view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Whatever your destination, send unsightly stubble and under-eye bags packing with these manly miniatures

1. Clarins

£38, Clarins, 0800 036 3558, available in November

This is one for those who'll miss their barber's razor while away from home. Packaged in a chic navy case, it's one for those who take their skincare regime seriously.

2. Dr Hauschka

£17.95, drhauschka.co.uk

If the idea of going to bed without thoroughly cleansing away the day's impurities brings you out in hives, this handy little introductory kit to the fuss-free skincare brand Dr Hauschka will be enough to keep your skin looking its best while on the move.

3. Aveda Men

£25, aveda.co.uk

Essential oils of lemon, spearmint, vetiver and lemon have gone into this Aveda set of haircare and aftershave moisturiser, so it's safe to say it's for the guy who likes to look and smell rather nice. There is even a little pot of grooming clay to make sure locks are styled to perfection.

4. Rituals

£22.90, rituals.com

Made with the travelling gent in mind, this handy little set comes in a zippable transparent case. Containing everything you will need for a short trip, without the hassle of decanting and refilling, it's the ideal companion on the road.

5. Nivea

£6.64, boots.com

So not everyone wants to cleanse, tone, scrub and mask; the essentials are sometimes enough. And this travel pack from Nivea won't scare off the manliest of men – shower gel, shaving gel, deodorant, post-shave balm, mini toothbrush and paste should be just enough to keep macho-ness in check.

6. Aesop

£47, aesop.com

Be warned, once you've sampled Aesop's products, its hard to use anything else, and its travel kits are second to none. This "New York" case ("Geneva" is also available) contains face and body miniatures from its popular poppy-seed line.

7. Naturals for Men

£9.99, superdrug.com

The tingly green mint and eucalyptus-flavoured products in this travel bag are just the thing to wake you up and wash away any grogginess after a few too many in-flight Bloody Marys.

8. Cowshed

£18.50, cowshedonline.com

You might not be able to afford a weekend at the Babington House spa, but you can afford to take its products away with you for a weekend and pretend. The amusingly titled Pocket Cow Bullocks includes a shaving cream, moisturiser, body scrub and facial scrub in miniature forms.

9. Molton Brown

£40, moltonbrown.co.uk

One for the frequent flyer, this bag is jam-packed with goodies which will keep you feeling fresh and revived as you rack up the air miles. The lip saver is essential when spending time in the air-conditioned cabin and the mini EDT rids the need of picking something up in duty free.

10. Malin+Goetz

£20, uk.spacenk.com

If you're going away as a couple and want unisex products to share, this would be a good option. Suitable for all hair and skin types and with neutral packaging, it won't be embarrassing when your bag gets searched at customs.
