Style : Beauty

When I go away I always try and keep my luggage to a minimum so that I can fit in more shoes, and I find often a travel set is ideal for taking necessary toiletries abroad. Certainly a nice new toiletries bag is essential for every trip. Recently I road tested 2 of such sets both which came with a useful and stylish toiletries bag.

Temple Spa Spa Wherever You Are Set
This set comes in a super smart reusable toiletries bag that would sit nicely in any luxury bathroom. The set offers everything you will need for an indulgent trip including rejuvenating and calming creams, gels and sprays. All smell like a warm forest in the mediterranean with a lovely mix of natural scents. Included in this set are: Toning Essence-Alcohol Free, essential mist toner spray (30ml) with extracts of citrus, tomato, lavender, rose geranium, rosemary, basil and ginger. It smells much like a Temple Spa- very nice. All Talk-Moisturising Lip Balm (4ml) with vitamin E, green tea, soybean and Mediterranean fruity essential oils.
