Life without my travel size beauty products would be devastating. Since I like hopping on a plane for a quick getaway, I’ve made it a point to master the essentials needed. That includes taking care of my skin aboard a flight and making sure that I still look picture perfect while at the airport. After all, you never know who you might bump into or what opportunities could pass by.
Today, I’ll be giving you a run through of my top 10 travel size beauty products. These are the products small enough to get through airport security checkpoints, and yet are are potent enough to do wonders for my skin and hair. Let’s get started!
Travel Size Beauty Products For Your Next Trip
I’ve always had a passion for travel. To me, there’s nothing that comes close to seeing all that the world has to offer. Whether its having a journey ala Eat Pray Love in Bali, or taking numerous selfies with the Eiffel Tower, traveling is one of life’s luxuries that I can never get enough of.
Since my job doesn’t confine me to a certain space, I try to take as many trips as I can in a year. That being said, I, or rather my skin, knows how dry the environment of a plane can be. Given that I like making an effort in the way I look on an everyday basis, I thought that I should do the same while in the air.
If you’ve got a trip coming up, or are curious about mini products perfect for traveling, keep reading. This article’s for you!
1. Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
Burt’s Bees Lip Balm has been keeping my lips moisturized and chap-free for 3 years. This is why I’ve officially dubbed it as one of my go-to products for winter and on vacation trips. It’s definitely one of my best buys so far.
2. Tangle Teezer
Hair tends to collect static on a plane so I like brushing my hair before I leave the aircraft. I like using my handy dandy Tangle Teezer because it’s compact and it’s an absolute superstar when it comes to detangling my hair and making it look fab on a flight. I also love how it minimizes breakage leaving almost no strands on my seat.
3. Sephora Eye Mask
I pretty much always keep my eyes locked on a screen — even if it’s on an airplane. I can’t help it. In-flight entertainment is one of my ways of catching up on missed movies and episodes. Since I know that my eyes take the strain during my binge-watching, I like putting on an eye mask before getting my Zs. It makes me feel more refreshed and leaves my under eye area feel more moisturized.
4. Philosophy Hope In A Jar Moisturizer
Moisturizer is one of the travel size beauty products I can never have enough of. Flights are notorious for leaving skin parched. The way I remedy this is by putting on moisturizer all throughout my flight. I’ve got to say, this diligent habit has been paying off big time.
5. Rollerball Perfume
Since airports can be strict with the amount of liquid allowed in purses and carry-ons, I leave my regular bottle of perfume at home and opt for a rollerball instead. It makes packing so much easier!
6. Clinique Chubby Stick
Let’s face it. Sometimes all a girl needs is the right lipstick to feel better. I don’t like putting a lot of makeup on whenever I fly, but on the days where I feel a little pick me up is in order, I swipe my favorite shade of Clinique’s Chubby Sticks on my lips. They’re moisturizing, packed with color, and one of my favorite lippies ever.
7. Nars Concealer
Concealer is one of the travel size beauty products proven to be essential on red eye flights. They’ve definitely saved me from looking like a wreck with all those sleepless hours due to jet lag.
8. L’occitane Hand Lotion
I used to neglect moisturizing my hands before, which would result in paper cuts after the flight because of how dry they would become. Now, I make it a point to put on hand cream right after I wash my hands. So far, I haven’t gotten a paper cut since!
9. Butter Nail Polish
Hauling luggage around can chip off parts of my nail polish. This is why I like keeping a bottle of my favorite color nearby. I especially love the Butter brand because of its vibrant color and how it glides on so smoothly on my nails.
10. Hand Sanitizer
I can be a total germaphobe at times so I make sure to stock up on hand sanitizer when prepping for a trip. After all, it’s always good to be hygienic while traveling, right? Better to be safe than sorry!
