6 beauty essentials for a summer getaway!

6 Beauty Essentials for a Summer Getaway!In my book summer isn’t over until after Labor Day Weekend, so there is still plenty of time to go on summer weekend getaway! Whether it’s to the city, a cabin, or the beach, there are six beauty products that I always have in my bag.

Red Oxx Gator Carry On BagSpeaking of bags, I truly believe I have found the perfect one:  the Red Oxx Gator Carry On Bag ($125). I bought this in red for a recent trip to Spain and it was PERFECT. I could not believe how many things I could stuff into this rugged little baby and still have room. It’s exactly what you need for a weekend getaway – room for all your clothes and your products, and it is the size of a large purse.

Six summer getaway beauty essentialsAlong with the perfect bag, here are six products I was sent to test that you will want to always have packed so you can just grab and go on any last-minute adventure:Design.Me Puff.Me Volumizing Cloud Mist

  1.  Design.Me Puff.Me ($20): This is a tiny but mighty bottle of hair rescue. The spray powder not only soaks up oil and dirt, it also volumizes and gives hair wonderful texture. Bring this instead of bottles of shampoo and conditioner. Puff.Me is available in Cosmoprof stores nationally. I hear that Design.Me is launching other new professional products soon and I can’t wait.Me Clear Spot Treatment DeviceMe Clear Spot Treatment DeviceMe Clear Spot Treatment Device
  2. Me Clear Spot Treatment Device ($60):  An absolute must for any trip! This small device is exactly what you need when you get that one big zit brewing under your skin. You know how that goes…everything is great until you feel a little pressure, a little soreness, and you realize there is a mega-blemish brewing that is going to totally ruin your weekend. The Me Clear Spot Treatment Device is your savior.  Me Clear Spot Treatment DeviceJust press it against the area and the blue light goes to work, painlessly and quickly – the blue LED light makes eruptions vanish overnight through a combination of blue light, sonic vibration, and gentle warming. Standing there for the full two minutes can seem a little tedious, but I am astounded by the results and will never be without this gem.Saje Pocket PharmacySaje Pocket Pharmacy
  3. Saje Pocket Pharmacy ($59.95):  Despite every effort, getting sick on a vacation happens. This awesome little pharmacy has therapeutic remedy roll-ons:
    Peppermint Halo – headache relief
    Stress Release – promotes relaxation 
    Pain Release – reduce inflammation and muscle pain 
    Immune – helps alleviate cold symptoms 
    Eater’s Digest – helps soothe upset stomachs 

    So go ahead and eat too much, drink too much, stay up too long…there’s a remedy for every symptom of partying too much and having more fun that a person probably should.Soap & Paper Factory Jasmine Perfume Oil

  4. Soap & Paper Factory Jasmine Perfume Oil ($16):  It is impossible to describe how amazing this jasmine scent is. It really is a little bottle of summer and tucks so nicely away in a bag or pocket. One discreet roll onto wrists and behind the ears is all you need to smell beyond amazing.Rimmel Kate Sculpting and Highlighting Kit in Coral GlowRimmel Kate Sculpting and Highlighting Kit
  5. Rimmel Kate Sculpting and Highlighting Kit in Coral Glow ($7):  This beautiful Kate Moss palette has three shades for highlighting, contouring, and defining cheeks. You won’t need a separate eyeshadow palette – just use your fingers and pat onto eyelids for a beautiful glowy look.Rimmel Super Curler Mascara
  6. Rimmel Super Curler Mascara ($6): Even on the most low maintenance vacations I always make sure to put on some mascara. This mascara lifts so I don’t even bring an eyelash curler, and it really lasts in the heat.

Now keep that bag packed with these essentials and you’ll just need to throw in some shorts, a bathing suit, and a cover up (my picks below!!) for an awesome summer getaway.  – Lisa
