Travel friendly beauty is something that I’ve become completely obsessed with over the last few months. With our trip to New York coming up in just a couple of weeks, I seem to have developed an obsession with ridiculously cute mini beauty products and travel gift sets. Here you can find an in-depth rundown of some of the best things I’ve recently tracked down. Hopefully it will come in handy for those of you who also have travel plans this summer!

Travel Friendly Beauty Gift Sets

Essentials ‘Try Me’ Liz Earle Travel Set: First up is the gorgeous Liz Earle travel set. After already falling in love with the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish hot cloth cleanser, I was excited to try more products from the Liz Earle range. This set is ideal, not only for anyone planning their travels, but also for those wanting to try a selection of products from Liz Earle before buying the full size. They are really good sizes for miniatures and will definitely see you through anything from a weekender to a longer vacation.
