Travel Size Beauty

nuxe travel set


With the holidays coming up there is likely a lot of travel coming up on your schedule. I’ll be heading back to LA soon for a visit and bringing a few of my new travel size beauty favourites with me. Here’s what I’m loving lately!

Nuxe Travel Set – Nuxe is one of my favorite natural brands out there and they put together this cute little travel set of their products in a clear zip-up bag. Includes a cleanser, anti-fatigue day cream, dry oil, hand cream and shower oil – perfect for dehydrated skin after a bunch of travel.

nars concealer

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – If you’re trying to downsize all the things in your make-up bag, Nars has a travel size version of their super popular Radiant Creamy Concealer. Not sure what shade you are? Pop into a Sephora store, they will take pictures of your skin and color match you on the spot.

tarte clay palette

Showstopper Clay Palette – I really try to pair my make-up bag down when I travel. I usually opt to bring a something like this palette from Tarte Cosmetics instead of little eyeshadows and other small containers.

This palette is awesome because it includes 6 eyeshadows, blush, bronzer and highlighter in one. If you have oily skin like me, the clay in the products are great for absorbing oil and reducing shine.


La Fresh Make-up Remover Wipes –  For make-up removal, I am in love with these little packs from La Fresh. La Fresh wipes are free of parabens, sulfates, triclosan, dyes, pegs, and artificial fragrances.

They are also compostable and biodegradable – and are made in California using solar energy. They slip easily into your purse or toiletry bag and the size is perfect – you don’t have to bring a whole 30-pack of wipes with you on your trip, which is what I used to do. Love, love, love these.


OSIS Mini Refresh Dry Shampoo – Dry shampoo recently entered my travel arsenal and I love the mini version that OSIS offers. It does not leave your hair powder white and absorbs very quickly. It does a great job picking up oil.

I spray it above my head (not directly on) and then I use a big brush to comb the product through my hair. Which means I style my hair once at the start of my trip and use this dry shampoo to keep it looking fresh for at least 2-3 days before I have to wash it again. It saves me a TON of time. Another trick is to spray it on before you go to bed and have the powder absorb oil overnight!


Elnett Travel Size Hairspray – This is one of my favourite hairspray brands of all time. It gives me an incredibly strong hold, but leave my hair soft and still touchable. There is no crunchiness to it. I’ve used other sprays before, but nothing comes close to an all-day hold like Elnett . Their signature spray is available in this travel-size aerosol spray.

Ole-Henriksen-3-little-wonders travel size Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders Mini Collection – I generally don’t travel with full-size skincare products. I actually keep a separate toiletry bag that I store in my suitcase that is always fully packed and ready-to-go with duplicates of my daily products.

It truly takes the stress out of packing. I’m a fan of Ole Henriksen’s skincare products and I love this travel size collection that’s priced at only $22.50 – a great deal for these high quality products. The collection includes a serum, moisturizer and night gel which left my skin feeling hydrated and looking great!
