If you’re not lucky enough to have received a Love Me Beauty bag before, you’ll be excited to find out that every order comes in a bespoke beauty bag; perfect for taking on holiday, to the gym or in your handbag for work. Whether you’re flying with hand luggage and are limited to 100ml, or are looking for portable versions of your favourite beauty items, we’ve got you covered!

It can be daunting trying to work out which beauty products to leave behind when you have so many favourites, but let us show you how to maximise the space in your suitcase using multi-tasking products. Remember, the fewer toiletries you take, the more room you’ll have for that extra pair of sandals you bought with the beach in mind…

  1. Fragrance

Whether you’re pre-, mid-, or post- travel, there’s nothing like a quick spritz of your favourite fragrance to lift your mood. If you’re anything like us, you’ll have an fragrance wardrobe to take you from day to night, summer to winter, so which do you go for? For us, it’s all about light, uplifting scents that will instantly revive and awaken groggy heads and heavy limbs. Vitalité from Valeur Absolue has been this summer’s go-to, with the welcome addition of peridot stones to rejuvenate and bring good luck.

  1. Cleanse & Tone

Pixi Glow Tonic. Toning is a step that shouldn’t be forgotton, even if you are away. Luckily we have a mini of Pixi’s famous glow tonic in The Boutique. This isn’t just any old toner! Enriched with glycolic acid, applying this morning and/or evening after cleansing will keep your skin glowing even if you haven’t been getting much sleep. If you’re in the sun, limit usage to evenings and be militant with your SPF application.



  1. Moisturiser

For a balancing face cream to withstand hot climates, reach for the Caudalie Mattifying Fluid. If your skin is in need of some serious TLC, Argentum Apothecary La Potion Infinie will revive moisture-starved skin in an instant, holding over 10,000 times its weight in water.




  1. Nail polish

OPI nail polishes are some of the most long-wearing out there. We’ll be packing Strawberry Margarita for a pop of colour that not only enhances our tan but will also stay chip-free till our flight home.

  1. Hair

Avoid humidity humiliation with Percy & Reed’s Wonderbalm. Apply a small amount through towel dried hair, leave to air dry and behold the most glossy, beach waves you’ve ever had!
