New travel kits make taking your beauty routine on the road a breeze
With summer nearly here, traveling seems to be on everyone’s to-do list. Unfortunately, many skincare products aren’t exactly jet-set ready—often these TSA-unfriendly sizes make packing a nightmare. But thanks to these new luxe beauty travel kits (that work great off the tarmac too!), you’ll be globetrotting sans the hassle of lugging your countertop’s worth of products in a Ziploc bag.
Recently launched by Julie Macklowe, a New York “It Girl” and socialite who before the age of 30 was managing a multi-million dollar hedge fund, vbeauté is a results-driven, paraben- and gluten-free skincare line harnessing the rejuvenating power of Alpine rose. Her appropriately named It Kit is a customizable skincare system that comes in a sleek, gunmetal-hued, refillable case. Included are an anti-wrinkle protecting serum, gentle foaming cleanser, gentle exfoliator, an everyday moisturizer and a nourishing eye cream. $165
Loved by estheticians, makeup artists and skincare know-it-alls, Le Mieux products are now easy to transport thanks to the new Basic Beauty Set of seven of the brand’s must-haves: cleansing gel, toner, TGF ß Booster Serum, Bio Cell Rejuvenating Cream, Vita C Serum, eye cream and SPF. Packaged in a hard plastic case and perfect for carry-ons, these favorites are now just as mobile as you! $25, call 888-327-8188.
The powerful anti-aging, unisex line from Dr. Stuart Kaplan, a Beverly Hills dermatologist, is now available in travel sizes in the First Class Traveler Set, which includes a two to three week supply of eight of Kaplan MD’s best products. Armed with foam cleanser, toner, SPF, Cellular Rejuvenating Concentrate, Night Replenishment Concentrate, eye cream, moisturizer, Cell Renewing Microfoliant, firming mask and a high-performing lip balm/treatment, your skin will never know you’ve left the comforts of home behind. $250
Don’t forget about your hair! Get a great blow dry away from home with three essential styling products from blow, the New York blow dry bar. The lightweight Beach Blow Texturing Mist (a customer fave that moisturizes hair while creating beautiful beach waves); volumizing, shine-enhancing and protective Blow Up Thickening Mist; and Heat Is One Blow Dry Styling Mist, which detangles and prevents blow-dry damage like breakage and split ends, are thankfully now all air compliant and available in the jetblow travel kit. $18
Make it easy on your man with a travel kit from The Art of Shaving. The Carry-On Kit, Travel Kit and Travel Kit & Razor each holds the smaller sizes of the shop’s signature 4 Elements of a Perfect Shave (pre-shave oil, badger shaving brush, shaving cream and after-shave balm), all available in unscented, lemon, lavender or sandalwood aromas. $50-150
