We have put together a simple list of luxury travel necessities that we absolutely love here at House of Coco Magazine. We’ve even thrown in a couple of beauts that aren’t really necessities at all, but they are totally and utterly fabulous! For her, for him, and for both.

For Her

DHC Astaxanthin Collagen All-in-One Gel, priced at £36, via DHC UK online.

This all-in-one gel is ideal for travelling with as it tones, hydrates, and brightens skin all in one step. The antioxidant astaxanthin, which is considered 6,000 times more powerful than Vitamin C can be found throughout this product, helping to offer moisture, health and vitality back into the skin. The addition of collagen helps to firm, and the hyaluronic acid protects the skin’s natural moisture.

Flora & Curl, Rose & Honey Milk Leave-In Detangler, priced at £19 for 250ml, via FloraCurl online.

For the curly hair traveller, this little hydrating milk may be the answer to all your prayers. Flora & Curl have produced their Rose & Honey Milk Leave-In Detangler which releases knots and tangles with a pampering and softening conditioning cream cocktail of organic rose water, coconut, and sweet honey. Perfect for all curl types.

Boucléme, Intensive Moisture Treatment, priced at £9 for 2 x 50ml sachets, via selected Space NK stores and Planet Organic stores plus online at Boucléme.

An ingenious idea to package in sachets, so that there’s no waste while away travelling. Boucléme Intensive Moisture Treatment is nutrient rich with a deep and nourishing formula to restore much-needed hydration, strength and shine to damaged hair. Bursting with key actives including Marula Oil, Mafura Butter, Prickly Pear Seed Oil, Wheat Bran and so much more. These sachets are super versatile as they can be used as a pre-shampoo treatment, a leave-in conditioner, or a deep conditioning mask.

Glitz n Pieces, Petra Headband, priced at £9 each, via Glitz n Pieces online.

Bring out all the hair accessories this summer, and where better to invest than with a Petra Headband by the team at Glitz n Pieces! We are into both Petra styles and colours but our absolute fave is the green and mustard headband.

Lisa Kay London, Farrah Leather Espadrilles, priced at £69+, via Lisa Kay London online or Charles Clinkard stores.

No holiday is complete without the addition of a pair of super comfy super espadrilles, and Lisa Kay’s designs for 2018 are some of the best. We simply adore the pale pink leather Farrah design, they are chic, understated and full of attitude.

Breton, T-Shirt, Priced at £22, via Crew Clothing stores or online.

A Breton t-shirt is one of those staple wardrobe items that every luxury traveller has in her luggage, whether for a day out shopping or a day spent on a yacht, a Breton is known for style, worn for ease, and oozes sophistication.

For Him

OppoSuits, Shineapple Suit, priced at £64.95, via Opposuits online.

Could the Opposuits be any more fantastic, we don’t think so. The one we have swooned over the most is the Shineapple, totally tropical and very cool outfit. The suit comprises a pair of shorts with matching short-sleeved jacket and matching tie. Just fun, frivolous and fabulous.

Marloe Watch Company, Haskell Watch, priced at £745, via Marloe Watch Company online.

For all adventurers, the Heskell watch takes its name from the Haskell Strait and is inspired by the extraordinary first British Antarctica exploration carried out by Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his men; Marloe’s first Swiss Made timepiece exemplifies the company’s desire to pursue design excellence and ensure its watches are fit for the modern day adventurer. Of course this watch could be worn by a woman too, it’s classically beautiful and if you are a large watch fan then this may be ideal for you whatever your gender.

For Both

NIVEA UV Face Shine Control, priced at £8, via Superdrug stores and Superdrug online.

We all need to use sunscreen more often, even on the dullest of days. Wherever we travel our luggage should always carry a little UV protection, and this NIVEA UV Face Shine Control SPF50 is a one-stop protection for the face.

MOLESKINE City Notebook, priced at £16.95, via Moleskine online.

There are six notebooks in this brand new collection from MOLESKINE, they include: Berlin, Hong Kong, London, New York, Paris, and Rome. Within this notebook there are city maps, underground maps, blank pages, lined pages, stickers, adhesive sheets, expandable inner pockets, ribbon bookmarks and space for storing other documents. A great accessory for a trip to a new city.
