Your holiday survival kit
Whether you’re jet-setting to Europe to freeze your butt off or heading to Queensland for some fun in the sun, packing your beauty bag for travel is no doubt at the top of the ‘to do’ list.
But figuring out what to pack and what to leave behind can be a serious struggle, and one that can leave you lugging your entire bathroom cabinet around Paris while you should be flexing your shopping muscles instead. C’mon guys, priorities!
So to help you streamline your beauty bag, we’ve rounded up the goodies that’ll keep you looking, feeling and smelling fine on your holiday, all while keeping your checked luggage weight under the limit.
NÜGG 4-Pack: Cleanse, Soothe & Hydrate, $14.95, www.priceline.com.au
Air conditioning, flying, heat and cold can take a toll on your skin. These little cleansers, exfoliators and masks are a ridiculously cute way to refresh and revive your skin while you’re on the go. Simply peel off the pod lid, and lather up!
The little sister of the FOREO LUNA facial cleansing devices, this beauty will fit snuggly in your travel case. To use, pop a dollop of cleanser on the silicone touchpoints and switch it on. Then, gently massage over your face to whisk away pollution, dirt and oil.
Save your body, cuticles and lips from dryness and dehydration by slathering on this multi-purpose rescue balm as often as possible. This pack comes with three 20mL tubes, so throw one in your carry-on, beauty bag and handbag to soothe, soften and calm your skin anytime, anywhere.
Ditch the heavy foundation and powder on your vacay and opt for a lightweight BB cream instead. This one from Mineralogie will give your skin a gorgeous veil of colour, evening out, protecting and brightening it along the way. Hello, holiday glow!
Studies show that the scent of vanilla has a relaxing and calming effect on the brain, so get in the holiday mood and bask in the sweet fragrance of this vanilla solid perfume. Gently rub it on your pulse points like the wrists, temples and behind the knees. At only $7.95, this is a steal!
Chuck this hydrating and calming mist in your carry-on to spray your skin back to life during long-haul flights. Not only does it revive and replenish skin, but it also leaves it subtly scented with essential oils like rosewood, organic patchouli and organic neroli.
Now that you’ve got your travel beauty loot sorted, all you need is something pretty to stash everything in. This waterproof beauty bag features four compartments and can be hung on a hook to keep the vanity free from clutter.
