Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush-On SPF 50
We’ve raved about Colorescience’s brush-on sunscreen before, a godsend for on-the-go sunscreen touchups. This magic wand of SPF 50 is perfect for reapplications at the beach or in the airplane cabin. (Don’t skimp in the sky—the sunbeams above the cloud banks are extra harsh and damaging.) And hey, if this is the thing that’s keeping Drew Barrymore looking like she’s still a Charlie’s Angel, it’s worth adding to your cart.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O
Makeup artists often refer to Bioderma’s Sensibio by shorthand as “the one with the pink cap.” It’s the micellar water that started the craze, and back in the day, beauty influencers and savvy beauty-loving tourists would lug it over from France by the suitcase. Now, thankfully, it’s widely available in the U.S. and on Dermstore’s site. Their sale is the perfect time to nab the 3.34-ounce TSA-friendly baby bottle. Double-cleanse, anyone?
Paula’s Choice C15 Super Booster
Founder Paula Begoun is all about putting science first (with the citations to prove it) so you know her stuff is legit. And while we’re mad for her whole line—the BHA exfoliant has its own cult following—we’re partial to the vitamin C brightness booster. Just a few drops in the morning keeps free radicals at bay and fades pigmentation. The 0.67-ounce size means it’s travel-ready, too—thanks, Paula!
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Sheer Mineral Sun Spray SPF 50
This sunscreen is a true SPF unicorn: It’s mineral-based, mega-stuffed with antioxidants, and free of the drying alcohol found in other spray formulas. The spritz bottle means reapplication is quick and painless, even on the most sunscreen-phobic. If you’re the carry-on-only type, just decant this into a smaller spray bottle. (Be sure it’s opaque to protect the ingredients.)
Sunday Riley Good Genes
If you’re seeing Lactic Acid everywhere, you can credit Sunday Riley’s Good Genes. This is the all-star ingredient of their best-selling treatment, which other brands have rushed to imitate. The exfoliation is gentle (no lobster-red peels here), and it’s just powerful enough to ditch the dead skin cells before a vacation selfie.
CosRx Pimple Patches
The stress of red-eye flights, jet lag, changes in diet—all of it can cause your skin to freak out exactly when you want to snap dozens of #vacaylife photos. Plan ahead for that inevitable pimple and pack these clever little patches. These transparent dots can tamp down any inflammation and bring things back to a rosy normal. It's like a cortisone shot in a patch. And unlike a tube of benzoyl peroxide, they won’t stain your cute vacation outfits.
Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk
How did we ever travel (or live) before dry shampoo? A bottle is basically fresh hair at the ready—essential when you’ve been flattened by a layover or a lengthy transit. Klorane is a sworn favorite of beauty vloggers, and this wholesome formula made with an oat-milk base delivers fluffy, fresh hair with none of the strong perfumes of other brands. Bonus: This 3.2-ounce bottle is TSA-ready.
Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Sheet Mask
Sheet masks are the ideal skin care travel companion. A single, easy-to-pack sheet combats all your travel skin woes in one simple application—whether you're in an airplane seat or a hotel bathroom. Our pick? Klairs Midnight Blue Calming sheet mask. It's infused with bamboo charcoal and willow bark extract to calm inflammation and hydrate skin. It's cooling, moisturizing, and made by a Korean skin care company that basically re-invented the skincare scene. Taking a sheet mask selfie is optional, but highly encouraged.
