Tis the season for traveling! Whether you’re sailing away on a week-long cruise, heading to a romantic getaway or taking a long weekend to enjoy a little R&R, you have to get there somehow. For many of us, this means a car ride, sometimes a long one. I love road trips. If you are in good company, have some yummy snacks and jamming tunes, it can be a blast getting from point A to point B.
Despite the long hours in a car and my frumpy travel wear (I shall call it comfy chic), I want to look fabulous, like I magically teleported to my destination. To keep a refreshed and travel savvy look, I keep a few items in the car for pit stops and touch-ups.
A powder compact is a must-have for your purse, and it is a great addition to the car! The travel sized 4-in-1 is perfect for a glove compartment or center console. If you want to reduce shine, cover a blemish or get overall coverage in a jiffy, this pressed powder is a life saver. The retractable chisel brush is also helpful on-the-go.
Air conditioning and other drying elements in the car can cause lips to crack and feel chapped, which interferes with belting your favorite songs on the radio. Mineral Lip Revival is the perfect remedy. I absolutely hate it when I leave a lip balm stick in the car, and it melts into a mess in the cap. Since this is a creamier formula in a jar, you won’t have that problem.
This hydrating mist is like a mystical spray that makes you look and feel great. Containing over 70 essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids, Fulvic Mineral Mist infuses your skin with vital moisture and the active ingredient fulvic acid to help soothe and refresh your face, hair and body. It’s a great way to freshen your face, set makeup, lotion-up your legs and tame stray hairs. It also feels soothing and smells clean and sweet, with just a hint of citrus. I always keep a bottle in my car. I can’t live without it.
