I love to travel, but you can imagine that as a beauty addict (I definitely qualify as one) I am super high maintenance when it comes to packing my beauty products. I’ve previously shared all of the stuff I bring with me when I travel, and I admit that I try to pare it down more and more each time. I have varying degrees of success at this!
A lot of the actual products that I bring with me rotate in and out, but there are a few products that have consistently been my travel companions for years! I thought that I would share some of them today.
When I get on a plane, I swear all of the moisture is sucked out of my skin. From my face to my cuticles, suddenly I am dry, dry, dry. It can take me days to recover with a regular moisturizer, but if I apply a great facial oil and then seal it in with my moisturizer, I’m back to normal in no time!
If I don’t happen to have a smaller sample/travel size of Midnight Recovery, I’ve found that Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil (buy it at Sephora or Bobbi Brown) is a slightly heavier substitute, and I get sample sizes of that oil quite frequently when I place a Bobbi Brown order. A great lower priced alternative is this L’Oreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal Facial Oil (buy it from Amazon).
Note, if you don’t have a small size available in an oil I would decant into something like this.
Eye Makeup Remover
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve travelled and thought “oh, I don’t need eye makeup remover, I can just bring my face wash.” Big Mistake. Every singe time I regret it, I end up scrubbing my eye lids like crazy with a wash cloth to get residual eye liner off. I’ve tried out a lot of eye makeup removers, but I always bring my favorite Lancome Bi-Facil with me when I travel, it removes everything!! You can read my original review here, and to get a smaller travel size I will purchase a set like these with a small eye makeup remover and usually a mascara and eyeliner to try out.
I usually wash my hair every other day at home, any more frequent than that and I get eczema flares on my scalp. Which is awesome. Anyway, being out of town with little kiddos means I have even less time for myself than usual, so I usually only wash my hair every third day instead (don’t worry, I still shower the rest of my body!) I bring a travel size version of either R+Co Death Valley or Oribe Gold Dust Dry Shampoo.
If it’s been a while since I had my color done, I’ve also been loving Gray Away, I like to have the powder rather than the spray for travel.
