Aysia Wright, founder of Goodebox (one of our favorite sources for discovering new natural beauty products) recently gave us her go-to travel items. Here’s what she had to say:
With airlines nickeling and diming for everything from peanuts to seat space, every ounce counts, even when it comes to the contents of your beauty bag. Make the most of your space and keep it natural with these 10 travel friendly, easy to use, multi-tasking masters:
The All Nighter Color Matched Hair Powder. Save time, water and your blowout with this color matched, all natural dry shampoo and hair powder. A must have in any humid climate to absorb excess oil & moisture and revive limp, lifeless hair without the shower, shampoo & dry time. Available in neutral for any hair color, along with Golden Blonde, Honey Blonde, Brunette, Brown/Black and Redhead.
Suntegrity “5 in 1” Natural Moisturizing Sunscreen. Replace your day cream, SPF, primer and light foundation with a single product that saves face, space and time. Rich in antioxidants, moisturizers and providing broad spectrum protection, it’s all you need. Available in three shades to suite most many skin types.
Skinfare Lotion Sticks. You’re out and about all day and don’t want to deal with a purse full of product, but also need on the go solutions for dry skin, parched lips, runway hair and other skin related challenges that can pop up, especially while travelling. These coconut oil lotion sticks are your new best friend; multi tasking masters that provide a chem-free, effective & hassle free solution to skin care on the go.
Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil. Oils can be a girl’s best friend, replacing multiple jars and bottles with just one. This concentrated, nourishing, fast absorbing oil will moisturize your face and body, shine and de-frizz your locks, sooth dry hands and help prevent a travel induced skin freak out by protecting skin and soothing irritation.
W3LL People Universalist Color Stick. You need a little color but really don’t want to pack a large compact or multiple jars and tubes, so pack a multi-tasking color stick instead. Choose from a variety of shades that work well to add color and contrast to cheeks, lips and lids. The creamy formula is weightless, leaves no greasy film and doesn’t crease. It’s like a mini magic wand.
Essence of Vali Sleep, A Bedtime Ritual. Sleep can be hard to come by in strange beds. Ease into your z’s with this lovely aromatherapy blend of lavender, marjoram, cedar wood and ylang ylang. Just a drop on the pillowcase soothes nerves and calms the mind, allowing you to drift off without too much tossing and turning.
Preserve Toothbrush. Made with a 100% recycled #5 plastic handle and new nylon bristles, it’s easy grip handle and tiered bristles will keep your pearly whites….well, pearly white. It even comes ready to hit the road with its own travel case and end of useful life plan. After three months of use, just seal it up and send it back to Preserve where they’ll recycle it into something new.
Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Cloths. Perfect for any trip, whether to the gym or Jamaica, these natural cloths treat your face to a cleanse that rivals your nightly at-home routine.
