I used to not travel much (I live in San Diego and well, it is like permanent vacation here) but this year I’ve been hopping on a plane or in the car more frequently – visiting friends, traveling with my family, going to Tulsa for company training, and I’m even gearing up for a Costa Rica trip I earned, all paid for by my company, in January!
With this new travel, and not wanting to pack the whole house each time, I’ve thought hard about which beauty products I simply MUST bring with me – I’ve rounded up my top 5 picks of travel bag essentials and I hope you enjoy!

Travel Bag Essentials #1: Moisturizer
A good moisturizer is one of the best skincare products you can have, so make sure not to travel without one!
You know how your skin can feel a bit yucky after a flight or long car ride? Freshening up with a moisturizer rehydrates your skin and makes it feel awesome after hanging out in all that recycled air.
My choice: SeneGence’s Climate Control. Not only can you spritz this on so that you don’t need to even disturb your makeup, but this magic helps your skin acclimate to a new climate. It is known as “hydration in a bottle” and this full sized bottle is airline approved! $60, click here to order.
Travel Bag Essentials #2: Lip Balm
An awesome lip balm is a must for soft lips, and especially necessary if you are traveling to a new climate!
A good lip balm doesn’t contain wax, because wax simply seals in your own moisture, but doesn’t necessary ADD any hydrating ingredients to your lips, which they need. Look for a product with softening ingredients like cocoa butter, shea butter, or vitamin E.
My choice: SeneGence’s Lip Volumizer, or Moisturizing Lip Balm. I love these both equally and alternate using them each night. If you are looking for a fabulous Chapstick replacement, go for the Balm. If you want the added bonus of fuller lips without any tingling, Lip Volumizer is your best bet. Lip Volumizer, $50, and Lip Balm, $20, click here to order.
Travel Bag Essentials #3: Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C is one of the hugely popular skincare ingredients, and for good reason! It can help skin transition to a new environment which is great when traveling. The version I use contains pure stabilized Vitamin C for antioxidant protection, plus SeneShield ingredients to protect skin from pollutants and free radicals.
My choice: SeneSerum-C. This is lightweight enough to wear under your favorite moisturizer, or alone, and you are going to love the brightening effect it provides for your skin! $65, click here to order.
Travel Bag Essentials #4: Hand Cream
How wonderful does it feel to rub a decadent hand cream on?! Perk up your tired travel hands with an awesome one. Make sure to choose one with a subtle scent that won’t bug the passenger sitting next to you 🙂
My choice: SeneGence’s Hand Cream with Shea Butter. Coolest part – it reactivates when you rub your hands together or add water! $20, click here to order.
Travel Bag Essentials #5: Eye Brightener
This is my secret for looking awake and fresh, even when I’m not! An awesome highlighter will give the illusion of freshness so even though you might feel tired, you won’t look it!
My choice: SeneGence’s EyeLuminator. This combines our anti-aging eye cream with our long-wearing Pearlizer highlighter so it highlights, protects, and brightens that delicate under eye area all in one! $55, click here to order.
