Travel-Sized Beauty Products

With so many airlines charging hefty hold-luggage fees, many of us are travelling light this summer. A streamlined wardrobe can be liberating, but the snag is always with the wash bag. The limit to 100ml an item means many of our regular products have to be left at home. Take the opportunity to try out some new things with this edit of the best travel-sized beauty:

Glossier Mini Milky Jelly Cleanser

Glossier’s hit milky jelly cleanser now comes in a new 60ml sized travel bottle, so you can take it with you on your summer holidays. Fingers crossed they’ll start offering their other products in miniature soon. £8, 60ml glossier.com

St Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Moisturiser 

Keep your face out of the sun and wrinkles at bay without sacrificing a summer glow with this new St Tropez gradual tan. As a primer and tinted moisturiser, wear it alone or under make up and your colour will build each day of your holiday. £18, 50ml, sttropeztan.co.uk

Sachajuan’s Ocean Mist Shampoo and Conditioner

Stockholm’s famed hair salon, Sachajuan have released these two Scandi hair care products that will just fit into hand luggage. The Ocean Mist range not only looks super inviting, but it’s also immediately effective, giving body and bounce to fine, flyaway hair. Shampoo £10, 100ml cultbeauty.co.uk and conditioner £11, 100ml, cultbeauty.co.uk

The Ordinary Mineral Suncare

The latest product from cult brand, The Ordinary is an antioxidant sun cream for the face that comes in SPF 15 or SPF 30, with SPF 50 launch over the next few weeks. £8.90, 50ml deciem.com

Jo Loves Pomelo Paintbrush Fragrance 

Whilst it’s annoying not being able to take your perfume on holiday, it does present the opportunity to try a new summer scent. We are currently loving Pomelo from Jo Malone’s company, Jo Loves. The paintbrush is fun and small enough to carry in a clutch bag if you’re off to a wedding – just brush on the gel-like fragrance. £40, 18ml joloves.com

Eyeko Beach Waterproof Mascara

The award-winning mascara brand’s waterproof beach wand will carry you straight from the waves to sundowners in the bar. £19, 8ml spacenk.com

Rodin Olio Lusso Jasmine and Neroli Face Oil

We are great fans of Linda Rodin’s face oils which contain the famed olio lusso elixir, and they come in lovely small 15ml travel sizes. This blend of Egyptian jasmine, Moroccan neroli and evening primrose is calming and soothing, giving a dewy glow after a flight. £60 15ml, libertylondon.com

Space NK Travel Bag 

Never again scrabble around decanting the contents of your washbag amongst the airport throng. Invest in this smart, clear make-up bag from Space NK instead and do the packing at home. Plus, their Travel Sized collection online is excellent for holiday-sized beauty. £24, spacenk.com
