Travel beauty essentials for the holidays


Travel Beauty Essentials

When you add in dealing with airport crowds, making it through security in one piece, flight delays, and bad weather, you can feel like tearing your hair out.  

When I travel, I make sure that I take my favorite TSA-approved travel beauty essentials with me.  I don’t need the added stress of realizing I have forgotten something I really need.

TSA rules say that you cannot bring full-size beauty products onto the airplane. I have a few travel beauty essentials that are available in TSA-approved sizes that I bring with me when I travel.  Here are a few products that are coming with me the next time I step on a plane.

Best travel size skincare products

The combination of organic argan oil, organic aloe vera, horsetail, and coltsfoot will hydrate and soothe skin, resulting in improved skin texture and elasticity!

Not only are these products travel beauty essentials, but they also work wonderfully as stocking stuffers. My daughter loves tossing trial-sized beauty products in her backpack when she heads off to college.

  1. Great products all. They would make an excellent gift for someone who travels frequently or as you wrote a college aged student who might be sharing a bathroom in a dorm.

  2. Guess, I am on vacation right now and as I do almost always – I forgot my extensive collection of skin care – the would so be handly!

  3. I really want to try that Aubrey Organics moisturizer. I really need some good moisturizer because my skin gets so dry in the winter.

  4. I must be out of it but I don’t know how to use styling powder. It seems like it would be something for me to easily mess up:( The idea behind it is pretty cool…I just need someone to teach me how to work it!

  5. Whoever thought to create trial or mini sizes of beauty products and toiletries was definitely a genius! Who needs to lug big ol’ full sized products around, taking up valued space and energy? Especially on those hectic travel days when you have so much more on your mind then hauling your luggage.

    What a great list! Thanks so much for sharing with everyone 🙂
