Ran out of your favorite spa products? Or forgot to pack them? Try these quick cheats from hotel freebies...
DIY - Oatmeal Face Scrub
- 1 tbsp oats
- ½ banana (get the brown one - ripe is better, and the hotel is going to toss is anyway)
- 2 tbsp yogurt (aim for plain)
- Plastic fork (to mush) & spoon (to measure)
You can use conditioner as a substitute for shaving gel, and the front desk usually has cheap-o razors when you're in a pinch.
All those samples you sign up for through the mail? This is a great time to use those up. Below are the samples that we brought on this trip. Lotions, toothpaste, soap...everything in this stack is from the "organic & natural" realm of toiletries. Just be sure that you aren't allergic to anything - that would be a big spoiler.
Save any of the little sample sizes that you don't use for your local shelter or church - you paid for them, and they are always in need of single-size toiletries!
