Want to travel light, without giving up your favourite beauty products? Opt for travel-size. Here’s a list of must-haves that will be easy to squeeze into your crammed suitcase.
ESSENTIALS – FOR HER
1) A travel kit
Start by finding a travel kit with different compartments that’s not too bulky. You want to have enough space to keep all your essential products in one place.
2) Shampoo and conditioner
These days, lots of brands offer their products in travel sizes. Simply choose the formula that works best for your hair type. For example, if you plan to spend lots of time in the sun and you have coloured hair, choose moisturizing products that will clean and pamper your locks.
3) Make-up remover wipes
If you’re like us, then you rarely have enough space in your luggage for a cleanser and makeup remover. So opt for make-up remover wipes that will cleanse your face, eyes and lips of impurities and makeup. You’ll save both time and space!
4) Body wash
Choose your body wash for its great scent as well as its cleansing properties. And if you expect to spend time in the sun, then choose a mild cleanser with ultra-moisturizing ingredients. We can’t say it enough: sun and heat dry out the skin!
5) A travel-size fragrance
Carry a mini version of your favourite perfume in your purse or suitcase. It travels well and you’re allowed to bring it with you on the plane. What more could you ask for!
ESSENTIALS – FOR HIM
1) A travel kit
Guys: randomly scattering your beauty products throughout your suitcase is a big no-no. A travel kit is an essential item! It will allow you to keep your must-haves well-organized, dry and easy to find when you need them.
2) A 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner
Just like clothing, some products have more than one purpose, so pack a shampoo that also works as a conditioner. It’s space saving and efficient!
3) Body wash
A shower gel that works for both body and face is a must. And don’t just plan to steal your girlfriend’s products! Men’s skin—and its needs—differ from a women’s, so it’s important to use cleansers that are specifically formulated for men.
4) A disposable razor
Even if you don’t plan to shave on your trip, it’s always a good idea to have a razor on hand just in case.
At 30°C, you’ll be happy you brought along some deodorant. It’s a must for controlling odours and sweating.
ESSENTIALS – FOR HIM AND HER
1) Hand cream
Dry hands? Moisturize them whenever you need to and, if necessary, you can also use it on your feet!
2) All-purpose wipes
Can’t find a washroom? Clean your hands, face or body in a jiffy with these handy wipes. You’ll be glad to have them!
Its mini size meets TSA standards, which means you can take it with you everywhere, even on the plane. Perfect for keeping your teeth clean and your breath fresh at all times!
