As you might know, I recently travelled to Poland. For the journey, I only used hand luggage meaning that my space was limited... and so were my liquids. This caused me to be cautious with my packing, and through the experience I found five travel mini's (or small products) that were absolutely essential to my trip.
Yes, this is a brow pen. Yes, it's an essential.
This brow pen by Gosh was my actual lifesaver so many times over my holiday. I had gotten my brows threaded the day before I travelled, so my brows were looking pretty thinner than usual and I needed to be able to fill them in so that they looked as "on fleek" as possible at all times.
Because it comes in such compact packaging, it was great for packing as I could literally just pop it in my handbag without it even having any effect on the space or weight. Plus it really is long lasting... it even lasted in the Polish heat.
It's soo important to keep your lips hydrated when you travel, especially on long haul flights. While the flight to Poland was only 2 and a half hours, it was still really crucial that my lips were looked after... and that's exactly what this cute little lip balm did. Baby Lips by Maybelline are probably one of the best lip balms that I've ever used, so I would 10/10 recommend.
When travelling, you always want to have a bit of colour and contour. I mean, you want to have colour and contour 24/7 regardless of whether you're travelling or not, but you get what I mean. Bronzer isn't a question; it's a must. And this Natual Bronze by Rimmell is just perfect. You can layer it up to get a darker shade, or just brush it over for a softer glow.
Travel mini's like this Palmolive Nourishing Delight Shower Gel are an absolute must when travelling; whether you're only using hand luggage, or have checked in luggage. They take up much less space in your bag, and I've found they last me well on holiday. I really love the scent of this shower gel, but pretty much any shower gel/shampoo/conditioner mini combo is a must when going on a trip.
Speaking of travel mini's, I've found that perfume samples work an absolute treat when you're going abroad. While most perfume bottles are actually under the 100ml airport rule, they can be heavy and bulky, so perfume samples come to the rescue.
The last thing you want on holiday to a hot country is to feel stinky and sweaty, and these perfume samples are a perfect size for your hand luggage, and hand bag. You can get 5 free samples a month from Feel Unique, which is where I got this Hugo Boss for women sample.
