5 Reasons Travel Size Makeup and Toiletries Are The Future

Here at allbeauty, we LOVE a travel size beauty product. We certainly don’t need any encouragement to get our hands on the latest mini makeup must-haves. But just in case you’re still sitting on the fence, here are five reasons we go wild for travel size toiletries.


1. Small on size, big on convenience

Whether you’re jetting off on a long haul adventure or spending a weekend at the in-laws, there’s no need to sacrifice convenience this summer. For short holidays of only a few days, our range of products below 30ml is ideal, while if you’re holidaying for a week or more, the “over 30ml” options will keep you well supplied until you return home.

You’d be amazed how many travel size toiletries you can fit into one mini makeup bag. Perfume? Check. Lotion? Check. Shampoo, conditioner, antiperspirant, cleanser, serum, face cream, hand cream, toner, foundation, lipstick, gloss, mascara? CHECK! 

Why force yourself to prioritise the essentials when you can bring it all?

2. They can save you money

Don’t get caught out making last-minute emergency purchases! It pays to be organised and buying toiletries is no exception. A recent investigation into comparative prices between duty free and the high street showed you can often end up paying over the odds for beauty products in airports. 

Instead, save money by ordering everything you need in advance, at allbeauty.

What’s more, for the same amount you’d spend on one large bottle, you can justify buying multiples in travel size. Leave one at work, one in your bag and one at your partner’s apartment – it’s a win/win/win! 

3. Doctor’s orders

You want to be prepared for any situation, whether it be an impromptu meal after work or an unexpected overnight stay. What you don’t want is to lug around all that excess weight. 

The average handbag weighs 3 kilograms, that’s three bags of sugar! It’s no wonder that 63% of women experience regular back pain. Travel size toiletries and mini makeup allow you to scale back the weight of what you keep in your beauty kit, without the need to sacrifice any of your must-have items.

So, whether you’re rocking a changing bag, backpack or slimline purse, free up some room and give your back a break by opting for travel size makeup. Make room for what’s most important.

4. Reduce your holiday waste

Let’s be honest, how many of us have abandoned shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and a host of other toiletries in our hotel at the end of a week away? Do you really want to run the risk of the bottle reopening in your case on the journey home? With travel size products, you bring only what you need, reducing the amount of holiday products which end up in landfill.

Not only that, but those little empty bottles at the end of your holiday still have plenty of life in them. Tried a new lotion and loved it? Buy the full-size version when you get home and decant some into the travel size bottle for your gym bag.

5. Try before you buy

You’ve heard good things about a new perfume but aren’t sure whether to commit. With travel size, you don’t have to! One of the best reasons for buying travel size makeup, perfume or toiletries, is that you get to try new products without having the initial financial outlay. 

Purchasing the mini version of a product you have your eye on allows you to give it a trial run; you can decide later whether the full-size is an investment worth making. 

Those in our office with sensitive skin swear by travel size moisturisers for precisely this reason. There’s nothing worse than buying that new, high-end cream, only to end up having an unfortunate, expensive, breakout. 

Not just that, but many mini beauty products, including lipgloss, perfumes and skincare, also come in collections of a brand’s best selling products. This gives you a fantastic opportunity to try a range of similar shades, scents, or formulations that you may not have picked out otherwise.

Mienai Oshare; The Unseen Japanese Beauty

You have probably heard of the popular beauty craze K-Beauty from Korea, but did you know there is a different Asian derived beauty trend which was founded before Korean Beauty? So, what is it? J-Beauty.

J-Beauty incorporates beauty, skincare, and regimes in Japan. KBeauty tends to feature a lot more colours in their makeup palettes and quirkiness within their skincare regimen such as bubble masks, whereas J-Beauty likes to keep things a little simpler. You may think that J-Beauty would incorporate the same type of products as K-Beauty, however, Japan has a long history of traditions when it comes to skincare and cosmetics. Below the mystery of Japanese beauty secrets are unravelled:


Timeless Traditions

Japanese minimalist and timeless traditions have been rooted in their culture from as early as 700 AD. When you think of traditional Japanese beauty, what comes to mind? Possibly a Geisha? Women cover their face with a white powder called Oshiroi as a symbol of beauty. Fast-forward to the 1600s and beauty cosmetics in Japan were primarily focused on three colours: white, black and red. White powder was used to lighten the face whilst red lips were painted on top in a smaller shape than the natural lip. Red lipstick was also used to accent the outer corners of their eyes with red. Some Japanese women would colour their teeth black as it was a traditional expression of beauty and grandeur. 


Western Influences

Skip forward to the late 1800s and Western influences were growing ever-stronger in Asia after Japan opened their borders to Dutch merchants. Japanese women started to use a broader range of palettes and colours for their make-up as opposed to the traditional three colours. The 20th century provided face powders and lipsticks in a wider range of shades. Extensive variations of skincare products appeared within the cosmetics industry. After World War II and Japan’s surrender to the United States, Japan’s beauty regimes became heavily influenced by Western media – especially American films, celebrities and print magazines.


Innovation Of Cleansing 

So, what is the main focus when it comes to J-Beauty skincare?

Primarily, J-Beauty is all about simplicity, freshness, velvet-like skin and enhancing natural beauty. Did you know that Japanese women introduced us to the concept of double-cleansing? Protecting the skin from the sun is important within the J-Beauty trend, so expect a lot of products to contain SPF. Having clean, moisturised skin is important so products such as serums, facemasks, cleansers and oils are popular, with lighter textures such as milks, gels and emulsions being favoured over thicker creams. Japanese Beauty prioritises taking care of the skin with respect and creating products with the intention of making the skin look and feel its absolute best by offering long-term benefits as a result of preventative care. Why don’t you give Sensai’s 2 Step Cleanse & Purify range a go? Let the results do the talking:

SENSAI Silky Purifying Step 2 Cleanse & Purify Mud Soap (Wash & Mask). Our Price £34.95- save £6.05 (15%) off RRP


Genuine Ingredients

How does a J-Beauty skincare regime differ? Japanese beauty products tend to avoid ingredients with a high percentage of alcohol or the use of harsh chemicals which can irritate the skin. J-Beauty makes use of natural ingredients which derives from the Japanese tradition of using fruits/vegetables, leaves and other organic ingredients in their skincare products. A few examples of popular ingredients used include collagen, pearls, seaweed and green tea extracts. These all-natural ingredients have provided Japanese women with a number of benefits for the skin for centuries, such as softer skin with more elasticity.


Creating Circles

Here’s another Japanese beauty secret for you – as well as being mindful about what is being put on the skin, J Beauty also considers the method of application. Japanese tradition considers the beauty regime as a sign of self-love with the philosophy that skincare should be like a marathon rather than a sprint. Being delicate and applying lotions in a circular motion instead of rubbing are examples of this.  Have you tried SENSAI Silky Purifying Sponge

Time Is Of The Essence

So, if you are looking for skincare and beauty products which prioritise creating healthy skin and natural ingredients, J Beauty would be perfect for you! Do you want to know how to start your own J-Beauty routine?

#1 Use products with a high percentage of natural ingredients, and a low percentage of alcohol and harsh chemicals.

#2 Double-cleanse and use light textured products such as gels, emulsions and milks.

#3 Always use an SPF to protect your skin from UV rays.

#4 Take your time with your new skincare regime and think of it as an act of self-love and self-care.

The Power of Charcoal: Novex’s tips for healthier hair

We were intrigued by Novex’s new Powerful Charcoal Range. We’ve seen activated charcoal make a grand entrance into the teeth whitening category, and wanted to know more about how it can be used to improve our hair. We caught up with Novex to find out exactly how it works…

Why do I need to detox my hair?

On a daily basis, our hair comes in contact with all the impurities and toxins present in the atmosphere, especially in urban areas where there is more pollution. These toxins and pollutant impurities, such as particles, are deposited in the hair and scalp. They accumulate and end up clogging the root and capillary fiber, which impairs the absorption of nutrients and the growth of the strands.

These polluting impurities need to be removed effectively and without harming the strands as well as leaving them protected against external aggressions caused by pollution.

What do the charcoal products look like? Are they black?

All the products from Novex The Powerful Charcoal line have a standard white look and feel. The mask and the conditioner have a creamy and consistent appearance, which allows the strands to be well coated. The shampoo has a liquid consistency so that the product spreads well through the scalp. The spray also has a creamy consistency, so as to protect the conditioned strands.

Where does the charcoal come from?

Activated charcoal, rather than ordinary charcoal, is charcoal especially obtained from the burning of certain woods, cork or fruit peels (e.g. coconut) under very specific conditions. Burning must be at high temperatures (8000 °C – 10000 °C) and low in oxygen. This specific firing gives activated charcoal unique properties such antipollution and detoxification.

How often do I need to use them?

The Powerful Charcoal products are a daily care range and have been developed specifically to be part of the daily routine of capillary care (regular use).

What are the three biggest mistakes people make in hair care and how can they be avoided?

  1. Blow-drying your hair without heat protection
    •  Spraying a heat protector on your hair proactively protects hair from heat damage, plus it seals in shine, calms frizz, and keeps hair from becoming dry.
  2. Not using a conditioner
    • If you’re avoiding using conditioner for fear that your hair will become too flat, think again, you can achieve volume with the right conditioner. Just like your face, your scalp needs moisture too.
  3. Forgetting to moisturize and nourish your hair
    • Hair loses moisture quickly. You can use special hair masks according to your hair type to address this problem. Even if you think your hair is relatively healthy, the change of seasons can be hard on your strands, so it’s good to get in the habit of using a mask weekly to make sure you’re giving your hair the moisture it needs.

Like the rest of our body, our hair reacts to the world around us which is why detoxing, protecting, conditioning and nourishing your hair is important if it’s going to look its best.

Travel Beauty Hacks: What To Pack & What To Ditch

The summer holidays are finally here! Our beauty editors share their travel beauty hacks and reveal what to take and what to ditch…

Travel Beauty Packs: Skincare

If you expose your skin to the three s’s – sun, sweat and SPF – you’re going to have to take a more thorough, yet gentler approach to skincare…

Clarins Cleansing Milk & Clinique TowelettesCleansing is extra extra important when travelling as your skin is exposed to all manner of pore-clogging nasties. A double cleanse in the evening will help to remove every last trace of suncream and make up. We love Clinique Take The Day Off Balm in the first instance, or for a more tavel-friendly option, try Clinique Take The Day Off Micellar Cleansing Towelettes .

For cleanse number two, we love Clarins Cleansing Milk, which leaves skin feeling clean, soft and moisturised. Also use as your one-step cleanse in the morning.

Elizabeth Arden Gifts & Sets Eight Hour Survival SetIf you’re heading for the sun then SPF should be your best friend, no doubt about it. But for night time, you can’t go wrong with a tube of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. Not only does it soothe sunburn should disaster strike, it moisturises and nourishes skin when applied as an overnight balm.

Plus, you can use it in the day as lipgloss, tame brows and nourish lashes – read our blog post here.

Travel Beauty Packs: Makeup

Baggage allowance = time to minimise your makeup. You might not think you can live without your collection of Urban Decay Naked palettes,  but be realistic about how much makeup you’re actually going to wear while you’re away. Stick to the basics, and double up where you can…

Payot Uni skin CC CreamFor dewy, sun-kissed skin, trade foundation/concealer for a tinted moisturiser. We love Payot Uni Skin CC Cream SPF 30 , which combats dark spots, dullness, and redness, colour corrects and conceals imperfections. And, thanks to an anti-UVA reinforced SPF30 filter, skin is protected throughout the day, meaning there’s no need to pack another facial SPF.

For the rest of your face, stick to the basics. We love benefit Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit, which includes everything you need to add a pop of colour to your look – morning, noon or night – in a handy pocket-sized kit.  Tips & Tricks benefit box

Create a natural flush with Rose-Tinted Lip & Cheek Stain, and apply to lips in the evening for a more dramatic look. High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer can add a natural glow to cheekbones and the inner corner of the eyes. Sugarbomb “Sugar Rush Flush” Face Powder creates a  healthy  glow on the cheeks and can be used to contour and add shimmer to the eyelids. Finish with a slick of Ultra Plush Sugarbomb Lip Gloss.

Benefit tinted primerFinally, ditch the heavy lashings of mascara and opt for a tinted primer instead. Benefit They’re Real! Tinted Primer gives lashes a natural, feathery look and can be used to tame brows. Water-resistant formula means its pool proof!

Get the look:

  • Step 1: Apply BB cream all over the skin to even complexion and protect against UV damage.
  • Step 2: Use Sugarbomb “Sugar Rush Flush” Face Powder to create a  healthy  glow on the cheeks, nose and forehead. for a more dramatic evening look, use to  contour and add shimmer to the outer corners of the eyelids.
  • Step 3: Create a natural flush with Rose-Tinted Lip & Cheek Stain using your fingers to blend into the skin. Apply to lips in the evening for a more glamorous red lip look.
  • Step 4:  Using your fingers again, lightly blend High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer to cheekbones and the inner corner of the eyes to create dewy skin.
  • Step 5: Apply lash primer to enhance your lashes and brows for a subtle day-time look, layering more on the top lashes in the evening to define eyes.

Travel Beauty Packs: Haircare

Think your hair is  safe from burning in the sun? Think again! Hair contains melanin, a pigment responsible for the colour of your hair. Exposure to UVA and UVB rays bleach and destroy melanin, making hair lighter, dryer and more prone to breakage.

SACHAJUAN Hair in the Sun To prevent damage, we love the SACHAJUAN  sun care treatment range.

Hair In The Sun protects your hair and hair colour from the sun and also works as a styling cream. Hair After The Sun re-moisturizes, conditions and restores shine in your hair after exposure to UV rays.

Protective Hair Perfume  moisturises, reduces, static, boosts shine, and proves UV protection and has a unique anti-odour technology to freshen the smell of your hair. Hello gorgeous locks!

 

Travel Beauty Packs: Hair Styling

2018 is the revival of the hair accessory – with everything from clips, scarves and Blair Waldorf-ian headbands ruling the SS18 catwalks.

SACHAJUAN Ocean MistWhichever you choose to adorn your head with, team with natural, tousled waves and braids for an effortless, beach-y look.

We love SACHAJUAN Ocean Mist to give hair a natural, care-free look and provide bounce. Created with Ocean Silk Technology, protein and mineral extracts derived from sea algae provide extraordinary results and leave hair feeling nourished, with maximum shine and volume.

  Leave at home…

  • Anything full-size – use an atomiser for your fragrance and decant everything else into mini bottles
  • Hairdryers, tongs and straighteners – give your hair a heat break
  • Full-coverage foundations and concealers – let your skin ‘breathe’ while you’re away – especially if you’re heading somewhere hot. It’ll only slide off anyway…
  • Facial scrubs – if you’re unfortunate enough to burn, the last thing you want to do is irritate the skin further with a harsh exfoliant

Get Monica Bellucci Bond Glamour Just In Time For Spectre…

The glamorous Italian bombshell
Monica Bellucci is one of the latest 007 Bond girls to star alongside Daniel Craig in the
new James Bond flick ‘Spectre’, released in cinemas today; allbeauty.com celebrates her effortless beauty.

Bellucci who is 51 (four years older than her co-star Daniel Craig), was shocked to receive a call from
director Sam Mendes saying that he wanted to cast her as a Bond girl. He said “for the
first time in history, James Bond is going to have a story with a mature
woman.” Bellucci was thrilled as she originally thought he wanted her to replace Judi Dench as
the new M – she said “I realised that this was going to
revolutionary. It’s such a beautiful example to set for other actresses – and
other women.“

Speaking to The Times of London, Bellucci said “True sexiness is
in the mind, the imagination – not in the age of the body.”

Get the Bond beauty’s glamorous look with allbeauty.com:

Monica’s look is very natural only adding a small touch of glamour to her beautiful Italian eyes, lining them with a soft black pencil and a smoky shadow. She finishes her look with a small amount of bronze and a rouge lipstick or a natural gloss that adds a touch of shimmer to her lips.
