Traveling can be hard for the beauty lover. Do you bring your normal moisturizer or a heavier-duty product in case your skin gets dry? Should you bring your weekly intensive hair mask? What about paring down your routine to fit into a 3-1-1 bag?
I asked some of the most beauty-obsessed women you’ll ever meet, beauty bloggers, for their favorite, must-have travel skin and hair products. While they might need variety in their everyday lives, once away from home these bloggers have favorite products that they depend upon for glowing skin or a good hair day!
Beauty Products to Travel With 1 of 21
What are your must have-items for travel? Everyone has their own favorite products that they must bring with them when they go out of town. I asked beauty bloggers for their favorite products for skin and hair while they're on-the-go. Do you spot your favorite product on the list?

Mini Spray Bottles and Pointed Q-Tips 2 of 21
"I always bring a mini spray bottle for fragrance, often my Travalo. Hefting around a wonky glass bottle is terrifying! I also have to have my pointed q-tips for applying or removing makeup, applying gels, touching up cuticles... They're incredibly versatile."
- Stephanie, Stephanie Louise All Things Beautiful
Embryolisse Moisturizer 3 of 21
Supergood, Paula’s Choice, and Luna Skin Savers 4 of 21
"I go the extra mile for my skin when traveling. I love my Luna! I use it both as a facial massager and a sonic skin cleanser. It does a wonderful job of removing makeup and gently exfoliating my skin without irritating my rosacea. I've been wearing Supergoop SPF 35+ Save Face Oil-Free AM Moisturizer non-stop for months now. It's amazing and doesn't ever irritate my eyes. I use Paula's Choice RESIST Super Antioxidant Serum under my daytime and nighttime moisturizers for an extra bit of skin nourishment. Finally, I need to keep my lips hydrated and Supergoop Lip balm is amazing."

Neova DNA Damage Control Everyday SPF 44 is great for my dry, sensitive skin! And for night time hydration, Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment is a must!"

Eucerin Aquaphor 10 of 21

DermOrganic Haircare 11 of 21
Coconut Oil 12 of 21
"I travel with a small container of my Dr. Bonner's or Carrington Farms Pure, Virgin, Unrefined Coconut oil because it is what I use for my moisturizer on my face (I have very sensitive skin) and because it is a staple in what keeps my skin on point. I have not needed to use foundation in 2 years because of it."
- Honey, Honeygirl's World
Kiehl’s Creams and L’Occitane Oil 13 of 21
"I always bring the most moisturizing skincare that I'm currently testing with me whenever I travel. Recently it's Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream or Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream. If I'm traveling in the winter, I want to be able to protect my skin against the elements no matter where I'm at- outside in the cold and windy climate, or inside in front of the heater- both manage to dry out my skin.
For hair, I always bring my L'Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Hair Oil. The bottle is small and tucks into my overnight bag easily. A couple pumps of this in damp hair makes my hair so soft and smooth. I also bring a blowdryer. I don't like to assume that where I'm staying will have one, and I don't like to share or wait my turn when I've got wet hair, so I always bring one with!"
- Justina, Justina's Gems

"Origins Gloomaway shower & souffle, no other shower combo gets me up & moving like it and that's needed for crack of dawn starts on trips."
- CherrySue, CherrySue Doin' the Do
Absolutely Makeup Cleaning Tissues 15 of 21
"I always bring Absolutely Makeup Cleaning Tissues so I've always got an easy way to remove my eye makeup. Cucumber is my favorite kind. I'm always sure I have mascara. Whether or not I have eyeshadow or eyeliner, mascara is a must. I also bring tinted lip balm of some sort. Hydration and color in one."
- Destany, Manifest Destany
A! Absolute! Makeup Cleansing Tissues in Cucumber, $6.99
A Girl’s Gotta Spa! Lotion and Goat Milk Stuff Lip Balm 16 of 21
"A Girl's Gotta Spa! Energizing Citrus Body Wash is amazing! Whether its been a long night of endless meetings or a late night with friends, the uplifting scent of citrus helps to wake up my senses in the morning. A Girl's Gotta Spa! Energizing Citrus Body Lotion has a blend of olive oil, African shea butter and unprocessed natural cocoa butter, smoothes, hydrates and helps to keep my skin looking amazing. Goat Milk Stuff Lip Balm is with me whether I am home or traveling, and this brand has delicious scents like Vanilla and Honey, and they are highly moisturizing."

Always Be Prepared 17 of 21
HydroShield Face Serum 18 of 21
May Lindstrom Cleanser 19 of 21
"I am completely obsessed with the May Lindstrom The Clean Dirt cleanser. It is a powder, and you activate the cleanser by adding a few drops of water to it. So basically, it is super easy to travel with! And it exfoliates really well, so I don't have to bring my Clarisonic with me."
- Brianna, Brikasia
Alterna Dry Shampoo 20 of 21
Sexy Hair Big Sexy Hair Spray 21 of 21
"I love to take a good hairspray like Sexy Hair Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray. I never know how my hair is going to act when I'm away so I always like to carry a good hair spray and volumizer just in case!"
- Noelle, XO, Noelle
