Travel Beauty Must Haves

I recently got back from a two week trip to Hong Kong and Los Angeles and while traveling, I realized that there are some products I couldn't travel without, so #lightbulbmoment I thought I would share this in a blogpost!

Back in March while I was in San Francisco I picked up the Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo and let me just tell you -- RUN, do not walk, RUN to your closest Sephora and buy this. It is the best dry shampoo that I have ever used and this is coming from a girl with oily hair. This makes your hair smell amazing and look amazing. The travel size is $14 and 1.3 ounces and the full size is $28 and is 4.4 ounces. This is my second bottle of this stuff and I don't think I will ever try a different dry shampoo.

I'm not going to say that the perk of this is the small size, the perk of this is the product itself!! We have all gotten off airplanes before and just felt disgusting, especially if you have traveled internationally. This is great because you can take it in your carry on, spray it in your hair and walk off the plane looking like a million bucks.

Benefit roller lash is one of the best mascaras I have ever used. I was on a big Too Faced better than sex kick for a while, but when I watched my vlogs from high school a few months back I thought "oh shoot girlfriend your lashes look amazing" and at that time I had been using roller lash. I bought the travel size because I was leaving for Hong Kong that week and didn't want to take a full size with me. The travel size is .14 ounces and is $12 and the full size is .30 ounces and is $24.

What is great about buying travel sizes of mascara is that if you like to layer up your mascaras, you can take as many as you want and don't have to worry about stuffing your makeup bag full because of all your mascara choices.

When traveling, cuticle oil may not be something that is on your list of things to pack, but let me be the first to tell you that you need to pack it. I don't know if it is just me, but my cuticles get super dry and when I am traveling the airplanes make it even worse. This cuticle oil smells heavenly and is so tiny you won't even notice that it is there. 

I always make sure to take a face mask with me when I am traveling for more than a couple days because I like to do face masks about 2-3 times a week. I wish I would have had this with me while in Hong Kong because it is so travel friendly.

I picked this up at Sephora in LA and it is a genius idea! It is from Boscia and in this little kit you get two of the luminizing black mask, one bright white mask and one green tea oil control mask. What is great about these is that once you have used it up, you just throw it away, leaving more space in your doc kit. I have used one of the black masks so far and the green tea one and I was so impressed by the results, I cannot wait to try the white one! Bosica used to be one of my favorite lines back when I first started experimenting with skincare, so I think that this has inspired me to start getting into it again.

I would love to know what you guys cannot travel without! Let me know on twitter @AbbeyFHagan
