Packing toiletries for travel can be a significant challenge as there are so many products to potentially take, they can take up a lot of room and they can add quite a bit of weight to our bags.
Only a week back from a month away and already thinking about packing for my trip to Thailand later this year, I've put together a list of essential items to pack and included links to some of my favourite natural skincare and makeup products.
All skincare and makeup items pictured are World Organics as I became a consultant with them almost 2 years ago. I love high-quality, effective, natural and organic products that are better for us and our environment.
11 Carry-On Skincare & Makeup Essentials
For long haul flights with multiple connections I like to be able to shower and change after the longest leg whenever possible and these are the 11 essential items I would carry with me.
All carry on items need to be under 100ml and be able to fit easily in one clear bag 20cm by 20cm.
Cleanser e.g. Vegan Certified Juniper Berry Face Wash 80ml
Face Moisturiser e.g. Vegan Certified Heavenly Rose Moisturiser 60ml
Mascara e.g. 100% Natural, Vegan Certified Black Mascara
Eye Cream e.g. Vegan Certified Replenish Revival Eye Cream 15ml
Hand Cream e.g. Vegan Certified Pomegranate & Shea Hand Cream 50ml
Deodorant e.g. 100% Natural Coconut and Lavender Deodorant Stick 82g
After showering I'd use a little of the hand cream in lieu of body moisturiser where required.
Eye-cream may not be considered essential by many but I increasingly find travel drys out my skin substantially, particularly around my eyes so I regularly re-apply eye-cream to help counteract this on long flights.
11 Checked-Luggage Skincare & Makeup Essentials
Exfoliant e.g. Vegan Certified Bamboo and Shea Face Exfoliant
Body Moisturiser e.g. Vegan Certified Rejuvenate Body Lotion 150ml
Body Bronzer e.g. 100% Natural, Vegan Certified Self-Tanning Cream 150ml
Sunscreen e.g. SPF30 100% Natural Sunscreen 82g
Leave in Conditioner or Smoothing Serum
Depending on your holiday style and location shower gel, shampoo and conditioner may be supplied in your accommodation but sometimes they are not, so it is always a good idea to pack some in your luggage. If you buy large bottles at home you can purchase some clear, small, refillable travel bottles and pour a small quantity into these to take with you.
I do not normally pack Body Bronzer but I will be going to Thailand in October and intend to use this natural self-tan in the lead up to the trip and while I'm away so I think it may become an essential item for summer holidays.
I expect air-freshener is a surprise for many readers and I have only been packing that for about 18 months. On a previous trip both my mother and aunt had packed air-freshener for our family trip and I've travelled with it ever since. My favourite is the Orange Power Orange Oil 125mL Air-Freshener endorsed by Planet Ark.
