The 12 Travel Essentials I Never Go Abroad Without

As the founder of a womens leadership platform where I drive programming by taking women out of country, I’m on the road alot. I’ve dialed in my packing strategy.

In fact, I geek out on it.  

European flights arrive in the mornings, so there can be a gap between arrival time and check in. 

The following are the things that always come in my Dagne Dover backpack in case I have to make it through till a 3pm GMT check in time

  1. This Clarity Jetset case from Truffle carries my beauty essentials in case my suitcase doesn’t make it. Amazon sells a cheaper version. In it goes:
  • GM collins Vitamin C serum, eye cream, toner mist, day cream, night cream.  
  • Marvis toothpaste, toothbrush
  • Le Roche Posay baume cicaplaste 
  • Yuni shower sheets
  • Neutrogena makeup remover wipes, astringent
  • deodorant
  • lip balm
  • hand cream
  • Advil and other pills go into these plastic sleeves that can be labeled for the medicine inside.
