With half of our team heading out on some exciting travels this month, we thought we would share with you our favourite carry on bag essentials and hacks to help you stay organized and refined while travelling this summer!
A contact lens case
This is our new favourite travel hack and it has nothing to do with glasses! Before you take your next flight, grab yourself a contact lens case, put some drops of your facial cleanser in one side and a few dollops of your moisturizer in the other, and voila! It's the perfect solution if you won't be checking any luggage but want to have your products with you at your destination, or if you have a long travel day and want to freshen up on your layover.
We always find the air quality to be so poor in airplanes, and we were often left feeling super dry and gross when we disembarked the plane. That's why we always make sure to pack a hydrating (and relaxing) facial mist in our carry on now so that we can spritz our skin throughout the flight in order to stay fresh and feeling good. We have been loving the floral one from Kismet, with peppermint to give a little extra boost.
TSA approved liquids bag
There's nothing worse than being the one holding up the line at security, and who like having to fumble all your liquids and gels into a little ziplock bag? Thats why we were so excited when we discovered the On The Fly bag from Sephora and we never fly without it. It is made of the nicest material (instead of thin plastic like a ziplock), it has a zipper, fits a good amount of products in it, and it is TSA approved.
Turkish towel or blanket scarf
We always like to have one of these handy things in our carry on incase we get cold during the flight or want to cozy up, but it is also helpful to have for the trip because you can use it as a towel once you get to your destination.
Travel during the summer often means going somewhere hot, and you wont usually need closed toe or warm shoes once you reach you destination, but we always find it to be chilly up in the air and we like to stay cozy! That's why we love to wear our sandals when we travel, to slip them off and on easy during security checks, but we be sure to bring some fuzzy socks to slip on once we're settled onboard.
There's really no new and exciting hack to this one, we just always make sure we bring snacks. Lots and lots of snacks! Airports and airplanes can be unpredictable these days and you never know when you will be able to get food on layovers or in the sky, so we always make sure that we are prepared with some good options along for the journey.
We hope that you find these little carry on essentials and travel hacks of ours helpful, and we want to hear what some of your favourites are! Are you going on any fun getaways this summer? Do you have any travel tips you can share with us?
