My City Travel Staples.

I find packing up beauty products for a trip is always quite a task – I never really know how much of a product I’m going to use, and then there’s the issue of over or underpacking.
This time I was more organised than usual; I’ve been hoarding beauty samples, keeping aside travel sets and stocking up on cleanser…

Susanne Kaufmann Cleansing Milk; I’m having a bit of a cleansing milk moment right now, I find they’re so easy to remove makeup and really make the evening skincare routine such an effortless task.
I got the 100ml size of this and it’s ideal for travelling (although it is in a glass bottle…), I can never seem to find travel-sizes over 30ml, which just doesn’t work for me as I’m pretty liberal with my products!

Kiehl’s Creme De Corps Travel Size; I just adore this dinky Kiehls offering! I love taking this lotion with me as it works wonders on dry skin – and it’s a must if you have legs like a reptile but love wearing dresses, like myself. Attractive.

Ouai Treatment Masques; Just because I’m on the move doesn’t mean I can’t look after my hair! I love keeping a sachet or two of these Ouai masks on hand, they’re essential for beach holidays and city breaks alike.


Liz Earle Travel Sizes; These are always my go-to for trips, you can’t go wrong with Liz Earle minis! The brand stock their essential skincare treats in handy travel sizes so you never have to go without the beloved Skin Tonic, or my favourite Soothing Eye Lotion.

Byredo Mojave Ghost Travel Set; This is my favourite fragrance ever, I wear it almost daily – so of course I’m going to be packing a travel size for my trip. I can never bear to take a big bottle of perfume with me, so these adorbs vials come in so handy.
Hourglass Surreal Light Ambient Lighting Palette; My makeup bag wouldn’t be the same without this gorgeous palette – I use this daily at home, so it makes sense to pack it for trips too.
I love the mix of blush hues, and the included highlighter, face powder and bronzer make it a very handy palette for packing. Plus it’s beautiful, so there’s that.

Other Stories Miami Muse Hand Cream; Of course, my favourite hand cream is never far from me. Another fragrance I can’t get enough of, this dreamy cream softens and soothes parched hands in an instant. It’s my most loved hand cream, I can’t think of a bad thing to say about it!

Quite the lineup of mini travel treats, I’m definitely feeling ready for whatever travel plans come my way! What do you think of my packing picks?
