Whether you're jetting off for some much needed sun, exploring a new city or planning a staycation this summer, our beauty team have picked out their favourite tried and tested, travel-friendly beauty essentials that will keep your skin glowing, hair glossy and add a touch of glam wherever you go.


Bobbi Brown Vitamin Mini Enriched Face Base

"Bobbi Brown’s Mini Vitamin Enriched Face Base is my true travel essential. It’s the best product out there for keeping my base in place, plus it acts as a moisturiser as well as a primer, thanks to a skin-loving blend of hyaluronic acid, shea butter and vitamins".

Penny, junior content manager.



"I mix it with my moisturiser at night to keep my skin glowing as I build my body tan! I’d never go on a Summer trip without it".

Grace, senior commercial marketing executive.


By Terry Beach Bomb Brightening CC Palette

'This glistening summer palette is my 1 way ticket to a show-stopping glow! Laced with a subtle rose scent, these shimmery pigments give my cheeks just the right amount of pop. My top tip? Dust blush on the tip of your nose for a cute sun-kissed look".

Alice, content executive.


Moroccanoil Treatment Light

"I can't go anywhere without the Moroccanoil treatment - even more so when I am travelling abroad as not only does it give me super sleek and shiny locks, but it also locks in moisture to eliminate frizz! It's a travel essential and you only need a little!".

Amy, partnership marketing manager.


Eyeko Black Magic Travel Sized Eyeliner

"This eyeliner has a super precise tip with full pigmentation, even if has been rattling around in your bag sideways. Applying this is the easiest way to add both drama and fun to your makeup without having to take loads of eyeshadow palettes in your luggage".

Hannah, senior data analyst.


La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ SPF30 with Niacinamide

"This lightweight, niacinamide-enriched moisturiser is my go-to all year round, home or away. The handy 40ml size means I can keep my skincare routine consistent when I'm on holiday, which is perfect for my acne-prone skin. It not only keeps my complexion balanced and prevents oil build up, but also contains SPF so I don't have to worry about application on top of my usual skincare'.

Holly, content executive.


Tangle Teezer Compact Styler Hairbrush

"A mini Tangle Teezer is a staple in my travel bag. Perfect for on the go and taking around on day trips on holiday, super secure to hold despite it being so small and it glides easily through my hair - I couldn't be without it!".

Mali, CRM manager.


PURITO Daily Go-To Sunscreen

"It's super lightweight and doesn't make me feel greasy. A little goes a long way so good value for money".

Harrison, partnership development assistant.
