Going Abroad? Beauty Must-Haves


I'm about to leave for my trip to Iceland. I'm very excited, but also plagued with packing anxiety. What do I wear? What shoes do I bring? And, most importantly -- how do I simplify my beauty regimen so it doesn't require its own duffle bag? It's not that I use a lot of product on an everyday basis, but I like having everything at my disposal. You know, just in case. After A LOT of thought and analysis, here's what I've come up with:

♥ Simple Micellar Cleansing Water. I've already declared my love for this stuff, and it's made the cut. It leaves my skin feeling clean and soft and breakout-free. Best of all, after a long day of chasing waterfalls and riding Icelandic horses, I can just wipe my face down with a cotton swab and fall into bed. No water required. Laziness, FTW.

Olay Complete Daily Defense Moisturizing SPF 30. After countless tests and tryouts of different moisturizers, I always come back to this one. I love that it contains SPF without feeling or smelling like it does. PS - I prefer the sensitive skin formula.

♥ Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint. For sheer coverage, you can't beat this watery-thin formula that gives skin a dewy, fresh finish. It's so easy to use, you don't even need a mirror to apply -- just rub it in like a lotion.

And that's it! Oh, one last thing: don't forget your favorite lip balm or lip gloss (duh).
