It’s always a little struggle to pack make up for weekends away. Without fail I select too much and end up with limited space in my travelling make up bag and have to do a quick cull at usually the most inopportune time. So for me rather than perhaps take more time selecting my items – I do need 5 different red lipsticks! – I’d rather just find a bag that fits everything nicely.
The same goes for my skincare. Plain and simply, I hate being without my bathroom cabinet. I choose skincare according to how I feel and what my skin needs daily and since I have no crystal ball, it’s hard to predict what I’ll need on any given night away.
But, I think I may have found the perfect ‘fits everything’ bag in Dolores (£19.50) from MyShowcase. It has masses of space for any number of products – be it skincare, toiletries or make up. On testing, I can fit a streamlined skincare kit – make up remover balm, face wash, exfoliator, hydrator, serum, moisturiser, face oil, cotton pads and flannel. So not bad for size at all.
However you decide to use it, one of the biggest draws is that it has a wipe clean surface. Make up and oil stains can easily be wiped off keeping its chic design in pristine condition for longer. If you get it as a Christmas pressie, I see it being the gift that keeps on giving as it’ll always be in use. Bear in mind, it’s a limited edition so it won’t be around for long!
