beauty • travel • lifestyle

Usually, as it goes, the warmer weather brings about travel as well. Be it, back and forth to the beach, lake, or pool or a vacation with family and friends, fragrance is one of the beauty products that can be hard to nail down. TSA doesn't exactly approve of us lugging our favorite bottle containing 3.4 ounces of perfume goodness, so we have to compromise. Fortunately, I have learned a few tips and tricks along the way that make it easier to toss your scent-du-jour into your bag in a much more travel friendly way.
  • Save up tiny samples. You know the tiny sample spritzers retailers practically throw at you every time you make a cosmetic-related purchase? Yeah, save those. Toss five of them in your preferably see-through travel pouch for on-the-go and those little guys will keep you smelling good throughout your entire trip. In reality we always need much less than we imagine.
  • Hoard rollerballs. Even if it's not your favorite scent, per se. They often come in sets and get tossed into a drawer somewhere. The best part about these is that they're perfect for keeping handy in your purse at all times, not just in travel circumstances. You'll be prepared next time without even knowing it. Who doesn't love that?
  • Use your loyalty points to get freebies. Typically there's an abundance of mini perfume freebies that you can choose from in exchange for points when shopping for makeup or fragrance. Do pick one up, or more for that matter, to store away until you need it. You'll be happy that your loyalty points were so well spent when it comes time to pack your bags and you won't have to run out to make a last-minute purchase.
  • Bring one night and one day scent. If you're bringing along a scent you're not accustomed to, go with one light and fresh option, and one heady and sexy. This way, if you're thrown some unexpectedly steamy weather you won't feel overwhelmed with a musky, heavy perfume - or a headache for that matter.
