Hello Freckles Holiday Beauty Essentials Hand Luggage Edit Summer
Today I'm jetting off to Barcelona for a few days, so I thought it would be the perfect time to tell you what essentials I've packed into my hand luggage.

For a short city break I don't see the point in paying extra to pop a bigger case in the hold. Yes it's handy if you're going on a shopping spree, hello Sephora, but I can manage to pack enough into a smaller case to see me through 3-4 days. I'd rather have that £30+ to spend on some food/drinks while I'm there.

It can get a bit tricky when it comes to packing the beauty bits. Bumble & Bumble minis will always come away with me, as I favour surf spray over hairspray when I'm away to give me that effortless undone look (which will also happen if I've forgotten to pack a hairbrush) then Rose Jam being my all-time favourite shower gel. I swear I'm still working through my stash from Christmas! Suncream and face SPF are essentials, so I've got mini ones ready to pop in my bag when we arrive so I can reapply during the day. No dodgy sunburn for me please!

I'm only taking one lip balm, lip gloss and lipstick - which for a makeup fiend like me is some task. But if I think about it, during the day I'll probably just want a lip balm to reapply so I'll save my Tom Ford for the evenings. I've popped some of my foundation into a little pot, rather than take the full bulky bottle, then I've put waterproof mascara, concealer and eyeliner in my boyfriend's liquids allowance, along with a little perfume sample, rather than take my full Jo Malone bottle.

I've also thrown in a couple of sample sachets; body scrub, overnight mask and of course I'll have toothpaste and my toothbrush!

What would you take in your hand luggage beautywise?

  1. I love your toiletries bag! It's so pretty! I've never used bumble and bumble stuff but I've heard so many good things. I'll have to pick some up.

  2. I took a mini suncream away with me and it's something I'm going to do on every holiday as they save so much room! I've never tried Bumble & Bumble before, but I'm definitely going to have to give them a go! Enjoy your hols! xxxx
