It has been a busy few weeks around here! It’s not usually the norm for me, but I’ve been doing a LOT of traveling (+ solo!)! I mentioned on Instagram that I headed to Cincinatti for an event with Pampers a couple weeks ago, and am SO excited for a girls trip with some of my favorites to California this weekend! Since packing + unpacking has been on repeat, I’ve been restocking my favorite travel beauty products and thought I’d share my 5 must haves with you!
I have tried these a couple of times now and definitely give them two thumbs up! The application is so easy, you just wipe it on. They give you a really natural looking glow, which I love, instead of looking super fake or orangey. The BEST thing about them is they don’t leave that tanning smell. I’ve tried at least 5 or 6 other brands, and every single one leaves you with a weird smell! And BONUS, these wipes don’t rub off on my white sheets, which is a huge for me.
I don’t know about you, but after a day of traveling, I always end up feeling yucky. A lot of times I need to head straight to a meeting or dinner and need a quick cover up to help with that blah state. Insert travel perfume! I am obsessed with this Gucci smell. It is really subtle smell that leaves you feeling fresh, but not overbearing like you tried to hard. Haha! I love that it comes in this perfect travel size so there is no digging through checked bags, I can keep it right with me for quick use.
I’m sure most of you are aware that having babies does a real number on your hair! I’ve been really trying hard to work on getting it healthier + stronger. A good friend of mine told me about this Living Proof Shampoo + Conditioner, and after only using it a couple of times, I was so impressed with how silky soft it leaves your hair. I’m excited to see the change in my hair and update you with how it goes. I love that it comes in a travel size so I don’t have to switch back and forth if I’m not home. The travel size also comes with a travel sized deep conditioning mask, which I’ve never been able to find at any beauty supply!
I’m not sure about you, but traveling or not, makeup remover wipes are a MUST. I use them every single night before I wash my face to take off my makeup. I never did this step before, but after seeing how much quicker/easier it made getting it all off for one of my girlfriends I was hooked. I’ve tried a couple of brands and I always go back to these from MAC. I especially love them for traveling. If I have a late night I can use these quickly instead to get rid of that gross feeling instead of washing my face.
It should come as no surprise that Dry Shampoo is on the list! Dry Shampoo is a staple beauty product for me in every day life. If it’s even possible, I love it even more for traveling. If I can avoid it, I usually don’t pack all my hair products for short trips. They take up so much space, and I usually try to do carry on only. If its a quick trip, I’ll do my hair the day I leave, and keep it going with my trusty dry shampoo.
I’ve tried a lot of different travel products, but feel like these are my go to regulars. And it should be no surprise that Nordstrom is always my go-to! haha. You can never beat there free shipping and returns! I’d love to hear your favorite travel beauty products you don’t leave home without!! Cause you know I always love finding new amazing products that help make life easier!!
