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.
