How to Pack Beauty? – Your Cosmetics’ Bag Travels with You

You may have planned your whole life carefully, but the best things happen spontaneously. For example, a holiday, a short trip of just a few days to a lovely resort, or a weekend getaway to nature. Holidays, wherever adventure winds may take you, require a degree of preparation, quick thinking, and anticipation. We are talking about something you would not do without on many of your trips – your personal cosmetic’s bag, which holds your whole life and much more. When travelling light, you can take only a minimal number of personal belongings, including cosmetics, so trying to pack the entire daily beauty routine into a tiny bag is a real headache.

What Exactly is in Our Cosmetics’ Bags?

We are all aware that everyday cosmetics and hygiene products are most worth buying in large quantities. This, however, means large bottles of products that are difficult to fit onto the bathroom shelf or in drawers. We will not even begin to talk about packing it all for your trip – one large bottle may find its place in your suitcase, but not five or even more products! Such reality shines a different light on a few things.

Firstly, we are used to having products for all occasions. Let's look at any bathroom or any cosmetic's bag. We will see many similar products, which formulas differ in one or two ingredients. Since we do not go too deep into what is written in small print, we often buy products that we don't really need. Still, the different name on the product's packaging indicates that we don't have it our arsenal of beauty yet. As we want to prepare for this war as best as possible, we usually buy everything we lay our eyes on.

Secondly, the world’s famous cosmetic brands thrive on such behaviour. You may have seen several products of the same line in the store more than once. For example, shampoo, conditioner, and hair masks are designed to work together and supposedly bring fabulous results. Producing different product lines is just a cheap marketing and product design trick that forces customers to buy more than they really need. It creates a sense of urgency and foreshadows the best results possible, which do not work great with our logical thinking.

To sum up – we have tones of unnecessary products in our cosmetic’s bags. We probably don’t even need to add that the more products we have, the harder it is to fit them in one cosmetic bag or say goodbye to them for at least a few days that you will spend away from home.

What Our Cosmetic’s Bags Actually Need?

Whether you’re at home or going on holiday, just like with clothes, we have stuff we don’t need at all and miss things that we don’t intentionally have with us at that time. To avoid this, we advise you to make a list of cosmetic and beauty products and consider what you are using. Eliminate whatever just collects dust on the shelf and is over its expiration date. We mostly have but do not use gifted cosmetics and beauty products, especially ones that require a lot of time daily to operate correctly.

During trips, just as after a hard day’s work, no one really wants to spend long hours in front of a mirror, so here wins a quick and convenient beauty and hygiene routine. It usually consists of basic yet essential things – hair, skin, oral care products, for example, shampoo, shower gel, various creams, toothpaste, and brush. We will not include multiple serums, ampoules, masks, or anything like that in this super shortlist because every ordinary person does not use them.

To prepare for all life adventures, just a few simple products are enough. To regain strength and maintain your beauty levels every day, you do not need to carry a few pounds worth of products everywhere you go. When travelling, it is not necessary to fit a lifetime of cosmetic products in one tiny cosmetic’s bag. However, probably every person has tried to do so without even using many things once.

How Can We Change Some Products?

Some things are simply irreplaceable, but you can discover an even better alternative to make your life and daily beauty routine easier by searching more closely. Although this is not yet a popular option, some brands sell their products in different forms. This means that you can buy two or even three different types of the same product in brands’ online stores, for example, liquid shampoo, spray shampoo, and hard shampoo. Even though the first two examples still reach consumers in bottles (glass, plastic, or metal), the third option is usually packaged in paper packaging. The hard shampoo is friendlier for the environment and takes up less space in our bathrooms and cosmetic bags. Moreover, hard shampoo usually lasts for a more extended period than liquid shampoo.

Another thing worth mentioning is products with universal purpose. While men can quite often find one bottle that will contain shampoo or shower gel and hair conditioner, women are often forced by manufacturers to buy a greater number of different products. It hurts our wallets and the environment, and it also requires a lot of space. Universal products like shampoo + conditioner or shower gel + body lotion helps to save space not only daily but also on trips.

How to Fit EVERYTHING?

Once you have decided what to take with you on the trip, it is time to try and fit everything in one tiny little cosmetic’s bag – and this is where the fun begins. Of course, it depends on the size of your cosmetic bag whether you will fit products to be your partners in crime on trips and adventures. At this point, we advise you to choose the optimal size cosmetic bag according to your travel style. You will probably be able to take more cosmetic products when travelling by car. On a plane with only hand luggage, you are guaranteed not to be able to do so; otherwise, you will only be restricting yourself. Don’t be afraid to buy a new cosmetic’s bag of a different size every few years because it is unnecessary to live a life with only one cosmetic bag.

Before buying a new cosmetic’s bag or just packing it for a trip, think about your beauty and hygiene need at that time. If you stay longer in one place, you may choose cosmetic bags with a zipper. On arrival at the place, you can conveniently unpack everything onto the cosmetics’ table. If you choose a more active holiday and spend every night at a different location or perhaps in nature, choose hanging cosmetic bags with clear compartments. You will always see all the necessary products immediately.

It is essential to responsibly plan the sizes of the cosmetics you take on your trip. We will not tell you the news if we mention that the size of one bottle of cosmetics cannot exceed 100 ml when travelling by place. Still, you will need even less product if travelling for just a couple days. No matter how we like it, travelling does not last forever, so it’s important not to overload ourselves with too many things, including cosmetics. It is always possible to buy samples as almost every popular product always offers a smaller, travelling-friendly version. Besides, the hotels themselves offer the most necessary cosmetics, which all guests find in their rooms and often take home with them. So, think about whether something is worth taking if you will be given it for free.

Another great way to save space in your beauty bag is to share hygiene products with your partner, roommate, or travel friend. Men’s shower gel is perfect for women and vice versa, so on the trip, you will need to take not two bottles of a specific product, but only one.

It is also convenient to be prepared in advance – pack your essential cosmetic bag and take it with you everywhere, keeping it in your car. This can often save you from the inconvenience of suddenly staying overnight with friends or going on a spontaneous holiday.

However, often you start planning your essential cosmetic bag, you may not even know where to start. We have thought of you and created products that help ensure order in your cosmetic bag and your daily routine. Recently we started selling three different bundles so that everyone can find the most suitable option for themselves. Very soon, this fun trio will grow as we are planning to release one more bundle. Let’s start by learning what we can offer you at this point.

The first bundle is for those just beginning their journey through this adventure-filled world of cannabinoids – it’s Beginner Bundle! We had put three excellent products in one convenient cosmetic bag – CBD Blueberry Gummies Full Spectrum, CBD Premium Skin Cream, and CBD Oil Drops Raw (5%)! Combining these products will help a person who doesn’t know anything about CBD to discover balance and harmony in three areas at once – mind, soul, and body, so why not try it today?

The second bundle is for those who are also seeking the full benefits of using cannabinoid products – it’s Wellness Bundle! In a comfortable and eco-friendly cosmetic bag, we put MULTI-Cannabinoids Paste, CBD Cooling Gel, and CBG Oil Drops Raw (10%)! This combination will help you always feel energetic and not lacking good emotions!

The third but certainly not the last bundle is for those already convinced of CBD benefits and want to try it for themselves – it’s CBD Trio Bundle! It is a set of our very first products, in which everyone will discover the most suitable concentration of CBD for themselves and their families. In a convenient cosmetic bag, you will find 5%, 10%, and 21% CBD Oil Drops Raw, which has now long been everyone’s favourite! Those who have not yet experienced this joy will be able to gradually discover the benefits of cannabinoids.

What will you put in your cosmetic bag?

Too long, didn’t read? Your cosmetic bag holds a lifetime and more, but what happens when you must go on a trip? Before packing items and especially cosmetics, think about what products you will absolutely need. Maybe you can do a few days without a body scrub or hair mask? We advise you to choose products as versatile as possible and packed in small packaging; take samples of your already loved products with you! For unexpected trips, always have prepared a cosmetic bag with your essentials.

Time to Chill! – How to Balance Work and Summer Vacation?

Wait—what? Has August already started? Stop the time, someone, please! As we are counting the last days of this hellishly hot summer, we better spend the time productively to have something to talk about with our colleagues in the fall. While for some people, the last sentence summarized their entire lives, thousands if not millions still struggle to maintain a healthy balance of work and leisure. During the worldwide pandemic and many nationwide quarantines, our lifestyles got mixed up as we had both to work and spend our free time in the same place. The line separating two different activities was erased, and now it is the perfect time to put it back where it belongs. 

Today we will talk about balancing two things that don’t have much in common – work and vacation! How to balance two different worlds and finally find yourself a harmony? How to get the best of both in completely unlike situations? Let’s look for the key to the healthiest treasure of this century together, shall we?

Spicing Up Your Regular ‘9 to 5’

Pushing all quarantine worries aside, thousands of people in each country and city work in offices. There are two types of offices found everywhere you desire to look – old ones and new ones in today's world. We gave the name of old ones to those office buildings that lack natural light, have all their space divided into closed cabinets, and has a small kitchen as the only lounge area. On the other hand, new office buildings are the complete opposite – with lots of natural light, open layout, and lounge areas for people working there left, right, and centre. Despite noticeable logistical differences, office workers usually work 8 hours a day, five days a week, and has around 20 workdays off for holidays.

The real question is – how people are willing to spend their one month off from monotonous office work? In recent years, it became increasingly popular to have adventurous and active holidays to have an entirely opposite experience than sitting all day and doing nothing. Cycling with a group of friends, kayaking, or driving around Europe in your own car to visit the most beautiful places of the old continent… 

Active holidays are often more fun and much healthier for our bodies than all included seaside resorts with sky blue infinity pools and buffets filled with junk food. Passive holiday whereas more comfortable and less challenging is simply a continuation of the average office lifestyle, not an opportunity to escape the routine. Besides, passive holidays are more expensive than active holidays as the latter can be booked at the very last minute and does not require much preparation. Therefore, we strongly advise everyone wishing to have quality time and escape from work to choose active holidays in nature.

Being Your Own Boss – Kind of…

The pandemic forced many people to physically leave their jobs and work from home. Still, the unexpected changes were not unpleasant for some people. Working remote was a daily routine for thousands of people before the pandemic even began. People who freelance or just work remotely do not experience what it means to spend at least three days a year sitting in traffic jams, making them less nervous and calmer. All their commute to work consists of sitting comfortably at their desk and turning on their personal computer.

Still, even those who work from home or remote also deserve a holiday. Planning their vacation is much easier for them than for people working in the office. Many freelancers do not choose to reside in the city where their actual workplace is located and not even in the same country. Freelancers can afford to travel around the world if they are confident that their destination and vacation plans will not interfere with the quality of their work. While working on an exotic island in the middle of an ocean cannot be called a holiday, remote work is far healthier and more beneficial to our bodies than sitting in the same office cubicle for eleven months. 

If you’re determined to change your life, become a freelancer, or work from home this summer, remember that you’re still working, so you should maintain a regular work routine. Maintaining a balance of resting and working is crucial for your health and the quality of work you do. You will achieve the best results only after a great rest, no matter which corner of the world you decide to rest in. If you have any trouble finding your inner harmony, try our best-selling CBG Oil Drops Raw!

Work Plus Vacation – Mission Possible

The pandemic proved that working from home is far more productive than working from the office; this is confirmed by various studies and statistical surveys. Holidays have also been shown to significantly contribute to employee productivity, and the quality of their work as people return to work rested and with loads of new ideas. Still, companies sometimes cannot do without people in certain positions and are very reluctant to allow them on vacation or to work remotely. As this is becoming an increasingly common problem, we were all recently offered a solution – workation!

As the name suggests, here work is combined with vacation. Imagine going to a resort for a whole month or more instead of a week or only ten days! In the first part of the day, you work remotely, while the second part of the day is meant for your relaxation. However, such a combination requires a popular holiday destination and a comfortable place to work in the hotel where you have decided to stay. Seeing that this way of travelling and working is only gaining popularity every year, many of the best resorts and accommodations are already setting up unique workplaces, open-plan offices, or private office cubicles and renting them out to working travellers. Workation is not only a great way to maintain productivity, but also to relax, and even better, the fact that companies view this combination quite favourably and often contribute financially to such trips of their employees.

Have a great holiday!

Too long, didn’t read? Summer is the best time to have holidays and finally escape from tiring work. However, all people usually have different conditions when planning a holiday. Still, those who seek always find a way to combine work and vacation. No matter your work position, we advise you to prioritise active holidays before passive leisure. It is better for your health and sometimes your wallet to switch from a monotonous work routine to adventures at least once a year!

Cheers to Life! – Pop a Drop of Health in Your Drink

Neither hot summer weather nor holiday vibes promise to escape our lives soon, and nothing is more compatible with these two things than cold and refreshing drinks. In the last blog post, we talked about water and its benefits for our bodies. We also mentioned that drinking many fluids in such hot weather is just mandatory, but sometimes it can be hard to force yourself to do so. We probably won’t find a person who would be happy to constantly carry a heavy water bottle with them, let alone worry about where to fill with it drinking water. Another summer problem is that our body is suppressed, exhausted, and too tired to function after all that holiday fun. The solution to this problem is quite clear – western medicine, vitamins, and minerals, but it is not difficult to get lost in their abundance and find what you need.

Today we offer you an excellent solution, which you can use to solve two problems at once – it’s refreshing drinks with CBD! CBD is a real salvation for those who want to enrich their bodies with necessary elements in a simple way, to enjoy floods of energy and achieve it all only in natural ways. CBD helps to calm down, ensure better sleep quality, and have a more robust immune system. However, CBD Oil Drops themselves are not that delicious. We always advise mixing CBD Oil with breakfast porridge, smoothies, or other cocktails for people with more sensitive taste buds. There is a way you can enjoy not only exclusive flavours but also CBD benefits!

Get ready to make notes on the magic ingredients. After reading this blog, you will immediately want to go to the store and buy what you need to make three amazingly delicious and refreshing drinks with CBD!

CBD Matcha Latte

Although it is summer outside the window, latte coffee is one of our team’s favourite drinks in both the warm and cold season – you can see that even on our social media platforms! Matcha and CBD are a match made in heaven as both are perfect for achieving calmness before the day’s work. Matcha was drunk by Zen Buddhist monks for meditational purposes way before it became famous worldwide. Although Matcha latte can be found in almost every modern café, let’s enjoy this drink-making process and enrich it with CBD Oil Drops.

What are you going to need? Matcha powder, maple syrup or natural honey, unsalted oat milk, CBD Oil Drops.

How to make it? Mix Matcha powder and maple syrup with hot water, shake everything until you see that Matcha powder is dissolved. Separately heat unsalted oat milk and use a frothing stick to achieve nice milk foam. Pour the milk foam into a cup with Matcha, add a few drops of CBD Oil, use additional sweeteners if necessary. During summer, you can add a few ice cubes of water or oat milk to your drink to achieve a nice refreshing feeling. 

CBD Gin & Tonic

Summer is the perfect time not only for adventurous vacation but also for relaxation. We can count hundreds or even thousands of ways to achieve and maintain a state of peace on our own. However, those thirsty for a holiday and have just finished another tragic day at work like to relax drinking cocktails. One cocktail does not hurt, but one too many may not even get you to work tomorrow. We advise everyone to enjoy alcoholic beverages responsibly and limit the amount of alcohol they consume per week. Better yet, give it up and fill the gap with healthier alternatives. However, we do not deny that health and cocktails are incompatible – you just need to be able to combine them together!

What are you going to need? 50 ml of gin, 100 ml of tonic water, a bit of lemon juice, CBD Oil Drops, a rind of lemon or lime.

How to make it? Add ice cubes in a tall glass, mix the gin, lemon juice, and tonic water. Garnish the top of the glass with lemon rind and add few drops of CBD on the top.

CBD Tropical Smoothie

Summer is the best time to enjoy fresh fruits and berries, which are a natural source not only of sugar but also a bunch of vitamins and antioxidants. No matter what berries and fruits we put in a summer cocktail, a great and refreshing drink will come out, which you will repeatedly want all year round. Add a drop of CBD Oil to the fruit and berry bomb, and we guarantee you a heavenly taste and an incredible health combination!

What are you going to need? (2 servings) A handful of greens (kale, spinach, etc.), a cup of non-dairy milk, one medium-size banana, a cup of frozen mango, a cup of frozen pineapple, a cup of frozen mixed berries; ingredients can be room temperature, yet frozen fruits and berries guarantee refreshing cocktail), CBD Oil Drops.

How to make it? Mix the milk and greens together using a food processor; gradually increase the food processor’s speed and mix it for about one minute or until the greens have liquified. Add the banana, a few drops of CBD Oil, and continue mixing. Add the remaining frozen fruit and berries until the drink thickens.

It’s time to celebrate summer and life – cheers!

Too long, didn’t read? There’s nothing more exciting after a hot and tiresome day at work than to come home and take a sip of a healthy and refreshing cocktail. We present you with three recipes for incredible summer drinks with CBD! One to relax your mind and body, one to immerse yourself in tropical vibes, and one to really take that stress off of your shoulders - wait no more!
