10 Beauty Products Under $35 to Always Travel With
Before I was on the road all the time, I absolutely loved indulging in different beauty treatments and experimenting with all kinds of makeup products at home. One of my tricks for feeling more relaxed and in my groove while traveling is bringing a little comfort and luxury from home with me on all of my trips.
The downside of constantly traveling is that you're not in the comfort of your own home every day to use all of your favorite products (or even experiment with new ones). The upside is that you can start to bring some of those goodies with you (since virtually everything comes in travel-size now) and even start taking advantage of the smaller sized items to experiment with new stuff while you're on the road.
I personally love browsing the travel sections of Sephora, Ulta, or the local drug store to get some of my favorite products. If you're looking for some inspiration of what type of beauty products you should be taking on your next trip, check out my 10 favorites right here!
Batiste Dry Shampoo
I've tried a lot of dry shampoos out there and this one always comes in first place. It's great on dark hair, it smells amazing, and it's extremely affordable!
This little kit is such a lifesaver! It has all the little things that you might forget (or not think) to pack. There's everything from a mini sewing kit, to tampons, and even pain relievers.
Biossance Rose Oil
I recently started incorporating this product into my beauty routine and I'm OBSESSED with it. The oil leaves my face radiant and glowing and it smells incredible. Highly recommend even just as a daily or nightly moisturizer.
Tea Tree Oil
If you've never used tea tree oil, you're seriously missing out. Tea tree oil is an incredible gift from the gods that gets rid of blemishes basically overnight. Anytime I feel one coming on, I dab this on and it works like magic. I love this mini set that comes with other essential oils that are fabulous for travel as well. (*Dab a little lavender on your wrists or your pillow at night for soothing sleep!)
bh Cosmetic Contour Palette
I used to lug around my big makeup bag with me when I traveled, and then I found this amazing contour palette that has pretty much everything I need in 1 thin, compact space. Traveling with this has made my life so much easier and saved a lot of room in my bag!
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with SPF
I love using tinted moisturizer because it gives you that nice touch of color that your complexion is yearning for in the morning. Laura Mercier's is my favorite and I love that it has SPF in it!
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask
When you're traveling frequently, your face is prone to a lot of things that are really harsh on your skin. I love rejuvenating my skin every week with a good facial mask. Oatmeal, mud, and charcoal are my personal favorites. There are lots of masks that you can buy individual packs of, which are great for travel!
The one and only. I've been using these wipes for years and I'll probably never use anything else. Gets the job done and makes my skin feel fresh afterwards.
L'oreal Sublime Bronze Tan Towels
In recent years, I've been making an effort to protect my skin more and stay out of the sun for prolonged periods of time. However, to avoid looking whiter than a sheet of paper, I love these L'Oreal tan towels because they give me a nice glow without having to be in the sun for a day. I'll usually use 1 towel before bed and shower it off in the morning.
Nail Polish Remover Pads
Another way to give yourself a little luxury on the road without paying tons of money at the salon is to give yourself an at-home mani/pedi. I always travel with my favorite nail color and a couple of polish remover pads like these so I can change it up whenever I want.
The best tip for testing out new beauty products for travel is to browse the travel sections of your favorite stores and pick up some new things to test out on your trips (or at home!).
