Here’s a short list of travel accessories for women that I find to be very helpful to have while traveling. Whether that be a weekend trip to another city, an overnight greyhound, or months abroad. Check out these 7 great additions to your own packing list, or make them gifts for a friend!
PricePoint: Less than $20.00 each!
This particular sleep mask is more sanitary than your average mask since this one is washable, which can be a concern to those with acne problems or oily skin. The soft cotton doesn’t leave marks on your face (my biggest pet peeve when it comes to sleep masks), and the cushion on the nose is super comfy and blocks out all light. I had my doubts when I purchased this because as sleep masks go I hadn’t had the best of luck, but I read several of the reviews (the majority being 5 stars) and for it’s price I thought it was worth a try! I’m so happy that I did, I love this mask and it’s carrying case. Tiny and lightweight – perfect for travel!
This travel size electric toothbrush comes in several different colors, or you can choose a specific destination – the one picture above is Hawaii themed. You can also purchase traveling cases (hard and soft), different toothbrush heads, and other accessories separately. This is a top-rated toothbrush, fashionable and the perfect size for tossing in your pack and taking off! Give your daily toothbrush a vacation too, and leave it at home while you take your Violife Slim wherever you go!
BOCTOP 10 in 1 Stainless Steel Nail Clippers set & Nail Care Personal Manicure Pedicure Set For Manicure, Pedicure, Home and Travel
This compact case is stylish, compact, and practical. It has everything you could possibly need for daily finger and toenail care. Dirty nails? Hangnails? Cuticle build up? No worries! This case includes a pair of scissors to cut small things; threads, plastic ties, etc. Also has a nail file of course, and tweezers. Standard size elastic bands keep all tools from moving around within the case, and if the tweezers ever get dull (somehow I find that tweezers do – how does that even happen?!) then you can also replace them separately and easily slide your new pair into it’s specific spot.
You’re out in warm weather, sportin’ your flip flops and taking a bunch of photo’s and it dawns on you that your nail polish is a month old and lookin haggard! Who wants to locate cotton balls and a bottle of nail polish remover? Better yet, who wants to lug it around with them just for the one or two times it may be used during a trip? And on top of that — think of your hostel mates, who wants to smell those strong acetone fumes when you pop that bottle open and start going to town on your nails!? I’ll answer all of those questions with two words: No one! Take advantage of these Cutex Nail Polish Remover Pads. Easily stowed away in your purse or pack, odor-free, and one wipe will suffice for all ten of your nails. I love these and take them with me whenever I know I’ll be gone for a month or longer.
These are fantastic for a few occasions – Wine tasting? Obviously! Fancy dinner? Yep! Just chillin at a friends house drinking wine and binge-watching Netflix? Certainly! When it comes to wine, I’m mainly a white wine drinker so these aren’t such an immediate need for me in most wine drinking situations. However, they are great just to clean my teeth when I’m away from home and unable to take the time to brush. Keep these handy little wipes in your purse (or pack if you’re traveling!) and use when needed. Each compact case comes with 15 wipes. No more embarrassing red-blue teeth for you, or your friends!
Let’s face it, if you’re outdoorsy like me you’re probably always looking forward to a camping trip, sleeping on the beach, or just passing out in your car in a parkinglot on your epic road trip journey! But who of us looks forward to the morning after? No one! There’s so many times during our adventures that we aren’t near a shower, and that’s okay — what isn’t okay is looking like you haven’t had a shower! Have no fear, let me introduce you to Not Your Mother’s dry shampoo. This dry shampoo is not only great for your hair but it’s also quite inexpensive. Not Your Mothers offers quite the selection depending on your specific hair type, and in varying scents and sizes. Pictured above is Clean Freak Tapioca, but be sure to check out Beach Babe Texturizing, Plump For Joy Thickening, and Clean Freak Refreshing just for starters!
Love this! Gone are the days of sticking your regular size razor in a ziploc bag and hoping it doesn’t smell like mold a month into your backpacking trip! Gillettes Snap razor comes with it’s own perfect little carrying case that it “snaps” right into. It’s compact size saves space and it’s five blades mean you aren’t sacrificing your clean shave for any of these great perks! Just because you’re not home, doesn’t mean you can’t feel as clean and smooth as you do when you are!
