My 6 Travel Beauty Essentials

In the past two weeks, we have been traveling a whole lot. With two road trips under our belt and a third happening soon, I realized today that I have been grabbing the exact same six items every single time I have had to pack our bags.

Usually when I travel, my skin gets irritated and dry and sometimes I even get breakouts, its not a pretty picture. I usually don't eat properly or drink enough water while traveling, and my skin suffers because of it. I don't know if this post is coming at a good time or not, but I thought that if my little bit of road trip toiletry favourites could be helpful to anyone, regardless of if its now or later, I should just write about it. Here are the items that I have been reaching for the past couple of weeks, the items that I have deemed my top six travel essentials.
1. Young Living Thieves Toothpaste.

There is nothing better than clean teeth, especially when traveling. Recently I have had the pleasure of trying Young Livings new Thieves Toothpaste and I am in love. I was eager to try it when a family member referred to it as the "toothpaste that didn't make orange juice taste bad in the morning!" I can get on board with that, and boy, I am glad I did. With a subtle taste of cinnamon and clove, I am in love - maybe its the mood I am in, ready for fall, but this toothpaste will definitely be by my side for a while.
2. Great Smelling Lotion.

I mentioned above that my skin is not my friend whilst traveling, and it is so true. I always end up with the worst of dry skin. So, as the obvious thing to do, I have been making sure that I have lotion on me constantly. This body butter has been my absolute favourite lately. Now, when I say that this body butter leaves me with soft skin, I literally mean the softest of all skin! This is a true winner.
3. Face Cleansing Wipes. 

I am about to get real with you all, I am the laziest person in the world when it comes to taking off my make - up. I know, its horrible to admit, but its the truth. At home I use a cleanser plus lotion, but on the road (and especially while camping) I just use a face wipe - and lotion! I am currently using the Nivea Gentle Cleansing Wipes and my favourite thing about it is the smell. Smells so good. And it cleanses my face, so fabulous!
4. A Great Mascara.

This has been my go to mascara for a very long time. It's easy to apply, great to use, and a staple to my make-up collection. Recently, a friend told me to put a couple of drops of Lavender Essential Oil. Not only does the lavender make the mascara smell amazing, but it also helps with eyelash growth. I am giving it a try, but overall I am really enjoying smelling lavender.
5. My Favourite Young Living Oils.

Stress Away - I love this oil. The smell really appeals to me. When I am stressed out or have anxiety (sometimes road trips giving me all of that) I place a couple of drops on my temple or on the base of my neck. The smell appeals to me as there is lime, lavender, and vanilla in this mixture - everything that I love.
PanAway - wintergreen & clove makes this a very happy Christmas smell for me.  I dab a little on my wrists as a natural perfume and when I feel a headache coming along, I place a little on the base of my neck.

6. Chapsticks!

I love chapsticks and my rule of thumb for road trips is : make sure there are chapsticks in the purse, in the car, in the diaper bag, and in any other place or bag that I am using for the trip. These four chapsticks have worked so well for me and are what is currently in my purse right. now.

Aquafina - I first found these chapsticks at a dollarstore and bought them because I knew the name Aquafina. They are one of my favourite chapsticks because a) they come four in a bundle b) they are cheap and c) they work so well!
Blistex - I stole this from my husband because its awesome.
Burt's Bees Grapefruit - Burt's is awesome, I bought this for my road trips when I saw the grapefruit scent.
Young Living Lip Balm Grapefruit - Another grapefruit chapstick? Yes, please! Another favourite.
There you have it! My top six beauty essentials for on the go! I really do hope that you enjoyed. I just wanted to let you know that I am not getting paid to mention ANY of these items, these are all my personal favourite things to bring - Just ask the Husband.
