Holiday Beauty Essentials

Going for weekends away is a great time to recharge your batteries, catch up on some much needed rest and enjoy yourself. It also means choosing beauty products that will fit into small luggage so you don’t take away more than you need.

Luckily for you, we have done all the hard work and selected our top beauty essentials that always sneak into our suitcases! All you need to do is pack them and enjoy that holiday!

Our Beauty Picks When Packing For A Weekend Away

Discover which products we cannot live without when we go on weekends away, and why they will make a huge difference to your holiday beauty routine.

Keep your complexion flawless and your skin healthy with the Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation. With added SPF 10 and shields from environmental aggressors, it will help to keep your skin protected, all while ensuring you look radiant and glowing. We love to apply this with our fingers as the heat helps to melt it into skin!

Just because you are relaxing on holiday, doesn't mean you can relax with your skincare routine. Make sure you keep it healthy, nourished and protected with this Travel Set from Lancer Skincare. Containing everything you need for the perfect easy facial, trust us, your skin will thank you and love you.

If you're travelling on a relaxing weekend away, then don't forget to pack this travel candle from Neom. Although it's small and lightweight, it certainly packs a punch when it comes to the delightful scent it gives. We love to light this when it's time for bed and we need to relax and drift off.

Keep your skin protected from damaging UV rays will this moisturiser from Murad. Infused with Vitamin C, the cream energises your skin and keeps it looking radiant. The addition of SPF 30 will ensure your skin stays healthy and well-cared for no matter what the weather throws at you.

There is no need for messy bottles and moving your favourite shower gel into a small container when you have the little Korres Guava Shower Gel. The scent itself is utterly sublime and smells of holiday! It is also super moisturising and contains natural ingredients that care for your skin without irritating it.

Keep your hair full and voluminous with this travel set from Bumble and Bumble. The Full Potential Collection is one of the best loved ranges of the brand, and we can understand why, It gives incredible body, shine and vibrancy, all while feeling super lightweight on our hair.

This gorgeous little FOREO Luna is called the Play, and at Lookfantastic HQ, we're all swooning! It comes in a handy travel case, has up to 100 uses and makes our skin as clean as can be without the weight of carrying the traditional Luna.

For days when you just want to relax and do nothing, look to the new Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo to keep your tresses tamed. Infused with the same lightweight Argan Oil as the original formulations, a simple spritz of this will lift those roots, banish oil and leave you with swishably soft hair.

Modern Muse is perfect to take away with you on your weekend trip as it's great to use for both day and night! We love that its feminine and floral scent is offset by a slight hint of spiciness from the added pink pepper. Plus when you buy any Estée Lauder fragrance this weekend, you will receive an exclusive gift!

Keep your lips looking lovely with the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion. We love how it glides on smoothly, stays put all day and gives our lips a gorgeous wash of colour. Our favourite? The shade Wicked Sweet - it makes our lips look fabulous.

Keep your lips quenched and tasting delicious with this lip balm from our recently launched brand Bee Good. Made with Honey, Beeswax and Propolis, the lip balm is intensely nourishing for dry and damages skin. We love to keep this in our handbags and use throughout the day to keep our lips gorgeously soft.



Skincare Specialist

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
