In the spirit of Valentine’s Day I’m giving my toiletry bag a romantic makeover to prepare for my journey ahead. Check out the pretty yet practical beauty loot that made the cut.
Noodle & Boo All of My Heart French Milled Soap, $15, NoodleandBoo.com
I don’t always trust hotel soap as I occasionally find that they leave a film on my skin. That’s why I suggest BYOB — bringing your own bar. This holistically-made and hypoallergenic heart-shaped soap is my favorite. Plus, I don’t have to check any luggage.
Marc Jacobs Limited Edition Rollerball Trio, $38, Sephora.com
What’s Valentine’s Day without flowers? This year I’m trying a bouquet of peonies, violets and daisies. Roll-on fragrance is a must-have for any girl-on-the-go!
Essence Kiss Care Love Lip Balm, $2, Ulta.com
I can’t very well have dry lips on February 14th (or any day for that matter). So, I’m stocking up on these inexpensive tinted lip balms. I plan to stash one in each carry on so I’m always prepared.
Lush Sex Bomb, $6.50, LushUSA.com
I’ll have no problem smuggling this bath bomb through security. Good thing too! While it’s almost too pretty to drop in the tub, I’m convinced a bubble bath is the only way to unwind after a busy day exploring a new city.
Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush, $29, TooFaced.com
Whether I’m hitting the slopes or lounging poolside this is my go-to blush. The trio of colors (rose, coral and peach) makes it a just right for any skintone. In other words, whether pale or tan I can still get a perfect rosy glow.
Gillette Venus & Olay Sugarberry Razor, $10.99, PGEstore.com
This razor has a built in shave-gel bar so I don’t have to pack shaving cream! The real reason I’m sweet on it? I’m obsessed with the new sugarberry fragrance. Mmmm.
Urban Decay Naked2 Eye Shadow Palette, $50, Sephora.com
How about a bit of travel porn? This all-in-one kit may have a risqué name, but the palette is definitely PG. It’s got twelve neutral shadows – some matte, others shimmery – so I can do a day to night makeup switch without heading back to the hotel.
