London based, Europe bound. Living in London affords yuppies like ourselves the luxury of low-cost flights to dozens of destinations across Europe. Particularly for long weekends, you only need carry-on luggage so it’s especially important to know the cabin baggage liquids allowance and get your liquids right. Breeze through the airport checks like the seasoned traveller you are with these compact liquid essentials.

Lucas Papaw Ointment 25g
Manufactured in my home state (Queensland), I’m 99% sure when I say that a tube of Lucas Papaw Ointment is in every Australian woman’s handbag. The ointment is multi-purpose and a must-have. Perfect as a lip balm but also for relieving and cleansing cracked skin, wounds and insect bites.
The Wiltshire Beekeeper Honeysuckle Hand Cream 45g
I discovered this amazing hand cream in the gift shop of the Roman Baths in Bath, UK. With a soft, faint fragrance, this hand cream glides over your hands smoothly without leaving them greasy. Available in multiple scents.
NuCerity Body Silk 50mL*
You won’t believe me when I tell you that I’ve found your all-in-one hydrating serum that can be used on your skin, hair and nails. Possessing a unique combination of essential oils and antioxidants, Body Silk is a full-body hydration solution that soothes dry and sensitive skin and adds shine and moisture to wet or dry hair. Suitable for women and men.
Australian Bush Flower Travel Essence Mist 50ml
Travelling at high altitudes means that our skin is exposed to lower levels of humidity which contributes to dehydration. A small spritz of this light mist will have you feeling calm and refreshed when you step off the plane.
Intensive Eye Repair 15ml
Pop this tiny tube into your carry-on and carefully apply to the delicate areas around your eyes after you’ve removed your make-up. Cucumber and arnica help to keep skin smooth and reduce puffiness around your eyes. Super handy if you’ve just come off a long-haul flight!
Ego Aqium Hand Sanitiser 60ml
This little tube proves very useful when you find yourself sans bathroom before eating. Alcohol based hand sanitizer will significantly reduce the number of germs on your hands. So for those instances where hot soapy water isn’t available, apply a small dollop in your palm and rub gently into your hands.
Peony Rose Fragrance Rollerball 20ml
Discovering Oliver Bonas’ rollerball perfumes was a dream come true! You can apply a quick slick behind your ears and wrists and then slip the tube into your purse before that romantic dinner date by the seaside.
Ambre Solaire UV Sport Sun Cream SPF 30 50ml
Slip, slop, slap. It’s the slogan that every Aussie kid learns when they’re young. Sun protection is of utter importance, especially in the summer! Don’t be slack and make sure to apply and re-apply every few hours.
Daily Protection BB Cream SPF 30 30ml
A convenient and comfortable foundation treatment, this fresh multi-function tinted cream protects, perfects and moisturises. This light coverage with added SPF protection is my go-to application during the day as an alternative to heavier foundations. Available in seven shades.
Aesop Shine 25mL
This lightweight hydrating oil is perfect for when you’re on the go. Squeeze a few drops into your hands and apply to either damp or dry hair. The serum softens and adds lustre and is recommended to be suitable for all hair types.
