Hello there 🙂
While traveling is one of my favorite parts of life, packing for traveling is not. I have always found it particularly stressful, because there is so much to think about: weather, destination, activities, type of bathroom mirror situation that I will work with … Do I need a hair dryer? The list of questions that go through my mind goes on and on.
One thing that has made it a lot less stressful for me (and gave me the opportunity to actually only travel with a carry-on bag) is that I've recently stocked up on many of my favorite travel-sized beauty products. This has revolutionized my packaging experience – I no longer have to figure out which products are TSA approved as they are already below the fluid size limit, and I put most of them in my travel cosmetic bag so they're ready to go wherever I am.
In the following, I have stated that I can not go out without skin, hair and body products and that buying in travel size has changed my life for the better.
I am not one using the term "ride or die", but if I were, I would call that texturing spray such. It's the perfect ratio of grain and hold. Also, I always get compliments for Oribes mesmerizing scent. I really would not go on a trip without her. Anti-Moisture Hairspray is well known in every climate – when moisture is in the air it helps to keep frizz at bay. When dry, this product looks just like a normal hairspray to keep things in place. I do not even have to explain why packing dry shampoo is a must. This smells great and leaves no white residue like so many. I spend a lot of time (and money, TBH) dyeing my hair, so I have to make sure I protect the color when traveling, and not some shampoo will. That's why I do not give up on this color-protective shampoo Oribe – this is my favorite brand for hair care products, if you have not found out yet. Of course you can not overlook the conditioner. Another Oribe product that I can not do without is the Restyle Spray, because on vacation you have to wash your hair over and over without washing yourself (okay, that's what I do in my normal life, but you get the point ). With this magic spray I feel my hair moisturized and cared for. At the same time, the products of yesterday are activated and the heat protection ensured. This is my Holy Grail make-up remover – it dissolves even stubborn waterproof eyeliner and mascara in one go. It's also clean. So, if you try to go into a nontoxic routine like I am, this is a great addition. A few years ago I started with my beautician with the double cleansing after instruction, which changed my skin dramatically. Biodermas Sensibio is my first choice if I have washed my face to make sure all the stains and make-up stains have disappeared. I just add a splash to a cotton ball and run it over my face (and I'm always shocked and horrified to see how much gunk is in it, even though my face feels clean). I do without washing with detergent and water in the morning and just use my Sensibio again before I get ready for the day. This cute travel version is a staple in my travel cosmetic bag. I use this serum every morning before I make my way to the day to protect my skin from airborne pollutants while soothing and healing my constantly irritated skin. Bonus: The full size bottle only has an ounce, so you can easily travel with it. If you have not tried Caudalie & # 39; s Radiance Serum, I can not recommend it enough. I find it much more effective than any vitamin C serum that I have tried to lighten the skin without irritating my sensitive skin. I use it under my make-up and wear it, if possible, even without makeup, because it makes my skin look so radiant – seriously. Unfortunately, it only comes in one size, but luckily this size is under 3.4 ounces. This 2-in-1 moisturizer contains hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5 and vitamin E to moisturise the skin, and sun protection factor 30, so I can do without the wrap-up of sunscreen for the face and rely on it for my skin to protect. This is my bronzing secret weapon – I add a few drops to my moisturizer or sunscreen and they immediately give you a natural shine in bronze. Dr. Sturm's new facial mist is the ultimate multi-tasker – it contains hyaluronic acid, which gives your skin a strong moisture boost when needed. I spray it when my skin needs refreshment all day long. I also use it as the last step in my make-up routine so you can skip the pack of your typical spray. As someone with ultra-sensitive skin and rosacea, I have never been able to use retinol despite its magical anti-aging properties. Until I discovered Shani Darden's texture reformation, which contains a gentle retinol that reduces the appearance of sun spots and redness while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. I use this product twice a week and it does not irritate my skin at all. Fortunately, you do not need a travel version because the original size is only one fluid ounce – that is, it is already TSA approved. Another multitasking product I'm obsessed with is the Powerglow Peel Pads from M-61. These pads contain both glycolic acid and salicylic acid, vitamin K, antioxidants, chamomile and lavender. I use them once a week at night and wake up with clear, radiant skin. My pores are also noticeably smaller and all the lines that I start to notice are less visible. So instead of packaging eight different products to get those results, I just put one of those blocks in my bag and my job is done here. This radiant balm can be used on the face, décolleté, legs or arms to give the skin a moist glow. This is another, which has a dual purpose than normal and travel size, and I actually throw it in my pocket when I go out for mending now. If I chose one thing that would strand me on a deserted island, it would be Fresh Beauty's Sugar Lip Balm. It is ultra-moisturizing and gives only a subtle touch of shine. I even made my friend, despite the gloss factor, because it's so good. I received this kit as a gift and has never been more grateful. Travelable body washes and lotions have recently experienced a strong rotation as they work well and the scent is heavenly. The fragrances of Le Labo need no introduction (and are very self-explanatory, why I want to travel with them). This is due to too many traumatic TSA incidents, but carrying around my full size bottle scares me. That's why I prefer to take this 15ml version with me. I use this bag to carry all my travel items – no need to worry. Okay, technically, this is not a beauty product, but it helps me get my beauty sleep on the go, so I thought I would include it (apologize for my dad's joke). I really never leave home without it.
