You guys don’t understand how thrilled I was to spend Easter in Philly with my family. I kind of didn’t think while I was packing, so I made some rookie mistakes. First, I threw in all of my regular sized beauty products. Second, I didn’t bother to weigh my suitcase. When I checked in, I almost had a heart attack when the lady said I owed the airline $75 because my luggage was over the weight limit….by TWO POUNDS. This isn’t exactly something I wanted to hear, especially when this certain airline lets you check in two bags for free.
They’re just doing their job, I get it. LESSON LEARNED.
While shopping at TJ Maxx, I found a foldable duffel bag. How genius is this?
Perfect for emergency situations, light enough to keep in your carry on.
I could have thrown in my 8 pairs of shoes and hair tools into this bad boy. Get a couple ASAP!
Filling up travel containers with my own products is annoying. That’s why I just threw in my regular sized products into my suitcase. I’m not a fan of a lot of travel sized products at drugstores either. On my last few trips, I got to try Carries hair care and skin products.
These TSA compliant products fit perfectly in your carry on. What’s cool about their site is that you can choose your products by destination. If you’re going to a humid location, Carries will pair you with the perfect products for your hair and skin. Dry climate? There’s ultra moisturizing goodies to fit your needs.
I chose their Volumizing Hair Care line. The quality is fantastic, leaving my hair feeling fresh and soft. The scent is clean, but there’s a hint of apples. Never forget the Thermal Protectant Styling Spray, especially if you blow dry and curl your hair as much as I do.
I was pleasantly surprised by Carries Skin Care. I’m particular about what I put on my face, so I was a bit hesitant to try them. I used the serum, moisturizer and eye cream on the plane since flying dehydrates your skin. The products absorbed nicely into my skin, but didn’t break me out. Another cool thing? You can order Carries and have them delivered to your destination.
Do you frequently travel or have an upcoming trip? You can receive a free 3-piece skin care kit with your first purchase. You will receive 50% off your entire first order. The skin care kit is customized to include any 3 items. Click here to purchase.

Carries was kind enough to send me these products. As always, I give my honest opinion.
