Hands up if you're a beauty junkie who endures the pain of decanting everything into minis whenever you travel. After all, how can you jet set without ensuring you've got your kit to make you look hot AF? At the same time, lugging around an oversized makeup bag or two really eats into the limited space of your suitcase (where will your shopping go?). The solution: multi-purpose products.
With an uptick in makeup and skincare formulas that work multiple usages and benefits, streamlining your stash for travelling is no longer as herculean a task. The trick is to select the right products that'll give you that extra, extra mileage.
Crème Simon Crème Universelle, $68
This 157-year-old product is the matriarch of all moisturisers. As a beauty cream, it heals and restores moisture to dry and sensitive skin for both the face and body. Its nourishing texture is fab for skin exposed to extreme weather, and it also plumps up fine lines and soothes redness. And as a pharmaceutical treatment, it helps to relieve practically everything from eczema, insect bites, and sunburn to healing dry elbows, cracked heels, and chapped lips.
When travelling, we’re all for skincare and makeup bits that lets you bring a little, but do a lot. Other multi-purpose must-haves in our kit: Beautyblender Re-Dew, Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette V2, Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer and Eve Lom Radiance Face Oil.
