Summer Travel Essentials w/ Travalo, Tocca & Tata Harper Skincare

There's about 5 more weeks left of summer (before Labor Day) and I've already been on a few trips to LA, Chicago & D.C. Traveling during the summer makes me feel like a kid again and packing my essentials now have become harder. There is no one to lug my baggage for me! So, I have learned to make sure I bring items that necessary, multi-purpose and I plan my outfits better so I don't bring too many clothes that I don't end up wearing. I'm also discovering new beauty products that I can take with me that are TSA-friendly and/or small enough to store in my carry-on!

Essentials for your travel...

Scents- If you can't bear to live without your favorite perfume and you only have the full size version, may I introduce to you Travalo. It's a refillable mini perfume bottle atomizer spray that will literally take a sample of your own perfume into this mini bottle. Always bummed that I couldn't bring my full-size fragrance, Promise Me, I always had to look for mini samples to wear it instead. No longer do I have to do this b/c this no-spill solution helps me take along my scents. Note: To clean between scents, fill a spray bottle with water. Pump the water into your Travalo and spray out. Repeat if necessary, especially if your prior scent is too strong. Personally, I would make sure the next scent is in the same note family. Don't mix! :)

SPF- Tocca Suncreen Towelettes are an alternative to apply your sunscreen w/o the bottle. I choose the face stick routine, but I've also discovered these towelettes to use for the rest of my body (arms, legs, feet, you name it!) They are natural- meaning they only contain Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, which is good, b/c I am allergic to the chemical sunscreen ingredients. This pack of 10 towelettes in a resealable package is great to toss in your travel bag- beach, bike ride, hiking, even a walk in the park!
Note: These aren't like moist towelettes! The sunscreen is a bit thick on the towelette and you still have to use your hands for an even application.

Skincare- Go Natural with TATA HARPER Skincare line. At the iFABBO NYC blogger meet up, attendees got 3 samples from her line, including the Refreshing Cleanser, Restorative Eye Creme and Hydrating Floral Essence. These mini samples are great to store in your travel case to help cleanse your face, depuff your circles under your eyes and to hydrate your skin after a plane ride. I especially love the Refreshing Cleanser b/c it smells absolutely amazing, a light grapefruit scent, that does not overdry and leaves your skin feeling its best. It also looks like pink yoghurt, but is really made of French Pink Clay to deep cleanse your pores. Note: Love the natural ingredients but is also very pricey.. $50 for 1.7 fl. oz. Keep saving for great skincare!
