Weekend Essentials

So nearly two weeks ago (time seriously flies) the Boyfriend and myself spent a lovely, hectic weekend in London, of course for a makeup obsessive I didn't travel that light (Is bringing 6 lip products a little excessive for two nights away? no I didn't think so either ha). Swapping and changing, these 5 pamper must haves made the cut, as I squashed them into my already bulging suitcase, oops. So here it is, my weekend essentials. 

BB Sunday Shampoo- When I originally purchased this Shampoo, I may or may not have overused it due to its amazing cleaning effects, which sadly led to my hair getting lighter in colour due to its stripping ingredients. Since this incident I only use it on a Weekend to leave my hair feeling squeaky clean, so a perfect tool for a weekend running around the capital. 

Caudalie Beauty Elixir- I will quite happily admit that I excessively use this product, I use it after cleansing both morning and night, throughout the day, aswell as when I feel my skin is in need of a little tender loving care. I absolutely love the smell, its like a Spa in a bottle, and it refreshes my skin. Whether it actually does that much im not to sure, but it well and truly has a home in my makeup bag!! 

Lush Ponche Shower Gel- After a somewhat in-depth conversation with the sales assistant at Lush about all things spice scented, she very kindly sent me away with a near full try me bottle of Ponche (I can never get over how friendly and fabulous the sales assistants at Lush are). Since then this has been my go to shower gel of a morning, It really is like a party in the Shower. I wont even attempt to describe this as im awful at identifying and describing scents, but with a shot of tequila and with influence from Traditional Mexican Christmas Punch, Ponche is a perfect wake me up of a morning. 

Benefit Boo Boo Zap- When I originally purchased this spot treatment I was slightly unsure on how to dispense the product, after getting over that little stepping stone I have found this to be a brilliant spot remover, so it is understandable why it is a necessity for a weekend away!! 

Benefit Foamingly Clean Cleanser- Long gone are the days where I may or may not have used just wipes to clean my face (naughty I know). This Benefit product is a perfect sized Cleanser for a weekend away!! 
So there you have it, my weekend essentials! What are your must haves for a weekend away?
