Planning a weekend getaway but not sure which beauty essentials to pack?

You're desperate for a break, but not on the beauty front... Here are our tips on travelling light without compromising your glowing complexion!

TIP
1

Travel size products

We no longer need to decant our lotions and potions. Nowadays travel size day/night creams and cleansers are all the rage.

Which means we can still enjoy pampering our skin whilst we're away! The single-dose option: small enough to slip in your pocket.

A weekend away or overnight stay?

Pick up single dose treatments or raid your sample drawer.

100ml - the hand luggage maximum!

In 2007, laws were introduced banning containers in hand luggage with more than 100ml of fluid. Be warned that this is now a global norm and customs will confiscate or make you leave behind any items that exceed this limit. It's a security measure, the added benefit being that we can pack light. It may complicate our lives, but it's also forced cosmetic companies to come out with handy, travel-sized options. Even so, it can be a real pain in the butt deciding what to pack and what to ditch when preparing our vanity case.
