My Travel Essentials List

I have probably never been traveling in a summer that much as this year. Most of my journeys in July and August were for business since I was a trainee in Prague fashion stores. However, I was packing almost every week for a couple of days. Luckily, the best is yet to come and I am going to travel for holiday too. Our destination is Cyprus and I can’t wait to discover lots of beautiful spots on the island. We also plan to shoot a lot of pictures and do videos so as you might expect from a fashionista, I will be fully packed. Some items to pack are of bigger importance than the rest to me. Thanks to my previous business trips I already know which little helpers I cannot travel without. The following useful travel products are all on my travel essentials list.

How I Get Wavy Hair without Heat

Most of my beauty reviews on Chic Cocktail blog are focused on hair care products which actually corresponds to my obsession with hair styles, or more specifically hair color, experiments. I need to admit that I really have gone through a couple of different hair styles in the past years. You can even see the proof in my post ‘My different hairstyles’. Altogether with my main passion, which is fashion obviously, I can see the picture of me quite clearly. Once I’m all dressed up and my hair is fine, I feel good. My makeup is a secondary issue. A healthy diet and calm mind is my best skincare. If my skin in in good condition, I do not burden it with makeup, usually. My mornings are all about my outfit, accessories and the hair! (Well… ok, plus eyebrows and mascara). (more…)

Lavera Organic Skin Care Review

As my diet is green, I also use organic skin care only. At the moment I am testing Lavera Basis Sensitiv anti wrinkle day cream with Q10 coenzyme. In my video Lavera Basis Sensitiv Q10 you can see me unboxing and applying the cream for the first time. Now, two weeks of daily usage, I can share my thoughts about the Lavera Basis Sensistiv Q10 cream. Learn more in my full review below.

Smooth Legs with Sugar Paste

We all want to have smooth legs all the time, especially in summer when we expose them the most. As I mentioned in my Sugar Body Scrub review, I’ve been learning how to do sugaring hair removal. And literally, I’ve tried hard and there must have been over dozen unsuccessful tries. But since I’ve also experienced professional salon sugaring and saw how my sensitive skin was really comfortable with the process plus the long lasting effects, I decided that one day I will learn how to do sugaring technique at home.

Melvita Rose Day Cream

In my recent beauty routine I’ve become pretty much minimalistic treating the skin of both face and my body with the amazing organic cold pressed coconut oil. I love its moisturizing, cleansing and regenerating effects. However, the oil is obviously not an ideal base to start with in the morning before you apply a foundation. Thus I was searching for a natural product with long lasting hydrating effects.

Travalo Perfume Atomizer

I’ve been planning to show you this little helper for some time already because I think there are still ones of you who do not know what a perfume travel atomizer is and how useful job it does. I guess we all have our favorite perfume, or some might have more and like to change them according to the mood. Either ways, to carry a perfume bottle, even the smallest size of 30 ml (1 oz), adds a considerable weight to our handbags. (more…)
