I'm packing for Spain!

I'm so excited about going to Spain... I started packing today (It's just a couple of days away now!).
Of course, I travel with my pink ettusais luggage! Damn cute... and I can spot it as soon as it pops out on the luggage belt.
Note to self: I need to buy a new pair of flip flops!

And my skin care and make up bag. All ettusais products of course! :)

For skin care, I'm only bringing the basics: cleanser, softener moisturiser and eye zone essence... plus my emollient supplizer (which I call my Super Moisutriser!) because my skin will get dehydrated from all beach activities there.
I'm not bringing a lot of make up there just SPF protection (which is in my pre-make up base), lip balm and blusher for day time and eyeshawdow for nights out... but the number one essential item in my make up bag is my Daytime Defense powder extra from ettusais.

The very first ettusais product I purchased was the Day Protect Powder. I've always been buying refills for this marshmellow pink case.
And 5 fluffy years later... it has transformed From That.... to This!A Slimmer, more stylish silver case... even though the new case is much more compact, it holds the same amount of powder (6g).... and best of all, the Daytime Defense Powder is an improved formula which gives better coverage, it's longer lasting (keeps skin hydrated for up to 8 hours) because it contains ettusais' star skincare ingredient- AC control oil.
It's ultra gentle for sensitive skin because it's non-comedogenic and fragrance free. The powder particles are so fine that it gives you a soft, lightweight and fluffy finish. This new formula has the beaming design pearl which helps to reflect light and enhance the beauty of bare skin... so you get a naturally glowy finish.

The Daytime Defense Powder Extra comes in 3 shades - Lucent, Light Beige and Natural Beige. I'm using Natural Beige.

It's the perfect item for me.. as I don't want to look "made-up" .. nothing worse than cakey and uncomfortably thick make up on the beach! Yet it gives me sufficient coverage (reduces appearance of pores and blemishes!) and protection from harmful UV rays (SPF9 with PA++).

For daily protection and nautral coverage, just use it after pre-make up base. But if you want enhanced coverage, use it after liquid foundation.

And if you would like to keep your skin fresh and matt, you can try their new Sheer Matt powder. It's a clear skincare powder that has superb sebum absorption ability so skin does not become sticky and oily.

To get it re-filled, all you need to do is just detach the bottom bit. So easy, hygenic and economical.
Price: S$64 ( refill at $45)
