I was asked to participate in the #PrettyPerk campaign, sponsored by Walgreens. Although I was compensated, all thoughts and opinions are genuine and my own.
Good morning everyone!
We are sharing this post with you live today from sunny Arizona! Y’all, it is hot, hot, but Shawn and I are so excited to be taking the week off to relax and enjoy each other’s company.
When traveling, ease and simplicity when packing my travel essentials are a must. That is why we turn to Walgreens for all of our make-up and travel needs.
Walgreens carries an extensive collection of travel size products and today we’re excited to partner together to share our top 10 travel must-haves and how you can save big with their Beauty Enthusiast reward program.

As we prepare for our trip, here are a few of the awesome travel and make-up essentials we’re packing!
Our 10 Travel Essentials:
When I travel, I do not tend to wear a lot of make-up. Two items I never leave the house without are mascara and make-up remover. I always pack make-up remover wipes to quickly and easily remove mascara and any residue from the day. These Simple wipes are compact and made with natural chemicals that leave my skin feeling smooth and oil-free.
As I said above, and have said many times here on the blog, I never leave home without a good coat of mascara. And, what is a vacation without a quick trip to the beach or splash in the pool? In every one of my travel bags is a tube of water resistant mascara. What is the one thing you can’t leave the house without?
Protecting my skin from harmful sun damage is of the upmost importance. I recently started using this Coppertone Clearly Sheer Whipped Sunscreen and love it! As it claims, it leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth, hydrated and the application is easy.
Because the pool, sun and the heat have a tendency to dry out my hair quickly on vacation, I try to resist washing every day. That is why I never pack a bag without a great bottle of dry shampoo. I have tried a number of different brands of dry shampoo over the years, but at the recommendation of a number of my girlfriends, one of my favorite drugstore dry shampoos is Dove. It does not leave my hair greasy or heavy and I love that it comes in an affordable travel size.
Shampoo & Conditioner:
Has anyone else arrived at your beautiful hotel to unpack your bag only to find your shampoo, conditioner or other travel essentials have spilled all over? Yep, me too! Since that time, I never pack a bag without putting my travel essentials in a waterproof or still water resistant travel case. Walgreens has an extensive collection of travel cases and bags for your choosing.
Not Your Mother’s Beach Texturizing Spray:
I love this stuff! There is no better way to get soft, lovely beach waves then than with Not Your Mother’s Beach Texturizing Spray. It adds sexy, tousled waves and a light matte finish to any hair type. This salon formula has you and your hair on the boardwalk all year long.
Color Sticks instantly moisturize lips, while continuously conditioning them so they are softer and smoother. Made with fruit extracts along with mango and shea butter, the balm-like formula glides on easily, providing a sheer wash of moisturizing color that lasts for hours.
In addition, the twist up package allows for perfect application each time – with no sharpener needed. It is the perfect look for a day by the pool or an evening dinner out. It comes in 10+ shades, too!
This pretty pink Lip Soother provides hydration and protects lips all day. Made with a unique hydrogel formula, cucumber, chamomile and glycerin, this gloss provides instant relief on contact with high gloss shine. I love that it is pocket-portable and contains SPF 20 for added sun protection.
