Good Things, Small Packages: Products to Lighten Your Summer Traveling Load
The final month of summer has arrived, and with it comes (for the lucky few, anyway) vacation. And packing. In the spirit of keeping it light and low in terms of maintenance, I’ve sussed out a few products that will do double duty for sun, sea and heat, all conveniently packaged in travel sizes. You’ll be liberated from those useless plastic bottles that clutter your medicine cabinet unused year after year. Besides, going small gives you the chance to break your same old beauty routine.
Dr T’s Supergoop Sunscreen Swipes SPF 30 for face and body. Zinc Oxide provides anti-irritating UV protection, while green tea and vitamin E reduce irritation and redness. Water resistant, 100% fragrance free, paraben free, and good for sensitive skin. The package includes 8 swipes.
For thirsty, dehydrated skin, Weleda Rose Night Cream is the perfect skin quencher. The night-time formula makes this an intense treatment that’s perfect for moisture zapped faces. A little goes a long way. Squeeze a dollop onto your palms and press onto your face. Contains Organic Rosehip seed oil, olive oil, and evening primrose oil.
Who knew the Benefit classic comes in a mini pocket size. This long-lasting glow wand will do double duty as a lip and cheek stain.
Amikole’s Organic cold pressed shea butter in plain and lavender now come in mini sizes. This homemade line is a favorite of small New York City health food stores. It’s excellent for super dry skin, makes a great hair pomade, and is perfect for after sun, wind, and heat. For a smoother and creamier application, warm up in hands before use and wait to absorb.
