GALLERY >> THE WEEKEND BEAUTY BUYS
1. Verso Travel Kit, £40
"Verso's [a target="_blank" href="http://www.cultbeauty.co.uk/verso-travel-kit.html%20">travel kit[/a] was a lifesaver whilst I was away at V festival. The foil packaged trio, which includes their foaming cleanser, day and night creams, is ideally sized to keep you going for a fortnight's trip. The gentle cleanser removes all traces of make-up, whilst the SPF 15 day cream is loaded with Retinol 8 and Vitamin B3 to improve skin's elasticity and boost collagen production. The night cream enhanced with oats and more Retinol 8 keeps skin soft and supple. Thankfully they're clearly numbered, so no matter how many Mojitos you have, you'll still be able to take off the day."
