Skin Care I’m Bringing to the Icehotel

I’m very diligent about keeping my skin moisturized. It can be difficult because on the spectrum of oily to dry, my skin is much closer to dry. Next month I’m traveling to Sweden to visit the Icehotel! I’m expecting some extreme temperatures, so I’m being proactive about keeping my skin hydrated in such cold weather. I also like to pack light when I travel, so I’ll only be bringing the most efficient products. Here are a few of them:


Glossier Super Bounce

  1. La Mer Moisturizing Cream – super thick and nourishing. Doesn’t absorb immediately, which I love because it acts as a sort of barrier between my skin and the elements.
  2. Glossier Super Bounce – hyaluronic acid holds moisture in the skin; loads and loads of moisture
  3. Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist – a quick way to re-hydrate your skin throughout the day
  4. Clarins Instant Light Comfort Oil – a very comfortable and moisturizing lip oil; not sticky at all
  5. Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask – I put this mask on when I’m on any flight over three hours. When I take it off at my destination, my skin is always plump and juicy!

Do you have any skin care favorites that you can’t travel without? Let me know in the comments!

Everyone Needs A Hero

I really want to explain how much I love the Glossier Body Hero body wash and cream, but I don’t think I can get the point across. I like the oil wash formula because it cleans but doesn’t dry out my skin, but the main draw for me is the fragrance. I. love. the. scent. The top note is neroli, which I’ve never used before this duo, but it is so good. After use, the scent isn’t overpowering, but it’s noticeable on the skin for at least a few hours afterward. And I love that when I go back into the bathroom after a shower that my entire bathroom smells like a lavish garden. The Glossier perfecting cream adds another layer of the fragrance, thus extending the wear time. I notice the orange note is more prevalent in the cream rather than the body wash. This last year I’ve made a conscious effort to only buy things that I absolutely love, and this has made the cut. It turns a shower into a whole experience for me. Love. it.
