What's in my travel bag?

So for those that are unaware, I went for a night away in a swish hotel last weekend. With it being only one night, I was cheeky and used my boyfriends rucksack for the majority of my belongings. With this being the case, I had to pack lightly. I even did away with hair straighteners which kinda made me anxious but I got through it!

I thought I'd show you just how limited I can be when forced. As long as my essentials were included, anything else was a bonus...

L-R (Back row) Elizabeth Arden Skin Balancing Moisturiser. I received this in my most recent GB, and due to the size, I thought now is the best time to give this a whirl, otherwise I probably never will.
Mouthwash - this isn't actually what it says on the bottle, it's still mouthwash of course, but FYI it's Listerine inside that instead :-)
Batiste dry shampoo. Because I knew I wasn't taking hair straighteners, that meant I couldn't wash my hair or else I'd be going out like a fizz-hog the next day, so instead I did 2nd day hair and used this instead to freshen it up a little.
Dove anti-perspirant. If I'm completely honest this is something thats been sat in what I call my 'travel box' for ages. I used it for a weekend away a while back and it was still half full, but I was determined to use it up. Thing is, I'm not keen on the smell, it reminds me of cucumbers, which as a deoderant, I don't find pleasant! Thankfully I was able to use this up whilst I was there, and in the bin it went. So.Satisfying.
Como Shambhala body lotion. I'm in 2 minds with this, simply because of the smell, its quite herbal and spicey, something I'm not too keen on, however I've received 2 of these buggars from GB over my time with them so I need to start getting rid!
Estee Lauder Eye make-up remover. Although again, this isn't what it says on the bottle - it is eye make-up remover, but by Botanics, I just think its handy to save little bottles like this for occasions like these!
Ickle Bockles - this is a company that sent me a bunch of freebies over a year ago now, and this little cute thing is actually a fold up toothbrush.
Caudalie perfume/spritzer. I have loads of perfume samples, but this being the biggest, I decided to take this so I was sure that I wasn't going to run out. Again, another item from GB. This seems to be lasting me ages. Its now in my work handbag and I am forever getting complimented on it when sprayed at work. Perfect little handbag friend.

For products, I think I did pretty well! I could have taken shower gel and soap etc, but 99% of hotels have these things included now so I knew not to bother. In fact our hotel was pretty equipped with luxury products.

Do you think you could pack as lightly as this for one night? Intriguied!
