If you get the weekly newsletter than you already know that Dan and I booked a last minute trip to Munich/Bavaria over Christmas! Since winter weather + flying = extremely dry skin, I’m excited to share a cute little kit I found that is perfect for winter travel.
Why Munich, you ask? We’ve always wanted to explore Germany. And while I was looking up flights, Munich seemed to be more affordable than the rest of the destinations. We decided to stay in Munich over Christmas and visit the famous Christmas Market (aka Christkindlmarkt) and beer halls, take a day trip to the Dachau concentration memorial camp, then skip over to Salzburg to see the Eastern Alps.
Like I said, travel always screws up my skin. Lather is one of my favorite skin care companies that does a great job at noticing and meeting my needs. I’ve mentioned them on my Instagram a few times (here and here) and have been using and loving their products for a couple of years now. I’m not sure why it took me so long to write a post about them!
All Lather products are vegan (except for the lip balm because it has beeswax so it is vegetarian), never tested on animals, and are free of mineral oil, petrolatum, parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, artificial color, artificial flavor, and sweeteners. GOOD STUFF.
The Mile High Skin Saver Kit is a perfect gift for your girlfriend who travels a lot. I always try to stay hydrated by drinking water while traveling, but it is also important to use products that moisturize and replenish your skin, so you don’t show up to your destination looking like a tired raisin. Here’s what is in this cute little kit:
Cucumber and Ginseng Facial Mist: Alcohol-free, and can be used to refresh your face during and after the flight. Cucumber, aloe, algae, and witch hazel extracts help to cleanse, tone and refresh the skin.
Moisture Magnet Gel. This highly concentrated gel is scent-free and oil-free, and helps revitalize stressed or dehydrated skin. The star ingredient is sodium hyaluronate, the salt of hyaluronic acid, a powerful natural humectant, able to bind up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture. It gives an immediate plumping effect, helping to smooth the skin’s texture. I freaking love this stuff.
Hand Therapy. I’m a doofus and forgot to photograph this one! I use it ALL the time especially after washing dishes. It is a rich and therapeutic hand crème that smells like sage. That makes sense because the shea butter formula contains clary sage, cedarwood, fir, lavender and orange peel.
Lip Conditioning Balm. I’ve been using this at night and my lips have never felt softer. The balm has a cocktail of luxurious oils including evening primrose, sweet almond, apricot kernel and avocado. It is unscented so it would be great for both men and women.
Extra Travel Supplies: because its nice to get a little bonus.
- Soft slippers with anti slip grippies
- An eye mask
- Toiletry bag
- Some complimentary wipes to go with the facial mist
You can purchase all of these items on their own if you’re only interested in one in particular. I also highly recommend the Lavender Deodorant – you’ll be smelling yourself all day in the BEST WAY! Check out the other gift kits if you’re in need of a good gift. But for the traveling girl, this is definitely a solid choice!
