PASSPORT TO BEAUTY
WILL FLY TO BUY

We'll admit, when we find a beauty product that's just too good and becomes a necessary staple in our skincare regime, we've been tempted to book a flight just to get the product (Or, if we get lucky we'll ask our best friends to bring back a suitcase of it). Even luckier, beauty has worked in our favor as more curated beauty sites continue to be a portal to our passport stamps. Here are four beauty brands and products that we no longer need to fly to buy - and live up the hype! 


1. BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE LOTION P50

 

THE BRAND: A French biological skincare line with over 30 years of experiences in developing some of the effective skincare products in the beauty industry. Using a clinical approach and no frills - this is a brand famed with French women.  

THE PRODUCT: A cult favorite and a potion in a lotion, Lotion P50 is a miracle product. It exfoliates, hydrates and balances the pH of the skin and effectively preps all skin types with long-lasting results.  Who knew that it's not just important to use an exfoliating cleanser, but also an exfoliating toner?!

THE PRODUCT: The cushion compact craze has made its way to us.  If you haven't heard of a cushion compact yet, it's about to change your beauty game. The cushion compact is like the next generation of a BB & CC cream: it is a small refillable foundation applied through a sponge that holds the products ingredients together and allows for a consistent application.  HERA's long-lasting cushion compact protects, hydrates & revitalizes your complexion with the right amount of coverage.

4.  SHU UEMURA CLEANSING OIL

THE PRODUCT:  An effortless, yet beyond effective makeup remover that gives you supple, smooth and fresh feeling skin. The secret to Shu Uemera's cleansing oil is protecting the skin's delicate moisture balance while removing makeup and impurities in a single step.  Blending oils, avocados and jojoba, with natural photo ingredients, cleansing oils are formulated to fit every skin type's needs.
