Packing Series // The body

Hi you lovely ladies!
This is going to be a fairly short post, as I'm in the middle of my camping trip but just had some time to kill so I wanted to blog - yay! As you may know from my previous post, I've made a Packing Series where I'm going to show you what I packed for my first camping trip - ever. These posts are inspired by Vivianna's videos and posts about packing for different occasions. 

This post is on - as you can tell from the title - all of the body stuff I brought with me. 
Vivianna suggests packing a razor, shower gel, body lotion, SPF, rollerball perfume. 
As previous post I took the suggestions and made it my own :) So if you want to see what I brought with me then just read on! 
The first thing that pops in my mind when I think 'Camping' is insects and especially mosquitoes!! Last year, when I was in China I got attacked by mosquitoes. I couldn't count how many bites I had on my right leg, if I wanted to and they were big and red. When I went to the Chinese pharmacy and showed them the bites, the pharmacist made some weird: Uh, oh, ah, nooo noises and began to scratch his own leg. After all of the scratching he handed me these two products, which worked wonders for the itchi-ness. The green bottle-spray is to prevent the mosquito bites and the little yellow jar is for when you've already have a or more bites. I call these my Chinese Hocus-Pocus poisons

I did a The Body Shop Collection Part 1 over at Becky from Lipgloss and Lashes' blog - go take a peek and vote for her in the Cosmopolitan Awards! 

Part 2 is going to up on my blog later :) 

In part 1 I showed this The Body Shop Body Butter in Papaya, if you've read the guest post you'll know that it's not my favourite, but I'm going to use it up. It gives moisture, but the smell is too much in this case. It's nearly empty so brought it with me just to give my body some extra moisture other than my Sun Screen. 
To be honest I didn't really have any specific brand in mind. I just went in and bought some. I think I've used this one before or something like it. What sold me on this sunscreen was the 'High Protection' and 'Light and Silky'. First of I didn't really know much about sunscreen. Of course I knew that I should use it and it protects your skin against the sun but what the correct meaning of the SPF - wasn't in my knowledge before I watched this video from Body Talk Daily ft. Pixiwoo and London Beauty Queen.
Go watch it and learn! 

But anyways, I ended up with this Garnier Ambre Solaire Sunscreen, which is good so far. 

Lastly for this body post you have to remember a razor, us girls have to shave. It wouldn't be lady like to just leave the hair growing to it self - now imagine how that would look. That's all I have to say about this ;)

Is there anything you would have brought or wouldn't? And let me know if you watch the video, and what you thought? I Thought it was really interesting.

Oh and let me know if you have any sunscreen recommendations! 

So the post wasn't as short as I thought it would be - sorry. Hope you liked it though :)

Have a great day, hopefully I'll have a new post up soon. It's just a bit difficult with this non-existent wifi ;) 

I'm now going and walk the dogs and then dinner is served. 

Don't forget to vote for the cosmo awards ;)

Thanks so much for reading

Love Marie-Louise
