i’m about to dive into my busy travel season and after two years of making the accessories and gift trade show rounds, plus ad hoc visits to my retail accounts, i have spent a lot of time picking the best beauty products to pack. here are a handful of things that make my away-from-home beauty routine a breeze:
simple revitalizing eye roll on, $10.99
i really can’t say enough good things about this! my schedule is always nuts and i never get enough sleep so anything that energizes and de-puffs is a must have. the revitalizing eye roll on from simple is super packable and it delivers a refreshing boost each morning.
ilia balmy days lip conditioner, $24
this new-to-me balm is gorgeous. it smells like cookies and it’s the perfect texture so it can be applied under your favorite lip color during the day and you can give your lips a healthy dose in the evenings before bed to prevent the dreaded dryness that comes with hotel air.
blow pro faux dry dry shampoo, $20
i need to get as much life out of my washings as possible because i despise hotel water. dry shampoos absorb oil and plump up my hair so that things don’t look greasy on day two. i love this one because it’s non-aerosol, unscented and not at all sticky.
jane iredale zap&hide blemish concealer, $26
it never fails that i will break out while traveling. the teensiest change in my routine and my skin freaks out. i love this double-ended concealer stick from jane iredale because it packs an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory treatment on the opposite end. brilliant!
maybelline fit me! shine free foundation, $8.99
stick foundation doesn’t get nearly enough love. it’s so easy to apply and blend (straight on to the face or with a brush), plus the travel-friendly aspect is awesome. this gel-stick from maybelline is is ultra lightweight and summer-perfect with a mattifying core to zap shine.
cenoire eluo ultra sonic toothbrush, $29.99
another one i should have thought of sooner. i use an electric toothbrush at home, but always toted a manual one while i was on the road. cenoire has changed all of that with their stylish and portable option. it’s got two speeds, a protective cap and it’s pink.
julie hewett cheekie in destiny, $24
a creamy lip and cheek duo is the ultimate travel essential. this one from julie hewett adds a gorgeous natural flush to cheeks and the prettiest rosy hue when patted on to lips with my finger. it’s a sweet and simple beauty routine that always looks good.
stephanie johnson jenny train case, $75
this portable product hauler from stephanie johnson is very smart. it has elastic straps in the base to keep things in place, a large zip compartment for your makeup and a separate clear pouch for q-tips, hair ties, and other odds and ends. such a pretty way to pack!
