What Do You Take For a Weekend Away?

My other half and I made an unexpected trip out of town, and it occurred to me that it seems as if I pack a LOT of stuff for travel.  It made me curious as to what other people take when spending one night in a hotel.

I usually try to save up deluxe samples and travel sizes to save room.  I’m a skincare snob, so I’m very particular as to what goes on my face.  Unfortunately, not every hotel has great toiletries like L’Occitane or Peter Thomas Roth!  For this little trip, my skincare items included travel packets of Philosophy Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser, my Clarisonic, Peter Thomas Roth toner, AmorePacific Enzyme Peel, sample packet of GlamGlow Youth Cleanse, StriVectin Antioxidant cream, Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment, Caudalie Premier Cru La Crème, Retin-A, Nuxe Reve de Miel Gel Cleanser, and several other items.  Of course, I don’t plan on actually using each and every one of these items- some of them were in my travel case from a previous night out of town.

As for makeup, I brought a plethora of options.  Sadly, if I could have fit more in my case, I would have!  What do you take when you’re going to be away for just one night?  Scroll down to comment below!




  1. I take a cleanser, toner, sunscreen and moisturizer. I keep it simple if I’m not going to be in town. I won’t see anyone I know so I don’t feel like I have to impress anyone. Depends on where we are going I bring make up but 9 out of 10 Times I focus on mascara and a cc cream. Just pinch my cheeks for extra color and voila.

    • I used to carry AmorePacific CC Cushion Compact with me, but I ran out and have too much other stuff to try to use- like my It Cosmetics CC cream. But, your post makes me want to repurchase. I really need to try to pare my list down! 😉
