Beauty Travel Essentials

I am planning my next vacation in my head. Nothing has been booked yet but I am thinking somewhere warm and sunny like Dubai or Vegas would be fantastic. Especially now as the sunshine is gradually leaving the UK, it would be nice to escape to a warm region. The online travel specialist; Love Holidays is carrying out a research on people’s travel behaviours; what motivates us to go abroad, do we keep to baggage allowance and what your beauty travel essentials are?

The weather plays a major role in deciding where I spend my holiday. Since we hardly ever have good weather in the UK, I tend to opt for warmer countries where it is nice and sunny, and where I can dress up in my summer outfits and rock my sunnies for some days.


I always try to travel light but most times I end up with excess luggage, especially now that we have kids. It is so hard to travel light when going on holiday. There is just so much junk we need to go with, it is unbelievable. Then we come back with even more junk, guess because we love to shop too much.

The online travel specialist; Love Holidays will is carrying a research I cannot afford to go on holiday without my beauty products. They may be bulky to travel with but I would be lost without them. Here are my beauty travel essentials:


I travel with my entire makeup bag. Crazy but true. It makes my life easier because I can’t be bothered picking out what to travel with and what not to. I may have to change this in future when my beauty products increase, they seem to be increasing a lot these days , but for now, I pack them.


I like rocking a simple hairstyle when I am on holiday because I usually spend a lot of time relaxing in the pool or on a beach. Any fussy hairstyle will be messed up pretty quickly. I usually take a hair spray, a hair polish and a V05 Extreme Style Rework Fibre Putty  with me depending on the hairstyle I have on.

When I go on holiday, I make sure I look after my skin just as I would, so I take these products with me:

  • Fair and White Moisturiser which contains SPF.
  • Vita Coco Coconut Oil
  • Garnier makeup remover
  • Marykay Face Toner
  • Some cotton wool
  • Huggies Baby Wipes


I cannot go on holiday without any of these items. Guess this explains why I always end up with an excess luggage.

Now over to you. What motivates you to go abroad? What are your travel beauty essentials? Do you exceed your baggage allowance? Leave me a comment, let’s chat.

Product Review: V05 Extreme Style Rework Fibre Putty


I am a fan of VO5 products, I have had a couple of them and I think they are fab products. I have been using the VO5 Extreme Style Rework Fibre Putty, famously known as the UK No 1 Styling product for some months now and I have found it quite useful.

Here is what VO5 had to say about the product:

VO5 Extreme Style Rework Fibre Putty allows you to rework and restyle hair all day long with no stickiness, no greasiness or flaking. VO5 Extreme Rework Fibre Putty is ideal for short styles to manipulate hair in any direction with a long-lasting hold. VO5 Extreme Style Rework is a unique Fibre Putty to create the most messed up effects and funky styles with a long-lasting firm hold.

Here are my thoughts on the product.


  1. It is readily available online, in supermarkets and drug stores. I got mine from Boots.
  2. It is quite affordable. I got a 150ml tub for £4.19 and I have had it for over 3 months now.
  3. It is good value for money as most times, you only need a tiny little bit to style your hair. I know someone who has had hers for years now and she still uses it regularly.
  4. It holds brilliantly, no stickiness, makes styling so easy, and leaves long-lasting results.
  5. It gives my hair a glossy finish.

  1. It does leave some residue that could leave whitish traces on your hair so be careful not to use too much, but apart from that this product is FAB.

I recommend this product 110%. It is not known as the No1 Styling Product in the UK for no reason, it is a great styling product, you should try it.

Have you tried this product before? What are your thoughts? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading and have a fab day.
