It’s difficult enough as it is to fit everything you need for a weekend getaway or midweek work trip into a carry-on suitcase so when it comes to your beauty bag, less is always more. To prevent lugging around a vanity full of products, look for things that can pull double-duty; a oil for hair AND body, a cosmetics bag that doubles as clutch – you get the idea. Also, keep in mind that paring down should not mean giving up quality. Splurge on luxe minis, you and your hair will be much happier. Here are 5 travel bag upgrades you should make asap.
Butter Elixir Hair and Body Oil – This luxurious dual-use oil is a mixture of sweet almond oil, argan oil, lavender and chamomile so naturally, it smells like heaven in a bottle. Slather it on dry skin post-flight or work a little through your hair to smooth away frizz and add shine.
Baggu Large Stash Clutch in Grey Suede – This bag is equal parts convenient (aka big enough to fit everything), equal parts chic AF. If you empty your beauty products at the hotel, it makes a great day to night size clutch because it can fit a pen, notebook/iPad + wallet.
Y.S. Park Pro Pins Multi-Pack – Y.S. Park pins are great because they are built to last and don’t slip or bend. This convenient multi-pack is the perfect travel companion because it has a great mixture of pin types and customization elastic so you can be ready for any style you want.
Rahua Dry Shampoo – The applicator on this powder dry-shampoo is seriously game changing. You squeeze the bottle and the pressure releases the powder in a perfect, controlled spray. The formula is 100% natural, aerosol-free (duh), and has a delicious vanilla scent. Aside from soaking up unwanted oiliness, you can use this to add grip to a braid, or build volume.
Iles Formula Discovery Pack – The Iles Formula Discovery Pack is perfect for travel because it comes with packets of hair essentials for on-the-go use. They are good for atleast two uses and take up hardly any room at all. The set include a cleansing shampoo, nourishing conditioner, and protecting serum. The best part though, is the multi-use wide tooth comb that comes with it. In a pinch, a wide tooth comb is the only brush you need.
