Here's the top 8 travel beauty essentials you can't forget when on vacation
Give your skin a treat while you're on vacation with these travel must-haves
We’ve been there. Every time we pack for our holidays, we bust out our disposable travel-sized bottles and fill it with product from our regular-sized shampoo, conditioner, and more. Sometimes, we miss out an item or two, then we scream internally when we unpack our bags at the hotel room or Airbnb. Instead of going through the frustration this summer holidays, we decided to pick out some holiday travel kits that we want to add to our luggage. Plus, we also picked out some beauty essentials you’ll need to pack into your bags, since not everything can be thrown into a kit for sale, sadly.
We’re not kidding when we say we haven’t come across someone who doesn’t like this Australian brand. If you insist you’re an outlier, skip this. If not, we think all of us can benefit from having this travel kit handy whether we’re taking a long-haul flight or a short trip. It comprises a rinse-free hand wash, hand balm, hydrating face mask, face mist, lip cream, mouthwash and toothpaste. Other than the face mask, which we think you can use in the comfort of your hotel room or Airbnb, the rest of the set will keep you feeling refreshed during your journey and soothe frazzled nerves since Aesop’s products all smell so great and calming.
6. Soleil Toujours Organic Set + Protect Micro Mist SPF 30, $55
This 60ml sunscreen mist fits easily into any bag for easy touch-ups on the go. It’s made of over 70 per cent organic ingredients, and gives up to 80 minutes of water-resistant sun protection. The brand also prides itself on being reef-safe, so you can spritz and reapply your sunscreen without having to worry about the environmental effect, especially if you are at the beach.
7. Briogeo Farewell Frizz Frizz Control Travel Kit, $37
Even if you’re going to bun your hair up your entire trip, you need to tote along at the very least, a shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment. This set fits the bill, and has not one but two leave-in treatments – a conditioning spray and heat-protecting cream so you can have Instagram-ready hair every single day. This kit is also TSA-approved, so you can bring it along during your flight to freshen up your hair (like you would your face) before disembarking.
How many times have you forgotten to pack your comb, only to reach the hotel and realise that the flimsy, disposable one just doesn’t cut it for you? Well, too many times to count, for us. So we love this paddle brush from Aveda, which is a miniature-sized version of their best-selling paddle brush. It’s a little bigger than our palm, but the handle fits perfectly into our hands, making it small enough to fit inside our travel bags yet big enough to not feel insubstantial.
