9 Travel Kits That Take the Thinking Out of Holiday Packing

9 Travel Kits That Take the Thinking Out of Holiday Packing

July 17, 2018 

I don’t know about you, but I find that the hardest part of packing for a holiday is always – always – streamlining my beauty collection. On my last trip, I ended up with three toiletry bags. It’s easy to get carried away when selecting the hair, skin and body essentials that will get you through a week in the sun, which is where the brilliance of travel beauty kits steps in.
If anything’s going to turn you into an organised packer (packing squares and checklists aside), it’s a curated kit holding all you need for glossy hair, dewy skin and bronzed cheekbones. There’s an abundance of sets on offer, but we’ve selected the best for all manner of trips, from L’Occitane’s city break heroes to La Mer’s sumptuous in-sun solutions. Keep scrolling to find the sets that belong in your suitcase...
Patchology On The Fly Kit £18

If ever there was a time to harness the concentrated, high-performance power of a mask, it’s a) when skin is parched from the sun and b) when you want to return home to tens of “you look well” compliments. Patchology has all areas covered - eyes, lips and face - with its pack of serum-soaked sheets that push hyaluronic-fuelled hydration deep into your pores. There are two full-face masks, so use one after your outbound flight and the other when you return home. Save the eye and lip patches for a mid-week treat.
