Packing when you are carrying on can be a challenge – particularly when you consider the limitations on liquids in your carry-on. It can be hard to decide what to prioritize from your beauty routine. The good news is, thanks to these products from LUSH, you don’t have to sacrifice looking or feeling good while you’re travelling abroad.

Fresh Breath


With mouthwash and toothpaste tabs, you don’t have to worry about dental hygiene taking up part of your liquid allocation. Just add water and voila! You’ve got mouthwash (or toothpaste!) Super handy. It’s like magic.

Great Hair

Shampoo bars and solid conditioners means you just add water in the shower, lather up and you’ve got all the hair care product you need to keep your mane under control. With no packaging, it’s better for the environment too, with no bottles to dispose of after the fact.

Soft Skin 

These massage bars double for lotions and creams to make your skin nice and soft. Some of them are even shimmery which is so fun! They also replace massage oil in case you find yourself in need of a back rub from all that flying. You can even buy cute tins to transport them from A to B.

Soap It Up!

Ditch the body wash and bring these soap slices along for the ride. There are so many different scents to choose from and it means less packaging and plastic to contend with!

You can get everything you need to keep up your beauty routine while you’re globetrotting from LUSH. They just re-opened their Robson Street location and it’s beautiful. Definitely check it out if you’re in town – or hop a plane and see for yourself!

Here are some shots from their grand re-opening:

Disclosure: Lush provided some products to sample, but all opinions are my own.
