Have you planned out your end-of-year holiday yet? Will it be to the beach, mountains or will you be exploring a new city this time? We’ve helped you sort out all your #OOTDs for the trip, but saved the best for last. It’s skincare, haircare and makeup of course! We all know how important it is to pack the right products — and in travel-friendly sizes too!

Take a look at our essential picks for self-care for your next holiday…



This is the most important product for you to carry on holiday no matter where you’re going. Save your skin from sun damage with this sunscreen powder. Not only is it easy to apply, but extremely travel-friendly too! You can reapply it throughout the day with ease and you don’t have to worry about it spilling in your bag. The best part? It’s completely oil-free.

Bodycare Minis Bundle

Travel-sized and so functional — this minis bundle is a great option for you to travel with. It has a body scrub, body oil, body lotion, shower gel and foot cream, all of which are essentials. Not only do they smell great, but are great for your skin too. They come in small bottles and tubes, which make it easy to carry.

Tinted lip balm

Who doesn’t love a good tinted lip balm? On holiday, they become that much better because they give your lips the nourishment it needs, along with a pop of colour. These lip balms also have SPF 30 that will protect your lips from the sun when you’re out exploring. Throw them in your purse and wear them all day long.

Micellar water

If you’re going to be wearing makeup, it's essential you carry micellar water too. Don’t ever go to bed wearing makeup. This Squalane Biphase Micellar Water removes makeup gently while cleansing and hydrating your skin. It has plant-derived squalane that nourishes skin while effectively removing makeup. What’s not to love?

Mini lipsticks

If you love mixing your lip colours and wearing different shades to make your outfits, these mini lipsticks will win you heart. They come in 16 shades and have the goodness of pacifying herbs such as Indian Kudzu, Shatavari and Bhrami to name a few, and give an intense colour payoff as well.

Dry shampoo

If you’re in a rush and don’t quite have the time for a wash day, worry not! This Plantain, Bamboo and Charcoal dry shampoo will fix your greasy hair in minutes. It absorbs dirt and excess greasiness, leaving your hair feeling fresh and scalp nourished. Don’t forget to brush your hair after applying it!

Hand cream

There are very few things in the world that give as much pleasure as a good hand cream, especially if your skin is prone to dryness. These hand malais are made from fresh milk and are glycerin free. They have the goodness of pure shea, multiple cold-pressed oils, fruits and flowers, which nourish and keep your hands and nails hydrated.
