{The Ultimate Travel Beauty Kit + Giveaway | Swipe Right}


When it comes to my travel beauty kit, I've routinely sacrificed quality for size in the past opting to cram my toiletry bag with sample packets of random beauty tchotchkes amassed over the years. It was like a Tinder marathon as I was dating different products every single day and tossing each of them out at the end of every night. 


On my road trip, I decided to break the cycle of one night hookups by packing travel friendly beauty essentials with actual staying power. And instead of sticking to my current skincare and beauty regimen, I utilized my month of travelling to put a few new products to the test. After all, if they can step up, stand up, and keep me happy for an entire month under erratic and unpredictable travel conditions then they're definitely coming home with me.

Read to the bottom to win your very own ultimate travel beauty kit from Planet Beauty and Pacifica!

{Peter Thomas Roth 4 Piece Laser-Free Resurfacing Kit via Planet Beauty}
The Ultimate Travel Beauty Kit
Prior to my road trip, cycles of hormonal acne causing scarring and uneven texture was cramping my style. I needed a fix. I'd heard great things about this kit but was hesitant to make the investment plunge without trying the products first so the travel friendly kit was the perfect solution. After over a month of day and night application, I have fallen in love with the non-abrasive, gentle enough to use daily exfoliating scrub, the resurfacer serum which smooths out the skin while boosting elastin, and my favorite product, the moisturizing gel-cream. It's a miracle product that's velvety to the touch and leaves my skin feeling buttery soft and deeply moisturized throughout the day. The only product I wouldn't repurchase from the kit is the eye serum as I didn't observe any noticeable improvement.

{Kate Somerville Clearing Mask via Planet Beauty}
The Ultimate Travel Beauty Kit
I've been a fan of Kate Somerville products for years as she is one of the foremost skincare gurus in LA. While on the road, I used the clearing mask every other day to keep acne at bay. And it worked fabulously as I didn't experience my usual bout of travel acne induced by environmental factors and stress.

{Alterna Bamboo Volume Travel Kit via Planet Beauty}
The Ultimate Travel Beauty Kit
Okay, I admit it. The reason I wanted to try Alterna products was because Katie Holmes is the spokeswoman and she has amazing hair. And now I know why. Alterna's proprietary and all-natural organic ingredients infuse hair with plant-derived melanin to protect hair against UVA and UVB light sources. But most importantly, my hair felt smooth and bouncy after every lather! I left the hairspray and uplifting root blast in the convertible so I could breathe life and bounce into my wind blown hair anytime, anywhere.

{Pacifica}
The Ultimate Travel Beauty Kit
{Pacifica Solar Palette}
The full set of highly pigmented natural mineral eye shadows, blush, bronzer, and ridiculously fabulous highlighters covered all the bases from day to night. The coconut highlighters blew my mind as they're matte to the touch yet glides onto my cheekbones, brow bones, and lips with velvety softness creating a subtle and warm glow. It's by far my favorite highlighter.

{Pacifica Eyeliner in Natural}
For someone with a yellow undertone, it's difficult to find a nude color liner that matches my skin tone and is light enough to brighten and make my eyes pop which is why I'm so happy I found this liner! I've been using it every single day.

{Pacifica Coconut Kiss Creamy Lip Butter}
I kept the coconut water infused lip butter in my purse and used it as both a hydrating lip balm and as a cheek highlighter as its subtle hint of pink hue complimented everything. It smells like strawberry, my favorite fruit, so I was eager to apply it everyday as I wasn't eating much fruit much less strawberries on the trip.

{Pacifica California Star Jasmine Perfume Roll-On}
Jasmine is my favorite scent and I make it a habit to purchase travel size roll-on perfume to test out fragrances before getting the full-size bottle. The jasmine scent is subtle, fruity, and complex as it's mixed with lush notes of driftwood. I love the packaging, the scent, and the travel friendly roll-on. It's perfect.

{My Other Bag "Stella" Pochette}
The Ultimate Travel Beauty Kit
I crammed all my new travel beauty favs into my toiletry bag and even had room for my Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee, the perfect road trip companion as it helped me stay refreshed and energized on the road!

Planet Beauty, Pacifica, and I have teamed up to help you build your ultimate travel beauty kit by giving away a set of the travel products used on my road trip! Good luck and I hope you get to satiate your summer wanderlust!

  13. Wait, so I'm confused, what exactly do we win? Did we win the Peter Thomas Roth kit or do we win the Kate Somerville or the other kit that shown? Or do we just win bits from all kits? I all looks awesome. I love Peter Thomas Roth and I have yet to try Kate Summerville. My can't live without product is Peter Thomas Roth anti aging cleanser and either my Konjac sponge or handheld face cleanser.

  14. If I only have to choose one product it'll have to be Coconut oil. I use it as a cleanser, moisturizer/lotion, and to deep condition hair. Plus it's also great to cook with, as a spread on toast, and mixed in coffee :) So many uses.

  16. Instead we suffer from it, by storing too much fat and rarely, if ever,
    burning it. Power outlets make sure that you are getting problem free experience even with your old laptops because they may
    turn dark without power outlets. The author of this GFP article loves fruit and realises that this affair was fostered in childhood where his father grew many varieties of fruit trees in his home yard.

  41. Thank you for this Very Generous Giveaway; I Could definitely use it! I'm an Esthetician but I had to Move back home with parents & Can No Longer Work at the Moment because of some Health Issues! I am Grateful to my Parents for All they Do & How Supportive they have been! I Can No Longer Afford the Luxuries of Skin Care & Make Up at the Moment so it would be Nice to Win but I'm Sure Others may Need & Want It just as Badly as I do! My Favorite Product that I Can't Live Without is my Milani Brow Fix Kit! I have Some Thyroid Issues which has caused me to have Very Thin & Sparse Eye Brows! The Milani Brow Kit has 2 Brow Powder Shades, 1 Highlighter Powder, a Cute Little Applicator, & a Wee Little Pair of Tweezers, All in One Convenient Compact! I have Found that the Brow Powder gives a More Natural Look in Comparison to a Brow Pencil! I Never Feel Complete until I Fill My Brows In! I have Enjoyed Reading Your Blogs & Thanks Again for The Giveaway! Have a Great Day & God Bless! Good Luck to All! Jana Williams
