Travel Beauty :: {Holiday Edition}

holiday travel beauty ideasBeauty products make fantastic holiday gifts, not to mention their small size is ultra travel-friendly for those of you flying home or holidaying for the season. Here are some of my favorite beauty products that make great gifts and stocking stuffers, and easily fit into your chic little suitcase!

Smith’s Rosebud Salve {$6} I was thrilled to see my favorite lip balm now comes in a tube (I’m not a fan of dipping my finger into product). The formula is ultra moisturizing, non-sticky and leaves the prettiest natural-looking glossy finish. I think this is one of the very best lip balms out there.

Bond No. 9 New York Perfumista’s Box {$260, Saks Stores &} Bond fragrances are incredible---each scent is so unique, lasts all day and comes in the coolest bottle. My absolute favorite is DNA For Her (which I wore on my wedding day). This set is such a fun way to try, mix and match their signature scents, and I love how the set is wrapped up like candy.

Shaffali Skin Rituals Body Scrub {$32,} I love body scrubs and have tried tons of them. I can honestly say that nothing compares to this delicious body scrub. With ingredients like Indonesian Mango, French Lavender, Turmeric, Papaya, Pineapple, Sandalwood and Almonds, this scrub doesn’t only smell heavenly, but really softens skin. Shaffali products are paraben- and chemical-free and are inspired by Ayurveda aromatherapy and Shaffali’s Indian heritage.

Alterna Professional Haircare Glitterati Shimmer Spray {$20,} Everyone needs some sparkle (and Caviar) during the holidays and this gorgeous gold-tinted shimmering hair spray uses real diamond dust to give hair a stunning glow. With light hold and subtle shimmer, this spray is the perfect finishing touch to any holiday hairstyle.

Dior Vernis Limited-Edition Nail Color in Czarina Gold {$21, Bloomingdales} Continuing with the sparkle theme, this totally gorgeous nail polish by Dior mixes black and gold, and is the perfect holiday nail color. It’s slightly vamp-ish and very sparkly.

DuWop Venom Gloss Candy Box {$25,} This adorable set of plumping lip glosses would make any girl happy. Using a natural blend of cinnamon, wintergreen and ginger to plump the lips, hydrating oils keep lips soft and smooth and natural-looking colors like sheer pink and nude are the perfect compliment to smokey eyes. This is the perfect lip set for the holidays.

Wishing you a beauty-ful holiday!
