Now here are my favorite personal picks for good quality travel beauty and family products…
*Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes ($3.29 at Walgreens) – Traveling facial wipe towelettes are so convenient and easy to pack and use on a trip. I especially like this brand because the wipes are biodegradable, so this is one towelette that is earth-friendly and the product is hypoallergenic and is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner, so I highly recommend these for your traveling makeup bag.
*Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Moisturizer, Olay Fresh Effects Hydrating Gel Moisturizer, Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum and Olay Regenerist Daily Treatment Night Resurfacing Elixir (all sell at Walgreens and drug stores seasonally) – If you like the very popular Olay line, then you are in luck because they have created seasonal travel sized portions of your favorite Olay varieties that are listed above. My personal favorite is the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream.
*Intellident Toothbrush Shield ($5.99 for a box of 10) – Since a traveling toothbrush can catch and store all kind of gross bacteria, this product is so smart. This breathable shield covers your toothbrush, but with a mesh shield that prevents bacteria to breed and be trapped in a toothbrush cover or case. The cover lasts for 7 days and is then disposable, which is a perfect healthy family travel item.
*Downy Wrinkle Release ($2.49 at Walgreens) – Who doesn’t need this when you arrive and unpack that clothing item that you need for your trip only to find it wrinkled and not ready to wear? Simply spray this stuff on the garment, tug and smooth and hang to dry out wrinkle free. I love that this comes in a handy travel size that works great on lightly wrinkled clothing.
*Brazilian Blowout Instant Volume Body Boost Powder ($28 at
) --- I love traveling with a dry shampoo because I don’t want to deal with washing my hair every day when I’m on vacation and this particular product won’t leave a residue. So many dry shampoos do leave a residue, so I was happy to find this talc-free brand that also comes in a handy travel size.
*Flik Flops ($12.95 at
) – For travel with kids, check out this kid invented mom approved flip flop that lights up a path for your child when they take a step. The family that created these smart shoes all had a hand in the invention. The 7-year-old thought up the idea of a shoe that lights up the path walked and helps parents see their moving kids. The 6-year-old came up with the name and the little brother helped with the testing. So cute and I love mom inventions that are family friendly. The shoes come with built-in LED lights that are incorporated into the outsole of both shoes.
*Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace portable razor ($9.99 at Walgreens) – This razor is perfectly designed for travel with the portable compact case that encloses the item and the nice small size makes this the ultimate traveling product for shaving on vacation.
*Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs ($3.99 at Walgreens) – If you want to give your legs some color or coverage on the first night of your vacation before you have time to tan, Sally Hansen now makes this helpful leg self tanner in a travel size. It also works well to cover up bruises, scars, etc.
*Revlon by Marchesa Manicure On the Go ($6.99 at Walgreens) – Walgreens beauty expert Bianca tells me that this handy manicure kit is TSA approved and the nice portable size is perfect if you plan to do your nails while traveling.
*Studio 35 Beauty Regular Nail Polish Remover Pads ($2.99 at Walgreens) – Add these handy nail polish remover pads to your manicure kit and you can truly and easily take your mani on the road with you. Each are individually packaged, so you don’t have to worry about a leaking bottle.
*Kestrel Grid Nail Care Case ($48 at
) – This pretty case holds four nail polish bottles and includes a top elastic holder to secure travel sized nail care tools.
*Colgate Wisp Brushes ($2.69 for a set of four) – These are such a smart invention because they are light-weight, portable, disposable and the toothbrush houses the toothpaste, so no need to pack toothpaste with these handy travel toothbrushes.
*Burt’s Bees Essential Travel Kit ($11.79 at Walgreens) – I think most of us are fans of the Burt’s Bees line, so this travel kit that includes body lotion, foot cream, deep cleansing cream, hand salve and lip balm is the perfect traveling companion and it is already packaged up TSA approved for you.
*ConAir Mini Pro 2-in-1 Ceramic Styler ($19.99 at Walgreens) – The perfect compact mini flat iron for hair styling on vacation. These handy hair tool creates soft waves or straight styles with one convenient easy to pack tool.
