Packing is not always easy. And we all know how a bottle of our favorite shampoo can weigh down luggage. One of my absolute favorites and must-haves for hair and skin (Leonor Greyl Magnolia Oil), for example, is housed in a glass bottle and sometimes not the most practical item to pack when traveling on assignment or getting out of town for a long weekend.
Thankfully, some of the best of the best know this, and offer the necessities in easy, lightweight carry-on sizes that can go almost anywhere. So far this summer, I’ve worked with some goodies and of course love to share, so read on for more and happy travels!
International hair stylist and editorial darling Oribe now offers his glam hair care essentials in a compact and cute travel-size box. All the essentials are stacked neatly inside and in true Oribe fashion with style. Works wonders and is hassle-free.
Liz Earle, the reigning Queen of British skincare offers a fantastic skin treatment, aptly titled “superskin” that should be a staple of the skincare-obsessed. Pure plant oils work to balance, stimulate and sooth skin. It is a cult product and deservedly so. Team Liz Earle gets it and offers the Superskin Concentrate is a cute 10ml rollerball. Perfect to pack or carry-on and a little goes a very long way. I often apply pre-flight or during the flight. It is worth the few crazy looks you may get while applying on a plane…come landing you are guaranteed to be glowing!
Another great brand to come out of Britian, Aromatherpay Associates has a global following due to its placement in some of the best luxury hotels around the world, as well as its beautiful spa space in London. The delicious and soothing oils are bath time staples for many and are all neatly packed in a sturdy box housing all the cult favorites. For bath or shower, it beats lugging a full-sized version of your favorite wash on the road. The line is also in the U.S. now retailing in New York City at New London Pharmacy.
Juara Skincare is one of the coolest no-nonsense skincare brands out there today. Four friends teamed up to bring the timeless rituals and goodness of their native Indonesia into a practical line for cool-hunters. The Stoplight Collection is a favorite of mine for it’s size, sweet smelling, natural scents and effectiveness. Pro tip: Apply the Avocado Banana Moisture Mask to “rough” areas including knees and elbows. Works wonders! Also good for use post-air travel to restore the skin back to normal. Juara Skincare is online and the full collection is on counter at New London Pharmacy in New York City.
