When it comes to summer travel, I always keep a bag full of beauty essentials with me in my carry-on. Even when I’m checking my bags you never know when you might lose your luggage! CVS recently introduced a new beauty section by the checkout that has everything you need for beauty on the go. I love popping into my local store to pick up my last minute travel essentials. And as a CVS Beauty Club member, I even earned $5 ExtraBucks Rewards from my purchases since they were over $50.
I’ve teamed up with CVS Beauty Club to give away three $50 gift cards to help you prepare for your next summer trip. Follow the directions in the box below to enter. And for inspiration, here are the 10 travel beauty products I take with me for summer vacay. Some are available online, others you can find in-store. Happy shopping and happy first day of summer!
MUA has the cutest travel size beauty products for summer. This nude palette is my fave because it has all the colors you need to take your eyes from a natural day to a smoky night look.
2. Makeup Academy Multi Purpose Brush
I also really like MUA’s smaller brushes. The multi purpose one works for both liquids and powders and is super soft on application.
3. Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes
I use facial wipes year-round. I keep them in my car to use after working out and they’re always in my travel bag for a quick refresh. I go back and forth with different brands but since I’ve been in the sun a lot this summer, I like the cooling feeling of the aloe vera in these travel size wipes.
4. Dove Advanced Care Cool Essentials
Clearly I’m on a cucumber kick this summer! This anti-perspirant has a refreshing scent and is a great size when you’re on the go.
5. EOS Hand Lotion
I’m a sucker for packaging and this moisturizer has a no-spill design, essential for when you’re throwing everything in a bag last minute! It comes in a few different scents and includes aloe in the formula, which is great post-sun.
6.Essie Second Shine Around
I’ve been using this product for years. It’s so helpful to keep your mani looking fresh. I apply a coat every other day for added shine. It’s especially great when you’re on a beach vacation when your sunscreen starts to eat away at your polish!
7. Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
I love everything citrus for summer. This lip balm uses pink grapefruit seeds oil for added moisture and a yummy scent.
8. Beauty 360 Mini Facial Skin Care System
There’s nothing better than visiting the spa while you’re on vacation. But when there’s no time for a treatment, you can do your own in your hotel room with this travel exfoliator. It even has a USB cord for easy recharging.
9. ConAir Travel Brush
There are so many cute travel size hairbrushes at CVS. For my most recent trip I picked up this pink and blue pattern to go with my bright outfits.
10. TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is a life saver when you’re getting off the plane. I always spritz some on my hair for an instant refresh. I also like to use it on summer vacations when I want some more volume with my beach waves.

The only beauty I can’t take with my in my carry-on? Bunny Bell! But my pup sure loves to cuddle while I’m packing up my essentials. Do you have any summer beauty items you can’t live without when you’re on the go?
