Travel Beauty Top Product Picks from B. Kamins, Elemis, Bliss & Juvena

B. Kamins Renewal Serum: The perfect serum for someone overwhelmed by the vast selection and textures of serums. This serum has a lotion-like texture, so it’s more moisturizing than gel-based formulas and is easy to apply – just two pumps is enough for your entire face and neck. It effectively deals with all skin concerns: helps restore clarity, radiance and suppleness to damaged, wrinkled skin. It reduces blotchiness, refines skin texture and helps increase cell turnover to diminish the visible effects of harsh environmental influences.

B. Kamins BB Cream: This BB gets an A+! This 8-in-1 multi-tasking beauty balm is packed with antioxidants, vitamins and peptides to help firm skin, smooth out wrinkles and combat damage caused by sun, stress and aging. The universally flattering shade can be used by all skin types and tones and provides sheer, luminous, natural-looking coverage…not to mention all day hydration. It immediately brightens complexion and evens out skin tone.

Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Mask: These little miracle masks are a must-have for everyone – especially as we enter holiday party season! They brighten, de-puff and de-line the under eye area with 3 forms of glow-inducing oxygenation, antioxidant vitamin C and puff-pummeling cucumber extract. In just 15 minutes flat, they revive and refresh your entire face.

Elemis Pro Intense Eye & Lip Contour Cream: We love this multi-tasking cream. It contains active plant stem cells that work with the skin’s natural function to protect the shape of skin cells and tighten the collagen network. It defends against environmental damage and limits skin degradation by inhibiting the production of harmful enzymes. But the benefits are not only long term, you’ll see immediate results as well: It effectively plumps and firms the lips and the delicate skin around the eye to reveal a more youthful, renewed and remodeled look. This is your #1 weapon to prevent vertical lip lines and lipstick feathering.

Juvena Instant Optimal Look Mask: Whatever “skincident” you are experiencing, this mask is sure to help. The creamy and cooling formula contains a concentrated cocktail of caffeine, soybean oil and Juvena’s innovative Light Shadow Equalizer to immediately soften the appearance of small shadows, lines and wrinkles. You’ll get a radiant, revived look and silky-soft skin IN JUST FIVE MINUTES. This mask is essential for travel and perfect for pre-party prep.

We could go on and on – It is so hard to choose! Other rockstar products worth noting:

From Juvenajuvena-skin-nova-sc-serum

  • Frangipani Monoi Body OilSimply devine and fast absorbing – you can’t go wrong!

Toiletry Bag Packing Tips

toiletry bag packing tips

When you travel with as many expensive toiletries as we do, you learn – rather quickly – which packing strategies work and which leave you with a toiletry travel kit coated in night cream. Here are our roadtested methods for arriving at your destination with your products – and your beauty regimen – fully in tact.

It’s What’s Outside that Counts

First and foremost, choose your toiletry bag wisely. We designed our Travel Beauty Travel Bag to be slightly padded, zipper-enclosed and plastic-lined. The padding protects products from breakage, but if the unfortunate happens, the plastic lining and zipper stops it from getting unfortunate all over your vacation wardrobe!

Dust Off Your Dust Bags

More and more beauty products come in eco-friendly glass bottles every day. And though they be beautiful on our vanity, they are perilous in our carry-ons. Enter the smaller size dust bags you’ve likely amassed…you know, the ones that come with large jewelry pieces (hello, Alexis Bittar bangle) and small leather goods. These are your beauty products’ best friends. Put each glass product in its own bag (the thicker, the better) to protect them from banging against each other and then breaking.

Know Your Products’ M.O.

What spills easily and what does not? For example, there’s an oil we love, but it seeps out of its bottle very easily. We learned (the messy way) that this particular product has to stay home. (We are not fans of transferring containers, especially with oils. Too much gets lost in transportation!) Also, pump bottles – the types you have to press down to lock – are all-around bad travel buddies. The pump almost always opens, and then the darn thing is pumping product out the entire time you’re in transit, unbeknownst to you! As much as possible, go with tubes that have tightly-closing flip tops. We also love powder formulas for travel, like Juvena Pure Lifting Peeling Powder. The less liquids to worry about, the better.

Pack Products that Pack a Triple Punch (Or More)

Most of the products we really love do many different things…and do them all well. A quality multi-purpose oil, like Huile 27 can be used from scalp to soles, and works fabulously wherever you apply it. When thinking of which products multi-task well, don’t forget about those that are unisex! Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes are traditionally a men’s product. But these wipes are so cleansing and refreshing, we love them just as much as our husbands do! Then there’s Vine Minus Ion Water, which is so high tech and multi-talented it could probably fly the plane if need be. It is a great refresher/primer for hair and face, it moisturizes and has antibacterial properties. You can even brush your teeth with it!

Always Pack a Dream Cream

Bring one product you can keep with you (in your purse) and that can go anywhere on you. Heaven Skincare Black Label Vanilla Pod Hand & Nail Cream is made with such high quality organic ingredients you can use it not only on your hands and nails (and arms and legs and feet) but also on your face. Plus, the luscious scent has the aromatherapeutic benefits of being calming, comforting and stress reducing! ‘Cause, you know, travel can be a bit stressful sometimes…

Bon Voyage!

The Best Skin Firming and Moisturizing Products for Summer

best skin firming products

After that humdinger of a winter we just suffered through, the Travel Beauty team feels more than ready to shed some layers. Unfortunately, upon baring some body, we noticed that certain areas were not quite, erm, suitable for public consumption just yet. So just in time for sandal and swimsuit season, we’ve added some exciting new luxury body care products from Heaven SkincareMio Skincare and Alchimie Forever.

Thigh Hopes Courtesy of Mio Skincare

It happens every June: The bathing suit moment of truth. We don our two-piece for the first time in near a year, stand in front of a full length mirror and take stock of all that’s out of whack. After trying not to bawl in our bikini, we grab our favorite body products and get to work.

For those areas we’d like to tighten and tone (upper arms, abdomen, bum and thighs), here are two new products we seriously love:

The dynamic duo of Mio Skincare’s Double Buff dual action enzyme exfoliator and The Activist Firming Body Oil  — both of which can be found in Mio’s Strong is the New Skinny Kit — is the perfect cellulite-pummeling one-two punch. You apply Double Buff on dry skin, which may seem a little odd for a body scrub, but actually makes the scrubbing action that much more effective. You can then rinse it off as soon as you get in the shower. We like to apply The Activist immediately after turning off the shower, while skin is still damp and warm. Once applied, we immediately see a firmer, smoother silhouette. The gel formula is great for summer too: it soaks in quickly, completely and weightlessly, so no heavy feeling on the skin in the hot, hot heat.

Another Natural Skin Firming Oil for Bikini Season

Heaven Skincare Firming & Stretchmark Oil is a luxe and lovely body oil that moisturizes and firms skin while breaking down cellulite and increasing collagen production. It is also chock full of anti-inflammatory, calming and healing ingredients (all organic!) to optimize overall skin health. It gives us gorgeous glowing nourished skin with reduced dimples and improved tone and elasticity. It also smells delicious.

If the summer usually means extra body breakouts for you, this oil is just the thing (we promise)!  This oil is formulated with several purifying organic essential oils such as cypress, juniper and lavender that help release toxins from the skin. Instead of aggravating any body breakouts, this oil is fabulous for clearing blackheads and blemishes. And not just the skin on your body: due to the organic, pure and high quality oils used, you can use this oil to clear blackheads and blemishes on the face as well.

Derriere Double Whammy

Personally, I like to mix either of these oils with a body lotion (Mio Skincare strikes again: The A Cream firming active body cream is our top choice) and knead that concoction into my skin with my knuckles. Yes, my knuckles. Cellulite is a tough mother. Give her a knuckle sandwich! Just be careful on your upper arms if you are pale; get too feisty and you may bruise. True story.

Let Us Give You A Hand With Your Hands And Feet

If only the summer shape-up stopped there! No, in addition to the wiggly bits, we’ve got elbows, knees and feet drier than our favorite Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc. These dry patches are not only unsightly but also make self-tanner application nearly impossible.  We’re in need of a hard-working cream.

Nail Cream from Heaven Skincare

Heaven Skincare’s Black Label Vanilla Pod Hand & Nail Cream has come to our rescue. Dubbed “a mini-manicure in a jar”, this this all-natural, paraben-free hand and nail cream stays (and works) on hands and nails for 4+ hours, even in water, nourishing skin and strengthening nails. It deeply moisturizes while also reducing the amount of oil on hands, making it safer to touch the face without transferring pore-clogging oils. This intensive treatment also exfoliates: It contains the finest grains of sand that work to soften and exfoliate rough elbows, knees, heels, etc. Don’t worry, it doesn’t feel like you dropped the jar while at the beach. The grains of sand are so fine as to be almost imperceptible…but the effects are not! The skin is left deeply moisturized, softened and perfected. As with Heaven’s Cellulite Oil, the high quality organic ingredients used make this cream safe to use on the face. This little tub of wonderful comes with us everywhere.

Dry Skin Balm from Alchimie Forever

As frequent travelers, we downright demand all products we use to multi-task in some way; to be packed in our dopp kit, you better be performing double or triple duty. So it is not lightly that we say Alchimie Forever’s Dry Skin Balm is a skin care overachiever. It replenishes moisture to soften and soothe chapped, irritated skin. The shea butter and jojoba seed oil condition and smooth out skin texture for a silky, comfortable feel. Watercress and vitamin E infuse skin with antioxidants to nourish, hydrate and protect against damaging free radicals, giving skin an overall healthy and youthful look.

Dry Skin Balm goes above and beyond that, though. It also reduces swelling, minimizes brown spots and has anti-aging effects. We use it on any and all rough patches: hands, elbows, knees, and heels. Great as a body moisturizer as well. It is also safe and effective on our kids’ skin to help soothe and heal the non-stop irritations that the summer months seem to bring.

Overnight Beauty Essentials

overnight travel beauty essentials toiletry kit

Even a simple overnight trip can turn disastrous if you suddenly discover you’ve forgotten to pack one of your beauty essentials. We are here to save you from ever suffering this unfortunate fate! Travel Beauty has curated the ultimate collection of overnight beauty essentials in one convenient travel kit. Use this product guide as your packing list and you’re guaranteed to have a gorgeous getaway every time. Hitting the beach? Be sure to check out our beach bag beauty essential guide specifically for the sand and sun!

Overnight Essentials: Shower with Power

Starting your day off with a sub-optimal shower can dampen anyone’s spirits, so a fragrant shower gel and body cream duo is a definite overnight beauty essential. We love Compagnie De Provence travel size shower gels and body milks. They come in a variety of scents, but you can never go wrong with Olive and Lavender Shower Gel and Incense Lavender Body Cream. The petite size makes these products perfect for a quick overnight trip.

Overnight Face Essentials

Sometimes an unfamiliar (and/or uncomfortable) bed can lead to us suffering through a night of broken sleep. But you’d never know it by looking at our faces! How do we keep our skin looking fresh no matter what? By packing our favorite essential face products. We keep skin clean with travel size Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash and follow that with Institut Esthederm E.V.E. Serum Source and Juvena Specialist Skin Nova SC Eye Serum. No overnight travel beauty kit is complete without these. This product trifecta will keep skin smooth and bright, even after a rough or restless night.

An Overnight Essential for Beautiful Hair

You may choose to skip the shampoo on your overnight trip, but your hairstyle will nonetheless need refreshing at some point. Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence is an overnight beauty essential for hair you’ll always find in our travel kit. It protects, conditions, tames, smoothes and adds shine…with just a few sprays. We especially love Daily Damage Defence to protect our hair from those high heat hotel hair dryers.

We’ve kept this overnight essentials travel kit intentionally pared down. Think you need to round your own bag out with a few more products? Shop Travel Beauty’s entire collection of luxury beauty and grooming products now.

Negative Ion Water: Benefits for Beauty

vine care water

Where do I begin? Vine Care Water is negative ion water that was first developed in Japan for NASA to clean the lenses and mirrors on space bound vehicles and satellites. Bacteria cannot live in a pH 12.5 environment, so it was made as a germ-killing cleanser.

Negative ion water is 170 times more absorbent than water, so on its own it provides moisture. Used in conjunction with hair and skin care products, negative ion water works as a driver – so it boosts the effectiveness of products used subsequently.

Negative Ion Water Benefits for Hair Care

The negative charge of the water is attracted to – and bonds to – hair.  It helps strengthen fine hair, making it feel thicker. It boosts the strength of conditioners, treatments or styling aids to amplify the benefits of these products. It can also be mixed with your shampoo or conditioner at a rate of 10%, or can be sprayed onto hair, roots to ends, before leave-in conditioners or styling aids are applied. This is a fabulous tool for thick, curly hair as well; read more here about how to use it.

Negative Ion Water Benefits for Skin Care

Care Water works great as a skin toner or clarifier that also adds moisture (most products that clarify tend to dry the skin). Many of my clients have had success clearing up some forms of acne with Care Water as well. Layered with other products, it boosts the benefits of those products. Here’s an easy experiment to give you an idea of what Care Water does:

  • Put a few drops of oil into water. You will see it separates.
  • Then spray the oil and water with Care Water.
  • You will see it actually reduces the size of the oil drops so that the water and oil mix together.
  • This is the same way Care Water breaks up and clears away oils on the skin.

Negative Ion Water Benefits for Scrapes & Cuts

Sprayed on scrapes or cuts, Care Water cleans the wounds (by killing bacteria) and moisturizes, therefore promoting healing. It’s currently being used in research at burn hospitals in Japan with very positive results.

Negative Ion Water Benefits for Teeth

Care Water also works for brushing your teeth – both cleansing and whitening. Read all about our smile-cleaning secrets here. Don’t swallow it, though! It is not for internal use. The pH is too extreme for that.

Care Water is the ideal multi-tasking travel companion. You can find this cure-all wonder water in travel size here at Travel Beauty.
