Product Recomendations

Beauty on a Budget

I am a fun-loving person. Often loud, and I love it when people make me laugh. I'm into self-help books, beauty products, Pinot Noir, my husband Marc and my dog-child Arya, (not at all in that order :) )  


The 15 Best Travel Beauty Products

It can be tough to know what to pack for your upcoming trip, especially if you can’t find your favorite products in a travel size, or want to have a separate travel capsule you can keep packed for your regular work trips and vacations. Below is a list of The 15 Best Travel Beauty Products that will check off all the boxes for skincare, makeup, and personal care!

Take a look at the list below:



Paula’s Choice Clear Ultra-Light Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 30+ – $11

Paula’s Choice is a great brand for higher end ingredients, and the less fuss in packaging and fanciness is made up in high quality product formulation. This SPF is light and great for all skin types, especially oily & acneic skin.

Face Mist

Caudalíe Grape Water Face Mist – $18

Small enough to pack in your purse, this fine mist facial water is a go to for me and my dehydrated skin while flying. It’s also great to set your makeup, and have on hand when you’re on a tropical vacation to cool you down at the beach.

Eye Gels

Patchology FlashPatch™ Rejuvenating 5-Minute Eye Gels – $15

Not enough sleep, too much alcohol, no judgement! You’re supposed to have fun on vacation! These eye gels are great for taking away puffy under eyes and giving you a pick me up before a special event or just in your morning routine.


CeraVe Travel Size Moisturizing Lotion – $7

An all around great body and face moisturizer for all skin types. This is a must for your travel skincare capsule. 

Multi Use Moisturizer

CeraVe Healing Ointment – $12

I love this multi use skin balm from CeraVe. It can be used so many ways and in my opinion my favorite out of this list of 15 Best Travel Beauty Products because of its versatility. I pack it for my hands, and also use the vaseline like balm on my lips and elbows, and even my feet! I find it to be better than vaseline and with more healing properties, it also vanishes into the skin after about 30 minutes and does not remain on the surface like Vaseline and other products like it. 

Face Cleanser

Indie Lee Travel Size Brightening Cleanser – $11

I love this baby size skin cleanser. It’s a gel consistency and great for all skin types, even acneic skin. It has a noticeable impact on brightening the skin after just a few uses, and I have been impressed with how it also thoroughly cleanses. If you like strawberries, don’t skip this, it has a nostalgic 90’s strawberry scent you will love.


Lip Balm

Weleda Skin Food Lip Butter -$7

Avoid getting chapped lips this summer and get this lip butter! The heat can be so unkind to our skin and while we want to enjoy it as much as possible, it’s also so important to make sure we’re taking care of it at the same time.

Makeup Remover

Clinique Mini Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm Makeup Remover – $13

Holy Grail! If you are not in the habit of using a cleansing balm before your regular cleanser, get on it! Balm cleansers like this one from Clinique are intended to be used on dry skin to melt off the makeup and SPF you are wearing, and then follow through with your normal cleanser and rinse! It’s in solid form and a perfect option over a pre-cleanser oil which can make a mess in your suitcase.

Multi-Purpose Makeup Palette

RMS Beauty Lip1Cheek Glow Quad Mini – $28

There’s so much potential with this! It’s called multi-purpose for a reason! Rather than carrying loads of makeup on your vacay, why not opt for one of these to help minimize your load but more importantly, still maximize your look!



Davids Premium Natural Toothpaste – $5

Yes, yes, I know there are tons of toothpastes out there and you’re probably asking “why should I go out of my way to buy this toothpaste?” The most important aspect is that on top of serving its purpose, it is also all natural, contains premium ingredients, and is environmentally sustainable. So let me ask you, why not spend the same amount you’d spend on your regular toothpaste on something that is so much more beneficial and quality?


Odacite M552 Soap Free Shampoo Bar – $18

Shampoo bars are all the rage when it comes to travel. There are so many available now, but our favorite is the Odacite Shampoo Bar is a high end shampoo that is soap free and wont strip your hair. You’ll get the feeling of luxury and not miss the benefits of that expensive bottle of shampoo that you had to leave on your shower caddy. Try it!


Rahua Classic Conditioner – $11

Keep your hair rich and hydrated this summer with this amazing conditioner! Trust me, you won’t regret it.


Hair Ties

Invisibobble Original Traceless Spiral Hair Ties – $5

If you’re traveling somewhere with a hot climate and have medium to long hair, hair ties are essential! I carry these everywhere because it keeps my hair out of my face when it needs to be! Hot, cold, or warm, honestly, hair ties are essential all the time!

Sleep Mask

Quince Mulberry Silk Beauty Sleep Mask – $50

If you’re not yet acclimated to a sleep mask, you’ll thank me when you try it. These mulberry silk masks are soft, keep the light out, and easy to throw in the washer. It can be hard to travel and sleep in a new place, but this will help ensure you get your 8 hours of shut eye.

Daily Pill Organizer

Daily Pill Organizer – $13

If you’re like me and lose track of things, I highly recommend this daily pill organizer to ensure you’re taking all your necessary supplements/meds when you need to. It saves you the hassle of scavenging through all those unflattering pill bottles because with this, all will be together and plus, this is just really cute, and let’s be real, who doesn’t love that!?

Travel Bag

ZUCA Utility Pouches – $23

Need something to carry all these amazing products? Well, this is the bag that you NEED! I absolutely love it and the fact that I can see all my things before even opening the bag is great because I’ll know what I have and make sure I don’t forget anything!
