foundation and skin perfector with super high spf and beautiful, natural coverage and blur effect. The skin care standouts for me were the Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief (incredible to revive flight and party weary skin) and the Fresh Pressed cleansing powder was like a berocca for my face every single day. I literally did not stop getting compliments on my skin during and after the trip. Pretty good given the late nights, champagne and all those flights..
Here’s a little pictorial and video snapshot of my trip highlights.. Boyfriend has been edited out of the pics, but he was a very obliging Insta Husband.. capturing all my outfits (28 in total!!) and patiently indulging me as I gave us hotel room facials (hello Moisture Surge Melting Mask Balm) and on flight treatments (Moisture Overnight Mask and Face Spray) as though this was perfectly normal.
