The Best Under 100ml Skincare For Your City Break

Going on a hand luggage-only holiday? No doubt you’ve already got your passport packed, tickets printed, and outfits sorted, but what about your skincare essentials? Makeup rarely clocks in at over 100ml, but when it comes to skincare, packing and decanting toiletries into a 20×20 bag is the worst part of travelling without hold luggage. 

To help you take the fuss (and mess) out of packing, check out this travel-size skin routine – everything you need for day and night, all under 100ml, and small enough to leave room spare in your bag for more makeup. 

Yes To Coconuts Coffee 2-in-1 Scrub & Cleanser Stick

YETO0221F_1_l

Yes To is a dream when it comes to travel-friendly skincare, since so many of their products come in stick form (which means they don’t count as liquids!). This one has your cleanser and exfoliant sorted in one so there’s no need to pack a separate face scrub – just slick it on straight from the tube. 

Saturday Skin Probiotic Power Mask

SATS0018F_1_L

You might not be able to take your entire moisturiser stash with you, but this probiotic-enriched sheet mask sure makes post/in-flight hydration easy. Whether you wear it on the plane or wait until you check in to your hotel room, it’s the ideal antidote to parched, plane-ravaged skin. 

Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturiser SPF30

MABA0091F_1_L

Most SPFs feel thick and chalky on skin, but this one is way more comfortable than other formulas we’ve tried. The texture is light and melts into skin, leaving it protected and hydrated – thanks to UVA/UVB filters and aloe vera. 

Alpha-H Vitamin E Serum

ALPH0155F_1_L

Refreshing and non-greasy, this hydrating serum soaks into skin in seconds, leaving calm, soft skin in its wake. It’s especially kind to sensitive skin and does an A+ job of soothing sunburn and protecting skin from cell damage, which is ideal for days when you spend too much time in the sun. 

Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentre Nourishing Moisturiser

EMBR0003F_1_L (2)

A multitasking moisturiser is a travel must. It may not look like much, but this lightweight and skin-quenching cream can be used day and night, as a mask, and even does double-duty as a makeup primer. 

Revolution Niacinamide Essence Spray

RESK0021F_1

If you have a long flight ahead or are headed to a hot destination, you’ll need a refreshing face spray to get you by. This one is ideal as it’s boosted with niacinamide, which helps to boost hydration, smooth skin texture, and reduce blackheads, breakouts, and redness – basically a six-step skincare routine in one.
