Packing Part 3 – Toiletries

I wish I could just travel with a bar of soap and a toothbrush, but I can’t.

Three weeks in Cuba is just long enough for me to reconsider travel sizes. I will, however, go out on a limb and travel size my toothpaste (assuming that’s one thing I can purchase if need be).

I’m going full size on deodorant, 8 oz Dr. Bronner’s, and definitely sunscreen. Sunscreen is not something I’m going to skimp on!

I considered just going hippie chic for three weeks and using Dr. Bronner’s for everything, including shampoo. However, my hair is fragile. After much thought, I decided on an 8 oz. shampoo. So? I won’t be winning in the ‘lightest load’ category…

Here’s my list of toiletries (brace yourselves):

  • toothbrush
  • toothpaste
  • floss
  • lip balm
  • shampoo
  • Dr. Bronner’s castile soap
  • hand soap sheets (for on-the-road hand washing)
  • sore muscle rub
  • razor
  • travel roll of toilet tissue (75 sheets. If I dole it out at less than 4 a day, they’ll last)
  • 10 – 0.3 fl oz. Her’ Chamois Butt’r
  • 3 Charmin wet wipes (10 in each one, so total of 30). Again, use sparingly.
  • 10 Cooling Body Cloths. I’m bringing those in case I don’t have access to a shower.
  • bug spray
  • q-tips
  • 20 tampons
  • 2 pads
  • deodorant
  • hand and body cream
  • sunscreen
  • industrial-strength concealer
  • blotting tissues
  • lipstick

Total weight: 4.2 lbs
