6 Mini Beauty Products We Won't Travel Without

The Best Travel Sized Beauty Products | Space NK
From packing restrictions to wanting to be a minimal packer, travel-size beauty products are a true saviour to make sure we are following our beauty routine even when we’re away from home. Between choosing the right SPF to the right waterproof makeup, it can be hard (especially when you love beauty) to not pack an entire suitcase full of beauty minis, “just in case” you might need them.

Whether you’re packing for a staycation or a long-haul getaway, we feel like we’ve mastered the art of packing beauty minis. We know how to keep it to a minimum and streamline your beauty routine. Read on for the essential mini beauty products we’ll be travelling with this summer.

The Mini Beauty Products You Need in 2023


Paula's Choice

Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, £ 11,00

Best Travel-size Blemish Buster
Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant is essential in our skincare routine all year round to help ease any congestion and keep blackheads at bay. If you want to get your glow on this summer, this cult liquid exfoliant is a must-have as it helps to prevent blemishes and bumps under the skin. We recommend using it in the evening after cleansing and before your serums and creams. We love that it comes in 30ml to carry everywhere we go.


Malin + Goetz

Eucalyptus Deodorant, £ 12,00

Best Travel-size Deodorant
We love Malin + Goetz’s natural deodorant for several reasons. Firstly, it genuinely does leave you feeling fresh and dry, even when the mercury rises. The formula helps to get rid of bacteria that could cause any unwanted odour. Secondly, the eucalyptus scent smells divine and worlds apart from the usual, run-of-the-mill deodorant. Thirdly, if you’re flying, this deodorant stick doesn’t count towards your liquid allowance and the mini size doesn’t take up lots of space in your hand luggage.


Sol de Janeiro

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, £ 21,00

Best Travel-size Body Lotion
As summer approaches more of us tend to bare a bit more skin, which makes any dry patches all the more noticeable. Fear not, the iconic Bum Bum Cream is available in miniature form and is here to save the day – whether you’re home or away. The dreamy texture of this cream smoothes and soothes in seconds, while the signature scent can double up as a body perfume when you apply it on your wrists and neck.



Unlocked™ Instant Extensions Mascara Travel Size, £ 15,00

Best Travel-size Mascara
Does anyone go on holiday without a mascara? Even if we’re packing the absolute minimum, Hourglass Unlocked Instant Extensions Mascara Travel-size always makes the cut. This smudge-proof, tubing mascara stays in place on the hottest of days and yet is still a breeze to remove in the evenings. We wouldn’t be without it.


Charlotte Tilbury

Pillow Talk Matte Beauty Blush Wand, £ 30,00

Best Travel-size Makeup Multitasker
When space is limited, the savvy packer will reach for a liquid blusher. The Charlotte Tilbury Matte Blush Wand gets our vote for summer 2023 as the colour payoff is exceptional, the shade selection is super flattering, and the formula stays in place without creasing or fading. We use it on our cheeks, lips and eyes when we don’t have our full makeup bag with us.


Hello Sunday

The Everyday One - Face Moisturiser: SPF 50, £ 16,00

Best Travel-size Sunscreen For Face
We don’t go anywhere without wearing SPF, especially not on holiday. Hello Sunday The Everyday One is a moisturiser and sunscreen in one with factor 50 protection and vitamin C to brighten your skin and support the sun protection. If you don’t want to pack a separate day moisturiser, this is a great alternative.


Space NK

Medium Travel Bag, £ 26,00

Best Travel Beauty Bag
Because you need something to carry your beauty haul; this travel makeup bag is the perfect size to fit all your travel minis and more. We love that it’s transparent and you’re able to see all your products and spot what you’re looking for without even opening it.
