As an avid traveller I have become an expert on packing light.  Over the years I've packed less and less in my suitcases, leaving me more space and weight for those amazing purchases and must-have items from countries I never know whether I will return.

A large part of my packing is my beauty bag.  This used to take up about 5kg+ of weight in my suitcase and now it is a mere 2kg, if that, which includes toiletries for three people!

These days there are numerous branded travel size personal products filling the market, making it easier for packing light, but there aren't many travel size items for skincare, so I would be either taking my full size skincare range with me or filling up containers (which I dislike doing!).

So the fab news is that starter packs or as I like to call them travel packs, has started popping up at Priceline, yay! This will save so much time and less brain confusion when packing my beauty bag. These starter packs contain the necessities that is required for your skin regime.  Cleanser, serum and moisturiser.

I've selected two of my fave brands that currently have Starter Packs.

Trilogy have just released their Limited Edition Starter Sets.  There are four types of sets including: Normal/Dry, Combination/Oily, Age-proof and for Sensitive types of skin. These limited edition sets will only be available for a limited time and will be released in-stores in April 2016.

If you haven't tried Trilogy before then this starter set is perfect to give you a sampler of what their products are all about without forking out for the full size range.

The Trilogy Starter Sets contain three travel sized products.  Not only are perfect for travelling but also perfect for the gym, pool or spontaneous rendezvous weekend.

The pack I have trialle is Age-Proof.  Perfect for any age, the Discover Trilogy Age-Proof kit is essentially made for those who want to protect, smooth and boost radiance for lacklustre or maturing skin.

Active Enzyme Cleansing Creme (30ml)- Powerful fruit enzymes break down and remove skin cell build-up and impurities while gently removing make-up for skin that is brighter softer and more refined.

CoQ10 Booster Oil (5ml) -  This oil contains Glycablend to combat skin-ageing glucation.  This potent blend of pure plant oils boosts collagen and restores radiance for brighter, smoother, more supple skin.

Line Smoothing Day Cream (20ml) - A fusion of natures most active ingredients, this nourishing cream smooths, firms and strengthens, protecting collagen and elastin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Goodness Grab & Go (try-me-kit) have also released a fabulous little trial pack.  Its Try-Me Kit is a whole bunch of chia seed oil natural skincare goodness in adorable minis. Perfect for holidaying or grabbing as a gift, it’s also ideal if you’ve been checking out the Goodness range but not yet given it a go!

There are five pieces to this pack.
