Passport? Check. Tickets? Check. Flight-approved kikay kit? Double check! There’s nothing quite like getting that euphoric feeling of wanderlust and heading off to foreign shores, or even just out of town for a local getaway. Whether it’s for business, pleasure, or a bit of both, here’s a selection of absolute travel necessities to bring on your next adventure.
Instead of squeezing all your skin care faves into your suitcase, save yourself space (and stress) by bringing along a multi-purpose skin product instead. Case in point: Shinetree’s Peel Off Refreshing Lemon & Honey Mask. Packed with witch hazel, chamomile, and honey extract, it brightens, soothes, and moisturizes all at the same time. Plus, it comes in a re-sealable and travel-friendly sachet!
Rushing to catch an early morning, sightseeing tour? Skip the shower and reach for the Toni&Guy Sky High Volume Dry Shampoo 250ML instead. This hair hero absorbs excess oil from your scalp, while also adding volume and texture to flat, lifeless hair. The floral scent makes hair smell ah-mazing and there’ll be no nasty residue in sight.
Even when on-the-go and in the air, skipping on lotion is a definite “skin sin.” Your body needs just as much TLC as your face after all. With its lightweight formula, the Shinetree Aroma Body & Hand Lotion is also a perfect travel companion. With a velvety smooth finish when absorbed, its plant-based extracts and ceramides leave skin visibly healthier, radiant, and fresh.
After hours of walking and amassing photos for your IG feed, all you want to do is snuggle in bed in your cozy B&B. Just before kicking back though, make sure your face is ultra clean. Simple’s Micellar Wipes is ideal for those with sensitive skin, but it’s also tough on dirt and makeup. So even if you forgot your face wash at home, you can doze off with no worries. Bonus: It’s a great way to instantly refresh and hydrate skin on long-haul flights, too!
Makeup brushes are a girl’s very own magic wands, so on your next trip, keep the magic alive by bringing one brush that can do it all. This dual-headed brush from long-time, local favorite, Ellana, has soft, densely packed bristles on one end for seamless liquid makeup application. Simply flip and use the other end to finish off with your powder, blush, and even bronzer.
Nowadays, we can’t seem to head somewhere without a gadget (or three) on hand. But soon enough, all those charging cables and ear bud wires end up as a tangled heap in your bag. Fret not, because you can keep the chaos at bay in a ‘snap‘ with the Chris from Mayvn. These classy, leather cable and cord organizers have an easy snap button and come in nineteen different styles.
Keep all those aforementioned essentials organized with a no-fuss pouch like the Viajecito Splash Kit. Made from waterproof, silicone rubber and featuring a water-resistant zipper, it’s perfect for a quick, beach getaway or simply keeping everything nice and dry in your hotel bathroom. Choose between sleek and chic black, or cute and colorful mint!
