While we relish the chance to see every corner of this amazing world, travelling can take its toll on our bodies. Skin-drying cabin air, that annoying plane smell and those pesky 100ml restrictions can be a pain, so we’ve rounded up our favourite travel-friendly products to help you look and feel fabulous when you land.

RMK Cleansing Balm
Instead of resorting to wipes, I pack a sample-sized tub of RMK Cleansing Balm. It gently and effectively melts off my make-up easily and feels nourishing – at home I use it with a hot cloth, but on flights I use a few cotton wool pads for removal.
COOLA Mineral Face SPF 20 Lotion
I’m really pale so I want to make sure I’m armed for the sun the second I step off the plane. I love the mineral formula – it doesn’t make my normal-to-oily skin greasy and stays put all day!
Révérence de Bastien VolupTHÉ
After many trips to my favourite city – besides London! – NYC, I’ve found this softly scented hand cream keeps my hands hydrated and also gets rid of that awful plane smell, without being overpowering to other passengers.
Rachel, PR Manager
I love a coconut scent – particularly on holiday – and this fun yet practical lip balm is my must-have for both the plane and the beach.
Dead Sea Spa Magik Silky Smooth Body Lotion
Packed with uber-hydrating ingredients such as glycerin, lactic acid and potassium, this sorts out my dry skin in a flash. Plus, the soothing formula doubles up a great after-sun!
VitaBella Hand Cream
Healing rose hip oil, soothing aloe vera and super-hydrating hyaluronic acid are just a few ingredients packed into this gentle, non-greasy formula. It works wonders on cracked skin!
Grace, Editorial Executive
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
On a recent trip to Sicily, I was glad I packed a mini bottle of this tonic. A spritz of this hydrating mist on the plane reawakened my skin and refreshed it once out in the Mediterranean sun.
Yu-be Moisturizing Cream
I like to use the flight time to my advantage by pampering sometimes neglected areas. Yu-be’s ultra-hydrating balm sinks into cuticles, dry elbows and chapped lips for some nourishing TLC.
Nougat® London Nurturing Hand Cream Collection
Anyone who knows me is aware of my obsession of anything fig, so the Fig & Pink Cedar scented cream from this four-piece collection is right up my street. Not only does it smell heavenly, it’s packed with hydrating cocoa butter, macadamia oil and comforting vitamin E.
