Packing for a trip can be overwhelming, especially when it comes down to choosing the essential products that can make or break perfect vacation photos or save skin from a sunburn.
We value all-natural products derived from safe and organic ingredients, so to save you the trouble of scavenging for the best brands out there, we’ve gathered ten of the best beauty products which are safe and efficient for traveling!
The 10 Best Natural Beauty Products for Travel
Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara
An organic mascara that actually works, and at a drugstore price? A travel necessity. This organic mascara won’t break the bank, is 100% recyclable, fragrance and cruelty-free, and hypoallergenic. The lack of chemicals and artificial ingredients make Physicians Formula Organic Wear easy on sensitive eyes, and your wallet!
Outdoor enthusiasts will love this bug repellent conveniently packaged in stick form, making for the perfect portable Bug Stick to throw in your purse or carry-on. Primarily made of beeswax and infused with bug-deterring oils, this deet-free product from Dr. Fedorenko True Organic is safe enough for kids and adults alike!
From the same makers of the Bug Stick is the Skin Stick — a similar product serving as a lip, cheek, and body moisturizing lotion in stick form. I’m always hesitant bringing liquids in my luggage in fear of accidental messes and wasted product, so this all-in-one product is perfect to keep on me all the time.
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream
The brand Juice Beauty is known in the beauty world as a high-end natural brand that embodies minimalism and pure ingredients, which is exactly what this cc cream does. This lightweight pigmented moisturizer color-corrects uneven skin tone with FDA certified organic ingredients, and even has SPF 30 to act as a face sunscreen!
Aromi Matte Liquid Lipstick
For makeup gurus, an all-day lipstick that doesn’t smudge is essential for those long days of traveling and eating on the go. I’ve tried nearly every long-lasting matte lipstick under the sun, but finding a vegan one that doesn’t test on animals or contain parabens was a pleasant surprise! This liquid lipstick from Aromi comes in two shades: a subtle, classic pink color called Berry Nude, and a trendy grey-beige Desert Taupe.
Sierra Sage Organics Green Goo Travel Pack
Small enough to satisfy TSA size regulations and completely packaged in its own leak-proof zippered bag, this travel pack of organic lip balms and skin salves all serve different purposes; it’s like having a mini, all natural skin first aid kit. The Green Goo Skin Repair is my favorite of the bunch, and is the most beneficial if applied after a day in the sun.
Deodorant is one of the most high-profile chemical products we use daily that cause harm to our bodies, so finding one that can honestly be labelled “natural” is a real struggle. Thankfully, this range of small deodorant minis made by Freedom are aluminum free and packed with essential oils that are so pleasantly fragrant! With all three scents included in their travel mini 3 pack, you get the chance to find your favorite before ordering more in a regular size (and trust me, you’ll want to).
Farmacy Honey Savior Repair Salve
Toss out your petroleum jelly; Farmacy’s honey salve is the new holy grail of hydrating products! Rather than sealing in harmful bacteria and toxins that petroleum jelly products typically do, this breathable repair salve has healing properties and natural antiseptics in addition to the already wonderful benefits of raw honey. This is safe to use for every skin issue from chapped lips, cracked skin, cuts and open skin to eczema, skin irritation and rashes. While it’s handy to have this available year round, I especially love this for dry winter skin!
Purest Naturals Hair Detangler
For those days when you aren’t trying to go for that messy, windblown hair look, a travel-size hair detangler spray is a great purchase. This one is made with natural oils, aloe vera and vitamin E, and comes in a small spray bottle that can easily save hair on those frizzy, humid days. Hair touch-ups aren’t always easy on the go; detangler is a natural solution. I love their Vitamin C Serum too!
W3LL PEOPLE All Natural Bio Bronzer
This one-shade-fits-all bronzer from W3LL PEOPLE is the ultimate go-to for those of us that appreciate products with 100% natural ingredients, like organic aloe, chamomile and green tea. There are only a couple other bronzers out there that can boast this “all-natural” title, so your options are limited and this is the best by far.
If getting a sun-kissed tan before (or on) vacation isn’t possible — or if you tend to burn easily and need to stay out of the sun — this should be a no-brainer!
COCO LUXE Coconut Oil
When space is limited in your travel toiletry bag, a minimal all-in-one product that is a perfect addition to your carry-on. This travel-sized tube of COCO LUXE coconut oil can be used in your hair to add shine and tame frizz, remove make up, applied as a lotion, lip balm, and under-eye cream. Amazingly enough, it can even replace standard cortisone to heal skin rashes or itchy bug bites, so it’s perfect for outdoor adventures!
