We love a summer vacation as much as the next girl. We also hate packing for those vacations as much as any other product junkie.

When its time for a quick weekend trip or a long getaway in paradise, choosing which beauty items to pack — and which ones to leave behind — can be overwhelming. But the truth is you don’t really need to take your entire makeup bag (or shower caddy or medicine cabinet) with you when you’re on the go. All you need are these 14 essentials which will take care of all of your hair, skin, and body needs so you spend less time primping but still look fabulous while you play.
