All The Holiday Beauty Essentials You Need In Your Carry-On

Keeping on top of your skincare and makeup routine while on holiday doesn’t have to include checking in a heavy bag.

Sure, the 100ml restriction doesn’t offer much wiggle room, but never fear, because beauty brands have made it their mission to serve up all manner of savvy, compact beauty products, from solid cleansers to Instagram-worthy mini lipsticks, to make packing lightly so much easier.

The key is compatibility, not compromise, so forget about decanting your creams and concealers into tiny jars, leaving your brand new moisturiser at check-in, or taking an 11th-hour panic trip to Boots' travel aisle (we've all been there).

Instead, go from arrivals to pre-dinner cocktails with our edit of the best travel-friendly, multipurpose beauty essentials, all 100ml and under, to save you from battling with airport security.

Frances Prescott Tri-Balm
Simplifying skincare routines for the time- and travel-conscious, Tri Balm is the brainchild of makeup artist and expert facialist, Frances Prescott. It combines an innovative, cruelty-free formula of blackcurrant, starflower, echium and oat extract with native English oils to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise all in one.

Our new favourite travel companion, simply twist it up, Pritt Stick-style, and apply either to your hands or directly to your face to melt away makeup. (Yep, that includes the most stubborn of mascaras.) Once rinsed or tissued off, you’ll be left with squeaky clean and sumptuously soft skin.
