If you were following on Insta, you know that I was recently in Thunder Bay for a mini getaway. It wasn’t for work. It was purely for relaxing. And I did pretty much that! Andrew’s family lives in Thunder Bay, so we jetted over for a little vacation with them. It was the perfect energy reviver in my opinion.

Taking works breaks (including social media breaks) are very important for the mind. You honestly come back feeling more refreshed and energized.

Anyway, I wanted to write this post BEFORE heading on vacation, but as we have it, time wasn’t on my side. Point is, when you’re heading on vacation, you have limited space, and STILL need to pack all your skincare essentials. You know how important skincare is to me. Even on vacation. In fact, MORESO on vacation.

Your skin takes a huge hit when you travel, actually. The air is different, you’re usually out in the sun more, and don’t even get me started on the recycled air in airplanes. SO GROSS.

So, I’m breaking down my essential skincare products for when I travel in the video! ENJOY.


Ok, here’s the link to everything we talked about in the video:

Keilh’s Calendula Foaming Face Wash

Tru-Green Organics Exfoliating Cleanser

Avéne Radiance Serum

The Ordinary Buffet Peptide Serum

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Gel Cream

Vichy Idéalia Night Peeling Toner

Avéne Intense Eye Make-up Remover

AlumierMD Sheer Hydration Tinted Moisturizer

Cyberderm The Sunscreen Company

Vichy Idéal Soleil Sheer Lotion Sunscreen

Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant

For Beloved Girl Facial Masks

Victoria Radford’s Facial Masks

Ok, that’s it. I feel like that’s not a lot. Like I said, it’s your skin. You need to keep it glowing and radiant wherever you are. So, make room in your suitcase for this. Take out a pair of shoes if you need to. Your skin is more important!

Am I missing anything off this list? What do you NEVER travel without? Tell me, maybe I need it too!

Xx, Kim
