There are a few long weekends ahead of us, so it’s the ideal moment to go on a citytrip for a couple of days. Sometimes airlines don’t charge extra for a suitcase. However, on most occasions only taking hand luggage is the cheapest and most practical option. Summer clothes aren’t an issue, they’ll fit into your suitcase easily. But some of your favorite beauty products might take up more space than you’d like. Luckily most brands launched smaller versions of their bestselling products. Here’s a list of our travel size essentials…

Dior Lacquer Plump & Miss Dior Perle de Parfum

Two things we can’t miss when being abroad is our favorite lipstick and perfume. Even when you look at your worst, the right color on your lips will help you through the day. Also, when you’ve just spent a few hours on a plane, that beloved scent of yours might come in handy. Our current favorites are the Dior Addict Lacquer Plump in color Fever (676) and Miss Dior Perle de Parfum. The last one is a handy 20 ml bottle with a new roller-pearl, perfect to subtly refresh your scent.

Korres Cranberry Instant Lifting Mask

Changing temperatures, a lack of sleep and extra doses of sun aren’t always having a good effect on your skin. Using the right facial mask therefore is essential. Korres has 18 ml versions of their bestselling masks available on the webshop. The ideal product to add to your hand luggage.

Clinique Moisture Surge

Because you just can’t hydrate enough, the Moisture Surge from Clinique is an important present in our list. This refreshing gel cream is a must when your face is all parched. It consists of aloe vera water and it’s paraben, perfume and oil – free. You can buy it in three sizes: 15 ml, 30 ml or 50 ml.

Bobbi Brown bronzer

This actually isn’t a liquid but we can’t live without the Bobbi Brown bronzer on holiday. Our opinion: it’s just the best and most easy-to-use product on the market. When you look a bit tired after a long flight or day in the city, just a bit of this wonder powder on your face and you’re ready to go.

Aesop Rind Concentrate Body Balm

Traveling, most definitely by plane, can make your skin feel dry and swollen. That’s why it’s very important to hydrate. Besides drinking loads of water, we always use the Aesop Rind Concentrate body balm. A citrus-based cream with oils of orange, lemon rind and nut oil that softens and hydrates your skin. It’s part of the Jet Set travel kit that you can find on the Aesop website.

Caudalie Vinosource and shower gel

Of course it’s important that you can also wash yourself so we saved the most essential products for last. Caudalie has several travel kits in its offer that contain all the products you need on a citytrip. There’s the French Beauty Secrets set, the actual travel kit and a set with the brand’s cult products.
