Beauty Editor Diane Aiello finds perfectly packable gems for head-to-toe travel bliss.
Sweet and Solid
I can’t resist a cute little beauty package, especially when it holds anything remotely eco-friendly. These tiny perfume solids are no exception. The Soap and Paper Factory hit a homerun with its jojoba and beeswax fragrance body creams and bath soaps. Try the classic fresh orange blossom or the modern yet subtle fig for the perfect summer scents. www.soapandpaperfactory.com.
These days I run for shelter when the temps reach over 100, but it seems that even a little unintended time in the sun damages my locks. So I flipped when I tried Warren Tricomi’s Hair Strengthening System. Containing sea algae, wheat proteins and vitamins, this trio is mini enough to stow away when you travel but big enough to tackle even the toughest hair repair. www.warrentricomi.com.
If, like me, you either a) rarely have time for a mani, or b) are putting your beauty routine on a budget, Lippmann Collection Start Me Up Set features everything you need for a do-it-yourself manicure. From A to Z, it includes the 4-sided Nail Buffer, Cuticle Remover & Oil, 2-Second Nail Primer (an essential prep step), Base Coat, Baby Love Nail Lacquer and the supershiny On a Clear Day Top Coat to leave your nails in pretty perfection.

After years of lugging around makeup kits on location, I hate nothing more than traveling with unnecessary items. So these Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Makeup Removing Wipes are one of my favorite ways to get the gunk off on the go. They leave my face feeling squeaky clean and fresh, not tacky like other wipes can. Sephora.
I have a big thing for vanilla, especially when it’s combined with coconut—how original I know—but, this way no matter where I am, every time I apply this fragrance, it feels like a vacation. Lavanila blends Madagascar vanilla with Tahitian tiare flower into a travel-friendly, purse-friendly and skin-friendly roller ball that you can pop into your carry-on Ziploc. Nordstrom.
