Today's post comes from the hand of Samantha Braddy, one of the authors at She kindly offered to write a piece for my post which I happily accepted, her writing style is just beautiful. Hope you enjoy the post and let me know if you would love to see ore of her great work! 

As tempting as it is to pack an entire shelf’s worth of your favorite beauty picks, downsizing your product range will help you establish a healthy routine while traveling, without overburdening your luggage. Let’s take a look at the packing essentials for any traveling occasion that will keep your inner beautician happy and sane throughout your wanderlust endeavors.

Never skip the makeup remover

Even if you intend to use the lightest makeup you own, the Urban Decay makeup remover in a stick is all you need to keep your skin clean, fresh and well-hydrated. No rough effects and damaging ingredients, only oils brimming with vitamin E to melt away even the most stubborn lipstick while you’re still on the plane.

 Your trusty cleanser

Coming from a company that even has a collection dedicated to travel-enthusiasts, the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is a complexion-perfect combo in a neat package that can fit in your carry-on 100ml limit. It can serve as an exfoliator when combined with their cotton cloth, but even applied alone, it purifies your skin with the help of cocoa butter, chamomile and eucalyptus.

The must-have hand protection

You might live without your many creams and gels, but I for one could never leave my apartment without my J. R. Watkins Coconut Cream. Cruelty-free, which is a big plus in my book, and made with natural ingredients, even the coarsest skin will benefit from such a lightweight formula based on shea butter.

The almighty moisturizer

If your skin tends to get look dull after hours of flying, then there’s nothing quite like a spray-on refreshment for your skin in the form of This Works Spray-On Moisture. It’s pure hydration in a bottle, with aloe vera and sea minerals to keep your skin soaked in wellness. Talk about moisturizing on the go, right?

 A boost for your lashes

Handy, practical and long-lasting, the MAC’s mascara is perfect for a classy travel adventure. Go to a business meeting looking like you’ve just stepped out of a beauty parlor, or enjoy an evening out with your besties in an exotic beach bar, but this will become your go-to makeup item for every destination in the future.

Juice up your lips

Nothing can complete a look like a carefully-chosen, delicious lipstick. For those who prefer alternative fashion and bolder shades, Tragic Beautiful offers a huge range of metallic hues your inner diva will fall madly in love with. When it comes to everyday makeup, Buffy Velvetine lipstick in a neutral, creamy shade is one of the best choices for either a daily stroll or partying until the wee hours of the night.

Hair-washing reinvented

If you haven’t tried one before, you’ll surely start carrying a spare bottle with your from now on, as the dry shampoo by Batiste is what keeps your locks happy even in the sultriest of washing-free days. Spray and comb, and your do will be as good as new, no water or special treatment needed.

 Be the multi-purpose gal

She has been an inspiration to ladies all over the globe, and her natural beauty steals the spotlight wherever she appears, so who are we to take her beauty tips for granted? Made with the avid traveler and fashionista in mind, the Selma Hayek Nuance Lights will be your go-to eyeshadow, a perfect eyeliner and a highlighter stick all in one.

The practical hair care pack

Those with a more demanding mane, you’ll love the Moroccanoil travel set, or even just a single product in their travel-friendly line. All of them infused with rich, nourishing argan oil and designed to tackle the frizz in one go, they are ideal for a change of climate and strands that need extra care and nutrition while you travel. 

All-purpose wipes

A lengthy flight never stopped anybody from wearing makeup, right? Well, in that case, you’ll need travel-friendly wipes for refreshing your look and keeping your skin squeaky clean. A choice that never botches my carry-on luggage is a pack of the Neutrogena towelettes that can tackle even your waterproof mascara! Even the sensitive skin-types needn’t worry because these wipes are as gentle as they come.
