Since every celebrity Gaby, Gail and Gwyneth has thrown their favorite “must have” goops, cremes and elixir lists into the ring – I thought I might as well do the same, and share my tried and true faves! None of the ones that made it on my list are new, but they’re all the products I’ve come to love, trust and re-order again and again over the years. And the best part? They are all available in travel size containers so they can earn quite the frequent flyer miles!

Specifically handy when, after a long flight, your dull, dry skin desperately needs a Hail Mary! Love it for restoring a healthy glow by morning. I only use it a of couple nights a week, and helps to keep my skin more firm, even and glowing.
This has been my go to face cream for years; I’ve tried everything and keep coming back, because for me, nothing beats it! It’s a small company out of Colorado that uses fantastic ingredients and has never sold out to the big skin care conglomerates that sometimes change the formula’s for cheaper recipes.
It’s a deep penetrating, skin treatment that absorbs without greasiness and almost no surface moisture. Antioxidant formula encourages cellular repair and immediately improves skin tone.
This is my must have during any flight! Reduces puffiness from that salty plane food! Rich antioxidant infusion, but still light weight and non greasy. Combats fine lines and banishes dryness and crepiness.
I finally abandoned the high maintenance lash extension route and then found myself practically bald with just a few short broken lashes. Boo! I’ve tried a lot of lash growing serums and this is by far my favorite! It takes a few weeks to see results, so start the month before your trip so that you look great at the beach or pool, with just a little water proof mascara!
I’ve always had a hard time with facial sunscreens because they tend to be oily and cause some nasty break outs- Not this one! I love it because it’s a fantastic day anti-aging day cream, and non greasy sunscreen. Also non-comedogenic and free of color additives and fragrance. This company makes great products across the board. May not look like a travel size container, but it’s only 1.9oz, so you’ll win if they take you on at security!
This is a great, highly potent preventative Vit. C serum, that boots college and elastin levels and shields cells from environmental attacks and sun damage. Really love this for my neck as well, it immediately up and plumps the skin. Best for night time. Perfect after getting a bit more sun than you bargained for!
A MUST have for traveling to a humid climate! If you’re an oil producer on par with EXXON like I am, this will be your savior. It absorbs excess oils, cuts shine and acts as the perfect foundation base. Reduces the need for face powders, so I get less cakey throughout the day.
