The Best Beauty Minis To Take Everywhere

The Best Travel Sized Beauty Products | Space NK
After two years of travel restrictions and staycations, long-haul flights and summer holidays are back on. Which means it’s time to work on your suitcase essentials. There’s an art of optimising precious suitcase space and travelling light doesn’t come as naturally to us anymore. Choosing which beauty products to take on holiday and which ones to risk leaving behind is a real dilemma.

Thankfully, we have an array of travel size beauty products to keep our routine in check, even when we’re not in the comfort of our bathroom. If you’re still trying to figure out what your beauty essentials for this summer are, hopefully this will help inspire you and streamline your packing.

Between SPF, makeup and haircare (and more for the beauty savvy), it’s hard to imagine not packing an entire suitcase solely for your beauty routine. But don’t worry, we’ve all been there, and we’ll help you figure out the art of packing light. Scroll down for the ultimate packing list of travel size beauty products.

The Summer Holiday Packing List


Dr. Dennis Gross

All-Physical Lightweight Wrinkle Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30, € 48,00

Best SPF for Face
Sunscreen is a daily non-negotiable skincare product, especially throughout the summer. This mineral, broad-spectrum formula works for all skin types and tones. Not only does Dr Dennis Gross’ All-Physical SPF 30 protect from sun damage but it also fights signs of ageing thanks to the expert blend of antioxidant. We carry this in our beach bag at all times when we’re on holiday.



Mini Loves Fresh Faves, € 38,00

Your Skincare Routine in One
Being away from our full-size products for over a week at a time won’t stop us from having a solid skincare routine. From cleanser to lip balm, this Fresh kit has your skincare routine covered, with five travel minis that still deliver the same amazing results.



CC Cream SPF25 Travel Size, € 20,50

The Ultimate Makeup Base
In the summer, we like to keep our makeup light but that doesn’t mean skipping it entirely. Erborian’s CC cream helps to correct any redness and discoloration without looking cakey or feeling heavy on your skin. This is one of our favourites for the warmer months when we’re not feeling foundation.


Rare Beauty

Perfect Strokes Universal Volumizing Mascara, € 13,00

Best Waterproof Mascara
This ultra-waterproof mascara has been making a lot of noise lately, and we can confirm it’s as good as they say. The formula works for everyone, no matter how your natural lashes are and what look you want to achieve. It will stay on all day (and all night), no need to worry about smudging and sweat getting in the way of a beautiful lash look.


Rare Beauty

Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, € 22,00

Best Liquid Blush
We had to mention this cult-favourite product as one of our essentials for the summer. The lightweight formula blends seamlessly into your skin, it’s the perfect product to wear day or night. Joy and Grateful are our go-to shades for the summer for a flattering hint of coral. Plus, this liquid blush doubles as an eyeshadow and you can dab some on your lips in case you forget to pack your lipstick too.


Jo Loves

Pomelo a Fragrance Paintbrush Gel, € 50,00

Best Mini Perfume
A fresh, uplifting scent is the finishing touch to every beauty routine and will give you that extra boost of confidence. We love Jo Love’s Pomelo scent for the summer, and the brush applicator makes it so easy to apply your perfume on your neck, décolleté and wrists without wasting a drop.


Sol de Janeiro

Rio Deo Aluminium-Free Deodorant, € 14,00

Best Mini Deodorant
This aluminium-free is an absolute summer essential. Not only does it help eliminate odour, but it also smoothes and hydrates your skin. Bonus point, it doesn’t count in your allowance of liquid product because it is completely solid, so you have more space for other beauty minis.


JVN Hair

Complete Hydration Kit, € 18,00

Travel Size Hair Products
Holiday hair, DO care! We tend to neglect our haircare routine when going on holiday, most of the time because we don’t have the right products, but this can end now. JVN’s travel kit has been made to keep your hair luscious and hydrated, especially after a day in the sun. Finish your look off with the Complete Air Dry Creamfor gorgeous, beachy waves.


Living Proof

PhD Dry Shampoo, € 11,00

Best Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is a travel essential and allows you to space out wash days, especially when you’ve got a busy schedule and places to go. This formula by Living Proof is one of our all-time favourites to absorb out excess oil with only a few spritzes. Pro-tip: use dry shampoo before going to bed and you’ll wake up with fresh, clean-looking hair.


Space NK

Medium Travel Bag, € 30,00

The Ultimate Carrier
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.
