If you think you travel a lot, chances are celebrities travel even more. No matter what they do—model, act, or run a business—they are constantly driving or hopping planes for interviews, filming, or meetings. Plus, who can forget the amount of time they travel for leisure—the Kardashian’s trip to Bora Bora will forever be ingrained in our hearts due to Kim K’s hilarious earring meltdown. And that’s just one example of many, many vacations celebs take.

With all that traveling, they have to take beauty products that they know work and work well. They have no shortage of products at home, and if not, they have a glam team who does. But when it comes to packing a bag, they take only what they absolutely need and love. So scroll through to find out what stars can’t go without, and see if you’ll be making some product changes next time you go to pack.

La Mer

La Mer’s Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream

La Mer has been favored by many a celebrity, but Chrissy Teigen has constantly traveled with the moisturizer since her famous 2015 Instagram shot. She’s so dedicated to the brand, she was its “editor-in-chic” on Instagram for a whole week in 2016. The caption to that famed Instagram post doesn’t elaborate much on La Mer, but for how good it is, it doesn’t need to: “Heading to nyc for #lipsyncbattlelive!!! Baby aspirin, one a day because I’m old, arnica because i am coated in bruises, la mer because I am dry as a bone and peel pads because my skin is made of salt right now. Eye makeup remover and vodka complete the kit.”

Sometimes people don’t travel with a toothpaste, because it can be found everywhere, but when it’s part of your signature smell like Victoria Beckham’s, you do. In an interview with Into the Gloss while talking about her go-to scents she mentioned this “old school” toothpaste. “I like a strong, minty toothpaste. Something like SR. It’s a little old school, but it’s so English and I always make sure to take it with me to LA.”

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

This little bottle is royalty. No, seriously: Newly married Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle always has a bottle of this magic in her bag, meaning it’s fit for a queen … or duchess. She told Allure, “The one thing that I cannot live without when I’m traveling is a small container of tea tree oil. It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all. It’s inexpensive, it’s small enough to carry on, and I bring it with me all the time.”

The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil

If you can’t bring yourself to mask on a plane or long car ride for that matter, take a note from Keira Knightley and slather some rosehip oil on your face instead. She told Vogue UK, “I completely fail to keep myself on an even keel with my skincare when travelling, but I have just discovered rosehip oil, which a friend of mine recommended. Flights are so hard on your skin and they make it so dry, so I gave this a go and it really worked. Now I always travel with it.”

for girls [who are] my age. When you start to think about skincare in the long-term, [the range] is perfect, as it stops the signs of ageing before they appear. I especially like the Glow Booster. 
It helps if my skin is feeling sensitive while travelling.”
