Solid beauty products have been on the up and up for a while now, hailed as an eco-alternative without wasteful plastic packaging. And whilst solid shampoos and conditioners have been welcomed for their green credentials, there are also a multitude of lesser-known solid beauty products for the skin. Rather than simply reinventing soap (I said it), they are formulated to offer specific solutions to maintain a beautiful visage (and a compact solution to the unappealing prospect of toting a bag chock-a-block with bulky beauty products). These are the best beauty products to see you through the holiday season that can be squashed into hand luggage with ease.

Milk Makeup Matcha Detoxifying Face Mask
Milk Makeup’s solid Matcha Detoxifying Face Mask is an antioxidant-rich solid formula made with green tea and witch hazel to reduce inflammation and shrink visible pore size.  Super-concentrated, you apply it for only five minutes before washing off with warm water.  The organic cactus elixir ensures that the skin doesn’t dry out and helps to reduce any irritation and redness, leaving skin hydrated, smooth and glowing.

Dermatalogica Daily Microfoliant
Dermatalogica Daily Microfoliant is a gentle rice bran based exfoliator without any artificial fragrance or colour. Ideal for all skin types, the powder activates with water to release papain, salicylic acid and rice enzymes which micro-exfoliate the skin. Combined with grapefruit, green tea and colloidal oatmeal, the blend helps to smooth, brighten and enliven your visage.

We Are Wild Solid Water Probiotic toner
This toner contains water, probiotics and fermented antioxidants to hydrate and tone the skin. It helps to restore skin exposed to city pollutants and reduce the damage of free radicals, combating inflammation and redness. They suggest using it with their Solid Oil stick, although if your skin is not prone to dryness, the toner works well on its own as a gentle moisturiser. Lovely.
