Miniature Holiday Beauty Products

Bliss-Lemon Sage-travel-set-PurMinerals-Glow-Mineral-Powder-Iluminator-mini-set-LabelM-mini-travel-hair-products

I’m a big fan of leaving the usual suspects at home and chucking a set of mini products in the bag for holidays and weekends away.  Besides the obvious advantage of lighter luggage (more room for shopping?) I love the way using certain products on holiday creates an instant fragrant footprint, forever associated with a specific set of hopefully happy memories.  Ever used a shampoo and been instantly transported back somewhere?  That.

Here’s a few ideas to get you going…

Bliss Lemon & Sage Sink Side

Bliss Lemon & Sage Sink Side is a set of six travel sized best sellers, imbued with the freshest summery scent ever!  The set contains:

  • Supershine Shampoo
  • Conditioning Rinse
  • Fabulous Foaming Face Wash
  • Soapy Suds Body Wash & Bubbling Bath
  • Body Butter
  • Soap

I love that not only do the products come in a resealable plastic case, but each item is properly sealed, so no worries about leakage en route!  And did I mention how good they smell? 

Bliss Sink Side, £20.50 at Bliss or John Lewis Bliss also has a great offer of a free Summer Scents Bath & Body Duo (worth £35.90) when you spend £40 or more here! Just use code SUMMER13 at checkout (valid until 26 July 2013).

 

PurMinerals Glow All Year

PurMinerals Glow All Year is a great way to try some of the brand’s products, even if you aren’t heading to exotic climes.  This set includes:

  • Mineral Glow Bronzer
  • Glam Stick Illuminator
  • Pout Pluming Lip Gloss (a light, translucent gold)

I’ve included a swatch to show you the bronzer in particular.  I didn’t expect this to work on me in a million years, but actually it’s great for most skin tones as it’s pure brown - no red or orange undertones.  I’ve been using the full size of this product most days lately, applied with my Real Techniques Duo Fibre brush (review here).  Glam Stick Illuminator is a lovely pale slightly rose gold - again, I’m a big fan of this and come across very few highlighters that I get on with.   The gloss (not pictured) I’m less fussed on, as I like a gloss to add colour rather than just shine - and gold lips aren’t really my thing.

Label M Mini Airliner 

Label M Mini Airliner contains travel sizes of some of my favourites from this hair range (developed by Toni&Guy), which is impossible to go wrong with in my experience.  More generous than the usual travel sizes, these are 50-60ml each.  The kit is customisable to suit your hair’s needs - including 1 shampoo & 1 conditioner and a choice of any two ‘Create & Complete’ styling products.

In my kit…

  • Deep Cleansing Shampoo (removes excess oils & build up)
  • Moisturising Conditioner
  • Blow Out Spray (volume + heat/UV protection)
  • Shine Spray

Label M Mini Airliner: £12 at label.m concept salons worldwide, TONI&GUY and essensuals. You can also shop the range at CheapSmells (discounted) or LookFantastic (on 3 for 2)

 

My motto: be brave, leave the old faithfuls at home and have fun experimenting with miniature newness on holiday! (Sadly mine are over so I’m hoping you’ll do this on my behalf!)
