Road Trip Essentials

Road Trip Essentials

Written by The Strategy

Before COVID came around, we had many travel plans – adventures in Istanbul, a safari in Malawi, and beach getaways to Miami. However, due to closed borders, stay at home orders, and a general fear of Coronavirus, we’ve had to get creative with our travel. Like many others (*read: everyone we follow on Instagram), we took to the road and decided to see some of our own backyard.

Whether our journeys were two-hours, overnighters, or quick jaunts, we believe we’ve narrowed down the ultimate essential list for anyone about to embark on a road trip adventure for themselves. As 2020-seasonaed road-trippers, we pair these essentials with a glove compartment of sunglass options, a bag of TerraChips, and a highly curated playlist. With international travel being off the table for who-knows-how-long, it’s best to stock and up and be ready to hit the road at a moments notice.

A Refreshing Mist

We can’t talk enough about how important we think a good face mist is to have in your road trip arsenal. A quick spritz before getting out of the car keeps your face looking and feeling refreshed.

GLOSSIER SOOTHING FACE MIST
JOWAÉ HYDRATING WATER MIST - FACE - ALL SKIN TYPES EVEN SENSITIVE 200ML
LANEIGE CREAM SKIN MIST SKINCARE ROUTINE WITH AVA LEEROLL OVER OR CLICK IMAGE TO ZOOM IN ...
TOWER 28 SOS DAILY RESCUE FACIAL SPRAYROLL

Throw On When Necessary

If your driving companion likes a high-AC, or twilight brings about a chill to the air, we suggest having some throw-on options safely stowed in your backseat for easy accessibility.

STAUD HOODED SWEATSHIRT
FREE PEOPEL EASY STREET TUNIC SWEATER
LOULOU STUDIO SPERONE WOOL-BLEND SWEATER
NINETY PERCENT   TWO TONE CREW NECK SWEATSHIRT

In The Make-Up Bag

A full face of make-up is not mask nor road trip friendly. Instead, we keep stock of essentials that highlight our features and give a natural no make-up make-up look.

BOBBI BROWN EXTRA LIP TINT
NARS THE MULTIPLE
LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW SHEER POWDER
DIORSHOW PUMP'N'VOLUME MASCARA

Pack It Up

Easy to grab for pouches and medium sized weekenders are highly necessary to carry everything from phone chargers and air pods to wet bathing suits and changes of clothes.

MARC JACOBS SMALL TRAVELER TOTE
LV MONOGRAM POCHETTE COSMETIQUE BAG
PARAVEL WEEKENDER BAG
HUNTER EXTRA LARGE TOILETRY BAG

Happy Road Tripping!
