Travel Size Beauty Products You Need for Vacation

Don’t Forget to Pack these Travel Size Beauty Products for Your Next Trip

Which beauty products do you pack when traveling? It’s vacation season so hopefully that means you’re going somewhere warm and fun! Because we care about your skin, we rounded up a few beauty products that will fit perfectly in your suitcase.

Hydration is key

You shouldn’t call it “skin care” if you’re not hydrating your skin. Hydrated skin is key for flawless makeup application and an overall ageless glow. Here are a few of our favorite moisturizers.

Under Eye Patches 

Long flights take a toll on your skin. After an exhausting day of travel, these Tarte Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches will hydrate and restore the delicate skin under your eyes. BONUS: They’re vegan-friendly!

Facial Spray

Another must-have for hydrated skin is a cult-favorite Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater. This spritzer is perfect for refreshing your skin during hot, balmy days.

Moisturizing Cream

Moisturizer is an absolute necessity, but most creams are bulky and take up too much space. Luckily, we found this travel-size Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream, which will save your skin after a day in the sun.

Block those sun rays, babe

We can’t stress how critical it is to protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB sun rays. No matter your skin tone, it best to wear products that have SPF that helps with protecting your precious skin. While sunscreen gets a bad rap for being too heavy, we found a few that won’t clog your pores.

Facial Sunscreen

French brand, La Roche-Posay, developed the perfect oil-free sunscreen. It’s great for acne-prone skin because the formula absorbs oil and prevents breakouts. What’s more is it includes SPF 60 for ultimate broad spectrum sun protection on scorching hot beach days.

Sunscreen Spray

Protecting your body from the sun is just as important as protecting your face. This Babo Botanicals Sheer Zinc will keep every inch of your skin covered while you beach the day away. It’s great for sensitive skin, and offers 80 minutes of water and sweat resistance. Pro-tip: don’t forget to re-apply!

Hair for it

Even on vacation, we all want our hair to look effortlessly perfect. After all, will it be a good “make them jealous, but not really” Instagram post if you had unkempt hair?! These travel sized hair products are ready to go when you are!

We LOVE Jen Atkin‘s Ouai hair products. They smell amazing, and live up to the hype.

Easy on the makeup

Packing makeup for vacation is always difficult. You need products that are compact and have multiple functions, so that you can bring less with you. Moreover, you don’t need a full beat down on vacation anyway – it’s called vacation for a reason. Here are a few essentials we thought you might need.


When we’re on vacation we love using a BB cream as foundation. It doesn’t weigh down your skin, and has the added benefit of SPF sun protection. This Bobbi Brown BB Cream with SPF 35 evens out skin tone while covering imperfections. It also brightens your skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – what more could you ask for?

We love a good all-in-one product! This Too Faced Dream Queen Limited Edition Makeup Collection is made for the girl or guy on-the-go. It includes, 24 eye shadows, bronzer, highlighter, mascara, gloss, four face powders, and a cute foldover bag to carry it all!

No chapped lips here

Chapped lips are not cute, babe! Kiss your worries goodbye with moisturized lips that have a bit of color.


This Fresh Sugar Berry Tinted Lip Treatment is a dual-purpose product. Its moisturizing formula nourishes dry lips, while providing SPF 15 sun protection. The tinted balm is buildable, so you can swipe on a little bit for a barely-there hint of color, or use a heavier hand for a more pigmented shade.
