Summer vacation—that age-old practice of leaving it all behind—can easily be sabotaged by the impulse to take it all with you. When it comes to packing your beauty kit, carrying only the essentials is as pivotal to your enjoyment as is being able to unplug from your daily responsibilities. Of course, that doesn’t mean sacrificing your favourite small luxuries while you’re away. Inspired by rising temperatures and an idyllic weather forecast, these miniature and multi-tasking products look as good as they feel—and smell! From a no-sink-required disposable cleansing cloth to melt-proof sunscreen that fits into the tiniest of bags, we’ve curated everything you need to last you through the entire holiday and beyond. And don’t forget to stash a well-edited arsenal of scaled-down gadgets: A foldable compact hair dryer and palm-sized Clarisonic should always make the carry-on cut. The end result is sheer, uncluttered, jet-setting bliss. Bon voyage!
