Travel Essentials for A Sunny Vacation
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.
Our summer has been full of traveling which is out of the normal for our little family. We have been loving it thought and have loved the extra time that we have been able to spend together. I asked a few weeks/month ago what you guys wanted to see on here content wise and a bunch of you asked to see my travel essential skin care products. I was so excited to share this because I have some tried and trues plus I didn’t even think to share them with you along the lines of traveling because I travel with only my essentials and bring different things based on what the weather where I am going is. Everywhere we have been going this summer has been nice and sunny! So, let’s chat about what products are my must have essentials for when you are traveling to sunny weather!
I don’t think anyone (or their husband ha) would be thrilled to pack a massive bag full of skin care products as much as I want to pack up my entire drawer so I have anything that I might need with me. Instead I have really narrowed it down to my go to’s and my must have products that I know will really save my skin while traveling. I don’t know about you but when I travel my skin kind of struggles, it is like it knows that I am stressed out taking two little kids away from home ha. Now knowing the problems that my skin gives me while I travel I can pack the products that will help to alleviate those skin concerns.
I have been using this cleanser for years it is my ride or die! It is gentle on my skin without drying it out and keeps any breakouts away. A bottle lasts me a really long time because I don’t need to use much at a time. I absolutely love it and it is a must of mine in my nightly skin care routine!
I have been using this moisturizer since they came out with it a little while ago. I am going to say right here, right now that I love it more than my expensive moisturizers especially for in the morning. I feel like I tell every person I come in contact with about it. It truly is the unicorn of moisturizers because it not only is a moisturizer, but it also is a primer, and has SPF 25 in it too. I love that it helps protect my skin when I am outside all day especially on a vacation somewhere sunny. It is super light weight on my skin and it isn’t greasy at all which leaves me no shine and I love that. I have gone through a million moisturizers I feel like because when I wear them in the morning they make my makeup run off. This one does not! It truly is amazing and trust me you need it in your life. Plus you can pick it up at Walmart which is the best because I can grab it when I am there grabbing my other groceries!
I have chatted about this on my stories quite a bit and you babes ask me all the time what I am doing to treat my melasma that I unfortunately had show up in my pregnancy with Lettie. I have it on the tops of both of my cheekbones and above my upper lip. I started using this a little bit ago and as long as I use it every morning and night I can see a difference in my melasma lightening. I am crazy impressed with it, but consistency is key with this product.
This is a newer to me product and I am in love with it. I haven’t used a vitamin C cream before, but they truly do brighten your skin! I use this at night time under my moisturizer and love that I wake up to a brighter glow! The constancy is super thick too which I love because a little bit goes a long way.
This is a product I have used forever too. I love the way it feels under my eyes and while I don’t notice a massive difference in disappearing wrinkles or anything, I am working more toward prevention. (I don’t feel like right now I have any wrinkles) I know that if I don’t start using this and being consistent with an eye cream that one day I will look back and regret it!
No matter where I am traveling to or even if we are at home and playing in the sun these are my ride or die products, the things that I have noticed make the biggest difference in my skin. I do my very best to stay consistent with my skin care routine by doing it nightly and in the morning, but life happens too. No matter what though I always use my Discoloration Defense and my Olay Whips moisturizer. Knowing that I am protecting my skin from the damage that the sun can do is very important to me.
I would love to know what products are your must have, ride or die, skin care products that go everywhere with you! I love sharing my favorites and hearing others so I can try new things.
