[box]Don’t go anywhere this year without packing your own personalised Travel Beauty Miniature. Be prepared for every need and every climate with one of our Top Five Travel Skincare Must Haves![/box]

With a world of cosmetics out there and just as many conflicting opinions of which to use, choosing the right products for your skin can be a daunting task! Of course, nobody knows your skin like you do, but with a little listening and some good old-fashioned chit-chat the trusty teams of our Top Five cosmetic concessions will come pretty close.

Shu Eumura

For the latest in cosmetic technology look no further than Shu Eumura. The Japanese brand invests an awful lot of time in perfecting its lotions and potions, from creating the first stable vitamin capsule that bursts on impact so as to ensure the vitamin is only active when it’s on the skin, to coming up with new and exciting natural extract combinations that will rebuild and protect your skin from environmental aggressors. The only notable downside is that not all of the products you will surely want to take away come in travel sizes. However, buy in store and explain that you are travelling and the consultant at hand will happily supply you with the sample sizes you’ll need for your trip and you’ll be glad of the larger purchase once you’ve tried it!

For those who burn easily and require a little extra help avoiding the suns rays, head to your nearest SUQQU counter! It isn’t easy to find a good SPF for the face, often they’re too thick, too creamy or too greasy! But SUQQU offer a day cream with SPF 50, and as if the high factor alone wasn’t impressive enough, the all day moisturizer is so silky-smooth you’ll forget you’ve even applied it!
