The key to a successful in-transit travel experience are your travel essentials to ensure that your journey is comfortable and stress-free. Whether you’re planning your weekend trips to the beach or embarking on a long-haul flight this summer, these are some must-have products! 

The Skincare Essentials

1. Cleansing Balm

Cerabalm Cleansing Balm


If there is one product you must bring when traveling it should be Cerabalm. It is a cleansing balm that not only cleanses but also nourishes and moisturizes the skin. Use it as your cleanser, mask or moisturizer. Suitable for every skin type, it offers instant, visible results by delivering a hydrated, smoother, and more even complexion. This multi-purpose balm is perfect for keeping your skin in top condition throughout your journey.

*If you spend a little too much time in the sun, put on a light layer of Cerabalm as an overnight treatment to provide instant nourishment to the skin.

2. Exfoliating Toner

D22 Toni

D22 Tonic is a glow-inducing must-have that gently exfoliates, tightens, and unclogs pores. After a long day of travel, using this toner to refresh the skin and strengthen the skin’s natural antimicrobial defense is key. This tonic leaves the skin softer, brighter, and with reduced redness, making it an ideal prep step before applying other skincare products. 

*Since birch water is one of the key ingredients, it is packed with minerals, amino acids, vitamins and antioxidants to prevent sun damage and freckles! 

3. Hydrating Mist

Biologique Recherche

Long flights and changing climates can dehydrate your skin. The L’eauxygenante hydrating mist is perfect for on-the-go hydration. It contains concentrations of vitamins A and C, which stimulate the epidermis and provide a protective veil for your skin, ensuring it stays refreshed and glowing.

*Keep it in your carry on, beach bag, purse, makeup bag, pocket; anywhere that you can, because this facial mist will be the refresh you are looking for.

4. Eye Mask

Eye Instant Stress Relieving Mask

Under-eye fatigue and wrinkles can be a common issue during travel. These eye patches are full of active ingredients to alleviate visible signs of fatigue and smooth wrinkles in just 20 minutes. These high-performance eye patches are a lifesaver for looking refreshed after a long journey.

*Save one for the plane ride and another for the hotel-mini refrigerator! Try keeping this cold before application for an added depuffing effect.

5. Broad Spectrum Sunscreen
