It is vacation season. With that comes packing. I swear the hardest thing to pack before going on vacation is the beauty bag. Between trying to fit everything into one little beauty bag so that it doesn't take up a lot of space AND keeping things under 3 oz. if you are flying, it is hard. I travel quite a bit and have my travel beauty bag ready to go on a moments notice. Here are the top 20 travel-sized beauty products that I always have ready to go and are perfect for taking on vacation.

20 Travel Sized Beauty Products for Vacation


1. IT Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream (travel size)
This best-selling full coverage CC+ cream comes in a travel size that is a must-have for any vacation or weekend travel.

2. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water (travel size)
This is an amazing primer that will give skin a smooth finish and helps makeup last the day. This travel-size is perfect for the cosmetic bag.

3. Clarisonic Mia FIT
Just because this Clarisonic is smaller in size does not mean that it is smaller in power. It is a must on vacation because you don't want to skimp on your skincare routine when traveling. See my full review here.

4. Philosophy Away We Go! Set
This 4-pc set contains all of my philosophy favorites and they are perfect for taking with you on a week-long vacation. The set includes Purity On-Step Facial Cleanser, Renewed Hope in a Jar, Amazing Grace Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath plus Amazing Grace FIrming Body Emulsion.

5. LORAC TANtalizer Baked Bronzer (travel size)
A vacation bronzer is a must-have makeup item and this baked bronzer is perfectly sized. Plus, this one is buildable and works on all skin tones.

6. Lancôme Génifique Youth Activating Second Skin Mask
I always take a mask on vacation because my skin gets extra dehydrated while traveling. This is one of my very favorite masks because it is like a facial in one 20 minute treatment.

7. IT Cosmetics Your Beautiful Basics Travel Brush Set
You only need to take your essential brushes with you when going on vacation. This brush set contains a powder brush, shadow brush, plus a liner/brow brush. If you haven't used any IT Cosmetics brushes, you are missing out; they are some of the very best in the beauty business.

8. Tarte Happy Girls Shine Brighter Double Duty Beauty Eye & Cheek Palette
This travel-sized makeup palette contains universally flattering shades for eyes and cheeks. With four shadows, a blush liner and highlighter, it is essentially all you need. 

9. Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray (travel size)
This makeup setting spray is perfect for locking in your makeup look for a long day on vacation. I don't go anywhere without it and I have this travel-sized bottle as a staple in my vacation beauty bag.

10. IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream (travel size)
This anti-aging super cream is your one and done cream. This travel size is a must for keeping skin moisturized.

11. beautyblender air.port pro 4-pc Travel Set
If you are a beautyblender user, you know how difficult it is to travel with one. This set makes that simple. The set includes two beautyblender sponges, a small size solid cleanser plus a mesh travel bag that lets the sponge's dry while on vacation.

12. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Concealer (travel size)
This full coverage concealer is not only a great concealer, this travel size concealer is also waterproof making it perfect for a vacation at the beach.

13. Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash (travel size)
This travel size mascara will lengthen and keep your lashes curled throughout any long vacation day.

14. Honest Beauty The Jet Set 4-pc Hair Set
The travel set comes in a zippered pouch and has everything you need for a week's worth of gorgeous hair. The set includes a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner (I am obsessed with this moisture milk) and a sea salt spray. If beach waves are your thing, this set all but guarantees it!

15. Simple Skincare Water Boost Hydrating Booster
Traveling wrecks havoc on the skin; it especially dehydrates the skin. This new water boosting serum can be used as a primer, booster or additional moisturizer just where you need it or all over. It does a fantastic job at immediately hydrating parched skin. My travel bag will not be without it.

16. Urban Decay go Naked Perfume Oil
This is the perfect summer scent — it smells like vacation in a bottle, so why not bring it with you on vacation? The rollerball design makes it easy to travel with. See my full review here.

17. IT Cosmetics Brow Power (travel size)
This universal taupe brow pencil keeps brows in place all day with its wax-like pencil formula. The travel size doesn't take much room in your beauty bag.

18. Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm
I love stick makeup for travel because it is extra convenient. For lips, I like the Chubby Stick. I often get them as GWP and save them for travel. 

19. Tweezerman Mini-Slant Tweezer
I can't leave for even a few days without favorite tweezers, but when I do go away, I take the mini size.

20. IT Cosmetics It's Your Brush Love Instant Brush Cleaner (travel size)
Brushes need to be kept clean, even when traveling. This travel size instant brush cleaner makes it easy to spray, wipe and go without having to worry about deep cleaning until you are back home.
