Travel Size Beauty Essentials – Short Breaks

travel size beauty products

When packing for holidays, my favourite is always the beauty products part. I use to take anything and everything with me, then end up not using half of it, so in the last year or so, I learnt how to ‘pack savvy‘ and only taking the essentials without using up a lot of weight. I mean, you do need as much space as possible to bring stuff back right? Especially if you’re on a shopping holiday which are one of my faves.

In today’s post, I am sharing my travel size beauty essentials for short breaks. I have already been on my big holiday this year, so in the next few months, I will only be taking a few weekend breaks here and there and have already started the planning for it which I’m super excited about. In my toiletries bag, for skin, I have packed some Simple Cleansing Face Wipes (*) and the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer, these are perfect for quick cleanses and hydration boosts throughout the day. For hair, I’ve gone for a shampoo and conditioner from the Organix Hair Argan Oil of Morocco range and in between washes, my favourite ever, Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush. Body-wise, Sanctuary Spa’s Body Wash will keep my skin clean and soft and I have also included a little Le Couvent Des Minimes Recipe of the Cloister Hand Cream (*) which is perfect for summer days. Lastly, an all-round balm is a must in any travel bag, so I’ve opted for Jurlique’s Love Balm (*), an extremely moisturising and skin-loving salve that protects and softens skin on the go.

What are your travel beauty essentials?

    I love saving sample sizes for going on holiday – I didn't know OGX did travel sizes in their haircare. I really like their products & will have to remember to get some next time I travel.
