What's in my Travel Bag | Skincare
This post has been on my mind since forever. As you guys know I love to travel, and equally, I love to take care of my skin. My skin is very sensitive, is acne prone and gets irritated with anything. Hence, it is particularly important for me to not take my skin care regime lightly, especially while I'm traveling.
Recently, I traveled to Fiji to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and I thought this would be the perfect timing to share what's in my travel bag with you guys. Fiji is a warm tropical destination, so my skincare was more inclined towards summer time instead of the winter time that's ongoing here in Australia.
In this post, I am sharing what's in my travel bag - skincare; the products that I carry with me while on a vacation. This is mainly my facial skin care edition (except the deodorant); I might share my hair care, makeup, and body care products in some other post in future. This is mainly my basic squad and there are products that I switch or add some extra stuff sometimes.
My skin type is combination (oily T-zone and dry cheeks) and acne prone; hence, the products are more inclined towards that need. Now, by any means, I am not saying that you should carry all these with you while traveling. For you, it might be just a few of these or may be a few more than these. It's a very personal choice and it varies. Hence, take this post as just a guide and plan your skincare routine for your next travel adventure.
What's In My Travel Bag | Skincare
Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Makeup Remover. I usually do not wear makeup during the day on my holidays, especially if it's a beach holiday. But in case I do, or I do during the evening, this makeup remover is the best for me to take off my makeup, even the waterproof ones like mascaras and eye liners. It doesn't tingle or burn and doesn't cause my skin to break out. The best part, I can get the travel sized bottle and not worry about transferring it to a small bottle. The packaging is safe to be carried while traveling.
Sukin Foaming Face Wash. Sukin is one of my favorite brands that I got to try after moving to Australis. I love the fact that it is mostly natural, doesn't contain harmful chemicals, sulphate-free and paraben-free, and above all, really suits my skin. It doesn't disturb my skin at all. Although it says foaming in the name, it doesn't irritate my skin.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water. Micellar waters are all the range in the beauty industry at the moment and for all the right reasons. I tried this micellar water by Garnier a few months back and have since been hooked on to it. I use it has double/triple cleanse and it refreshes my skin while taking away and last bits of makeup or products from my face. You may also check my review of the same that I shared some time back here.
Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner. Toners are really important for me. They are so multifaceted, they refresh your skin, maintain the pH, and are perfect for a quick 'pick-me-up' in your bag. Normally, I use this one by La Roche-Posay but have recently gotten hooked to Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner. It is alcohol-free and a blend of rosewater and chamomile that soothes, purifies and refreshes tired skin.
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse. Let the unending praise begin. This is one skincare product that is must for me every time - traveling or not. You can hydrate/moisturize pretty much any part of your body with this. I use it on my skin when it's dull and dehydrated, I use it on my hair, my finger tips, cuticles, elbows, toes, and everywhere else. It is so good that you guys have to try it to believe it.
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Youth Eye Concentrate. Eye creams are a must for me as I have quite dry skin around my eyes, some pigmentation and they definitely need some pampering, especially on holidays when the regular routine is a myth. I won't say this is my holy grail eye cream but it is a close find. If you guys have some suggestion for eyes cream then definitely share with me in the comments.
Sukin Facial Moisturiser. So you know by now about my love for this brand (and I'm not sponsored). :/ I can just say that their products really suit my skin and my skin has been in a really good shape with these. So this moisturizer also comes in handy, with a tube packaging it's great for travels. It's not super duper greasy, it gets absorbed nicely into my skin and keep the moisture locked for long hours.
Blistex Ultra Lip Balm SPF 30+. You gotta have your lips cared for - hydrated and protected from the harmful UV. This one by Blistex does both the jobs for my lips. It's not a fancy one but as you can tell almost nothing that I shared is fancy, I'm low-key like that! 😉
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face Sun Screen - SPF 50+. Most of all, sunscreen is a must. I cannot emphasize it more, it's already out there. You need it every single day, no matter you are out in the sun or not. This one by Neutrogena has been my favorite for years. It does the job it is meant to do, protect the skin from sun damage. It is light weight, doesn't leave any greasy, white-cast on the face, so that's a bonus.
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Medicated Gel For Acne. Must have for acne-prone skin girls. This is my must have for the breakouts that keep on happening every now and then. I apply it at night and by morning the acne actually reduces in size. It's a bit drying, hence I make sure to moisturize my skin nicely.
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Deodorant. While this is not a facial skin care product but it goes in my skincare bag. Deodorant is a must have, you don't want to have a bad body odor anytime. This one really helps in keeping any odors at bay and is also anti-bacterial.
This rounds up all the products for my 'What's in my travel bag?' while on a vacation. Do you also carry these or these many products while on a vacation? I'd love to know what your picks are for your 'What's in my travel Bag' edition, share them with me in the commenst below. 🙂
