I don’t know about you, but I never look the same from when I have just left the house versus when I am returning after a day out. That’s why I have started to rely on a few of my favorite travel-sized products that keep me looking good & feeling fresh.

Below is a list of the beauty & self-care items that I put in my bag when I know there is going to be a long day ahead. Trust me, you’ll never leave home without them again!

  • Dry Shampoo – a convenient way to get fresh-smelling & revived hair, without water. Batiste is a quick fix to restoring greasy, lifeless roots: it adds texture and body with a few short sprays! Each bottle has a subtle, clean smell and can be used on various colors of hair.
  • Body Oil – this will keep your skin glowing all day long. The AHAVA body mist is made with mandarin and cedarwood essence, plus plant oils for added hydration. This body mist absorbs quickly so use as needed to refresh skin and give it a subtle fragrance.
