Travel Sized Products
Getting ready to travel on an airplane? Here’s our edit of the best mini beauty products you can pop into your hand luggage for a seamless trip. And good news, everything’s 100ml and under.
From beach getaways to ventures along the coast, summer is the perfect time to escape to your dream holiday destination. Prepping for a trip that involves travel via airplane normally involves running down to your local store to find travel-sized products, and with airline rules being as strict as a ruler, it can be hard to find your favourite shampoo encased in a tiny pocket-sized bottle. The rules that we must abide to are simple; firstly, containers must hold no more than 100ml. Secondly, everything needs to be placed in a single, transparent plastic bag that’s approximately 20cm by 20cm in size. With this in mind, going on a hand luggage only trip forces even the most minimal traveller to rethink their products. The law requires us to keep our products to a minimum, however that doesn’t mean quality gets skimped out on. Products that work double duty are essential to your kit and fortunately, abundant in miniature forms. Here’s our edit of the best travel-friendly products you can bring onboard so you can enjoy your holiday without having to sacrifice your beauty regime.

#### Skincare No matter where you’re travelling to, it’s essential to look after your skin, especially if you’re going somewhere that’s completely different in temperature. Always pack a cleanser in your kit and [La Mer's The Cleansing Micellar Water]( cleanses and removes any grime off your skin in one step. If you want to pack an eye cream, [NARS’ Total Replenishing Eye Cream]( works to restore radiance in all skin types and is only 15ml. No skincare routine is complete without a moisturiser, and [this mini one by Clinique]( hydrates skin for 72 hours and can also be used as a five-minute mask. SPF is a must have for any hot-weather destination, so pack [Clarins’ Mineral Sun Care Fluid]( in your bag to prevent any sun damage to your face.
#### Make-up When it comes to packing make-up, pack products that are key to your routine. Start with a primer, like [MAC’s mini version]( of their [Prep + Prime Fix](, which gives skin an instant hydration boost before make-up. Look for long-wear foundations like [Clinique’s Even Better Hydrating and Repairing Foundation](, which stays put throughout the entire day without flaking, and double-duty products in tiny sizes. [Charlotte Tilbury’s Mini Miracle Eye Wand]( features a light-reflecting colour-corrector on one end and a concealer on the other, and [Clarins Glow 2 Go Duo Stick Highlighter]( contours, sculpts and can be easily slipped into a handbag. [MAC’s Mini version]( of their [Strobe Cream]( comes in handy for when you need to glam up your look. Choose flattering eyeshadows for the eyes, and [this palette from NARS]( features two highly-pigmented shades in a small case, allowing you to build up as much drama as you desire. Finish your eyes off with [this compact mascara from MAC](, and moisturise your lips with [Clinique Moisture Surge Lip Hydro-Plump Treatment]( for a glistening finish.
#### Hair & Body & Perfume Dry shampoo comes in handy for days where you’ll be out for long periods of time and [Aveda’s Shampure Dry Shampoo]( is the perfect solution for second-day hair; spritz it over even the most sensitive of scalps for instantly refreshed hair. To rescue hair from heat damage, apply [Aveda’s Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment]( after shampooing for revitalised locks. A body oil is a great multi-purpose product to pack and [this nourishing one from Kiehl’s]( can be used all over the body for a glowing, hydrated finish. Top everything off with a fragrance and [Tocca’s Stella Eau de Parfum]( comes travel-sized and infused with notes of blood orange for a citrusy, summery scent. Alternatively, [Jimmy Choo’s Fever Eau de Parfum]( captures an intoxicating smell with intense floral notes and stays on from morning to night.
