Beauty Packing Hacks for a Travel-Friendly Beauty Kit

Travelling can be an exciting adventure, but packing can often feel like a daunting task, especially when it comes to your beauty essentials. That bulky cleanser, the pristine palette you don’t want to smash, the decisions between gels, creams, balms or liquids… it can all feel like a bit of a saga. 

What if we were to tell you that smart and efficient packing is a thing, and it’s actually super easy.

Here’s some tips on how to pack a travel-friendly beauty kit, without bringing multiple products. 

Travel-Sized Body Products - with Matching Scents.


It’s all about compact convenience, so when it comes to body care, matching travel-sized products is just a game-changer. Look at travel body wash and body lotions from the same brand, this saves space but also ensures you stay consistent with scents, which helps maintain your skin's balance and avoids potential allergic reactions to unfamiliar ones.

Moreover, travel-sized body products are designed to comply with airline liquid restrictions, allowing you to carry them in your hand luggage (winner for weekend trips!). You’ll find two matching ESPA travel sized body products in our Travel Essentials beauty box for June.

Cleansing Bars: Multi-Functional Marvels

A cleansing bar is another must-have in your travel beauty kit. Firstly, they are solid and free from the hassle of liquid restrictions. They are versatile and can be used for both face and body, saving valuable space in your luggage if you can’t fit in a body wash.

Cleansing bars are also long-lasting, eco-friendly and less likely to spill or leak. When choosing a cleansing bar, look for one that suits your skin type and contains nourishing ingredients, as your skin can become drier on holiday. Many cleansing bars are formulated with gentle, hydrating components such as shea butter, coconut oil, and essential oils. You’ll find the Dr H Skincare Rose + Macadamia Cleansing Bar in our Roccabox June Travel Essentials box, which has soothing rose to calm the skin. 

Bubble Sheet Masks: Luxurious On-the-Go Treatment

No travel beauty kit is complete without a touch of luxury, and bubble sheet masks provide just that. These masks are infused with special formulas that create a bubbly, foamy texture upon application. They offer deep cleansing and hydration, making them perfect for reviving tired skin after a long journey, or a full day in the sun. 

Bubble sheet masks are lightweight and easy to pack, taking up minimal space in your bag. They offer an instant spa-like experience, helping you unwind and refresh your skin after a day of exploring. The bubbling action helps to lift impurities from your pores, leaving your skin feeling clean and rejuvenated. Plus, they are disposable, meaning you can simply use and toss them, freeing up space as you go.

You can find Rodial’s Bubble Mask in selected boxes of our June edition, too! 

Opt for multi use products

Cheek lip and eye tints, a bronzing setting powder, shimmer body lotions… think about the items that can double up to save you space. A brow pencil in a similar shade as to what you like using to line your eyes (a mid brown is always a win) can save all the pencils you’d tend to pack! 

The best bit? Our Roccabox Travel Essentials box is almost like we’ve packed for you. You’ll either get the Rodial Jelly Eye Patches or the Bubble Sheet Mask, along with matching scent body products from ESPA, a hydrating hero from PerriconeMD and a versatile cleansing bar from Dr H. Subscribers can get this handy box for £15, while one-off purchases are £22.
