Road Trip Beauty Essentials

Going on a road trip is an exciting experience for anyone, but not being prepared can leave you in some pretty awful situations. This post is based on the BARE BASIC beauty essentials every girl needs for a long-term adventure – because lets face it girls… It is not essential to be applying eye cream, face masks and whatever else on an adventure…

Hair Brush

An absolute essential for any adventure.. there’s nothing worse than tossing and turning in the middle of the night and waking up with some serious bed hair that you cant fix. You can buy portable hair brushes and small hairbrushes to cut down on storage space. Click on the picture below to buy this product – they’re super cheap and absolutely perfect for a road trip!


An absolute must-have when on the road.. not just for your eyebrows but also for things like splinters! Another super cheap product – Click on the picture to buy this 2 pack of tweezers!


Try not to bring glass perfume bottles and instead buy a refillable spray bottle and make your own! Like this one below – click on the picture to purchase this product.

You should also pack some baby wipes or facial cleansing wipes for those desperate times when you are camping and don’t have access to a shower.

Toothbrush and Toothpaste

An obvious essential.. you can also get the single use toothbrushes to keep in your car for those emergency situations as well. Take a look at this awesome bamboo toothbrush which is also eco-friendly!! – Click on the photo to view the product!


Cull down your unnecessary makeup and only take what you need, you really do not need to take 3 boxes full of makeup you have had for years, all you need is one of everything just in case you come across a groovy nightclub or festival and then buy more as you run out.

Makeup Remover

If you plan on taking makeup you’re going to need some makeup remover as well! 😀 And if you don’t plan on wearing makeup on your trip, fragrance free makeup wipes and even baby wipes can help to keep your skin feeling healthy and hydrated.


An absolute necessity – especially here in Australia! You would be silly to not pack some good quality sunscreen for your journey..

Hand Sanitiser/Hand Soap

Adventuring can leave you exposed to a lot of germs and bad bacteria, don’t hold back though – get out there and experience everything, have fun and keep yourself clean and safe from all of those germs by having some hand sanitiser and soap handy!

Shampoo and Conditioner

For clean, healthy and beautiful hair on the go I suggest making your own and then packing it into a jar or container but if you really don’t want to make your own or you run out in the middle of no where and cant get your hands on any ingredients I suggest buying the mini packs of shampoo and conditioner instead of the bulk packs.

NOTE: Always try to avoid shampoo and conditioner with a pump top as once they are opened it can get really messy – trust me -.-

I hope this post has helped you in culling down what you decide to take on your next adventure! I’m planning on going on an adventure of my own very soon so stay tuned and check back for a post on what I chose to pack for my road trip.
