My Absolute Ride or Die Travel Beauty Essentials

My Absolute Ride or Die Travel Beauty Essentials

Posted by Armaan Mann on

What's in my travel bag? We give you the lowdown on how to reach your vacay destination fresh faced!

You reach your vacay destination, have a look in the mirror and tired eyes stare back at you. Your skin looks dehydrated and your hair is a mess! Sounds familiar? Well, we've all been there. Did you know that you need to drink eight glasses of water for every hour of flight time to overcome dehydration? Not to forget the endless trips to the bathroom. No, thanks hun!

I always make sure to carry a few essentials with me when I travel. And I can vouch for the fact that they make a huge difference in the way my skin looks and feels.

Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks


These eye masks are my absolute favorite and they are used backstage at fashion weeks to instantly depuff the eye area. The gold foil in these eye masks helps retain heat and prevents the serum below from evaporating, allowing the maximum amount of absorption into the skin. The middle layer is elastic to prevent the masks from slipping, and the third is a cellulose fiber that condenses and delivers key ingredients efficiently, giving you all the skin-loving benefits you need. Hyaluronic acid delivers exceptional hydration to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Aloe leaf extract and lavender oil offer a cooling effect while soothing and calming the under-eye area. 

Some of the reviews on Sephora:-

 Actually Works!

"These actually work. I saw immediate results. Reduced puffiness and dark circles. I've tried several eye asks and these are the only ones that seem to work. I keep the in the refrigerator."

Great product

"Such an amazing product! I will definitely keep using. My eyes felt so refreshed and moisturized."

 Instant eye lift

"Loved these. Eyes looked instantly tighter and brighter. Would definitely recommend."


 Summer Friday's Jet Lag Mask



Whenever I have a flight to catch, I subconciously always reach out for this mask. I can't do without this mask anymore and if there is only one thing that needs to be in your travel kit, it's this.

Created by mega beauty influncers Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores, Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask is a rich combination of ceramides, vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory ingredients that help to combat puffy, inflamed, over-worked skin.

This ultra-hydrating facial mask immediately helps to calm, cool, and soothe your complexion hence, making it a cult status product.

This uber-dewy, hydrating mask soothes thirsty, stressed-out skin by steeping cells in a nourishing mix of vitamins, ceramides, antioxidants, and gently exfoliating extracts. Skin looks instantly renewed, radiant, and ready for anything. 

Some of the reviews on Sephora:-

A new skincare staple

"This mask is my new favorite skincare product. It leaves your skin looking bright, luminous and healthy. I see a dramatic difference in the way my skin looks and feels!"

Travel or no travel, this mask is a MUST

"I’m not sure what kind of magic they put in this stuff, but it’s amazing!!! I feel like I’m in my 20s again and not a 30 year old mother to be who hasn’t slept in days! My skin feel feels so refreshed, hydrated and plump. Obsessed is an understatement!!"



My silk pillowcase goes everywhere with me. I even carry it in the car to sleep on. I always notice that it helps me keep my hair frizz free and my skin happy. 

Silk being anti-allergic and nonabsorbent, will keep your hair and skin hydrated throughout the night so that you wake up looking beautiful. Say goodbye to dull looking skin and bed head forever!

Silk being an ultra-smooth fabric, allows your hair and skin to just glide across it as opposed to rubbing them, like cotton pillowcases do. Silk helps retain the natural moisture levels of our skin and hair.

Sleeping on a silk pillowcase helps keep your hair under control, since it reduces any form of friction or pulling associated with sleeping on a cotton pillowcase.


I love this stuff! 

"I cannot live without my pillowcase now after using it for over a year. I can’t wait it to come back in stock so that I could pick up a few more pieces."

Cant get enough! 

"I had been using the charcoal grey pillow cover earlier and was all too aware if its benefits. Everyone who used it in my house just got addicted to it which made me look for a few more pieces. I loved this color as it brightens up any room and is just luxuriant to sleep on."



This pure silk eye mask is my saviour on the flight. I know I never have puffy eyes when I land is because this silk eye mask ensures maximum absorption of my eye creme.

When you put on this sleeping mask after a long tired day, the feel of silk will transport you into a comatose state of relaxation. Pure silk eye masks will enhance the effect of any eye crème or serums that you use at night or while traveling by letting your skin absorb it. If you have sensitive or acne prone skin, silk will actually help reduce the sensitivity and give you healthy looking skin. Silk doesn’t absorb any moisture from your face thus keeping your skin hydrated, healthy and happy.The sensitive skin around your eyes is the first thing that gets affected. 

Just put on your favorite eye crème, top it off with a sleeping mask and reach your destination looking just as beautiful as you started!


Totally worth it! 

"The silk sleeping mask is highly addictive!! The texture is so soft...I love it! The best part is the colour matches my charcoal silk pillowcases!"

A silk cloud 

"It’s like a silk cushiony cloud for my eyes. I look forward to coming home at the end of the day and covering my eyes with this silk eye mask. The feeling is just wow! ❤️"


SK II Facial Treatment Mask



A cult-favorite sheet mask that immerses your skin in intense hydration. Packed with an exceptional concentration of Pitera, this mask takes your skin to the next level of crystal clear. The award-winning Japanese sheet mask is drenched in Pitera. Pitera is a bio-ingredient rich in vitamins, organic acids, minerals, and amino acids that work together to enhance skin cell renewal.

I use this mask after having a bath at the hotel. Within half an hour, my face feels like I have slept for eight hours with no signs of fatigue.

Some of the reviews on Sephora:-

Prepare for hydration

"Compared to Dr. Jart or Eve Lom, this sheet mask is incredibly thick and moist. It takes well over 45 minutes for the ingredients to "dry up" but the results are stunning. Hydrated, softer and dewy skin emerges after, making it well worth the price and time spent."

Buy it!

"This mask is amazing and totally worth the price! I use each mask twice by storing the used one in a Ziploc in the fridge. This keeps my skin clear and wrinkle free! I AM HOOKED!!! I love SK-II products this line is amazing!"

Worth the Splurge

"I love this mask to just use once a month. you really see a difference. it's expensive but it's worth it. plump up my dry skin, it look so much smooth and brighter. i have hyper pigmitation and this mask helped them fade just the slightest. I use the extra serum that's in the bag for the next for days. perfect for before a big event"


IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo



I have tried a lot of dry shampoos beause I don' really like to wash my hair more than once in five days. My hair has a hint of red in them and washing them too much strips off the color. What I noticed after using dry shampoos was that my hair felt gritty and dirty after a few hours and I had to wash it the next day. But not with this dry shampoo! I am absolutely amazed at how fast it takes your hair volume from 0 to 100 in 15 seconds. I think my search for that perfect cure-all dry shampoo is over.

The IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry shampoo cleanses even the most oily hair and scalp with oil-erasing, odor-eliminating charcoal powder. 

- Absorbs oil and eliminates odor with charcoal powder  
- Soothes the scalp with white tea powder  
- Seven percent cleansing powders provide a deep, detoxifying cleanse  

This heavy-duty dry shampoo allows you to go even longer between washes; even after workouts. Detoxifying charcoal powder lifts dirt and buildup while absorbing oil and sweat, while cooling, calming white tea powder calms the scalp and strengthens hair follicles. 

Some of the reviews on Sephora:-


"I literally NEVER write reviews, but this deserved one. I've been using the Living Proof dry shampoo for a while now and this one totally blows it out of the water!! The smell is amazing and the results are insane. I've literally never used a dry shampoo this good before. GET IT!"

The Best!

"Best dry shampoo ever! I've tried over 15 different brands and this is the best. It smells great and lasts all day!!"

Never Buying Another Dry Shampoo

"The only dry shampoo that has ever worked on my hair. Most other products make my hair look dirty and the smell is overpowering - this one makes my hair look and smell freshly washed!"


Joise MAran 100% Pure Argan Oil


A clinically proven 100% organic, do-it-all essential that naturally moisturizes and smooths fine lines and wrinkles to preserves skin's youthful radiance. Josie's bestselling 100% Pure Argan Oil is nature's anti-aging, skin-smoothing superfood for the skin. Like a nourishing shield that protects skin from skin-aging free radicals and environmental damage, this 100% organic liquid gold oil is clinically proven to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin smoothness and hydration. It is first cold-pressed and never heated to ensure the most powerful, highest-grade oil.

I use this oil on my face, as an under eye serum and as a hair serum when my hair is still damp. If you have this multitasker in your travel kit, you don't really need to carry a lot of products with you.


Some of the reviews on Sephora:-

This oil is Amazing!

"I bought this oil thinking it'll be too heavy for my skin, but it's not! I use it only at night and I wake up feeling silky and soft. I use it in my hair once a week for my split ends, and even those are happier. A little oil goes a long way, and there is no odor. Get a bottle and try it for a couple of weeks, you'll see!"


"I recently got this product and I have to say it takes me a while to "love" a product but I absolutely loved this product when I first tried it out after my skin care, this makes my skin feel so amazing and hydrated. I will be repurchasing."

Skincare Staple

"I use this in the morning and at night and it keeps my skin moisturized and looking healthy. After using for about three weeks, i began receiving compliments that my skin was "glowing," which is hard to achieve during cold east coast winters! Worth the money and don't worry..oil is good for your skin!"
