What to pack when travelling

I'm one of those people (or is it just me?) who stresses more about toiletries than anything else when it comes to packing for a trip. I obsess over my list, make up different scenarios (possibilities of breaking out, or my skin feeling super dry), add and remove products of the list but ended up with a longer list... every single time.

So, I just give in and carry as many products that I need (or may possibly need) but always in mini size. Other than the usual cleanser, toner, moisturizer etc, these are my essentials. Let's leave makeup for another post.


My must-haves are Oribe Apres Beach and Dry Texturizing spray. I will be lost without these.

As a treat, I hoard samples of high end haircare and bodycare to be used on trips like Oribe or Diptyque.

I love the The Laundress range, and I always ensure not to run of of Fabric Fresh and Crease Release.

I never travel without sunscreen, and this new Sunbrella sunscreen by Mecca Cosmetica is so easy, just spray some on the palm of the hands and pat onto the face, or just spray on areas of the body and rub in.

Multi-purpose balm like Glossier BalmDotCom is essential, for lips and cuticles.

& Other Stories does amazing mini hand creams, I think a delicious smelling hand cream makes you want to reapply thus moisturising your mitts even more.

Marvis, possibly the best looking toothpaste is just a joy to bring along.
