Here’s a list of holiday essentials that you need to pack in order to feel your best while also staying within the safety limit. Video.

When it comes to packing, travelling by plane can be a hassle. Especially if you’re a bit like us and you tend to travel with the absolute minimum! But you don’t want to compromise on the quality of your skin and body care products either. Aside from the limited space in your suitcase, security checks can also make your journey a nuisance, with products outside of the permitted size ending up in the bin. That’s why we’ve chosen ones that don’t take up too much space while sticking to the highest quality standards. Travel-sized beauty products is also great.

1.Going on Holiday without SPF? Never!

Of course, you can’t start your travels off without a high-quality SPF cream. Try the Shiseido Sun Care Clear Stick UV Protector WetForce, which is great for travelling. You can use it on your face and body, both under and over makeup, without even noticing it’s there.

2. Fresh All Day Long

For a fresh feeling that lasts all day, you’ll need a morning shower and an antiperspirant that won’t let you down, even in the most intense heat. You can bet on the Vichy Deodorant 48h to protect you against perspiration for up to 48 hours, while also protecting your clothing from yellow and white stains.

3. Youthful Skin at All Times

If your bathroom is stocked up with serums for every possible occasion, you’ll love using the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex on holiday. It’s a tiny bottle that works wonders. Firm, supple and youthful skin almost overnight. After all, it’s one of the most popular face serums for a reason.

4. Minimalist Makeup Removal

Even on holiday, removing makeup and cleansing your skin is extremely important. Several layers of SPF and dust from the city streets or the beach don’t come off as easily as you may think. Instead of being harsh on your skin, use the mini Clinique Take The Day Off™ Cleansing Balm, which will melt everything away in a flash.

5. Bold Lipstick Solves Everything

Instead of a ton of makeup, reach for a bold, high-quality lipstick. You’ll look amazing all day and your photos will be insta-friendly! If you go for the MAC Cosmetics MACximal Silky Matte Lipstick in the shade Overstatement, you can also use it instead of blusher. 

Great for your carry-on

6. Silky Soft Hair at the Ready

Washing your hair on holiday can be a nuisance. A hairdryer is usually not something you pack, and the ones at hotels are often no use, so it makes sense to avoid them. With the mini Aveda Nutriplenish™ Deep Moisture shampoo, you’ll feel like washing your hair all the time. It does a good job at providing moisture and has a beautiful scent. And don’t forget to throw in a travel-sized conditioner as well.

7. Mascara is a Must

mascara that creates long, voluminous lashes in seconds always comes in handy. And a travel-sized one even more so when it comes to holidays. The Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mini is a great choice, as it doesn’t smudge and has the perfect black colour.

8. The Scent of Relaxation

Make sure to pack the Sol de Janeiro Beija Flor Jet Set as well. It includes a shower gelbody cream and body spray. If you’re not familiar with Sol de Janeiro, now is your chance to find out that you can’t live without it. And their wide range of scents has something for everyone.

9. Perfume? Taken Care Of!

Did you know that the Notino Travel Collection Perfume atomiser is a refillable atomiser that you can fill up with your own perfume, meaning you don’t have to travel with the whole bottle? Brilliant. And when you return from your holiday, you can simply keep it in your hand bag.

10. Pack It All Up Nicely

You can fit everything into the Notino Sport Collection Wet bag set which is waterproof, so that everything stays safe in the event of a disaster. And don’t forget to pack a clear plastic bag for airport security as well.

You can also add in your favourites, of course, but you’ll most definitely be fine with our essentials. We wish you a safe trip! And before you leave, make sure to check out our video.
