CLARISONIC Mia2™ Skin Cleansing System
Being in planes, trains, and automobiles makes your skin get pretty dirty and pores clogged so I make sure to carry the best invention in at home skincare with me so that my traveling doesn’t affect my skin.


LAURA MERCIER Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20
Foundation is too heavy for me so this give me the perfect even skin tone with SPF (so necessary!)

My favorite scent in a small carry on so when I have to run from the plane to a meeting I always smell good.

BUTTER LONDON Glitter Scrubbers Textured Remover Wipes
