Your handbag might be full of everything but the kitchen sink but when travelling you don’t exactly have that luxury.
While it can be tempting to chuck in lots of items (Just in case! you tell yourself) you’ll only end up a) having to sit on your suitcase everytime you want to close it, b) making secret prayers at every airport that you’re not over the weight limit and c) using exactly two per cent of them.
To help you travel light – and leave space for the more important things – here are the multi-purpose beauty items that will work twice as hard for half the space.
1. Josie Maran 100 per cent Pure Argan Oil, $70
The bottle may look small but it’s certainly mighty. Affectionately known by many as a bit of a wonder oil, argan oil can be used to hydrate and repair dry skin, banish frizz and nourish hair and keep your cuticles nice and healthy. A little goes a long way.
2. IT Cosmetics Illumination CC Cream, $58
Rather than packing a tinted moisturiser and a foundation, this tube combines the best of both, plus SPF 50. It offers great coverage than can easily be built up, feels light and looks dewy on the skin and has a handy squeezy applicator.
