Well there are a few - actually several things that are my favorites for my kit. I thought it would be fun to share with you what my "kit essentials" are and why I think they are the cats meow. The top 5 reasons I fall in love with an item for my kit are the following qualities
effectively does what it says it can do
able to be packaged in a compact way
can work for multi purposes
is something that can be used in remote locations with out electricity or water
works on a variety of skin conditions, tone and colors
When doing a makeup application I always start with proper prepping of the face. So, I might as well start my first "Kit Essential" blog with the first item I begin with when prepping the skin, Bioderma Sensibio H2O.
First, Bioderma micelle water comes in 3 types and 3 sizes.
Sensibio H2O - for sensitive skin
Sebium H2O - for oily skin
Hydrabio H2O - for dry skin
sizes 100ml, 250ml, 500ml
I buy the largest bottle for the best value. The 500ml is $16.90. I then fill a small clear spray bottle for my kit and refill as needed. Be sure to label your bottles so you aren't accidentally picking up something else like alcohol and putting it on the face. That would be very bad!
I do have all 3 of the Sensibio products but as my Kit Essential I always have the Bioderma Sensibio because it is more universal for all skin types. What I love about this product is that I can package it in a small spray bottle for compact packing. I love that it works on all skin types. And I love that it not only cleanses the skin removing dirt and all makeup including mascara but it is safe enough for the most sensitive skin types and will actually sooth irritated skin. Another big bonus is that it requires no water to rinse it off. You simply soak a cotton round and wipe the face clean. Bioderma's fatty acid esters are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes and naturally help rebuild the skin's hydrolipidic film. With all these benefits of the Bioderma Sensibio it meets all 5 of my top 5 reasons why I fall in love with an item as a Kit Essential.
