Of course, the holidays are the best time of year not only because of all the food, family, and fun you’ll be blessed with but also because it’s the time of year where you get to take off work and do some traveling.
Whether you’ve chosen to go home for the holidays to sit by the fire with your family or you and your honey opted for a fun one-on-one vacation to somewhere tropical that you’ve been dreaming of all year long, chances are you’ll be in need of some travel beauty products.
Every beauty lover knows that going on vacation is more than just getting to purchase new clothes so you can dress to impress. It’s the one time of year where it’s acceptable to blow your cash on the adorable travel sets that you see when you’re in the checkout line at Sephora, Nordstrom, or ULTA.
Normally, you’d think to yourself that they’re not worth purchasing because you’ll go through them so quickly, but when you don’t feel like bringing along all your full-size products, these tiny bottles are straight up magical.
