Beautycounter Travel Kit Review

When we travel, I’m used to having my beauty and skincare take up some serious weight in my suitcase. It’s so much so that the Clint and Jackson share a suitcase, Dylan has his own (which is a small carry-on so we can take pull-ups on the plane) and then I have a giant bag all to myself. Plus, I’m a notorious overpacked, so I need the space.

On this past trip to Disney I wanted to actually try and travel with some smaller sized skincare to help out with weight and space in my bag. I posted on Instagram that I was looking at this Beautycounter set and I got some responses from ladies who said it was great, so I gave it a try. I had already tried a couple Beautycounter products (see here and here) and liked them, so I figured it was a good time to try some more!

My Favorites

The best thing about this set is that all I needed to add was my eye cream and a sunscreen, and I was all set for the trip. I liked most of the set very well, but three of the products stood out to me as favorites. 

Cleansing Balm // I already love the Colleen Rothschild Cleansing Balm, so I was happy to have another one to try, as well. I think, to compare, the Beautycounter balm is lighter and not quite as hydrating. This made it great for Florida weather, but I think it would be a good one for daytime or for summer. I’m certainly not giving up my CR Cleansing Balm, but it’s good to have options!

Charcoal Mask // I love a mask these days and I really liked this one! I love how it dried on my face and that I could see the gunk being pulled out from my pores (sorry, it’s gross but oddly satisfying to see!). After sunscreen and sweaty days at Disney, it was a great addition to have in my skincare kit. 

Overnight Resurfacing Peel // People have been RAVING over this one all over social media, so I was excited to try it. It’s a gentle peel that you put on after you cleanse. Then you let it dry for a few minutes and top with your moisturizer. I’ll be damned if it didn’t actually make my skin feel brighter and clearer the next morning. I did this on alternating days with the Charcoal Mask and the glow was SO good. 

The other two products, the Vitamin C Brightening Oil and the Adaptive Moisturizer were also good products but didn’t wow me like those three did. The oil definitely felt nice and it was hydrating and added a glow to my skin. I’m interested to see how it compares to the BeautyBio Radiance Face Oil I just ordered. 

When it comes to moisturizer, I’m super picky and haven’t really found a daytime product that I love. I still very highly recommend and love the Tata Harper Creme Riche for nighttime and don’t plan on giving that one up anytime soon – it’s the absolute best!

Have you tried any of these products? Which have you liked/not liked? Any other favorites?
