Beauty Essentials I Always Pack When Traveling

traveling essentials

Hey Ladies

I have a big trip to my hometown Switzerland coming up and i figured why not share what i pack into my carry-on and my beauty must haves for these long overseas flights. Our usual beauty products can be a bit cumbersome, not to mention non-TSA friendly, so finding what to pack is always a bit rough. I am always one who has a fear of packing too little. I used to literally pack my entire bathroom cabinet when traveling. However, i became smarter and really only pack the things i know i will use. Flying is not the most pleasurable experience it used to be and can be quite stressful and tiresome which is taking its toll on our skin. I use the hours in the plane to recharge and to give myself a pamper session with some mini travel-friendly products.

Traveling Essentials

Flying is not the best thing for our skin as mentioned. The air gets extremely dry which irritates the skin at times. Here are a few things that i always pack to keep my face clean, dehydrated and fresh looking during my flight.

Makeup Remover wipes
Those a great for traveling and sometimes come with extra hydrating extracts. No need for a bathroom, just wipe all that dirt off your face.

Moisture Surge cream
I bought a mini clinique version that takes no space whatsoever and really keeps my skin dehydrated

Nuxe Face Oil
I love the Nuxe Oil so much. A multi porpuse oil for face, hair and body. Sometimes i get dry patches from not sleeping and eating the wrong stuff when traveling. Its great for split hair ends as well.

I always carry some in my handbag so of course i will be taking that with me. it gives me a great feeling and keeps my hands soft and smooth.

My number one must have! I used to have severe dry lips and traveling made it worse since its so dry. I use the medicated Blistex ones since that’s the only one that really helps me plus one from Smith’s rosebud

Traveling essentials

I like to refresh and put on some makeup before i land. We all want to avoid looking like a zombie when arriving at our destination. So here are some things i use to look pretty and rested.

Clinique Pep Start eye cream
Great Eye serum in a tube that will help those dark under eye circles from not sleeping great.

Jane Irdale Pressed makeup
This is a great makeup for on the go. Its something between a powder and a liquid makeup and comes in a compact case with a mirror.

I like to put on a swipe of lipstick which instantly makes any face look fresh and pretty

There are so many travel sized perfumes and rollerballs to choose from these days and i love to take them along on my flight so i can smell good and fresh.

Of course i wont travel anywhere without my sleep mask, earphones, socks, reading material, toothbrush and snacks. What are your must haves when traveling? Do you pack a lot of stuff? What cant you travel without?
I always love hearing your feedback and input.
