Vacation Beauty Bag Check List!

  1. Sunscreen (Face, Body, Lip)
    It needs no explanation, but we will review! You need to have an SPF on your face, body and lips when you’re out in the sun. These products are crucial in protecting your skin from the possibility of skin cancer as well as helping to keep your skin even-toned, firm and radiant.
  2. PFB Vanish w. Chromabright
    No matter where you go on vacation, chances are you’ve received some type of body waxing or shaved in order to prepare for it. While you may not be shaving or waxing on your trip the possibility of in-grown hairs never goes away. Bring your PFB Vanish with Chromabright along and apply every day to help keep in-grown hairs and their subsequent dark spots at bay!
  3. Cleanser
    You’ll definitely need to clean your skin! Many vacation destinations offer some type of body soap, but a face cleanser tends to be a more personalized choice, so be sure to grab your favorite and pack it.
  4. Moisturizer
    Whatever the destination, your skin is most likely going to be exposed to a bit more stress than normal. No matter if it’s sun, chlorine, salt, sleep deprivation or perhaps a few extra celebratory cocktails. Be sure to give your skin a good dose of moisture by bringing your favorite all-purpose moisturizer.
  5. Make Up Essentials
    If you’re a no make up kind of girl – hats off to you! Many women pack at least a mascara, such as the amazing FibreLuxe Lashes and lip gloss for a little pop. Others need their full make up kit. Whatever your make up needs be sure to pack all of your favorites. Forgetting a favorite color is no fun!

No matter where you’re going or what you’re doing for your vacation, being prepared with all of your beauty needs will make your vacation so much more fun!
