Vacation Must-Haves!

Hi everyone! I'm a week away from my Florida vacation, so exited! Of course that means I have to pack ): it's hard deciding what beauty products to take and what to leave behind! I was wondering if any of you other Beauty Insiders/VIBs had vacation plans, and if so what beauty products are you bringing with you? It would be lovely to hear what everyone is doing for the summer!

I'm taking:

Neutrogena sunscreen SPF 50

Smashbox BB Cream

Benefit Porefessional mini

Cover FX Matte Setting Powder mini

Sephora Sun Disk Bronzer 

Nars Blush

Anastasia Eye Brow Pencil

Buxom Lash Waterproof

Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner

Urban Decay Primer Potion

Urban Decay Naked Palette

Eos Lipbalm

Korres Lip Butter

Benefit Benetint mini

Benefit Girl Meets Pearl mini

Stila Afterglow Lip Color

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Marc Jacobs Daisy rollerball

Viva La Juicy/La Fleur rollerball duo

B&B Surf Spray



Re: Vacation Must-Haves!

I'm bringing all of my sun safety kit to try out all of the SPF and BB and CC stuff for sure and some good sunscreens that won't break out my oily acne-prone skin (Please feel free to give recommendations, everybody! Smiley Happy ). The bag is big, so I think I can fit just about all of my makeup and skincare items in there if I want to lol.

Other than that, I'll be sure to pack:

-Foundation and concealer even though I'm trying to lay off it
-Blistex SPF 15 medicated lip balm and others with higher SPF's.

-Trader Joe's sunscreen

-Trader Joe's jojoba oil for gentle makeup removal and then Cetaphil soap after that.

-Murad's acne line and Peter Thomas Roth's amazing Sulfur Cooling Masque for any cysts and white heads that dare even try. (If these products keep it up, it's looking like I'll might finally get my acne under control by the time I visit the beach!).

-Witch hazel in case there's any acne outbreaks on my back and shoulders from sunscreen

-Waterproof eyeliner

-2-3 lipsticks

-2 nail polishes 

-My really handy all-in-one Sephora eyeshadow, lipgloss and blush pallete

-Tweezers so there will be no stray eyebrows

--Josie Maran Argon Balm in case I need intense hydration

-If anyone's interested, I'd like to suggest Korres Cooling Gel. I haven't used it after being out in the sun yet, but it's wonderfully cooling on my acne-prone sensitive skin, so I imagine it's great for sunburn too.

-I'm probably taking all of my skincare/makeup items (even non-essentials) so they don't go bad/get damaged from heat exposure in the house and my new bag can probably fit it lol.

Re: Vacation Must-Haves!

Don't forget waterproof mascara. I put on stuff that wasn't waterproof yesterday, and in 90+ degree weather it wasn't pretty. 


Re: Vacation Must-Haves!

I love that you're bringing so many minis! It will also come in handy to have in your purse to touch up or take a day look to night without having to revamp your whole look!


I would add/suggest blotting sheets, just so you're not relying solely on powder to touch up shine, Benefit's Porefessional can also be tapped over make up to absorb/control shine as well!


You might look into a lip exfoliator just to keep lips smooth, the summer sun can wreck havoc and dry lips out, even if you're constantly replenishing with lip balm, you can always use regular table sugar to lightly polish/buff at your lips though, you might even look into a lip balm with SPF for added protection.
