Travel Toiletries

Traveling is not the time to change up your skin and hair routine, but you need to be careful not to over pack. Here is what I took on my small weekend trip: 


St. Ives Oatmeal Scrub & Mask. I didn't want to spend the money on buying a small travel size of the St. Ives facial scrub, so I just took the larger size. I figured I could use this on my face, back and chest as well. I took a St. Ives product because I know how my skin reacts to it. 

Baking Soda. Baking soda is always a necessity to me. I use it as deodorant, mixed with shampoo, and also to deep clean my teeth. Sometimes I even mix it with some baby soap as a gentle exfoliant for my face. Instead of bringing the entire bag of baking soda, I just poured some in a little portion cup to save space. 

Witch Hazel. Witch Hazel is an amazing product. I like using it as a toner for my face, and also to clean my underarms with. It helps with ingrown hairs. I poured some into a travel sized bottle I purchased from Target. 

Extra Strength Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Hair Oil. This is the hair oil I use everyday. Whether I am letting my hair air dry or using heat on it, this is what I use. My hair is always pretty shiny, smooth, and soft. This still never lets me down and I have never had a problem with it making my hair too oily. 

Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. I don't use this shampoo and conditioner on a regular basis, but I love how it smells and I know how it works in my hair. I purchased the two travel size bottles, and I think you're getting a lot of product. So far I've brought this on two weekend trips, and I still have tons of product left. 

fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil. I got this little sample bottle as a freebie. I feel in love with the product. I purchased the full size bottle, and kept this little one. For traveling purposes, I transferred some of the oil from the full sized bottle into the smaller bottle. I use this oil before bed. It makes my skin so soft in the morning. 

My tip to you would be to utilize all the sample products you get. Also, buying travel sized items can get expensive, so buy your own empty containers and bottles to fill with products you already own.
