Travel Essentials

Deciding what travel essentials to pack when getting ready to travel can be a nightmare even if it’s just for one night. Trying to decide what is a necessity and what isn’t, can be a challenge! Do you have quite an extensive skincare routine with various masks and treatments? Are you travelling for a few days and don’t know what to bring? We are here to help. There is no need to pack everything. Luckily for you we have comprised a list of essentials that you need when traveling, abroad or at home. 


  • Cleanser & Toner: Your cleanser and toner really are deemed essential for travel! These are 2 products that we use every day, twice a day.  It’s important part of your skincare routine. They prepare the skin for the day and allow all your other products to carry out their functions at the best of their ability. Leaving them behind would almost be a sin! Some of the packaging and containers are quite bulky for these products. You can always decant them into smaller tester bottles if you were tight on space. Leave behind that third pair of heels and pack the cleanser and toner!
  • Moisturiser: Your daily moisturiser is also a very important step in your skincare routine. It helps to keep your skin hydrated and soft during the day. It also prevents dehydration and can act as the perfect base for the rest of your daily routine. 
  • SPF: SPF is a vital part of your daily skincare routine. Especially when travelling and during the summer months. It protects your skin from the harmful UV rays which cause burning, ageing and even skin cancer. Most SPF’s come in smaller bottles or tubes. You can even pop them into your handbag, handy for applying on the go also.
