If you’re anything like us, then you probably pack way too many things in your suitcase when you’re getting ready to go on vacation. OK, so you might not actually wear 10 pairs of shoes during a three-day trip, but you like to keep your options open! That’s because you want to be prepared for every situation—whether you’ll be eating at a fancy restaurant, sipping fruity cocktails by the pool somewhere tropical (lucky you!), or visiting family for the holidays.
Just like you pack multiple pairs of heels, sandals, and sneakers, you may treat your beauty products the same way—stuffing a variety of lipsticks, moisturizers, and hair styling products into your suitcase, just in case you need to switch things up depending on your itinerary. However, sometimes you have to stop yourself from taking too many products—especially if you want enough room for all those shoes. If you’re headed on a winter getaway and need to streamline your packing, consult our checklist of the 15 beauty products you need to bring with you. From skin care products to makeup to everything else you could possibly need, we’ve got you covered.
While going on vacation may be the perfect excuse to take a break from your usual responsibilities, it isn’t the best idea to forgo your entire skin care routine. You’ll want to keep up with a few basics no matter where in the world you’ve traveled to. One such basic is cleansing. A good skin care routine should always start with a facial cleanser. Look for one that transforms from a clay to a mousse consistency, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser, or the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser. Squeeze your facial cleanser of choice into your hands and add water to transform it from a clay to a mousse, then gently massage it onto your skin using small circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Give your skin a sweet treat when you travel this season by stashing a sugar scrub in your bag. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Resurface & Energize Kona Coffee Scrub, and L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Sugar Scrub are formulated with three types of sugar to gently yet effectively exfoliate. Smooth a small amount of one of the face scrubs onto clean, dry skin, then massage it over your face with wet fingers. Rinse with lukewarm water. Use your scrub of choice up to three times a week for the best results.
If you experience dry skin in winter, you might notice that your complexion is also looking a little dull. So, if you’re headed away from home, consider bringing a charcoal mask with you. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask can help draw out the buildup of dirt, impurities, and pollution for skin that looks brighter immediately. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water. Use three times a week for best results—hopefully it won't be a problem finding enough time to pamper yourself throughout your vacay!
You don’t have to abandon your anti-aging skin care routine just because you’re traveling. Stow an anti-aging cica cream, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift CicaCream Face Moisturizer Pro-Retinol & Centella Asiatica, in your suitcase. This lightweight, protective cream helps skin feel softer and smoother immediately while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with continued use over time. Smooth the cica cream onto your face morning and night for best results.
Even if you’re hitting the ski slopes, taking sun protection measures is a must. To cut down on the number of skin care products you have to lug around on your winter getaway, make sure a moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum sunscreen makes it into your luggage. Try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30. Be sure to apply the moisturizer as directed and remember to also limit your amount of time in the sun (especially during the sun’s peak hours of 10 AM to 2 PM), seek shade, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.
If you’re going to wear makeup while walking snow-covered streets at some point during your trip, be sure to also wear a primer to create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup. This season, pick a primer that has a radiant finish, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer. Squeeze a small amount of primer onto your fingers and gently massage it onto your skin.
You may not want to spend too much time on your makeup while you're sightseeing but applying a little radiant finish foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation,
will ensure you’re ready for all those vacation selfies. Just squeeze some foundation onto a makeup blender and stipple it onto your skin for a seamless finish.
Consider this your new go-to makeup application tool. When it comes to your foundation, a makeup blender can help you get that flawless finish you’ve always wanted. Plus, it’s so simple to use! During your trip, apply your foundation with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, which has rounded edges that make blending easy. Apply a small amount of foundation onto the makeup blender, then use dabbing and rolling motions to blend the foundation onto your skin.
One of our favorite makeup trends for winter 2019 has to be an extreme highlight. You can get the look by applying highlighter drops, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops, onto your cheekbones. You can also mix a few drops of highlighter into your foundation or moisturizer for a slightly subtler glow.

Even if you want to take a break from wearing makeup while you’re on your relaxing winter getaway, you’ll likely want to have the option of glamming up your look for a night out on the town. An easy way to do just that, without requiring lots and lots of products, is to apply a quick coat of mascara. Try using the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mystic Black for intense length and volume.
While we’ll always love matte lipstick, matte finishes can exacerbate the look of dryness, so think about swapping out these formulas for glossy lipsticks during the winter. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Shine Lipstick line comes in 16 gorgeous shades, so you have plenty of options! Whether you’re a red lip, berry lip, or nude lip kind of gal, we have a feeling you’ll find your very own go-to shade.
We didn’t forget about your hair! The cold winter air can be drying, so if you’re expecting to wash your hair while you’re away, pack a nourishing system of shampoo and conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner. Gently massage the shampoo onto wet hair, then rinse and apply the conditioner, leaving it on for one to two minutes before rinsing out.
Editor’s note: When you’re in the shower, wash your hair with lukewarm water, as super-hot water can strip hair of essential oils, which can make it feel drier.
If you’re running around on your winter trip without much time to spare, you can refresh your hair using dry shampoo. Spritz a little bit of a dry shampoo, like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo, onto oily roots and lightly through the rest of your hair, then brush through. Formulated for normal to oily hair, this dry shampoo absorbs excess oil for fresh, lightweight hair with no visible residue.
We’re all about ease and convenience on vacation. To style your hair without using any heat tools, look for a hair spray that can be used on damp hair to add shape and definition, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray. Apply throughout towel-dried hair, scrunch your hair, then let it air dry. If your hair is naturally straight, put it in a braid after spraying to help create soft waves.
Let’s say you do want to blow-dry your hair while you’re on your winter vacation, that’s when it’s time to reach for a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. Be sure to bring one with you so that you can apply it before heat styling your hair—heat protectant is definitely not a product you want to bank on your hotel happening to have on hand!
