I’ve been traveling a lot lately and I do my best to condense what I bring because most of the time I will shop when I’m away. ALL of the time I will shop when I’m away, lol. I love going somewhere new and looking for new skincare and makeup. I’m in no way a light packer but I’m trying and I’m working on only bringing what works best for me while leaving room for whatever new finds its way to me!
Cleanser. I’m not too set on a cleanser but I like this Skin Laundry one.
Bioderma micellar water: I use this as a makeup remover and as a 2nd cleanse. I love and swear by this stuff. It removes any extra makeup on your face without leaving a greasy residue.
Paula’s choice AHA liquid exfoliator: This stuff works the best for my skin and keeping it smooth without many blemishes. I 100% need this when I travel because I’m usually eating good food and lots of dairy which isn’t great for my skin!
Acure Blue tansy oil: I love an oil for added hydration, especially because traveling or a new environment can dry out skin. This one is light and layers well with other products.
A good moisturizer! I have a few that I go to but this is a must for me since I have dry skin. Usually I’ll bring one that can work for day and night. Lately my routine has been the Paula’s Choice, the Acure oil and a moisturizer. Simple and my skin is loving it.
Ole Henrikson Eye Cream: I just started using this but I think its a must for travel because you’re fatigued and so is your skin. This also works as a intense moisturizer on dry patches that you may have pop up. It happens and an eye cream is extra thick.
Natural Toothpaste. I never brought tooth paste when I traveled but I switched over to a natural tooth paste 2 months ago and the rashes I would get around my mouth and on my lips are 100% gone. I always had rashy lips and I just blamed on whatever lip product I was using. Nope, tooth paste because if you think about it, you get tooth paste on your lips daily! I will never not travel with tooth paste again.
Face spray. I like some sort of face spray for added hydration, a toner and for setting makeup if I need too. I brought this Trader Joes Rose toner which is great at calming redness. I also really enjoy the Mario Badescu cucumber spray.
Acne dots: You never know if you’re gonna get a zit and these are great because they’re easy to travel with / small and they work so well.
Sunscreen! Always bring sunscreen. I love the Drunk Elephant umbra Tinte.
Good cotton, especially if micellar water is your main form of makeup removing. I like these Muji ones.
