This month we asked our very own Jetset Jingles editor, Nicole {pictured above in Dubai's Souk Madinat Jumeirah Market} about her travel beauty faves. Read about her exotic picks below!

TS: You're stranded on a deserted island and get to have one makeup product, one skincare product and one body care product with you---what would those be? Nicole: The one makeup product I can't leave home without is Lancome's Maquicomplet Concealer, which covers absolutely everything and is super creamy so your skin looks naturally smooth. Even on a desert island, I'd want to look that flawless! As far as a skincare product, I'd have to say my Phytomer Rosee Visage Cleansing Toner, which makes me feel so fresh and clean. My favorite everyday body care product is Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Lotion in Vanilla Chamomile---it's soothing for dry skin and has a very light scent.

TS: What is your travel beauty routine when flying? Nicole: I tend to not wear much makeup on flights and stick to a touch of Korres Zea Mays Blush in Peach, MAC Eyeshadow in Arena, Diorshow Mascara and Aveeno Essential Moisture Lip Conditioner with SPF 15. Each of those products are light, natural-looking and don't irritate my skin. I can't board a plane without a travel-sized hand lotion to keep my hands moisturized, and my favorite is L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. I also need a bottle of water, and if it's a long flight, a sleep mask.

TS: When on vacation, what is your skincare and haircare routine? Nicole: I don't deviate from my normal skin and haircare routine, I just bring everything I need in smaller-sized, travel-friendly containers. I feel and look my best when I have everything with me that I usually use. I don't leave home without my Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel, Phytomer Toner, Dermalogica Solar Defense For Sensitive Skin with SPF 30 {for day} and Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream {for night}. I don't always love the brands of haircare that the hotels provide, so I take my Alterna Bamboo Shine On-The-Go Travel Kit.

TS: Any cool beauty purchases that you've discovered on your travels around the globe? Nicole: My sister spent her honeymoon in the Maldives and brought me back an incredible body lotion from the hotel spa {pictured above} called Angsana Pure Gold Body Lotion. It's lightweight with flecks of gold that add the perfect amount of shimmer. I love wearing it on a night out! I also love the Kajal Kohl Eyeliner I found in Dubai---it lasts longer than anything I've ever tried.
