Travel-Friendly Beauty

I am excitedly awaiting a mini-vacation to Las Vegas next week and will only be going for 3 nights, which does not merit checking a bag in my opinion. I have friends who pack a suitcase for an overnight visit, but that’s not my style. Only necessities come with me and my motto is: If I forgot it, then it wasn’t important enough to remember, in which case I don’t need it.

….unless what I forgot is a toothbrush, in which a field trip to the local pharmacy or a call to the front desk is made. Nothing says vacation like dragon breath, right? Wrong!


The hardest part about bringing only a carry-on bag is that you’re limited to that 3-1-1 rule (maximum 3 ounces, 1 quart-sized bag, 1 bag per traveler). How is a beauty fanatic supposed to travel like that!? My contact solution has already been axed from the equation because it’ll take up too much space in my bag. I’ll buy some when I check in to my hotel. Obviously I have my priorities in order:)

If I was going to be staying at a W Hotel, this would not be a problem because I would have some fantastic hotel amenities to look forward to, like some Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash, a two-in-one gel cleanser and exfoliator; Soapy Sap to get sudsy in the tub with; and, of course, our world famous Lemon + Sage Body Butter.

The set also includes our Lemon + Sage Shampoo and Conditioner, as well as an adorable baby-sized version of the lemon and sage soap slab.

If you’re afraid of committing to full-sized items, this is the perfect intro to Blisss skin care + body care with generous try-me sizes of our top-selling products. They look tiny, but a little bit goes a long way!

Happy + Safe Travels!

About karenglidden

My name is Karen Glidden and I’m the web content coordinator for Bliss. I will be the primary author of Bliss n Tell. For all your beautification needs, please refer to My background is not beauty related at all. I graduated from Boston University and worked at Starbucks for many years climbing their corporate ladder. Pre-Bliss, my idea of a milky cleanser was the residue left on my face after making cappuccinos all day. I’ve been with Bliss since October 2007 and have been converted into a product worshipper. I’m the MacGyver of skincare. I love inventing new uses to beauty products. You’ll find me putting toner on my legs to help with dry skin, wearing my glamour gloves on the subway to smooth my hands, and using skincare in my hair to tame flyaways. Oh, did I mention that I’m totally frugal. Yes, this little Bliss girl is a ‘recessionista’ for sure (hey, I still have student loans to pay off!) My skin type is normal. I’m not particularly breakout prone unless it’s stress related or hormonal. I’m not too oily, but sometimes dry all over depending on the weather. I’ve got an even skin tone and not too many fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I have some sun damage from years of sun-worshipping sans SPF, my greatest skincare regret in life. My biggest skin concern are fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes and laugh lines around my mouth. Oh, and some uh….cellulite on my bum/thighs. Yes, I am human (you can stop pointing and laughing now, thanks!). My Favorite Bliss Product: I can’t choose just one. It’s a tie between Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and A Tan For All Seasons Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is my five minute beauty fix for just about everything (breakouts, dull/tired skin, dryness). A Tan For All Seasons is my best friend. It’s a stink-free tan in a can. I cannot live without a sun-kissed glow all year (without the UV damage, of course!)
