Hi Wander Beauties. It’s Lindsay Ellingson, Co-founder and Creative Director of Wander Beauty. After spending hours and hours in a makeup chair during my career as a model, experimenting in my own bathroom, and testing new formulas for Wander, I’ve tried so many amazing beauty products over the years. But many times, I find myself reaching for the same tried-and-true products. Today, I’m sharing 10 of my must-have essentials with you. Constantly traveling from one place to the next, I love products that are multitaskers, easy to use, and portable. Let’s take a peek into some of the products I can’t live without...

Wander Beauty Glow Ahead Face Oil

I love this face oil for so many reasons. I apply a few drops to my fingertips and pat it into my face. My skin is left radiant, bouncy, and makeup-ready after application. I love that it’s infused with nourishing ingredients. The standout ingredients (in my opinion) are the raspberry seed oil and evening primrose oil. The raspberry seed oil acts as a natural sunscreen and evening primrose oil instantly absorbs leaving my face moisturized.

Jason Rosewater Shower Gel

My Jason Rosewater Shower Gel is a must-have. It has an easy-to-use pump and is free of sulfates, parabens and phthalates. I am extremely passionate about using clean beauty and on top of that, the shower gel smells amazing.

Playa Everyday Shampoo 

I have been loving Playa Everyday Shampoo. It is a gentle, hydrating, coconut-derived cleanser and it smells like a beach vacation. Besides smelling great, it cleans effectively, and never leaves my hair feeling dry or straw-like.

I have been using True Botanicals Pure Radiance Body Oil immediately after I shower. It is infused with chia seed oil and hemp seed oil which are rich in essential fatty acids that improve skin barrier health. It locks in moisture effectively and leaves my skin silky smooth with a beautiful glow.

Erno Laszlo Sensitive Cleansing Oil

This cleansing oil is an essential when removing my makeup, since I have sensitive skin. This oil is nourishing and does not leave my skin feeling dry! It gives me a deeper cleanse and removes makeup easily while leaving my face moisturized and radiant.

Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Rose Gold Eye Masks

Our limited edition Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Rose Gold Eye Masks work wonders on my under eye area, especially since I travel so much. I leave them on for about 10-15 minutes and they leave my skin with an instant refreshed look. The rose gold foil gently warms skin, allows the serum to absorb deeper and instantly cools with aloe leaf juice, plumps with hyaluronic acid and smooths with calendula flower.

Gua Sha Face Tool

The Gua Sha Face Tool is super cool. Mine is actually from Amazon! My facialist told me that it is extremely important to massage your face so I use this to give myself a lymphatic massage. I do gentle strokes starting from my neck or jawline and it feels like a facial! I make sure to take this with me on long flights to give myself a quick facial massage on the plane.

Wander Beauty Unlashed Mascara

This is my favorite volumizing mascara. It took us two years to formulate Unlashed, and it’s one of the products that I’m most proud of. Wander Beauty Unlashed Mascara has an amazing formula that doesn’t flake or smudge on me throughout the day. It takes my lashes to new heights and I love how awake I look after application. It is buildable for days where I want to feel extra glam.

Bioderma Micellar Water

I love cleansing! Bioderma Micellar Water is a staple in makeup artists’ kits backstage. It’s extremely gentle and feels like water, without any of the harsh effects of tap water. It takes off all traces of makeup and I use this repeatedly on long flights because while you’re thousands of feet in the air. The air in the plane is constantly being recirculated and I prefer not having impurities sitting on my face for hours.

Ildi-Pekar Tissue Repair Serum

This is a serum that I have been loving. Ildi-Pekar Tissue Repair Serum is a 100% natural facial and body serum that has CBD oil which is known to be a powerful anti-inflammatory for skin. This luxurious serum calms my skin and reduces redness while leaving my face nourished.
