Your Guide to Essential Travel Products

It’s summertime and many of us are traveling and going on vacation. When you’re traveling, it is important to keep up your beauty routine. The most essential products you’ll need include travel sizes, a refreshing facial mist, and multi-use products. These products will help you travel with ease, while packing less and taking the stress out of maintaining your beauty routine while away from home.

Travel Essentials from beautystoredepot.com

For travel size, TSA-approved skin care, you need BioElements Travel Light Kits. Each convenient kit comes with five products covering everything you need: cleanser (that doubles as a makeup remover), toner, moisturizer, exfoliant, and overnight cream. Best of all, there is a kit for every skin type! The Very Dry and Dry Kit features products that nourish skin and buff away surface flakes like an exfoliating scrub that doubles as a mask, and a moisturizing night cream. The Combination Skin Kit contains an oil-free gel cleanser, an exfoliating peel to target pores and fine lines, and other skin essentials to balance your skin. Lastly, the Oily and Very Oily Kit contains amazing products for oily skin like an anti-aging liquid gel exfoliant that balances skin tone and unclogs pores and an overnight cream with time-released retinol that controls oil production. All the products you’ll need in convenient, reusable travel sizes!

Traveling can definitely stress out you and your skin. Whether it’s from flying or being in a different climate, your skin will need to be soothed and refreshed. The easiest way to restore skin’s moisture, while giving it a refreshing boost is by using a facial mist. Avene Thermal Spring Water is specially formulated with rich elements to soothe, calm and soften all skin types, even sensitive skin. It is naturally bacteriologically pure, so it can be applied to open wounds, razor burn, sunburn, diaper rash, almost any skin problem that needs soothing relief. This has definitely become one of my go-to products. I have one bottle for travel and one that I keep at home. I recently used it while at the lake, and after a hot, humid day, it provided the perfect cooling refreshment.

Multi-use products are also essential when traveling. They cut down grooming time while taking up less space in your luggage. Phyto Plage Moisturizing Hair and Body Wash is perfect for summer travel since it washes away any buildup of dirt, sand, salt, chlorine and sun. Though I don’t always favor 2-in-1 products, this one is great and effective because it provides the moisture and nourishment your skin needs, while cleansing your hair and not weighing it down. Another one of my favorite travel products is the Avene High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50. Available in Beige or Honey, this creamy tinted sunscreen is 100% mineral, safe for sensitive skin, won’t clog your pores, and is water resistant. The tint goes on smooth, provides light coverage, and most importantly the SPF protection you need – just don’t leave it in your car or out in the sun because it will melt.

  1. I liked the product on your website. :)

  2. Liked this product (:

  3. Question- Can a facial mist be used while wearing makeup? Will it make you look oily or refresh your powder?
    And I liked it!

    1. Great questions! One use for the Avene Thermal Spring Water is to set makeup. With its pH level of 7.5, it is meant to balance skin, so it won't make you look oily. If using over makeup, I would suggest spraying a fine mist in a moving motion so you refresh your makeup, not over-wet it. Hope this helps! :)

  4. I liked the hair & body wash. I look forward to trying the tinted compact with the SPF. You're right the spring water is a great pick me up refresher. Really Great:)
