Hey guys! As you may or may not know I'm going on a trip and I'm leaving tonight. I'm not going to tell you where I'm headed to, you'll find out as soon as I'm there.
I said I was going to film a Youtube video about my travel essentials/what I keep in my travel bag.. and I did. But the video is almost an hour long. The cut video would've been like 20 minutes long and to be honest it's not even that interesting so I decided to write a blogpost instead.

When I travel I keep a lot of stuff in my bag, and with travel I mean flying for a minimum of 8 hours. Most of the things in my carry-on luggage is skin care stuff. I break out so badly after flying so I really need to take care of my skin. Flying dries out your skin so much and the first step to prevent that is to drink a lot of water. I constantly drink water during my flight. And the second step is skincare (more of that later in this post). I also get sick very easily during flights because of the air conditioning so I always bring a huge scarf with me and also a hoodie I can put on when I'm feeling cold. When I travel I wear the most comfortable clothes I have which means I wear boyfriend jeans, sneakers, a loose shirt and a cardigan or as I mentioned, a hoodie. I don't wear a lot of make up, only a little bit or mascara. Now, moving on to my essentials/what I keep in my travel bag:

First of all, the travel bag that I use is the Louis Vuitton Keepall 45 in monogram

Electronic devices
Beauty products

  • Make-Up Remover: Cela Make-Up Cleansing Tissues to remove make up, even waterproof! I hate cleaning my face with wipes.. I need water! So I usually bring a few cotton pads with me and ask for some water. Then I'll go to the bathroom and just clean my face with some (bottled) water and cotton pads.
  • Moisturizer: Avène Hydra moisturizing cream to moisturize my skin
  • Moisturizer N° 2: Khiel's In-Flight Refreshing Mist to moisturize my skin during flight (every hour or so)
  • Moisturizing mask (I use sheet masks): Timeless Truth, couldn't find the one I use online. It's the bio cellulose hydration mask. Don't actually use it because it looks hella scary but I still keep it with me just in case.
  • Eye cream: Khiel's Creamy Eye Treatment
  • Eye mask: Klorane Smoothing and relaxing patches (30min before landing so I look awake)
  • Hand cream: Khiel's Richly Hydrating hand cream (limited edition)
  • Deodorant: CD Mini 25ml Roll-On
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Dry Shampoo: Batiste Blush Floral & Fruity 30g
  • Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream small sample 
  • Concealer: Mac Pro Longwear
  • Mascara: Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Feline Blacks

Other stuff

  • Foldable flats to walk around in the airplane
  • Compression socks (can not live without)
  • Passport case
  • Travel wallet
  • Scarf

I hope this is helpful! You can use this as a guide or check list... I can't even explain how many times I've forgtten about something I really needed to bring and how annoying it was. To some of you this might be too much but for me it's perfectly fine and all the items that I bring make my flight really enjoyable. 

What are your travel essentials? 

I don't know if there's going to be any blog posts during my vacation but as soon as I get back there's going to be a travel vlog on my Youtube channel and a post with pictures on my blog.
