Have your say

Whether it’s a mini-break or two-week vacation, it’s all too easy to let toiletries take over half your case and risk starting your holiday in the airport excess baggage queue.

They say all good things come in small packages, yet when it comes to beauty products we tend to go overboard on stuffing suitcases.

Whether it’s a mini-break or two-week vacation, it’s all too easy to let toiletries take over half your case and risk starting your holiday in the airport excess baggage queue.

Travel kits are the fast-track way to stay restrained but still maintain your regime in sunnier climes.

Kathy Phillips, creative director of This Works, summarises the essence of travel beauty: “Minis should be an invaluable group of portable, unbreakable, un-spillable, multi-tasking essentials that fit in your handbag and sail through security.”
