Miss Oops Critical Care Kit

We all make beauty blunders, especially if we’re getting dressed in the dark of night to catch a flight at the crack of dawn. If you’ve ever smeared your lipstick, smudged deodorant on your clothing or sported flaky feet while on the road for work or vacation, fear not. Miss Oops has put together a convenient little kit that will solve all those issues. Inside, travel girls will find the Miss Oops Rescue Sponge, which works like Mr. Clean’s magic eraser to safely remove deodorant and powder without water (even on silk!), Miss Oops Pedicure in a Bottle, a formulation to combat rough and dry tootsies with salicylic acid and shea butter, and Miss Oops Pucker Protector, a clear gloss/balm that safeguards your lips throughout the day.

Pur Minerals Pur Perfection Kit

What’s perfect about Pur Minerals is that it’s purely portable. The kit contains the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup which acts as your foundation, concealer, powder and sun protection all in one. Not only does that cut down on what you have to carry along, but the ingredients bind together with shea butter, so you don’t have the inconvenience that you get with loose mineral makeup, which can be a mess when you’re on the go. The kit also includes travel sized editions of the Mineral Glow for a sun kissed effect and the Universal Marble Powder in Pink, which can be applied to lips, cheeks and eyes for a rosy hue. A Chisel Makeup Brush is also part of the package.

Bach Rescue Remedy Spray

Anxiety is not attractive, period – especially for your travel companions or the people who get stuck next to you on the plane. Quell your nervousness with Bach flowers and Rescue Remedy Spray, a homeopathic remedy that’s been used for more than 70 years and counts celeb fans like Cate Blanchett and Jake Gyllenhaal. With ingredients like Impatiens Glandulifera, which purportedly helps you “cope calmly and patiently with irritating problems or people,” you’ll be able to better handle that unexpected layover, or Ornithogalum Umbellatum, which helps you deal with shock or fright you might feel before boarding. Just two spritzes on the tongue from the 0.245 oz. spray bottle will help you transition from stressful to serene.
