Beauty On The Go

I am so excited to once again be a part of the WALMART HERE FOR EVERY BEAUTY campaign!

If you’ve been following along on my IG stories, you got to see my recent trip to Paris, which needless to say, was INCREDIBLE! If you missed it, you can check everything out in the “Paris” highlights on my profile. While there, I got SO many messages about how great my hair, skin and makeup looked and asking what products I had been using. Well today is the day I am here to spill all the details. When traveling, I definitely can’t bring my entire bathroom with me (however much I may want to), but I always make sure to pack all the essentials to make sure I keep with my basic beauty routine. And since I have been living for all of my new WALMART BEAUTY DEPARTMENT finds, I decided it would be perfect to see what travel sized offerings they had for my trip. To say I was blown away is a total understatement!


So lets start with the foundation of beauty – skincare. The first step in any skincare routine for me is always taking off my makeup. I love using the GARNIER SKINACTIVE MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER. It does an amazing job of just melting the makeup right off my face. Then I go in with my favorite makeup wipes ever, the CERAVE MAKEUP CLEANSING CLOTHS. They are super gentle and perfect for getting around your eyes – no one likes the leftover eyeliner/mascara look! Together, I consider these two products my “pre-cleanse”. Then for my final cleanse, I go in with the CERAVE HYDRATING CLEANSER. Now that all my makeup has been removed, this thoroughly cleanses the skin and really balances my skins moisture too.

And last but not least to make sure everything stats hydrated, I have my daytime moisturizer – the CERAVE MOISTURIZING LOTION. It’s a lightweight formula and I love that it doesn’t make me oily throughout the day. For nighttime, I like to use something a bit heavier and always reach for the NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST GEL CREAM. The hybrid formula is the perfect balance for my oily and acne prone skin. Oh and because we all know that I am a face-mask addict, I NEVER travel without one. The OLAY FRESH RESET STICK MASKS are perfect for refreshing dull, tired skin, but have a no mess application and are TSA travel size too!

Now onto hair care. Let me start with my version of a short horror story – NO CONDITIONER. A few years ago, the hubby took me to Paris and when I tried to pack a bottle, convinced me the hotel would have conditioner. Well guess what?! Not only did the hotel not have it, neither did ANY store in a 25 mile radius. At least not that we could find. I went 7 DAYS without being able to brush my hair. These days, I won’t even go on a simple over night trip without my holy grail shampoo and conditioner. Speaking of which, did you know that Walmart has premium brands like LIVING PROOF, BENEFIT COSMETICS, BEAUTY BLENDER and more?!

Walmart now carries not only the full size and jumbo sizes (my fave), but they have travel sizes too – HALLELUJAH! The LIVING PROOF ANTI FRIZZ SHAMPOO and CONDITIONER are the only thing I use to wash my hair. They keep my hair, shiny, healthy, and control all my crazy fly aways. And since my mask addiction doesn’t stop with skincare, I also brought along the GARNIER FRUCTIS AVOCADO HAIR MASK.

Body wash is another thing I am super particular about so when I saw my absolute favorite formula in a travel size at Walmart, you know I stocked up. Believe me when I say the CARESS BURNT BROWN SUGAR BODY WASH is life changing. I refuse to use anything else. And whether I am cleaning my ears, touching up my lips or removing leftover eye makeup, Q-TIPS are always a must. This little travel size case is perfect for gals on the go. And last, but certainly not least – is my “secret” to staying fresh no matter where I go. This adorable little SECRET FRESHIES deodorant ball is perfect for keeping in your travel case or purse.

And because organization is key, I found the absolute cutest PINK TRAVEL CASE. It’s the perfect size and has customizable compartments too. When I am not using it for all my travel toiletries, it actually doubles as my makeup case. It even has pockets for my makeup brushes.

  • They say ignorance is bliss - and I myself have been guilty of it. Take this photo for example, so blissfully unaware. But I refuse to let it go on any longer! It’s hard to find the right words to describe my thoughts and feelings with what’s going on in the world right now. Sad, scared, distraught, angry, ashamed - these are just a few.  But imagine how they must be feeling! Those who have been mistreated and faced with unthinkable injustice every day based on the color of their skin.

The sad truth is that what’s going on in the world, isn’t something that suddenly just happened. Its BEEN happening, every day, all over the world. The reaction is the result of decades and even centuries worth of pent up fear, sadness, frustration and so much more.

Although I will never be able to fully understand the struggles people of color face on a daily basis, I am committed to support them and learn how to find a better path forward - TOGETHER. It’s not acceptable to simply be “not racist”. We must actively be ANTIRACIST and ban together. We must educate ourselves and educate our children. There are people whose lives are literally depending on it

I’ve been researching, donating, talking to others, educating myself and learning how to be a better ally. If you are not sure where to start, I’ve shared several resources on my stories and you can find tons more with simple search. I urge you to GET INVOLVED! We need to stop being bystanders and take action! #blacklivesmatter #antiracist✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 •
And while I will continue to share and spread the message, I will also do my best to keep a sense of normalcy with my posts for those who might want some of that too. ❤️
