We spend our days dreaming about jetting off to the seaside on the South of France, the beaches of Thailand, or the hillside of Ireland. What we don’t daydream about are the hassles of packing along our beauty routine. I often joke I can pack my life into a carry-on because I hate checking a bag – but only bringing a carry on requires a packing finesse that takes time to master. Since a lot of our suitcase is taken up but a mobile beauty salon, it definitely helps when you start packing travel-friendly beauty products. These are some of my favorite travel friendly beauty products that are just right for carry-ons, while still being completely functional. 

Must Have Travel Friendly Beauty Products

A Portable Razor

Razors are cumbersome to pack and few of them come with travel cases and the disposables most resort to offer little in the way of a pleasant shaving experience. I received the Gillette Venus Snap many years ago as a free bonus when purchasing a regular size Venus razor. This is my absolute #1 beauty supply that I never leave home without. It fits your favorite Venus blades, is compact AND comfortable to use. There’s even a handy plastic case!

On-The-Go Facial Towelettes

Humidity, sea salt, dusty back roads, plane rides, and long hours spent in the car are all apart of travel – and they can all leave you feeling pretty grimy partway through the day. I love to carry around a packet of towelettes and I’m pretty partial to all of the “Yes To” products. The Yes To Blueberry Towelettes are 99% natural and include fruity acids of lemon and apply to gently exfoliate.

An Awesome Hair Dryer

The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer is no ordinary hair dryer. It’s lightweight and portable but more mighty than your standard full-size dryer. In addition to the usual four heat settings (constant cold, low, medium, and high), it also has 3 precise speed settings – fast drying, regular drying, and styling. But my favorite part? Magnetic attachments. Genius!

Travel Friendly Beauty Products

  • The smoothing nozzle is my every day, go-to attachment. It dries hair gently using smooth, wide air, allowing you to dry and style at the same time. It gets the job done quickly without having to go through the usual two step process or drying, and then styling.
  • The styling concentrator provides high-velocity, focused air that lets you style one section at a time – without worrying about disturbing the rest. I especially love that it has virtually eliminated the “fly away” hairs I tend to get on top of my head and in the bang area when using my old hair dryer.
  • The diffuser is engineered to disperse air evenly around each of your ringlets and simulates natural drying to help reduce frizz and improve definition. While my hair is bone straight, I’ve been able to get an easy “beach hair” look by using a small amount of mouse and then allowing my hair to dry while being “held” in a lose pile the diffuser. 

The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer helps prevent extreme heat damage to protect natural shine. Air temperature is measured 20 times every second, keeping the temperature under control.

My only “complaint” would be there is a sort of box attached to the very long power cord which makes it impossible to wind it around the handle and it does take up a little more space than I would like. But honestly the time I save and the health of my hair are completely worth it – especially when most hotels offer the cheapest and most harsh hair dryers available. The long power cord has also allowed me to do my hair in better lit parts of my hotel room, without being a slave to where an outlet is located.

4-Piece Organic Suncare Travel Set

Made specifically for sun bunnies, the Coola 4-Piece Organic Suncare Travel Set comes with every kind of sunscreen you could possibly need: a spray-on natural one that smells like coconuts, a smaller bring-with-you-to-the-beach lotion, and a lip balm—all with SPF 30. There’s also a tube of aloe-laced after-sun moisturizer to help rehab skin just in case you forget to reapply as instructed.

Criss Cross Shemergency Kit 

The Criss Cross Shemergency Kit includes 40 beauty, personal care, and style essentials are neatly arranged in interior pockets, making it perfect travel. Nail clippers, hand lotion, tweezers, adhesive bandages, pain reliever and static remover are just a few of the awesome essentials within. It even comes in a mini size. There’s also a travel specific kit that includes a sleep mask, ear buds and more.  

If you’re a beauty sample hoarder and often receive samples from your Sephora and Ulta purchases, then you can create your own custom emergency kit. I use one of the free sample makeup pouches or even an airline amenity case from one of my international travels and fill it with the different sorts of beauty samples I’ve collected. Don’t forget things like eye drops, a pen, cotton swabs and hand sanitizer too.
