Titan 360º Four Diamond Edition Beauty Case
This edition of the Titan’s Beauty Case features a 100 percent virgin polycarbonate exterior that promises to keep your luggage from looking like it’s been around the block. The shell has a diamond texture that makes it almost completely scratchproof and comes in four colors – red, ocean blue, black and champagne. Inside, there are plenty of zippered compartments and elastic bands to keep products secure, and we appreciate the strap on the outside that allows the whole case to slide over the handle of your wheeled luggage for easy transporting. According to http://www.titanluggageusa.com, MSRP is $400, but we found the case on http://www.luggagepros.com for almost half that – $221 (and with free shipping to boot).
Bring a bit of the beach with you wherever you’re going this season with Gabriel Organics. Inspired by the ocean, products include sea minerals and botanical extracts that are all non-allergenic. Toss the Marine Lip Treatment ($19.60) into your bag to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles with sea fennel and trace minerals, and help heal super dry, chapped or sunburned lips with vitamins A, C and E and sweet orange flower oil. (Just keep it out of the sun and high temperatures.) Also great for travel is the Sea Fennel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover ($19.95), which contains sea fennel, chamomile and eyebright to soothe and relieve the appearance of puffy, red, travel-weary eyes. Just plan to pour a bit into a travel sized container, as the full-size bottle might not make it through TSA. Find Gabriel Organics at Whole Foods or online at http://www.gabrielcosmeticsinc.com.
Sometimes when you’re on the move, things just stop moving – and there’s nothing worse than being bloated and constipated while on vacation. Still, it’s hard to tote along powders or pills that require water and sometimes messy mixing. Help keep things on track with FiberAdvance Gummies, which look and taste just like real candy gummies. They’re easy to pop into a small plastic bag and can be eaten without any water, perfect for on-the-go. They also contain a special kind of fiber that helps improve the rate of beneficial bacteria that aid in digestion. When you’re not sure what kind of cuisine you might encounter in some far-flung locale, you can use all the help you can get. Pick up your bottle at Wal-Mart for $9.95, or check out http://www.santacruznutritionals.com.
