Cutting down on the beauty products you take on holidays can be tough. With a watchful eye on the bulge in our suitcase, we at Independent Woman have been raiding the beauty counters in search of the best holiday products. .

Here are our favourites:

Kerastase Huile Celeste

Sun exposed hair in need of protection may find a good travelling companion in Huile Celeste by Kerastase. Loaded with highly reflective gold micro-particles as well as UVA and UVB filters, this lightweight misting oil shields hair from damage and works to condition even the most thirsty of follicles. With shiny, healthy hair only a quick spritz away, you can forget the deep conditioning and head straight for the beach!

Available from selected salons priced at €24.30

Dermalogica's Sheer Tint Moisturiser

Summer skin looking for some light coverage with plenty of protection will love Dermalogica's Sheer Tint Moisturiser. Packed with skin softening goodies like olive and walnut seed, the grease free formula comes with an SPF of 15 and works to both hydrate dry skin and protect from UV damage. Moisturiser, protection and a decent base in one product - genius!

Available from selected salons priced at €37.40

Jo Malone's Lime Basil and Mandarin Dry Body Oil

Beauty conscious travelers tight on space will fall head over heals for Jo Malone's Lime Basil and Mandarin Dry Body Oil. Doubling as both an intensive body moisturiser and a delightfully summery fragrance, the light oil dries fast leaving skin super soft and beautifully fragranced. Perfect for massaging into post beach skin, the oil comes in convenient 100ml bottles which means breezing through airport security is like a walk in the park!

Available from Brown Thomas priced at €50.00

Lifting, moisturising and anything but flaky. Sun drenched peepers keen to avoid giving the game away can stay dark and luscious with a little help from Estee Lauder's Sumptuous Waterproof Mascara. From pool to beach and back again, Sumptuous stays where it's put and the formula is perfect for everything from poolside ogling by day to full on flirting by night!
