With Christmas fast approaching many of us are planning a sneaky vacation away. To help you pack, we have put together our top ten picks for must have products while travelling abroad.
1. Clinique De-Puff & Define Eyes $58.00
Coming in a handy little travel case of its own, the De-Puff works wonders for those bags after a big night out in Barcelona. Comes with Mascara and cream to freshen your look completely! Shop it at Clinique.com
2. Garnier Daily All In One B.B Cream $13.95
I have already professed my love for this amazing product before, suffice to say it is the perfect moisturizer, foundation, concealer and blemish cream all in one- handy!
3. Neutrogena Dry Touch Suncreen Lotion $17.99
Sunscreen is a must now that we know the full details on melanoma and skin cancer! Love this Neutrogena sunscreen which is lightweight and not oily, perfect for under foundation. Find out where to shop it here.
4. Waxaway Precision Wax Wand $12.95
If you are planning an extended vacation and you want to make sure that your brows are maintained without having to search for a trustworthy salon overseas, Waxaway is for you. Having used this myself, I have to testify on how easy it is to use. Just twist the wax up through the top and use the pen like applicator to get rid of those rogue hairs. Shop it here.
5. Kate Spade Make Up Bag $70+
You can’t go wrong with Kate Spade, that’s my motto. Of course that’s my motto for many things, like “You can’t go wrong with a new pair of shoes” but I digress. These cute Kate Spade beauty bags come in a huge array of colours and sizes, including clear ones for carry-on and larger ones for check-in luggage. They range from around $70-$150 which is pretty good considering how much you use them! Shop Kate Spade beauty here.
6. ModelCo Cheek + Lips $34.00
Kill two birds with one stone and pick up ModelCo’s amazing Cheek and Lip tinter, and cut down on space in your already overflowing suitcase (if you are anything like me). Snap it up over at ModelCo here.
7. John Frieda Volume Refresher Dry Shampoo $15.99
You would be pretty crazy to go away without packing one of these bad boys, in your check-in not your carry-on of course. Freshen up your hair if it is becoming a little oily or just use it to get that extra oomph for your night on the town. Shop it here.
8. Burberry Body Eau De Parfum 35ml $90.00
Peach, Freesia, Iris, Rose and Green Absinthe are the scent notes that describe the amazing new fragrance from Burberry Body. It seems there is nothing Christopher Bailey can’t do, and fragrance is no exception. Pick up a 35ml bottle that should last you well on a trip- it comes in a gorgeous crystal cut style which fits perfectly in your clutch. Shop it here at Burberry.
9. NARS Bronzing Powder $39.45 and BYS Kabuki Brush $99.95
NARS makes the ultimate range in bronzers, plus they are super compact so great to take along with you on a trip. Always choose a good Kabuki brush, one of my favourites is the super affordable brush from Gloss cosmetics.
10. Maddi & Dyl Cleansing Flannel $15.00
There is nothing better than coming back to your hotel room after a hard day of shopping and freshening up. The Maddy & Dyl cleansing flannel is amazing. Compact and easy to carry the flannel is soft and feels amazing on your face whilst doing the job very well- then dries out until your next use. Shop the flannel here!
