The restrictions on carrying liquids on planes may be a pain, but they're hardly new which is why I'm always astounded by those who moan about the expensive perfume they've just had to sacrifice at security.

Sticking to the rules doesn't have to mean messily decanting your favourite products or rooting around for smellies liberated from hotel bathrooms though, as brands are increasingly offering Lilliputian versions of their bestsellers.

They're Real! Push-up Liner

£19.50, benefitcosmetics.co.uk

It's unusual to find a pen-like gel liner and this needs some practice to get the nib-like applicator to work but the results are dark, glossy and long-lasting.

The Super Elixir Travel Pack

£19, welleco.com

A trip doesn't have to mean your nutrition regime goes out the window. These sachets of supplement are handy for battling the 4 o'clock slump.

Scrubbers Nail Polish Remover Wipes

£8, butterlondon.co.uk

I can't stand wearing chipped nail polish, so a couple of these individually wrapped removal wipes are always tucked in my wash bag.

 

Foaming Cleanser (part of set)

£40, net-a-porter.com

Swedish skin care range Verso has high levels of Retinol8 a vitamin A derivative which can reverse the signs of ageing to impressive effect.

Mini Manipulator

£5.95, bedhead.com

Leave the hair dryer at home this summer and instead braid long hair while still damp, a smidge of this texture paste will keep frizz under control.
