The Beauty Travel Kits To Bring On Any Trip

Luggage space: something we always run out of. That’s why you don’t want to be bringing your entire shelf of beauty products with you on your trip because well, that’s just not very feasible. That’s where travel-sized products come into the picture. These mini essentials allow you to pack light and save tons of luggage space, all while giving your skin the love and care it needs.





With seven travel-sized essentials, the Departure travel kit is one that is great for frequent flyers. It contains a range of products for impeccable upkeep in transit, like the hand wash for when water is unavailable and the mouthwash and toothpaste for oral hygiene. There are also products to moisturise your hands, hydrate your skin and nourish your lips. The Arrival travel kit (previously known as the Jet Set Travel Kit) includes hair and body products for a gentle and aromatic cleanse. Travel at ease with these two kits in hand.

Arrival, $50.
Departure, $80.
Available online and at all Aesop stores.





Keep your skin healthy throughout your trip with these travel-sized skincare products — a serum, balm, day cream and night cream. Protect your skin from free radical damage with antioxidants like boysenberry, blackcurrant and kiwifruit and the Vinanza® Grape present in the serum. The balm on the other hand, helps solve problems like dry and cracked skin, sunburn and rashes, which you may experience when you’re travelling to a tropical country. Hydrate your skin with the day cream and nourish it with the night cream which contains avocado oil to boost collagen in your skin.
