Green Beauty Favorites for Travel

packing essentials

One of my top favorite things in the world is a warm escape, right in the middle of Winter.  Jonathan and I have made a little winter escape at the beginning of the year, every year since we have been married (half way into our fourth year!).  We haven't always made it on an airplane - two years ago we staycationed at Barnsley Resort.  This year, we are heading somewhere warm and I am SO READY.  

Jonathan and I look forward to this trip at the beginning of the year because we use the time to plan for our year ahead.  We talk about our goals for ourselves and our family.  We also discuss how we are going to spend our time and our money.  (Jonathan is pretty wise for taking me somewhere fun to talk about one of my least favorite things...the budget.) 

No matter where we stay, I like to bring my own shower items.  Even if it is a nice hotel, the products are usually ridden with heavy fragrance or yucky chemicals.  I swear, the better the hotel, the more heavy fragrance.  Yikes!  I love this Travel Shampoo + Conditioner by Rahua and Travel Hairspray by Josh Rosebrook.  Hotels typically supply makeup remover wipes these days (to avoid having your makeup on their towels) but I like to take a few of these individually wrapped makeup remover wipes - the RMS Wipes.  If you have a long travel day or late nights, The Eye Achiever Eye Serum does wonders for dark circles.  My favorite deodorant comes in travel size!  The Travel-size Agent Nateur Deodorant is perfect for your carry-on!

Lasty, you CANNOT forget the sunscreen!  These are my favorites for SPF!

Ilia Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 (I wear the shade Hanalei)

Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 (I love shades Bombora and Darlin)

Suntegrity Sunscreen for Body SPF 30
