Little travelling essentials

Every day I commute from Birmingham to London for work.

Travelling can take a lot out of you and it can also do the same to your skin.

In order to keep myself looking and feeling bright, I like to use these 5 quick-fixes.

1. Optrex Actimist 2in1 Tired + Uncomfortable Eye Spray – £15.99

I wear contact lenses which means that as the day goes on, my eyes can feel really dry and heavy. Recently I’ve taken to keeping this little spray in my bag and have found that it really helps to soothe my eyes. You can use it over make-up with no problems, and it’s safe for lens wearers. A handbag essential!

2. Chanel Illuminating Powder with Shimmer – £46.00

With a long day ahead of you, you’ll have to ensure that you seal in your foundation with a good powder. I love this Chanel illuminator because it keeps my face in place and adds a little bit of glow. Dust some extra on further into the day to perk you up.

3. Benefit Dr. Feelgood Balm – £21.50

If you’re dashing about then you may need to think about your t-zone. This mattifying complexion balm from Benefit is great because you can dab some on over your make-up to eliminate any shine.

4. Rituals Cooling Foot Balm – £9.90

After long journeys, your feet might need some extra attention. I love this balm for soothing my feet after a long day. It smells minty which means that my feet feel fresh, and is great for softening hard skin.

5. Illamasqua Concealer – £13.00

Illamasqua are a great brand for finding your true colour match. They have so many shades of foundation and concealer, meaning that you’ll be spoilt for choice and able to find just the colour for you. Their concealer is quite creamy, making it easy to blend.

Two more essentials for commuters that are both free? Plenty of sleep and water.
