I’ve been spending one or two nights away each week lately so I wanted to have an overnight toiletry travel bag at the ready. I’ll still add things I don’t have duplicates of come time, but this is a great base to make weekend packing a bit quicker. I hope this helps you as well!
Overnight Toiletry Travel Bag Essentials
Face Wash + Cleanser + Washcloth + Moisturizer//
Dr. Bronner’s soap – any are great, but my go-to is peppermint. I use Dr. Bronner’s to remove makeup extra quickly when I’m away. I normally oil cleanse as Dr. Bronner’s is more drying, but when I’m away, I’m generally up later, not in my bathtub, and just want my makeup off fast.
I use my hands to double cleanse with Dr. Bronner’s and then apply a small bit of jojoba oil all over. After, I take a hot wash cloth and wipe to make sure I have a clean face. If I don’t have any makeup on, then I’ll cleanse with jojoba oil. Either way, I add more oil (jojoba or another one) to moisturize my face at the end.
I use this rosewater facial mist prior to putting on my skincare, for sealing it in at the end, and I’ll even spray my hair sometimes. I am big fan of mists and I go through them fairly quickly, so it’s nice that the rose one works and is inexpensive. The rose smell is not overpowering either. If I do get a bottle that smells extra rosy, I’ll add in a drop of frankincense.
Dew Dab for a random breakout if I stray from my usual eating style. On occasion I’ll add a drop to jojoba oil for extra aromatherapy. However, dew dab is drying, so I don’t do it often.
Gua Sha + Dry Brush//
I have an inexpensive Gua Sha that I picked up at a boutique for $20 for travel. This one looks the same for half the price. I don’t do a full gua sha routine when traveling, but even a 2 minute session perks up my face more, improves circulation, and drains lymph.
I don’t have a dry brush in my bag yet, but I’m adding it to the list! For now I have one of these Korean mitts packed. If I use it when I shower, it not only sloughs off the dead skin, but gives me a rejuvenating feeling.
Right now it’s Rose Glow Radiant Lover Lips.
I use an electric toothbrush at home, but I have a charcoal bamboo one packed for travel. I have these toothbrush covers to protect both heads (I just wait until the bamboo dries before covering it). Toothpaste – I use different kinds, but I like one of the Living Libations small jars for travel. I also have Happy Gum Drops for fresh breath or to use on my toothbrush after brushing. I only have one tongue scraper, but if I can remember I’ll add it to my bag come time.
Moisturizing Eye Drops//
I don’t use these eye drops often, but when I need them I am glad I have them. Whether I’m in a dryer environment or have tired eyes, they work great.
Facial SPF, Save Your Skin Spray, + After Sun Balm is what I have currently packed. I’ll take these out if I don’t need them for a certain trip. I have a clean sunscreen + suncare post if you want to know more deets.
I rarely use deodorant anymore. The cleaner less processed we eat, the less dairy and meat we eat, the more we help our lymphatic system filter out toxins, the less we stink. However, I still need it when it’s hot out or I’m sweating a good amount. I grabbed the travel size crystal deodorant for summer.
Essential Oil or Two//
Right now, I have a rollerball blend packed.
I’m using one from a Tulum hotel right now, but the Badger one is clean and free of DEET. Peppermint oil and neem oil if you have it also help in a pinch. It will just be missing that strong citronella scent found in bug sprays that the bugs hate.
Beekeeper’s Soothing Lozenge//
I have one honey lozenge in the bottom of the bag. I usually have the beekeeper’s spray in my purse as well. While these are great for what they are, they don’t even compare to Vimergy’s Propolis. If you are fighting something or just want to improve your immune system, grab Vimergy’s for the house.
Hair Ties + Bobby Pins//
Don’t forget to pack your hair essentials. I have little plastic hair ties to keep my hair in braids when I sleep. I also have a slip hair tie to put my hair up in a bun as well as bobby pins when I want to pull it half back. Salt Spray and a balm sometimes get added last minute as well, but I generally don’t even use it for a quick trip.
Oh, and I also have a band aid in the bag as well.
I turned off comments on the blog for now since I was getting so many spam comments, but I’d love to know if you are adding anything from this list to your stash! Or if you have a great product I should know about! Tag me on Instagram @herhealthystyle and let me know! Thanks so much for joining me here! Xx Riane
