Your go-to, travel-friendly must-haves for any road trip!

It’s summertime, which means it’s time to plan some fun summer road trips! If you’re looking for some travel-friendly haircare, skincare, and makeup essentials to bring on your next road trip, check out our list of must-have items that are perfect for toting on your next road trip- long or short!


Summer road trips can mean long car rides in the sweltering heat. For anyone who has had issues with humidity before, this calls for a hair emergency! The Shield Anti-Humidity Spray from amika is the perfect go-to for muggy weather when your locks need to beat the heat! This product helps shield hair from frizz, humidity, and 450-degree heat which is ideal for protecting your hair while keeping it looking smooth and luscious all day long.

If you’re driving on the open road with the windows down, your hair is definitely blowing about. Although we all love the feeling of having the wind in our hair, this can also be a recipe for disaster, as the wind can cause your hair to get super tangly. A brush is a must-have hair care item for any road trip because you need to be able to tame your mane after having the windows down. This hairbrush from Verb both detangles and straighten wet or dry hair, leaving your hair super sleek, healthy, and tangle-free!


Travel-friendly skincare is a must for any road trip! Car rides can be long and exhausting for your skin, which needs some TLC to keep it looking healthy and glowing. Make sure to invest in a lightweight sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful sun rays that can stream in through car windows. The Supergoop! Glowscreen not only has built-in SPF 40, but it’s both a skincare product and a makeup primer that will protect your skin and keep it looking luminous and glowy all road trip long. 

When driving with the windows down, your skin can also start to feel super dried out, which is why it’s important to pack a moisturizer that you can reapply. This mini body cream by Sol De Janeiro not only smells amazing, but is also extremely hydrating. As a bonus, it also gives your skin a hint of shimmer for an overall dewy look. 


Don’t forget your SPF when it comes to packing road trip-friendly makeup! This Butterstick Lip Treatment SPF 25 from Kiehl’s is incredibly nourishing and has SPF protection for your lips. This is a travel must-have because it’s small and compact, and can easily fit into any purse or bag. 

Mini makeup is the ultimate road trip hack, which is why these mini Bite Beauty Power Move Lipsticks are perfect for adding just the right amount of colour to your pout. These colours are ultra-wearable but the lipsticks themselves are super moisturizing and hydrating while offering a lightweight but long wear soft-matte finish.
