These are some of my recent travel friendly discoveries, all under $20 and pretty great. They may not be carry on sizes, but they sure are small enough to toss into a small bag.
Pixi Lash Nourish Makeup Remover Pads ($10 for 80 pads; pixibeauty.com) are great for heavy duty mascara and liner before using cleansing oil or a balm. Its quite saturated and gentle, but needs a second cleanser to get rid of the residue. Definitely easy to travel with and gets rid of most eye makeup easily. They also work well on hard to get off lip colors.
Pixi Glow Tonic To Go ($20 for 60 pads ; pixibeauty.com) is a convenient way of using their best selling glow tonic, one of my favorite gentle exfoliators. Its gentle enough to use everyday and leaves skin glowing without any redness or irritation. These pads are hassle free and have a good amount of product soaked for one time use.
L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Mist ($15; usa.loccitane.com) is a nice mid day refresher mist that feels moisturizing and refreshing. It has a mild floral scent and leaves skin feeling soft and plump. It is not a makeup setting spray so I would use it sparingly on a full face of makeup, but it feels amazing on bare skin, especially on a hot and humid day.
Morgan Taylor BareLuxury Complete Pedicure and Manicure ($7 each; loxabeauty.com) is great for a quick yet pampering mani/pedi session. Each pack comes with a soak, an exfoliating mask, a sugar or salt scrub and a massage butter. Its lovely for a quick pamper session and leaves hands and feet feeling refreshed. I do wish they were slightly less scented though since the scent lingers around for almost a day.
MUA Pro Tools are a new launch, a line of affordable beauty tools that are of great quality. The Perfect Contour Eyelash Curler ($11.50; cvs.com) is great for smaller eyes and stubby lashes since it doesn’t pinch and is gentle on the lashes. The Precision Brow Set ($19.50; cvs.com) has everything you need for a quick brow grooming session and also includes a small mirror, all tucked inside a pouch. I love the tweezers too since they grab the tiniest of hairs and get the job done quickly.
