Whether you're planning a cottage getaway, camping adventure, or exploring new destinations,  proper packing can make all the difference between a stressful journey and smooth sailing (flying, driving… whatever your chosen mode!). When it comes to travel essentials, we know our stuff. So read on for a little help in packing smart and making the most of your trip.


Skincare Travel Essentials

Dry airplane cabin air, lack of sleep, food that’s not ideal… Travel can wreak havoc on your daily skincare ritual. It doesn’t have to though. Not when you pack your travel-sized moisturizer (or any sample sachets work a treat too). If you’re jetting off to somewhere sunny, don’t forget your sunscreen. It sounds obvious, but as well as protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, it helps stop you looking tired and dehydrated by the change in temperature. Don’t forget to take care of yourself on the flight itself too! For longer flights we love this this green jelly-balm cleanser from Deviant that includes blueberry, cucumber, broccoli and hemp-seed oil. For your hands why not try Byredo’s Tulipmania hand rinse, an on-the-go wash that’s made to help your hands feel fresh and clean without any water.


Noise-Canceling Headphones

From long-haul journeys to exploring your destination, noise-canceling headphones are a game-changer. Block out the hustle and bustle around you and immerse yourself in your favorite audiobooks, podcasts, or music. Get your trip off to the best start with a peaceful journey. Sony’s WH-1000XM5 get a great write-up.


Travel Packing Pods

Stay organized, maximize your packing space and (as Marie Kondo would say) “spark joy” with travel packing pods – like ours! These handy companions help you pack efficiently and neatly compartmentalize your clothes, accessories, and other travel essentials so you can easily find them when you get to where you’re going.
