Best beauty travel brands: the ultimate guide

Best beauty travel brands: the ultimate guide

Travel beauty is a simple concept, yet it represents a unique packing challenge. You need a careful edit of your everyday essentials, plus some glam options and (it goes without saying) don’t forget the sunscreen. There are restrictions on the types and quantities of products you can bring aboard an aircraft. Heaven forbid you become that person who has their uber-expensive serum or beloved body lotion confiscated at security… no one wants to say that kind of tearful goodbye at the gate! We think it’s best to always be prepared!

But first, a word from Qantas: “When departing from any Australian international airport, all liquids, aerosols and gels must be screened… and are required to be 100mls or less.” For the scouts amongst us, you can read more about this here.

So we’ve done the hard work for you and lined up the best in travel beauty from a trusted department store, an online skincare destination and two of the best beauty queens in the business. You’re welcome.

Adore Beauty

Adore Beauty believes that travel shouldn’t impact your beauty regime, and we couldn’t agree more! Australia’s longest-running online beauty store has a huge range of travel-size products from the high-end to the affordable, from the niche to the salon professional – which means you can mix and match. Think an Aesop Departure Travel Kit, Clinique minis or something from the European old-school Dr Hauschka.

Charlotte Tilbury

Especially curated for globetrotting beauties, most of Charlotte Tilbury’s best-selling essentials are sized down so that you never have to be without them. Those who know of and use the line are true devotees and will be sure to snap up the Magic Cream and cult Wonderglow face primer (to which this author can personally attest, it is properly amazing). Plus, for those who are all about efficiency, there are travel kits and all-in-one palettes.

David Jones

David Jones are really en pointe when it comes to travel skincare and beauty, with an entire area of their site dedicated to the idea. There’s global names like La Prairie and Gucci, a local offering from Kora Organics and everything in between. And if you need extra inspiration, we highly recommend checking out their recent JONES Beauty Awards. From cult classics to new releases consider this your definitive list of best-in-class beauty – many of which are travel sized, naturally!

Bobbi Brown

Nineties sensation Bobbi Brown is now truly a prestige beauty brand that empowers women to enhance their individual beauty. Their range of travel-ready products lets you take that girl power on the road – the Primer Plus Mattifier, Creamy Concealer Kit and the limited-edition Mini Glowset are firm favourites in any travel arsenal. We particularly love the Bobbi Brown online tutorials where you can learn how to do your own makeup or recreate the latest looks!
