The beauty products we take on summer vacation have a specific set of criteria to meet before they take up valuable space in our carry-on. Beyond the TSA basics (travel-size liquids only, please), they need to work twice as hard as regular beauty products. They should be multifunctional, enhance our natural features when heavy makeup just won't do, and stand up to summer's heat and humidity.
It seems Vogue's editors are equally discerning about their travel beauty products. In a recent article, its team revealed the number one product they always pack on vacation and why. From a smart cleansing powder that eliminates TSA stress to three-in-one body oil that works as a moisturizer, conditioner, and makeup remover, there are some great recommendations in the list. Shop the three standout products below, along with recommendations from our team.
"Tatcha's cleansing powder is a godsend, and the whole just-add-water element means it doesn't even need to go in that dumb little TSA bag, which leaves room for, well, everything else." — Alessandra Codinha, Vogue culture editor
"In the summer, I want to be able to pick up and go with as little as possible. Goe Oil is great as a skin moisturizer, hair conditioner, and makeup remover—a triple threat beauty product." — Virginia Smith, Vogue fashion director
"I like to wear at least SPF 30 on my body at the beach, so I layer this oil on top of heavier creams for a bit of sheen and an amazing, surf-inspired scent." — Celia Ellenberg, Vogue beauty director
