This Saturday I’m venturing off on my first holiday of 2018, a short stay in Halkidiki, Greece. Although I’m one of those strange people who quite enjoys packing and is ready to go nearly weeks in advance, I do struggle when it comes to selecting what beauty products to take with me. When I’m at home I like having six different foundations to choose from based on how my skin looks that day… my shower hosts a variety of gels because I like to change it up, but apparently packing a variety of every product for a five-day trip is unnecessary. Can you just picture my eye roll?
When it comes to loading up my suitcase, my struggle with overpacking and a desperate need to save space combined with just how cute I find them means that miniature products are my absolute saviours. Recently, Fair Squared (a brand which is not only Vegan but Fair Trade too) very kindly sent me a few of their products to try. As soon as I unboxed their Intimate Shaving and Amenities sets I knew that they’d be absolutely perfect to take and use on holiday! Both of these would be great for anyone who travels as they provide you with perfectly sized essentials!
Intimate Shaving Set
I’m pretty selective about my beauty products, and even more so when it comes to razors and shaving creams. I have quite sensitive skin, accompanied by the joy of being prone to razor burn and general irritation caused by shaving. As a result, I felt it necessary to try out the Fair Squared products before packing them as my only holiday option.
Unboxing the razor itself left me with mixed feelings: although I was thrilled by the diddy size of it and how convenient it would be to take with me, I was worried that it would be difficult to handle. Honestly, I also slightly feared the quality of the razor, my usual go to is the Venus range which has gel bars.. so I found the Fair Squared razor swap a little daunting. Not only was the razor itself a big change up for me, but I was also curious about how I’d find the shaving oil and gel, as a pose to my usual shaving foam. I’m happy to report that all of my initial worries were an absolute waste of time! I’ve been getting on really well with the oil, gel, and razor. The only slight drawback I’ve found is that the razor doesn’t have any kind of cover to protect against the blade, so when packing it, I haven’t been able just to throw it in my cosmetic bag, its been stored separately for a fear of rummaging around in the bag forgetting that there’s a naked blade!
Another super handy set, I’ve already packed the body lotion, shampoo, and shower gel! I have to say, I find it a little odd that Fair Squared has opted to include a liquid soap rather than a conditioner, and I haven’t packed this with me (I’ll definitely have my trusty hand gel though). This hasn’t put me off the set and I do think that I’ll maybe carry the liquid soap around in my bag on a day to day basis as I think that it may be one of those things which could come in handy at the most unexpected of times!
I’ve absolutely loved my first experience with such a fun and ethical brand, and would definitely recommend checking them out, especially if you’re also off on any travels soon! If you are, then you may want to check out my Travel Beauty Must Haves post too!
