Our Biggest Giveaway Yet: 25 Prizes, 25 Winners!

HPL Giveaway- Grand Prize

OH MY GOODNESS. I have been biting my tongue for several weeks now trying not to spill the beans.

We’re throwing our biggest giveaway yet, and you’re invited to enter for a chance at 1 of 25 prizes!

In case you think your eyes are playing tricks, let me make it clear: We’re giving away 25 prizes! In-sane!

The Theme Behind Our Giveaway

We understand there are dozens of pain points that come along with packing your best. For some women, it’s shoes. For others, it’s beauty products. But one area that we all seem to struggle with is those darn liquids, am I right?

As part of a previous Her Packing List survey, nearly 80% of travelers have had some sort of toiletry item spill or leak while in transit. Nearly 80%! That’s 4 out of 5 people that have opened up their luggage while on the road to discover anything from a half-empty bottle of shampoo in the toiletries bag all the way to an entire spilled bottle of perfume on all their clothing. That’s what we call a major pain point, one made only more dramatic with the carry-on liquid restrictions imposed since 9/11.

Since we’re all about helping you to pack smarter, we decided to create this giveaway around helping you resolve this pain point. Without further adieu, here’s the list of awesome prizes!

The Prizes

5 HPL Ditty Bags

Ok, so this doesn’t help with the liquid issue, but they’re pretty cool, right?! These ditty bags have been produced by the folks at ChicoBag and feature a drawstring closure and the HPL logo on front. They’re great for storing shoes, dirty clothes, your undergarments, and anything else you might need to keep organized when you’re traveling. Size: 12.5″w x 16″h

5 HPL Solid Sunscreen Face Sticks

This jumbo tube of solid sunscreen features SPF 30 protection and is made specifically for the face, nose, ears and lips. These are perfect for days when you’re touring around but are constantly in the sun (whether it’s hot or not!). Size: 0.56 oz

5 HPL Solid Shampoo Bars (3-Packs)

HPL solid shampoo bars, 3-pack

These travel sized solid shampoo bars have been hand-crafted by an Australian artisan soap maker just for Her Packing List. I’ve been using these bars since the beginning of the year and LOVE them; my scalp loves them even more. While there is definitely an adjustment period to using shampoo bars (especially ones that are free of SLS), we’re excited to offer this option to those travelers who are serious about dropping liquids from their list! Each bar: 25g. I get around 15-20 washes per bar.

Ingredients: Extra virgin olive oil, Certified Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, soda lye, water, castor oil, jojoba oil, cocoa butter, Certified Organic Shea Nut Butter, peppermint essential oil, marshmallow extract.

5 “Parisian” Solid Perfume Sticks by Aroamas

Aroamas are produced using slim lip tubes so they are even more convenient to female travelers who can pop it in their purses, pockets or bags.

3 Solid Wanderlust Packs by Aroamas

Her Packing List's 25 Winner Giveaway!

Written by Brooke

I run the show at Her Packing List and love packing ultralight. In fact, I once traveled for 3 entire weeks with just the contents of a well-packed 12L handbag. When I'm not obsessing over luggage weight, I'm planning adventures or just snuggling with my pet rabbit, Sherlock Bunz.
