This Toiletry Packing List is Perfect for the Travelling Woman!

Zero waste and reusable toiletries

It’s so easy to forget the little things when you’re packing. We’ve all been there—you know you need shampoo and conditioner, but what about face wash? Or do you even need that?? Well, here are must-haves for any trip:

Face wash

Face wash is an important part of your skin care routine. It helps you keep your face clean and healthy, which can be especially helpful when you’re on the road. Many face washes come in travel size bottles that fit easily into carryon bags, making them a great option for travelling women.

Makeup remover

Makeup remover wipes are the best way to remove makeup while you’re on the go. If you don’t have any and want to be prepared, I recommend grabbing a pack from your local drugstore.

They’re not expensive and work great at getting rid of all that gunk that collects around your eyes as well as your lips!

If you have time before bed, it’s also nice to use regular facial cleanser with warm water in order to get a deeper cleanse- travel essentials for women.

Body lotion

Body lotion is a must for any trip! Body lotion will help prevent dry skin and help your skin feel smooth and soft. It’s also good to use body lotion after washing your hands or after a long flight, as it helps restore moisture back into your skin.

You can even use body lotion in the morning before you head out for the day or at night before bedtime for extra hydration.

If you do not have any body lotion with you when on vacation, there are many brands available at drugstores across Europe and North America that sell travel-sized tubes of moisturizer.


Deodorant is one of those things that, if not packed properly, can become a nightmare. It’s easy to forget about when packing and take for granted that you will be able to find some in your destination country. However, this is not always the case! Some countries do not have access to Western hygiene products or they may be very expensive.

While this might seem like an obvious thing to include on your list (and it really should be), there are other uses for deodorant besides just smelling good. Deodorant also makes a great insect repellent! When applied under your arms and on any other exposed areas of skin, deodorant can ward off unwanted bugs while still keeping you fresh!

Toothbrush with cover

  • Your toothbrush
  • A cover for your toothbrush (you can get these at the dollar store)
  • Travel-sized toothpaste (make sure it’s airtight)

Hair brush or comb

  • Hair brush or comb
  • Don’t bring both!

A hair brush is great for keeping your hair tangle-free and smooth, but a comb can help to distribute the oils in your hair to keep the ends soft and shiny. If you need both, I suggest bringing one of each so you don’t have to worry about forgetting one of them.

Shampoo and conditioner

  • Shampoo and conditioner. You’ll want enough shampoo and conditioner to last you the length of your trip, so plan accordingly.
  • Travel size bottles. All my toiletries fit neatly in these 3 ounce travel bottles that come with a handy pump top spout, which makes them easy to use while on the go. I love this set because I can just grab one or two out of my bag and know that they’re all going to fit perfectly in my toiletry bag! Plus they have little labels on them so that if you forget what something is, it will remind you where it goes!
  • Leave-in conditioner & dry shampoo

If any of these products are new for you (like leave-in conditioner), be sure to test them out before traveling with them—you don’t want any surprises during your trip!

Contact solution and contact case (if applicable)

Contact solution is usually sold in a small bottle. You can buy your own contact case, which can be bought at a drugstore, or you can make your own.

Face moisturizer with SPF

You should always use a moisturizer with SPF. This is to protect your skin from the sun, which can cause wrinkles and premature aging. The best way to choose a moisturizer that works for you is by reading reviews online and asking friends who have tried similar products what they think of them.

You’ll also want to make sure that the product has ingredients like Vitamin E in it, which help repair damage done by free radicals (found in things like pollution). Some people prefer lotions over creams because they’re lighter and tend to be absorbed more quickly into their skin; others may prefer creams because they absorb better into their skin.

Whatever you decide on, make sure it’s not too thick or heavy because you don’t want that extra layer of fat sitting on top of your face as if it were an extra coat of foundation!

And don’t forget this step: apply liberally every morning before heading out into the world!

Makeup bag with travel-sized makeup essentials (foundation, powder, eye shadow, mascara, blush) and makeup removal products.

Make up bag with cosmetic beauty products
  • Makeup bag with travel-sized makeup essentials (foundation, powder, eye shadow, mascara and blush).
  • Eye makeup remover wipes. You can purchase individual bottles or you can also get them in a pack.
  • Facial cleanser/wipes for removing your daily grime at night before bedtime! They’re great for when you want to remove all of your makeup without having to do an entire bath routine right before bedtime.
  • Exfoliating face wash: This will help keep your skin fresh and clean while on the road! Just be sure that it’s specifically designed for sensitive skin so as not to irritate yours more than necessary- travel essentials for women.

Facial mask to use mid-flight to feel pampered!

A facial mask is the perfect way to pamper yourself mid-flight, so don’t forget about it on your packing list! If you want to feel refreshed and hydrated, there are many different types of masks available for every skin type. If you have dry skin, try using a hydrating mask. If you have oily skin, opt for a clarifying or purifying mask. The best part? Masks are small enough to fit in your purse or carry-on bag!

Travel sized perfumes and cologne samples that were given to you as gifts. They are the perfect size to bring along in your carryon!

If you are a woman, travel sized perfumes and cologne samples that were given to you as gifts make the perfect size to bring along in your carryon. They can be also bought at most stores. You can also buy travel sized toiletries like toothpaste and mouthwash, shampoo and conditioner, body wash, soap etc., which come in pretty handy when staying at hotels with small bathrooms where there is no counter space for storing full size products. You might want to consider bringing a razor because hotel razors are often dull or poorly maintained. If you are traveling internationally or plan on going somewhere colder than usual it may be good idea to invest in a multi-tool with scissors for cutting tape off packages or opening boxes of food items (such as bagels).

If you are traveling soon and want some tips on how to pack your toiletries, this list is perfect for you! It contains the most important things that every woman needs while on vacation. From shampoo to deodorant, we’ve covered everything in this article.
