A guide to organizing and packing your skincare for travel.
Carry-On Only!   My first carry-on-only experience......     Took place when we traveled to Phuket, Thailand, for a friend's wedding and planned a few other stops along the way. Since we're only staying at each of these stops for 1-2 days, we decided to play it safe and do carry-on only. Who wants to stress over lost luggage when you only have 48 hours to enjoy a new city?!      At the same time, I wanted to save some rooms for souvenirs. I scratched my head as it sounded like a daunting task to squeeze all my beauty needs into a tiny suitcase AND leave rooms for shopping, but turns out, it's not as bad as I have thought and with the help of the right tools,    you can do it, too!

Packing Light with MUJI - Take 1   SIZES  // So many to choose from to accommodate different product types. For items like essence, you don't need to bring a lot as you only use a little bit, but with haircare or face cream, you may want to bring a larger bottle or jar.    DISPENSERS  // Choose the right dispensing method for certain items such as toner (spray) and essence (pump).   CONTAINER TYPES  // Again, many for you to choose from. You can use the jars for heavier cream or moisturizer that can't really be dispensed through a pump.    TOOLS  // Tools like this funnel (left photo) help you transfer product safely to the travel containers.   REMINDER // Products that are sensitive to light  can't be exposed to any light source as some ingredients will lose their effectiveness. You should use a non-clear container or do what I do here the old-fashioned way - Colored tape!  General rule-of-thumb : If the full-size is in a non-clear container, then your travel size should follow suit.  And sunscreen must be in a non-clear container!

 

// Tips on Organizing Your Many Look-Alike Bottles //

  • Place a piece of scotch/clear tape on each bottle and write the product name or product type on the tape.
  • Using scotch/clear tape as bottle labels makes it super easy to remove when your trip is done.  Trust me, removing those white sticky label was painful!

 

Packing Light with MUJI - Take 2   Don't underestimate the storage power of this little bag!    Wait til you see how it opens up on both sides and how much you can squeeze in all the compartments. 
Packing Light with MUJI - Take 2
Packing Light with MUJI - Take 2   COMPACT ON THE OUTSIDE, SPACIOUS ON THE INSIDE   I'm able to fit all the bottles on previous section (which is what I need to complete my travel skincare ritual) on one side as shown. On the other side, I can fit makeup - tools, tubes (concealer, mascara, etc), blush/highlighter compact and other essentials.     NEED MORE ROOM? NO WORRY!   I'm a minimalist with makeup, so this may not seem to be enough space for more, but I can still squeeze more things in there once I've filled up all the compartments. If you need more room for your makeup stash though, you can essentially use another one and it still won't take up too much space in your luggage.     I travelled to Asia (with multiple stops) with just one MUJI bag and I was able to fit 95% of my needs with the remaining 5% stuffed in nooks and crannies in my luggage...   The goal is to save room for shopping! 

 

// Tips on Downsizing Your Skincare //

  • I normally rotate among 2-3 different items for each step and I'm sure many of you do the same. Unless you're traveling for more than a month, my advice is to choose your most favorite one from the rotation and bring just 1 item per step. Every little bottle starts to add up in weight and space and it's best to save yourself the headache of dragging heavy suitcases around.
  • If you feel like you're really missing out on certain pampering by not bringing all your normal options, opt for treatment items (discussed below) that tend to be smaller in size (think sheetmasks or sample-size/pod-size items).

 

Self-Pampering Skin Care Travel Essentials   I don't skim on my skincare ritual even when I travel and have to pack light! Travel adds stress to your body and your skin, so it's even more important to keep up with not just your normal steps, but also these pampering treatments. 
My Traveling Must-Have's Pampering Treatments Include The Following Categories.....    FACE-Brightening   // All those selfies that you're planning to take? You want to look glowy, right? Bring a brightening mask.    My Pick:  Dr. Jart+ Brightening Solution Sheetmask.    EYES-Nourishing   // Whether you have dark circles or not, lack of sleep while traveling is so unforgiving on our eyes. Recuperate with an eye mask.     My Pick:  Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist 24 Pure Retinol.    FEET   // Mainly for summer travels where you'd be showing off your fave sandals - Keeping those heels nice and moisturized with a foot mask.     My Pick:  Daiso Foot Mask.    FACE-Hydrating   // We're all aware of the drying circulated air in-flight. Keeping your skin hydrated while traveling requires some extra help. Bring sheetmasks for nightly upkeep & a leave-on mask for in-flight hydration.      My Pick:   My Beauty Diary Damask Rose Sheetmask + GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment.    EYES-Refreshing   // I tend to not sleep well on hotel beds and wake up looking like a zombie. Along with eye masks, bring a quick eye refresher in case you're just too tired to mask the night before (this one takes only 3 min!).     My Pick:   GlamGlow BrightMud Eye Treatment. Tip: Use one side of a pack for both eyes!
Body Care Travel Essentials   How many of you have slathered yourself with the hotel body lotion only to notice that your skin is still dry? I'm not super picky with body care, but there are a few things I bring along for my own comfort. 
My Traveling Must-Have's Body Care Includes The Following Categories.....    BODY-Moisturizing   // I lotion up every night at home, so no surprise that I do the same when traveling. Tips: I use facial moisturizer samples that are too rich for my face and use as body lotion. They help you save space!    My Pick:   Any samples! Currently using First Aid Beauty (these are ultra rich & thick!).    BODY-Freshening   // I have collected a huge box of perfume samples and traveling is the perfect time to try them out! Also, these saved me many times from very unpleasant smell in the cabin.     My Pick:  Any perfume samples! Currently using Diptyque's.    BODY-Cleansing   // Whenever I have travel-size bodywash, I bring them along. It's at a lower priority, so only if space allows for it.       My Pick:   Cowshed Mini Bath & Shower Gel (I got a gift set of 7 mini's).    HANDS-Moisturizing   // How many times did you wash your hands at the airport/airplane bathroom and the soap just dries up your hands so much?! I trust only my own hand cream to save the day, no exception.    My Pick:   Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream (Travel Size).
Travel In-Flight Skin Care Essentials   For the long-haul flights (such as the ones to/from Asia), I remove all makeup and do a full skincare ritual in-flight. I also spray my face with this Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist (right) regularly to keep my skin hydrated and apply this cooling Boscia Eye Balm (left) to depuff my panda eyes.

Instagram Lately // Travel Beauty Essentials

Follow
Traveling home and spending time with families the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.

I'm always happy to be home, but this trip is super special because I get to see my niece and nephew who are visiting from Hong Kong!  They grow up so fast, and I'm bummed that I don't get to see them more often.  I know they love sweets, so I've already planned out all the dessert places I can take them to!

Speaking of travel, there are certain beauty products I just can't live without.

Sharing my travel essentials - what's in my carryon cosmetic bag.

Dior Nail Glow //  I'm often running errands up until the moment I have to head to the airport, so there's hardly time to spare for a nice mani.  I'm so happy I have this nail polish because even though it goes on clear, once it's dried, it gives my nails this rosy pink glow as if I've had a mani.  If you've used the Dior Addict Lip Glow, it's very similar concept here.  I highly recommend this for both travel and for in between manicures.

Hand Sanitizer //  I know it's not for everyone - My mom gets a rash when she uses it.  If it's suitable for you though, this is something I can't travel without because it's a safe-guard for my own health and sanity.

Eau de Toilette //  I try to buy or ask for a mini version of my favorite scent to stuff in my travel cosmetic bag.  For one thing, I've had to run to connecting flights one too many times and this helps me stay fresh and not scare my seatmates.  You can also use it to guard against your seatmates if they happen to smell not so fresh themselves!

Hand Cream //  Oh how I love hand cream.  I have an embarrassingly large collection, but it's not often that I get my hands on a real mini version for space-saving purposes.  With the skin-drying soaps they use at airports and in-flight, hand cream is a must in my bag!

Lip Gloss //  If I can only bring 5 items to a desert island, lip gloss will for sure be one of the items.  I love the ones that give my lips just a hint of pink color.  I feel so incomplete without one in my bag.

Blotting Paper //  My combo/oily skin gets slightly out of whack during my travels.  Different environment, stress, cabin air - All of that contribute to oilier-than-normal skin and a pack of blotting paper is a must in my cosmetic case!

Cosmetic Case //  I own more cosmetic cases than I'd ever need!  They do come in handy though when you do carry-on only.  I usually go for medium-sized versions, which can double as my skincare bag in order to save room in my luggage.

Did Someone Say "Hello Kitty"?

Sharing Hello KItty beauty products from Hong Kong.

My fellow beauty lover on Instagram, @blanckittyyy, and I were sharing our favorite mascara on one of her recent posts.  I mentioned to her that, don't laugh, my fave was a Hello Kitty version I bought from City Super, a popular store in Hong Kong.  And she asked me to do a blog story about it, so here you go my dear...along with a few other items I picked up + a surprise!

Confession of a former hello kitty addict

Yes, when I was little, I was all about Hello Kitty, down to my nickname "Kitty".  I know, why would I confess to that, but in case someone from my elementary school in Hong Kong has a picture of me all decked out in HK gear, I may as well spill the beans here!  I remember first day of First Grade, I had pencil case, stationery, backpack and hair pins all in the classic red and white style.  I felt fearless even though it was a new school and I didn't know a soul there.  Funny how little things made us so happy when we were kids.  Fast-forward to today, I'm still a huge fan, just in a more toned-down version, but I'd still get excited when I see special Hello Kitty merchandise!

About city super

Quick intro to this awesome shopping heaven in Hong Kong.  It's dubbed the "mega lifestyle specialty store" - Think Whole Foods + MUJI + Container Store + Sephora all in one place.  Pricing is definitely higher than the local supermarket, but you're paying for the convenience of a one-stop-shop.  There are several locations throughout Hong Kong...I know it's not a typical tourist attraction, but if you're ever visiting the city, it's worth popping into a City Super for the experience and for some of their unique beauty finds.  For more info, check out their site.

Hello...Long Lashes // Reviewing Hello Kitty beauty products - BCL Hello Kitty Limited Edition Extra Long Separate Mascara with Comb Wand.   I'm very low-key when it comes to makeup.  I'm usually either MU-free or go with the bare minimum and I think that's why I like this mascara so much.  It's definitely not for the date-night dramatic look, but good for everyday use.  Here are some highlights:   Comb-style brush helps separate and elongate the lashes.  Quick-dry formulation minimizes clumps.  Water-resistant, but yet easy to remove.  Special formula helps keep lashes hydrated and prevent breakage  Coverage is light and more suitable for casual minimal look.

Hello...Smooth Hair // Reviewing Hello Kitty beauty product - Matomage x Hello Kitty Hair Styling Stick Super Hold.   I'm constantly fighting with my flyaways that like to stick straight up around the top of my head!  I've tried the water trick, but it only lasts for a short while.  Then comes other hair products that leave my hair a little too sticky.  This Hello Kitty Hair Stick is a good compromise as it has a long-lasting hold without the super stickiness. Here are some highlights:   Direct application from the tube allows you to apply product without getting fingers dirty/sticky.  Formulation creates a nice natural shine on your hair.  Perfect to keep those flyaway on an updo in-check without having to rub hard and possibly messing up the updo.  Compact size makes it great to carry around if needed.

Hello...Smooth Hand // Reviewing Hello Kitty beauty product - Hello Kitty Hand Cream.   Does anyone else have a collection of hand cream and still continue to buy more?  I hope I'm not alone in this obsession...and when I saw these Hello Kitty ones at City Super, I could not possibly pass on them!  Here are some highlights:   The rose scent is just right - Smells like rose and not too strong.  Formulation is not greasy at all - Doesn't leave a sticky residue.  Hydration level is not as long-lasting as other hand creams I've used in the past.  The super cute packaging makes up for it though...a collector item in my opinion!

Hello...Glowy Skin // Reviewing Hello Kitty beauty product - Hello Kitty Essence Face Mask.   I bought these masks purely because of Hello Kitty and had pretty low expectation of their quality or effectiveness.  After one use though, I'm pleasantly surprised!  Here are some highlights:    Fit //   The fit isn't quite right for me.  To fit right at the mouth, it means pulling the mask down, but that also means my forehead is not completely covered. Also, the nose part only covers half my nose vertically.    Fabric //   Sheet is of ok quality, not rough, but not ultra soft like others I like. 
 
Hello...Glowy Skin // Reviewing Hello Kitty beauty product - Hello Kitty Essence Face Mask.   Essence //   There's a stickiness from the mask's essence.  I thought this would be a case of say-no-to-the-mask, but then I took it off and waited about 10 minutes for the essence to absorb before applying moisturizer.  It actually went from that slightly sticky feel to fully absorbed into my skin.    Result //   Skin feels so soft, moist (not greasy), and glowy!  This is such a pleasant surprise...now I just need to get someone to re-purchase these for me in Hong Kong!

To Buy Online // eBay and various lesser-known sites (try to check for authenticity).

L'Occitane hand creams & fragrances gift collection - Inflight duty free exclusives

One of the things I discovered from flying to/from Asia is the amazing selection from each airline's duty free catalog!  And some of the offerings are exclusive to in-flight shopping only and that makes it even more of a special treat. 

This beautiful L'Occitane gift set is a perfect example.  It is exclusive to Dragon Air in-flight duty free catalog.

L'Occitane hand creams & fragrances gift collection - Inflight duty free exclusives

The set includes three of L'Occitane's popular scents: Roses et Reines, Cherry Blossom, and Verbena (left to right).  Each collection has a pairing of hand cream and eau de toilette and comes with a matching pouch that is exclusive to this set.

L'Occitane inflight duty free exclusives - Hand cream

The hand creams are 1.0 oz, perfect to throw in your purse, gym bag, travel bag, etc.

The eau de toilette are these cute little mini's that look great on your vanity and for traveling as well!

L'Occitane inflight duty free exclusives - Eau de toilette

rose et reines

L'Occitane inflight duty free exclusives - Rose et Reines collection

If you have read my post on Diptyque, you know I'm addicted to the rose scent.  Naturally, the Rose et Reines is my favorite of the 3 in this gift set. 

L'Occitane uses a proprietary process where rose petals from Grasse, Bulgaria, Morocco, Turkey and Provence are steeped in oil and become saturated with the natural fragrance of the roses.  I probably wouldn't use the hand cream and eau de toilette at the same time as it is quite a powerful fruity scent, but individually, they are just lovely additions to any outfit.

The hand cream also doubles as a nail cream.  It contains shea butter and Vitamin E which helps soften the skin while it strengthens the nails.  I think this will become a regular in my in-flight pampering kit!

Individual items are available -

Hand Cream 1.0 0z USD $12.00 (Also comes in 2.5 oz for $22.00)

Eau de Toilette 2.5 oz USD $55.00


cherry blossom

L'Occitane inflight duty free exclusives - Cherry Blossom collection

The Cherry Blossom is a lighter scent.  Cherry Blossoms bloom in the spring and this scent carries that refreshing and rejuvenating feeling as we welcome spring after a long cold winter.

The star ingredient is a cherry extract from the Luberon region of Provence, France.  "It is because cherry blossoms fly away in the first breeze of spring that they are so rare and precious," says Olivier Baussan, L'Occitane founder.  I can't agree more - Cherry Blossom is one of my favorite flowers as they are so pretty and delicate.  I think that's why I love the pouch so much and have been using it to carry my phone whenever I'm running errands in the neighborhood.

Individual items are available -

Hand Cream 1.0 oz USD $12.00 (Also comes in 2.6 oz for $22.00)

Eau de Toilette 2.5 oz USD $55.00

Voyage Set USD $28.00 (This is a great value set!)


Verbena

L'Occitane inflight duty free exclusives - Verbena collection

The green verbena leaf is the star of this collection - It grows in abundance in Provence, France and gives out this lemony fragrance that wakes up all your senses.  In this collection, the eau de toilette has a much more powerful verbena lemony scent than the hand cream, so it's also ok to use both at the same time as you pamper yourself. 

What's unique about the Verbena hand cream is that it gives you this cooling sensation upon application.  A blend of organic verbena extract and tapioca powder helps soothe and absorb, leaving hands dry and cooled.  I think this is perfect for those hot summer days

Individual items are available -

Hand Cream 1.0 oz USD $12.00 (Also comes in 2.6 oz for $22.00)

Eau de Toilette 3.3 oz USD $58.00

Holiday Bauble Set USD $14.00 (Another great value set, but minus the eau de toilette)


I can't wait to fly to Asia again and get my hands on some exclusive beauty goodies!  Besides the shopping, I also love the great hospitality by flight crew on these Asian airlines.  They treat everyone with a great smile and, more importantly, with respect.  Something the U.S.-based airlines should learn to do.

What's your favorite L'Occitane goodie? Do share with me!

 

Thanks for stopping by!
