my travel favorites

*

i’m in nyc for another week of trade show fun and, as often as i do it, i like to think i’ve perfected the art of beauty travel. these are just a few things that make toting my makeup a more pleasurable experience and a couple of little luxuries that keep me calm and looking put together while i’m away from home:

brush protectors, $8 – these mesh sleeves help my makeup brushes to keep their shape and also protect them from harmful bacteria. they’re reusable and they come in all the right sizes.

pencil case, $33 – perfect for keeping lip products in check. stephanie’s sumatra print never fails to put a smile on my face!

small cosmetic, $38 – just the right size to hold my daily routine. i can easily throw it in my suitcase or in my purse for when i need the essentials handy.

la fresh beauty wipes, $5.25 – makeup remover, face cleanser, polish remover, body soother and hand sanitizer: everything you need in small, disposable doses.

bobbi brown empties, $15 – i can fit five days worth of product into these baby bottles. best of all? no leaks!

body wash caps, $0.80 – single use capsules in fourteen scents, now why didn’t I think of that?

this works deep sleep stress less, $22 – an aromatherapy blend that promotes restful sleep. a godsend for anyone who doesn’t get the best rest away from home.

do you have anything that makes traveling a little easier?

  1. I always take a hydrating mask that I apply as soon as I get to my hotel. My favorite is Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask. It can be used as a night cream as well, so you don’t have to rinse it off! And I cannot travel without Aveda Blue Oil – a peppermint and chamomile calming remedy in a rollerball applicator. I use it on the plane to help clear my head and calm my nerves, and also on the back of my neck after lugging heavy bags around when my shoulders get tight.

    • i am ABSOLUTELY ordering the aveda blue oil! thank you for the recommendation. i love hydrating masks, too – and you’re right, they are total saviors in dry hotel rooms!
