Travel Beauty Essentials

Bumble & Bumble Brilliantine

A one-stop wonder product, Brilliantine transforms humidity hit hair into something a little more passable. My second day hair has a habit of looking particularly frizzy and fluffed, but a small blob of this stuff is enough to calm it down and add some subtle, lived in texture to the lengths.

Coconut Oil

Depotting a spoonful of coconut oil has become a ritual no matter where in the world I travel. It's comes in handy for just about everything, from taming frizzy hair to serving as a rich body moisturiser. I've been using it to remove my makeup for years now and it's a method that hasn't failed me so far.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

The newest addition to my skincare routine is perfect for travelling, making light of makeup removal and being rich enough to provide a deep cleanse if needed, too. This travel size bottle is perfect for taking on the go and is sure to last a long time considering you only need a few drops with every use.

Kiehl's Skin Rescuer

Daily moisturiser is something that you'll probably want to take with you wherever you go, but the packaging of the Skin Rescuer makes it a perfect addition to your toiletry bag. It's made of plastic and comes with a convenient pump and cap, reducing the risk of any spills. It calms stressed skin too and comes in really handy when your complexion is feeling dehydrated and lacklustre.

Dr Paw Paw Original Balm

A handy balm to be carried around in your handbag as well as inside your suitcase. Made with natural pawpaw, it can be used as a lip balm, a hair smoother or to soothe and hydrate irritated skin. In desperate times I've even applied this onto sunburn in order to prevent blistering and it's worked wonders.

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer

No matter the level of coverage you're looking for, you're pretty much guaranteed to be able to achieve it using SSE. It can be mixed with moisturiser for all over coverage, with an eye cream for use underneath the eyes or applied neat to spots and blemishes that need something a little more heavy duty.
