I don’t know about you, but I rarely look the same from when I have just left the house vs. the end of the day. That’s why I have started to rely on a few of my favorite travel-sized beauty 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. The brands listed are cruelty-free and made with natural ingredients. Trust me, you’ll never leave home without them again!


  • Pacifica Beauty Deodorant Wipes – easy to carry and helps you smell great all day long! These underarm towelettes fight odors and moisture without harmful chemicals so your skin stays protected. They are made without aluminum, sulfates, parabens, and are 100% vegan & cruelty-free.
  • Batiste Dry Shampoo – a convenient way to get fresh-smelling & revived hair, without water. Use this dry shampoo as 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.
  • AHAVA Dry Oil Body Mist – this will keep your skin glowing all day long. The 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.
  • InstaNatural Rose Water Facial Toner -you can spray the rose water over your skin and hair, as much as you want! It can be used to reset makeup, brighten complexion, rehydrate hair, or as a fragrance. A great way to feel refreshed throughout the day.
