I’m not a big beauty products fanatic. Most of the time whatever I find at the bottom of an event gift bag is what ends up on my bathroom counter. But when prepping for a trip there are a few things I can’t live without.  They’re nothing fancy mind you but boy do they work!

My Travel Beauty Essentials

Travel Beauty Essentials at Drugstore Prices - Neutrogena Shine Control Primer, 1 Ounce

Neutrogena Shine Control Primer, 1 Ounce

There are very lucky women who go about their day with a glow and those whose skin looks greasy within 20 minutes. I am (she says with a sigh) part of the latter group. If it’s a hot humid day, heaven help me. With our without makeup, dabbing this powdery, mattifying gel on my t-zone (forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin), helps me look fresher, longer, instead of someone who resembles a runner at the end of a marathon.

Garnier SkinActive Clean + Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towelettes 25 ea -

 Garnier Skincare Cleanser The Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towelette, 25 count (5.9 in x 7.8 in)

Easier than lugging around a bottle of facial cleanser, Garnier wipes are perfect for taking off makeup and hard to remove mascara. Its formula is strong enough to cut through layers of SPF so you don’t break out, but gentle enough for my sensitive skin. On the road when a shower is hours away it’s perfect for a midday freshen up or when a sponge bath is in order.

Buy on Amazon: $4.49


 

Burt's Bees 100% Natural All-Weather SPF15 Moisturizing Lip Balm, 2 Count - Travel Beauty Essentials at Drugstore Prices

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural All-Weather SPF15 Moisturizing Lip Balm,(Pack of 2)

Inexpensive but wonderful with a little  the perfect balm for those moments when your lips are screaming “Help me!” I stash multiple tubes in my jacket, carry on and camera bags. Tip: When my eyebrows get a little unruly on the road, I tab a little lip balm on my brows and shape. It keeps my stray hairs in place without looking glued to my forehead.

Buy on Amazon: $6.55


5 best drugstore beauty products I always take with me when I travel. 

St. Ives Fresh Skin Invigorating Apricot Scrub Unisex 1 oz (Pack of 2)

At home, I use an electronic cleansing brush in the shower but it’s not inconvenient to take on the road. Cue my travel-size tube of Apricot Facial Scrub. Particular delightful in hot or dusty climates, nothing feels better than scrubbing off the dirt and sweat that accumulates on your skin after a long day’s adventure.

Buy on Amazon: $7.71


Travel Beauty Essentials at Drugstore Prices - Gold Bond Ultimate Ultimate Healing Lotion, Aloe 1 oz (Pack of 2)

Gold Bond Ultimate Ultimate Healing Lotion, Aloe 1 oz (Pack of 2)

Simply my favorite, and, woohoo, it’s not expensive. Thick and velvety, I love the way my body instantly feel silky and hydrated without a greasy residue, and at one ounce it’s TSA compliant.

Buy on Amazon: $4.72


Travel Beauty Essentials You Can Buy at the Drugstore - Neutragena Age Face Shield

Neutrogena Age Shield (face)

At this point, hopefully, everyone understands that exposure to the sun is not in our best interests. Not if we want skin that doesn’t look 100 years old when we’re 50, or to avoid possible melanoma. I like Neutrogena’s Age Shield because it’s oil-free (I have enough oil in my face (see #1) and doesn’t feel goopy when I put it on.

Buy on Amazon: $7.59


Travel Beauty Essentials at Drugstore Prices - Contigo Autospout Ashland Water Bottle, 24oz

Contigo Autospout Ashland Water Bottle, 24oz

Good hydration is an important part of anyone’s beauty regime which is why I consider it one of my travel beauty essentials. But don’t opt for plastic on-off bottles, bring your own container and fill at will.
