If you’re anything like me, you often catch yourself dreaming of jetting off to somewhere fabulous for the weekend. You know, somewhere where you can soak up some sun, sip on delicious cocktails, take long walks on the beach, indulge in spa treatments and enjoy romantic dinners … you see, there I go again!
Okay, so maybe you’ll just be visiting somewhere local for a weekend away or a quick business trip and not a dreamy private island, but either way you’ve got to take your beloved beauty products along to stay fresh and fabulous.
These are my favourite travel-ready skin and hair products that are perfect for tossing into your carry-on so that looking glam will be on your itinerary no matter your destination!
Dermalogica Ultracalming Cleanser
If you’ve got sensitive skin that’s prone to redness and irritation like I do, your skin is sure to adore this creamy gel cleanser. It’s especially ideal for using on those days when you’ve spent lots of time out in the sun or swimming in saltwater.
Essence My Skin Refreshing Toner
I love this toner because it’s light, hydrating and suitable for all skin types. It also smells like grapes, which is awesome, too! It’s handy for refreshing for your skin at any time of day as well as for removing excess make-up that’s left on your skin after using a make-up wipe.
Ordinary Skincare Day Cream SPF 30
For a healthy dose of hydration, all you need is one pump of this day cream that’s formulated with only the most skin-friendly all-natural ingredients. The sun-protective formula is a little thicker than most day creams, so I find that if you apply it early in the morning it keeps your skin fresh and plump all day. Plus, it doubles as a make-up primer!
Beauty Fix Radiant Makeup Finish Spray
This gorgeous-smelling make-up spray can be used in three ways – to prime your skin before applying make-up, to freshen up your make-up throughout the day, and to set your make-up to kept your look intact for hours. I personally love using it to freshen up my look the most – it lends skin the most beautiful glow, so there are no need for constant bronzer touch-ups!
Mineraline Aloe Vera Mud Mask 70%
You never know when your skin may decide to break out, so it’s always handy to have a soothing facemask on hand! I love this one because the formula is enriched with genuine Dead Sea black mud, which calms and clear problem skin in a snap.
Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo
Every girl needs a bottle of dry shampoo stashed in her handbag … you don’t want to waste precious time washing and styling your locks, do you? I love this formula because it smells heavenly, degreases strands, and comes in two tints so it doesn’t leave behind that chalky cast that other types do.
Hask Keratin Protein Smoothing Shine Oil
Factors like too much time out in the sun, swimming in a chlorinated pool or too much heat styling can leave your hair looking drab and lifeless. This luxurious keratin-rich hair oil will hydrate your hair while lending it a gorgeous shine minus any oily residue. Using it regularly will also strengthen your hair in the long-term (bonus!).
Fudge Urban Iced Coconut Cocktail Hairspray
Sometimes it’s just more fuss-free and quicker to put your hair up, whether it’s in an elegant updo or a sleek ponytail. This natural-feeling hairspray provides a strong hold with anti frizz to keep any style in place. Plus, it smells just like a pina colada – can you say dreamy?
