Here's my list of a few of my favorite beauty products that I consider must haves for traveling. Some are old favorites and some are new and will definitely stay on my list for a long time. Full disclosure: No companies have provided me with any samples or asked me to promote their product and I have not been compensated by anyone for including a product on this list. This list is just my honest opinion on products I love and use.
"The ultimate pick-me-up for tired, stressed skin — Clarins’ brightening balm eliminates signs of fatigue in a flash! Instantly moisturizes and tightens facial contours so skin looks rested and relaxed. Olive and Witch Hazel extracts help smooth the skin’s surface — diffusing the look of lines and wrinkles. Soothing Bisabolol helps restore skin’s youthful glow. Also acts as a make-up base or primer for perfect make-up application and hours of luminous wear."
5. Conair Shower Comb: Some of the best beauty products are ones that are simple and are truly an asset to you whether you're at home or traveling. This comb is perfect on all types of hair, but I love it because it glides right through my thick, coarse hair without issue. Use it after applying conditioner to evenly distribute it while also getting knots out. When you're done, hang it over the shower rod, but don't forget to take it with you when you leave! I left one of mine in a hotel and was devastated for the rest of the trip. $2.99 at cvs.com.
6. Emi-jay Hair Ties: After all of the time I spend blow drying my hair out, the last thing I want is a big old dent in my hair when put my hair up in a ponytail. Emi-Jay hair ties are made from a soft and stretchy material that has been hand-dyed and knotted. Stock up with a tin of 8 and give your head a rest from the way too tight hairbands of the past and use an Emi-Jay. They have outlasted all of my other hairbands by far and they are kind on my hair. What more could I ask for? Price for a tin of 8 is $19.99 at Emi-Jay.com.
7. Nivea A Kiss of Smoothness: Nothing is worse than dry, cracked lips when traveling. The air on a airplane not only dries your skin out, but your lips as well. I was always reapplying lip balm until I came across this product. It goes on smooth and stays on plus it has SPF 10. It is also enriched with natural Shea Butter and Aloe to help moisturize lips leaving them extremely soft and looking smooth. $2.99 at walgreens.com. Nivea has other lip balms as well and some even have a hint of color if you're into that.
