Botswana prep; planning for a month away from home is hard but planning for a month without shops/ people/ outside world means I’m lugging all my essential with me. Including ALL of the hydrating lotions cause it’s V dry out there and I flake like Austin Powers Goldmember on a good day. My other materialistic must-haves are of course a basket bag, a good pair of hoops, my lucky French fish and my Ethiopian necklace that I always travels ith.
When it comes to skincare I have my favorites, but have been trying a new brand in the last week. Miniso…. A super fun Japanese retailer that makes a rather varied assortment of lifestyle, home, beauty and make up products in China & Korea. My personal favorites have been:
The Horse Oil hand cream – super hydrating, and doesn’t leave your mits greasy at all.
Ginseng Moisture Essence face cream – lightweight mosituriser, I’ve been using it at night after washing my face. The texture has a gentle consistency and works well on dry patches.
