Travel Beauty Essentials
We all know that traveling can take its toll—from jet lag to sleeping in a bed that is not our own, many circumstances can keep us from looking and feeling our best. But skincare should not be, and is not, something that needs to suffer during our excursions. Following is a list of essential beauty projects no one should be without. These essentials can make or break a vacation or a business trip, so be sure to keep them with you.
Maddison Makeup Bag
While Bridesmaid’s Gifts Boutique is not a site specifically dedicated to travel or beauty products, their quilted cosmetic bags make the perfect storing case for all your beauty essentials. They can be personalized to your liking as well—I received a bubble gum pink number with my initials embroidered across it. The material on the outside is soft to the touch and the bag’s deep dimensions will fit all my on-the-go beauty essentials. In addition, if you are planning a group trip, nothing makes a better gift than a matching set of cosmetics bags with each traveler’s initials!
Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo Bar
Green Ablutions’ Moroccan Oil Shampoo Bar is perfect for on-the-go haircare. Shampoo bars are compact and easy to travel with, and they dispense just the right amount of product for your hair. No more wasting handfuls of shampoo that rinse off instantly as you attempt to rub it into your scalp. Green Ablutions’ bars are eco-friendly, producing less waste than a bottle of shampoo and they can last up to eighty washes. The argon oil left my hair both feeling and smelling fresh and squeaky clean.
Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner Bar
This bar pairs perfectly with Green Ablutions’ argan oil shampoo bar, tackling both the cleanliness and the hydration of your hair. Similar to the shampoo bar, the conditioner bar saves on plastic waste, as the only packaging is the small box it comes in. The rich fresh scent of the conditioner invigorated me and left my hair lush and moisturized, ready to take on whatever the day would throw my way.
Masktini Woke Bae Whenever Moisture Spritz
Masktini creates a host of skincare products that are travel-sized and designed to provide high-quality skincare with gentle and natural ingredients that won’t irritate sensitive skin. Woke Bae moisturizes and revitalizes. I have been using a spritz here and there in the morning over clean skin to yield the best and most powerful results. The spray helps to wake me up and softens my skin for the day. The watermelon extract helps with cell renewal and the apple extract gives the spray hydration properties.
Eminence Organics Lilikoi Daily Defense Moisturizer
Eminence Organics offers products that are both natural and organic and utilize Biodynamic® ingredients. The Lilikoi Daily Defense Moisturizer’s cocoa seed extract, satsuma mandarin peel, and SPF offer protection from UV rays while hydrating the skin. Putting a layer of this on before I go out and start my day, my skin feels silky and smells fresh and floral, ready to take on the world.
Unsubscribe No Rinse Hair Wash
After a hectic day on the go, it is no wonder we will not always want to or have time to hop into the shower before crawling into a hotel bed. For those days when we need a quick refresher, Unsubscribe has us covered. Their No Rinse Hair Wash combats bacteria and sweat with clean and fresh foam that dries as it cleans. After using it on just such a day, I found the body of my hair refreshed and alive as if I had just given it a shampoo.
Goodwipes Body Wipes
After you have your hair squared away and ready for the next day, it is time to take care of the rest of your skin. Goodwipes’ body wipes are large enough to deliver a full shower’s worth of cleanliness with tea tree oil, peppermint, and ginseng. The cedar scent left me feeling refreshed and ready to settle in for the night. The individually packaged wipes make it easy to pack just as many as you need for the trip and carry them with you for use whenever they are necessary.
PURE GEL Under Eyes
Earth Therapeutics carries some different skincare products. The PURE GEL Under Eyes patches soothes and rejuvenate the skin under the eye, offering luxury as well as combatting the signs of age that show up beneath there. They are the perfect end to a busy day on the move. After placing them right above the cheekbones, sit back and relax for half an hour, allowing the hyaluronic acid to do its work.
Oxygenetix Oxygenating Hydro-Matrix
After soothing cleanses, an Oxygenating Hydro Matrix by Oxygenetix can moisturize and soften the skin. This moisturizer buries itself within the skin, offering long-lasting effects. It utilizes oxygen to help your skin and aloe vera for its antibacterial and soothing properties. It creates a soft surface that is free from a greasy residue.
A variety of OH.SO products yield a multitude of skincare benefits. Pits and Parts can deodorize areas that become less than pleasant from sweat and all the other effects of a day on the town. Buzz Kill offers clean protection from unwelcome insects while you are out and about. After Sun is perfect after a day spent under the golden rays, offering healing from any unwanted effects. Hands Sanitizer is the perfect spray to keep on you all day long, cleansing and giving a fresh scent to your hands.
AnaK also offers a variety of travel-sized products on their site, perfect for the beauty-conscious on-the-go, everything from moisturizers to toners to cleansers.
