Packing for a RTW trip means that you have to forego all the luxuries you are used to having on a daily basis at home - things like your hair products, straightner/curler, make-up, perfumes, body lotions, exfoliators, conditioners, shampoos, masks, ..the list goes on

Once you get on the road, you probably find that you can actually do without most of these things most of the time, but everyone has days where they just wish they could pamper themselves and get dressed up.

How long can you go before you need a good pampering?

Don't know never found my limit. OTOH, I'm a guy. Normal pampering rules don't apply to us.

One thing I must have though, because of my oily skin, is a good face cleaning in the morning.

Quan, I'm the same way. I need no 'pampering' at all, but when I first wake up in the morning I need to wash my face or I feel gross.

I was on the road for 2 weeks before I just had to buy some perfume. I was getting sick of the same soap smell all day.

Grrrrr. I hate that word. I will NEVER be a metrosexual . I'd rather be a lumberjack! Rustic.;)

Good for you, Evan!! Whatever happened to good ol' soap and water as the perfect product??

Sorry Ev - I'm just that old fashioned!

Isa grabs her bar of Ivory soap and leaves the thread...

No need to be sorry Isa! Everyone's different. Must make your travelling a helluva lot easier anyway;)

It's usually only a couple of weeks before I need a nice hot bath with loads of bubbles!
