Skincare on vacation

I thought it would never come but FINALLY after a year of waiting we are on our way to DISNEY! While I feel like I’ve been packing and planning for decades it’s this week where I had that final push of getting everything together and in suitcases to go.

First a little bit about ELEMIS, if you haven’t heard of them they are the #1 luxury British skincare brand. This winter I hit 41 and was looking for a new way to change up my skincare routine and gave ELEMIS  a try. Once I did I heard from so many of you that you LOVE it too. Luckily they also heard and I was able to get you an exclusive *20% off with code RYANNE20 now through June 30, 2021.

*Keep in mind I will be talking about some of their travel sets and gift sets which are NOT included in the 20% off discount but are such a great deal they are worth grabbing full price. The smaller sizes individually are eligible for discount.

Over the past few months you know how much I have become addicted to my ELEMIS cleansing balm and skincare but y’all those tubs are BIG! Today I’m going to chat about what skincare I bring on vacation to ensure I keep healthy, glowing skin AND that we aren’t tipping the luggage scales.

When I started laying out all the products I wanted to take on my trip (and use daily) they would have taken up half of my travel case and I just didn’t have room for that. They I started searching through the Elemis website and saw that SOO many of my favorite products come in either travel size gift sets or can be purchased individually in a smaller size.

First I grabbed the Pro-Collagen Favourites travel kit because it one pack it included nearly EVERYTHING I use but in a smaller size. This kit includes a small size cleansing balm, marine cream SPF 30, overnight cream and single eye mask for $65. I priced this out and just buying the 3 main products (not including the eye mask) it’s $114!!

The only product I use that I don’t see in a smaller travel version is the Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask that I use at night. Since the travel set comes with the individually wrapped Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks I’m excited to try this to see if it’s a good travel replacement for my eye gel.

If you haven’t tried the Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask it’s worth grabbing because after a day of walking, riding, and kids probably having some sort of melt-down this cooling and moisturizing gel feels amazing. Pro tip, throw this in the hotel mini fridge of an even more amazing cooling, relaxing and de-puffing experience!!

But then I was down the rabbit hole of what else does Elemis have in smaller sizes I can grab for vacations and travel? Well I LOVE my Rose Cleansing Balm versus the original scent and found this Pro-Collagen Marine Moisture Essentials set that includes the rose and a larger (but still travel size) version of the Marine Cream.

The only drawback to this set is the Marine Cream is not the SPF30 one that I typically use. For days in the Florida sun I like having that extra layer of sun protection so this set will go in my pool/ gym bag.

For comparison this is my normal size of cleansing balm (105 g) versus the travel size (20g) still enough product for a week long vacation but MUCH more packable. Now another travel tip, while you can’t use my 20% off discount on the travel set you CAN get 20% off with code RYANNE20 on the individual smaller sizes.

For example the under the Rose Cleansing balm you have 4 size options that my code works on!! From the travel size 20g to the super size 200g (double the size of mine pictured here). So I personally prefer to make my own travel kit selecting the exact items that I use daily and then get the 20% off so here’s my packing list:

The great part is all of these are also under TSA guidelines for carryon sizes so even if you are not on your way to a week long of mickey but instead for a weekend girls trip you can have all your great skincare with you on the plane.
