Sometimes all the stars align and you have the opportunity to take that one trip you have been wanting to take for so very long. My trip that checks all of those boxes is right around the corner and somebody may need to pinch me! My husband of almost 20 years and I are headed to Scotland to celebrate the milestone. This is the first trip that my husband and I have taken that we have to plan because we are usually so off the cuff so I even had to seriously pare down my skincare. Below is a sneak peek of products that I am packing up and taking with, I mean who doesn’t love miniature versions of all your favorites?!

Travel Ready Products

Just when I thought I had streamlined my packing down to the “essentials” only I add just one more product. Maybe that is a hazard/beauty of having all of these amazing products right at my fingertips!

I will be traveling with;

  • Bioderma Micellar- wipes for a quick refresh and make-up removal
  • Kiehl’s Eye Alert- because…jet lag is for real
  • Jao Refresher-hand sanitizer and deodorant refresh
  • Malin+Goetz Advanced Renewal Cream-believe me my face needs all the hydration and wrinkle help
  • Malin+Goetz Mojito lip balm-no chapped lips allowed
  • Malin+Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant-my go to deodorant everyday of the year in the most adorable mini version
  • Malin+Goetz Peppermint Shampoo and Coriander Conditioner-easy breezy clean rinse for everyday use if needed
  • Baudelaire Goat’s Milk and Honey Soap-moisturizing and luxurious clean
  • Morihata Charcoal Eye Mask-anything that helps me sleep is a major plus
  • Diptyque Philosykos Solid perfume-the perfect package for travel
  • the Beauty Chef Glow packets-don’t want to go the whole time without this product
  • Kai Body wash and lotion-the best smelling and hydrating wash and moisture for the body
  • Walker bag-a great way to carry everything and still see what’s in there
  • Umbrella-because it’s Scotland

Bon Voyage
