LOVE this thread! I’m gonna be hanging out at the airport at 3am tomorrow and I haven’t actually packed anything yet… I haven’t let my mother in law know this, as she’s an anxious traveller and would probably fly interstate to force me to start packing right now this very second
I’m travelling for 3 weeks so I dunno if these minis would last that long, but they’re only intended to supplement whatever I buy in Japan, and in case I hate the stuff at any of the hotels I’m staying at.
What to pack for travelling
Fav Shampoo & Conditioner for travelling:
Seconding you on the R+Co minis!! They’re awesome. I’m using the thickening ones for my partner’s hair - my hair is basically normal and everything I’ve tried from R+Co has worked so far.
My hair tends to go best when I’m rotating between a few shampoos & conditioners for some reason, so even though I expect Japan to have nice ones in their hotels (thank you Shiseido!) I need to change it up for my hair’s sake.
Fav cleanser for travel
I have a travel size for the plane, but other than that I like to take smaller bottles of Micellar with me.
This is the one thing I always have to pack more than what I would normally go through, because let’s face it, drunk Shannon is gonna spill this everywhere… and I usually wear a lot more makeup, because selfies duh. The Hydrabio Solution is a really nice one for dry/combo skin!
OK CONTROVERSIAL QUESTION TIME!
I’ve seen a lot of people say they use up their sample sachets while they’re on holiday… but I couldn’t think of anything worse!! I only pack with me the exact routine that I’m already using, no matter how much room it takes up. I don’t want to find out the hard way that a product doesn’t work for me, while I’m on holiday, potentially without access to my favourites to fix things up.
Do you take your normal skincare products with you? Or stick to samples/travel size, whatever is on hand?
