Obviously the most important trick to travelling light but in style is to have a capsule wardrobe! But often what people struggle the most with is toiletries, especially with the 3-1-1 rule. So how do I manage to carry-on all my toiletry essentials? SOLIDS. That's right, I have managed to find some favorites in solid form.

Perhaps my favorite in solid toiletries are Lush's solid shampoo and conditioner bars! All Lush's products are handmade and uses all natural ingredients. Their solid shampoos are all exquisitely scented and work as well as your regular liquid shampoo. My all time favorite is the Karma Komba Solid Shampoo, delicately scented with patchouli and citrus, it is one of Lush's most popular scents. Don't forget the conditioner! Lush also offers a solid conditioner Jungle which smells fruity and contains cocoa butter to soften your locks.
Lush even makes a solid body lotion, so you can forget about having to lug around yet another bottle of liquid. King of Skin is made with a base of oat milk and lavender for wonderfully soft and smooth skin. Lush also offers a myriad of other creative products in solid form such as Bubble Bars - a single dose of bubble bath that will fill your tub to the brim with luxurious bubbles; Bath Melts - natural butters and essential oils are combined in solid form, just drop into your bath and watch it melt as it moisturizes your skin; solid Massage Bars - made with natural oils that melt onto warm skin; and also solid soaps, perfumes and lip balms.
