A Dozen Ideas for Effortless Summer Travel

You can rely on the hospitality items of the hotel where you stay for some items,

But that obviously won’t work for everything. The good news is that Kiehl’s has travel size Amino Acid, Argan, Olive Fruit Oil&Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoos and Conditioners in 2.5 oz bottles for $7.00. They also offer 2.5 oz sizes of Nurturing Body Washing Cream at $8.00 and Crème de Corps body moisturizer at $11.00.

To cleanse, tone and moisturize, you can stay right at the Kiehl’s counter and choose from “3 Steps to Ultra Moisture” or “Ultra Facial Oil Free Set” each $26.00. The sizes are: Cleanser 1 oz., Toner 1.4 oz., and Moisturizer 1.7 oz. Don’t forget your eye cream and sunscreen!

Now it is time to move to Lancôme for Bienfait Multi-Vital Eye SPF 28 Sunscreen 1.7 $35.00 and Bienfait UV SPF 50+ Super Fluid Facial Sunscreen. Before we leave Lancôme, we will pick up a Définicils Waterproof Mascara and then it’s on to Trish McEvoy to pick up the Effortless Beauty Ready to Wear Makeup Planner Collection Classic. It includes 17 pieces: Eye Shadow Base, 3 Eye Shadows & Definer, Blush, Translucent Powder, Gel Eye Liner Pencil, Shades 2 & 3.5 Portable Foundation in a refillable Double Decker Compact, Application sponge, Lip Liner, Flawless Lip Color, Mini Mistake Proof Brush. $145 (and by the way, the only things that have to go through security in the 1 qt. bag are the shadow base and lip gloss) everything else is a solid.

When you return from a day at the beach and shower for the evening out, it is the perfect time to use the Kate Sommerville 360 degree Tanning Towelettes for quick and even application and a natural looking glow in 2-4 hours. While your tan is coming up, reach into your bag for a Chanel Ultra Correction Total Eye Revitalizer Eye Patch. You will find firmness – anti wrinkle – anti-fatigue coming to the rescue! 10 patches in a package for $125.

Your travel bag is never packed without fragrance, and nothing says its summer like Jo Malone, Lime Basil Mandarin. It is reminiscent of a trip to the Caribbean, where the scent of limes is in the air and the 1 oz. “airplane size” fits it that 1 Qt. bag!

Last, but not least, when it is time for beg, we go to Estee Lauder for “Take it Away” Long wear Makeup Remover Towelettes. Portable pre-moistened towelettes in a reseal able package. 45 sheets for $18.00.

Best of all, you can share most of these products with your significant other!
