The Best Travel Beauty Products

Written by Lesley Mirza

I’m in Vancouver. I’m supposed to be on vacation but am writing this post. But once I’m done, I’ll be making my way downtown to Robson Street and see what trouble I can get into 🙂 .

When going on vacation, I really try to limit the amount of beauty products that I bring. It’s hard but necessary. I thought I’d show you what made the trip to the West Coast with me this time.

L to R:

Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Mineral Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15. Perfect for evening out my skintone and it feels very silky.

Tom Ford Lip Color Lipstick in True Coral. One of my all-time fave lipsticks. How could I travel without it?

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in #37 L’Exuberante. Just received this and had to bring it along. I LOVE the colour.

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Concealer. Perfect for hiding the fact I really need more sleep.

Biotherm Beurre De Levres Lip Balm. Keeps my lips soft and smooth.

Smashbox Brow Tech in Blonde.

YSL Creme De Blush in #2 Powdery Rose. Provides a very subtle colour to my cheeks.

MAC Cosmetics Semi-Precious Pearl Mineralize Skinfinish. When I want just a touch of shimmer, I reach for this product.

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy Natural Powder Blush in Ethereal. I coordinate this blush with my pink lippie.

YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara in Noir Radical. Wow, does this mascara give me BIG, beautiful lashes!

Chanel Allure Sensuelle Parfum. This has got to be the cutest little bottle of perfume, ever!

Tweezerman Tweezers. One always needs great brows. 🙂


L to R:

Mary Kay Oil-Free Makeup Remover. I love that this product does not leave a nasty greasy film all over my eyes, but still gets the job done.

Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Eye Firming Treatment.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra. This face cream is amazing for peeps like me that have ultra-sensitive skin.

SkinCeuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50. My current go-to sunscreen for face.

Secret Natural Mineral Antiperspirant in Lemongrass Mint. Keeps me fresh, even when doing the dreaded Grouse Grind.

Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Oil-Free Sunscreen SPF 60.

TRESemme Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner. This little bottles were just the right amount for two people traveling for a week.

TRESemme Tres Two Extra Hold Hairspray.

Schwarzkopf Professional OSIS+ Refresh Dust. I hate having to wash my hair every day – this stops me having to.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum. Keeps my hair frizz-free.

KORRES Pomegranate Cleansing & Makeup Removing Wipes. Perfect for removing dirt and makeup from the day.

Philips Ladyshave Sensitive. This is a great razor. I can use it wet or dry and it keeps me fuzz-free and smooth.

Colgate Sensitive Toothpaste.

Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Hand Towelette. I’ll say it: I hate germs!

So, that’s what I’ve brought on this vacation, what would you take with you?
