Beauty Travel Packing

Here in Hawaii, summer is over. The youth are making their way back to school and of course, everyone thinks summer went by too fast. Fortunately, I was able to take a two-week vacation last month. Here is how I pack my beauty products.

First off, I had to pack my new Face Shop samples. I like to use these small samples quickly so they don’t use expired products.

For body and hair, I packed a small bar of soap, taken from a hotel I previously visited. The Dove Advanced Hair Series samples were from a subscription box. Next, I have two shampoo bars from LUSH. I love these shampoo bars because they don’t leak and get messy, they are made from natural ingredients, and they work great. Next two are hand creams which are always needed when traveling. In the small plastic container is my charcoal tooth powder. Lastly is my new hair love, Marrakesh OIL.

Yes, I have multiple makeup removers, cleansers, and treatments. I pack this way because I know I am going to use up at least half of the products within the two-week span. Some of these products are at the end of their product life so I knew I had to use them up soon.

Next to pack are my makeup items. For the two weeks, I decided to pack at least two of every kind of product. Two foundations, highlighters, concealers, eyeshadow pallets, blushes and so on.

All of my makeup products fit perfectly in my Thirty-one cosmetics travel bag. I recommend people find their perfect cosmetics travel bag.

By the end of the trip, I was able to use up and trash a little over half of the skincare products just like I had planned. Do you have a favorite travel bag you need for all of your travels? Let me know in the comments!

Ditch that Starbucks Now!

Forget about the Unicorn and Dragon fraps. Those fads are going extinct. Stick with the real Dragon, Dragonfruit that is.
Also known as Pitaya, Dragonfruit can bring lots of health benefits (see poster below). Natural flavors and a beautiful bright color, my favorite way to consume this Dragon is in a fruit bowl.

Locally, Hawaii has a bunch of places to satisfy your Dragonfruit craving. But if you are nowhere near a local smoothie place, your nearest Jamba Juice should be there for you too.

No filter needed!

 Just beautiful. 

My favorite place to get a fruit bowl of any kind is Jewel or Juice located in Kaimuki and Kailua on Oahu. HICravings is another great place for fruit bowls with awesome topping. I think I need to make a trip soon!

Please do yourself a favor and go for the real Dragon!
