Planning a weekend away?
Whether it be a romantic getaway, a fun family trip, or even an overnight glamping affair, when you’re going on a road trip there are some essentials you need to pack. Spotify playlist: optional.
These 8 quick, simple and multi-functional essentials will have you looking and feeling your best – even when you’re miles away from your bathroom – so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your trip.
SK-II Mid Night Miracle Essence
Whether you’re escaping to shred some snow or blissing out on a secluded tropical beach, keeping fresh can improve your spirits and assure your fellow traveler (and the locals) won’t be scared off. Featuring skin-cooling technology, and a shine-free finish (winning), SK-II Mid Night Miracle Essence is the perfect pick-me-up on the go. Instant skin rejuvenation occurs by way of this cooling menthol-infused spray, which combines high levels of Pitera. It’s so good, you’ll buy one and go back for two. Or three. Or four.
Grown Alchemist Hydra-Hand Sanitiser
Travelling can see you exposed to all sorts of new experiences: Instagram-worthy sunsets, life-changing meals and becoming overly-friendly with germs (yes, bad bacteria). To keep your mits clean, try your hand (#sorrynotsorry) at this natural hand sanitiser. Formulated with hyaluronic acid and antioxidants, this handbag must-have will simultaneously clean and protect your hands from premature ageing. Genius.
Sea 2 Skin Active Hydration Mask
Rather than weighing down your bags with heavy oversized beauty products (yep, we’ve all done that!), instead opt for lightweight, travel-friendly options like this hydrating face mask. Encased in this handy pouch is a lightweight leave-on lotion, packed full of the good stuff; rich sea botanicals, marine collagen, hyaluronic acid and rosehip oil to deeply nourish your complexion and leave it with a radiant glow.
Uriage Thermal Micellar Water Wipes
At less than $10 a pop, these face cleansing wipes, which harness the same genius technology as micellar cleansing water, are a must-have for your luggage, car or gym bag. Utilising the power of micelles to draw makeup and impurities away from the skin, your skin will be left feeling clean, hydrated and fresh. Let’s be honest – wipes are good for anything.
Ayu Souq Perfume Oil
A luminous floral – mixing sacred oils to a form a heady and addictive scent – this perfume oil is petite and perfect for the road. It’s formulated with a base of organic jojoba and traditional Ayurvedic herbs to keep you grounded, which is especially handy during moments of high stress such as getting lost with directions. It’s important to note: A little goes a long way but when you wear this, expect the compliments to flood in from friends and strangers alike. We bet our lives on it.
Mukti Botanique Shampoo & Conditioner
Leave your bulk shampoo and conditioner at home and try this newly formulated teeny tiny shampoo and conditioner instead. This duo will comfortably give you at least five washes whilst restoring shine, body & bounce. Bloody brilliant.
TONI &GUY Cleanse Dry Shampoo
Newsflash: Dirt, dust and good ol’ air conditioning pumping through air planes and car vents can have a dire effect on your hair. Keep ’em clean with a dry shampoo on hand. We like this one because it doesn’t leave a powdery residue.
