City Break Beauty Essentials
TOP TIP – if you’re going away for a couple of nights start collecting the trial sachets that you sometimes get in magazines, they take up no space at all in your hand luggage! I also packed a travel sized dry shampoo just to refresh my hair between washes. I tried out COLAB dry shampoo for the first time and it literally smells amazing I’m definitely going to buy a bigger version.
Sun Cream & Aftersun
I would always recommend bringing sun cream and aftersun away with you. We had rain one day then it was so hot the next day I actually burned because I forgot to put on sun cream! For Lake Como I used Nivea Sun Protect and Bronze and Ambre Solaire After Sun Hydrating Tan Maintainer. There are travel sized bottles you can buy but I would recommend buying full sizes and then transferring what you need into…
Save money and buy reusable travel bottles rather than travel mini’s. Superdrug and Boots have a really good selection especially when you’re limited to 100ml, I use squeezy bottles for shower gels and face wash and twist open tubs for creams.
So this is where I usually struggle as there is so much makeup I want to bring. For Lake Como I reused my empty Mineral Veil Primer bottle and put in my new Laura Mercier Blemish Less primer. You can buy other travel sized makeup like mascara and lipgloss but I had enough space to pack my full size versions.
