Wherever your winter travels take you, staying on top of your personal care routine doesn’t need to be a challenge. With travel-friendly minis, you’ll be able to keep your hair and skin nourished while exploring those sweeping slopes or warm waters. Here are our Desert Essence winter travel essentials, plus winter travel hacks for packing must-have toiletries.
Travel-Sized Essentials by Desert Essence
First thing’s first: You’ve got to have your basics. Make sure to pack along the fundamentals of your hair, body and oral care routines — here are travel-sized recommendations for cruelty-free, plant-powered Desert Essence products that you’ll find in our carry-on bags.
Desert Essence Coconut Travel Size Shampoo
Your hair still deserves nourishment while you’re away from home. Pamper your tresses with replenishing Desert Essence Coconut Travel Size Shampoo to cleanse dry hair with moisturizing organic coconut oil, olive leaf oil and hemp oil — this botanical favorite is also infused with a delicious coconut scent for a tropical vibe.
Desert Essence Coconut Travel Size Hair Conditioner
There’s no need to skip conditioning while you’re out of town. Desert Essence Coconut Travel Size Hair Conditioner is the perfect complement to your Coconut Shampoo. This hydrating conditioner infuses hair with moisture and shine, courtesy of deeply penetrating organic shea butter and sunflower oil.
Desert Essence Coconut Travel Size Hand & Body Lotion
Washing your hands throughout the day can leave them feeling parched. Keep a bottle of Desert Essence Coconut Travel Size Hand & Body Lotion in your bag for silky smooth skin on the go. You can also apply it to your body post-shower after an adventurous day full of sight-seeing!
Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil & Neem Travel Size Wintergreen Toothpaste
Maintain minty fresh breath and sparkling teeth after exploring the local food scene. Fluoride-free Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil & Neem Travel Size Wintergreen Toothpaste harnesses the botanical potential of neem, which neutralizes bacteria while removing impurities.
Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Travel Size Whitening Toothpaste
Another dental care favorite that you can take on the go is Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Travel Size Whitening Toothpaste, which features baking soda and sea salt to help reduce plaque buildup.
Beyond the Basics: Travel-Friendly Extras
There’s no need to skip important steps in your personal care regimen even when you’re away from home. While these aren’t specifically travel sized, they’re portable and TSA-friendly.
Desert Essence Lip Protection
Keep your lips soft and soothed by always having a nourishing lip balm on hand — this is one of those travel-sized beauty products that you should always keep in your bag. Pick up go-to’s like Desert Essence Lip Balm, which feature hydrating formulas with nourishing waxes and antioxidant-rich plant extracts.
Desert Essence Moisturizing Mouth Spray Arctic Berry
Don’t have a moment to rinse your mouth? Freshen up with a quick spritz of a mouth spray. Along with a juicy flavor, Desert Essence Moisturizing Mouth Spray in Arctic Berry contains pure Australian tea tree oil to help fight cavity-forming sugar acids and 20% xylitol and glycerin to hydrate the mouth.
Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Dental Floss and Dental Tape
Even while traveling, it’s a good rule of thumb to floss at least once a day. Luckily, most floss packaging is small enough to slip into your carry-on — for a plant-powered refresh, pack along Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Dental Floss or Tea Tree Oil Dental Tape.
Desert Essence Manuka Oil & Tea Tree Oil Exfoliating Soap Bar
Since soap bars are considered solids, they aren’t subject to TSA liquid rules. After trekking about town all day, treat your body with Desert Essence Manuka Oil & Tea Tree Oil Exfoliating Soap Bar, which deeply cleanses with tea tree oil and gently soothes with manuka oil.
Desert Essence Neem Cinnamint Toothpicks
Stash a slim carton of Desert Essence Neem Cinnamint Toothpicks in your carry-on bag for a post-meal spruce up. For a sweet burst of freshness, these toothpicks are infused with cinnamon and wildmint oils.
Winter Travel Tips and Hacks for Packing Beauty Essentials
Create a list of every grooming essential you use on a daily basis. Consider what your must-haves are so that you remember to pack them.
Don’t fill reusable containers all the way. If you’re using mini containers for traveling, avoid filling them all the way if you’re traveling by air — about ⅔ or ¾ of the way full should suffice. Changes in pressure can cause travel-sized skincare containers to leak.
Remember TSA rules. When traveling by air, you’ll need to become familiar with the TSA’s 3-1-1 rule. Basically, passengers can carry liquids, gels and aerosols in travel-size containers that are 3.4 ounces or smaller in one resealable, quart-sized bag in their carry-on. Otherwise, passengers must keep liquid, gel or aerosol toiletries in containers over 3.4 ounces in their checked baggage.
Packing for your winter travels doesn’t need to be a stressful ordeal, and you certainly don’t have to sacrifice important steps in your daily routine. Shop Desert Essence for cruelty-free, botanically potent travel essentials.
