7 travel beauty essentials

The holiday season is here at last, and while we can’t wait to escape and relax, we’re also thinking about what travel beauty essentials to pack.

Whether you’re jetting off on a getaway or doing a staycation, it’s important to stock your travel bag with quick fixes to make your holiday easier. That’s why we’re rounding up our fave travel companions.

Don’t forget to pack these must-have travel beauty essentials for your next holiday.

Hand sanitiser

Nobody wants to get sick on holiday, so tucking a small bottle of hand sanitiser into your purse or bag is an easy way to avoid germs. Planes are a breeding ground for bacteria so having some on hand is always a plus. Trust us – your immune system will thank you!


This is an obvious one, but SPF really is the most important travel beauty essential. We’ve mentioned including it in your daily routine for a reason: it works, it protects you and it prevents exposure to the sun.

From balms and sprays to the classic cream, SPF comes in all different sizes, shapes and formulas. Just avoid sun creams that have toxic chemicals, and find the one that works for you and your skin type.  

Absolute Collagen

Our handy travel-sized sachets make looking after your skin easier than ever on the go. A daily dose of Absolute Collagen will keep your skin hydrated and smooth. This not only helps to keep your skin healthy during your time away, it can also help to create an even tan and prevent sunburn. One #Absoluter has even said that she doesn’t peel anymore after sunbathing, keeping that holiday glow lasting for longer.

Sleep mask

Anyone who has ever tried to sleep on a plane will understand the importance of a sleep mask. They’re the perfect way to block out the world to get some much-needed shut-eye and proven to help with jet lag and adjusting to different time zones. That’s just one of the reasons why we provide our subscribers with sleep masks!

Lip balm

Dry, chapped lips are an annoyance that nobody wants while on vacation. Aeroplanes are known to dehydrate your skin, and that includes your lips too. Moisturise and protect that pout with a good lip balm, preferably one that has SPF included.


A tinted moisturiser can do wonders for dull skin. Most BB creams have multiple benefits, whether it’s SPF protection, doubling as a lotion or adding subtle colour and glow. When you’re travelling, a two-in-one moisturiser cuts back on the number of products you have to lug around with you, so opt for a lightweight moisturiser with SPF and your dry skin will thank you!

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is a game changer for travel. Whether you’re backpacking around Europe, relaxing on the beach or heading to a festival, this travel beauty essential volumises, cleans and freshens up your hair. It’s a great alternative to washing your hair if you’re somewhere with limited access to showers or if it simply takes a long time for your hair to dry. Combine a spritz of dry shampoo with a daily dose of Absolute Collagen (which is trichologist approved to help hair!) and your tresses will look salon ready even after a long-haul flight.
