My goal is to always have a well-stocked travel bag at the ready; packable, portable and chic beauty products that go the distance wherever I’m headed. I have an upcoming business trip and have just finished packing my “out of office” travel bag.

Many retailers are now devoting entire sections to travel beauty, and the category is expected to keep growing. I can’t get through the line at Sephora, stocked with travel sizes, without picking up at least one or two things. Plus, the mini sizes are a great way to try a new product without the expense (and risk) of buying the full size.

I’ve recently updated my travel bag with some new finds (you’ll also notice some tried-and-true favorites!):

The new Pixi Pretties Eye Heart Palette curated by Heart Defensor is a warm-toned eyeshadow palette with 8 versatile shades in various finishes. Super pretty, long-wearing and highly pigmented!

From the new Physicians Formula Organic Wear Collection, the Dewy Blush Elixir is a lightweight cheek color that gives a gorgeous, natural flush. I’m using Pink Berry. I really like how blendable, buildable and pigmented the color is.

I love the convenience of Urban Decay’s new The Ultimate Brush Off Translucent Setting Powder! This is perfect for on-the-go, as the brush screws right into the lid. I like how light and fine the powder is; it performs well.

Can’t miss with Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Matte Revolution Lipstick and Lip Cheat. It’s the perfect pink-nude shade that I reach for over and over again.

Taking makeup off is easy with the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Eye Makeup Remover Pads. No rinsing, no residue, no fragrance…just a high performance eye makeup removing wipe that doesn’t cause irritation. Love!

Travel can be so stressful, which is why I’m glad I discovered Sagely Naturals Tranquility CBD Roll-On. This is a blend of botanical essential oils, CBD and lavender that helps bring about a sense of calm. I roll it on my temples and wrists, and try to center myself. I love the scent and do feel that I notice an improvement in my stress level and anxiety.


I’m a big fan of Fresh® skincare, and it’s easier than ever to take my favorite products with me. Many essentials like the Soy Face Cleanser, Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Face Mist, Rose Deep Hydration Toner, Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence, are available in travel sizes. Don’t forget the Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment!

What are some of your travel beauty essentials?
