The Beauty Minis We Won't Travel Without

The Best Travel Sized Beauty Products | Space NK
It's that time of the year again, with long weekends and summer holidays in sight, we're getting our packing lists ready. 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 sunscreen 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 2024


Paula's Choice

Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, € 13,00

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, € 16,00

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.


Rare Beauty

Perfect Strokes Universal Volumizing Mascara, € 13,00

Best Travel-size Mascara
Selena Gomez always raves about her Perfect Strokes Mascara, it provides amazing length and volume to anyone's lashes. Now you can take it on-the-go and achieve a dramatic eye look wherever you go, without overpacking your makeup bag.



Skin Nova, € 15,00

Best Travel-size Makeup Multitasker
It's skincare and makeup in a bottle, this glowy primer is fabulous to use on its own or with makeup on top. It will give your skin a natural-looking glow while hydrating your skin with rosewater and glycerin. If you love that lit-from-within look, this is the product for you.



Glowscreen SPF 30, € 40,25

Best Travel-size Sunscreen For Face
We don’t go anywhere without wearing SPF, especially not on holiday. Supergoop! is making it easier to find the right sunscreen for your skin tone and your skin type. We've been loving Glowscreen, a dreamy makeup primer that also provides SPF 30, it's the product to wear on its own to protect and give the skin a lovely glow.



Afterglow Liquid Blush, € 36,00

Best Blusher for a Sunkissed Look
If you're looking for something that will make your makeup routine simple, a liquid blush is all you need. We love the NARS Afterglow line for the colour payoff and the glow it gives. All you need to do is apply a little bit on your cheeks and across your nose, and you've got your holiday makeup sorted.
