Top Ten Travel Products

Top 10 Travel Products

If you're lucky enough to be taking a trip, visiting the city or heading to a sunny spot in a lush country then these top pics should be right up your alley. 

1. Facial Cleanser - Cleanser is a must have. Clean away the dirt, grease, grime and sweat with a good-gentle cleanser. 

2. BB Cream / Tinted Moisturiser - When it's sunny or hot the last thing you want to wear is a heavy foundation. Chances are your skin will improve and any spots, scarring or pimples will fade so let it breathe in a light BB cream or tinted moisturiser. 

3. Eyebrow Felt Pen - This is an optional product. I like products that do more than one thing and these definitely do, you can use this as an eyebrow pen to make you look put together and, you can use this as an eye liner. The lighter tones don't look harsh on the skin. 

4. Lip Balm - A light moisturising base ideally one with added SPF. The lips need that extra bit of care in the hot weather and a lip balm is a great way to finish your look too. 

5. Leave in Hair Conditioner - My favourite is Nicky Clarke. There are so many brands though it's best to find you're favourite. Nicky Clarke doesn't leave the hair heavy, limp or greasy in my opinion. 

6. Summer Fragrance - Summer fragrances tend to be lighter and more crisp than their non-summer counterparts. I personally don't like citrus or aquatic scents and tend to opt for a more nude and delicate fragrance for summer. I'd also fully recommend a fragranced body spray as they are lighter, easy to transport and don't cost as much. 

7. Nail Polish - Depending on where you are going, your personal favourite colours and what look you're going for our recommendations are to opt for a vibrant pop of colour or a good nude. If you're feeling rather un-decisive why not take the both. 

8. Lip & Cheek Stain - Again another multi-use product that can withstand the heat. A powder is a no go as it will cake and run in hot weathers. 

9. Waterproof Mascara - Pandas never looked good on anyone so check your mascara is a waterproof version. 

10. Moisturiser - You need to keep your skin hydrated to lessen the damage. Hydrate-hydrate-hydrate guys. 

11. Tea-Tree - Great for cuts, bruises, pimples and spots, beasties and burns. This is a really multi-functional product guys. You can add it to moisturiser, shampoo's, balms or diluted to apply directly. 

12. Sunscreen - No brainer really. Ideally a SPF 30+. 

13. After Sun / Aloe - Clinique make a product that is both an after sun and aloe based product. Aloe is one of the best plants to soothe burnt skin while helping to repair the damage. 

14. Facial Waters - Keep your face hydrated throughout the day with a fresh facial water. Remember to re-apply your sunscreen regularly though. 

15. All in one palette. - Especially loving the Estee Lauder Batnik Sun palette. A palette that contains nude and colourful shades is ideal for using when away. 

So are you guys going away? What products do you normally take with you?
