Our Top Beauty Products for Holiday & Handluggage

If you’re anything like us, you’ll be booking your summer getaway soon (if you haven’t yet already!), which means it’s time to start thinking of what to pack. When it comes to packing your beauty products, less is always more, but we know that it’s easier said than done and it’s so easy to over-pack (although… You definitely need five blushers for a week, don’t you?)

We share the go-to guide on what to pack for your summer holiday…


Multi Use Marvels

Fine One One Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant 50ml Benetint Cheek And Lip Tint 12.5ml

As space is always limited (especially if you want to take six pairs of shoes with you), it’s a good idea to find products which can be used for more than one use. Benefit Fine One One is your no-fuss go-to blush/highlighter/lip colour, and is right on trend with it’s coral and orange hues. If you need something for your hands, face and anything else, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is perfect for moisturising any dryness – which is also great for the heat! If you’re a Nars fan, you’ll love The Multiple, which is a highlighter for the cheeks, eyes, lips and body. The wide array of tones means you’ll find your perfect shade. A classic multi-use product is Benefit Benetint, which gives a brilliant red tint to the cheeks and the lips.

The Clarisonic Plus Face & Body is the best way to make sure your skin is getting all the goodness from the fresh air and sunshine.

Perfect to use with the Clarisonic, ensure your cleaner is the most natural it can be with the Gamila Secret Travel Pouch and Facial Bar. This sweet little pouch will keep the soap contained and away from your clothes, which comes in handy when it comes to packing.

Alice Carroll

I'm Alice, Al or, if you are the five year old me, Ice (yes, I did want to be a member of Kris Kross, and yes, I did wear my jeans backwards). Womenswear Editor at House of Fraser Online, I've grown out of backwards clothes and instead chose to invest my money in vintage sportswear and bomber jackets, while inking my body with unnecessary tattoos and rapping along to every word of The Streets - Original Pirate Material. My proudest moments were seeing a shoot I styled in my favourite magazine and getting a three-dart-finish in a game of darts. Oh, and Bart Simpson was my first crush.
