[First Aid Beauty Travel Kit]

So, I bought this for 3 reasons:

1) I was travelling for a month and needed decently sized skincare to travel with
2) Sephora was having a 20% off sale for some of its members
3) Look at it...Just look...

Let's dive straight in with a yea or nay: YEA!

But, there is a caveat: I have no idea how this would function in humid weather...well, the moisturiser at least. Overall, however, it's a seriously good set of stuff. I love! 

Let's look at it in more depth:


[First Aid Beauty's Cleanser] 


[First Aid Beauty's Cleanser]

I really like this cleanser. It comes out of the tube in a slightly pearlescent liquid and it foams up quite nicely on your face. It definitely leaves you feeling clean without that horrible tight feeling you get from many cleansers. 


[First Aid Beauty's Facial Radiance Pads]

The first thing you will notice every single time you screw open the top on the container is the smell. Oh my God the smell! Not in a good way either. It smells like full on ammonia. Seriously. If it weren't for the fact that it wasn't filled with a yellow liquid, I'd assume someone peed into the container. But get through it because it's so worth it!

These are essentially a cotton pad pre-soaked in toning liquid, but it has grooves so it acts as a mild exfoliant as well. I really do love these. They work fantastically and I REALLY wish they would do something about the smell because I'd be more than happy to repurchase these.


[First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream]

Now, this was absolutely perfect for London because it's quite a thick cream moisturiser:

You literally only need that much of it to sort your whole face and neck out because it spreads quite well and sinks into your skin nicely, especially after the mild exfoliation the radiance pads provide. So, having combination/oily skin, I'm not too sure about it in this weather. It might do well as a night moisturiser though. I like how it feels, but I don't want to be running around reflecting the sun back at itself during the day. 

But, because I'm not someone who reads instructions in their entirety, I completely missed the label on the front which mentioned "For the face and body". I shouldn't have carried body lotion with me to London! Read Arpita, read! This would definitely do well as a good body lotion and now I feel like I have a new product. I just noticed the label today when I took the picture of the moisturiser. *Sigh*

I'll update with its effectiveness for that purpose.

Overall, definitely a set worth trying out. It's extremely multifunctional in that you get 5 products instead of 3: Cleanser, toner, exfoliator, moisturiser, body lotion. And in general they feel really nice on the skin, so I'm quite happy.
