I’m traveling to the idyllic region of Bavaria, southeastern part of Germany, and coming to a place the 2nd time gives me an edge of knowing what to pack. The first I was in Bavaria, half the things I packed proved to be useless! I thought the summer will be hot all through out July. On the contrary, the sun may be out but the wind can be very cool or it can be hot in the morning but wet and cold in the afternoon. This time around, I have packed items suitable for the fickle weather, clothing and beauty products-wise.

My travel must-haves when traveling to Bavaria in the summer:


1.) Skincare – Apart from the usual suspects (facial wash, moisturizer, eye cream, day and night creams), I have my cutie patootie Pixi Glow Tonic to tone and exfoliate dead skin. SPF is a must when using this toner. Must I not forget, Bliss Hand Cream (with macadamia oil and grapeseed extract) to keep my hands soft and moisturized all day.

2.) Mask – I’m seriously addicted to masks and one of the things I purchased for this trip is the Pixi Glow Mud Mask (since my old tube was running out!). I use the mask the night I land to rejuvenate my skin after a long flight.  Loving the Leaders Eye Mask to de-puff bags. A box contains 4 pairs and I’m using them wisely for this trip.

3.) Lip – It’s hard to trim down lipsticks when I go on a trip. This time, I handpicked the beautiful nudes from Pop Beauty (Razzle Rose), Ofra (Manny MUA Charmed and Nude lipliner). I also brought the Pixi Nude lipliner from their latest collection and Wet N’ Wild Bare It All matte lipstick.


4.) Cheek – Have you seen the latest collection of Pop Beauty? The packaging is way too cute and the Pow Wow palette is the perfect pop of color for the summer — peaches and pinks to brighten my face. Another cheek palette I carry is the RCMA cheek and lip cream I bought from Beautylish. Gorgeous colors that can be used on its own or as base of my cheek powder.


5.) Eye Palette – This Eye of Horus Isis Sun Goddess palette has 3 pigmented shimmery shades (Enigma Mist, Chalice Bronze, and sacred Husk). The palette also doubles as a beautiful bronzer. I love the bronze the shade that brings out my morena skin.

6.) Hair – Sleek and handy Tangle Teezer Gold Compact Brush. I also have the travel sized My Amazing Blow Dry to cut blow-drying time.

7.) Tools – I trim down my brushes and select multi-purpose ones, including this Ofra cheek and powder brush. I never leave without my Shu Uemura Lash Curler.

8.) Fragrance – I tend not to bring a full bottle of perfume to save me so weight in my luggage. My mom gave me small Chloe perfumes that are perfect for travel. I can slip them in my day purse or evening clutch.

9.) Sunnies – I carry at least 2 when I travel and my current favorite is the Rayban polarized aviator.

10.) Scarf – A multi-tasking scarf can be  handy, you can use it as an accessory or headband. Picked up a peachy pink and black Bershka scarf to spruce up most of my outfit.

Rain or shine, Bavaria remains to be a gorgeous region filled with rich history and picturesque landscape. Pack ready for the fickle weather and have fun communing with nature!
