Spring is here, and you know what that means. It's time to get out of hibernation and start planning your next vacay! If you're like us, the first thing you're thinking about is what to pack, because who else hates arriving at their destination only to realize they've left their toothbrush at home? And who hasn't had to throw away their favorite hair care products at the airport because they exceed the legal limit of 3.4 ounces (100ml)? If you've been there and done that, you’ll love our list of must-have hair and beauty products available in convenient travel sizes.
Oh, and like Lu, all the below items are vegan and cruelty-free. Because why would you leave home with anything less?
1. Lu Control Collection
Did you know that Lu's Control Collection comes in travel size bottles? That means you get to take the best shampoo for game-changing manageability with you wherever you go. Whether you're on holiday or traveling for work, the last thing you want is to deal with frizzy hair, flyaways, and split ends. With Control, you won't have to. Lu's Freedom and Rescue collections will soon be available in travel size bottles as well, providing on-the-go care for curly hair and damaged hair that needs a little TLC. No matter your hair type, mood, or need, you'll be able to take Lu on the road with you! And you won't have to substitute the natural ingredients, plant-based Impossible Keratin™️ formulation, and fragrant scent of Lu for low-quality or one-size-fits-all shampoo and conditioner at the hotel or vacation rental.
2. Bioderma Hydrabio H2O Micellar Water
If there's one thing we know about air travel, it's that it can dry you out if you don't hydrate. Lu will help with your dry hair, but what about your skin? Bioderma's travel-ready Micellar Water is here to keep your skin looking fresh, clean, and beautiful at any altitude. It's our go-to product for removing makeup after a long day of business or pleasure on the road.
3. Pacifica Beauty Underarm Deodorant Wipes
Deodorant doesn't represent a real travel challenge, but if you want a convenient on-the-go solution, Pacifica Beauty’s wipes can do wonders for you. Made with coconut milk and essential oils, they deliver lasting freshness that fits into your purse, backpack, or even the glove compartment of your car. And because they're free of harsh chemicals, they're great for sensitive skin.
4. hello Toothpaste Tablets
On your next trip, skip the tubes and paste altogether and opt for these handy, eco-friendly toothpaste tablets. The tablets are formulated with tea tree oil, coconut oil, and real peppermint, with no artificial sweeteners or flavors, no fluoride, no peroxide, no dyes, no SLS sulfates, and no gluten. Just bite down and chew until you get a peppermint paste, and do your thing. They'll help whiten your pearly whites while removing plaque and tartar buildup.
5. ella+mila "No More Biting" Nail Polish
Are you, or your kids, scared of flying? Or maybe you're nervous about that client meeting you're heading to. No matter the situation, many of us bite our nails when we're stressed, but none of us are happy with the result: nails that look like they were the victim of some horrible crime. ella+mila's "No More Biting" Bitter Taste Nail Biting Treatment is a nail polish that will keep your nails out of harm's way and even promotes healthy growth. The nail polish is completely harmless if you do end up biting your nails; you'll just wish you hadn't, and that's a good thing. Oh, and it works for thumb-sucking, too!
6. Mineral Fusion Mini Nail Polish Remover
After nail polish comes nail polish remover, of course. Fortunately, Mineral Fusion's best-selling polish remover is available in a travel-friendly 3oz. bottle. The gentle, acetone-free remover features a non-drying formula that works on Shellac polish, regular nail polish, & Mineral Fusion Gel Polishes without stripping or over-drying nails.
7. Murad Brighten Trial Kit
Spending time in the sun this spring or summer? Take care of those dreaded dark spots and keep your skin moisturized with the Murad Brighten Trial Kit. The total skin care kit includes a cleanser, hydrating moisturizer with SPF 30 to shield skin from damaging UV rays, and a dark spot correcting serum.
8. Byroe Golden Carrot Relief Mask
Who wants to walk into a business meeting with puffy eyes? Byroe's lightweight anti-aging eye serum depuffs and visibly firms the delicate eye area while providing plumping hydration. It helps reduce dark circles for a brighter, youthful look and infuses the skin with essential fatty acids and antioxidants that fight damaging free radicals.
