Tahiti Bound! Travel Necessities: ecotools Recycled Retractable Kabuki Brush

Huts on the water in Bora Bora. (Photo from Tahiti’s tourism site.)

I have a goal: to spend one of my wedding anniversaries in Bora Bora. There’s a Four Seasons that has huts out in the water. Can you imagine??

Of course, thinking about a FABULOUS trip to Tahiti requires thought about what beauty products one would bring. Obviously, you don’t want to take too much, because we’ll be spending the time swimming, snorkeling, and sunning. But I also want to make sure I have the right products, because after all, this is an anniversary trip. :)

We’ll start with a multi-purpose brush that is compact and VERY travel friendly.

I always find it hard to travel with brushes without having them get crushed or damaged. This ecotools Retractable Kabuki brush is perfect!

The brush container is made from recycled aluminum, which is very cool. Ecotools products are cruelty free, and this brush is no exception.

The bristles are incredibly soft and provide a really smooth application. I have used this to apply blush, bronzer, and even to contour with and have been very pleased with how the brush performs.

It’s really easy to close, too, without damaging the bristles in the process. The metal extends over the bristles, the cap gets put on, then the metal part slides back down with the cap inclosing the bristles. Really smart design.

I have washed it once and it held up well, which I expected. Although I am personally new to the ecotools brand, I have heard and read great things about their products for a while now. I will definitely be trying more of their brushes!

You can find ecotools products at most drugstore and discount stores, as well as online. This particular brush is around $8.


What do you think I’ll need next for my (unfortunately) fictional trip to Tahiti? Sunscreen? Blush? Let me know in the comments below!!

  1. I love ecotools! I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to pay $100 for a good blush brush. I use a lot of Sonia Kashuk and ecotools. I actually just got this retractable kabuki last week and I have been loving it for applying my bareMinerals foundation (I tried all of Sonia Kashuks kabuki’s and they kinda sucked!)
