As any good dermatologist knows, it’s not the size of the bottle but what’s inside that counts. From the compact serum that can instantly transform tired eyes to the product that you won’t want to be without on your next flight, here are five travel-size skincare heroes that will make all the difference.
The heroic tonic
La Mer is a byword for the absolute best in skincare and it has the results to back it up. The Concentrate is 15ml of expertly blended, potent ingredients, including the brand’s Miracle Broth, a mixture of sea kelp, vitamins and minerals, which works to heal and strengthen skin quickly. Tiny, but mighty, use this to calm breakouts or brighten up tired skin.
The spot blaster
Woke up with a face like Vesuvius? Call Dr. Barbara Sturm. We’re not giving you her number, but we can advise using the good doctor’s Clarifying Spot Treatment, which will banish those pesky spots in no time, thanks to some zinc oxide and tea tree oil. Another small but effective detail: it’s the tiniest bit tinted to help subtly cover any redness.
The travel companion
If you’re a nervous flyer, be sure to pack Aesop Ginger Flight Therapy. A compact, portable roll-on applicator delivers a soothing mix of ginger root, lavender and geranium to calm anxiety and alleviate nausea. Whether you’re feeling antsy before take-off or overthinking a big meeting, this will help.
The cult cream
If you haven’t heard of Augustinus Bader yet, where have you been? One of the worst kept secrets in modern skincare, the brand’s The Cream has a legion of devotees who swear by its youth-enhancing effects. It comes in 15ml, 30ml and 50ml, but don’t be surprised if even the smallest size gets you hooked. If you’ve got this on your bathroom shelf, there’s little else you’ll need.
The eye saviour
Triumph & Disaster’s Dichotomy Eye Serum is packed with kakadu plum fruit (the most vitamin C-rich food on Earth), soothing Norwegian kelp and Persian silk tree bark extract, which work to lift and firm the tired-looking skin around your eyes. A youthful revolt in a tiny bottle.
