‘Sup. I figured ya’ll be voyeuristic fucks, so here’s a quick post on what toiletries I’m taking with me on vacation. Tips on how to pack your own bag will come shortly!
For some folks out there, trying new bath products at their destination’s hotel is one of the small perks of vacationing. I am not in that group of people.
First of all, I’m an admitted product whore and a creature of habit – I know what I like and sweet baby jesus lord in heaven help you if you try to change it up for me, because i will cut u.
Second of all, I’m staying in hostels my entire vacation and unlike pricier digs, they don’t offer amenities like shampoo, conditioner or body wash for me to use even if I wanted to use them.
And since I will be flying carry-on only, I have to be extremely mindful of TSA’s 3-1-1 rule for carry-on liquids, which includes much of my toiletries.
Everything you see below is compatible with TSA’s 3-1-1 rule (and packed not 1, not 2, but 3 weeks ahead of time because I am an extremely anal and excitable woman).
My sweetass neon orange bag is from Flight 001’s X-Ray Quart Bag line and comes in other visually aggressive colors like neon pink, neon green and non-offensive clear. I love this bag because it fits a ton of stuff and its zippered top feels super secure and leak-proof.
And now, a few of my favorite products.
Front row, from left to right:
Toothpaste, Facial Cleanser (Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Cleansing Foam – goddamn that was a long name), Makeup Primer (Shiseido something), Foundation (Chanel Perfection Lumiere – worth every penny), Face Moisturizer (The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream)
Back row, from left to right:
Shampoo (Aussie Moist Shampoo), Conditioner (TRESemmé Touchable Softness), Body Wash (The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish – smells amazing), Blue Spray Bottle (Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Hair Spray), Purple Spray Bottle (TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray), Makeup Cleanser (Clinique Wash the Day Away), Body Lotion (The Body Shop Mango Body Butter, Tide To-Go Pen

As you may have noticed, I am a huge fan of humangear‘s GoTubbs and GoToobs. They’re expensive but they do an excellent job at keeping everything leak-proof and are adorable as fuck. (That last reason has justified many purchases in my life.)
And there you have it! Everything liquid that could possibly touch my heavenly body in Vancouver and Seattle, all in one quart-sized bag for your voyeuristic viewing pleasure.
Satisfied? Thought so.
