The Cuddle Up

Discover Your New Scent This Autumn

Is there any season more wonderful than Autumn? Cold wind tousling hair and scarves, the crunch of leaves under chunky boots, evenings on the sofa with a glass of Merlot – it’s the beginning of the snuggliest season. 

As the evenings draw in, we’ll spend more time indoors, more time wearing woolly layers. Suddenly those floaty scents of summer will begin to jar with the autumnal atmosphere. Over the next few months, we’ll be spending more time getting cosy and snuggling up with the ones we love, so what better time to invest in a signature Autumn scent?

If you need inspiration, we’re here to guide your sense with our five top-rated fragrances for both men and women.

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.

Who Is The Average User? Tom Ford aftershaves and colognes are for every man, they’re perfect for Dads of any age.

Our Top 3 Tom Ford fragrance products for Father’s Day

Tom Ford Oud Wood is part of the Private Blend range. A wonderful blend of smoky incense, sandalwood and vetiver. We won’t pretend it’s a budget buy (expect to pay around £100 for a 30ml size) but it’s well worth considering if you can stretch to that extra treat.

Private Blend is my own scent laboratory: it’s where I have the ability to create very special, original fragrances that are unconstrained by the conventions of mainstream scent-making. Private Blend is designed with the true fragrance connoisseur in mind. – Tom Ford

Tom Ford, Private Blend Neroli Portofino (Shower Gel 250ml) – when you’d prefer to give a bath and body product, go for ultimate luxury! Private Blend Neroli Portofino is a best selling, high end fragrance by Tom Ford. This gentle cleansing gel is fragranced with the same scent but at a fraction of the cost. A very modern scent, Neroli Portofino combines citrus oils and floral notes with Amber undertones to awaken the senses.

Tom Ford, Noir (Eau de Parfum 50ml) is an update on the original fragrance released in 2012. The oriental and spicy notes of the 2012 original have been refreshed with a mix of new elements. These include spearmint, Italian lemon and pure citrus oils. This gives the composition a cooling freshness that’s ideal for warmer months and dials down the oriental top notes. Underneath is a base of traditional wood and musk.

All Tom Ford fragrance products have accompanying bath and body products, including soap, deodorant and body lotion, so well worth checking if you’re on a budget.
