Holiday Space Savers: Clever Travel Kits from Benefit, Burts Bees, Dr Hauschka


I'm a big fan of travel kits for cosmetics and toiletries - they're fabulous for saving space in your suitcase while still allowing you to bring a wide range of sample size products.  And even if you're not going on holiday anytime soon, travel packs are a great introduction to a brand's offerings, allowing you to try out a few items before committing to a full sized purchase. Here are three great examples that recently arrived here at Fluffy Towers.




ONE An ASOS exclusive, these Benefit travel packs include one full sized product and two luxury samples - decent sized minis, that are well presented in cute yet sturdy packaging. The products arrive nestled on pink straw in a cute candy cane striped box, and you can choose from two combinations - both designed to brighten your skin for summer.



The set pictured includes a full sized version of Benefit's That Gal brightening face primer, alongside a miniature Sunbeam - the brand's latest liquid highlighter - and The Porefessional, which minimises pores and fine lines. This set is €29.72.

Or opt for a full sized box of Hoola bronzer, which comes with a free mango lip and cheek stain, Cha Cha Tint, and Watts Up cream highlighter - that one's €32.49.  Check 'em out here.


TWO Dr. Hauschka's Daily Body Care kit is a great introduction to the brand's natural organic range. Perfect for popping in your case for a week away, this includes two vials of body oil - rose and lemon lemongrass - along with a lavender bath oil, two body moisturisers - rose and quince - and a little tube of hand cream. It's all housed in a lovely tin case - bath and face care kits are also available. They're all priced between €15 and €25 - find your nearest stockist here.



THREE This Burt's Bees Head To Toe Kit contains six of brand's most popular products: Beeswax Lip Balm, Coconut Foot Cream, hand salve, Peppermint & Rosemary body wash (a personal favourite), Milk and Honey body lotion and Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream - great value for €16.95.

The products smell amazing and can be found at Avoca, Arnotts, Nourish and selected health stores and chemists, nationwide.

Have you tried any of these? What are your favourite travel kits?

I like Burt's Bees and Benefit, great products. I have a thing for travel kits, I like having mine all together and neat when I go travelling, it is such a time saver and makes adjusting to a hotel room much easier. It's great when you can get all the bottles together in a kit as on their own travel size bottles can be so expensive. Hope you have a super weekend doll xx

I'm the opposite- I usually steer clear of travel kits because they usually contain 1-2 things I want and a bunch of stuff I don't- but that Dr. Hauschka one looks good. I'd be interested to try the face kit!

I love travel kits, they're not only useful for when you're away on a trip but are also great when you just want to try out a selection of products from a company to see what does and doesn't work for you!

I Love travel kits for trying out products! They're usually reasonably enough priced that you don't mind spending the money in order to see of you like products. The burts bees ones are great, I found some of my favourite products by buying their travel kits!

I love travel kits and I'm happy to see more companies putting their products into one. I've tried the Burts Bees, but not the others. I need to revisit Benefit. It's been awhile since I've tried their products. Thanks for showcasing these.

I have that exact Burt's Bees one and love it! I'm a fan of all of their products - especially the baby line for my son. Dr. Hauschka's line are up their with favorite products as well when it comes to anti-aging creams and such. The lavender bath oil in that kit sounds divine:)
