I was, almost irrationally, excited to achieve a exclusive frequent flier status this past year. Those little perks, upgrades and VIP treatment are just enough to transform a flying experience. So, needless to say, I am no stranger to airplanes. And you’ll be surprised to hear, unlike most beauty junkies, I do not check luggage if at all possible. Fretting over its safe arrival is just too much to take. And maybe a little control freak problem going on there too.
So, I like to consider myself an expert on how to pack TSA-friendly cosmetics. The champion of this endeavor is wipes. These guys don’t require any of that precious space in that plastic baggie. So, why not throw in a couple varieties? Along with Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes, these are my favorites.
Lumene Sensitive Touch Cleansing Wipes are the value performer. At the same time, they are gentle on my sensitive skin. I like using these for workhorse eye makeup removal. Even though they are gentle, they can easily stand up to a heavily dressed up eye. The wipes are alcohol-free, colorant-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free and silicone-free. The smaller packs of 10 wipes for $2.99 are great for your purse and you can find them at CVS.
Korres Milk Proteins Cleansing & Make Up Removing Wipes are also super gentle but a little more of a splurge – $12 for 25 wipes at Sephora. But these guys are performers. I get that fully cleansed feel after I use these, just as if I had used my favorite foaming cleanser. The milk proteins help soften the skin with supple, refreshed results. These milk proteins contain amino acids that actually nourish, rather than strip, the skin.
Hope these will come in handy for you on your upcoming (and hopefully beach getaway) travels! Bon Voyage.
