Editors’ Picks: Brilliant Beauty Finds For Summer Travel
Josie Maran Argan Oil ($14, sephora.com)
“My medicine cabinet at home is so full of beauty products, it barely closes. But when I travel I refuse to check a bag, so I slash my routine to as few bottles as possible. This multitasking argan oil works as a face and body moisturizer, eye makeup remover, cuticle softener and hair tamer. That’s, like, half my regimen right there.” — Wendy Rodewald, Senior Editor
101 1-Minute Makeovers To Change Your Look In An Instant
La Fresh Eco-Beauty Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover Pads ($9.99 for 20, lafreshgroup.com)
“The mani/pedi places in most destinations don’t stack up to the cheap, abundant nail salons we have in NYC, but I can’t tolerate chipped polish even on vacation. These portable remover wipes are easy to stash in a suitcase, and they smell like oranges (not chemicals), too.” — W.R.
How To Tell If Your Nail Salon Is Clean And Professional
Sephora Collection Carry On Airless Travel Set ($28, sephora.com)
“While many drugstores carry travel-size bottles for your liquid beauty products, I can’t help but notice how tacky and cheap they look. This Sephora set is sleek and allows me to carry my favorite skin care products in airless pumps.” — Megan Segura, Associate Editor
Be a Better Packer: These Multitasking Products Save Room In Your Suitcase
Jouer Mini Luminizing Moisture Tint ($20 for pack of 4, jouercosmetics.com)
“I can safely say there is no product more adorable than this tiny tube of tinted moisturizer. Not only does it give me coverage plus SPF protection, but I don’t have to worry about checking the the bottle’s ounce count to make sure it’s TSA-friendly.” — M.S.
7 New Makeup Techniques To Try
Sarna Anti-Itch Lotion ($10.79, walgreens.com)
“This lotion seriously is a summer lifesaver. Whether I’m going to the beach or exploring a new city, I spend hours outside…and burn easily. It cools as well as aloe, but does a better job soaking into skin. Plus, it hydrates dry skin and relieves itching from insect bites.” — Shannon Farrell, Editorial Assistant
How To Prevent Razor Burn
Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System ($119, clarisonic.com)
“The best part about makeup isn’t only putting it on, but also taking it off. After a long day of traveling I look forward to giving my skin a deep cleanse. The Clarisonic leaves my complexion refreshed. — Jamie Lynch, Junior Team Member
Do At-Home Beauty Devices Really Work?
Lush Grease Lightning ($13.95, lushusa.com)
“My skin tends to break out whenever I take a long trip. This tea tree gel can be used as a spot treatment or all over the face to heal and prevent breakouts. The bottle is also small enough to make it through airport security, which is always a plus.” — J.L.
Makeup That Covers AND Heals Breakouts
Boscia Blotting Linens ($10, sephora.com)
“These are a travel must through the sweaty summer months. With most blotting wipes, it takes two or three sheets to fully blot the face clean. The Boscia wipes are large and thick enough to fully clean your face in just one.” — Emily Rekstis, Junior Team Member
Foundation That Lets Your Skin Breathe
Jane Iredale Powder Me SPF ($45.50, janeiredale.com)
“This powdered sunscreen provides not only SPF but also a light layer of color coverage. It’s perfect for summer travel thanks to its small size and convenient packaging, which has a sponge applicator built in.” — E.R.
