Travel Heroes; What to pack for your Summer holidays

We recently sat down with the Sculpted team to find out what products they would class as their Travel Heroes. Of course, there were a lot of suggestions as naturally, Sculpted products fit that ‘glowing summer skin’ bill quite well, but there were some products that were just unanimous across the board. We thought we’d share them with you to hopefully take the stress out of packing for your Summer holidays. 

Up first, the ultimate winner to pack everything into was our Clear Travel Bag

These makeup bags make for a stress free airport visit as you can separate your liquids easily and you shouldn’t be asked to transfer your products to a plastic ziplock bag at security. We’re getting flustered just thinking about it. The team have travelled to New York, Paris, London & Italy and not once were the bags an issue. Also, as the bag is clear, it makes finding your products effortless and let’s face it, they look pretty damn cute too, so why not use it as an everyday makeup bag? 


Hydration is key all year round but especially when travelling as transport & the changing environments can make our skin scream for hydration. HydraGlo is our hydrating serum that can be used as part of both your morning and evening skincare routine.

It’s contains Good-For-You ingredients like;

Hyaluronic Acid for hydration

Niacinamide for antioxidant protection 

Shea Butter to lock in moisture 

Ceramides to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier 

It’s the perfect, lightweight serum lotion to provide all day hydration while acting as the ultimate prep step for your summer skin goals. 


 Beauty Base Protect

By now, we should all know how important it is to wear SPF daily. Regardless of the weather outside,  harmful UV rays are always present and ready to damage our skin, and unfortunately it’s our faces that get the most exposure. That brings us to our next Travel Hero, Beauty Base Protect. This is our all-in-one moisturising primer with broad spectrum SPF50.  Its universal and shimmer free tone makes it suitable for all skin tones and it can be worn alone as a moisturising SPF or under makeup as a protective primer.

 *Beauty Base Protect is also available in a mini 30ml size, making it the perfect addition to your holiday makeup bag.  

Tint & Glow

Tint & Glow is essentially our summer skin hero in a 30ml tube. This lightweight skin enhancer acts as a tinted moisturiser and provides a sheer coverage tint on the skin while adding a radiant & natural glow. Packed with broad spectrum SPF30 and carrot root extract for blue light protection, it’s an essential for glowing, protected & perfected skin. Tint & Glow is our secret to that ‘no makeup’ makeup look. 

Not yet brave enough to sacrifice some coverage? Try our Second Skin matte foundation for an oil free, medium buildable coverage base. Second Skin also has SPF50 and although it’s a matte formula, it still allows your skin’s natural radiance to shine through. 

Velvet Veil

Summer & travelling can leave us crazily craving powder touch ups in order to control shine and absorb excess oil on the skin. The downside of powder touch ups is that it can leave the skin looking super flat and matte. That was of course until Velvet Veil was born. Our lightweight, mineral, invisible setting powder controls oil & shine but yet still allows the skin to look radiant.  Hyaluronic Acid keeps the skin hydrated while niacinamide helps to target texture & shine.

Velvet Veil is now also available as a pressed powder, and we have packed it into a mini size so you can lighten your holiday makeup bag. This is the ultimate Travel Hero. 


Lip balms are essentials all year round, but when it’s tinted and contains SPF25, you just know you couldn’t complete your holiday look without it. We currently have six HydraLip shades to choose from for a sheer pop of colour that will provide the lips with hydration that lasts all day. 

Top Tip; you can also double up on this one and use it as a dewy, balmy blush. 

Bare Basics 

When packing for your holidays, what you really need is zero fuss. So why not bring one palette that has everything you need in it for both your everyday basic look or your full on party glam? Our Bare Basics palettes include 7 steps to a flawless face; Bronzer, Tinted setting powder, Blush, Cream Highlight & 3 different eyeshadows to enhance the eyes. The versatility of these palettes is second to none and it has everything you need for your holidays, including a large mirror for touch ups on the go. 

Body Base

Our easy-to-use instant tan creates a healthy radiant finish on the skin while adding gorgeous coverage and colour. Hyaluronic Acid and Shea Butter ensure your skin remains hydrated, and broad spectrum SPF30 shields against UV damage. We know that holidays are where you go to get the tan, but if you want to show up holiday ready, an instant tan is the answer. This Travel Hero is available in two shades, light & medium and both shades come in a matte & a shimmer finish. It's a must-have! 


Going on holiday? Why not pick up some of our Travel Heroes? This summer, we’ve taken the stress out of packing and introduced a brand new bundle, 3 for €30/£28 across all our ‘mini sized’ products. 

Within our Travel Heroes bundle, you can choose from;

Beauty Base 30ml (Original, Pearl, Rose Golden & Protect) 

Beauty Balm (*full size product that is cute enough to be classed as a mini) 

Velvet Veil Pressed Mini

Mini Buffer Brush

Any Liquid Lights shade (*Again, these are full size products but are worthy of a travel hero title) 

Hopefully, packing for your summer holidays will be that little bit easier now that you know what Sculpted Essentials to include!

Whatever your Travel Heroes may be, just make sure SPF is one of them!
