The holiday travel season is officially upon us so I’ve decided to share some of my favorite travel friendly beauty products in hopes that it will make this holiday travel season a bit less stressful…and germ free.
1. Farmaesthetics Cool Aloe Mist This spritz is ideal for air travel because it is hydrating, refreshing and purifying. The cool aloe mist soothes dry skin and doubles an anti-bacterial, which is important in such an enclosed environment where air is re-circulated. Just spray it around your personal space prior to boarding for a relaxing scent and to ward off those airplane germs. Read more
As someone who cannot survive without yoga, I was beyond excited when I heard about Yuni.
Yuni is the first natural, sustainable, convenient, Yoga-inspired beauty brand. Yuni products are versatile, multi-tasking, time saving and enable yogis to potentially practice more often since having time to shower or the availability of shower facilities may be a deciding factor in whether we decide to work out or practice.
All Yuni products are plant-based, non-toxic, biodegradable and compostable and contain 100% all-natural fragrance. Read more
Believe it or not, a blogger’s makeup bag is not always overflowing with products when we travel. Most of us have a handful of products we are loyal to simply because they get the job done while home or away.
I recently spent some time in Atlantic City and asked fellow bloggers Kelly Augustine from www.KellyAugustine.com and Lyuba from www.WillCookForSmiles.com what their must have beauty products were while traveling.

Whether your next vacation be relaxing on the beach, touring cities in Europe, or just going to your families, you should never forget about your skin. High-end skin care brands rarely put out economy size products, but many of them downsize into fabulous travel sets and starter kits. Not only do these A-list products travel well, but they create an opportunity to sample luxury lines at a lower cost. “Maintaining your skin regime while on vacation is essential to keeping your skin beautiful. Be sure to toss your products into your carry-on, just in case your luggage ever gets lost,” says Dr. David E. Bank, Founder and Director of the Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery.

Traveling has so many benefits: it’s educational, it allows you to experience things you wouldn’t in your home country and it gives you the opportunity to meet people from around the globe. Perhaps best of all, it offers you a different perspective on life and how it’s lived.
However, being on the road, or in the air for that matter, can also take its toll on your mind and body. Waking up at the crack of dawn to catch a flight, driving a few hundred miles, or being forced to spend a night in an airport can leave you feeling tired and in desperate search of some under-eye concealer. Luckily, there are a number of little tricks and tips to keep yourself looking young while you travel.
Here are some suggestions for your next trip: Read more
The first time I fell in love with Paper Face Masks was at Incheon International Airport. As a way to cure airport boredom I started perusing the cosmetics stores and was intrigued by one of the masks. I had no idea what the mask did as everything was in Korean, but I applied it to my face and let it sit there on my flight from Seoul to Dallas. My skin felt really hydrated after I landed…which was a miracle since my skin normally looks dull and dry after a long flight.
Since that mask I haven’t been able to find a paper face mask that I loved, or even liked, until very recently when I tried the Kaunis Facial Masks. Read more
Whenever I’m traveling, one thing I can count on without fail is the appearance of breakouts. My skin tends to get clogged and congested on the plane and by the time I land I can feel the bumps start to emerge. In an effort to be preventative I’ve started to use facial wipes on the plane, but a lot of times these are drying on my face and exacerbates the problem.
I finally came to the conclusion that I needed a cleanser that was both gentle and moisturizing on my skin while still being capable to remove dirt, makeup and any other skin congestant found on a plane. On my last flight I cleansed my face with WEI To Go Real Clean Gelled Oil Cleanser. The cleanser comes in extremely airplane friendly 10ml tubes, is super easy to use and has a very refreshing lemony scent. Read more
Thanks to traveling a lot and living a pretty active lifestyle, I’ve been increasingly gravitating towards clothing and beauty products that have multiple functions. It just makes life that much easier when you’re able to travel lighter, whether it’s across the country or to the yoga studio.
I am currently on the first leg of a month-long trek that includes five cities. Thankfully the day before I departed California, I found a product that is not only multipurpose, but is also TSA approved, gym bag and teeny clutch friendly, humidity proof and looks great on my skin tone. Vincent Longo’s Pearlessence Lip & Cheek Gel Stain is now my best travel and workout buddy. Read more
Meet my brand new best-friend and constant travelling companion, Spa Sonic’s Face and Body Polisher.
I took an immediate liking to this device and absolutely refuse to leave home for more than a day without it, after all what’s not to love since it beautifies from head to toe? The seven piece professional kit includes, 1 Polishing unit, 2 Facial Brushes, 1 Body Brush, 1 Facial Buffer, 1 Pumice Stone, and a battery four pack and they all do an awesome job.
The facial brush feels really gentle on my skin and I especially love the size of the brush because it cleanses and exfoliates my face without getting any excess of cleanser and water on my hair. The body brush is also amazing. Like the facial brush, it’s not harsh or irritating, but really gentle and also exfoliates and cleanses perfectly. Read more
The beauty industry has definitely contributed in large part to making traveling less stressful.Â Yes we still have to deal with lines, delays and ridiculous baggage fees, but thanks to the beauty industry, as soon as we board we canÂ treat ourselves toÂ an in-plane spa session that will remove the memory of any stressÂ prior to boarding.Â One of the fewÂ products that I have noticed absent from the vast array of greatÂ airline travel-friendly products is perfume.Â Yes, there are perfumes available in sample sizes that you can pretend you’re going to buy later, but you actually won’t…you just want it because it’s in an easy to travel size (it’s OK, I do it and know of a few others that are guilty as well!)Â But what is a girl to do? Sometimes I would like to freshen up my fragrance on the plane, but it’s usually not handy because it’s in my checked luggage…it being in a large, heavy glass bottle and all.Â Â I knew it would only be a matter of time before some beauty industry genius came up with a solution and of course someone did, the geniuses at Travalo.
Travalo is a refillable perfume atomizer that is ridiculously user friendly and foolproof.Â It allows you to rapidly transfer your favorite perfumes from their full sized bottles in to a convenient travel size container (about 3 inches longÂ and weighs .5 oz).Â All you have to do is to remove the spray top from your perfume bottle and insert the pump stick of the perfume bottle into the bottom of the Travalo container, then press down repeatedly until the Travalo container is filled, it’s really that simple.
The Travalo container even has a clear window so that you are able to gauge the level of perfume it contains so you know when it’s ready to be refilled.Â The container is very lightweight, shatter proof and environmentally friendly, I also love that it fits intoÂ the teeniestÂ evening clutch.Â Yes Travalo is absolutely genius, but now there is absolutely no reason to smell anything but fantastic…no matter where you might find yourself.
