A bag full of travel-sized essentials for face, body, and hair—to help you stay perfectly groomed on your next trip.
What it is formulated to do:
ALTERNA Replenishing Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner restore moisture and protect hair from color fade, daily stresses, and future damage. Bumble and bumble’s all-in-one hair powder features dry shampoo, style extending, and volume benefits. L’Occitane’s decadent Almond Oil features a foaming oil-to-milk texture that leaves skin satiny-smooth. The Triple Action Cleansing Water is a no-rinse micellar water that cleanses the face and eyes effectively in one simple step. Origins’ two-in-one purifying mask and skin refiner is formulated with Canadian willowherb, Persian silk tree, and a potent blend of actives to smooth, refine pores, and boost skin’s overall quality. Infused with egg white and egg yolk extract, the Egg Cream Sheet Mask is a milky, serum-enriched microfiber sheet mask to instantly hydrate for a bright and radiant complexion.
LAVANILA’s award-winning, aluminum-free deodorant is 100 percent natural, safe, and effective, while the multibenefit, lightweight Rosewater Balancing Mist hydrates and balances the complexion, naturally sets makeup, and refreshes the skin and senses, and Murad’s Radiance Peel is an intensive treatment that brightens, smooths, and hydrates to restore radiance, even skintone, and enhance luminosity. Skin feels fresh, healthy, and bright with Ole’s oil-free, lightweight moisturizer’s silky whipped texture that melts into skin. Tarte’s portable, non-chemical sunscreen helps to protect, moisturize, brighten, and re-invigorate skin for a youthful-looking appearance, as Sunday Riley’s next-generation retinoid oil improves skin plumpness and helps fight the appearance of wrinkles, redness, and pores for visibly clearer, healthy-looking skin.
Look at this baby cake! This set is definitely heavier than average Sephora Favorite kits. Sephora is very generous on the size of this kit!
It comes in a clear cosmetic bag which is great for TSA security when you traveling by plane.
This kit is cute and would be a great little gift for frequent travelers or for your next trip! You will also see below that almost all items the set available in travel size option. Visit new page at Sephora where you can score travel size beauty items here.
The back of the package lists all items and you can see all ingredients inside too.
This set contains:
Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder | Full size is $27 Travel size is $12
An all-in-one hair powder featuring dry shampoo, style extending, and volume benefits.
-Use it while styling dry hair or to extend the life of a blow-dry.
-Just shake gently at roots and massage (like you would a shampoo) to create instant lift and make yesterday’s style ready-to-wear again
IcanGWP Review: It smells lovely as Bumble and Bumble products always do.The bottle is very lightweight and comes with very tiny hold to shake the powder out. Very fine-milled powder and doesn’t leave any residue on my hair. It’s easy to use. Dark color hair will be able to use this product just fine (keep in mind to not overdo). It delivers everything it promises. It works like a great dry shampoo to remove all greasiness and gives a fresh just-washed hair look. Very natural looking result. Best of all – it adds a little volume too. I haven’t tried to blow dry or style after using it yet. People reported that it is great for adding texture after blow drying. Comparison to aerosol dry shampoo? I think that this one contains less chemical and thus doesn’t add funky smell to my hair. This is a top item everyone should have in their suitcase – very versatile.
Currenlty, purchase any product from Birchbox, get two free Bumble and bumble. Surf Shampoo & Conditioner Packette Duos use promo code SURFDUO.
L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil | Full size is $25 Travel size is $9.50
The Almond Shower Oil transforms into a silky foam upon contact with water to cleanse and soften skin.
IcanGWP Review: The average review is 4.5. Its smell is DIVINE. It is a light almond scent. It’s subtle and very sweet. It is not transformed into foam very much. It has a slight lather. My skin is so soft and almond oil seem to stay hydrating my skin for a while. I like the idea of showering with oil, it’s great! People love to use this product after-shave. If you have seen L’Occitane Shower Oil from previous hotel stay, this one is probably double or triple the size. It is big and will be good for a week of vacation.
There is also a great L’Occitane Almond Indulgence Duo for $16.
Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water | Full size is $12 – $20 Travel size is $6
A no-rinse micellar cleansing water with a texture ideal for delicate skin.
This product cleanses the face and eyes effectively in one simple step. Its soap-free formula features cleansing spheres that effectively capture and eliminate impurities and makeup. It also includes HydroSenn+, a natural ingredient proven to deliver immediate and long-lasting hydration more effectively than hyaluronic acid. The 13.5 oz bottle features a cleverly designed pump dispenser.
A few suggestions from Sephora for alternative usage:
-For fresh-feeling revived skin in the morning, use a cotton pad to apply cleansing water to face using gentle strokes.
-To relax eye area, apply cleansing water directly to closed eyelids with a cotton pad.
IcanGWP Review: The average review is 4.3. People really enjoy using this product because you can just go to bed without rinsing your face! The smell of Sephora cleansing product that they are provided in store is not my most favorite. I think that it is this one (please confirm). They share similar scent to me. It can do a good job of cleaning. It struggles a bit with waterproof mascara. It is also a little bit greasy. I am biased here because of the fragrance. Bioderma Sensibio H2O (8.4 oz $10.25) is the gentle micellar cleansing water I want to try. It is not well-known here but it is more popular and Europe and Asia.
Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel | Full size is $55
An intensive treatment that brightens, smooths, and hydrates to restore radiance, even skintone, and enhance luminosity.
Intensive-C® Radiance Peel is an easy-to-use at-home spa treatment targeting environmentally damaged skin. It instantly exfoliates and brightens for enhanced skin radiance, and has brightening results comparable to a professional peel. Great for all skin types, it features an immediate tingling sensation after application and cooling affect after removal.
Origins Original Skin™ Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay | Full size is $26 Travel size $4
A two-in-one purifying mask and skin refiner that’s formulated with Canadian willowherb, Persian silk tree, and a potent blend of actives to smooth, refine pores, and boost skin’s overall quality.
Glow big with this innovative, multitasking mask. Made with Mediterranean rose clay, Canadian willow herb, and exfoliating jojoba beads, it helps gently deep clean while refining skin’s texture. Pores appear to vanish and clarity is restored for a radiant, youthful-looking complexion that’s silky-smooth to the touch.
IcanGWP Review: I haven’t try this one yet. The average review is 4.6. Really good reviews. People like the exfoliation beads this mask contains. Quite unique to have both clay and exfoliant in the same mask!
ALTERNA CAVIAR Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo | Full size is $32 – $69 Travel size is $9 (a $11 value)
A luxe, sulfate-free shampoo that restores moisture while protecting hair from color fade, daily stresses, and future damage.
Revitalize brittle hair and bring back silky radiance with Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Moisture Shampoo. It restores and rebalances moisture while protecting color and improving the overall appearance of dry, brittle hair. Infused with Alterna’s Age-control Complex®, which includes caviar extract, vitamin C, and cytokines, your hair will be left stronger, healthier, and younger-looking. It’s also formulated with Seasilk®, Enzymetherapy®, and Color Hold® with UVA/UVB protection to shield from color fade, daily stresses, and future damage.
LAVANILA The Healthy Mini Deodorant in Pure Vanilla | Full size is $14 Travel size is $8 Available in 6 options
An award-winning, aluminum-free deodorant that is 100 percent natural, safe, and effective.
Finally, a natural deodorant that works. Get superior odor protection with this 100 percent natural, freshly scented deodorant. Soothing essential oils blend with beta-glucan technology fight odor effectively while soothing, conditioning, and nourishing the delicate underarm area. It goes on clean, with no sticky wetness, and delivers long-lasting, luxurious results.
IcanGWP Review: I am trying to keep using aluminum-free deodorant. I am glad Sephora put this product into the kit. Luxury, natural and healthier deodorant is always a good addition to everybody routine. This is a great aluminum-free deodorant (not antiperspirant). It comes in a stick. Its texture firmer than usual deodorant. So it will be great for plane travelling (no melt or leak from pressure). This product smells nice (powdery) but not overpowering. It dries quickly. This product works as a good deodorant should. Keep in mind that you are sweating if you are using deodorant so reapplying might be a good idea. I want to try the Vanilla Coconut one too! The average review is 3.8. It’s quite low. I think that to be fair to this product, you may compare it to previous deodorant you have tried not antiperspirant. There’s also sensitive version here.
I will provide a little bit information about the difference between an antiperspirant and a deodorant and aluminum in antiperspirant. You may skip to the next items.
What is the difference between a deodorant and an antiperspirant?
Antiperspirants are designed to prevent you sweating + kill bacteria, while deodorants don’t stop you sweating but kill bacteria and mask underarm smells with fragrance. There are some studies revealed the possibility of using aluminum antiperspirants to cause breast cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease and kidney disease (thanks: Webmd.com).
ALTERNA CAVIAR Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Conditioner | Full size is $32 – $69 Travel size is $9 (a $11 value)
A luxe, lipid-rich daily conditioner that restores moisture and continually hydrates while protecting hair from daily color-fade, stresses, and future damage.
CAVIAR Anti-Aging® Replenishing Moisture Conditioner transforms dry, brittle hair by sealing in a rich blend of lipids and essential ingredients to continually nourish and hydrate the hair. This conditioner is infused with Seasilk®, Age-control Complex®, Enzymetherapy®, and Color Hold®. It not only helps maintain moisture, but also protects from daily stresses and delivers what your hair needs to become strong, healthy, and younger-looking.
IcanGWP: If you like Alterna Caviar product, Beauty Brands has Alterna Caviar Repair RX Split Ends Mend that claims to repairs 93.3% of split ends after just one use. Also, you can use code EC12768 to get $3.50 off. Plus, receive a FREE 19-piece BB Loves Bag with any $35 prestige makeup, skincare, fragrance or bath & body purchase. Valued at: $130.
tarte Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | Full size is $32 Travel size $12 (currently out of stock)
A portable, non-chemical sunscreen that helps to protect, moisturize, brighten, and re-invigorate skin for a youthful-looking appearance.
IcanGWP Review: It is a one of a dream lotion with sunscreen for oily, combination and acne prone skin! On a hot summer day, can you imagine layers of toner, serum, moisturizer and sunscreen + makeup? It is quite difficult to find a good lotion with sunscreen that won’t clog pore, and this one do not (for me)! It is not leaving much grease on the skin. Just a sheen of active sun protection ingredients (Titanium Dioxide 3.36%, Zinc Oxide 4.13%). It doesn’t leave any white cast behind. The average review is 4. There is a good list of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and skin-repairing ingredients. The quality is great and the price is right too. If you are shopping for new sunscreen there are a couple good options here including brand new Clinique sunscreen fluid just added today (with 7pc Cliniuqe gift and 22pc sitewide gift at Nordstrom):
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist | Full size is $35
A multibenefit lightweight mist that hydrates and balances the complexion, naturally sets makeup, and refreshes the skin and senses.
After cleansing, this hydrating mist balances and conditions the complexion, preparing the skin for maximum absorption of serums and moisturizers. Rose essential oil, marshmallow, and aloe help to hydrate and soften skin, while grapefruit seed extract provides antioxidant protection. This uplifting rose mist instantly refreshes the skin and can be spritzed throughout the day for a quick pick-me-up. It’s quick drying and non-sticky finish makes it the perfect final step to keep makeup looking fresh and dewy all day long.
IcanGWP Review: The average review is 4.4. People use it as toner, refreshing mist or makeup setting spray. You will adore this mist OR the rose smell can be overpowering if you are not into floral scent. It dries quickly. Just so you know if you plan to travel by plane, this item was leaked when I receive it – may be just a bad luck. They also have the intense version and kit see more here.
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment | Full size is $85 – $175 Travel size $24
A dual-action exfoliator that smooths and polishes to reveal a glowing, radiant complexion in as little as one use.
- -This product may cause the skin to tingle and flush slightly for a short time.
- -For sensitive skin, leave on for less than one minute, or use ExfoliKate® Gentle instead.
IcanGWP Review: I haven’t seen anything like this before. It is so very green! It makes me think of Lipstick Queen Frog Prince Cream Blush $24. Fresh smell and creamy texture with very fine plastic scrub beads. I am a little worried because of the warning. I hope that my skin can take it because this tube is $24! I use it as a cleanser (including eye area) and do not leave it on my skin any longer than other cleanser. I do not experience any tingle or flush. People with blackheads love it. I would not recommend this product to extra sensitive skin. There’s also Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Gentle Exfoliating Treatment. There are many starter kits with these products in them see here. Also, Nordstrom is offering up 4pc gift with $200 KATE SOMERVILLE purchase + 22pc gift with $175 beauty purchase.
Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation | Full size is $38 – $65 Travel size is $14 (a $22.50 value)
This oil-free moisturizer has a unique lightweight, whipped texture that penetrates skin and with essential moisture. It’s infused with fruit acids to gently exfoliate, refining your skin’s rough, uneven texture, tone, and dullness and while it promotes cell turnover. Pea extract, sugar, and vitamin C work together to fade dark spots and even skintone. Antioxidant protection helps defend skin from future damage. It can be used as a base for makeup applicaiton, and it leaves skin looking and feeling soft, healthy, nourished, and radiant.
IcanGWP Review: I tested out this Sheer transformation brightening moisturizer. It is indeed very sheer and has no smell. For those who usually not getting along well with AHA, you may give this product a try. This product is a very nice and gentle AHA + Vitamin C product to begin with. Full size comes in a clear glass bottle, make sure you store it in the drawer or cabinet. You might also want to try Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders or 3 Little Wonders mini here. There are over 1700 reviews on Sephora and people like these sets so much.
Too Cool For School Egg Cream Sheet Mask | Full size is $24 Travel size $6
A milky, serum-enriched microfiber sheet mask infused with egg white and egg yolk extract to instantly hydrate for a bright and radiant complexion.
IcanGWP Review: This is my favorite item in the kit and probably this month!
WHY? Let me start from – What is egg yolk extract in this egg cream mask? Egg yolk is basically water, cholesterol and more lipids. They are great as an emollient and water-binding agent for skin. The rest? There are a lot of Antioxidants, Cell-Communicating and Film-Forming/Holding Agents, Emollients, Absorbent, Thickeners/Emulsifiers. It contains Myrciaria Dubia Fruit Extract (Camu Camu from Peter Thomas Roth famous line). Even the preservatives they use are good ones (1,2-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin).
The experience is top notch as well. It is not a regular sheet. It is more like silicone that truly seal with your skin. It reminds me of facial I have gotten in the spa. I can’t believe I can buy it for $6. There is no cooling effect or tingling. I put it on for 10 minutes (they suggest 15 minutes) because this is the first usage. My skin is more elastic and plump immediately. Once I test my skin by pressing my finger on my cheek, it springs back! I was like what – $6 mask? The result is truly AMAZING! I have a couple of bad dry skin patches from the 5-day beach vacation. They are almost all gone (just only one spot left). I am so impressed by this mask that I want to investigate more products from them! See all Too Cool for School. They have 2 more sheet mask products.
Average review is 4.1. People complaint about: the size is too small, gross (it’s egg, it’s gross), too runny and dropping everywhere on their face or application is too difficult.
There is a little bit of fragrance in this product. Sephora is offering single mask and 5 sheet set. FYI – The ingredients of single and 5 sheet set are different. You can also purchase Too Cool for School at Memebox, Amazon, and Birchbox.
Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil | Full size is $105
Luna Sleeping Night Oil contains high potency, purified grade lactic acid to instantly correct dullness, plump the look of lines, and exfoliate the skin. With continued use, the appearance of stubborn hyperpigmentation, imperfections, and the visible signs of aging are reduced for a healthy-looking complexion. Enhanced with licorice for brightening, it helps to clarify and correct the appearance of imperfections for immediate, smooth radiance

What I thought?
This set is AMAZING! This Sephora Favorites The Ultimate Travel Bag contains 3 haircare items, 2 body care items and 9 skincare items – a $118 value. This kit does cover almost everything you need for a trip! I always having so much fun with makeup sampler. But I think that skincare sampler is a great way of trying a variety of brands and products. To see if it will break you out, too strong, will it clog your pores, will you like its scent, will you have some improved result and so on. I really like Too Cool For School Egg Cream Sheet Mask (as you can tell) and I will keep purchasing it. The clear cosmetic bag might be the right size that TSA allow (please confirm). If you love high quality skincare, you should give this awesome kit a try. Finally, this is a great little gift for frequent travelers or something handy for your next trip!
