If you’re anything like us, your bathroom cupboards are chockfull with beauty products and your make-up bag is more of a make-up crate - #IDidNotWakeUpLikeThis. So when it comes to travel, packing a toiletry bag is tricky business. Either chuck it all in and take up half of the suitcase, or forget everything.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. With a little careful planning, and six key products, you can be out the door in no time. Best of all, these products are travel sized. Get ready to grab and go.

1. Elizabeth Arden 8-hour cream
A cult favourite that’s going nowhere, Elizabeth Arden’s 8-hour cream. Although it’s main use is clear – hydrating skin for up to eight hours, this is no one trick pony. Use it to calm chapped lips, moisturise hands, perfect your cuticles, or even to shape wayward brows.

2. Sephora Express Cleansing Wipes - Mini
Wet wipes are a travel essential. Freshen up with Sephora’s cleansing wipes, which remove make-up, strip off oily residue and tone the skin.

3. Estee Lauder CC cream
In-flight air con strips the skin of its natural oils, so we’re all for travelling natural. But if you need a little help before strutting through arrivals like a celebrity jet setter, freshen up with this CC cream. The formula will smooth and conceal imperfections, while giving a dewy finish.

4. Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders Mini Collection
Your skincare routine doesn’t have to suffer because you’re strapped for space. Ole Henriksen does a fantastic mini collection of 3 Little Wonders. The collagen boosting serum, brightening moisturiser and invigorating night gel will keep your pores small and your wrinkles smaller.
