Travel-Friendly Beauty


  1. Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist Travel Size, USD20, +Add to Wishlist
    Rehydrating of utmost importance as the plane’s recycled air can strip away the moisture from your skin. This dewy skin mist from Tatcha has a silky texture made from Squalane, Red Algae and an anti-ageing complex for a quick boost of hydration anytime, anywhere.
  2. Mai Couture Highlighter Paper, USD18, +Add to Wishlist
    Prone to oily skin that gets clogged especially when you’re in a new environment? This game-changing, hypoallergenic highlighting paper boasts two important properties in one: 1) It gives a “lit-from-within” luminous glow sans the hassle of bringing a palette + brushes; and 2) Sebum removal to prevent clogged pores and buildup. It doesn’t get handier than this!
  3. SU:m37 Rose Cleansing Stick, KRW19,000, +Add to Wishlist
    Pop this stick in your handbag to lather away impurities without the trouble of refilling tiny jars with your everyday cleanser. With over 90% natural ingredients, it is free from artificial colours, parabens and synthetic preservatives — and is great for all skin types. All you have to do is twist it, swipe over damp skin, lather, and rinse!
  4. Glossier Moisturising Moon Mask, USD22, +Add to Wishlist
    Glossier’s bestselling mask is well-known for good reason. It has sweet almond oil, squalane and hyaluronic acid to plump skin with hydration as and when you need an extra dose of moisture. In case your skin gets ultra dehydrated in the cabin, smooth a thick layer over your face and rinse after 20 minutes.
  5. First Aid Beauty Detox Eye Roller, USD26, +Add to Wishlist
    We love it when product packaging caters to a fuss-free application, like this metal eye roller from First Aid Kit. Caffeine, witch hazel extracts, and sodium hyaluronate help to alleviate dark eye circles and brighten your eye area in a couple of minutes if you wake up from a long nap with puffy eyes.
  6. Acure Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes, USD6.7, +Add to Wishlist
    Cleansing wipes are another trouble-free option if you aren’t a fan of airplane lavatories. These all-natural biodegradable Argan Oil wipes are perfect to gently remove makeup, dirt, sweat, environmental toxins from your skin.
  7. Milk Hero Salve, USD20, +Add to Wishlist
    Nothing like a salve to solve all your dry skin problems while you’re traveling. This cult favourite is the ultimate multitasker made with jojoba oil, shea butter, and grapeseed oil that can be applied to your lips, face, and body — basically anywhere needing a serious dose of hydration.
  8. Lorac Pro to Go Eye Cheek Palette, USD38, +Add to Wishlist
    One palette is much easier to tote around than 3 different ones to get your makeup look down pat. Lorac’s travel-friendly palette is packed with six eyeshadows, two eyeshadow brushes, two blushes and a bronzer that you need to look glam on the go.
  9. Too Cool for School Maybe Baby Lip, EUR20, +Add to Wishlist
    This Korean product isn’t just your average lip balm — it works as a lip scrub and essence in one to plump your lips while hydrating it. After scrubbing away the dead skin cells, the lip essence component (with sweet almond oil and Cupuacu butter) leave a protective layer on your lips.
  10. Herbivore Botanicals Mini Facial Oil Set, USD49, +Add to Wishlist
    Whether you have blemish-prone skin that’s also dry or fatigued skin that needs a quick boost of nourishing, Herbivore Botanicals mini facial oil set has three products to save your skin, stat.
