10 Essential Beauty Products for Travel

Swimming, tanning, traveling and relaxing? That’s what summer is all about! But with the summer heat you have to remember to protect your skin. I have been traveling to different cities this month and these are some beauty essentials that I would suggest to bring with you on a vacation! It will leave you feeling and looking good as you roam around on your vacation adventures.

1.) Sunscreen

Shiseido sunscreen


With the summer heat beating down on your skin, you better make sure your skin is protected! It is crucial to have sunscreen as a part of your routine, especially if you will be out in the sun all day. Sunscreen will protect your skin from the harmful rays that can cause skin damage (i.e. wrinkles, sunburn,and skin cancer! ). A great sunscreen that I would recommend is the Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion.

2.) Waterproof Mascara

It’s a given that you will sweat in this summer heat! To ensure that you won’t end up with makeup running down your face, opt for waterproof mascara! You can check out Dior Show Mascara if you’re in the market for a new one.

3.) Lip & Cheek Stain


This will double as your lipstick and blush so you can pack lighter! Since you will be out having an adventure you don’t have time to reapply your lipstick. Use a lip stain for a more long lasting stay. I suggest Benefit’s Benetint for a good natural color for all skin tones!

4.) Eye Brow Gel

Don’t forget about your brows! Since you will be applying less makeup during the summer, it’s nice to pay attention to your eye brows for a change. Fill them in to keep them looking polished for a clean look. Anastasia’s Brow Fix is a great product to keep your eye brows in check.

5.) Facial Cleanser


It is crucial to wash off all the makeup after a long day of traveling. Don’t let that makeup soak into your pores because that can be detrimental to your skin. Check out Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple facial cleanser. They also come in travel size bottles that are perfect for plane travels.

6.) Bronzing Body Oil

Since you’re out and about under the sun, why not give your skin more of that sun tan glow. Sephora’s Illuminating Bronzing Oil  can enhance that tan without having to sit under the sun any longer. Don’t forget to check for SPF in the product.

7.) Leave-in Hair Conditioner

This is my favorite travel product. Since I have long hair, the hotel conditioners are not enough to work into all my hair. They leave it feeling coarse and dry. To fix this problem, I just use a leave-in conditioner. A little goes a long way and it leaves me my hair feeling silky smooth and healthy. Check out Bumble & Bumble Leave In Conditioner .

8.) Lip Balm 

Dior Addict Lip Glow

As sunscreen is used to protect skin, lip balm is used to protect your lips. For those kissable lips, make sure to use a lip balm to keep your lips hydrated. An added bonus would be to have SPF because your lips need protection from the sun too! My favorite lip balm is the Dior Addict Lip Balm!

9.) Nail Polish

If you can have fun in the summer, why can’t your nails? A bright color nail polish will instantly dress up your summer outfits. Butter London Nail Lacquer has really pretty shades for you to pick from.

10.) Makeup Remover Wipes

Makeup remover wipes are an easy way to take off makeup after a long and tiring day of site seeing. This eliminates the hassle of having to bring a travel size bottle of remover plus cotton pads. I recommend Josie Maran’s Bear Naked Wipes because it is gentle on the skin, yet effective at removing makeup.

So there you have it! Safe travels everyone and I hope you enjoy your vacation!
