Each year as Summer comes to an end and the leaves begin to change, I fight to hang onto the warmer weather as long as I can. Thankfully I live in California where the weather is pretty mild all year long, but still, there’s nothing like the carefree vibes of summertime.
Crabtree & Evelyn sent me three great summer beauty essentials that are perfectly sized to throw in your carry-on bag. These products are so luxurious, smell fantastic, and help you look great from head-to-toe.
Flying on a plane all day can leave your skin looking and feeling extremely dry. These three products are basically perfect for fixing that “plane-dried” skin. They’re also great for after-sun care, and can be used as part of your daily beauty regimen.
Caribbean Island Wild Flowers Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy ($9)
Don’t let summer travel dehydrate your hands. Keep this hand therapy cream in your travel bag to apply to hands for instant moisture and hydration. Infused with macadamia nut oil, shea butter and aloe, this intensive cream nourished skin so it is instantly smoother. Refreshing fruity, floral notes of wild island flowers and night blooming jasmine will keep your mind on island time.
Gardeners Intensive All-Purpose Balms ($10)
Cure dry skin patches and heal scrapes and scratches while traveling, with this botanical-infused, rich, healing balm. Herbaceous and botanical notes of cloverleaf, eucalyptus and rosemary lift the senses, while shea butter and beeswax soothe and moisturize chapped skin.
La Source Hydra Marine Nourishing Oil ($36)
Condition hair, face and body with this one multipurpose, miracle-worker product. Lightweight and non-greasy, this three-in-one dry oil features a replenishing blend of refined oils, antioxidant-rich Green Seaweed extract and Blue Sea Lavender, to leave skin and hair supple and satiny soft. Spray on hair and leave in for a deep conditioning treatment, or work into ends to soften and shine. For silky soft, hydrated skin, spritz onto dampened face and body and massage.
