When it comes to packing for your long bank holiday weekend away, it can be tough to find space in your hand luggage for everything you need. And God knows we’re not paying extra for a proper suitcase!

This is where a Love Me Beauty subscription can come in veeeery handy indeed. Offering luxe sized products for you to trail, we’re your bank holiday BFF, here to help you pack that extra pair of shoes you probably don’t need. Here’s how we’re getting ready for our spring break with #InFullBloom…

Clean hair

There’s nothing worse than cutting your beach time short to wash your hair. We Brits aren’t fortunate enough to enjoy much sun and we want to make the most of it. The solution? Living Proof’s Prime Style Extender Cream or Spray. Designed to repel dirt and oil, it preps hair for 2 times longer wear, meaning you need to wash it much less. Ideal for ensuring you enjoy another hour by the pool, our luxe sized products not only save on valuable packing space, but are small enough to avoid being frisked by a customs officer too!

Cleanse and moisturise

Put down your full-size cleanser and moisturiser in favour of Amie’s cute travel duo. Combining their two hero products – award-winning Purifying Facial Wash and oil-controlling Matte Finish Moisturiser – it’s the perfect pair to save space when on your travels. Not only that, but it’s super gentle for even the most sensitive skin, with skin-friendly ingredients and natural extracts. Lovely!


Why settle for an average suncream when you can have Ultrasun’s superior protection with a little extra something? Take their gorgeous Glimmer product – it boasts SPF20 UVA and UVB protection, plus a gorgeous shimmery finish. Highlight skin with a slick of Glimmer for an instant gorgeous glow! What else? Well, like all the other products in our Bank Holiday Beauty list, it’s a luxe size that saves on space and can be packed in hand luggage with no airport trouble at all.

#Repost @theorganiclabel ・・・ Ibiza ….☀️🌴 👙….I tried different brands, but the shimmering sun protection with #antioxidants of @ultrasunuk is my fav. so far!!! In the beginning of my holiday I always used SPF 50!! The sun was so strong! Its tiny, golden “glimmers” raise protection by deflecting the sun’s rays and add an attractive golden glow to the surface of your skin. For the first time I used such a high protection & actually didn't look like a ghost 👻!! It is free from oils, emulsifiers and perfume reducing the risk of allergy and making it especially suitable for sensitive skins. it is non-greasy, water-resistant and easy to use! #nikkibeachibiza #Ibiza #skincare #beauty #glimmer #sexylegs #bblogger #suncare #sun #beach #pool #cocktails #instagood #instabeauty #reviews #ultrasun #summer #bikinitime #photooftheday

We can hazard a guess at just how many makeup brushes you have, as a dedicated buyer of makeup. But when it comes to travelling light, it’s no use trying to squash all 28 (essential) brushes into your suitcase! This is where EcoTools come in. Reminding you of the true meaning of ‘essential’, their Six Piece Starter Set includes a concealer brush, eye shading, angled liner, blush brush, brow groomer and nifty case. Ideal for travel, it’ll also help you give your skin a break from heavy makeup for a beautiful tanned glow!

Start the week fresh! 😊✨💗 #BrushCleaningDay

More tools

The only thing missing from the above set? Something to apply your base. Well, we reckon EcoTools have cracked that too! Take their new Perfecting Blender Duo, designed to apply foundation and concealer – they’re the top tools needed to help you achieve a flawless, natural finish. Dampen the large dark green blender to apply foundation with a sheer finish, before using a dry lime green blender to cover imperfections with concealer. Why are they the one for bank holiday travels? Well, they’re spongy, so will squish down when you’re short of space!
