18 Travel Beauty Essentials You’ll Use For Any Trip

By Grace Day, 13th June 2017

Packing a capsule wardrobe for our summer holidays is one thing, but narrowing down our beauty collections is quite another – especially when subject to weight limits and carry-on restrictions…

We’ve compiled a selection of the very best beauty products to streamline your on-the-go beauty stash. From a sleep-inducing pillow spray to a luxe treatment that protects hair from the sun, you’ll find everything you need to check-in and fly – no emergency airport stops required.

Simply fill your basket with £80 worth of products then head to checkout, where you’ll automatically recieve this bag of summer essentials, completely free.

Limited offer while stock lasts. If for any reason you wish to return part of your Beauty Bay haul, and the value of returned goods takes the total value of the order to below £80, the gift must also be returned in full. Promotion starts 13th June 2017 10:00 GMT and is available only whilst stocks lasts. Gift card purchases not included.

Large Makeup Bag

The clear plastic bags we’re forced to carry-on never match up to the Pinterest aesthetics of our hotel bathrooms. Enter this chic black zip-up pouch, which (in a pinch) can double-up as a clutch bag on a night out.

Coming home from a holiday looking healthy and radiant is everyone’s primary goal, right? Add this vitamin-rich powder to your drinking water to ensure you return with an enviable glow.

Brush cleaner is one of those “extras” that gets left at home when packing space is tight. Fortunately this takes up next to no room in your makeup bag, and will keep your brushes in top conditio.

Sun, sea, and chlorine can wreak havoc upon coloured hair. To keep colour-tone bright and vibrant, this travel-friendly mini conditioner will be your new best friend. 

Forget decanting your shampoo into clear bottles – this mini is just enough for a week away of washing, and will boost the vibrancy and shine of colour treated hair too.

A holiday is the perfect opportunity to pare back your makeup routine, but there are some things we just can’t live without. We get our brows tinted before we travel but this clear gel will keep them defined and in shape.

Airplane air conditioning can suck the moisture right out of your skin, which is why slathering on moisturiser beforehand has become a tried-and-tested travellers tip. This hydrating formula makes skin look and feel bouncy and rested.

There’s no reason to let your skincare routine slip up when you go away. Keep this soothing, refreshing toner in the mini-fridge as an instant antidote to dry skin that’s seen just a little too much sun.

Calm in-flight nerves and quell motion sickness with this therapeutic blend of eucalyptus and peppermint. All you need for a mind-calming hit of aromatherapy.

Sun, sea water, and chlorine can leave hair looking more straw-like than glossy. Luckily, this nourishing oil blend works to smooth the cuticle, leaving hair silky smooth and frizz-free. 

Leave bulky eyeshadow palettes and blending brushes at home and keep your evening eye look simple with a clean flick of jet-black eyeliner instead.

Lugging around full-size cleansers for morning and night isn’t the move of a savvy-traveller. This mini duo means you’ll have much more room to pack the really important stuff.

This travel-size spritzer ensures that makeup stays put (no matter what the elements throw at it) whilst injecting some much-needed hydration into sun-parched skin. It also makes a great poolside cool down.

Dry, sunburnt skin is not a good look. This wonderfully moisturising night cream will soothe irritation and rehydrate skin whilst you sleep.

You’ll have your SPF layered on all week long, but did you know that sun is just as damaging to your hair? This treatment has UVA and UVB protection and can easily be toted in your beach bag.

Holidays are all the more enjoyable when you sleep well. Misting your pillow with this lavender and chamomile blend is the best way to drift off if you struggle to sleep well when away from home.

Sleeping doesn’t come easily when you’re on the road/in the air – spritz this through the ends of your hair to promote a restful sleep with a hit of slumber-inducing essential oils which also help top quell bedhead frizz.

The one item of makeup we can’t leave the house without, but can stomach wearing on the beach (no one wants a full face of foundation). Never underestimate the eye-opening (literally) power of mascara.
