Travel Must-have 1: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Sunscreen

Kiehls Ultra Facial CreamThe first item that belongs in this travel case and should be a staple in everyone’s medicine cabinet back home is Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Sunscreen SPF 30. The Sunscreen formula is new and comes in two sizes, with a smaller size that’s perfect for your carry-on. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft.

Like the original version without sunscreen, it contains:

  • Antarcticine, a glacial glycoprotein sourced in Antarctica that’s known to withstand extreme cold;
  • Squalane, a lipid derived from olives that has emollient characteristics that coat the surface of the skin and help hold onto moisture; and
  • “Fountain Plant” (also known as Ophiopogon Japonicus Root Extract), a plant native to Asia known to resist drought. In skincare, this plant is notable for its ability to help skin maintain its natural moisture reserves.

50 ml $27.50/125 ml $47.50; Available in-store and at Kiehls.com

Travel Must-haves 2 & 3 by Verloop: Pom Pom Charms + Crosshatch Cosmetic Case

Verloop_Layered Pom CharmAnother fun travel item for your getaway is Verloop’s vibrant pom pom charms. These are perfect for identifying your bag off the carousel.

They’re made by hand with remnant materials from past collections using acrylic, cotton and nylon-wool blend. They’re each attached to a key chain clasp, and I love these for your suitcase, backpack or even your beach bag. They measure 8″ long + 1.5″ diameter and are priced at $38 in three different shades.

Verloop_Crosshatch Cosmetic Case_Cobalt BlueAnother item that Verloop creates that can hold your cosmetics or currency is the Crosshatch Cosmetic Case. This can also be that cute little evening bag where you stash your hotel key and smart phone as you go out and explore.

The exterior is made out of Verloop’s signature crosshatch knit fabric, and the interior is nylon. It’s available in three different colors: cobalt, poppy and black.

$38, online at Verloop online.
