4 Beauty Items You Need To Pack In Your Bag While Hitting The Road

Just went through it so it’s fresh in my mind. If you are taking a road trip with the family, there really isn’t a need to put on a full face unless you plan on making a number of tourist stops. However, if it’s just a driving day – I really do suggest that you have these four items RIGHT NEXT TO you in the car – not packed away in a suitcase. I was DYING that everything was packed and really wished I had a little care package by my side.

Lotion – 8 hours in the car and you begin to notice how dry your skin really is. I kept looking at my arms and thinking about how I needed to moisturize!


Nail Filer:  Same scenario. There’s a lot of time spent analyzing your arms and legs during a road trip. LOL! If I had a nail filer, I would have given myself a little shape up.



Confession time: I try not to go to the bathroom in the public. It’s the strangest most ridiculous thing. But I have been known to go HOURS (like 8) and just wait until I get home to pee. Yes – way too much TMI. The point of this statement is I do NOT like using public restrooms. They completely skeeve me out!!!! You BETTER BELIEVE I’m NOT GOING TO USE ONE TO BRUSH MY TEETH. The thought of it is making me gag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shaking it off.

Anyway – When I want a fresher mouth during the long ride – a Wisp would be a MUCH BETTER solution.

Face Wipes: Do you know how many times a human touches their face on a daily basis? The statistics would SHOCK YOU. I’m actually pretty conscious of it and always try to stop myself when I catch myself in motion. In the end, it happens. And all that grease and dirt from the day (and the trip) has a one-way trip right to your pores. I was dreaming of face wipes all day yesterday. Just to clean off the grime!

Do you have any tips you’d like to share?? I have about 8 days left on this ride! Can use all the help I can get. 🙂
