One of the best – and worst – parts of travelling for any beauty junkie is probably packing all your beauty needs into that limited luggage space you have. Especially for those of us with an elaborate 10-step skincare routine and who use multiple makeup products to achieve, well, the no-makeup look, there is always never enough space for your products… or so you thought.

As we start packing our luggage for leisure travel again, beauty brands have been releasing even more travel sizes and minis of our holy grail products so we don’t have to fret about having to carry full-sized bottles or make do with products that our skin doesn’t love.

Read on to check out the best travel beauty products to take with you on vacation!

Best travel beauty products: skincare

Muji Light Toning Water High Moisture

best travel beauty products singapore

Muji’s skincare products may be lesser known than their lifestyle items, but their Light Toning Water is one of the best-kept secrets among skincare aficionados.

One of the main ingredients in the Toning Water is natural water drawn from a cave in Kamaishi, Iwate Prefecture in Northeast Japan. The ultra-soft mineral water has been naturally filtered for years and penetrates comfortably into the skin without irritating it. It is also part of the Sensitive Skin line, meaning that it is free from artificial colouring, mineral oils, parabens and alcohol.

For those who always suffer from dry and itchy skin due to frequent travelling, you must pop this toner from Muji into your carry-on – whenever your skin feels parched, just apply a small amount for instant hydration!

Muji Light Toning Water High Moisture retails at S$4.90 in Muji stores.

Sephora Collection Mini Cleansing Face Wipes

Travel Sized Beauty Products Sephora Collection Cleansing Face Wipes Mini

Eliminate the need for micellar water, cleansing oil, and cotton pads with just one handy product: cleansing face wipes.

What’s interesting is that there are two different sides: one for exfoliation, which is integrated with micro-beads to eliminate impurities and dead cells, while the other is smooth and effectively cleanses the skin and removes makeup. We definitely love a beauty product that can kill two birds with one stone!

Sephora Collection Cleansing Face Wipes (Mini) retails at S$6 in Sephora.

Son&Park Travel Size Beauty Water

Travel Sized Beauty Products Sonpark Travel Size Beauty Water

Too lazy to bring a different product for each step of your skincare routine?

Son&Park’s Travel Size Beauty Water not only comes in an extremely convenient size that fits nicely into your toiletries bag but also packs a variety of benefits so that you can achieve more in one step.

You can use the Beauty Water as a cleanser to remove makeup, as an exfoliator (thanks to the willow bark and papaya extract in its formulation), and as a toner to prep your skin for the next skincare steps.

Son&Park Travel Size Beauty Water retails at S$3.90 on Shopee.
