Not to worry, I packed my hammock, a vast supply of Cherry Coke, there's a lifetime's worth of trashy reading on my Kobo and Previously Pale even left me the sunscreen that she doesn't need any more so I'm all set!
Luckily, I had also packed all of the beauty products I can't live without and would want to be stranded on a deserted island with so now all I need to do is find an icemaker and I'm set...
When the others got stranded those wimps took 12 products with them but as I am fortunately already possessing a whole butt-load of natural beauty and don't need as much help I only brought 6 - those being:
La Roche-Posay Hydreane BB Cream in Light - I have really come to love BB creams and this is the one I've been wearing all the time lately because not only does it do the usual colour correcting and moisturizing thing, it also adds a subtle and flattering glow to the skin! It's also a light shade that actually is light so blends in perfectly!
Smashbox Love Me Eyeshadow Palette in Entice Me - it's been a long time since I've bought a new eyeshadow but I loved the colours and finishes in this one so much, that I added it to my collection! What I really like about it is unlike regular palettes where you get 5 shadows all the same size but end up using all of the neutral ones and only some of the brighter/darker colours, this palette sizes everything accordingly and the lighter shades that you are likely to use more of are 3 times the size of the funkier colours!
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart - with the best of both worlds - colour and moisture that really doesn't budge! I especially love this bright pink shade, it really perks up your face and makes it unnecessary to wear a lot of other makeup!
Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes Pink Grapefruit - grapefruit has got to be my fave scent for just about anything and as an added bonus, these cloths do a great job of removing grime and makeup - heavenly!
John Frieda Anytime Volume Refresher - seawater is no good for washing hair in so I'm expecting my fine hair to look like crap but since there aren't any mirrors (or people) I've decided not to care. When it gets to be too much though I'm going to count on my trusty friend - dry shampoo - and this one is especially great because it gets rid of the greasy look and adds volume all in one go!
SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque - 60ml - $50 - helps eliminate excess sebum while gently exfoliating dead skin cells. With natural earth clays with a hydroxy acid blend to unclog pores, lift impurities and oils and exfoliate the skin - making it perfect for congested or oily skin.
Use it once a week to help remove exfoliated skin buildup or twice a week if you tend to have clogged pores - I've been using it twice a week but one of those days only in areas where I have pore issues so chin, nose and forehead - and after sever weeks of use now, I do find my pores look a lot clearer and therefore less noticeable!
