The Carry On: March 2019

The Carry On: March 2019

Carry On is a monthly round up of our favourite travel items
we’d happily haul from Stansted to Seville,
Heathrow to Hydra.
Be it a functional fedora or the latest in skincare science, we’ve
probably got it in our luggage. Riffing on the adage: “If you can
think it, you can be it”, we’re saying: “If you can jam it in your
carry on… you can bring it.” Catchy.

Matcha Cleanser

Milk Makeup

An on-the-go, no-nonsense cleanser that’s also vegan friendly,
Milk Makeup’s Matcha Cleanser ticks every box. It’s compact – a
solid stick form that’ll slip easily into your hand luggage (rather
than your overstuffed sandwich bag); detoxifying – packed with
antioxidant-rich matcha green tea (hence its alien-green hue); and
paraben-free, soap-free and sulphate-free. In short, this cleanser
only contains good-for-you ingredients. For Londoners,
now that their new UK store has officially opened you can seriously
stock up. Statesiders, as you were.

Metro Tote

MZ Wallace

“Dynamic living” sounds like something that is part marketing
speak, part opt-in payment scheme you’ll instantly regret. MZ
Wallace – established in 2000 by native New
Monica Zwirner and Lucy Wallace Eustice – taps into
that jargon, but being New York born and bred, there’s no bull to
these bags. Synonymous with travel, MZ Wallace totes are
lightweight, durable and versatile. Wet wipes are their friend, and
that’s the level of pragmatism you need when you’re on the road.
The Metro Tote is foldable, rollable and packable – for once we’re
actually boasting about something we own being made of quilted

Cool Girl Barely There Texture Mist

Hair by Sam McKnight

As iconic hairdressers go, Sam McKnight peaks the list. The
nicest man you’ll find backstage at
fashion week
, Sam’s signature “done” but ever-so slightly
dishevelled look is finally within your DIY grasp. Not something
we’ve ever managed to master despite many YouTube tutorials, this
hair hero certainly makes the process more achievable. Great to
have to hand on holiday, layer with other products without the fear
of product-logged hair. It smells nice too – fresh, floral and
subtly spicey, courtesy of perfumer Lyn Harris. It’s also available
in a handy 50ml travel size.

Jade Facial Roller (Small)

Cult Beauty

Send those eye bags packing and stimulate lymphatic drainage
(sexy) with this nifty jade facial roller. Made from hand-carved
Xiujan jade, the roller utilises ancient Chinese methodology to
lessen fine lines and diminish dark circles – they also feel oh-so
soothing rolling back and forth on your fatigued face. The texture
of the stone helps to bring relief from stubborn tension headaches
if applied to your temples and is a strong endnote to your
in-flight skin regimine as your plane taxis.

Light-Therapy Glasses


Verging on chic (after all, Silicon Valley tech is in) these
light-therapy glasses are our kryptonite. Slap on these lab-like
shades (no one said wearable tech was peak fashion) post flight and
recover from jet lag two to three times faster. How? The LED
blue-light therapy device resets your internal clock to help you
adjust to a new time zone by mimicking sunlight and signalling to
your body to suppress its melatonin levels. Sync up with the goAYO
app to calculate the best time to use the glasses depending on
where you’re travelling . You can also pop them on when your
deadline is looming and you’re nowhere near done, to get you in the
