For me, the best part of summer is always the travelling. Any chance to escape work and try a new adventure -- and wardrobe -- has me immediately packing up my suitcase. (Want to be the hottest one on your vacay? Click here.) The only part I hate: The plastic baggie rule AKA no liquids over 3 OZ and everything in one Ziploc. If you're a beauty fiend like me, this is definitely a problem.
To avoid future airport meltdowns, I've started planning my plane products early. What I found is a wide variety of items that are not only baggie-friendly, but also multi-purpose and easy to pack. Check them out now:
Juice Beauty Irresistible Glow Facial Highlighter
A long day of traveling can make skin look dull and drained. For a quick pick-me-up, try Juice Beauty's Irresistible Glow all-over facial highlighter on your cheekbones, nose and chin. You'll go from gargoyle to glowing in minutes.
Travalo Perfume Dispenser
I like the idea of having perfume handily in my purse, but roll-on perfumes always seem a little too fragile for the airport. Travalo's Refillable Perfume Atomizer bottle allows you to easily pop off the spray cap from your favorite scent, attach the refillable metal vial and voila -- You have your own perfume to go. No spills here, folks.
CLEAN Anti-bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream
For those travelers with germs on the brain, never fear, a moisturizing, bacteria-killer is here. CLEAN's Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream will not only prevent you from picking up any unwanted bugs, but also keep your skin hydrated.
Tweezerman Zip File
There's nothing worse than breaking a nail heaving luggage around, especially when your nail file gets buried in your bag. To avoid the hassle during travel, try Tweezerman's zip file. Attached to a handy plastic casting, this file is protected, compact and easy to find.
LA Fresh Makeup Towelettes
Makeup wipes are always a go-to for (lazy) beauty junkies, but LA Fresh's Makeup Towlettes are even better because they come in an individualized packet. Rather than getting weighed down with a hefty pack, slip one or two of these into your bag for a mid-flight refresher.
Paula's Choice Lip & Body Treatment
Since room is limited in your plastic baggie, it's always wise to go for products that give you more bang for your buck. A multi-use balm like Paula's Choice Lip & Body Treatment is the perfect cure for keeping any body part moisturized during long flights.
Fans of Donna Karan's subtly fragranced Cashmere Mist deodorant will be happy to hear that a mini version is available -- perfect for the plane. For less than 10 bucks, you'll smell fresh, even when you feel anything-but.
Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray Travel SizeIf your travel plans have you going right from your flight to a day or night out, dry shampoo is your best friend. Oscar Blandi's Pronto Dry Shampoo is purse-ready in a 1.4 oz travel size, so you can avoid that post-flight flat hair from leaning back in your seat for hours.
While I totally dig these travel goodies, I'm always on the look for new stuff. Which products do YOU love for travel?
