Packing for a trip can be a daunting prospect. How do you justify the contents of a travel-friendly makeup bag without compromising on your go-to beauty regime? Or filter out products—the ones you’re compelled to deem ‘obsolete’—because you cannot afford to saturate your bag any more than you already have?
We’ve all been there: distilling, refining, and condensing our routines into the scope of a bag that teeters at precipice of snapping. And it’s not long before you figure out the convenience of assembling a travel-size version of your favourite product into your drill, and liberating your make-up pouch of all that unnecessary weight.
We’ve tailored a special list to help you manoeuvre the extensive world of beauty-predicated miniature products. You can choose to invest in them in order to acquaint your skin with a new regimen in an economical way; regardless of whether you’re scheduling a trip or not. Also, you don’t need to heed the expiry date anymore. Seems promising, doesn’t it?
With the festive season around the corner, you can also buy one of these products for someone who is travelling soon.
For A Diverse Regime: Forest Essentials Gift Box, Rs. 1,625
This kit preaches self-sufficiency, and embodies an ideal skincare regime. Rooted in extracts of honey, ayurveda, sandalwood, rose, and walnut, it comprises four products that are enough to validate your entire routine: a lip balm, facial cleanser, sunscreen lotion, and facial scrub.
For The Love of Bathing: FabIndia’s Rose and Almond Body Care Gift Box, Rs. 893
This set is fractionated into three body-oriented products: a bath oil, body wash, and body butter.

Formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone, and mineral oil, and a hundred percent animal-cruelty free, this clay mask is a concoction of green tea leaves sourced from Japan, organic tea tree oil from Kenya, and bamboo charcoal derived from the Himalayan foothills. Dermatologically tested, it rewards your skin with a halo-like glow by ridding it of impurities, and accentuating the appearance of your pores.
