I cannot contain my excitement!
In just a few days, I will be laying on the beaches of Oahu soaking in all the beauty it possess. I have never been to Hawaii and honestly, it has been a long time (if ever) that I have had a REAL vacation. This trip came as a surprise as I just bought my plane ticket yesterday, but I have reached a point in my life where I need to be spontaneous!
As I will be gone for exactly a week, I thought I would go ahead and start planning what to bring! When it comes to traveling, the first thing that comes to mind is of course my beauty products. These are my go-to products and tools in my everyday life – & I can’t live without them while I am gone!
Take a peek at what’s in my beauty bag!

Hair Styling Tools >>>
If you can’t tell, I am a T3 gal. What is special to me about T3 products is the difference it has made to my hair versus other styling tools. As T3 styling tools all use Tourmaline crystals, they release negative ions that reduces frizz while maintaining body and shine, which is heaven to my hair!
Now, bringing my whole collection on vacation with me might seem a bit excessive, but I can’t live without them! The curling set and straighter are a given, but as for the hair dryer, I can’t stand using the ones that are provided by the hotel. Therefore, mine is coming with me!
Last but not least is my handy-dandy wet brush which will relieve my hair from the nots and tangles of the ocean. I have both the full sized brush as well as the travel mini, and they are both divine!

Similar concept as the hair dryer, my hair does not take well to the sample shampoo and conditions that are in the hotel rooms. Currently, I have been using the Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Bodybuilding Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, so this little duo is taking a trip to Honolulu! Having full volumized hair in sounds good to me!
Beauty & Skin Care Products >>>
I have been saving my LUSH Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie for a special occasion and my what an occasion it is! I have used these shower smoothies before and they feel delicious on the skin. As I plan to be outside majority of the time, my skin is going to need a good amount of R&R. This product eliminates the need to use a moisturizer after the shower, as it replenishes the moisture when cleansing. Might I add that it smells delicious?!
As for my facial cleanser, the Philosophy Gel Cleanser has been a holy-grail product for me. It is a makeup remover and cleanser which is perfect for the lazy-girl mentality. Again, eliminates the need to use two products for one overall purpose. My kind of product.
Last but not least, a pale skin girl like myself needs a high SPF for her tropical paradise. This one has been my go-t0 for the last two years. It provides the protection while making the skin silky smooth. Might I add no white?
