8 items from iHerb to keep you fresh and beautiful while traveling

When planning for a trip, each girl asks herself whether to pack cosmetics and skin care items – on the one hand, you need them, on the other hand – gosh, they are heavy! Here I put together a list of some great goods that you would appreciate during your travel. is a huge online store for vitamins, food supplements, organic cosmetics and snacks, and so on. If you are not familiar with this website yet, it is worth trying. They are based in the U.S., but shipping all over the world at a reasonable fee. I have personally tried and tested most of the items below.

1. Andalou Naturals Skin Care Mini Kits











Andalou Naturals, Get Started Clarifying, Skin Care Essentials, 5 Piece Kit

A set of 5 mini-bottles with cleansing gel, peeling, pore minimizer, moisturer and cream. Ideal for those who want to maintain their skin care routine even when they are far from home. Light and handy for putting in a hand luggage, gentle and pleasant on the skin. 

You may also try a set "1000 Roses" for sensitive skin or "Brightening Kit" with fruit stems.

2. Hand Sanitizer











Clean Well, Natural Hand Sanitizer, Alcohol Free, Original, 1 fl oz (30 ml)

You always need a sanitizer when you travel outside the "first world" – spray it on your hands before you eat street food in Bangkok or try "pilav" in Tashkent. This one is alcohol-free and smells citrus and herbs.

3. Travel Deodorant Stick











Crystal Body Deodorant, Travel Stick, Deodorant, 1.5 oz 40 g

Aluminium-free deodorant stick in a small stick that fits into any luggage. I also love deodorant towelettes of the same brand – worth to have one or two in carry-on luggage or your day bag, just in case you need to refresh – choose between Chamomile & Green Tea and Pomegranate.

4. Pill Organizer











Apex, 7-Day Pill Organizer, X-Large

A great way to take your medication or vitamins with you on a short trip. Lifehack: you can also use pill organizer to store small items of jewerly – earrings, neck chains, rings – when you are on the road.

5. Mini-brushes











EcoTools, Mini Essential Set, 3 Pieces

If you plan to visit restaurants, theaters or concerts during your trip, this set of mini-brushes may be your best friend. I actually use them even in my daily life, they are soft, earth-friendly and high-quality.

6. Anti-motion Sickness Wrist Bands











Sea Band, Acupressure Wrist Bands, One Pair

I am getting sick on buses and ships almost immediately – a bad luck for a traveler. So these bands are MY BEST FRIENDS! They work on acupressure principle, pressing a particular spot on your wrist and helping you feel better. They are less efficient than anti-sickness pills, but in comparison to the pills they do not make you sleepy and may be used also during short drives.

7. Travel-size Shampoo











Desert Essence, Travel Size, Coconut Shampoo, 1.5 fl oz (44 ml)

Regular shampoo bottles are heavy and you do not really need a big bottle with you. This brand also offers hair conditioner, body wash and lotion. I just hope you like coconuts!

8. Devita Deluxe Skin Care Kit











Devita, Natural Skin Care System, Deluxe Travel Kit, 9 Piece Kit

Another, more sophisticated travel kit. Includes cleanser, scrub, toner, serum, moisturer with sunscreen protection and eye cream.


If you use my personal reference code KIC529 for your first order on, you would get $5 discount.

  1. Awesome products! I always prefer to use something natural and herbal instead of harsh chemicals!

  2. Some good products on your list. The Andalou Naturals kit would be easy to carry and nice to have for a little pampering time while traveling.

      Thank you! I love this brand and using also their shampoo and body lotions in a daily life.

  3. I badly needs #6! Great post!

  4. I carry many similar products as well! And we recently tried the Sea Bands which seemed to alleviate symptoms for my hubby!

  5. I always take hand sanitiser with me wherever we travel. One of my favourite ever products though is from Pure Fiji – they have this hydrating body mist which is just heavenly in hot climates or when you need to freshen up! 

  6. I love IHerb! I live in South Korea and get things delivered here all the time- shipping fee is only $4! AMAZING! I would also recommend the wide range of natural deodarants that they stock. Desert Essence is a great brand- I use their tea tree oil pads, Almond scrub and face wash. Have never tried their shampoos though- will definitely consider these for my next trip!


  7. Looks cool! I'd like to try all of those 🙂 Thanks for the post

  9. Great suggestions for traveling!!

  10. ooh those products all look great! hadn't heard of them before.



  11. The travel size deodorant and those mini brushes are so useful.  I once got stuck in transit for a week. I almost died from the dirt sticking to my skin.

  12. What great looking products, I really could have done with these on my recent trip, but will be looking at these for my next trip x
