We are about to leave on vacation or to fly away for a weekend getaway, we prepared our luggage by taking care to take only the bare minimum! 
However, we won’t skip the essentials of a beauty routine and thus ensure a complete beauty makeover. In summer, the skin is put to the test with the sun, the heat, the wind or the sea baths, here are some tips in travel format to protect and sublimate the whole body.

Small heat strokes for the skin, water evaporates faster and therefore needs to be deeply moisturized. We start by protecting our skin with sun care products, we multiply the hydration gestures with a light day cream, we spray with thermal water all day long. In the evening, and as soon as the need arises, we leave on a mask to soothe and refresh the skin of the face and we coat our body with a silky oil. Summer makeup in miniature will be discreet but sexy!


The Belle Luce travel kit is for lovers of 100% natural, two creams with edelweiss is a little beauty secret to take with you everywhere. Ideal for summer, the face and body cream Stella Alpina – Face Cream with Edelweiss Flowers, known for its antioxidant properties, refreshes, tones and moisturizes. The body cream optimizes the skin’s moisture balance and elasticity, a real sensation of soothing.

Hair care

The sun, chlorine or salt are often the cause of damaged hair, hence the importance of not forgetting your hair care. Kérastase and its Soleil range offers a travel pouch with a 3-step routine:  After Sun Bath, After Sun Mask, and Siren Oil. Enriched with coconut water, vitamin E and UV filters, these treatments will protect, moisturize and enhance your hair all summer long. 

Specially formulated for colored hair, we also recommend PHYTOCOLOR Shampoo by PHYTO Paris, which gently cleanses and protects the color to revive its shine. The hair leaves a delicious and subtle fragrance in its wake.

Sun cream & makeup

The summer essential that is a priority in your suitcase! We love Clarins Invisible Sun Stick SPF50 which, in addition to its effectiveness in fighting UV rays, offers many advantages such as its pocket size, like a bar of soap, which is easy to take everywhere without the risk of sand sticking to it, and its absolute comfort for quick touch-ups.

Shiseido has made us happy with a suncare makeup set that includes Bronzing Compact Foundation for a sun-kissed tan, the perfect mix of sun protection and makeup care in a compact case that you can take anywhere. We add the Perfect Cleansing Oil, soft and light, to completely remove makeup and Matifying Touch-ups, thin sheets of paper with a technology that absorbs sebum for a clean, fresh and shine-free skin.

Fragrances in miniatures

Before taking off, we’ll go to the Duty Free for the last sophisticated touch and choose a miniature perfume. In summer, we tend to favor light fragrances like Dior and its nomadic bottle J’adore Eau de Parfum with its floral bouquet notes. Hermès and its Collection of its various mythical gardens, or Guerlain and its summer must-have Mandarin Basil in the Aqua Allegoria Collection.
