Ah, the open road. Adventures in a car travelling across the country with friends or family can be a blast, but also can come with a not so eco-friendly impact. If you’re taking a road trip this summer, here are some of our eco-inspired finds to take with you. They’ll help you look and live beautifully.
First things first, to make sure you look fabulous for all those road side photo ops you’ll want to tote your EcoTools with you. Our Alicia Silverstone Brush Set and Bag has 5 essential makeup brushes scaled down for travel and enough room to stash extra beauty essentials. With those brushes you’ll want to apply a foundation or tinted moisturizer that contains SPF. Try Tarte’s Smooth Operator with SPF 20 since you can get sunburned in the car! Don’t forget your eyes, lips, and cheeks too. Look for a multi-purpose palette that you’ll love using when you get home as well. Try the Spotlight Lip/Eye Palette from Ulta.
Once you’re covered in SPF and looking gorgeous, make sure your skin stays that way by keeping hydrated. A water bottle is a must! We like this fun shaped Bobble water bottle – reusable, fun colored, and available in three sizes. Plus, the built in filter makes sure you have drinkable water almost anywhere. For days when it’s extra hot, you may want to grab a facial mist. The cool water mist keeps your skin feeling quenched and can liven up a tired, dried out complexion. Norway based Maya Water makes one with a refreshing Organic White Tea blend.
To make sure you know where you’re going, in case you don’t have cell service, grab these cool Crumpled City maps. They’re reusable, rip proof, and you don’t have to spend hours trying to refold them. If your trip includes water filled stops, grab one of Ulta’s Candy Store Silicone Wallets. They resist tears, stains, and come in an array of bubbly, fun colors. Plus, if they get squirted by Niagara Falls, all your cash won’t get soaked. Last but not least, don’t forget to stash everything in an eco-friendly suitcase. Walmart has a nice looking American Touister Eco Collection that’s made from sustainable and renewable resources like cotton and bamboo.
Now you can enjoy your bon voyage! How do you travel? We want to know, share your road trip essentials with us in the comments.
