I love the idea of minis, but are they useful? Hardly ever. They're always tiny pots of things that you don't actually want, but you feel compelled to buy because there's always an offer on them at the Boots till, and they do look pretty cute.
The only mini versions that I ever take away are Kerastase - so finding a skincare one is exciting. This Bioderma My Travelling Essentials Gift Set (slash travel set) has four products that I would WANT to take away with me.


Bioderma Atoderm Gentle Shower Gel

This is a mini, but it's big enough to take away, because tiny shower gels are no use to anyone - they just run out on day two after you've cleaned, like, one foot. I love this gel, even though it doesn't smell gorgeous or anything, it's really good for not aggravating my eczema. 

Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micellar Solution

If you haven't jumped onboard the micellar train, then you're missing out. It's a type of cleanser, but more efficient because they have little things called micelles in them, which have tails that pick up all the dirt and grease from your skin, and get rid of it. Use it with a cotton pad and it'll dissolve make-up seriously fast. I use it at night if my skin is feeling irritated, and by morning, it generally looks a lot calmer (unless it's a really bad week!).

Bioderma Nourishing Cream & Moisturising Concentrate

This duo is so perfect post-sun, because they calm and moisturise. The day cream is made for very sensitive skin, and the serum gives you an extra boost of hydration. There's some debate about whether you should use a serum or a moisturiser first, but I always use a serum, so it can sink in before my moisturiser. They're ultra calming, and the perfect size for a few days away. I use a thicker cream at night, because I have such dry skin but if you don't then you could get away with using this  cream morning and night.

Are you travelling anywhere sunny? I'm thinking of booking Santorini!xx
