Travel is good for the soul. And traveling during the holidays to a faraway magical oasis is a treat! I'm hoping to escape to Orlando, not so faraway but definitely contains a magical kingdom my niece loves. If everything goes according to plan we should be there for the last week of December (fingers crossed).
When beaches and resorts are in my future, I tend to pack light - all I really need is a few denim shorts, a surplus of bikinis, and a cute kimono. Nope, that's a lie... I pack a little bit more than that, but not enough to check anything in - because let's be real, those check-in fees can be better spent on new reading materials and snacks.
Since my goal is not to check-in baggage, I need to make sure my beauty needs are covered and following TSA's strict guidelines. In my arsenal: I always pack Caudalie's Beauty Elixir - it's a great little spray that refreshes the face after landing. I swear by this and am sure I've written about it here before. Even if you're not traveling you can use it on the daily whenever you need a quick pick-me-up.
Next, I turn to Clinique's SPF 30 Face Sunscreen - it's crucial for me to get a sunscreen that wont increase my chances of breaking out while keeping me protected, and I find this works great for both needs.
Because I am dealing with some unfortunate hormonal acne, I pack my bareSkin foundation serum with me, and believe me when I tell you - it makes my skin LOOK so much better!! It gives great coverage while still leaving me looking natural.
Another favorite of mine that gets repacked over and over again is the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, mainly because it's the best moisturizing lotion on the market and in this size. A little goes a long way when using this which is another #winwin in my book.
I'm not the best at staying asleep or getting enough sleep, but something about being on an airplane just lulls me to sleep - but before I do, I become that crazy lady and smear on Clinique's all about eyes cream. Planes are already dehydrating machines, this is my way of preventing of looking even more crazy.
Now, what's in your beauty travel bag that gets repacked time and time again?
