Luxury travelers want the finest tools when it comes to their beauty routine. Filling a suitcase with dozens of creams and potions can take up unnecessary space that could be set aside for another pair of Jimmy Choos. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a simple beauty plan that you can trust? Something you can grab and go. This luxury glamour on the go round-up is ideal for the luxury beach traveler or the business executive on the run. I had the opportunity to review the below products and enjoyed them all.
Rowenta Beauty’s Versa Style™ Styling Iron -$200, Bloomingdales
Hair care can be difficult when you have to lug a variety of apparatuses that help to suit your mood for curls vs. straightening and the like. The Rowenta Versa Style Iron was by far my favorite piece in this beauty travel kit. It is five salon tools in one – a flat iron, roller set, and three curling irons. They say the magic is in what they call ProCurling™ technology. I have been using this every chance I get. When I travel, I miss my hot rollers, but no more, this salon quality tool is amazing. My hair held the curl longer than my other curling irons, and I didn’t have the static that I sometimes get with my hot rollers. Ladies, you are going to love, love, love this product!
Amarte Daily ExfoliPowder -$35, AmarteSkinCare.com
Let’s talk about caring for your skin and the Amarte Daily ExfoliPowder. The first thing I noticed was the scent, it was very light. I’m extremely allergic to perfumes, so I have to be extra careful when testing new cosmetics and had no issues with this product. My skin was instantly soft and smooth after the first application. I rotate my skincare routine, so it was a nice addition to what I’m already doing, and I used it for a week, and feel it would treat me well on a trip. My next excursion is in a few days and it will be coming with me.
Amarte Ultra Veil® $45, AmarteSkinCare.com
Next, I tried the Amarte Ultra Veil light sunscreen fluid and it is right up my alley. My alabaster skin doesn’t play well with the Sun, so sunscreen is a must in my beauty wardrobe. This was very light, unlike most sunblocks which can sometimes feel like a layer of mashed potatoes on your skin as you move up the SPF ladder. This is a SPF 50+ and there was no greasy residue. It soaked into my skin in seconds, leaving me to second-guess myself and wonder if I had used it at all. Ingredients include Ginkgo Biloba nut extract and caviar. It’s waterproof for up to 40 minutes, and overall absolutely luxurious!Repechage Algo Mist® Hydrating Seaweed Facial Spray -$33.50, Repechage.com
The Repechage Algo Mist® Hydrating Seaweed Facial Spray was a nice treat. Personally, I’m not a misting type, but I did enjoy the refreshment for my face when I felt I needed a pick-me-up. It fits nicely into any small handbag, so you can take it with you by day or evening. Indulge your face or décolletage with a spritz or two, when you need a little boost.
jane iredale Facial Blotting Papers -$11, shop.janeiredale.com
When you’re not misting, you’re blotting and the jane iredale Facial Blotting Papers worked much better than a tissue or any cotton cosmetic pad. They are made from organic flax seed, which I liked. It removes the shine without disturbing your make-up. Compact enough to fit in a wallet or clutch.
