Borders worldwide are opening slowly, and if you’re still apprehensive about travelling far but need a beach vacation, then Southeast Asia has plenty. With COVID-19 looking like it’s here to stay (how many variants have we had now?), a beach holiday is one of those things you can do to practice social distancing.
Packing for a vacation can sometimes be tricky because you have to consider many things. You want to pack light but right, so if you’re planning on some fun in the sun, then there are essentials you must include in your bag.
Here is a list of some basic (and non-basic) products worth packing, and they’re all under RM88 each.
1. Bamboo toothbrushes by The Hive (RM15)
If you’re not a fan of hotel toothbrushes, then bring your own, and we highly recommend this bamboo toothbrush by The Hive Bulk Foods. Available in plenty of colours, it is recycle-able and compostable.
2. Abby Two-Piece by La Bumba (RM79)
ZAFIGO PERKS: Get 10% off the total bill when you use the code ZAFIGO10 at checkout when you shop on their website. Applicable storewide except for sales items and those under The Do Good Project category.
3. Breeze Cup by Breeze For You (RM66)
Don’t let that time of the month stop you from having fun during your beach getaway. Carry along this period cup by Breeze For You that comes in two different sizes. Made of 100% medical grade and FDA approved silicone, your worries about unwanted leaks are a thing of the past.
4. Hand sanitiser by klean+ (RM12.90)
COVID-19 is here to stay, but that doesn’t mean we should get complacent, so be sure to sanitise your hands! Refillable, reusable, and ultra-slim, this hand sanitiser is the perfect travel companion. There’s even a fragrance-free option for those with ultra-sensitive skin.
5. Squeaky Clean Double Cleansing Pads by Skinfuel (RM60)
Don’t neglect your skin during your time away, and pack this double cleansing pad for you to clean off any impurities on the go or even before you start your skincare routine.
6. Moisturising Lip Balm by Lips Carpenter (RM20)
Keep your lips crack and dry-free with this moisturising lip balm from Lips Carpenter. Made of good ingredients like coconut oil, mango butter, cocoa butter, and beeswax, your lips will look and feel healthier than ever before.
7. Tampons from Bobble
If you’re still not keen on using a period cup but need some serious pool or beach time, bring along a box (or two) of these organic tampons from Bobble. Even if Aunt Flow is in town, you can swim in peace with their regular and supersize options. Did we mention that these tampons are biodegradable?
8. The Travel Series by yue candle (RM24.90)
After a long day of basking in the sun and exploring, it’s time to wind down in your hotel room. What better way to set the mood than by lighting scented candles? Set the tone with yue candle’s travel series – buy them individually or in a bundle. You can also find them on Shopee.
