This post is sponsored by Kimberly-Clark and it works out perfectly because a ton of items from them are things I take with me on vacation every time.
It is peak vacation season right now and I have been on a few since my son got out of school for Summer Vacation. In those trips that I have taken I have started to realize that I should pack a few items that are honestly sort of unexpected. Everyone knows to pack sunglasses, sunscreen, etc… But what about the vacation must haves you actually NEED that you didn’t even know you needed?
Cottonelle Clean Care Box
I love that Cottonelle has put together their Clean Care Box because they have inadvertently (or maybe it was intentional?) put together the perfect vacation must haves. They packed it up nice and pretty and they were on sale for $5 at Target.com. It is funny because within the first day they wen’t live this box sold out. People realized what a great value the box was, and it was probably some of their favorite items as well. Rest assured that you can still get all of the items in the box individually. Now let’s get into what is in it.
Vacation Must Haves
First up on the vacation must haves list is a bath sponge. My husband is perfectly happy with a bar of soap and a rag but I NEED a bath sponge. I like the way my body wash lathers up in a sponge and the ones from Target are my favorite of all time. I always pick up a brand new one when I go on vacation because they aren’t wet from being in my bath or shower and they are so inexpensive I don’t mind leaving them behind when I am traveling home.
Toilet Paper is one of those items that you didn’t know you needed, but you honestly desperately do. It never fails that when I don’t bring along toilet paper on vacation that someone throws a tiny fit. Just about every hotel I have stayed in uses toilet paper that is so thin you can see through it. My husband specifically is such a stickler for having good toilet paper that this is always an issue. I learned a long time ago that it is worth it just to bring a roll or two along.
The next few items are MANDATORY when you are traveling with children, but amazing to have with you if you don’t have kids as well. I always find that when I am on vacation that I sneeze, have the sniffles or SOMETHING. I always keep Kleenex Facial Tissues Slim Packs in my handbag and they always come in handy. The travel size Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Clothes, like the Kleenex, are multifunctional squares of heaven and necessary to have with you at all times. Kleenex also has a facial wipe now that is pretty amazing and I need to carry 10 with me for the kids on a daily basis, even if I am not traveling!
Last but not least on our amazing list of vacation must haves, we need to keep moisture on our hands and lips. When you are on vacation you are likely out of your normal climate and this can cause you to dry out. Replenishing moisture to hands and lips is important because if either of the two are dry you can be left feeling pretty miserable quick. Skinfix Ultra Rich Hand Cream and Lip Repair Balm are amazing. I have been using the hand cream for a few months now, but this is the first time I have used the balm and let me tell you… AMAZING!
