Traveling by train, plane, automobile it really doesn’t matter as long as you have some of the luxuries of home with you. Bringing toiletries that are practical and allow you to multi-task not only help you with packing but ensure you that you won’t be running all over town looking for things you SHOULD HAVE brought. See, it’s fine to me that the scenery changes and that the food may never be the same while I’m out traveling, but I have to have my staples with me: my staples are those things that I use all the time that really make my world complete. Without these cosmetics and toiletries I kind of feel stripped of my basic luxuries and I can’t go on a vacation like that. You might refer to me as a packing Diva and you would be right! Did you know that many people are like me and they like their favorite things with them, as it helps keep them calmer while getting ready to travel? Therefore the one bag that has to be packed with all the correct ‘luxuries’ is my toiletries bag. What to pack your toiletries bag is always the big question? Sometimes we have been in places where we cannot access things that we would normally buy in our pharmacy so I am quite cautious as to what I pack in there. What items fly well and are also TSA APPROVED? What can you bring on the plane? I am very reverent about finding items that I can pack for plane, train or automobile travel, while not having to change them up each time we go. There are a few brands that are TSA approved so I work from airline travel backwards as it just seems that if I can take it on a plane, it can be taken all other places. Are you ready to lavishly live packing and travel out loud and find out what to pack in your toiletries bag that can travel by plane, train or car?
Let’s Talk Hair and Travel
I can hardly remember a time when we have traveled that I have agreed with the whimsical styles my hair decides to create. It is down right aggravating to battle hair in humidity or in very dry conditions(planes) so I keep my secret weapon in my toiletries bag: Philip B Russian Amber Imperial INSTA-THICK Rocks the finishing spray world! When my hair is all Tousled from a hard day at the beach and I just need to whip it up and get out the door this does the trick. When I am on the plane, I just head to the ladies room, and spritz my hair before landing to make sure I am feeling good about the look and I am ready to go!
Did you ever notice how you seem to wear your vacation on your face? After the car ride, the plane ride or getting off the train, your face just feels covered in debris and dirty. I believe it is all in the psyche, but I give-in to the want to wipe my face down with Burt’s Bees Cucumber and Sage Facial Towelettes. My face needs to be refreshed and feel clean and I love my Burt’s Bees Cucumber and Sage Facial Ceansing Towelettes. These let my face feel refreshed and they don’t clog your pores these are perfect for throwing into that toiletries bag.
Travel seems to be quite drying and dehydrating on the skin and the Molton Brown replenishing handcream really makes a difference on how your hands will feel very soft and it will feel quite luxurious without feeling greasy. And don’t forget about the finished look after a great tan! Lauren B Beauty offers a line of polish free of formaldehyde,DBP, and Vegan Friendly with kicking color choices.
My favorite two-in-one product is Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip and Cheek Creamy Oil. This offers a tense for your lips or for your cheeks and it’s all in one little tube. This is hydrating and nourishing and it just melts into an oil for sheer, natural looking and petroleum free I love this stuff!
