When travelling, particularly if you’re going on a long car, coach or plane journey, you need beauty products which are easy to use on a moving vehicle or confined space and which will pack away neatly and tightly. To avoid liquid restrictions I try and aim to find makeup wipes, over miscellar water for example, and I even managed to find deodorant wipes, instead of the liquid alternative! Another necessity is travel size minis of your favourite beauty products for use once you reach your destination. I’ve made a list of travel beauty essentials, perfect for long journeys, long weekends or your summer holiday. With summer just around the corner it’s important to be prepared. As always, click on the photos to shop!
Halo Deodorant Wipes
These wipes are such an innovative idea which I’ve never come across before. These were perfect when I was on a long coach journey and didn’t want to gas everyone around me with deodorant fumes! They gave me a clean feel with a light, fresh scent, and although I wouldn’t like to use these a permanent alternative to deodorant they work as a short term fix. The packaging is small so it didn’t taken up much space in my carry on bag and easy to re-close to prevent the wipes from drying out.
Garnier Miscellar Wipes
Garnier Miscellar Water is my go to makeup remover when I’m at home, I tend to use the sensitive skin one as it is gentle on skin but removes all of my makeup, even waterproof ones. Makeup wipes don’t tend to work as well as other forms of makeup remover but they’re a lot more practical for travelling as no liquids are involved. However, I was pleasantly surprised by these wipes as they took off my makeup to basically the same standard as the original Miscellar Water and left my face feeling refreshed and clean.
Grab & Go Pocket Tissues
Pocket tissues are a necessity for long journeys as they’ve got so many uses; cleaning up spillages, wiping your nose and even bringing into those dodgy service stations you’re guaranteed to visit along the way. This pack was one of the best I’ve ever seen as it had two little resealable compartments inside which each contain tissues. The tissues themselves were strong and durable; for such a bargain buy I was incredibly impressed!
Grab & Go Hand Cleansing Wipes
Hand wipes are extremely helpful for the same kind of reasons as tissues, it’s always useful to have a wipe on hand to freshen up as you often feel very dirty and groggy after a long journey. These hand wipes were not only very effective but also had a lovely, fresh scent which wasn’t too overpowering on my hands. One thing I hate about hand wipes is when they have an overpowering scent which lingers on my hands for hours, which obviously isn’t nice when you’re eating. These ones however did the job well and the inoffensive scent faded after just the right amount of time.
Travel Size Perfume
Personally, I hate going out without perfume to hand and I don’t see why travelling should change this. Travel size perfumes, containing between 10-30 ml of product are perfect for slipping into your bag as they barely take up any space at all. This one, Perceive by AVON has a deep, musky scent and it’s not too overpowering to spritz on throughout the day. After a long journey all you crave for is to smell heavenly and this product makes that dream a reality.
Soap & Glory Scrub Of Your Life
I adore Soap & Glory products and the travel friendly mini size makes them perfect for taking on trips. The Scrub Of Your Life is my go to product for incredibly smooth skin and that infamous gorgeous Soap & Glory scent. It contains 50 ml of product so is plane travel friendly as well.
Soap & Glory Clean On Me
Another brilliant Soap & Glory product that I use time and time again is the Clean On Me shower gel; it also has the signature Soap & Glory scent and leaves my skin smelling and feeling great. The same as the body scrub it contains under 100ml of product so is perfectly travel friendly. These small bottles are also perfect for a short trip or long weekend as you don’t need to use much in only a couple of days, there’s no need to use up space in your case for large bottles when you’re only going to use a fraction of them.
Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter
You can see there’s a trend here! This body butter leaves me feeling absolutely delightful, I slather it on after a shower, particularly after shaving, and let it soak into my skin to leave it shiny and smooth. It works to eliminate dry skin which is perfect if you’re in and out of the pool or sea throughout the holiday. Soap & Glory products are perfect for adding a touch of luxury to your holiday routine.
Soap & Glory Loufer
I got a small size loufer in a pack of Soap & Glory and it’s perfect to toss in my case and use when showering on holiday. Although it is so small it definitely gets the job done and means you don’t have to sacrifice your normal shower routine just because you’re away from home!
That concludes my travel beauty essentials; I use these products when I go travelling and I hope they’re just as useful for you.
