The Minimal Overnight Bag

by Joyce in


I'm a girl that does not like to leave products behind, so when I packed a bag this past week to stay over at my parents' house, it was quite a feat to arrive there with a bare minimum of beauty products in my bag.

Normally, I don't really care about what shampoo I use, but lately I've been addicted to Phyto's Phytoneutre Clarifying Detox Shampoo. I didn't use it for a month, and I noticed a difference in how my scalp felt and as soon as I started using it again, I was happy. I love how this minty fresh shampoo seems to keep my scalp balanced!

In the event that I wore some makeup (I often keep a little in my purse just in case), I had to bring along my Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water (review). I always use it to remove makeup, but even occasionally use it when I am too lazy to wash my face properly with Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (review). Love that stuff. 

In terms of moisturizing, I love African Botanics Neroli Marula Oil (review) and Lush Celestial (review) - it is the perfect combination right now, though each by itself seems to work for my skin in this hot weather too. And last but not least, I brought my wooden comb that I always use when I manage to properly brush my hair.

What are your overnight bag bare essentials? I'd love to know!
