They say that “good things come in small packages” and I think I have to agree. I love mini beauty products, they are so cute. Especially the ones that come in little pots. Mini products are so handy to carry around in your pocket (it can’t be just me who carries at least two variteies of lipbalm everywhere) or in your bag. Perfect for testing out new skincare samples or taking on holiday.
The Tan Luxe Rejuvenating Self-Tan Drops are the definition of versatile, portable beauty. These lightweight drops can be added to any face cream, serum, oil or moisturiser to give you a little more colour and a healthy glow. They slot into your routine so easily, there is no extra steps! Just remember to wash your hands afterwards. I have the large size too but at £35 for a full bottle, they are pretty pricey. As you only need a couple of drops per application, the mini is perfect for trying it out!
As a girl with almost waist-length, completely straight hair, I long for beachy, tousled waves. My hair will never fall that way naturally, so recreating the look with the Aveda Texture Tonic is a pretty close second. I apply it onto damp or dry hair, plait my hair and leave for a few hours. Its the easiest, heat-free way to add texture and grip to my hair. The mini sample sizes are perfect for holidays and beach trips in summer.
Straight from the Estee Lauder Pink Ribbon Box last year, I certainly have squeezed as many applications as I can from the Rose Clay Retexturising Face Mask. In a pretty pink shade, this mini mask has seen my skin through many bad skin days. I completely agree with the ‘retexturizing’ name; it is like exfoliating your face as well as getting the clay mask benefits. Will definietely be purchasing the full size.
Lipsticks are small anyway, which is why the mini Stilla Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick pleases me so much. It is so cute! The colour is ‘Perla’ – a beautiful mauve-pink colour that I use on a weekly basis. My favourite way to wear it is with a fuller coverage base and lashings of mascara. It doesn’t budge either! Ideal to pop into my bag and carry around throughout the day.
