your ultimate spring break packing list

your ultimate spring break packing list

Flights booked, rental car secured and hotel room reserved — yeah, it’s finally time for spring break! But, before you head out on that dream vacation, make sure to pack everything you need. Not sure where to start? We’ve got you! From travel-size skincare kits to the perfect pair of sunnies, we’ve put together the ultimate packing list that will have you fully prepared for whatever your spring break trip brings.


1. Travel-size skincare

Just because you’re on spring break doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your everyday skincare routine. Travel-size skincare kits are compact and lightweight, so you can easily toss them into your luggage. Our glow to go vegan skincare kit even meets TSA carry-on requirements. You can shop our travel kit here.


2. Sunscreen

Protecting your skin is crucial, which is why you HAVE to pack sunscreen — even if you’re headed somewhere sunny or not. It will help shield your skin from UV rays and prevent sunburns, premature aging, and skin cancer. You can feel confident that you’re taking care of your skin with sunscreen on your list.


3. Hat

Another great way to protect your skin from the sun is by wearing a wide-brimmed hat. It will shield parts of your face, neck, and ears from direct UV rays, as well as any reflected rays from the water and sand. Plus, these types of hats are now super trendy, so it’s a total win-win!


4. Sunglasses

Did you know that even when it’s cloudy, harmful UV rays can still creep through? This is why we recommend packing sunglasses no matter where your destination is. Your eyes are just as vulnerable to the sun as your skin, so wearing shades will help protect them and keep them healthy.


5. Camera

Whether it’s a polaroid camera, your smartphone, or a GoPro, your packing list isn’t complete without a camera! It’s the best way to capture all your spring break memories, so you can always look back and reminisce on the good times.


6. Tote bag

Of course, you’ll need a tote bag to carry around all your everyday essentials — like your wallet and phone. Here at glowoasis, when you purchase our calming essentials kit or daily glow trio you’ll receive an ultra-soft (and fashionable) pink microfiber tote bag that’s ideal for your vacation.


7. Hair care accessories

Since you’ll be taking lots of pictures on your trip, hair care accessories like scrunchies, headbands, and hair clips are a must. These items push your hair back to keep you feeling cool, refreshed, and fabulous even in the hottest weather. 

For a limited time only when you spend $35 at glowoasis, you’ll get a FREE fast-drying hair towel and scrunchie that you can bring with you on your trip.


8. Swim attire

Have a relaxing beach or pool day planned during your vacation? Pack a swimsuit, cover-up, and flip-flops. These three items will complete your swim look as you lounge by the water.


9. Jacket

Even if you’re heading to a warm-weather destination, don’t forget to pack a light jacket. It can get chilly at night, especially if you’re vacationing near the water. By bringing a jacket, you’ll be ready for any changes in the weather. 


10. Snacks

When you’re busy on the go, you can build up quite the appetite! Pack some easy-to-eat snacks — like protein bars, trail mix, and fresh fruit — that you can take with you for some much-needed fuel.
