Multi-tasking. Surely a sixth sense for mums, something we do instinctively and under no question when we travel. Who has ever juggled carrying a baby, along with your heavy hand luggage, whilst grappling with the luggage carousel to collect your bulging suitcases packed with everything but the kitchen sink to see you through the summer? Yup – us for sure 😉
As many of us are now prepping for our upcoming summer adventures, we bring you our top travel essentials to pack in your carry-on bag to ensure a smooth and enjoyable flight for the whole family, mums included!
Detox Delight Beauty Shots (AED 150 for a pack of 6)
The beauty industry’s latest weapon in the fight against anti-ageing, these beauty shots are packed full of goodness, giving you a burst of energy to last throughout your flight and beyond. With flavours including coconut water, lime, ginger and lemon, these mini liquid superfoods taste so great that even the little ones can get in on the act too!
Johnson’s Adult Facial Cleansing Wipes (AED 25)
We can’t get enough of these cleansing wipes. Quick and effective, they are proven to remove 99% of make up including waterproof mascara! So whether you use them to freshen up at the airport or mid flight, or to wipe sticky mitts and spillages, they are a true handbag essential that should never leave your side.
All supermarkets, hypermarkets and pharmacies in the UAE
The Organic Pharmacy Discovery Travel Kit (AED 285)
If your mini ones are well seasoned travellers and are busy occupying themselves, why don’t you do the same and enjoy a little in-flight pampering? You totally deserve it mamas! This clever little kit from celeb favourite brand The Organic Pharmacy contains five best sellers designed to restore the skin. With a cleanser, toner, gel, serum and cream you can either go the whole hog or just use one or two prodcuts to freshen up. Not only does each item contain lots of lovely soothing ingredients that smell amazing, the kit is just the right size to see you through your summer holidays without being weighed down.

ClevaMama 8 Hour+ Food Flask (AED 79)
Ideal for families on the go, this food flask keeps meals hot or cold for between 8-12 hours, making it perfect for the fussiest eaters amongst us (or those not too keen on salt-filled airplane grub!) Fill it with your little ones favourite meal or snack and make life that little bit easier onboard this summer! It’s also fab to fill with fruit if you’re off to the seaside for the day, because no one enjoys mushy strawberries!
Bando Classic Agenda (AED 120)
Because lists. We can never have too many! These quirky Ban.do agenda’s are too cool for school (note: instant kudos from your kids) and are not your average agenda. PLUS IT MATCHES MY BEAKER 🙂 With tons of notes pages that you can tear out for the kids to create their masterpieces on, you can stay ahead of the game with week, month and year views, colour coded tabs and stickers – it’s pure organisational heaven.
Happy Holidays Mamas!
