Holiday travel product hacks: beauty

Get yourself prepped, packed and ready to go on your next trip with our guide to holiday beauty essentials. Whether it’s a European summer getaway or health retreat in an obscure corner of the world, you’ll need these in your suitcase.

Pack less, use more

Save valuable luggage space by picking up travel miniatures of your trusty beauty products. The pharmacy is always a great place to start for hacks like dry shampoo, hand sanitiser and small bottles to decant your favourite products. Invest in cute ready-made packs made purposely for holidays like Jojoba Company Travel Essentials Pack from Priceline Pharmacy. For another space-saver, find new ways to make the most of your makeup so you can wear the same product multiple ways. For example, head to Mecca Maxima and try out pink or red-hued lipsticks which also double as blusher, and travel with an effective cleanser which doubles as a makeup remover to avoid carrying extra products.

Pamper on the plane

Recline the seat back and grab your face wipes, sheet masks, luxe lip balm and hair conditioning cream to create indulgent moments mid-flight. Pro tip: beauty editors everywhere also recommend using a face oil in-flight to keep your skin hydrated from that infamous aeroplane aircon. Find all of these at Mecca Maxima to shop leading brands including Drunk Elephant, Clinique, Summer Fridays and Diptyque.

Get holiday ready

Let the experts at Pure Indulgence help you choose the best skin, body and hair removal treatments for your skin type and specific needs.
