This cult product is made from a formula developed by Miss Arden herself, and a legacy of 90 years. Made using petroleum (intensive moisturiser), Vitamin E (protects against free radical damage), and salicylic acid (exfoliates and soothes skin), Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant boasts of not only effects that last for eight hours but also eight different uses. Use it to hydrate your face, hands, feet, and lips. It also works as a highlighter. Use it on cheeks, collar bones, shoulders, legs, and bow of the lips. Not forgetting how hair define you, it also helps in grooming and shaping brows as well as smoothen stray, frizzy hair. And lastly, proving to be the perfect travel companion, it also fights windburns on skin that you may encounter when out and about.

Made with all-natural ingredients, the Rose Jasmine Face Cleanser by Kama Ayurveda does everything you want from a face wash. It cleanses leaving your face hydrated, removes light makeup, and smells heavenly. Aloe Vera, vetiver, jojoba oil, and black cumin seeds come together to make this clear looking face wash. What’s best is that the rose and jasmine oils in it mean you can do without a toner, which is a boon when travelling—saving both time and space.

The easiest way to apply sunscreen on the go? Spray it on. That’s what this Supergoop! Sunscreen Mist does for you. With 35 percent less alcohol than other sprays, it leaves your skin more hydrated, and works for 60 to 80 minutes at a stretch. What we love is that regardless of the weather, a spray mist ensures that it doesn’t put you on any end of the spectrum—too oily or too dry.

L’Oreal Paris Ideal Skin Make Up Removing Towelettes

Makeup wipes that actually remove all that face paint and don’t leave it dry as a desert? Yes, please! These wipes from L’Oreal are your best friend when it comes to removing makeup on the road. No hassle of carrying pads and remover separately nor any alcohol-doused pre-prepared pads. Ideally, you should always follow up wipes with a mild cleanser, however, even if you don’t get the time, these will keep you feeling fresh till the time you find a basin.

It’s 2020, you can’t possibly be OK with using the hotel shower gel and soaps. With the harsh changes the skin goes through when travelling, which happens regardless of where you go, we suggest going with this sulphate-free body wash. Like everything from Forest Essentials, the room fills with an intoxicating scent as soon as you take off the cap. The organic honey works to replenish skin moisture and vanilla neutralizes free radicals. The body wash leaves your skin supple and nourished.

Flyways are a part and parcel of the travel life. But, they can be as transient as you in the new destination. Get rid of that frizzy mane with John Frieda Frizz Ease Serum series. Four different options based on the thickness, volume, and coarseness of your hair (pick a specific serum perfect for your hair type). This means avoid getting weighed down by a heavy serum or re-applying because it was too light for you.
