    1 / 8 Drunk Elephant The Littles Kit 3.0, $128

    This is one comprehensive travel kit. There’s a cleanser, face oil, night serum, hydrating serum, firming day serum, eye cream, moisturiser and sunscreen – which should be adequate regardless of the type of climate of your holiday destination. Since we’re all for being organised so that we can fit more into our suitcase, the waterproof bag that comes with the set is a boon too.

    We’re not kidding when we say we haven’t come across someone who doesn’t like this Australian brand. If you insist you’re an outlier, skip this. If not, we think all of us can benefit from having this travel kit handy whether we’re taking a long-haul flight or a short trip. It comprises a rinse-free hand wash, hand balm, hydrating face mask, face mist, lip cream, mouthwash and toothpaste. Other than the face mask, which we think you can use in the comfort of your hotel room or Airbnb, the rest of the set will keep you feeling refreshed during your journey and soothe frazzled nerves since Aesop’s products all smell so great and calming.

    Available at Aesop

  • Senka A.L.L. Clear Sheets Makeup Remover Wipes, $3.50 for a pack 10 sheets
    3 / 8 Senka A.L.L. Clear Sheets Makeup Remover Wipes, $3.50 for a pack 10 sheets

    Makeup wipes are one of the handiest things to keep in your travel beauty bag. It saves you the hassle of having to lug along cleansing oil or water (which you likely had to have transferred from the original-sized bottles) and can double as wet wipes during emergencies too. These wipes from Senka not only remove makeup, but they also have rice bran oil to sweep off blackheads and dead skin cells, xylitol to help brighten skin tone, and a signature natural silk cocoon essence and hyaluronic acid to restore skin’s moisture too.

  • Briogeo Farewell Frizz Frizz Control Travel Kit, $37
    7 / 8 Briogeo Farewell Frizz Frizz Control Travel Kit, $37

    Even if you’re going to bun your hair up your entire trip, you need to tote along at the very least, a shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment. This set fits the bill, and has not one but two leave-in treatments – a conditioning spray and heat-protecting cream so you can have Instagram-ready hair every single day. This kit is also TSA-approved, so you can bring it along during your flight to freshen up your hair (like you would your face) before disembarking.

  • Aveda Mini Paddle Brush, $31
    8 / 8 Aveda Mini Paddle Brush, $31

    (Also read: The Best Hair Accessories for a Distraction-Free Workout)

    How many times have you forgotten to pack your comb, only to reach the hotel and realise that the flimsy, disposable one just doesn’t cut it for you? Well, too many times to count, for us. So we love this paddle brush from Aveda, which is a miniature-sized version of their best-selling paddle brush. It’s a little bigger than our palm, but the handle fits perfectly into our hands, making it small enough to fit inside our travel bags yet big enough to not feel insubstantial.

    Available at Aveda and Shila Duty-Free stores
