Everyone loves a holiday, but there's no denying that packing can be stressful.
We'd like to take some of that stress away, with our top beauty travel products, as curated by Jaki, our inspiring leader, and intrepid traveller.
Here are her top 10 must-have beauty products that she would not leave home without.
Thermal Spring Water Spray 50ml, $12.95
This nifty little spray is an absolute essential.
It is hydrating, cooling, sets your makeup and relieves sunburn and rashes.
Small enough to fit into your hand luggage, it's one of the first items I pack, no matter where I'm headed.
Everything Balm 45ml, $18.95
Another hard-working multi-tasker, this can be used absolutely everywhere for a boost of hydration and nourishment.
I use it as a foot cream on dry heels, a hand cream (don't forget to rub it into your nails and cuticles), lip balm and even an eye cream to counteract the air-conditioning on flights.
And as if that's not enough, you can even use it to remove makeup after long day of sight-seeing.
Moisturising Hand Sanitiser 50ml, $10.00
Even when you're off the beaten track, you don't need to sacrifice cleanliness.
This gel disinfectant can be rubbed into the hands and does not need to be washed off with water.
I love the smell and the fact that it is moisturising and hygienic.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+
Nutritive Oil Comfort 200ml Pump Bottle, $36.95
A great non-sticky, water-resistant sunscreen with a high SPF for all-over sun protection.
Nothing worse than spending your holidays sunburnt and sore!
Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk 50ml, $7.95
Sometimes you just don't get to time to wash your hair on holidays, so a few sprays of this dry shampoo adds texture and volume and removes oiliness, all without getting your hair wet.
It's also great in humid climates.
This best-selling liquid foundation is buildable and sweat-proof so is perfect if you're heading to tropical regions.
It lasts for up to 15 hours, so you can wear it all day and night, without worrying about your foundation.
For lighter coverage, I love this CC Cream by Clinique.
It lasts, is oil-free and contains a sunscreen and I love how it evens out my skin tone, without being too heavy on my skin.
Good brows are absolutely essential for any look, and this kit gives me perfect brows every time.
It's also waterproof and sweat-proof so no need to worry, even if it's hot or if you're going for a swim.
Eye of Horus
Goddess Mascara $34.95
This is a great mascara which I rave about to everyone who listens.
It makes my lashes longer and thicker, doesn't smudge, and yet easily comes off with warm water and a cloth.
It's even suitable for sensitive eyes.
This is a gorgeous fragrance, rich and rare, made with real flowers, fruits and spices, that lingers all day and well into the night.
The 30ml size and slim bottle make it the ideal travel companion.

FUN IN THE SUN
Fleeing the cold for warmer climates? There's something so appealing about a tropical holiday at the beach or a resort to refuel the soul.
But don't forget to look after your skin and hair while you are enjoying those cocktails at the swim-up bar!

Oli2015 was a momentous year for the team at Kiana Beauty!
We proudly launched our online store, had two children start school, welcomed two new babies, become a Grandmother again, watched one of our sons get married in stunning Sorrento - Italy, and experienced some magical moments with loved ones in Sri Lanka, Maldives, Italy, Switzerland and Greece. It has been an exhausting yet truly beautiful year.
We're all looking forward to slowing down the pace a bit over the summer and spending time with our families - with long lazy lunches, chilled champagne, siestas, and sand between the toes.
Here are our travel must-haves. The things we personally love to use in the summer holidays when it's all about minimal effort. But don't stress!! We're staggering... 🡒 Continue Reading
