Going Somewhere? Take These Travel Friendly Faves
Leaving home for a new adventure? Setting out into the yonder for a long-awaited vacation? Congrats, you deserve it! Here to help you pack perfectly, are our top picks for taking green beauty with you wherever you go.
Travel makeup is all about ease of use and knowing that what you have in your stash won’t spill or leak all over your stuff. Colour that comes in sticks and tubes that can be applied mess-free is a must for your travel bag. Pull these babies out when your plane lands for a quick touch up, or keep them close on a road trip so you’re always prepped for a selfie.
Olio E Osso Balms
Our newest balms are an on-the-road fave. Simple and effective, each Olio E Osso balm has an all natural base that combines olive and shea oils with natural beeswax and grapefruit essential oil. Pick up Olio Balm No. 1 (which is clear) to smooth lips, tame split ends, and flyaways, groom brows, and condition dry cuticles, elbows, or spots. And grab a tinted balm to add colour to lips, cheeks and eyelids, for colour to go.
W3LL People Bio Bronzer
Skin does look better with bronzer. But it needn’t be next level to cheat a little summer glow. Leave those brushes and sponges behind and throw a cream to powder bronzing stick in your bag. This vegan option is one of our faves and lends a light subtle tint to all skin tones.
Vapour Beauty Atmosphere Luminous Foundation
Going bare-faced is the traveller’s dream: showing up in a new climate where skin just suddenly looks perfect. Suddenly, we wonder why we ever thought we needed foundation! But that happens fewer than we’d like and often it’s the opposite. So reach for a coverup that is a breeze to apply. Vapour Beauty’s foundation stick is made for travelling: no mess, no spills, just swipe on, blend, and enjoy your time away.
There are a couple of things that we’re pretty sure everyone really needs when travelling. From keeping covered to keeping clean, these shortlist will be your go-to items that you reach for first when packing.
Consonant Skincare The Perfect Sunscreen 15ml
Carry-on approved, now you can take your sunscreen wherever you go for full-coverage. This SPF 30 formula is grease-free and adjusts to your skin tone for a flawless coverage that’ll take you from St. Tropez to St. John’s.
Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes
Not just for faces (though perfect for cleansing), these all natural wipes will save your day from sticky hands, sweaty palms, little messes, and tidy-ups when there’s no water source around to wash your hands or clean up a spot. Tuck a couple into each pocket of each bag so you always have access to feeling clean and comfortable.
Take a tote with you!
Leaving the comforts of home with only a bag or two to take with you is a challenge that all traveller’s face. Make sure that you squeeze in a fold-away tote that you can use to pick up market finds, tote your flip flops to the pool, or carry your daily essentials on that historic walk. We’re tote-ally into our Bando line.
Mini sizes of clean and green products mean that you can take your positive choices with you the world over. Here are a couple of our fave sets that can keep you company as you traverse places new and nostalgic.
