I’m on my way to Disney World this weekend to celebrate my 30th birthday! No, you are never too old for Disney World, but you are just old enough that you have to travel with all your skincare products! I thought this would be the perfect time to share what I carry in my travel bag when it comes to skincare. Traveling is the best time to use product samples and travel size products. That being said, these are just my travel essentials and not necessarily the stuff I use daily. They’re also in no particular order. The order of my skincare regimen is a whole other post! You can click the links below to shop for each product. Here we go!
To be honest, I mostly use this face cleanser when I travel because I’ve had a sample size for the longest time. I do love First Aid Beauty and this cleanser lathers just enough. It’s not gel-like, but more soapy and works really well.
This eye balm brightens up your under eyes and even makes them tingle. The balm feels cool to the touch and leaves your skin glowing. The downside to this product is that it is a little pricey, but it’s a good size and you will take forever to finish it so it’s worth the investment. They also have it in rose gold now, but I have yet to try that one.
I have a love/hate relationship with this primer. As a primer, it does its job and evens out my skin tone a little. I have oily skin, and I’ve noticed it helps keep a shiny T-zone under control. However, this primer is also pricey and for the size of it, I just don’t think it’s worth it. Save your money!
I’m at the age now where I have to use Vitamin C serums, and to be honest, I love it. Vitamin C serums help with brightening your skin. I haven’t been using this particular Glossier one long enough to garner a good review, but so far, so good.
This!!! I love this lip balm! First of all, it smells so good — exactly like cherries. Secondly, I love lip balms that leave a little tint on your lips. My natural lip color is very pale, so I love balms with some color and this one is perfect. Glossier has a handful of other flavors that are just as fun if you’re not into the cherry scent. Be warned – it’s strong.
If I’ve learned anything regarding skincare these past couple of years, it’s that SPF is king of the skincare world. No matter if you don’t put anything else on your face, wear SPF! I love this Supergoop! primer and sunscreen with SPF 40 because it’s so light on my skin. It’s scentless and clear and it helps your makeup stick. There’s no oiliness like other SPF lotions.
I can’t rave enough about this product. It is by far my favorite eye makeup remover and I’ve been stuck on it for a couple of years now. The gel is refreshing and easily takes off all your eye makeup so you’re not struggling with oils or rubbing your eyelashes off like you’re mad at them. To top it off, it’s so cheap! The only problem is you usually have to order it online or find it at an Ulta store because I’ve had trouble finding it other places.
“Versed” is Target’s skincare line. It’s affordable, but not super cheap. I’ve been using this moisturizer for a few months now and I love it. Like I mentioned before, I have oily skin so I’m really careful about which kinds of moisturizers I put on my face. Gel-like ones work best for me, and this is a really light one that doesn’t clog my pores.
So there you have it! These are the products I cannot travel without. If you’re on the fence about any of them, most of them have sample sizes you can try out first but rest assured, I’ve put them to the test.
