It’s the little things that make you feel like you have your life in order. Packing your personal care items for a weekend away into a stylish on-the-go bag – an accessory you’re not afraid to show off to your travel companions – is one of them.

The right bag should be able to keep your creams, oils and other travel items – like medication and saline nasal spray (we know what planes can do to your congestion) – neat and organised.

Cee Clear large cosmetic case

Rather than hide your products away, Cee Clear makes a point of showing them off. This large cosmetic case is a minimalist take on a classic toiletry bag, made from transparent PVC with white piping and clear stitched details. It will comfortably fit your skin- and hair-care products, make-up and more, so you can ditch those single-use ziplock bags you’ve been making do with to get through airport security. There’s also a small cosmetics case that’s perfect for taking on the plane with you.

Baggu dopp kit

Baggu’s bright and fun dopp kits come in a range of kitsch patterns – including orange tree, flower-market plaid, and a bay-laurel colour block. It’s an equally good choice for a night away or the gym, or to leave at your significant other’s house. It’s machine-washable and made from recycled heavyweight nylon, so when it’s not in use, you can fold it right down and it won’t take up any precious cabinet space at home.

Etoile structured vanity case

Etoile’s vanity case is all about organisation, with its structured rectangle silhouette and removable insert. It gives you space to keep your serums, creams and oils upright, alongside all your make-up non-negotiables, and the stain-proof lining has your back regardless of whether it’s handled with care. The limited-edition Kelly Green colourway in vegan leather is on point, but it’s available in 10 other shades, including beige, burgundy and lilac. Should you like to take the kitchen sink, the Duo vanity case is a size up.

RM Williams City wash bag

This stylish set-up from RM Williams is giving masculine-cool without trying too hard. Available in whisky brown or black, the City wash bag comes in a classic oblong style, made with full-grain cowhide leather. It’s a reliable companion for every journey – regardless of your mode of transport – and will fit all the personal care items.

Kip & Co Summer Check Velvet toiletry bag

Melbourne label Kip & Co is known for its prolific use of fun patterns and loud colours, and its toiletry bags are no different. Quilted with a purple zip tassel, the Summer Check Velvet toiletry bag promises to fit all your go-to skincare items and bathroom products. It’s also chic enough to double as a clutch for the beach. We’re partial to a check this season, but it’s also available in a handful of other floral and flirty patterns.
