During the holiday season, it’s likely to be a mad rush for planes, trains, and automobiles. But despite all the running around, most women want to maintain their glamour to the best extent possible; travel kits that go the extra mile (no pun intended) make complete sense. Below are a few favorites because they are effective, creative, and offer great value.
This trio of beauty products is an ideal way to rev up your skincare routine. It contains a gentle Face Cleanser— good enough to use on sensitive skin because it contains glycerin; Facial Radiance Pads, which contain lactic and glycolic acids to help with exfoliation; and Ultra Repair Cream, which is extremely hydrating and calming at the same time—great for redness relief.
This Molton Brown limited edition shower gel set gives you a bit of everywhere in a box: each of the five shower gels captures a sense of place, from the Recharging Black Pepper Bodywash, Relaxing Yuan Zhi, Vitalising Vitamin AB+C, Energizing Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod, and Warming Eucalyptus. This is a perfect set for the perpetual traveler.
Score a travel size of Offects Daily Hydrating Cleanser, Offects Exfoliating Polish, and Daily Power Defense to keep your jet lagged skin soft and supple even on long haul flights. The plan is Cleanse, Activate and Stimulate – three steps. These essentials come in TSA-friendly sizes with the signature royal blue and silver packaging – at a special price of $85 (regularly $150).
Part of the famous June Jacobs Spa Collection, the new Body Balm Travel Kit is a TSA-friendly size collection of the line’s most loved body balms. They all contain shea butter, squalane, sunflower, jojoba and sesame oils in addition to soy and rice extracts to help retain moisture and plump the skin. You’ll get one each of the Citrus, Papaya, Cranberry, Green Tea and Cucumber, and Vanilla versions.
We’re huge fans of Arcona because of its effectiveness, gentle formulation, and quality ingredients. This is a must-have for those with dry skin—especially if you’re on the go (plane rides make for extremely parched skin). The travel kit includes Kiwi Cream Bar, Gentle Solution, Golden Grain Gommage, Peptide Hydrating Complex, and Desert Mist, all in a travel bag.
Here’s one for the guy in your life. This travel kit features the “4 Elements of the Perfect Shave,” which are also great for every day use. They prevent ingrown hairs, razor burn, tough beards, and is also ideal for sensitive skin. The kit contains Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream Pump, Genuine Badger Shaving Brush, and After-Shave Balm.
