Beauty travel kits have come a long way since the days when all they seemed to contain were useless products you’d never dream of using – home or away. Green & Spring Take Flight, £35, is one of the most delightful. The chic bag contains five of this lovely brand’s essentials. Shampoo, Conditioner, Shower & Bath Foam, Body Lotion and an Antibacterial Hand Gel (genius!) come in a clear, foldable zip-up bag – ideal for short trips away (love the bird illustrations, too!). All of Green & Spring products feature herbal extracts sourced from the UK, as well as pure essential oils, making them suitable for all the family. These are also big enough for a couple of days away – another bug bear of mine – many kits contain tiny products that only last as long as one shower/hair wash – so this seriously does get my seal of approval. Ideal to pack and go.
While we are on the subject, I’d also like to give a mention to the Childs Farm Top-to-Toe Cleaning Kit for Kids, £9.35. It also contains decently–sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner and bubble bath in a clear, practical pouch. Its rare to find usable children’s products that aren’t big and bulky and so this is fantastic for keeping the kiddies fresh and clean when away, and not be laden down. The range is infused with honey, organic orange, strawberry and peppermint oils so they also smell divine and are kind to the skin.
