Hi, I'm Allyson, and I'm an overpacker—at least where beauty products are concerned. I make very organized packing lists whenever I travel, down to what earrings I'm going to wear with what dress, and I don't usually stray from said list. But for some reason, when it comes to beauty products, I lose all sense of control. I just hate the feeling of being out of town and not having the usual products that make me feel comfortable and look my best, so into my vanity kit they go.
Now, all of that said, I can't pack everything I use on a weekly basis, so I do narrow it down some, and the products do change according to the season. Since my skin is pretty dry (even more so when I travel), having the appropriate products during winter is especially important. Have a trip of your own coming up? Scroll along with me to shop the 18 beauty products I won't board a plane without.
I discovered this cream earlier this year and don't know what took me so long. My hands get extremely dry in the winter (especially when I travel) and this makes them look and feel brand new (figuratively speaking).
This is another product I've been using for years. (My favorite is Rosy Poly Rosy.) The color payoff is so beautiful and natural, and it takes two seconds to apply. It's a staple in my everyday winter beauty routine.
