All The Small Things: The Travel Beauty Bits Coming With Me On My Next Trip

Inspired by this photo on Emma's Instgram feed, I thought that I would share some of the dinky little travel sized products and multi-tasking heroes, such as the Cowshed Wonder Balm* and Coola Daydream Mineral Primer, that I will be taking with me on holiday this month. If you want to follow me along on my travels be sure to follow me on Instagram where I'm going to posting as often as I can and even trying to vlog a little on Insta Stories.

But before I actually set off on my travels, let's see exactly what I'm bringing with me in my suitcase this time.

biosilk silk therapy travel set

Since I'm not constrained to travelling hand luggage only this time, like I did on my last trip, I thought that I would bring a few new products to put to the test in the warmer weather. Each of these bottles is well within the 100ml or under carry on restrictions if you did want to take them in your hand luggage. I've heard a lot of good things about Biosilk so I'm excited to try these Silk Therapy products, particularly the leave-in conditioner.

I tend to air dry my hair when I'm on holiday so we will see how these products perform. Be sure to follow me on either Instagram or Twitter as I will be updating you on all things holiday related on there. You can pick up this fab Silk Therapy travel set ut from Look Fantastic here in the UK.

When you're travelling somewhere as hot and humid as Florida, even the thought of applying makeup can be somewhat off-putting, often making me sweat just thinking about it but I wanted to bring a handful of products with me to have me covered no matter the occasion.

If you read my Travel Sized Beauty To Take On Your Next Trip blog post, where I packed for an overnight stay, you might remember me raving about the Zoeva Voyager collection, so of course I simply had to bring the perfect everyday palette and travel makeup brushes with me on this trip. And talking of tools, I picked up a little Beautyblender set a while back which includes a mini of the cleanser along with the iconic pink sponge. I may have to invest in the Blender Defender whilst I'm at Sephora or Ulta.

Benefit really nail the mini version market when it comes to their makeup! I opted for the trio of Benefit tints, which are exclusive to Escentual in this set, along with a mini of their Airbrush Concealer. I also couldn't go anywhere without my trusty IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream in tiny form or a good waterproof mascara. I'm going to be trialling this one by Eyeko whilst at the pool and on all the water rides. And say hello to the most adorable travel size mini in the form of Urban Decay's life-changing All Nighter Setting Spray.

I'm one of those people who instantly remembers a special time in their life after smelling a certain perfume or fragrance so I go out of my way to take a new perfume or Bath & Body Works scented Hand-Bac with me on each and every holiday. Then as soon as you spray that perfume or clean your hands on the go, you're immediately transported back to that place and time.

On this trip I'm going to be taking a few different options thanks to the Clean Layering Collection*. If you haven't yet discovered any of Clean's exquisite scents, this is a great way to do so plus having the option to layer them and create your own signature fragrance is certainly an added bonus. Plus, look how cute the little bottles are!

Even though I knew that I had the different options from Clean I couldn't resist this handy little Missguided Babe Power travel size set* from Notino. It comes with two 15ml vials of the brilliant Babe Power fragrance and a gorgeous rose gold/copper atomiser, making it ideal for popping into your holiday handbag.

I already briefly mentioned the multi purpose nature of both the Cowshed Wonder Balm and the Coola Daydream Primer above but I love taking products that save me taking other additional products away with me, especially when I plan on using every bit of available space on the way home for fitting in what I've bought on my trip. The Coola Daydream Primer is a primer, SPF and blurring base in one, whilst the Wonder Balm from Cowshed can be used on your body, face and hair and is just a great product to have to hand in the heat. It can also be used to remove makeup in a pinch too.

So there's what's coming with me on my trip to the States.

Do you seem to hoard little travel sizes and samples from beauty boxes like I do? Have you tried any of the products in today's post? If so, what do you think of them? And do you have any trips, holidays or nights away planned in the next year?
